Yulya and Ivan. Wedding for two. Crimea
(translate from service Google.translate)
Greetings, friends! 🙂
Tell me, do you have in friends familiar military pilots? And do you know who coordinates their flights from the earth by radio communication?
Which of the boys dreamed of being at the helm of a combat aircraft at least once? I think everyone! 🙂
Meet Ivan and Julia!
Their profession is to guard the air borders of the country. He – the hero of boyish dreams, this is his fighter SU-27 inhabitants of Sevastopol see every week in the sky over the city. She – provides radio land communication with his combat vehicle. Side by side, on the ground and in the sky! And they have a wedding, at which their numerous relatives and comrades-in-arms gathered.
The wedding walk of the newlyweds took place in the format “Wedding for two“, tk. all guests on the walk were busy preparing for an evening interactive in the restaurant. They, along with the wedding host, filmed mini-productions – riddles – puzzles. Then they were shown at a banquet for other guests. And this is wonderful, because for a short period of time we were able to shoot a lot of beautiful frames.
Today I will allow myself a little distraction and speculate on the now fashionable theme: Criteria for choosing a photographer for a wedding. This is my blog 🙂
On this subject, as a carbon copy, tons of texts are written, but some important aspects of the choice are intentionally hushed up by most photographers. I will try to fill this gap.
As you could see, until today, I have not done anything like this in my articles, I tried to avoid such topics by side. But everything changes. I can not keep silent anymore 🙂
After the photo schools / masterclasses / workshops, etc., new photographers come out in tens and hundreds every day. They write beautiful words in their texts, attach a few beautiful photographs obtained under ideal conditions of masterclasses, set a price of several thousand rubles. less than the average, and now – they receive cherished orders. True, the real wedding is very different from the masterclass or workshop. Almost never it passes in ideal conditions for shooting, and the rhythm of the day is so unexpected that you can completely forget to make the necessary settings to the camera before shooting a certain story. As a result, the result is unpredictable. Many times I have been approached by brides, asking them to remake their wedding photos made by such workers. But in most cases the result can not be fixed for many reasons. And all because of the savings of several thousand rubles. Is it worth it? I think no. Tip # 1: I recommend paying attention to the number of people shot in the photographer’s portfolio. Simply put – the person, the environment and the shooting conditions should be different. The more of them, the better.
Also, I would like to draw your attention, dear readers, to the quality of photos, which are now often undeservedly taken to the distant future. More and more photographers are reducing the technical quality of their work (shooting and processing) in view of the fact that they are forced to reduce prices in the face of the emerging hypercompetition in this market of services. To ensure some competitiveness and a significant reduction in the timing of the issuance of ready-made photographs, most photographers use in their work only a packet-based automatic correction. All this and much more, which goes beyond the scope of this article, as a rule leads to a significant deterioration in the technical quality of photographs, which is often explained by the author’s own “vision of the world” 🙂 Tip # 2: Choose a photographer on the principle of “like – do not like it work “rather than” fast, inexpensive “. Carefully study his portfolio, and if you can imagine yourself in his photographs, order.
To achieve the highest quality result, I use only professional photographic equipment and premium class optics in my work, and each photo is carefully hand-processed. My opinion: that would not say that the technique is not important for the creation of “masterpieces”, I believe that the creative and technical component of photography should be inseparable 🙂 For example, in “combat” conditions of the wedding there are such situations: weak or not correct lighting, the need for a stronger blur of the background, greater distance or proximity to the subject, the need for quick focus and speed of shooting, the need to get a clearer picture without motion blur. Often all these conditions occur simultaneously, and then a good shot can be obtained only with the availability of professional equipment. Tip # 3: The technique of the photographer is important.
In this article I decided to include more photos than usual. Yes, many will be similar to each other. But by this I decided to demonstrate that ALL of my photos go through exceptionally high-quality processing, unlike most photographers who give out no more than a dozen interesting shots from the shooting, because The rest of the material is batch-packed, or the remaining photos do not have artistic value. And everywhere now everyone advises – “Pay attention to the full series from one shooting.” I consider it necessary to supplement this council. Tip # 4: pay attention also to the number of photos in the demonstration series.
Trends for shooting and processing are changing rapidly, but the classics will always be in price. Remember, some 7-8 years ago it was fashionable to put brides on your palm, etc.? Then came and went fashion for a different tint (yellow / brown, etc.). Now, too, there are certain fashion trends, which, most likely, will also pass. Tip # 5: Do not pursue fashion trends. They are temporary. What now seems cool, is called stylish and fashionable, in 7-8 years, it may look ridiculous.
In today’s article – 120 photos. How often have you seen wedding series on photographers’ websites only with a walk (!) With so many photos? In total, 250 photographs were processed from this shooting. I am sure that Julia and Ivan will not be ashamed to show them to friends and relatives. each photo has its own specific artistic value 🙂

Places to photograph: Cape Fiolent, Vorontsov Palace park (Southern coast of Crimea, Alupka).

Cape Fiolent – beautiful at any time of year, in any weather!
The sea, mountains, love – three elements, which you can watch forever!
On Fiolent you can make dozens of magnificent and diverse photos! That we all, wedding photographers of Crimea and Sevastopol, did without your beloved Fiolent? Would you shoot at photo studios? 🙂
About an hour of moving – and we continue to take pictures in the park of the Vorontsov Palace, Alupka.
Do not forget about the footage with the parents
My favorite pre-production photos! So cool when you can make such shots on a wedding day!
But most of the wedding walks are planned in such a way that it is impossible to remove such shots, because we must hurry to the banquet. I recommend my couples not to neglect this magical time of the day. The banquet can be shifted in time and no one will notice, and the fabulous shots from the wedding will remain with you for life! 🙂
I often travel and can tell you the best places for a photo shoot in the Crimea. Together we plan the whole day and the route of the walk, as well as we will pick up specialists who will make your day even more vivid and rich (stylist – make-up artist – hairdresser, florist, presenter of the marriage registration ceremony, transport, etc.).
50..100 processed photos from a romantic photo shoot or a wedding for two – is it a lot or a little? This article presents 120 photos. It would seem that the figures are not large, but for such a survey this is the optimal number of photos that a person can view at a time without losing interest and interest. In any case, when ordering a photo, it is possible to increase the number of photos processed.

All good, happiness and love! 🙂
