Visual storytellers of unforgettable love stories

In this page you will find photo + video packages info.

DEAR BRIDE AND GROOM

Congratulations on your engagement! 


Planning your wedding is the most exciting and important day of your life and it stands to reason that you would want it captured beautifully.


That's where WE come in.


WHY CHOOSE US?


We will be visual storytellers who capture the emotional essence and timeless beauty of your love story. With a romantic approach and narrative style, we are committed to providing you with a collection of exceptional images that narrate your unique and exciting journey.

WHAT SHOTS WE WILL CAPTURE?


As Wedding Storytellers, we understand the significance of capturing authentic moments without posing our clients. We acknowledge that many individuals might feel uncomfortable or uneasy in front of a camera. Therefore, we prioritize the organic flow of events, focusing on essential moments rather than creating a posed and stressful environment.


We don't aim to list and rigidly follow 50 different shots like "Bride's parents whispering to each other," as this could potentially disrupt the natural atmosphere of your wedding. Instead, during our consultation, we'll discuss a range of standard wedding shots and give you the opportunity to highlight which moments hold the most importance for you.


Our primary emphasis will be on capturing those crucial moments flawlessly, ensuring they are beautifully preserved in your collection. The remaining time will be dedicated to capturing organic shots that authentically reflect the essence of your wedding day.


Our approach ensures that your wedding feels like an organic celebration rather than a staged photoshoot, allowing genuine emotions and moments to shine through in our photography.

AFTER THE WEDDING


Following your wedding, within a maximum of 72 hours, you'll receive an exclusive sneak peek of your photos – a curated selection of approximately 40 to 50 beautifully edited images. These are specifically designed for you to share cherished moments with your loved ones and showcase your special day to the world.


The remaining collection of images will be meticulously edited and delivered to you within 4 to 7 weeks, allowing us to dedicate the necessary time and attention to perfecting each picture. Please note that delivery times may slightly vary based on the season and the complexity of the editing process.


Moreover, if video services are part of your package, we commit to delivering the final edited videos within approximately 5 to 7 weeks after the completion of the photo editing process. This timeline ensures that every detail is perfected to reflect the true essence and beauty of your unforgettable day.


PHOTOGRAPHY + VIDEO PACKAGES


Embarking on a journey from a fairytale-like traditional church setting to a modern, vibrant outdoor festival theme, I am committed to capturing your essence and showcasing your best self in every frame.


To accommodate diverse preferences and budgets, I've meticulously crafted four distinct service packages, each tailored to meet your specific needs. However, all packages are customizable and are just a base.


Despite the differences in services offered, all packages come with straightforward payment terms: Secure your booking by making a 40% deposit, and the remaining 60% is due just 10 days before your wedding day – making the payment process seamless and stress-free.


Just choose a package that resonates with your vision, and entrust the rest to me. I'm dedicated to transforming your moments into everlasting memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime.

Can I do an underwater photoshoot if I can't swim?
