11 Jul Alternative Wedding Photographer
Alternative Wedding Photographer
I really enjoy working as an alternative wedding photographer so I thought I would talk about what is like and how I can provide a natural and alternative approach on your wedding day. My job means a lot to me and I take pride in creating this small business of mine from scratch. This means, your wedding is in good hands as I always do my best whatever the day brings.
Working as an alternative wedding photographer doesn’t necessarily mean photographing alternative weddings, of alternative couples. It means taking an alternative approach to being a wedding photographer and working with couples who are looking for something unique and wish to capture the real moments in a beautiful creative way. My approach on the day is simple, I am following the event with my camera and capture the fun and joy, the laughter and tears.
I believe alternative wedding photography means focusing on the authentic and true yourselves
The truth is that a lot of my couples think outside the box or are artistic minds or there are a lot of teachers, they like things a certain way and have clear ideas. My couple have the desire to have a wedding that’s all about who they are as people and as a couple. And the wedding photography approach is important to them as they wish to have their day captured in a way that shows the uniqueness of each person and vibe of their big day.
I believe I can capture the authenticity and special moments of weddings. Focusing on all the things and details that make your wedding unique. Focusing on the joy people bring to each wedding. Focusing on the emotion. I love nothing more than being everywhere (and a lot of the time hardly noticed) and photographing those special moments and finding creative and artistic ways. It’s about bringing the real you and real feelings. Focusing on using candid wedding photography to tell your story at the same time as an artistic approach.
I call myself a fine art alternative wedding photographer with a natural approach. I use soft focus most of the time, that’s why you’re drawn to my photography. I love to shoot diverse couples and diverse weddings. I love the fact that every wedding is different, I the type of person who needs a variety I couldn’t do a job where I do the same thing over and over again. What’s consistent across my work though is my storytelling and what makes you and your day unique. I love photographing happiness and truly touching moments. I focus on the story of the day – from the obvious moments, you’d expect (ceremony, first kiss, first dance…) to the in-between moments like laughter, joy, and interactions between guests. All the little details are my favourite. The cheeky smile of a little boy or the fun game your loved one is winning. the couples alone time as well as moments with family and close friends. I also pay attention to all the decorations around the venue, flowers, table settings, food… I absolutely love the photos on the dance floor. After the first dance when everyone is super relaxed and let their joy glow in the most natural way. I often want to dance but capturing that kind of happiness and freedom of each person is, for me, the best way of expressing my joy.
Big thank you to my couples expressing their gratitude
It was such a pleasure to with Sasha. Sasha was so lovely, it was honestly like having an extra guest. And you get fantastic photos! We enjoyed every moment of the process, it was easy and simple. We chose Sasha because I knew the quality of her work from a friend’s wedding we attended last year. We can’t thank Sasha enough, we had the best experience with her for our wedding photography. Just an incredible photographer and a great person. The quality of the photos is stunning in every single photo. We are slowly arranging our collection of favourites for the album but it’s so tough to narrow the photos down.

We can’t recommend Sasha enough. Whoever is looking for a spectacular photographer, Sasha will very much tailor her art to your own personality and style. She knows how to add that individual touch that will highlight all that unique touches to you and your day. Sasha instantly grasped our interests, she knew exactly what we wanted, and she captured our wedding beautifully. We mainly appreciated her reliability. Our communication was clear and Sasha always replied to our emails within a day or two. We felt we can rely on Sasha from the beginning.

Sasha was our wedding photographer in November. She was a breath of fresh air in the world of ‘posed’ wedding photographers. She is an artist in capturing the feeling of moments perfectly. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to have a hassle-free AMAZING rendition of their big day. Best decision ever.
