Winter Zagreb Wedding in Snowy Wonderland

Working as a photographer in Mediterranean area, snow on a wedding is a real rarity, so you can only imagine the excitement we felt when we saw white snowflakes slowly descending upon the town on the morning of the wedding.

Our couple lives on a hill, and the amount of snow they got was making them borderline inaccessible by car. Oh, the excitement!

As we wrapped up their preparations, we went on a short session around the frozen forest and later through the famous Zagreb Advent in the Upper town. We couldn’t pass up the bokehlicious Christmas lights!

The sugar at the end was the antique bowling alley turned reception venue with stunning decorations, flowers and glowing warm lights all around. It was impossible to pick what to shoot first as the couple arrived for the ceremony and dinner reception.

The atmosphere was terrific with two acoustic bands taking turns playing, and winter delicacies abound.

Split Croatia Wedding

For your engagement, wedding or honeymoon shooting you can choose one million of places around the world, but hardly you will find any as beautiful and unique as Split in Croatia. Many of couples around the world recognized it and engaged us to take their photographs exactly under the shadows of the historical palace or under the sun in Split.

Split Croatia Wedding Shooting

Unusual engagement session in Hvar, Croatia

Ana&Matija are adventurous souls. Not only they didn’t want the “usual” engagement session, but were so relaxed and spontaneous on the shooting that my job was simply to put myself on the right spot at the right time. Images were created in Sveta Nedilja, a small place in Hvar, Croatia are to be used in their wedding invitation.

Feel free to find more of my images at my website.


Castles, Carriages and Fairy-tale Wedding Charm

Have you ever dreamt of a true fairy-tale wedding? The idyllic romance of Baroque castles, horse-drawn carriages and a touch of magical scenery? Well, radiant newly weds Martina and Matej were lucky enough to experience their big day within the warmth of a magical fairy-tale setting tucked away in renaissance-like beauty of northern Croatia.

Our excited couple simply wanted to grasp a timeless setting for their album. Somewhere which blends together a touch of history and classicism. A place which adds a sense of character and ambiance. The charm of the Trakoscan castle and the baroque town of Varaždin, known as the ‘Little Vienna’, certainly ticked all the boxes.

As soon as the day began and the reality of the day started to absorb – Martina and Matej literally became a prince and princess for the day! The dreamy hilly landscape becoming the backdrop for many of our shots gave us all original and charming results.

We simply loved the natural wooden bridges and the cream-stoned castle walls which really added a noble feel to the images. Matina and Matej rode away in a magical horse-drawn carriage just as if they were royalty celebrities – which is certainly how they felt!

Dubrovnik Wedding Photographer

What could possibly be more delightful than celebrating true love surrounded by the historic city walls of Dubrovnik?! Moreover, part of this unique structure could be closed exclusively for your wedding ceremony, to make the most of your special moments, overlooking the city and amazingly blue waters of the Adriatic sea. So, imagine turbulent times when the walls defended the city from countless assaults and with a sip of your cocktail enjoy in being a part of the history itself, creating your wedding memories at the same time.

Apart of city walls, there are also numerous narrow streets of this magnificent town which tell their unique stories just like every couple tell their own…in Dubrovnik, not even bad weather can spoil your romance! Enjoy these photos where we made this couple’s fairytale become their everlasting true story…
