We instantly loved the work Motiejus had previously done, and naturally enjoyed speaking with him about the wedding.
My husband and I searched for a while in order to find our wedding photographer, as we really wanted to make sure we could look back on good quality photos of the day for years to come. We are British and our wedding was in Italy, so also needed to make sure we could rely on someone to travel to our destination. We looked through online portfolios and spoke to a number of photographers with over email and by telephone. We instantly loved the work Motiejus had previously done, and naturally enjoyed speaking with him about the wedding. We agreed to book and scheduled a day to meet up and discuss the date, location and details of the wedding in detail.
During our meeting we talked about loads of things that we wouldn't have even thought about, and had a laugh at the same time. His tips for weddings was really encouraging and helpful. We explained everything we wanted and liked, and felt as though Motiejus really listened and took all of the information in, while also advising us on other ideas and possibilities. After our meeting we were sent a questionnaire which included things like key people and desired photo locations etc. We admittedly filled this out a bit late, but was extremely helpful on the day, and helped with co-ordinating photos and people quickly yet personally.
Motiejus was on time and enthusiastic throughout the day, and was constantly taking photos. We also found it lovely that he had a good laugh with us before the wedding which put us both at ease. He had a number of great ideas for places to take photos and ways in which to stand etc. It was clear that he had looked around the venue in depth before the ceremony in order to get the best shots, however listened to us if we wanted anything in particular. During the day he was everywhere but never in the way. By the end of the evening, we felt as though he was one of the guests rather than a photographer!
We were treated to a selection of photos shortly after the wedding which really made us realise how good he is, and kept us extremely keen to receive the remainder. When the other photos followed it was certainly clear that he captured every moment of our special day, right from the lovely ceremony to the drunken dancing. The photos were of exceptional quality, and allowed us to relive the whole day again. The ways in which the photos were taken, and bits used in order to produce such fantastic photos was really impressive. Our family and friends have all commented not only on the day, but when we received the photos how professional, easy going and artistic he really is. We would recommend Motiejus to anyone in need of a photographer, and in fact we already have! Thank you again for being a big part of our special day!
