Looking back on our wedding during lockdown times is one of the few joys we can still have, and Sonia V Photography has made doing so one of the most fantastic and seamless experiences that my wife, myself and our guests can have.
When looking for a wedding photographer, my wife and I looked for someone who can tell a story, as well as someone who is talented at capturing moments. Sonia's portfolio caught our eye, and believe me when I say that she can capture the essence of the moment in a still photo.
During pre-wedding, Sonia's advice, planning and guidance helped immensely, coming close to the level of involvement we received from our hired day-of-coordinator and venue staff. She is experienced and will help wherever she can in planning shoots during the day, and will offer advice to make sure all the moments you want (and the ones you never think of) are covered.
Sonia and the SVP team were amazing shooters during the wedding itself, and set themselves apart by capturing all the moments. Some photographers only focus on the couple, but that leaves a lot of gaps in the day, and I can attest to the fact that your wedding will be a whirlwind, and there are many fun things happening around you that you will miss. SVP will make sure to capture many of those moments around you, so you can share them will the people you love, even if you're busy cake cutting or taking your own special photoshoot elsewhere.
I would highly recommend SVP to anyone looking to have their wedding flow in an organic manner, but still want to have the magic captured. Sonia will take the time to pose you every once in a while for the typical shots, but the majority of the time, she will float around, always alert, ready with the right lens, lighting, position and even props of her own to get some killer shots. I am still blown away to this day at some of the split-second moments she captured, in full focus, that perfectly explain a wonderful coincidence, a new inside joke, or a fleeting moment that would have faded away with time. Now those moments live forever. And look pretty damn good in a frame.
Thank you Sonia and SVP.
