2- Sarah Kang Photography

San Francisco, California

Hi, welcome to my website! I’m a San Francisco-based photographer, and I’ve been photographing weddings and families since 2007.  My style is photo journalistic/documentary, and as you may have gathered from my photos, I’m drawn to emotions, beauty, and authentic, natural moments. 

I was born in Korea and raised all over the US.  I’ve also lived in Boston, NY, and Paris. I’ve always loved the adventure of discovering new places.  I love to travel and especially enjoy finding out-of-the-way spots where nobody speaks English. 

I married my best friend and the kindest person I know on a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. These days you can find us in San Francisco seeking out good wine bars, spending time with friends and family, rock climbing, or brushing up on our Italian – all made twice as fun with our carefree young son (except for the wine part 😉 ).  

Thanks for visiting, I’d love to learn about your story…drop me a line!

3 – Rob Dodsworth

Norfolk-UK, England

I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings and families since 2010.

One of the best things in life is a good story and that’s what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by.

I get my best images when you’re just being yourselves – natural light and natural emotions!

6- Valeria Mameli

How do you feel when looking the person you love in the eyes, when you laugh, leaning your head back while playing with your child?
For me, photography means telling stories. Your love story, the life that is about to be born, the family you are building day by day, and that expression: it lasts a second, and is likely to fade away.

10- Igor Matey

Voronezh, Russia

My name is Igor and I take pictures of people.

I love to run in the morning, in the early mornings, preferably in the forest for 5-7 kilometers, and when the form allows and for 10-15 kilometers. I also like to swim, swim in the water for 1,5-2 kilometers, or better in the sea. I love joy on my parents face, sincere conversations with people close in spirit, to drive my car, practically all the lines of the runner Murakami and wretched Welsh, to watch a movie after which you can not find a place. I like to leave the theater, bringing out something new, unknown. Generally I like people, different … not always it certainly turns out. I like to travel, it is not important where, it is not important with whom, it is important as …
If something from me said resonates with your idea of ​​life, I’m sure we will find a common language.

What to wear during my Photo Shoot?

The selection of proper clothing for your portrait is a critical factor in the preparation for a successful portrait. If the clothing is noticeable or overbearing in a portrait, it could easily become a distraction. Clothing that does not attract attention to itself is the ultimate goal. It could be the difference between a very successful portrait and just another picture. You may be asked to change your clothing selection before I take your portraits if you do not follow these basic guidelines.

Dark clothing tends to slenderize. Darker clothing helps to blend the bodies with the background, so that the faces are the most important part of the photograph. Dark colors definitely tend to slenderize the subject.

Tone down bright colors. Bright colors attract attention away from the face and may be reflective. Avoid wearing red, bright pink, bright green etc. When choosing lighter colors, stick to pastels, but avoid pink tones. Pale yellow and pale blue work well, especially with jeans or khaki pants. These colors work great in nature for example, if you have a sunset photography session booked in.

Light clothing can look beautifully fresh. If you are worried about not appearing slender then it is safer to avoid white. White can look beautifully simple and fresh. White shirts and/or blouses under a dark jacket are perfect.

Prints and patterns are a definite NO. This includes logos. Avoid prints of any kind and patterns. No matter how small the print or the pattern, it will become a distraction. In the case of digital portraits, in particular, small patterns in clothing (even a small herring-bone or checkered pattern) can cause terrible distortions to appear in the portrait that are not originally there.

Avoid short sleeve clothing and short pants. Long sleeved clothing is a MUST! For casual portraits it is equally important to wear long pants instead of shorts. When arms and legs are exposed to the camera there will be more flesh in the photograph in those areas than on the face, itself. This is a major distraction.

Don’t over accessories! Overbearing or heavily noticeable accessories can be a major distraction. Simple and minimal works best.

Glasses. Eye glasses may or may not be worn. Non-reflective lenses, of course, are a big help. Better yet, sometimes it’s possible to obtain a matching set of frames without any lenses. This is particularly helpful, if your lenses sometimes distort the outline of your face.

Tip. Lay out all the clothing onto a bed. Shoes, socks, stockings – everything should be included…shoes, too! Then, take a careful look at the collection. If your eye goes to any one item in particular, you can be certain that the same thing will happen in a photograph. That item should be changed. Clothing should not be too tight or too loose.
