        MICHELE & LIDWINA
        For years, Lidwina and I divvied up the day in a fairly traditional way. Lidwina would photograph the guys getting ready, I would photograph the girls getting ready, she would take the groomsmen, I would take the bridesmaids, and we would generally leap frog throughout the rest of the event, capturing what was needed based on our different strengths.
        We just naturally fell into a groove that made sense and that seemed like it worked for us.
        And it did, for the most part.
        Until We got bored.
        They were starting to feel a little stale and too ‘standard.
        Our creativity wasn’t as alive as it used to be.
        When we asked ourselves why we weren’t as creative as we once were, we realized that both of felt like we didn’t have the room to get creative because we were so focused on our individual ‘responsiblities.’
        What I realized is that while shooting something as critical as the ceremony, neither of us was really willing to take a chance on shooting something creative because we were both concerned with getting the must have shots.
        Ever since then, Lidwina and I have developed a system in which one of us, alternately, is entirely responsible for the must have traditional shots throughout the day, and the other person is completely responsible for ‘getting creative.’
        So if it’s my turn to be RESPONSIBLE, I’m in charge of setting up and taking things like the standard wedding party portrait while Lidwina runs around and captures images that are CANDID AND CREATIVE.
        One of us is creating beautiful yet standard images, while the other is completely responsible for the creative stuff that we all love!
        My job is to shoot from my head that part of the day, her job is to shoot completely from the heart.
        Ever since we began developing this method, we’ve created more images that we’re proud of and that have driven our portfolio to the places we want to go, while serving our couples and their families with beautiful images that tell the story completely.

        "my passion for a great story, a carving for lovely things, families coming together, the emotional moment of the first dance that splits seconds as loving expression breaks across the faces of husband and wife, all of that's why I"am a wedding photographer"

        “OUCH!, THAT”S EXPENSIVE”

        If you’ve ever worked with a good photographer, then you’ve learned that good photography is not cheap.
        Why? Because good photography is not easy.

        The photographer might make it look so. We might not seem stressed or even like we are having a lot of fun, but do not confuse expertise with ease. They are not the same thing.

        Believe me, bad photography waste memories. And the truth is, bad photography is much more expensive then good photography!

         

        “NOT THE ARROW, BUT THE ARCHER”

        Good photography, requires vision, passion, zeal, inherent visual aptitude, and last but not the least cutting edge technology which will materialise your vision and make it stand out from the rest, by making it look crisp, fresh and appealing.

        Well, we are very talented and experienced photographer but without the state of the art equipment we can offer you we could not exploit creativity as we do, or we would not take pictures in rain, snow or in poor or bad light situation.

         

        PRICES & PACKAGES

        As professional photographers with over 25 years of experience, we had a lot of time to see what works best in term of price presentation. Some clients love the idea of a pre set wedding photography package but I firmly believe every wedding is different and you should not to include anything you do not want in your wedding photography. For that reason we only offer an a la carte list as coverage option.

        Anything you’d like is up to you!

        You can stick with just hourly coverage, you can add an engagement session, rehearsal dinner coverage, an album, parent albums. We can truly customize any pairing of items to create a collection that is yours and yours alone.

         

         

         

         

         

        Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
