What is the best time for our portrait session?
Every wedding photographer will tell you – golden hour is where the money’s at. An hour before the sun sets will give you the most delicious light and you will look like a couple of saints. If golden hour is not doable at all (boo), it’s best to schedule the session after the ceremony and before the reception party.
Omg, what if it rains?
We take a couple of umbrellas, put on our wellingtons and we dance in the rain. There’s no such thing as bad weather on your wedding day, it will be special no matter how the sky looks that day. And I’ll be there to capture the way it was and maybe rain will become that tiny bit more special in your life.
I don’t like to pose for photos / I feel weird in front of the camera, is that OK?
Totally! 90% of my couples say this to me. No one is born ready to strike a pose and that’s why you have me. I have years of experience and quite a few tricks up my sleeve to make sure you look relaxed and not weird at all in your pictures.
Do we need props for the photo session?
Only if we must. I prefer to focus on real emotions, the way you look at each other, the true you instead of props that are cool on Pinterest this year and will be out of fashion next year. Let’s make your photos timeless and full of love. If we must use props, it’s important to keep them truthful to you and what you like. Good rule is roughy like this – don’t go horse riding, if you never been on a horse.
Do you offer wedding albums?
Yes! I am a strong believer that wedding photography lives it’s best live when it’s printed. I am happy to create an custom album. I use fine art matt paper that took me almost half a year to source so I am dang proud of it! Drop me a line and we can arrange a meet up to pick up cloth samples and to create you album design.
Where are you based?
I am based in the beautiful Riga, Latvia.
Do you travel for weddings?
100%. Traveling is second nature to me and experiencing new cultures is a privilege that I never take for granted. Check out my Instagram profile to see, if I’m coming to a city near you soon!
All of this sounds amazing, can we see a brochure?
Get in touch and I’ll be happy to send you a brochure with information about the coverage options, what is included, my work ethic and all that jazz.
