The photo-story of a stunning summer wedding in Porvoo

July 29, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last Saturday, we were in Porvoo (Finland) photographing the stunning wedding of Eva & Ronny. One week later, we are ready to share a selection of their beautiful wedding photographs.

If you are looking for a classic white-tulle type of wedding, you are not going to find it here! This wedding was vintage, chic, carefully planned and personalised. It as ALL about Eva & Ronny!

The bride & groom wore a navy - blue lace dress and frack, entered the Church on Andrew Lloyd Webber’ s Phantom of the Opera,  and a Lutheran woman priest was pronouncing them as husband and wife in front of their family and friends coming from all over the world. All this while holding and caressing their baby girl, the fruit of their love!

The wedding was perfect and LOVE was felt in every aspect of it… starting with the vintage hairstyling & make-up of the bride at the beautiful Hyvinvointikeskus Louisé ...

This is not the photograph of a groom, it is the perfect portrait of a loving man, dedicated father and partner. While Eva was at the hairdresser, Ronny was dressing-up himself and baby-sitting Ingrid at the hotel.

Just before the ceremony, we had an hour for couple portraits. Well, the Nordic weather showed its tantrums, but their carefree spirit turned it nevertheless into a stunning day. The portraits speak by themselves...

Horse-riding portraits to be treasured for a lifetime

May 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Natasa was practicing equitation for some time at Endurance riding sport club "Naujadvario žirgai"  when she invited us to have a horse-riding portrait session. She knew she will be leaving Vilnius soon, but not before having photographs to testify the incredible bond she has built with her horse - Arta - while living in Vilnius.

We haven't been taking horse-riding portraits before, but we knew we are able to capture their connection; not just what it looked like when Natasa was horse - riding, but what it felt like. Deep, authentic happiness. Our overall goal was to create unique, artistic portraits to be treasured for a lifetime.

So we said yes and planned a weekend family trip to scout the place. In all honesty, we fell in love with Jovariškes: its beautiful forest and light trails, the lake and the flower bushes next to the stables. Indeed, a wonderful photo-location! We have trekked and photographed the place, prepared a mood-board and discussed all details with Natasa. 

One week later, we have met Natasa, her horse Arta and the trainer for a golden hour photo-session next to the stables and by the lake.

What followed was simply magic!

D'alex Photography offers photography training in Vilnius

April 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The most important in pursuing photography is persistence as it requires this long term commitment to hard work and dedication. You need to train your eye, you need to learn your camera by heart, lighting, composition, directing subject if you do portraiture, studio lights if necessary, editing software, all in a fast-changing industry. So yes, we understand how confusing it might all feel, but do not worry, you will get there!

We are Canon photogs. Might not be a huge difference as camera functions are similar. We have 2 bodies, a Canon 6D and a Canon Mark IV, in terms of lenses we have: 16-40 f.4, 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 and a lens baby composer pro 50mm + 3 speed lights, transmitter and soft boxes for the studio. When we go on field trips, we have all lenses with us. Will invite you to take photos with our camera to understand differences between lenses and focal distances. This will be fun!

Majority of classes will take place at our D'alex Photography Studio, located in Vilnius on Lukiskiu g 5, within walking distance from Gedimino av.

 As regards themes and schedule, here is our proposal:

  •    Chapter 1 - camera settings - understanding the iso - aperture - shutter speed triangle - focal points - manual mode
  •    Chapter 2 - lenses - focal distances - focus area
  •    Chapter 3 - light  
  •    Chapter 4 - composition rules
  •    Chapter 5 - workflow
  •    Chapter 6 - basic editing in camera raw & photoshop + mobile photography editing
  •    Chapter 7 - photographing with intention: setups / conceptual
  •    Chapter 8 - building a sense of style
  •    Chapter 9 - landscape photography
  •    Chapter 10 - night photography
  •    Chapter 11 - portraiture (indoors & outdoors)
  •    Chapter 12 - cinemagraphs

Since we are passionate photographers, we can talk for hours about photography and photograph Vilnius & surroundings forever & beyond. Still, we will limit ourselves to the basic principles that you need to remain with. Then for each two chapters, we suggest having at least 1 photo-trip / photo-session.
Each week we might have 1 hour theory + practice at the studio and every two weeks a photo-trip of 1 hour. How does that sound?

If you are ready for the first lesson, we are more than happy to welcome you at the studio for a cup of tea/coffee and photography talk.

With our warmest regards,

D'alex Photography

April 08, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Whether it is your first or your last Easter in Vilnius, you simply love spring mood in your children's / family portraits, we invite you to enjoy a Easter photo-session in our studio (or anywhere else in Vilnius).

This year, a super-cute, cuddling & fun 2 months old REAL BUNNY is going to be with us for Easter mini-sessions. We photograph Wednesday - Saturday before Easter.

It takes around 60 minutes to shoot on our Easter sets (children tee-pee, Easter decorated blackboard & spring backdrop) prepared and waiting for you at the studio. Few days later you will receive an invitation to download 15 high-resolution hand-retouched portraits from the online gallery and decide on your print options. A digital Easter Card (BONUS) will be ready for you on Easter. The card is going to be personalised with your spring / Easter wishes, in your own language.

Write at info@dalexphotography.com, call us at 861074087 or drop a line indicating your preferred dates through the contact form on the website. We will follow-up shortly after and - if possible for you - meet for a cup of tea and photography talk at the studio.

With our warmest regards,

D'alex Photography
