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.
Here are a few things that I have put together for you – take a look. These few pieces of information cover the most commonly asked questions and I believe you will find them helpful.
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 much booked out and 2020 is now booking fast as well.
I photograph weddings because…
People and their stories fascinate me, 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 open minded Couples, Who truly value the now and enjoy this special moment, Who are happy to loose themselves in it (or simply enjoy them!)
I will carefully capture these one of a kind moments
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 family photographs where I will step in and offer a little guidance, there rest will be captured as-it-happens.
”BUT… WE HATE HAVING OUR PHOTOS TAKEN!”
That is okay! There are a lot of mixed feelings I feel too when I know I will be photographed.
Let me guess:
You know you will feel awkward
You think you will look cheesy
You do not know what to do with yourself when asked to pose.. etc.
Majority of the day I will be floating around taking candid photographs of you and your guests
focusing on the EMOTIONS, CONNECTIONS and the FUN every one will have on the day.
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.
Photography to me is about REAL MOMENTS! and these cannot be staged or posed.
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.
Capturing your Wedding Day is so important to me. This is why, it is crucial for me to work with only the best and creative videographer to create the most beautiful, romantic and meaningful visual memory for the two of you. If you are thinking of having a videographer on your day, you should check out Ginta’s work from the Pilgrim Films. He is a dream to work with, such a gentleman and not to mention talented.
Drop him an email – he will take very good care of you.
I am truly humbled for you to consider me to be your wedding photographer so let me simply say THANK YOU!
I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY
