The photographer is one of the people you will spend most time with throughout your wedding. This book is not a technical “how to” on taking wedding photos. Instead, it contains tips and advice we have learned over the years that will make your day run smooth, stress free, enjoyable and unforgettable.
In turn, this will help us, as photographers, to capture the emotions, romance, and love in a very raw and most organic way possible.
We are so thankful we hired these two for our wedding, every reason why is in this book.

I wish we had this book before we got married. We had some pretty big ``mishaps`` with our wedding. With this book, we could have avoided some of them.

The best advice for new brides - TOP TEN list.
For almost a decade I worked in the film and television industry; doing everything from lighting, camera, producing and even marketing. Then one day a still camera fell into my hands. Soon I realized that photography was my passion. My photography career came to light.
I love the natural feel of photography, trying to capture everything in frame with very little manipulation afterwards. Every photo should tell a story and capture a special moment in time. I prepare ahead of time, set the stage if possible, anticipate and wait for these moments to play out naturally.
One of the greatest awards in this profession is to be able to capture life’s precious moments when people are unaware that a camera is even on them; these photographs in turn are beautiful, romantic, raw, and down to earth.
Hello, my name is Bogdan, I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based in the Bay Area, California and I would like to thank you for visiting our site. My work is not about Photoshop manipulation. My images are not defined by some fading trend. I bring an expert’s understanding of lighting and composition to my work, and one of my qualities is putting my subjects at ease in front of the camera.
I like to keep my photography as close to reality as possible. My goal is to capture the essence of who you are by capturing your day naturally, without trying to attempt to pose you into someone who I think you should be. As a wedding photographer today, I do my best to manipulate the scene as little as possible. I may help the light along in a given situation, but I still prefer to allow things to occur organically. I think brides prefer it that way as well. The energy I give for each and every event is spent on anticipating, and reacting to real moments in time. I’d rather wait for the moment, than to make the moment.
My clients are connected by a love of great photography and an understanding of its importance in their lives.
The words that best describe my images are light, texture, dimension, mood, composition, anticipation, passion, emotion, energy and romance.
