Christophe Flers Christophe Flers, Paris, France

I started out 10 years ago with concert photography. At the time, I would never have imagined that one day, I would specialize in wedding photography. For me, wedding photography was just a couple standing awkwardly in a park with flowers, like all those kitschy pictures I saw on photographer’s windows. Then one day, my cousin asked me to shoot her wedding! My answer was no, I didn’t know to photograph a bride and groom in a park, or a dress, and I had no idea how to do a group shot. I told them that maybe a real wedding photographer would be a better choice. My cousin gave me an answer, the answer that changed my life: “I don’t want you to do wedding photography, I want your pictures, your style, for my wedding.” So I said “OK, it’s a deal!” I had never attended a wedding before, never seen the feelings, or emotion of such a special day. After that day, I knew I wanted to be a wedding photographer :) So that’s what I’m doing now.

Sergio Photographer Sergio – Sergio Photographer, Tucson, Arizona

Based in Tucson, AZ, Sergio photographs weddings in his state, all over the United States and Mexico. At every wedding his goals are to capture the true essence of the wedding day and create stunning portraiture using dramatic lighting. He has been invited to participate in conferences in the USA and Europe. Sergio graduated as an electrical engineer and worked as such for many years until he decided to become a wedding photographer after attending his brother’s 2003 wedding; where he was stunned to see how much fun wedding photography could be. His images have received multiple awards from many prestigious organizations; he also earned a first place in 2008’s PDN Top Knot’s photo competition.

JoAnne Dunn Photographers JoAnne Dunn – JoAnne Dunn Photographers, Ravello, Italy

Joanne is an internationally recognized photographer who has worked and exhibited in the United Kingdom, Italy and South Africa. She has become one of Italy’s most popular wedding photographers because of her truly unique approach: It’s all about you. Joanne lives and breathes for the perfect photo, and treats each and every wedding with unparalleled effort and enthusiasm. She knows that a deep connection with the wedding couple is critical, and will go to extraordinary lengths to get to know her clients in order to deliver exactly what they were hoping for – and a little more. Classically trained with a fine art background, Joanne does not limit herself to any style, but adapts to shoot photos that correspond to her clients’ wishes. For five years Joanne traveled the globe to shoot weddings for international clients. But after falling pregnant she settled in her favourite destination: Ravello in on the Amalfi Coast. For the past two years she has tried to keep her weddings as local as possible to stay close to her son. But being a traveler at heart she may be tempted to travel in quieter months. She is a little mad, but it’s a good, fun madness, which makes even the most stressed out ‘bridezilla’ giggle. A hopeless romantic, she still cries at every wedding.
