Wedding Photographer Mallorca Jonas Beckmann shoots a wedding at Cala Brafi, Mallorca, Spain
Real weddings from real wedding photographers & real couples around the world.
Tell us a little about yourself??Iâ€™m Jonas, a very young German wedding photographer, currently 19 years old.
How do you think or would like people to describe you?Probably contained, open-minded, perfectionist, pleasant
Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?What I really liked about Kirsten and Paul's wedding is that there was such a familiar atmosphere as they celebrated their wedding just with their family and closest friends. They had their marriage ceremony at the finca, where they got ready, with a stunning view on the ocean. It was really lovely as well as the following reception. Finally, the next day we did a little portrait session in the beautiful evening light.
How did you get into wedding photography?I started getting interested in photography in about 2011, first concentrating on taking pictures of our nature. Gradually, I got interested in taking pictures of people and when I photographed my first wedding, I finally fell in love with wedding photography - yes, love at first sight does exist ;)
How long have you been a wedding photographer?I photographed my first wedding in 2012 and started my business in the beginning of 2013.
Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?I think in the first place it was important to build up my portfolio and develop my own style - I always kept being myself and never pretended. I donâ€™t think I did any severe mistakes yet.
What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?They should go for a photographer they feel comfortable talking with and they should feel good having him as a guest at their wedding. Of course, photographic style is important as well.
How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?Just on the internet, with my website and in several social networks and photography communities.
Why do you think people hire you?They like my photography and come along with me.
How many weddings do you average per year?-
Whose wedding would you love to shoot?Their is actually no specific person whose wedding I would like to shoot, but rather a location. I would give my right arm to shoot a wedding in such a desolate Icelandic church :)
If you were asked to shoot a destination wedding, where would you hope it would be?As mentioned Iceland would be awesome, but I would love to shoot destination weddings in every exciting place! I just love traveling as much as I love shooting weddings, so I LOVE destination weddings ;)
What equipment do you have for a typical wedding day?Iâ€™ve got two full frame Canon-Bodies and mainly super-fast prime lenses as well as further stuff, such as flashes or sun-reflectors
What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.
Do you have an approach to a wedding?-
Who or what inspires you?I'm inspired by each couple again and again as well as by their locations and surroundings.
Best & Worst marketing idea so far?The best one was probably SEO.
If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?-
Share your favourite image of the day and why?I really love this landscape with the ocean and the rocks. The ruin they are standing in adds an anthropogenic item to this natural scene. The lovely evening light completes it. Itâ€™s actually even one of my all-time favourites.
Do you have any goals for the future photography related or otherwise?No specific ones, I just want to keep doing what Iâ€™m doing ;)
What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?I think itâ€™s important to develop your own style and to be always willing to learn.
Are there any other wedding photographers whose work inspires you, can be a well know photographer or somebody you've stumbled across?There are so many awesome wedding photographers out there who inspire me, I could list just so many names!
Proudest moment so far. Photography related or otherwise?-
