Our camera allows as to create visual storytelling, to document the people’s story of a wedding day, with an extreme passion for composing every frame, uniqueness, different and expanding our style with every single wedding we shoot.

We aim to create peoples wedding day into storytelling images, with a feeling how it was to tell the story for generations to come. Being in the wedding industry more than 12 years, do way over 350 weddings locally and also internationally, we have run into thousands and one problem and along the way and teach us hot to solve it.

"The most important part when we create visual storytelling,is to feel how it was"A.Kus2018

People who know us; our beloved families, our brilliant clients, our excellent friends all that know that whatever we do, we do on the highest possible level and that’s the reason why this advance wedding photography workshop will be something extraordinary. We need to admit that there is no more secrets in this industry, those days. Every piece of knowledge is available to us somewhere, but somehow not everyone is the same because we use that experience in entirely different ways.

We design advanced visual storytelling workshop to cover all the essential topics which are necessary to raise up your photography awareness, grown your business and focus on the things which are truly important when you are creating visual wedding story. We genuinely believe in few facts, which had the most significant impact on all our business and life; Creative visual storytelling, Connecting to people, and Personal approach. We can’t wait to share why this is so important to us – and our couples.
 That was the reason we make our advanced creative visual storytelling workshops as actionable information as possible with things that you can apply to your photography/business and life, as soon as you get home after this advanced visual storytelling workshop. So you could become excellent photographer and better person, no matter if you are a several years professional photographer or just starting out, there is always some new perspective to look from and learn new things along the way.

"Images to me are like music, and if we compose them creatively,they will awake all the human emotions! "A.Kus2017⠀

When we start thinking about the workshop, there was one fundamental question. For how many attendees we would like to organize a workshop. After we put on a paper our program for advanced visual storytelling workshop, the problem was answered by himself. Because we want to open our minds fully and give everything we decide to do a workshop to max 5 (five) attendees. Or just one! Doing this way we could do advanced visual storytelling workshop with a personal approach.

Three full days of learning! I need to admit that this advanced visual storytelling workshop idea was waiting a long time in my mind. Let me explain why. I love educated myself, and my opinion is that if we continuously raise our awareness we becoming a better people in life, we raise our work to the higher level! I wish the same for all of you, that’s why we decide to do full three days advanced visual storytelling workshop.

We will start with the basic theory because this is the most crucial for everything, later on. Then lead you through the entire day of a wedding with all explain how we photograph in each situation to get the best out of it and why creative storytelling is the most important thing. The advanced visual storytelling workshop is aimed at photographers who already have some experience in wedding photography and want to expand their photography/business, but also to newcomers in the wedding photography world who wish to establish their photography/business and life.

"For me creativity is passion, it's driving me to be uniquewith every single frame I compose! "A.Kus2017

So what will be covered? The few key things which are extremely important when we are creating wedding story, and we will spend the most time on that.

CREATIVE STORYTELLING! “Because creativity is the intelligence of having fun.” I love that quotes from great scientist Albert Einstein. Whit creativity we can achieve our most important goal to convert peoples wedding day into images, which make them feel something and tell a story for generations to come. That’s what it’s all about for me.

MOMENTS! Because we are not wedding photographers, we are a unique visual artist who captures moments and connections between peoples on their most important day! Moments are priceless nonrepeatable series of events, uniques to be different which allowed you to stand out from the crowd!

LIGHT! Because without light there is darkness and we do not want that! It’s not our style! Light drive us to see the image with our emotions, not eyes!

COMPOSITION!  When we create a visual legacy, photo composition is essential as same as light and moments, for our image without strong composition/structure is like a snapshot, incomplete blank canvas.

Along the way we will lead you to all another critical aspect;
