Wedding photography is a very challenging type of photography. A wedding photographer must capture the moment, control everything on the spot, be alert the whole time and be inspiring for his bride and groom so as to make them feel comfortable in front of the camera and free their emotions with no hesitation.

But most of all, a wedding photographer must be a head of everything, in order to make right use of time, which is the key for a successful wedding-day-photo-session.

The secret of creating beautiful wedding images is a combination of many things… The “eye” of the wedding photographer is the most important factor, the edgy technical equipment, the technical skills to make the best out of that gear, the right light and how that light is used each time, the scenery where the wedding is taking place and last but not least the feeling each couple shares.

However, the big questions is this: What makes a photo from “good” to “great”?

Do you want to know what I think? I think that besides the basic factors of the “eye”, the gear, the light and the location, what really shifts the level is the photographer’s PERSONALITY. A great mentor once said “if you want to be a better photographer, than be a better person”. I believe that’s true. It is not only about the scene or the people we photograph, it is also (or mainly…) about our feelings being projected on that subject! It is about the need to express ourselves, to create, to share, to offer.

For me, being a wedding photographer is more than a way to make a living… It is a was to live! I often say to my couples: “It is fair for you to pay me for my work, but it is unfair for me to take the money… Because I’ve earned so much more from working with you!”

It is the feeling, the experience, the challenge, the excitement, the final satisfaction… It is about the JOY  of being a wedding photographer!

So thank you guys for giving me the chance to live all this again and again…

Yours,
Clio…
