Hi, I’m Sylvia
I am a creative soul, a quiet observer, a visual storyteller. I am delighted to see you here and truly humbled to be considered as your wedding photographer. Please take a moment and scroll down for the kind of information I am most often asked relating to weddings and photography. I truly hope these few words from me to YOU plus a bunch of favourite images taken recently, will help you get a very good feel of my work and what it is like to have me as your wedding photographer.
You said ‘ YES’ or asked ‘ WILL YOU… ?’ and now you are on a look out
You will have a couple of things to organise but once you have chosen your wedding date and decided on where you would like to marry each other, this is when you should drop me a line. 2019 is pretty full (I have some dates still available so do get in touch if you are saying ‘I do’ this year!) and 2020 is now booking fast as well.
I photograph weddings because…
People and their stories fascinate me and capturing the moments in the most raw and honest form satisfies me, I am driven by these authentic often intimate moments. I love working with relaxed couples, whose priority is to have the best possible time on their wedding day. That is all.
YOUR WEDDING IS A SPECIAL DAY AND I WILL TREAT IT LIKE NO OTHER ONE. IT IS UNIQUE, UNIQUE TO YOU!
ARE WE A GOOD FIT?
First things first, play press and see if you feel it!
It is crucial for me to like what I do and the kind of photography my Couples receive from me. If you like what the following slideshow is made of – that is fantastic. We are on the same page and I would love to hear more from you.
YOUR WEDDING DAY BY SPELLBOUND
I love how different every wedding is.
My goal is to capture the day as it naturally unfolds while blending into the background. Taking a step back allows for only the most honest and true moments to happen, leaving all the room for only the real connections and emotions to present themselves.
I will be there to capture these moments.
On the wedding day, I usually arrive 2 hours before to the ceremony and photograph in a documentary manner. I only step in offering a bit of guidance during the family and couple’s portraits.
Every stage of the wedding day is as significant to me as the two of you saying your vows.
I look for not only these beautiful looking moments showcasing your wedding dress or stunning flowers, but also the more backstage events which you may not even notice on the day. These will become a true feast to your eyes and become very treasured visual memories that will stay with you for many years to come.
Do I shoot off the shot list and do you need to prepare one for me?
As a professional photographer, I simply do not need one. Also, sticking to a list leaves LITTLE TO NO room for creativity and beautiful moments may simply be missed if your photographer is too busy ticking the shots off the list.
Every wedding is different, and so my job and goal is to capture and preserve your day in the most TRUE to the actual events way.
Shooting a number of story telling photographs and my hands off approach are the key in capturing that vibe of your wedding day
You just need
to focus on each other and
enjoy the day!
GUIDING NOT POSING
Except for a bunch of portraits where I will step in and offer a little guidance, may even get a little creative as we spend these few moments together, there rest will be captured as-it-happens.
”BUT… WE HATE HAVING OUR PHOTOS TAKEN!”
That is okay! Not every one loves the camera – in fact, most of us do not. What you truly need to do is focus on the day and EACH OTHER, which will be easy on the day. It is going to be all about you and you will want to have a moment away from guests to focus on the other half you have just married!
Trust me, you will enjoy this part of the wedding day.
I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THE FEELING OF THE DAY THROUGH THE PHOTOGRAPHS YOU WILL RECEIVE FROM ME.
For the rest and majority of the day actually, I will be floating around taking candid photographs of you and your guests. It is important to me that you are having the best possible day and that to me is simply by spending it with the ones who matter the most to you. I do not want to keep you away from your guests long, and the few moments that we will spend on portraits will be laid back, stress free and I guarantee enjoyable.
What you will receive from me is a large collection of natural, dynamic, creative and romantic images – a photographic reportage of your day including macro shots of your bridal details, mixed with the action shots, backstage guests photographs, and a lot of beautiful portraits thrown into it.
I am truly humbled for you to consider me to be your wedding photographer so let me simply say THANK YOU!
