ANDREU DOZ PHOTOGRAPHY

ABOUT US

We are Andreu and Aleksandra, a couple of photographers.

Our adventure with wedding photography started in London, where Andreu studied photography at Goldsmith University and Aleksandra worked as an event organizer in bustling Soho.

We put together the experience in the hospitality environment with our great passion for photography, and we created  our own unique project. For the past 7 years, we have been working to perfect it.

Now, based in Barcelona, we doccument weddings all over Spain and around the world.

We love our job, because it gives us an opportunity to learn about the world in the most authentic way, by meeting people and photographing their happyness.

 

OUR STYLE

Preserving an emotion in an image is the most intryguing and magneting aspect of photography.

We describe our photographic style as direct, honest and documental. Our goal is to tell each wedding story without staging it, interfering with the events or imposing our wiews.

We believe that at weddings magic is always present, one just needs to be willing to spot it.

Before each wedding, we always try to gert to know the couple. It is crucial, that they feel comfortable in our presence. We do not impose time frames. We are flexible and open to ideas.

We work hard to meet the highest expectations, but most of all we ensure our style is maintained in every single photo.

Se casa la hija de un motero!

Se casa la hija de un motero!

Cuando Mireia escogía su coche de novia no esperaba que de camino a la boda la seguiría un convoy de motos. Esta sorpresa la puso en marcha su padre motero y no se equivocó! Los pitos de los cláxones y el zumbido de los motores no sólo hicieron reír a su hija, pero sobre todo distendieron todos los nervios. Mireia salió de su barrio con un apoyo multitudinario y ensordecedor. Los invitados que la esperaban en el Mas de Can Riera escuchaban los motores subiendo la montaña y la emoción en el ambiente aceleró al máximo.

Dos motos guiaron el Rolls-Royce blanco hasta el pasillo desde donde Carlos, el novio, miraba a su prometida emocionado. Todos quedaron impresionados con esta entrada tan atrevida. Después de una ceremonia muy emotiva y personal, el día siguió sin interrupciones, pero el nivel de exaltación no bajo hasta el final!

Mr. & Mrs. MaJos

Literalmente, la boda de Marcela y Jonás, se celebró entre las olas del mediterráneo. Desde que les conocimos, Marcela tenía claro que se iban a casar frente el mar. Lo consiguió con excelencia en el balcón del Castell Tamarit en Costa Dorada. Mirando al mar, acompañados por sus 8 testigos y 80 invitados, dos enamorados se prometieron amor eterno. Parece una boda de sueño, pero pasó de verdad!

Hey! Let´s go to Sitges!

Hey! Let´s go to Sitges!

A destination wedding is what turns a one-day celebration into a unique adventure. It is like a big scale family trip with a twist! Sabrina and Frank could not have picked better. The wedding was held in a church by the sea in Sitges and the rest of the celebration took place in Casa Felix, a magnificent villa lost in the vineyards of Garraf. There was even some time for a quick drink a in a chiringuito by Sitges beach.

 

                                             

So, hey, let´s all go to Sitges! And let this wicket theme from the 80s take us there again and again! Give it a go!

Engagement Session in Barcelona

Engagement Session in Barcelona

You never get bored of this city. Barcelona is both, visually attractive and extremely photogenic. It is a city with personality. To a photographer, it offers a multitude of backgrounds, textures, and an unusual light that changes completely throughout the day. It is modern and traditional, busy and intimate. It reveals an eclectic mixture of old, historic monuments, vibrant day life, multicultural habitants, and the most impressive Art Nouveau architecture (here called Modernisme). Moreover, you can easily change your perspective and admire the city from above by climbing one of many viewpoints (here called Miradores). Barcelona is surrounded by mountains: Montjüic and Tibidabo and some neighbourhoods were build on hills: El Carmel, Horta, Guinardo. If that was not enough, there is plenty of green in Gaudi´s Parque Güell and plenty of salty water at Barceloneta´s beach.

With this unlimited variety of locations, photographing couples in Barcelona is never the same, even if I get to return to the same places. For me, each session is a completely different experience, because every couple has its own energy and style and they interact differently with the surrounding. My idea is to capture those differences and to reflect the essence of each couple in the photographs.

I met with Fu and Chen early in the morning, to photograph them in the old Gothic quarter, before the city fully woke up. Most popular areas tend to get crowded after breakfast, but we got lucky and had some parts of it to ourselves. Beforehand, we planned together a very intense schedule for the day. We decided to photograph in 4 different locations, but also wanted to change outfits and the stylisticks. Parque Güell was our second location, and Chen wore her wedding dress for this occasion. To complement the day, we wondered around the busy streets of Born. The strong afternoon sun and the red dress set perfectly against the old walls of the city. At the end, we moved down to the beach, to end our session bare feet on the sand.

Behind the scenes stories

Behind the scenes stories

 

It was one of those weddings, which takes a slide towards the wild side before it even starts. I loved it from the very beginning. Everywhere I looked, there was something I wanted to photograph, so many little stories within the big picture.

Ruben and Montse, the happy couple, are parents of two girls: Mariona (a natural born model) and Blanca (an unusually independent 2 year old, who wondered around and socialised with everybody requiring no supervision whatsoever). There were about 20 kids at this wedding. Beautiful chaos!

The ceremony was held in a tiny stone church and wedding guests took over its every available surface. The couple was sated in front of the priest. It was steaming hot, dark and I could hardly move.

I had to quickly adapt a strategy here, because it was obvious that moving around to try out different angles and perspective was out of question.

I found a spot with good visibility and brought three large aperture lenses to be able to change the focal range without having to move much. Then, I put all my money on Montse and Rubens reactions. I already knew, they were very spontaneous, emotional and expressive. I did not have to wait long for the children to get bored and move towards the altar. They were looking for attention and entertainment, and luckily for me, had no shame.

In this particular photo, Mariona is trying to attract her parents’ looks and her cousin is trying to get her attention. Naughty but cute!

Interview from Wedding Photography Select

Interview from Wedding Photography Select

Read the entire interview here: Wedding Photographer Spain Andreu Doz

Andreu Doz Photography a wedding photographer based in Spain shares his work with us today in our wedding photography spotlight feature. Andreu received his first camera in high school and realised photography was going to be a big part of his life, so he took himself to London and studied photography at the Goldsmith University. Andreu loves shooting weddings and has shot over one hundred and sixty wedding to date.

Do you have a recent favorite photo that you have taken? Tell us how you took it and why you like it?

Apart from photographing all the big moments, I really like to look, where no one else is looking and see things no one else is paying attention to. For me, those moments are equally important. I took this photo at my last wedding. It was a rainy day and the ceremony was moved under a roof of an old stable. It was packed and this little boy climbed up the window to watch the events from a different perspective. When I saw it I decided to give him his very own spot in this wedding story.

What really gets you emotional when you’re shooting a wedding?

I am an observer, in life and at work – I prefer to stay in the shadows. This is why I do not like to stage my photographs. It makes me uncomfortable to tell people what to do, and I think it makes them uncomfortable too. This is why I always wait for them to show their real emotions. This is what attracts me most in photographing weddings. All those opportunities to witness and capture true joy, affection, kindness, passion, and unity. Preserving an emotion in a photo, it really gets me.

How do you put a couple at ease before and during their big day?

I believe that the key here is to get to know them, and to let them know me. I make an effort to establish a connection with all my couples before the wedding. We meet several times. If they are up for it, I photograph them before the wedding day, in relaxed and casual circumstances. It really helps if they know what to expect. This way they can be themselves in my presence. If it is impossible to meet, due to long distance between us, we Skype and I explain how the wedding day looks from my perspective. I also try to learn as much as possible about them to be able to tell their story honestly.

What is it about being a wedding photographer you love?

I love being on the move. I have always preferred to learn from experience, and this job gives me so many opportunities to travel the world, to meet real people, to see how they live and to share their happiness. Each wedding season is a crazy, busy time for me. It feels like getting on a rollercoaster, and a different one each year.

What is it about being a wedding photographer that you don’t love so much?

Hmm….this is the toughest question you ask. I keep coming back to it and I do not know what to answer.

What photography kit do you have in your bag & what is your favourite?

Canon Body 5Ds, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II, Canon 24-70mm II f/2.8, Canon 70-200mm II f/2.8, Canon 35mm f/1.4, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 85mm f/1.8, Canon 20mm f/2.8, Canon Fisheye 15mm f/2.8, Canon 135mm f/2.

I love all my lenses, but I have a special relationship with my Canon 70-200mm II f/2.8.

What is your favourite part of the day?

I really like to photograph people arriving to the ceremony. This moment is full of electricity and anticipation. I also love the moment when the ceremony ends and everyone gathers to greet the couple, hug them, laugh together, share their joy and show their love. This is when all the stress and tension give room to pure happiness.

What tips would you give a couple on choosing a wedding photographer?

Two things: mutual understanding and connection. Make sure you pick the style you like, research well, ask all the questions you need, and let the photographer know your expectations. Make sure you actually like the wedding photographer as a person. He or she will be with you in a very private and often stressful situation, so it is essential that you feel good in her or his presence.

Why do you think couples choose you?

I have noticed that all couples that choose me have one thing in common, they all say they search for an honest and natural documentation of their wedding. I think this is exactly what they see in my pictures and this is the kind of photography I have to give.

How do you relax when you’re not shooting weddings?

Most of the year I am on the move, my work and my private life blend together and they hardly ever separate. When I stop, I like to hang in a hammock in my garden and spend time with my four cats and a dog.

What are you looking forward to and why?

To be honest, I just want to keep doing what I do – photographing weddings all over the globe.

ANDREU DOZ PHOTOGRAPHY

QUIÉN SOMOS

Somos Andreu y Aleksandra, una pareja de fotógrafos.

Nuestra aventura con fotografía de bodas comenzó en Londres, mientras Andreu finalizaba un Máster en Fotografía en Goldsmith University y Aleksandra trabajaba organizando eventos en el bullicioso barrio de Soho.

Fusionando la experiencia en el sector de organización de eventos y la pasión por fotografía, desarrollamos un proyecto único y seguimos trabajando para perfeccionarlo desde hace 7 años.

Hoy, ubicados en Barcelona, documentamos bodas en toda España y otras destinaciones.

Nos encanta nuestro trabajo porque nos permite conocer el mundo y sus culturas a través de las familias que fotografiamos. A diario nos encontramos con nuevos desafíos y aventuras. Es un verdadero lujo, poder trabajar rodeados de felicidad.

 

NUESTRO ESTILO

La posibilidad de capturar y preservar la emoción en una imagen es lo que mas nos seduce y fascina sobre la fotografía.

Definimos nuestro estilo fotográfico como directo, documental y narrativo. Nuestras fotos son naturales, dinámicas y autenticas. Nuestro objetivo es contar la historia del día, tal como ocurre, sin interferir ni molestar, sin dirigir ni agobiar.

Sabemos que la magia esta presente en cada boda y nuestro reto es capturarla.

Nos gusta conocer a nuestras parejas con tiempo y establecer una relacion personal y cercana. Es importante que se sientan ellos mismos con nosotros, porque las fotografías lo reflejan.

Trabajamos sin límite de tiempo, somos flexibles y abiertos a todo tipo de ideas. Nos aseguramos que la calidad de nuestro trabajo cumplen con las expectativas. Y sobre todo, siempre mantenemos nuestro estilo.
