Some of my wedding packages include a Wedding Book. The design of my products is related to the look of my website and my editing style, which have black and white photos and photos with natural, soft colors with realistic skin tones. Minimalism, elegance, and a nude color palette are the main features of my products.
Wedding Books are in two sizes, 30 x 30 cm and 20 x 15 cm, with Fine Art paper and personalized 3D name prints. A large book has 80 pages (up to 200 photos), and a small 40 pages (up to 70 photos). It's available in two designs, Soft touch eco leather in espresso black and white pepper colors. All products and printed materials are created in Fravero studio in Zagreb.
WHAT ARE YOU SHOOTING THE MOST ON THE WEDDING DAY?
When I take photos, I am focused on the atmosphere of the day and the spontaneous moments with natural light and shadows. I like to photograph the details because they connect the parts of your wedding. My favorite part of the wedding is the ceremony and session. The ceremony is the main part because emotions come to the top, and the session is your intimate moment of the day that you can rarely repeat. The vibe of your session on a wedding day cannot be compared to a session a few days before. Try to find at least half an hour for yourself. I photograph wedding parties with a flash, sometimes without it, to achieve cinematic moments. Long exposures are also something I like to practice. Any guest at a wedding who wants a portrait photo can freely ask me, and I will always take it.
Can we see the whole private online gallery from the PREVIOUS newlyweds ?
I have a lot of content and photos on my social networks and website. Because of the GDPR, I have to respect the privacy of the couple's gallery password. Some clients don't want all the photos to be public. On my website in the "BLOG" section, I have some full-day weddings that I photographed in Croatia and throughout Europe, and these are photos approved by the couples. All my images show all parts of the wedding. Details, getting ready moments, the portraits, ceremony, party, and the wedding sessions. If you want me to be your photographer, all the content I showed will be enough to make your final decision.
Can we combine offers?
The price guide is fixed and cannot be adjusted or combined. My previous clients have shown that such composed packages offer everything the client needs through the last seven years of work. If the packages adapt to each couple, the offer loses its significance.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Some of my packages include a second photographer, but in most cases, I work alone. If you are expecting more guests or you are in separate locations, I can always arrange another photographer.
CAN COUPLES EXPECT TO PHOTOGRAPH WITH FAMILY AND RELATIVES?
Of course! We always accept it if someone asks the second shooter or me to photograph them during the wedding day. If there is some kind of formal photographing, we do it, too. We don’t publish those kinds of photos on our website and social networks. We cannot know all your most influential people. If someone is not in the images, you cannot tell that it is our fault. I am not a traditional wedding photographer. I am focused on moments, and I only do portrait photos if you want to. I do not invite every guest to be photographed with you.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
If you checked most of my photos and you like my work, it is necessary to fill out the whole form on my website marcijus-studio.com. After filling in all fields, I will send you my offer. If you choose me, I will send a contract necessary to be signed by the client. The deadline for advance payment is seven days after signing the contract. To successfully book your date, you are required to pay 30% of the total amount of the chosen package. Two payment options are bank transfer to my account, written on the contract, or via PayPal.
DO YOUR OFFERS INCLUDE AN EXTRA DAY FOR A WEDDING SESSION?
Each wedding package includes an extra day for the session if the couple does not have the opportunity to do their wedding session on the wedding day. In most cases, it will be a day or two after the wedding, but some couples decide for a few days before. So it will be like a small pre-wedding session.
HOW MUCH TIME DO WE HAVE FOR A DECISION?
After I send you an offer and you don’t have any questions, the deadline for making a decision is ten days. If I don’t hear anything from you in that period, I think the date is free, and you can’t book me anymore. So please, ask everything you want to know or send me the negative answer, everything is better than no answer from you. There is a possibility that more couples ask for the same date. In that case, the first couple who paid the advance booked the date. This info is essential for my organization and the accuracy in communication with other clients, which are also interesting.
Can we get RAW photos?
On the wedding day, I made approx. 3000 -5000 RAW photographs. After the wedding, I make a selection from all of these photographs. I never deliver RAW photos! A number of the edited images we provide to couples depend on the package they choose.
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE OUR PHOTOS AND ALBUMS?
Every wedding I want to devote the maximum. I'm editing every photo, and I don't want to leave something unfinished. Due to wedding season workload and travel arrangements, all printed materials, wedding books, and prints included in the collection for weddings covered from May through October will be delivered no sooner than November of the same year or at the beginning of next year! Photographs delivery is up to 45 business days, and wedding book delivery is up to 8-12 weeks, sometimes more.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR A DESTINATION WEDDING?
Absolutely! I'm a travel enthusiast and love it a lot! For me, it will be just perfect for doing wedding photography abroad. I'm available wherever you want. For me, there are no boundaries. Feel free to invite me anywhere! I'm excited about the new adventures!
WE ARE NOT COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF A CAMERA…
Today, there is a lot of wedding photographers. I understand that it is hard to choose photographers who are ideal for you. Also, I know that people just don’t like to photograph themselves. With me, you will not have those problems. I made everything through spontaneity and laughter, and with that, everything is easy and possible. For a start, I make a few photos to see how everything will work, and no one has ever had a problem with that. In most cases, the newlyweds begin to give their suggestions and ideas what we also appreciate.
WHAT DOES AN ONLINE GALLERY?
As time flies, technology is more and more developing, so I'm working according to that. I don't deliver photographs on the USB stick because you can download all photos from the gallery on your own devices as many times as you want. That is a private gallery that everyone can't see, just couples and me. The newlyweds get a password for the gallery to check photographs, like them, download, or share them away. If you give the password to others, they can do it, too. The online gallery is not visible on my website.
How long has the online gallery been active?
After I send you the gallery with the password, it is active for three months, and after that, the gallery is deleted. That’s enough time for a couple to share a link with guests and download all the photos on several devices.
HOW DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS, AND WHAT IS THE RATIO OF COLOR PHOTOS AND BW PHOTOS?
I select my photos in the Photo Mechanic application and then edit the images in the Lightroom app with my custom preset. The final gallery sent to clients is more with color photos, and the ratio of color photos to BW photos is 65:35
WHAT DO YOU USE FROM THE PHOTO EQUIPMENT ON THE FULL WEDDING DAY?
I use two Nikon Z6 mirrorless bodies and one Nikon D610 DSLR as a backup body. For lenses, I use Sigma's Art series, 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm, with apertures 1.4. The flashes I use during the wedding party are Nikon SB700 and Godox V1N.
CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE WE BOOK?
Absolutely! If you are near our town, I prefer to meet you and go for a coffee or a drink. I love to meet our couples before the wedding, that is how to find out more about you and your big day. Every detail is essential to make your wedding photographs just perfect. If you are not near me, there are always some options. If we already have some wedding or trip to your town or near, I can arrange to come one or two days before to meet with you. Also, you can find me on Skype. My Skype name is Marcijuš Weddings. I'm also available on WhatsApp, and my number is +385996554994

We are just going to sleep after looking at some of the most amazing photos we have ever seen. We have gone through almost every emotion reliving our wedding and the photos were simply exceptional. To say you exceeded our expectations would be an understatement- your photos are simply incredible. The drama, the emotion, the humor, the fun, the madness, and the sheer beauty have left us so happy and grateful. We did not choose a single photo to remove from the guest's list, which again goes to show how much we love them. Thank you so much for your hard work and talent, these photos are the ‘icing on the cake‘ as we say in English. The fact that you got engaged shortly after in London just adds to the story.
Marina & Ivan
Tomislav and Lara won our fascination immediately. So kind, friendly, professional. The first thing I want to mention is that we received our photos just a month after the wedding. We had great expectations because the photographer was a very important part of our wedding. We did our best to find the perfect photographers. But Tomislav and Lara exceeded our expectations. Looking at the photos, you can feel all the emotions of that day. So many captured spontaneous moments, details, smiles, tears, hugs, emotions... A lot of praises and definitely the most sincere recommendations from us to all who want to preserve their most beautiful moments in photos. Better than any movie!
Iva & Mario
“When I saw this couple’s photos for the first time, I was overwhelmed by indescribable and quiet, silent happiness. Finally, someone managed to capture my favorite season – autumn. In their photos, you can smell rain, melancholy, feel the lonely walk through the mist when you know that you will find the beauty and purity of life itself at the end of that road. They are dreamy, mystical, but at the same time very comforting, and they send you the message – everything will be fine! On these photos are recorded invisible strings of love that consumes all – love for yourself, love you can find in nature, the freshness of the autumn morning, the secrecy of autumn nightfall, the sound of whispering trees in the forest, the sound of pure, raw nature, lover’s love, friends! They are skillfully capturing the beauty of everyday life which is if we get close enough, everything but daily and common. This couple crafty records less visible invisible, miraculously in daily, and all that without imposing their own interpretations and banal messages. They are simply offering peace and freedom, so the observer can project his own impressions, interpretations into every photo and find peace and silent happiness of existing!”
ANDREA & MARKO
“I don’t know how many times will I look at these photos before writing anything to you. I’m not sure that I will find enough amazing words to describe this feeling. With the intertwined steps of life, we have met and you left a long-lasting impression and a stamp in our hearts. What you are doing is something very special, unpredictable, and very intimate. While watching every photo and reading every word you wrote to us, I want to keep you jealously for myself. I can’t suspend my feelings, but I also have to say that you are worth millions of this world because you are real and honest people. I love you, my dear T&L. Stay forever what you are because your energy and humanity are different from all others. We will be always grateful for everything you did for us.”
Elizabeta & Matej
We came across the photos of Tomislav and Lara's work for the first time, we knew that it was it. After looking into many wedding photographers we were finally astonished. The Ideas they had were incredible. From beginning to the end everything wants perfectly. Once you make a deal with these wonderful people, everything is in their hands. They made sure they were doing everything in time and exactly the way we imagined it. From the multitude of obligations and loads of stress that the newlyweds are having - Tomislav and Lara and their perfectly good organization are just what everyone needs! Their professional eye captured the entire atmosphere, and from our wedding, they created a fairytale.
