How do you think or would like people to describe you?

It doesn’t matter how I want people describe me. I guess that I would like my clients to describe me as professional, responsible and sensitive to their needs.

Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

It was one of my first weddings in Argentina. I was lucky that the bride, Paula, trusted me to be her photographer without seeing too much of my work. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful couple. The party was amazing and the guests made me feel like I was one of them :)

How did you get into wedding photography?

I enjoyed watching the photographer in my wedding work. After that, he let me join him for some weddings so I could try, and here I am today.

Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?

I can’t really tell. It was very hard at the beginning. I had to struggle a lot to get my first couples, but then it got easier as more and more people got familiar with my work and showed interest in it. I make mistakes all the time. I can’t really think about any specific one, but I’m pretty sure I’ll make a lot more…

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

I think that first of all, they should know what style of photography they’re looking for. Classic photography, candid photography, documentary and so on.

After that they should choose a photographer they like and get to know him. I think that it’s fundamental that the couple and the photographer know each other well.

Trust is the first and most important thing to get good and genuine photos. I also think that the couple should understand that they won’t get exactly the same photos they see on a photographer’s web site from a specific wedding. They’ll get something that will represent their own special wedding, but it won’t be exactly as the one that made them choose certain photographer. Each wedding is unique and each coverage has it’s special something.

How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?

What works best is mouth to ear. After that I guess that positioning yourself well in search engines, and finally online advertising such as Google ads.

Why do you think people hire you?

I hope that it’s because my photos reach them and touch their hearts.

How many weddings do you average per year?

Whose wedding would you love to shoot?

Mmm… tough question. I never thought about it.

If you were asked to shoot a destination wedding, where would you hope it would be?

I don’t know. The options are infinite. I guess that somewhere snowy :)

What equipment do you have for a typical wedding day?

Two camera bodies, 35mm and 85mm lenses, both 1.4, one backup lens that cover more or less these focal lengths, two flashes etc…

Ariel Novak image 13

What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.

To be able to maintain a certain level week in and week out. To be able to satisfy each and every couple.

If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?

Do you have any goals for the future photography related or otherwise?

I would’ve liked to travel more for work. Have more weddings abroad.

What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?

I think you should be sensitive to what couples look for and understand what people want to see. You should understand which moments are the one’s people pay you to capture. That’s aside of the obvious things such as understanding light, knowing your equipment etc…

Are there any other wedding photographers whose work inspires you, can be a well know photographer or somebody you've stumbled across?

I don’t really like to see other wedding photographers work. I like to keep an open mind. I don’t want to be affected by anyone.

Proudest moment so far. Photography related or otherwise?

Uff… another tough choice. I try to keep my personal life to myself, so I’ll pick one from work. I guess it was when the first couple hired me for the quality of my work and not for the low prices I had to charge at the beginning.
