THE COUPLE

THE COUPLE

A day to enjoy being the couple

Empty tab. Edit page to add content here.

Couple. A word that wants to sound old if it is pronounced slowly, but that contains a great meaning and summarizes what you are, at least on this day. Two people who have decided to go a step further, climb a step up the level of commitment to look from above and without fear. That’s why a wedding is joy and it’s beauty, it’s freshness and tenderness, it’s true, and that’s how we want your couple photographs to be.

In Oliver & Viladoms Studio we think that a wedding should take place naturally, without interrupting too much the times of that day. It is important that you, the Bride and Groom, enjoy every moment, the company of your people, your Wedding basically. For those powerful reasons the photographs that we make of you as a couple will have as a frame some places of the Wedding, they will be incredible places, with an aesthetic of intensity more than enough to get the kind of photography that we are all looking for, natural, fresh and, at the same time, elegant. We do not want you to stay in front of the camera when you’re looking forward to joining the party, that tension would eat the fun, and we want you to have fun, to the fullest.

However, the expressions that your face shows the day of the Wedding does not reflect it any other day. Surely it is something unconscious, but that illusion, that joy, endow you with a special light that shines through in the final image. And being your Wedding photographers we want to take advantage of that magic. So we will take care of knowing all the enclaves that we will have available for that day, because your opinion is crucial, we will make the best decision. Perhaps the place where your Ceremony is celebrated, whether it is religious or a civil ceremony, is of a particular beauty and offers us endless options. Or maybe the farmhouse, the hotel, the place where the wedding banquet is going to take place have outdoor areas and gardens with multiple possibilities.

The most important thing is that the environment chosen as an enclave for your couple photographs fits with your image, which is part of the final set. Undoubtedly all the photographs of your wedding have to be guided by a thread, that is you. That is why each chosen corner will reflect your personality and what makes you happy, be it a palm tree, the sea or an old church. We will find the perfect corner for the perfect photographs.

Because we believe that you, the Bride and Groom, are the undisputed protagonists of an incredible day and that has to be noticed. We want, and we know how to create a unique Wedding report for each couple, within our particular way of counting through documentary photography, through the naturalness of the spontaneous gesture, but without forgetting your personal history. You are the Bride and Groom, it is your day. We have already been separately with each of you in your preparations, we have been during the Ceremony very aware of everything and everyone, now is your time. A private kiss, a corresponded look, a stolen caress. Imagine that our camera does not exist and let yourself be carried away by the emotion of a newly released Wedding. And long live to the couple!

PARTY

Let the music sound!

Many are the Weddings in which the feet begin to move under the tables possessed by the desire to party. After all, a wedding is that, a party. Everything has gone perfect, until the last dish has found the glory, the music begins to sound and it is time to lose the forms, abandon the decorum and let go at night, accomplice of the joy that governs the environment. Sharp heels to the floor, ties to the air, the party asks for comfort and laughter. We, as wedding photographers, love these moments full of freshness and fun in which the photographs follow each other. It is pure spontaneity and we love that.

Of course, we will take into account all the details that you have been preparing to accompany your party. Because it is not only about music, which is important in itself, whether it is a professional DJ or a group that plays live music, it is that there are many special corners in the space chosen for the celebration. Starting with gifts that facilitate the movement of the ladies, like those baskets of flat shoes, or thinking of appeasing warmth typical of a lot of movement, like the fans. Great are the corners that take on a life of their own, like the photocall, a perfect excuse to have fun in front of a camera, the result of those gestures is fantastic. The bigger the party, the better the pictures, no doubt.

We love those moments of the night when the hunger reappears and the guests are surprised with a hot chocolate with churros, some crepes, or whatever the couple have thought to appease those nocturnal cravings that appear at all parties. Those details are more grateful than endless dinners, it’s more fun and more timely. And, of course, more than one laugh will strain between bites, between drinks. We are still surprised by the endurance of the youngest and the oldest. In beautiful weddings, and we must say that the weddings of Oliver & Viladoms Studio are all like that, nobody wants to leave. It has installed a warm climate of pleasant party, good drinking and better laugh. Many guests who have not been able to barely be with the couple, finally enjoy their company now.

During the party photographs with movement come to be, with humor and with much camaraderie. Everyone seeks to have fun, and the couple is the first to look for it. Gone are the tensions and nerves, the only important thing is to save memories of fantastic moments. Those memories take shape in our cameras that do not hesitate to join the party. Because you can not count joy unless you feel it. As photographers, we have fun at each wedding, at each party, because we want to be noticed in the result. And our photographs can tell you that a thousand times better than us. Party, music, fun guests, exhilarating couple, incredible details, while the lights align with the moment and the night becomes an accomplice. Incredible moments to never forget.

POST-WEDDING

A photo session for two

Empty tab. Edit page to add content here.

Far from spoiled watches that seem to eat the hours there is a place designed to recreate in time, the time between the two of you. A place chosen with care, affection and a delicate plastic vision, in which we will be, our cameras and the history that together we want to tell. We are talking about a very special photo session that is the post-wedding session. Because the day of the wedding happens very fast and is full of moments and people who do not want to lose any second and can not be everywhere. Because you can not stop that day for your photos. And, above all, because you deserve this end of party, this special brooch that closes a unique stage in your life. A few photographs taken care of to the maximum as colophon of an unforgettable Wedding.

A post-wedding is a perfect time to go back and dress as bride and groom. Let’s enjoy that dress as if there was no end, no matter if it gets stained or twisted. It is not necessary that you tie your tie, or even that you wear it. You can be the couple that in the end you wanted to be. Let the wind get your hair tangled, or the beard stick out a couple of days. What you most want. We will seek with the maximum care the best corners, the best light, the perfect framing. Because we have the most important thing, we have time. Time to create photographs of a different, special beauty. The time of the wedding marks the rhythm of work and this is how it should be, now we make the rules, couple and photographers, now the day belongs to us, and we can play with it at our whim. Let’s have fun.

We will choose an enclave that you like, that has meaning for you or, simply, because it is a place of special beauty. We will pursue the sunset splashing the air, reflected in your faces already relaxed and delivered to your particular session. You have permission to be funny, romantic, playful, steal kisses, run barefoot, do not let go of your hand. Everything you want. While we, always attentive, will pursue that gesture, that look, that moment, we will pursue the perfect photography.

This enclave can be urban, because the streets of Barcelona, or the city you choose always keep surprising corners. We can go to the beach, the coast surrounds us and it is wonderful. Maybe you like your post-wedding session in full nature, with the green as a backdrop. There are as many possibilities as your imagination wants. Because our house is in Barcelona, but we will follow you, without a doubt, where you want to go. No hurry, with maximum respect for our profession of professional photographers and, above all, with the still fresh memory of your Wedding, with the feelings hanging around the house. Without a doubt, your post-wedding photographs will be an incredible and very special memory.

CEREMONY

CEREMONY

More than just a ceremony, a promise

Empty tab. Edit page to add content here.

The day of your wedding is the result of months of preparation, of weeks of content nerves, the perfect dress, the perfect menu, the decoration, the guest list … Even with the help of a good wedding planner it is quite an experience. But we can not be fooled, the great reason that has led you to that great day is none other than the illusion of a promise, an “I do”, stronger than all those pronounced before. For that beautiful and powerful reason, the Ceremony is a crucial moment, unique instants in which emotions are so concentrated that can almost be touched. Our cameras know it, and they catch those unrepeatable seconds that speak without a voice. Gestures full of truth, affection and complicity, they tell everything about you. Our job is to hide between the corners and stay attentive to bring every emotion to the lens, and transform every moment into an image.

Every ceremony has a particular rhythm. The common denominator of all of them are  the extolled feelings and the nervous laughter, but without a doubt all of them are different. As Wedding photographers, at Oliver & Viladoms Studio, we think it is important to know well the type of ceremony that you are going to celebrate, in order to pay special attention to the important details of each one. For a couple that celebrates a Religious Wedding certain moments have priority over a couple who chooses a Civil Ceremony. They are different ways of telling the same story. Even within the religious ceremonies we like to know the idiosyncrasy of each creed, so that, with a simple look at the wedding photography, it is perfectly clear whether it has been officiated by a Christian, Protestant or Jewish rite, or the confession that is. It is your Wedding it has to feel that way, especially in a moment of such emotional charge like the Ceremony.

That is why we take our time getting to know the location where it is going to take place, even if it is an Elopement, where the Ceremony may not be real, for us as if it was. We always make sure to study the angles, look for frames, pursue the light, even in small enclosures, or to invent shadows in broad daylight. All this without you noticing our presence because, above all, we want to reflect what is happening, document your wedding without interfering at any time.

The pictures of your Ceremony are special, they allow you to live what happened seen from the outside, adding more emotion to a special moment. In addition, in most ceremonies the couple is usually placed backwards to the people, and can’t see most things. And for us it is like a gift to be able to show you the reactions of your family, of your friends, gestures full of joy and truth. To live your Ceremony through photographs fruit of spontaneity is an experience that you can not miss. We will be happy to tell you all about it.

DETAILS

DETAILS

Your Wedding, the sum of thousand details

Empty tab. Edit page to add content here.

Even the most discreet of objects has its meaning. You have been imagining your wedding starting with the big thing, but have ended up getting to the smallest thing. The details are what differentiate a Wedding from the others, one Bride from another. Two brides can wear the same dress and get no one to notice it, because each one of those women wraps it with its own scent, wears it with needle sandals or with wide heels, it loosens her hair or picks it up, shows beautiful earrings or exhibits tattoos. It’s a matter of details. And the same thing happens with every aspect of the Wedding. The enclave that the bride and groom choose for their celebration seems to be transformed, changing color, because the floral arrangements change it completely, the entire decoration is able to move the same place to another time. It’s magical, and it’s a matter of details.

In Oliver & Viladoms Studio we know that all those details have a great importance, precisely because they personalize your Wedding, and we do not want anything to escape us, that none of those pieces of your particular puzzle go unnoticed. That’s why we love that you tell us everything. We will take good note and every important detail will have its own photograph, a beautiful photograph, impregnated with freshness that will give that detail the outstanding place it deserves in your Wedding Report.

To some extent photographing details is like recreating paintings, in which the pieces of those still lives are now the alliances or the ring of request, perhaps that special bouquet with the flowers chosen with extreme care next to the pin of the proud best man, a fantastic headdress, a jewel with history, some different cuff links. Dressing the bride and groom is more than just dressing them, it is giving them a personality, their own.

That personality is what permeates the entire Wedding, involving all attendees. That is why it is so important and before the living room is full of people, we will take care of the decoration of the tables, the dishes you have chosen, the centers and arrangements that adorn each corner, very personal details like thank you cards, or the special way in which you advertise the menu. Lights, candles, an imagined environment and, finally, taken to reality, a reality that belongs to you and is special. That day needs to be observed and conserved forever.

The same church and it surprises us again, it seems another one. Again the details show its importance and its power to transform spaces and move anyone who is there to the place where the couple want to be on their wedding day. Even the arrival of the Bride is a very different experience in each case, because each couple has looked for their way to start, on foot or by car, while in the background their music sounds, that music and no other, their lights, children of earnest bearers of treasures playing a great role and capable of spontaneous gestures of an incalculable value.

So many details, so many photographs waiting to be captured, the same happens with the Wedding video, where in addition to what you see we can tell what is heard and raise the intensity of the feeling. Your wedding is different because you are, and we want to tell everything, even the smallest detail.

GROOM

BRIDEGROOM

Because a wedding is a matter of two

It is true that in a Wedding the Bride seems to take all the protagonism, factors such as the aesthetic impact of her wardrobe influence a lot, among others. But at Oliver & Viladoms Studio we think that you, the Bridegroom, deserve the same treatment and the same place. A wedding is a matter of two, and in a wedding report of documentary photography, as the type of photography we use, the moments with you are as important as the ones we spent with her. Therefore, we will be by your side all day, catching your nerves and your illusion, because they are there, as they should be. After all, you are the Bridegroom.

Another important factor is that of all the elements that make up a wedding, photography is one that most arouses your attention and curiosity. There is no Bridegroom who does not want to be involved in making decisions about his Wedding Photography. You like to talk with us about all aspects of photography, including the most technical details, it is a priority for you, and that fact, as professional photographers, you will understand that we love it.

Above all, we want you to feel comfortable at all times, because one thing is to taste the photograph and another is to be in front of the objective. As wedding photographers we know that not everyone is used to having a watching camera by their side, but we can promise you that, thanks to our way of working and being, you will hardly notice our presence. We seek to tell who you are and what you feel through each of the photographs that are born in your wedding. And we say that they are born, because we are not going to invent them, we are going to let the situation and your reactions go weaving by itself the image. Because we look for that image to be the fruit of spontaneity, otherwise that man photographed in a suit and tie will not be you.

And we want the real you, the version of you more hooligan or more serene, more rogue or more romantic, simply each of you have your own way of being and that personality has to be perceived in each photograph. That’s why we like to respect the scene with all its elements. From the beginning, those moments when you start dressing up, almost always with a vigilant mother a thousand times more nervous than you, and a lot of friends who have come to cheer and cheer you up. Those laughs, those anxieties, are real, and we love them. Just let yourself go for the moment.

We are being serious when we say that you should let yourself go. Forget the protocols and be yourself. Photography has the ability to tell the truth, and when a bridegroom is having fun at his wedding, when he is enjoying every second, it shows a lot. Your face relaxes, your jaw loosens and you shoot alone the camera wanting to capture you like that, happy. It’s your wedding day and it can not be otherwise. A happy bridegroom but, above all, authentic. No matter if your wedding is here in Barcelona or where you want to take us, but do not stop being natural at any time, because our photography will also be. We are gonna have a good time.

BRIDE

THE BRIDE

La mejor versión de ti misma.

Empty tab. Edit page to add content here.

Forget everything they told you, everything they expect from you, those voices that do not stop giving advice. It’s not their wedding, it’s yours. You are the Bride and you have to enjoy every moment, from the first hours until dawn. The day belongs to you and we want to accompany you along the way.

You must be asking yourself how do we accompany you in Oliver & Viladoms Studio, very simple, being by your side without you hardly noticing. The reason is simple, the more spontaneous the more beautiful photographs, because your gesture relaxes when you forget that there is a watching camera. If we can go unnoticed much better. Our photography is documentary, our job is to tell, in this case, to tell your day, your nerves, your beautiful ones, your smiles, which will be many, your emotions, authentic. To sum up, photograph you. Because each Bride is special, unique, and she has to feel that way when walking through her wedding with her eyes and memory.

The more we know about you, the better, because we will be clear about what is important. There are many details, many accessories, the protected dress, the beloved sandals. And each of those elements has a reason to be. We love to start the wedding with the preparations, always in a respectful and as subtle as possible manner, capture those nervous laughs between carmine and confidences with friends who are more than just friends, the anxious walking of the best man whose tie is asphyxiating him for the anxiousness, that great bustle.

And more incredible moments. You can not imagine how special it is to see you arrive at the place of the Ceremony. The expressions of joy of your guests and, above all, the face of your Bridegroom, is priceless. All those fleeting situations are photographs that will tell you what you did not see, because you can not see everything, but we can, we do it for you. And we will take care to photograph your Ceremony without being seen, so we have what we like the most, photographs full of naturalness and truth. Your true wedding.

You will be beautiful, because our job is to show you that beauty is everywhere, you just have to be attentive to see it. Part of our passion as wedding photographers is to look for that beauty and catch it forever. You will like yourself, in all the images, you will not know which one to choose. And, best of all, you’ll like being yourself. Because as we said at the beginning, it is your Wedding and you must feel authentic. You also have to take that authenticity to your Wedding photographs.

The party will arrive, and we will stay by your side, with the tail of the dress in hand and the shoes on the floor, because you are like that, fun and spontaneous. And your people with you, enjoying a fantastic day in which everything has gone as planned or even better, because the joy overflows and that is the best scenario. The Wedding you wanted, being the woman that you are, dressed as a Bride, but yourself, with a ring that tells what you feel. You are happy. That beautiful truth is what we want to capture in every photograph, emotions and life. The life of a Bride on a magical day, your day.

PRE-WEDDING

Pre-wedding

Antes de la Boda, tiempo para los dos.

A thousand emotions in a day. Just a few hours to keep in your pocket all the feelings that can fit and all the laughter. This is a wedding. In Oliver & Viladoms Studio we think that this day can and should be extended, we can play to create a day with more hours to make your Wedding grow and your memory has more moments to save. You deserve that and more.

Close your eyes and let the mind take you to that special corner of the world, it does not have to be ostentatious or far away, it simply has to be meaningful to you. Maybe a place that you walk together every day, maybe a hiding place in which a ring became a promise, or maybe that beach that has smiled at you during more than a dawn. That place is the perfect set for a very special session. Its name is Pre-wedding and born for fun and delight. We leave the clocks and the protocol to let the day take us where your complicity decides.

These pre-wedding sessions are the perfect time to lose your fear of the camera, so we can show you in action and before the wedding, our way of understanding and living the picture. A natural and fluid way of working in which there is no place for fake gestures, quite the contrary, our camera likes to pursue the moment rather than invent it. So the freedom of movement is complete. Little by little we will create a comfortable climate in which, without realizing it, you will find yourself enjoying while each photograph comes to be with the special beauty that the illusion imprints on everything it touches. Because the wedding is close and it shows.

A pre-wedding, exempt from rules, may be the perfect occasion for you, the Bride, to wear your hair as rebellious as you want or to wear that dress that is not too decorous for the Ceremony, while your Bridegroom wears simple jeans and nothing in the feet. Without disguises or artifices, imagining that you have devised a plan for your day off, the difference is that someone, that is us, will be capturing the best moments. Very special and different photographs will come to be, those hours that we promised will be born there so you can be able to savor your Wedding for a longer time.

Our house is in Barcelona, but we have traveler souls, so by saying that you have the freedom to decide your destination, we really mean it. We will be happy to go with you wherever you want. As it will also be a pleasure to help you find magnificent locations if you come from afar, because you have chosen a Destination Wedding and the idea of having more photos than those of the Wedding is appealing. Delighted to document these fantastic moments that will not happen again and that contain that plastic beauty that, as wedding photographers, we love to capture and turn into memories.

Because before being husband and wife you are friends, because fun has to take place every day, because you deserve more, and we want to give you everything, let’s set a date for your pre-wedding and spend a memorable day together.
