7 Reasons why the After Wedding Photo Session is a great idea

The first thing that a bride and groom are saying when they are asked about their wedding day is "It went by so fast!" or "Really beautiful and so many things were happening!", "It really does fly by!"

And this is so true! In the end it's only one day or in many cases just a half of a day and there are so many things that you don't want to miss. It's the most beautiful day of your life. You spent so many hours in planing it and you thought about every little detail so you can really make it a magical celebration to share with your family and your most dear friends. And you should enjoy every single moment of it like you always dreamed that you will! And in the same time you are thinking that you'll love to have those amazing wedding portraits that you  saved on your Pinterest Board. 

The best thing is that you can have them both? Enjoy your wedding day and have an amazing time with your friends and family and also have the amazing wedding portraits that other future bride will save them on her Pinterest Wedding Inspiration Board. 

The "magic solution" is called After Wedding Photo Session. Simple like that!

Still not convinced? Just read the next reasons and I bet you will until you finished to read them.

1. Better wedding experience for you and your guests. One of the biggest regrets from couples is not spending more time with their friends and family.

2. No stress.  Now that the wedding day is over, you can take that walk on the beach, enjoy the fresh salty air and soak in the sunset view with your husband and let your photographer create those memorable pictures. It's quite nice not to worry about the time and that you have to hurry back to the reception venue. More relaxed = much better photos!

3. You get to wear that amazing wedding dress again.  You dreamed about it, spent countless hours to find it, and when you finally did, you spent a little fortune to have it. And now that it's finally yours you have to wear it just once? Well, now you have a reason to wear it again! And this time you can even try a completely new hair style.

4. Golden Hour is not named like that for nothing. Even if you already planed with your event coordinator or your photographer to reserve 30 minutes for some sunset portraits, on the wedding day, usually, the golden hour happens in the same time with the toasts or with the first dance. Plan yourself an after wedding photo session and you'll have the liberty to choose the sunrise or the sunset, but not the mid day. :) I don't know any photographer that will tell you that the mid day is the best part of the day to schedule an outdoor portrait session.

5. Location choices are unlimited now.  Forest? Beach? High cliffs? You can choose to go anywhere for your wedding photos. You don't have only the option of just someplace close to your wedding venue. You can even plan it for your honeymoon if you are traveling to a spectacular location.  Just pack your wedding dress. You can be more relaxed with your husband's suit. He can wear something more casual for a change of look.

6. Go creative. You have the luxury to go nuts with the creative planing for this photo session. Maybe you fancy something very simple and laid back or maybe you want to create something really spectacular, a fashion like photo shooting with lots of styling and props. You can do this now!

7. Celebrate your new life as wife & husband.  Yeah, that's right! This is an awesome way to spend your new life together. Having a great time on some beautiful location and create memories for a lifetime. You already had documented the first kiss and the first dance. Why not the first day as a married couple?

Chiara & Francesco | A celebration of love | Ibiza

Chiara and Francesco visited Ibiza for the first time. And the occasion was one of the kind: a surprise trip for Francesco's 30th birthday. Chiara arranged every little detail and managed to organize a beautiful love celebration for her husband. Even a surprise photo session and a sunset gazing. Daniela, from Ibiza Exclu, was Chiara's accomplice for this special day. She was the one that contacted me to hire my services and also she perfectly organized a surprise table at S'Illa Des Bos decorated with balloons, a beautiful floral centerpiece, an amazing birthday cake decorated with gold and fresh flowers and a chilled bottle of cava.  Everything was perfect! We started our session at Time and Space Monument, one of the most magical hidden gemstones of Ibiza, we continued at the restaurant for a nice break time and then the sunset in Cala Comte was the perfect backdrop for our photos to end up an epic birthday surprise.

Thank you Chiara and Francesco for having me as a part of your special day! Your love for each other is so fresh and inspiring! The photos will tell you this story even better then my clumsy words 

Adela & Alex after wedding photo session | Ibiza | Experimental Beach

Probably you already know that I love my job, that I love to photograph weddings, and to be the one that is going to bring the time back for the new married couple, every now and then when they will look at their beautiful wedding day photos. I couldn't say that I love more the after wedding photo sessions, but I am really honest now to say that this sessions, for me as a photographer that lives in Ibiza, are a pure joy! I love the emotion of the wedding moments as they are unfolding in front of my camera for an entire day, but in the same time, I am not a great fan of all that rush and stress that is coming in the same box. I love to create beautiful portraits for the bide and groom, but so often the tight schedule of a busy wedding day it allows us to have a very limited and short time for that. And the after the wedding photo session are offering exactly what I love: time to create amazing portraits, to take the bride and groom to beautiful beaches and great sightseeing locations, a relaxed new wife (now) and a happy new husband. The beauty of these photo session is that they don't have an expiration time! You can do it the next day after the wedding or after 2-3 days...or even after a month or a half a year. All you need is LOVE! Like Adela and Alex, here, that they had their wedding in the summer of 2017, and we create this beautiful after the wedding photo session in October last year.

Thank you, guys for these beautiful moments! I loved being your photographer!

Ibiza Mamas Get Together June Edition | Ibiza Family Photographer

 

What a great fun we had at the last Ibiza Mamas gathering last month!!! The kids had a lot of fun with water balloons, they helped us making a hand painted photo backdrop, they played some drama role games and they even cleaned up the park at the end (it's never too early to teach them to love and to take good care about the Mother Nature). And we took tons of beautiful pictures, obviously! Can't wait for the next gathering once the school is starting! Enjoy the summer and stay cool, dear mamas!

Ibiza Food Tour | Ibiza Vacation Photographer

 

If you are a food lover and it happens to be in Ibiza this days you must take the Ibiza Food Tours. I did it a couple of weeks ago and it was a visual and tasteful delight! Toby, the guy behind this idea, it was a great guide! He unveiled to us some of the most hidden places in Ibiza Town. We discovered pieces of history, we walked around the city, and indulge ourselves with some of the most delicious treats. The photos that I took are speaking by themselves! This is what I call a good vacation activity to taste and to photograph!
