Behind The Brand
What draws you to wedding photography?
For me wedding photography perfectly combines everything I love about photography: fashion, emotions, people, and details. But most importantly, I know that I am contributing in a significant way to the way the couple will remember one of the most important days of their life. Wedding photography is not only an art form, it’s also history, a contribution to a family’s visual legacy, and something that will be cherished for generations to come. This is what’s constantly in the back of my mind when I take pictures on a wedding day.
How would you describe your photography style?
I bring a timeless and luxurious approach to wedding photography, focusing on capturing editorial portraits and beautiful candids throughout the wedding day, while still infusing each and every frame with the emotion of the day. My signature style attracts couples looking for refined, timeless imagery that carries a romantic sense of cinematic beauty.
What inspires you creatively?
My love for the arts, and in particular fashion, music, and cinema, is something I have in common with my clients. I always have a soundtrack in mind when photographing a couple, and sometimes a whole story develops in my head as I work with them – without them necessarily being aware of it.
What is it that makes an image magical?
There are a lot of things that can make a photograph magical: a perfectly executed portrait, a discreet glaze between lovers, an unassuming detail, or a slither of diffused natural light. But a truly accomplished image should not only capture a feeling, but it should also elicit one too. It should stir an emotional response in the viewer, tell a story, and seek an emotion to make everlasting.
What advice would you give couples when selecting their wedding photographer?
Firstly: don’t follow trends. Look at the work of your photographer, and ask yourself: will these still look beautiful in 10, 20, 50 years from now? Secondly: make sure you actually like the photographer. You will be spending a significant amount of time with them on your wedding day, and they will be with you during the most intimate moments (getting ready, first look, couple portraits) – so you really want that to be a person you feel comfortable around.
Your dream location to shoot a wedding?
Anything unusual, but Mexico and Africa are high up on my bucket list.
Why we love Nina…
Evocative and heartfelt, Nina’s artistic expression of romance has us feeling things through photographs of complete strangers. She knows a remarkable image does more than just capture a feeling; it elicits one as well, telling a story, and creating a lasting emotional impact.
For the couple…
Perfect for modern couples seeking elegant, everlasting visuals that capture the romantic essence of cinematic beauty.
As Nina said, every photo she captures on a wedding day is a priceless contribution to a family’s visual history, a treasured keepsake that will be admired and passed down through the years. And a connection between a photographer and subject can have profound impacts on the final outcome, so get in touch, and see if you think you can create magic together.
