Meet a Wedding Photographer in Paris, France: Dagmara Bojenko Photographe (2)

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Dagmara  of Dagmara Bojenko Photographe, based in Paris, France! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am a Polish Canadian Photographer based in Paris, France, since 2012. Growing up in a multicultural environment allowed me to quickly learn and adapt to new surroundings, as well as be able to read people’s expressions before even understanding their language. To this day, connecting to people in that way drives me in my work and knowing that I can lay their emotions onto a photo is the ultimate gift. I love working with people from different backgrounds and discovering their wedding traditions as well as their unique perspectives on life and love. I approach every photoshoot with a desire to create a connection between myself and my subject, which goes beyond the image itself. Photography is an experience, not just a final product. I realize how intimate it is to point your camera at someone and ask them to be themselves, so I strive to leave something of myself in my interaction with my subjects. I compare my photography to a couple’s dance, where both parties need to open up, trust and share of themselves in order to create beauty.

Today’s wedding photographer interview is with Nicole of Nicole Bates Photography, based in Saint Joseph, Michigan. Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am a less than a month away from twenty five and from a small town in Southwest Michigan.  I love the beach, breakfast, and my german shepard. When I am not taking portraits, I am teaching yoga to my lovely little community in Saint Joseph, Michigan. Photography has been an interest of mine for as long as I can remember, and that interest has really began to feel like a career for me. Over the last few years, the people in front of my camera became clients and not just models. My ideas now become reality through my camera lens and within that my photographs show my true style and artistic vision. I truly feel like my company is becoming something more and that I have so very much room to grow.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Playa del Carmen, Mexico: Melissa Mercado Photography (3)

Today’s photographer interview is with Melissa of Melissa Mercado Photography, based in the stunning Mayan Riviera! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company:

After a little more than 7 years I graduated college never believing that I’d make a living out of taking pictures. I always figured I’d be great at helping others realize their dreams and connecting with their clients would be awesome for me. Having supported myself through school in various customer service jobs, I loved people and my hobby of capturing my friends fulfilled my desires to shoot.  But the life happened and I went to a party and made one connection, then I went to a wedding and made another, and through a series of seemingly random events I realized I was pretty good about giving the universe directions and giving it the space to figure out the how.  After nearly 4 years of running a wildly successful destination wedding studio I earnestly missed shooting and got the itch to just go. So nearly 4 years ago I jumped feet first into a seemingly empty swimming pool and found just enough water to not drown. I’ve worked hard, played harder and laughed so many brides away from the brink of tears that I couldn’t imagine not having made a living freezing memories. My dog is my balance, my work is my passion and I live in paradise. Life’s alright.

Meet a Wedding Photographer in Los Angeles, CA: Victoria Johansson Photography (8)

Today’s photographer interview is with Victoria of Victoria Johansson Photography, based in Southern California

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Oh where to start! Hmmm… my name is Victoria, and I am a wife, in love with our two beautiful pups, and almost always on the road to somewhere. Photography has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, and the main reason for that, is that I love telling stories. An image can convey so many things, and as I often struggle to put words to emotions, I let my images do the talking. My philosophy is based on the principle of being authentic, timeless and emotive, and I try to make sure that every image I create conveys those qualities.
