Things you should know
It’s been a while since I started using a camera with intention. It has been my meditation ever since.
If you are looking for someone to tell you what you should do during your wedding day, I don’t think I will be a good fit for you.
But, if you are in search of the truthful and honest photography. If you think weddings are about fun and doing things your way. If you are ready to be open and joyful and vulnerable, I think that we can do great things together.
Have a look. If you like what you see, send an email, give me a call, a buzz, a ring and we’ll go on a journey.
P.S. If you ever wondered what to ask your wedding photographer, there are some questions for inspiration. Just scroll down.
~ Some Questions ~
When did you became a wedding photographer?
I started with photography way back when in 2008, when I actually started thinking what I want to say with my photos. I started shooting weddings professionally in 2010. Before that I had zero interest in telling something with my photos. A tourist really.
Where are you based?
I am based in Europe. More specifically, Skopje, Macedonia.
Will you travel for photography?
Yes. I did and would travel to capture your special day. Feel free to reach out for more information about destination photography.
Describe your style.
I would describe my style as honest. It is not pretty, nor ugly. It is, for a lack of better words – storytelling, candid and laid back. I try to capture the day as it unfolds and stay true to the emotions during the day. I am a very introverted type of photographer. Trying to be as inconspicuous possible. I do not urge people to pose, but if someone asks me for a photo, I will take it. My goal is for you to relax and enjoy the day, while I try to capture those precious fleeting moments that you will show your children and grandchildren in the years to come.
How do you prepare for a wedding?
Besides charging batteries and emptying memory cards, I usually ask as much as possible for details: number of guests, agenda, venue, group photos needed… I check the weather for the day and prep for a photo shoot. I want to know if there is a special guest (besides the usual suspects) or if there is anything I need to know for the day.
What’s included in your packages?
Whatever I do on the wedding day, the following is part of Every wedding package.
All photos will be edited with my custom presets (color correction, cropping, tonality, exposure).
All photos will be delivered in two sizes (for print or web share, in individual folders respectively).
License to share and print the photos for personal use.
Online gallery with a selection of photos.
Help to find a proper print shop.
A photoshoot on the day (if time allows).
Do you edit your photos?
Yes. I personally edit all of my photos. Every. Single. One.
Is there anything you won’t do?
Yes. I will never sell photos during the wedding day. People from Macedonia know what I mean. I will also never change my style in order to book a wedding just to earn more money. I am very picky about who I work with. And I shoot no more than 35-40 weddings a year. It is better to recommend a different photographer than to have unhappy and unsatisfied clients.
Are you a pro wedding photographer?
Yes. Being a wedding photographer is my main thing. It is not a hobby or something to do on weekends. I am fully committed to what I do and to my craft.
I am a fan of Monty Python and British comedy in general (Black Adder anyone?). I also like snooker and occasionally watch some tennis and football. Used to watch much more sports, but don’t have the time for that anymore. I am very much into chocolate and like to cook on occasion. Do not have a preferred drink, but I do appreciate a cold drink in the summer and mulled wine in winter. I think I am the first Macedonian to cover an same-sex wedding back in 2016, but because of the anti LGBT sentiment in my country, I can’t disclose the identity of the couple. Nor any of the photos. Which is a shame because it was an amazing wedding. Uuurgh!
