Enchanted Wedding Photography
“One's not half of two; two are halves of one.” - E.E. Cummings
Hi! My name is Sofia and I'm the gal behind Enchanted Wedding Photography, my growing baby of four years (I am sometimes sleep deprived and do enjoy a coffee). I was born in Russia, but am proud to call Australia home for the last 18 years. This might explain a few things about me, like my love for cool winter days, wrapped up in a blanket, watching the wind send all the trees into a spin, cuddling my kitty, eating cheese (bloody love cheese) and drinking red wine (or a hot cup of peppermint tea). Even just the thought of that makes me all warm and fuzzy.
The path that led me here has been windy, stopping along the way to gather some knowledge in Graphic Design and Primary School Education. I was always known to be "that" friend who always brought her camera (mostly the cheap Olympus kind) everywhere, so I could document all the moments and get every selfie we were so inclined to take (I also will happily have a selfie with you). Wedding photography was an accidental path to stumble upon, but a very happy accident at that.
I love LOVE. Love is awesome. It is raw and emotional and forever unique. On the most special day of your lives I aim to be a fly on the wall. Like I am not even there. But trust me, I am. I am there for every tear, smile, touch, hug, high five or cheeky bum grab (I encourage these). To me, your wedding day is a big deal. It is a privilege and an honor to have rad couples choose me to document one of the biggest milestones of their lives. My photojournalistic approach aspires to leave you filled with emotions (belly laughs or tears of joy are my personal faves), the 'in-between' moments of that gaze filled with love, a soft touch for support, excited fist pump or that meaningful hug, I get it all. Yes the day is definitely about YOU, but I want to also fill your collection gallery with everybody who was there to support both of you in your new adventure, the most exciting chapter in your life to date.
I get arty, I try new things, I keep it fun and simple. No awkward poses, and definitely no staged moments. In saying that, I am happy to guide you along the way, but if you prefer to ignore my presence and simply immerse yourselves into your own bubble of kisses and cuddles (please do), I am down for this all the way, always!
If you like to be a little different and step outside the 'norm' of traditions, if you love to have fun and relax, if you dig the fact that I may have a boogie on the d'floor or a cuddle with your gran, if you think we will get on like a house of fire, then HELLO lovers! x
