It’s not everyday we get to shoot things that are a little out of the ordinary or work with a bride that is willing to take some risks when it comes to colours and patterns. So when WEDDING CONCEPTS sent over the moodboard of this styled shoot, we were excited to be a part of this vibrant, sophisticated and super modern shoot. I am a pastels kinda girl but I love how edgy this shoot came out.
Various wedding trends come and go but colour palettes never really seem to change or evolve. The WEDDING CONCEPTS creative team wanted to present a new exciting range of colours for spring and summer weddings. An alternative modern, on-trend palette that was not typical of the wedding industry. I think they succeeded
Colour never goes out of style! Themes and concepts do, so make your wedding a timeless celebration of style and embrace colour! We are excited to see what this new season of weddings will bring and how brides will incorporate all that is on trend. We will be there to capture it in the most beautiful way we know how
With our summer season having just started this past week, with our first shoot wrapped up in the Garden Route, we are excited to bring you some amazing shoots. With a new season before us, and wheels of change in motion once again at the Tyme studio, we hope you will visit our blog more often to keep up with our latest growth spurt
For the planning bride-to-be check out the latest planning tools brought to you by some of the worlds leading blogs like The Pretty Blog’s new DIRECTORY and Style Me Pretty’s : THE VAULT to help you plan and create your timeless celebration embracing the latest trends.
Happy planning, we’ll see you coming down the aisle!
After 8 years in the industry we finally hosted our first wedding photography workshop!
We’ve been hosting TYMEOUT workshops for beginners for some time now.
We’ve presented at several big photography expos but for some reason the idea of teaching our peers for two days was way more scary.
We’ve always felt that until we had ‘earned our stripes’, we would refrain from telling others how to earn theirs.
Now over 400 Weddings later, international destination weddings under our belt, hundreds of late nights and many beads of sweat later we decided to share what we’ve learnt along the way over the past 10 years at this 2 day WEDDING WORKSHOP.
Our industry is so full of talented people! There’s so much information on photography out there and the accessibility to helpful tools make it much easier for photographers to reach professional status relatively quickly. Many creatives still struggle however with running a sustainable business doing what they love. This workshop was aimed to help with this.
‘The Art of Business’
We spoke about the value of your website, social media, wedding expos and working with other service providers. We then had a Skype interview with Kate from WEDDING CONCEPTS to talk about how to work with wedding co-ordinators and commissions.
This workshop wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing sponsors we were so grateful to work with.
We wanted to give the students the opportunity to shoot beautiful things that they won’t always get to shoot at a real wedding and to work with professional models to help them learn the importance of body language and posing. We chose to host the workshop in our very own natural light studio and then headed out to MORRELLS for our location shoot where we could take advantage of the soft afternoon light.
You may not know this but when we started shooting we learnt to shoot full manual mode on film, we even had a little darkroom setup at home. YES it was a good place to make out when we were dating;-) but this is where our love for photography and each other really made deep roots in our hearts.
We’ve realized along the way that staying inspired throughout a big season is always a challenge.
Shooting film can be a great way to keep your passion going. Shoot for yourself, shoot because you love this art form, shoot because its your culture!
We invited our crazy friends, Seth and Tenielle from FEATHER AND STONE to talk to the students a bit about why they shoot film and what film can do for you as a shooter.
Thank you to everyone for making this workshop such a success. We had the best time with you in our space, learning and growing together.
We are looking forward to watching your businesses reach new heights over the next few months and years.
Now we are super excited to host the next one;-)
These two New Yorkers chose the beautiful island of Santorini for their: ‘I do’s’. And yes we were the lucky bums to capture their story! We love intimate destination weddings, I would go as far as to say they are our favorite! Only a handful of your closest people for a weekend of laughs, love, food and good wine!
And in one of the most beautiful places in the world, what more can you ask for? For a photographer it really is a dream destination, with gorgeous blue skies, amazing views and soft clean light, we were like a kid in a candy store, not wanting to miss out on anything! We way overshot this wedding, but hey, why wouldn’t we?
Was so nice to work with Athens based WHITE RIBBON BOUTIQUE EVENTS again who did the planning, decor and florals for this wedding.
Vana, you have a beautiful way of working with your couples and all the suppliers involved in a wedding! Lets do it again sometime;-)
It was a windy day on the island which made working with the veil a challenge, but as soon as we surrendered and stopped trying to make it do what we wanted it to do and just captured the day truthfully, I think we got some of my favorite shots to date.
I absolutely LOVE the shot of Olga’s friend running to catch the veil, such a cool moment!
Olga and Matt decided to do their ‘first look’ before their ceremony with the signature Santorini views in the background. What a stunning setting for this sweet little moment, just before Olga took a walk to the church with her mom and dad by her side. Just love little details like this at a wedding, gives us some extra real moments to capture.
As is Greek tradition, Olga and Matt were accompanied by their family, friends, two local musicians and a donkey to walk back through the streets of Imerovigli to their reception venue to get the celebrations going. This should become a wedding tradition in general, walking back from the church with family, friends and a cute animal in tow to some music, why not?
