Santorini Photo Sessions
Based In: Santorini - Greece
Other Locations: Florence (Italy) - Stockholm (Sweden)

I was born in Thessaloniki, in the north part of Greece and my first involvement in photography was because of my father, who is a photographer, so from a very young age I was helping my father in a studio and in still life photography mostly, learning all the “secrets” and I was really very lucky not only that I had someone to help me, but also because I grow up in a period that the film, the black chamber and all those magical items were ruling the world of the photographer. The last 5 years my base is in the beautiful island of Santorini and working as a Santorini wedding photographer, trying to do my best and capture this special day for you. Most couples come for their honeymoon photoshoot in Santorini or their pre/post wedding photo session, so my goal is to accomplish a result that will make you more than happy and meet your expectation of your dream photography session in Santorini.

My style in photography is more photo journalistic, I like to capture natural images and creative portraits but I am willing to follow your needs and personal style, for more editorial photoshoot. Generally, I cover all the mainland in Greece, not only Santorini, but I can also travel international upon request.

Andres Barria Photography
Based In: Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco Mexico
Other Locations: Cuba - Havana l US - California, New York l Mexico - San Miguel De Allende, Mexico City, Monterrey, Saltillo, Guadalajara, Cancun

"To capture a moment as if a caress unfolding, an essence, a point of existence, of coming into being and perishing away, where the hidden lens reveals and signifies forms unseen: the ephemeral and ethereal, those auras of the falling hours -- auroras and crepuscules -- forever immortalized in their sublime ecstasy. To photograph as if an entire philosophy: to capture chance in pomp and circumstance so as to construct a splendid classic sonata that eternizes and pierces time in being and being in time. Andrés’ intentional eyes become a poetic lens: he enters the harmony of an event, of a landscape, of a soul and transforms a series of instants and perspectives into song that is poesy and poesy that becomes myth”….

In little over 14 years, autodidact and visually gifted Chilean photographer Andrés Barría Davison has mastered the art of photo-poesy and tonal geometry to commemorate Mexico’s indigenous cultures, its enchanting fiestas, weddings, rites, and the tonal beauties of its peoples in the infinite quotidian. He conjugates the heroic symphony of Mexico’s vivid streets and squares, markets and rural villages with the mesmerizing visages, epic emotions and haunting landscapes to resurrect a land tormented between the sublime and the tragic, the transcendent and the immanent. Barria Davison’s camera, Mexico’s metaphor, is an exhilarating hermetic ladder ascending and descending the totalities of Mexico’s millenary and capacious existence  the divine, the indigenous and the profane  in order to evoke Mexico’s idyllic cosmic melancholy against its oblivion: a hurricane.
Born in 1966 in an artistic milieu, Barría Davison relocated from Chile’s Straight of Magellan near his native Punta Arenas to Chile’s Atacama Desert, and immigrated to Vancouver, Canada in 1995, and to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 2004. At the age of 17 he got his first camera while doing summer work in a Kodak retail store in Chile, since then he has been in love and obsessed with Photography.

Andres started photographing weddings and against his wishes in 2008 after a many requests from friends and clients, today he is considered one of the most reputable and versatile photographers in Mexico. Because his unique style, composition, quality, creativity and exceptional service his boutique photo company located in Puerto Vallarta is recommended by some the most prestigious and exclusives resorts in the area like today; Four Seasons Hotel Punta Mita, Hotel Mousai, Hotel Garza Blanca, La Tranquila, Westin and Hotel Imanta.

Since 2011, he has won many awards, most notably from the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards for his two novel Mexican images “Two Sisters and the Cat” and an “Old Lady in the Kitchen,” also selected by magnum photographer Steve McCurry and exhibited at the Borges Cultural Gallery in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In 2014 alone he was given the certification by the Secretary of Tourism SECTUR in Mexico as a Destination Wedding Specialist.

Inspired by Casasola and Chambi, Alvarez Bravo and Garduño, Hector Garcia and Iturbide, Ortiz Monasterio, Koudelka and Kertesz, Cruz, Meyer and Salgado, Barría Davison’s photo-poesy spans Mexico’s odyssey in 30,000 riveting images. His photographs are fractals whose spirit is a Petrarchan sonnet. They conjugate cosmos and chaos, the divine and beings  the cosmotheandric  in light and shadow in a photographic poem whose octaves and sestets intimate presence and luminescence, and are resurrections of Mexico’s ancestral spirit gaze.

His commercial atelier, Andres Barria Photography, renowned for its lyric bridal and rites of passage compositions, singularly captures with visionary symmetry the ominous splendour of Mexico’s fleeting odyssey, weaving equal sentiment with equal light, with superb artistry. Weddings, gatherings, and rites of passage transcend in the image, becoming idyllic symphonies in memory’s immanent tapestry.

Andres is available for weddings, portrait, architecture, engagements, fashion and photo sessions anywhere in the world.


Andres Barria works has been published in Magazines like, Hola!, Chic Magazine, Novias de Pasarela Mexico, VIP Vallarta, ArquiTK Magazine Mexico City, Black and White Vallarta, Property Journal Vallarta, Sierra Madre de Monterrey, Arts Takes Miami 2012 Book etc..

Seychelles Wedding Photographer
Based In: Seychelles (Mahé, Praslin and La Digue)
Other Locations: Seychelles Archipelago - Amirantes Islands, Mahé island, Praslin Island, La Digue Island l La Réunion l Mauritius

Born in Paris - France (capital of the fashion photography), I am a professional photographer based in Seychelles with 20 years of experience, specialized in the creative wedding photography.

I am not a destination photographer that would charge you for transportation and accommodation in Seychelles, with a minimum of 1 or 2 days photo-reportage. Living in Seychelles for the past 15 years, I have acquired an excellent knowledge about seasons, multi-locations, tides and weather in Seychelles.

I have great enthusiasm about wedding photography and I operate all around the Archipelago of Seychelles Islands including Mahé island, Praslin island, la Digue island and the outer-islands (known as: the Amirantes). I provide truly amazing Photographic reportage and/or Video coverage, all year round.

I might not be the best wedding photographer in the world, but I consider myself as a contemporary, creative wedding photographer with European background, an expert eye, some professional cameras and lenses and most probably counting among the top wedding photographers in Seychelles.


I can do lifestyle wedding photography or traditional wedding photography, depending on your personal taste. My approach is subtle, friendly and flexible so that I always brings out the best and creative wedding photography. My goal during your wedding ceremony is to be invisible, capturing all magic moments of your special day, adding some creative portraiture after the ceremony, on the hotel beach or in your resort. I am offering several packages to my clientele trying to remain an affordable wedding photographer in Seychelles. However, if required I can also work half day or full day on customizable "a la carte" photo-session. I also offer combination packages which provide discounts if you would like to order multiple reportage (combo photo and video services, for example).

If you have come to reading my bio, you might be looking for an engagement photographer or an event photographer, perhaps regarding newly-weds photo-reportage during your honeymoon in paradise, with your bride and groom outfits for a trash the dress photo session, or simply for some family portraits during your holidays in Seychelles, then you have knocked to the right door.

Based In: San Francisco
Other Locations: Napa/Sonoma, South San Francisco, San Jose, Pleasanton, Berkeley, Bay area

I loved photography since I was child, and studied photography in 1995 as a senior in high school. Back then it was film and I still kept the first picture that I shot and developed in the school's dark room. I explored many different professions after graduating from California State University of Fresno with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. However, life took me back to my first passion, photography.

Sometimes we need to go back to the beginning in order to go forward so here I'm today doing photography as a full time career with steep dedication.

My Approach

“The most important thing that will happen on your wedding day is that you are going to get married.....”

It may sound obvious but this simple philosophy guides my whole approach. I try to capture the full story of your day so that in twenty years when you look at your wedding pictures you can remember what happened on the day when “happily ever after” started.

A wedding is not a fashion shoot, and couples are not models who are there to perform for the photographer’s whims. Your wedding should be fun, romantic and memorable for the right reasons. I pack light and move quickly and work to make the formal photo session a fun and romantic experience that adds to your wedding. Outside of the formal photo session I stay out of the way as much as possible and shoot more candid image to let your day unfold as you intended it.

I will work with your team of wedding professionals so that you have the best wedding possible. I provide all my clients with the sunset time on their wedding day, which allows them to plan their day so that they get the best light of the day for their pictures while still getting the wedding they want.

About Me

I’m a photographer and I mostly shoot weddings, however I also do interiors, architecture and the occasional commercial job to keep life interesting.

I spent 15 years in Marketing before taking the plunge into what I should have done as a career in the first place, I’ve been taking pictures since I was a teenager but I’ve been doing this as my full time day job since 2009. It’s the best decision I have ever made.

While life in Barbados is not all one big long vacation, it IS a great place to live, and I do get to the beach often (even if it is to photograph a wedding!)

I’d love to work with you on your special day. To see more of my work explore my website: Barbados wedding photographer.

We believe that every wedding is unique and every couple is special too. The key to our photo reports is to know the bride and groom to create a climate of confidence and this is the way to have, firstly, a great time, and secondly, to get spectacular pictures.

In "Antonio Moreno Photography" we decided to do a different kind of photography, looking for a natural relationship between the photographer and you, the bride and groom, in order to show up in the photos as you are, natural and without artifice. It is also very important for us that our photos show the feelings, the emotions and beauty.

We are responsible for the entire creative process, from first contact with you until the process of post production and layout of our Photo Albums.

To choose people who’d be the ones to photograph your wedding day is much harder and more important job than it appears to be. The reason is simple: the memory of this single amazing day of your life will become your family heritage. Keeping exactly this thought in my mind, I become fairly obsessed with making the absolute most out of that day in the photos I’d make for you… and all those generations that’ll come after you. Another thing I’m obsessed with is the whole photography making process. This obsession started unusually early in my life.

If destiny is a real thing, seems like mine was sealed when I was only 1 year old and when I got my very first camera (Yashica) as a 1st birthday gift from my grandma. It was actually a wish made by my dad back then and he was the one using it for our family photos (our heritage!) for 18 years, until I discovered it was my birthday gift and claimed it back. It was a start of my adventure with dark room, black & white films and taking so many photos of just about everything. It all got more serious when I started my wedding photography business in 2008 on a side, along with my engineer career. But then it became a life occupation in July 2014 when I quit my engineer job and got married to my wonderful wife, taking some photos of our wedding with the camera from the beginning of this story. The turning point for that business decision was an award winning photo in the annual National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2013, that brought so many new adventures in my life. Today I am mainly destination photographer in Croatia and all over Europe as well, but also a proud award winning member of ISPWP, Fearless Photographers and Best of Wedding Photography. I’m based in Hvar, an amazing town that I know so well, but I love working in Split, Dubrovnik, Rovinj, Brac, Vis, Pag and all over Europe.

My constant mission is to capture the most fun, emotional, significant and challenging moments of your wedding day in the most natural and storytelling way. All those moments together will be telling a unique story of your wedding day for years to come and I am honoured even now to be considered for photographing them.

I'm Jasmine Star and I'm an international wedding photographer based in Orange County, California. Though I've garnished awards for my work and was voted Top 10 Wedding Photographer by American Photo Magazine (in 2009), my crowning accomplishment was making meatloaf for the first time last year. I, however, still need to work on making the meatloaf edible.

Beginning just four years ago, I developed a voice and online brand by leveraging social media and developing techniques to empower clients to become the voice of my brand. I live with my husband and fabulous dog, and at times struggle to determine who is my favorite. I love to eat chocolate, run on the beach, and spend too much time writing on my blog. I hope to take the wedding industry by storm. Or learn how to make meatloaf. Whichever comes first.

Fabio Mirulla tuscany wedding photographer
Based In: Florence, Tuscany – Italy
Other Locations: Italy - Amalfi Coast, Sardinia, Sicily | Greece | UK | All Destinations Worldwide

Hello, I am Fabio Mirulla. I was born in 1986 in a small village near Florence, Siena and Arezzo. Since I was young I began to appreciate the beauty of the landscapes that surround me, so loved all over the world, so when in 2005 I started working as a wedding photographer, I‘ve tried to realize services in which the beauty of the places would exalt and make unique, thanks to the play of lights, your special day.

My photography will look as through the keyhole, it will never be invasive or blatant, will capture moments and emotions, always on tiptoe, with the privileged point of view of those who share your happiness, but with years of experience in photographic services on his shoulders.

So you will see the tense expression of the groom waiting for the bride to come, the tears of happiness of a friend who reads his speech tried for days, the first dance barefoot on the grass, a stolen photo of a kiss on the forehead at the sunset… moments that will remain indelibly fixed in the photographs and in your memories.

Linus Moran Photography

I've been telling stories through my photography for the last 20 years. From a career working for the finest UK national news titles, to working as a foreign correspondent based in the Balkans for several years. Capturing a story within one defining shot, to documenting it within a photo essay. Naturally capturing a wedding day through minimal intervention, firmly believing that the day is about the people, their connections and its context.

Persuit of a flowing narrative has led me to embrace the use of audio recordings within my work to produce Wedding Photofilms. Creating a media presentation blending both stills photography and audio recordings of the vows and speeches. Rich in tone, emotion and context its adds a unique perspective having you tell the story of the your own words. Take a look at my website to see some recent examples.

Best of Wedding Photography is an invitation-only association of top wedding photographers. We look for photographers who have achieved high levels of success in the industry, with accompanying recognition by brides, and follow photography professionals.

BOWP is the most selective wedding photography association in the industry. If you are the type of photographer who is competitive for entry into BOWP, then you already know that there are many wedding photography associations. You have also probably noticed that there is constant pressure to reduce standards to increase membership numbers and revenue. We make a concerted effort to resist that temptation so we can be the one place photographers and brides can go and know with confidence that they can find a list of some of the most established and successful photographers in every city, town, or region globally.

That's the main mission of Best of Wedding Photography.


Membership in Best of Wedding Photography costs $99 per year. For most photographers at this level of success, our fee represents a very small expenditure that very easily pays for itself. We've tried to place the price as low as we can while still being able to fund the management and ongoing improvement of the group.


BOWP Members receive a significant array of benefits. This includes:

  • A dedicated member page on the BOWP directory.
  • An account and the right to blog directly on the BOWP blog.
  • The right to display BOWP badges and logos on websites and promotional materials.
  • Client leads and traffic. Direct client leads and traffic from the BOWP website. Leads from our site also tend to be those at the higher end of the market. We do not take any commissions on client leads.
  • SEO benefits. The SEO benefits of membership are substantial. BOWP has a very well-established site and links from BOWP to our member's site which has significant SEO benefit. Members can add links from both their membership pages and blog posts, and members are also free - within reason and good taste - to use keyword-focused anchor text in their links, which is one the most important SEO ranking factors.
  • Conversion rate benefits. As most photographers know, adding credibility indicators to your website and promotional material can strongly improve conversion rates - the percentage of visitors to your site that contact you to inquire about services. Indicating membership in "Best of Wedding Photography" and adding "Best of Wedding Photography" badges and logos has this kind of effect, much like posting about other awards or publications.
  • Promotion of workshops and photographer-oriented products. Many of our members offer workshops and other photographer-centric products and services. Members are free to promote upcoming Workshops on our Workshop page, and we'll also include announcements in our monthly member emails.
  • Connection to other top photographers and influencers in the industry. As a BOWP member, you now share an important connection to some of the most successful photographers in the industry.
  • Recognition. Although less tangible, one benefit is simply recognition of professional success and accomplishment by fellow photographers, vendors, and brides.
  • Periodic other benefits. In addition to the main benefits above, we offer periodic discounts, advice, and services. As a general rule, we see our goal as helping our member-photographers be as successful as possible. Whatever we can do in that respect helps our members, but also the group as a whole.


We have decided to be as transparent as possible in terms of the criteria on which we determine membership. To that end, we've described below the specific criteria we evaluate for each member.

Primary Focus on Weddings. First, we are looking for full-time wedding photographers - those who make their living from photography and focus nearly exclusively on weddings. Conversely, we are less interested in those who shoot weddings periodically on the side.

Total Experience. Second, we're looking for wedding photographers who have been lead shooters for at least 30 weddings.

Recent Frequency of Wedding Commissions + Blog. Third, we want to be sure that all members are still actively shooting weddings. So we want to see how many weddings you've conducted in the last six months. In this respect, blogs are very important. Blogs are best practice, and active blogs generally correlate to other indicators of professional success. But more directly, blogs allow us to see the frequency and quality of recent weddings, and judge "complete" individual weddings rather than overall portfolios. We may also supplement reviews of recent blog posts with reviews of social media engagement.

Quality and Style of Imagery. Fourth, and among the most important criteria on this list, is the quality and style of imagery you produce. In judging imagery, technical accuracy and good composition are not sufficient. We look for photographers who've mastered the basics, and can produce striking, modern images by taking advantage of creative lighting, angles, motion, and other unique compositional elements. We also look for the ability to deploy a modern and artistic style of post processing.

Professional Indicators. Fifth, we look for a critical mass of professional success indicators that demonstrate both professional engagement in the industry as well as recognition by brides, fellow photographers, and others in the industry. This can come in many forms, and it's not necessary that a photographer have all of the above. Please note that testimonials from clients on your website are not sufficient. Some of the indicators we look for are:

  • Memberships. We look for membership in profession associations. Some association are more competitive than others, and we also take that into account.
  • Publications. We look for a history of published photographic work. Again, some publications are more competitive than others, so we take that into account.
  • Awards, Features, and Recognition. We look for any other kinds of awards, features, and recognition. Examples include photo competitions, local newspapers, features in local or national wedding blogs, regional "best vendor" recognitions, and any other kinds of recognition.

Pricing. Sixth, we do lightly consider pricing. Most of our photographers are well-enough established and have enough commissions and referrals that they can charge above average prices for their work. We recognize there are many reasons a photographer may have lower prices, especially geographic region, so we take that into account. But because professional success in the industry tends to be correlated to higher prices, and because photographers operating at a certain level in the same region tend to have similar prices, we do consider this a factor.

Size and Competitiveness of Primary Market. Finally, we also take your geographic marketing into consideration. Certain markets like New York City or San Francisco have large numbers of talented photographers. To avoid having too many photographers listed in our largest and most competitive markets, we may apply even higher standards in these markets.


If you have any further questions about membership, please do not hesitate to contact us at



If based on the above criteria, you would like to be considered for membership, please submit a request for consideration below. We conduct in-depth photographer reviews about every two months.

As a child, my father introduced me to the joys of photography and I think I eventually managed to steal (or perhaps I should say borrow) every piece of camera gear he ever owned. I spent years running around in the mountains photographing wildlife and landscapes without a single human or manmade object of any kind in the images. Then my friends started getting married. And my sister got married. And much to my surprise I enjoyed doing this wedding photography thing. It wasn't long before someone told somebody else and they told someone else and before I knew what was happening, I was being hired on to shoot small weddings. My mom still teases me about the phone call -- Mom, I just got hired to shoot a wedding and they're gonna pay me THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS!

That was 15 years ago. Since then wedding photography has completely taken over my life and I couldn't be happier with the winding roads I've traveled with a camera in hand. Along the way, one of the most valuable photography lessons I've learned is that you can either do a lot of things poorly, or one thing really well. That's why for the past 10 years I've dedicated my business to shooting weddings, and ONLY weddings.

My style is to be a storyteller. I come to your wedding with my mind totally open - no expectations of what can or can't be done in a wedding photo and no expectations of how the story of your day will unfold itself.

Most weddings follow a somewhat traditional outline, but within that framework, every wedding is full of unique twists and small details... so to me, the true art of wedding photography is in the photographer's ability to see the uniqueness of your wedding and capture the day in a complete story. My goal is to create a visual story that will amaze and entertain your family and friends long into the future.

I suppose I've been drawn to wedding photography because I love people and I thrive on the creative challenge of doing something different every day. I truly enjoy meeting new people, seeing new cultures and new places, and most of all, I really do enjoy being a part of your family and your world on such a special occasion. I love that I get to be a witness, and a recorder, and a friend in this incredible moment of your life.

My primary style of shooting during most of the wedding day, is photojournalistic. I prefer to stay in the background quietly documenting everything I see and I won't embarrass you by yelling, Stop! Hold that pose! or anything like that.

During the family group time, I'm not shy - years of substitute teaching and working as a rafting guide (prior to becoming a photographer) taught me a lot about how to wrangle a crowd, so organizing everyone for a couple group shots will not be a problem.

Over the past 10 years I've photographed hundreds of weddings in the US and roughly 50 destination weddings outside the US, in locations such as Jamaica, Mexico, the Bahamas, Aruba, Hawaii, Barbados, Tortola, St. John, St. Thomas, St. Lucia, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Italy, Fiji, Tahiti, and Hong Kong.... Whew! And the list keeps growing all the time as couples surprise me with new destinations I've never even heard of. You brides never cease to amaze me with your cool choices of locations.

In 2006 I was approached by the publisher John Wiley & Sons to write a book on wedding photography. After many grueling months behind the laptop that project finally became a reality and you can now find Digital Wedding Photography: Capturing Beautiful Memories on the shelves at any major bookstore and online at I still can't believe it myself so every time I go into Borders I have to run straight to the photography section to check, and there's my book sitting there on the shelves with all the others.

Prices, contract and calendar can be found on my website as well as a selection of articles I've written that will help you plan your wedding day to get the most out of your photographer. If you don't have a location yet, here are a few suggestions from places I've seen.

I look forward to hearing from you,

I have been shooting weddings since 1991 and today get more pleasure from photographing weddings than ever. As I have gained more experience I am able to achieve much more creative photos for the brides and grooms I make photos for and so get that much more satisfaction from my work. I am documentary and director of choreographed staged photos, these often look natural and un-posed. I love making use of the light that’s available or by use of flash off camera to create powerful and moody photos. Light and how I have this fall on the subject to beautify the photo is what I am looking for. Please look through my portfolio with this in mind to understand where I am coming from.

I am happy to travel wherever a wedding adventure will take me. Although I shoot mainly in the South East of the UK such as London and the Home Counties if your wedding is further afield and you like my style please drop me an email or call and we can have a chat about your wedding day.

I have won over 27 awards since 2008. Last year I won the title of Master Photographer Assoc. South East Region photographer of the year 2012 and this I won a major national award with one of my studio photos.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Unobtrusive. This is the word that I like to use whenever anyone asks me to describe my approach to photographing a wedding. The dictionary definition is simple and concise; not conspicuous or attracting attention. It sums up my philosophy perfectly.

For me, a wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event that should be photographed quietly, sympathetically, and without the photographer dictating what happens in front of him. As soon as a photographer engages the subject or directs or controls the event, the wedding becomes the photographer's idea of what the wedding should look like, rather than what it actually is. Out of respect for the day, I prefer to record it in such a way as to produce images which are honest and truthful, and can be enjoyed for generations to come.

On the wedding day I set myself the challenge of finding pictures without directing, and by only using the available light. Within these pictures I set myself the further challenge. of finding geometry and rhythm; bringing together light, composition, and storytelling into each image. For me, a picture must not only be pleasing to the eye, but it should also have content which is strong enough to evoke an emotional response from the viewer.

For twenty years, photographing weddings has been my sole source of income, and my passion. I've covered over 1,000 wedding assignments in my career for people from all walks of life; from the girl-next-door to celebrities like Kevin Pietersen and Jessica Taylor, Jill Halfpenny and Craig Conway, and Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien.

My work has been exhibited all over Europe, and published worldwide; it has been featured in publications such as The Washington Post, Professional Photographer, British Journal of Photography, and The Master Photographer. I am the only British wedding photographer to be included in American Photo's list of the ten best wedding photographers in the world, and I was voted one of the top five wedding photographers in the world by the BBC and featured in the TV documentary 'Masters of Wedding Photography.' Italian luxury bridal magazine 'Just Married' named me as one of the world's best wedding photographers, and I've been voted 'You and Your Wedding' magazine's wedding photographer of the year three times.

Away from taking pictures, I am an international Ambassador for Canon cameras, and spend time each year education wedding photographers from all over the world.

My studio is based in the beautiful coastal town of Lytham in Lancashire, and although my preference is to work within the North West, I will often consider the occasional assignment further afield.

I’ve been a photographer ever since gaining the front page of my college newspaper with my first assignment. A diploma in photojournalism followed and then some work experience at The Times in London. After two weeks they offered me work as a photographer there. I spent nine years there shooting news and features around the UK and abroad. It is this photojournalism background that shapes my approach to wedding photography. In fact for me, one of the biggest compliments I have received was to be told that my work was “more photojournalism than wedding photography”. When I shoot a wedding, I’m shooting a photo essay.

After winning the award, “Professional Photographer of the Year 2012” for a wedding image and my lead image here. I also recently won “The Best Wedding Photographer - London & the South-East” title at The Wedding Industry Awards 2015. I also won “Highly Commended” in the National Finals of the The Wedding Industry Awards 2015.

I’ve been a photographer all of my adult life. I started at local news agencies and have spent the last 17 years covering news and features for The Times in London, one of the finest broadsheet newspapers in the World. It’s the experience of photographing world leaders and royalty, as well as documenting news around the globe, that gives me a unique take on documenting a wedding. I’ve spent years conveying complex news stories in single images and photo essays. What could be a better background for telling the story of a couples wedding day in photographs?

As well as beautiful documentary photography, I also offer my clients Documentary Photofilms - a short film using the still images together with the sounds of the speeches and the ceremony. It’s a powerful and emotive way to remember the day. Have a look at some examples on my website.

How exciting it will be, after the wedding, to browse your photo collection?

I believe that your wedding day is one of the most important moments of your life together. This day deserves so much attention and surely the best documentation possible.

That’s why I photograph these moments as well as in the role of a reporter I will tell your story: watching everything carefully and taking candid pictures of all memorable moments.

I really love my work and this is the reason why I create unique memories that you can enjoy over the years, you and your lovely family. I use photography to tell the story of your wedding day as it unfolds, spontaneously.

I prefer to let the day’s events take place naturally, trying to always to be ready to capture them in real time, occasionally I like to create a little fun involving couples and / or guests in unexpected photographs that are witty and funny.

However, for most of the day, I try to stay “in the background” as a silent observer, paying great attention to genuine and sincere interactions, ready to capture them. All this with a simple and elegant style, living with you the day of your wedding: emotions, smiles, atmosphere and colors.

Who am I?

I have been a photographer for many years and I live and work in Brescia, near Garda and Como Lakes, and I like working in any place in my beautiful country, places like Venice, Verona, Florence, but also in the wonderful Tuscan hills in the home of the best Italian sparkling wines, the Franciacorta region.

I’m also part of ANFM, the Italian organization that supports excellence in this wonderful profession. Being part of the Italian Association of Wedding Photographers is an important goal for a wedding photographer, and now you can find me also here, in the Best of Wedding Photographers, exciting isn’t it?

I’m really proud to be part of this organizations it is an honor and, at the same time, an incentive to offer always my best, for you and for your story, that is as unique as you are.

In case you are new to WordPress, here are the simple steps to creating your blog post and submitting it for review.

Click Posts >Add New.

  • Pasting Text. To paste text, use the “Plain Text” paste button. This removes embedded formatting from other software programs. Otherwise your text may appear strangely formatted.
  • Subheadings. Add subheadings by clicking on the arrow by the word “paragraph.” The preferred subheading choice on BOWP is “Headings 4.” Some photographers use Headings 6 as a substitute for captions when placing captions between sets of photographs.
  • Icons. To see a full set of editing tools when typing your post, click on the KITCHEN SINK icon.
  • Adding Video. You can easily add video to your blog posts using YouTube. First, you need to put your video on YouTube. Then copy and paste the YouTube video’s URL into the post with one small change: the prefix should read as httpv://… (add a v for video) or httpvhd://… (add vdh for high definition video.

What to publish? We love it when BOWP members share their recent weddings on the blog and would also like to encourage other types of articles to further increase the value of the website for its visitors. One of the best ways to do this is by publishing educational articles.  As an example, you might want to publish an article that talks about what a couple might want to wear for their engagement sessions and why.

Styling, Formatting, and Organization. With many members logging in separately and posting on the blog, it is an ongoing challenge to ensure consistency in style. We ask that you follow these guidelines when submitting your posts. We also review all posts prior to publication, and may adjust your post if it does not meet the following guidelines.

  • Please limit your photographs to 960px in width.  The reason for this is because the theme that is used on the website is only 960px wide.  So by uploading larger photographs, they will not be viewed bigger and only be slowing down the loading speed of the website.
  • Please also limit your articles to a max of 50 photographs in the article.
  • Please take advantage of the ProPhoto Lightbox Gallery style, instead of the blog style. This has some advantages over the other gallery styles, like site loading speed.  Here is a quick video showing how.
  • Because we are using the Lightbox gallery style, there will be one large photograph at the top and rows of thumbnails below. Each row will contain 9 photographs.  In order to have each row filled, please upload 10, 19, 28 or 37 photographs.
  • If possible, please provide some text to give readers some context for the photographs. For example, talk about the wedding day, where it was or mention one part of the day that stands out for you.
  • When choosing a category for your article, please choose no more than 4 categories.  Our recommendation is to pick a type and location. For example:
    • Weddings go under the "All Weddings" category
    • Engagement sessions go under the "All E-Sessions" category
    • Boston, Australia or Toronto are examples of locations
  • Tags should not be used in any articles.

Here is an  example of an article using the recommended format. Here you will see the Lightbox gallery style in use, text content before the gallery, and specific categories selected.


BOWP generally ranks well in search engines. A few SEO-friendly adjustments can help ensure your post ranks on search engines for relevant terms, bringing even more traffic and visitors to see your work. Here are a few tips:

  • Please use your important keyword(s) towards the beginning of the article title.
  • Please include your important keyword(s) towards the beginning of the text content that you include before your gallery.
  • Choose only appropriate categories related to the article so locations are optimized at its best.
  • For users with an advanced understanding of SEO, please note that we have the Meta Title and Meta Description fields for all articles to automatically be created based off the article’s title and the first two sentences of the text content.


Every time your articles are published, please click the share buttons that are floating to the left, and below the article’s content. Sharing on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and Pinterest will increase the chances of your article being viewed and also help with search engine optimization.

Linking back to your article, profile and location pages are more ways to increase the exposure of the site. Backlinks are part of the SEO process, and there are many ways you can take advantage of this.

When you publish an article for Wedding XYZ on your website, in the text content you can link to your BOWP article on the same Wedding XYZ.

On your website where you share associations you are a member of, you can include text along the lines of: Member of Boston Wedding Photographers at Best of Wedding Photography.

Wherever you place the BOWP logo on your website, you can link to your profile page instead of the main BOWP website.

That brings us to the next tip.  We have many BOWP badges available for you to use on your website, so please take advantage them as they serve as a powerful marketing tool for your customers. You can download them or link to them here.

Their story telling photography love brides and groom, and you can get back to it any time with the same feeling of love for it.

They live and breathe photography and their love for work and extraordinary talent keep then traveling around Europe.

“Wrapped up in a passion for perfect pictures, they capture your dreams as he unfold so all you have to do is dress the part and relax while they works his magic.”

Some words from our friends – brides and groom.

“Thank you for photographing our special day, we enjoyed every single minute of it and as your amazing photos tell, we had fun being photographed too”

We have been very lucky to come across friendly, professional and very much customer oriented photographer. The cooperation was just perfect and Jan’s approach was exactly what we needed in order to have the wedding day that we always dreamed of. After seeing the pictures and all the emotions captured in the most precise moments, we have to say that it was just the “cherry on top of the cake”.

We are very pleased to have you as a wedding photographer. Our vision were natural-looking, candid images, capturing the emotions of our wedding day. Jan Plachy and Marianna not only met, but many times even exceeded our expectations. Shooting took place in a relaxed atmosphere, Jan and Marianna have a great professional but yet very human approach. Although both are quite reluctant to take pictures, initial nervousness soon faded. The result? Impressive photo with which we are extremely satisfied. Thank you!

Jan and Marianna, you have truly delighted the bride & groom. Weddings are a happy occasion and you want it to remain that way each time you re-live your day through the photos. Photographing people at their best is a tricky business and you managed it superbly: whether posing the bride & groom for formals or candid shots at the reception, everyone looks happy, natural and as you remember it. And you did this despite the distraction of the fairytale wedding location that might have proved too much of a temptation for some photographers. This sums up the reason we chose you, and an excellent decision it turned out to be. We also love the “video book”: it’s a 4-minute on-screen version of the wedding book you would proudly display on your coffee table if it were in printed form. Thanks for being easy to work with, your hard work on and after the day, but mostly for the fabulous digital memories.”

"I’ve always believed that photos are extension of what photographers see with their heart not only with their eyes. Since I was a child I have been intrigued by the world of photography, one of the most versatile form of art. Over the years I focused on the world of weddings and from 2006 I finally started to express my ideas and creativity through reportage photography, or known as photojournalism. Exchanges, workshops, and collaborations with other colleagues in recent years, led me to the conclusion that much heart, and an almost invisible presence of the photographer during the event, creates best results for a real wedding reportage. A beautiful picture is something so subjective. It doesn’t have to be technically perfect to be beautiful, yet it needs to be able to re-evoke unique moments and feelings. In one single image, there is so much to say and, even more, transmit to those who look at it, again and again in time. I am a very sensitive person, one of those lucky who get excited while waiting of the bride, or enchanted in front of a kiss at the sunset. And I like to get involved emotionally in front the love stories of my couples, this is the secret of the success of my “Photo Wedding Stories”.

Clients who enquire about their wedding photography usually have a few things in common: they are looking for natural images without too much fuss while searching for an alternative to the same old wedding photography.

So I have devised an approach which blends stylish documentary with stunning artistic imagery.

The documentary images reflect an emotional and atmospheric visualization of what actually happened on your wedding day. The artistic shots compliment these by creating high impact photos that have a wow factor and are captured in a timely manner. No posing required! The days of three hour post wedding shoots are over.

My photography has been recognised internationally, I am a full time member of the prestigious Wedding Photo Journalist’s Association, The Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalist’s, The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers and now The Best of Wedding Photography. All of my packages include a slick online presentation of your story and a copy of the wedding proofs.

My aim is always to exceed people’s expectations; I regularly receive comments complimenting my relaxed approach and the popular remark: “we didn’t even know you were there!” Waterford wedding photographer

My name is Rosario Borzacchiello and I am a wedding reporter/photographer from Italy with over 20 years of experience. I am currently based in Naples and just a few minutes from Amalfitan Coast. So, differently from other colleagues that should afford several km to get there, I already live here and this gave me the opportunity to work for many international couples. Anywhere, I love travelling, meeting people and freezing authentic stories of love and unrepeatable moments in human existence. I'm here to make your day unique just as you look through my lenses: I'm here to find the best in every single woman and man while living the most important hours of their lives. No matter if you are enjoying a wedding or an engagement or family session or bachelorette party, I will be there for the pleasure to write a light fairy tale.


I like to be renowed as a discreet reporter more than a portraiture photographer. I sanctioned wedding photo journalism in my Country in the late 1990s and I guess to be one of the purest photographer: real life is much better than a phony scene. I love true reportage

In 2001, I bought my first digital camera and started to experiment with this new tool until I bought my first DSLR in 2005. I started shooting a collection of pictures related to hidden places of Mauritius in order to be different to the Sea, Sun and Beach photos that all other photographers were doing. Eventually, a friend of mine asked me if I could cover his Wedding. It was the beginning of a new passion in photography. I spent a lot of time looking at what other Wedding photographers were doing abroad and saw stunning images which ignited in me a dedication for epic and out of the ordinary Wedding photos. In 2011 I founded Fotoshoot Productions and the business hasn’t stopped growing since then.

In 2015 and 2016 I was awarded best Wedding photographer by Wedisson and in July 2017, I was ranked by the site as being among the 10 best Wedding Photographer in the World. In August 2017, I won the Gold Award of Best Wedding photographer from the Oneeyeland World’s Top Ten Wedding photographers photo contest. You can only be passionate in what you do in order to be among the best. I consider each Wedding to be a story and the images are the words used to tell this story. I always ask couples to interact and forget me since I’m only there to capture what happens between them. I believe that the best pictures are those which captures moments not poses.

As a little girl, I was surrounded by artists in my family, so it was a natural step for me to find a love of photography very early. I tried my hand at a course as a Sophomore in High School and immediately found myself winning state-wide competitions, which only drove me to love photography even more. I knew I wanted to make photography my full-time gig even then, but didn't know how until I became a stay-at-home mom with my daughter. I gave myself a 1 year deadline to make it happen, so I dove in head first. In February of 2006 I rented a booth at a bridal festival with photos of my daughter and my dog as my portfolio. I asked EVERY person that walked by my booth to take a chance on me because I knew it was my destiny... I booked 14 weddings from that festival and never looked back!

I'm proud to say that after years of honing my skills with lots of practice and continuing education, I know how to work well under pressure and handle any lighting or photo challenges that are thrown at me in a timely, laid-back manner. I have also become a master of working under high-stress conditions, while still being emotionally available, connected, and inspired by my clients. Because of this, couples who work with me get to remember their most sincere wedding moments with touching photographs.

While I'm honored to have worked with a wide variety of couples, I typically find my clients are social, close with their family and friends, active, in-demand city dwellers, that value quality over quantity when it comes to living the life they love. If you consider yourself to be any of these things, I would love to work with you on your big day!
