Approach


APPROACH

My approach to photography is documentary, almost candid kind. I’m there, but most of the time you don’t notice me. This allows me to just be present and observe, and it also allows you to relax and be your most natural and thus most beautiful self.

So, what is mindful wedding photography?

 

Being mindful is being aware. Not judging, but accepting this present moment. Leaving the past and future behind and working with what you have right now.

And for me as a wedding photographer it means allowing myself to just observe so I can truly see what is in front of me. I also like to directing less, and letting things happen more.

 

In practice this means that when I shoot I pay extra attention trying not to get carried away thinking how I did it previous times, or how other photographers do it. Instead by looking through my lens, I always see new things in front of me, new location, different season, time of the day, and of course the couple with it’s unique energy.

First, I have to say that my husband and I changed our wedding date because Dragana had been already booked for our initial date. She’s both extremely professional as well as so kind, nice and fun. I don't feel very comfortable as a model, but she managed to make literally hundreds of photos that I absolutely love! Dragana is THE PERFECT wedding photographer and on your wedding day you shouldn't settle for anything less than the perfect! Ljubica & Pedja

The stars aligned and the moment I started talking to Dragana. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is kind, soft and down to earth. What I loved most about her work was that she captures moments, natural moments, real life moments. She has spectacular eye for the unexpected. Looking at our wedding pictures, there were moments I didn't remember had actually happened until I saw the photos. I am thrilled that we were able to have Dragana as our photographer for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day. - Payvand & Adam

Q&A


Q&A

Q&A


Q&A

Before we begin

 
  • Why do you shoot weddings?

Because I’m all the time surrounded by love, beauty and happy people.

Also, for me as a photographer it’s never boring. Wedding photography consists of so many different photography skills. During the day, I’m constantly switching from fashion editorial when posing bride and couple, to product photography when shooting details, over to portraits, and then to event photography when shooting reception and the party.

  • What is your approach?

I am specialized in modern documentary, candid kind of to photography. I am there, but most of the time you don’t notice me. I also shoot everything that is important for you that day, including preparations, reception, ceremony, formal family portraits, party, etc.

  • Do you travel for weddings?

Absolutely! I love to travel and will be delighted to shoot your destination wedding. There are many locations I’m dreaming of visiting and if your wedding is in one of them, I might shoot it for a special discounted price.

So make sure you contact me here to require a special quote a tell me a little bit more about your dream day.

  • Do you have back up camera?

Yes.

  • Do you have a second shooter?

Yes. That said, 96% of the time I shoot on my own, and unless your wedding has more than 250 guests, then I would strongly suggest that there is no need for a second shooter.

From my experience, if we organize well, one person is more than enough to cover everything.

During the wedding

 
  • Can you help us choose the locations for our photo shoot?

Sure! But before we go further, I want to ask yourself what kind of images you want look at in 20-30 years?

I’m all for meaning, and the first thing I always suggest is that you choose locations that have a special meaning to two of you. But if there is no such place, then It all boils down to your personal preference and time we have. I usually suggest we shoot along the route from home/hotel to venue and combine different styles. Like for example, do some street photography, then go to a park, and spice it up with some gallery or coffee shop. That will make diversity in backgrounds and make different atmosphere in every photo.

  • How much time we need for a photo shoot?

Ideally, leaving 1-2 hours for photo shoot would be the best. And if you can choose, then the “golden hour” - one hour before sunset is also the best time to do it.

  • What happens in a case of a bad weather?

If you can’t change it, then I would say just embrace it. Enjoy it, make fun of it and use it to have images like no one else. Literally. Colourful umbrella and funky rain boots are just one example. Or even better, go bear foot and connect to mother earth even on your wedding day.

My gear is splash proof so I am good to go. Raindrops, reflections, ponds... I can't wait to play with it. The only question is how playful and ready to experiment you are.

  •  We are not models and don't know how to pose, especially my fiancee. Help!

Great, that just means you are my typical couple. Nice meeting you!

Trust me, you don’t need to know anything about posing. All you need to do is just be you and be in love, and I’ll do the rest. First, I’ll help you relax so it doesn't look like we are shooting at all. And then, by observing your natural posture, I’ll help you pose in the way that feels  comfortable and looks flattering.

But the best is to read testimonials from couples I have worked with, and see their first hand experiences.

After the wedding

  • Do you edit all the photos?

Yes! And I do it by color and contrast enhancements only. Face touch ups and removing little spots and dots included, but I don’t use photoshop at all. So if you find some people on my photos looking good, know that they are just people like you, naturally beautiful.

  • I love b&w photos. Do you make them too and how much of those we can expect to get?

I like them too! There is no set rule as I prefer my creativity to guide me, but in each set of photos there is usually at least 20% of b&w photos. For example in the set of photos where you are putting your dress on, at least  2 out of 8 images will be black and white.

  • How many images we get and in what format?

Depending on what your day consists of from the preparations to the party - is there a church wedding, bridal party, portraits with guests, and so on, you’ll get in between 500-700 full resolution digital JPG edited files + 100 collages. In addition to regular images I also make collages which are 2 or 3 photos in 1, creating small stories, like ones you can see here.

  • Do you give raw files as well?

No, for a few reasons. I like to have creative control over my work. Also, you hire me because you trust my decision making that in those 500-700 images you get, I will give you only and all the best images I have.

  • Do you put watermark on our images?

No. I only use watermark when posting images online. The photos you’ll get have no branding on them, and if you want to share them and your happiness with everyone. I’ll highly encourage it. Only one thing

Do we click?

 

Shooting weddings for me is very personal. I want to fully commit, to invest my time, skills and energy and connect only with like minded people. Understanding each other will help us create something even more beautiful and meaningful together.

Whoever you are, I really want you to be happy with your wedding images.

Please NOTE that my approach to wedding photography is a bit different. I am simply not perfect cut for everyone. So do take time to look at my portfolio again, read more about me, check Q&A, and if you have any further question, feel free to ask.

 
 

We click if:

- You are kind human being - Sure, “life" happens to all of us, but you know that any problem you have, the solution is easier to find when you let kindness lead you.

- You like to play and experiment - Even though it is your wedding day, you are always open to explore and play more

- You trust that life loves you and supports you - And occasionally you have that feeling that you love your life so much too, you want to hug it and squeeze it in return.

- You feel that light inside - You feel that you are so much more then your profession, your age, your race, your body shape. That you are simply amazing and beautiful! If you feel all this, then YES please, by all means contact me right away, and let’s work together (on anything)!

I can't hear a click if:

-You dream about your wedding ever since you were a little girl - That is a lot of time for thinking, planning and envisioning every detail. But life usually take its own course, and things doesn’t go as planned. Which just puts too much pressure on everyone involved in your wedding day including me.

- You want your photos to be photoshopped - Then we disagree big time, because I honestly I think you are beautiful just the way you are.

- You want me to replicate other photographer’s work - Sure, nothing is new, everything is already seen, and we are all influenced by someone or something. But directly replicating other people’s work is stealing intellectual property and I really don’t want to be part of it. I’d rather spend that time creating something uniquely beautiful with you. You know, something other brides can admire.
