Gonzo wedding photography & video

Βασιζόμαστε ακριβώς στις ίδιες αρχές, δεν υπάρχει προετοιμασία, δεν υπάρχει σκηνοθεσία, και εμπλεκόμαστε συναισθηματικά 100% στην ιστορία  που τραβάμε.

Ζω την εμπειρία με την ματιά ενός καλεσμένου του γάμου σας, δεν σας δίνω εντολές "κοιτά με λίγο", η κάμερα δεν σβήνει ποτέ, άλλα δεν είναι και  ακριβώς εκεί με την έννοια του φωτογράφου γάμου. 

60% των καλεσμένων σας πιστεύει ότι είμαι ένας φίλος σας που απλά βγάζει φωτογραφίες, δεν καταλαβαίνουν  πως τραβάει η κάμερα μου βίντεο.  Όπως ο HST υπεισέρχομαι στον γάμο σας, και τραβάω απαρατήρητη τις στιγμές των αγαπημένων σας, ελεύθερα uncut, ανθρώπινα.

What does Hunter S Thompson and Lulumeli wedding cinematography have in common?


A form of journalism invented by Hunter S. Thompson. It involves the reporter reporting the action as he/she is in it. Elements are part experience and part fiction. The best example of Gonzo journalism is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Intelligent wedding filming. I have formulated my own style it’s a mix of Hunters cocktail of honesty and fearlessness.

 I will embed myself in your wedding, as a guest; will refrain from shouting any orders "look at the camera, oh please smile". Just like my favorite photographer, Annie Leibowitz says, “I quit asking people to smile at photos a long time ago…You can almost hear a sound of relief when you tell someone you don’t have to smile.”

Isn’t it awkward, to demand it? It is a canned response the fake smile, a component of mediocre photography work. You will shine after all, on your own, all brides radiate luminous clarity on their wedding day, and I have the lenses to capture that magic moment.

 60% of your guests will think I am a friend snapping away photos, they won’t even notice I am rolling video, and this is the secret ingredient of documenting real people. Uncut and free and humanely, real emotions. I don’t stop seeing and framing anymore, it happens to me naturally all day, my eyes have been transformed to lenses.

Gonzo wedding cinematography, this is the way of the brave couples, the adventurous souls, the ones who will travel from afar to meet in a Greek island and have the wedding of a lifetime.
