Le sigh. One look at the work of Veronica Varos and I'm instantly overtaken by romance. I find myself swooning and filled with butterflies. It's as if her creativity is limitless. The layering, the angles, and the composition of her photos is quite unique. But more than that, there is something crazy special about the way she captures unexpected or unplanned moments. It's almost as if she's a chameleon, blending right into the background. The bride and groom and others go about their business, not noticing her, not posing or changing their actions, just simply being themselves, making for some of the most real, most genuine, most strikingly beautiful images I've ever seen.
While her work on Jessica and Brian's wedding was featured right here last month, I'm not the only one who thinks Veronica is insanely talented. Her work has been featured on Brides, Ruffled Blog, Style Me Pretty, and The Today Show, not once, not twice, but three times! She also just landed the cover of the latest Whirl Wedding Guide. See what all the (totally deserved) fuss is about!
What type of services do you provide?
Wedding, engagement, and boudoir photography
Tell me a little bit about your company! How long have you been in business? Is this your full time gig or a part time passion? What makes your service(s) unique? Why should brides and grooms hire you?
I’m a full time wedding photographer who specializes in creative documentary work. Prior to weddings, I was exclusively a concert photographer but made the switch to weddings in 2008. I take pride in the fact that I'm not a cookie-cutter wedding photographer; I'm not a traditional photographer. My goal is to be a fly on the wall at each wedding I photograph. I prefer to photograph things as they happy naturally, rather than posing or staging moments. I absolutely love receiving emails after the fact, saying things like, “I don't even remember you being there for that!”
What is your ideal client like?
My ideal (and luckily – my usual!) client has a strong appreciation for the arts, any type – whether it’s music, poetry, illustration, or photography. They are looking for something different, something naturally beautiful. They don’t want to be told what to do, don’t follow traditions. Their focus is on friends and family and the love surrounding them on their wedding day. And as a bonus – they love nature and the outdoors just as much as I do. They want to be photographed as they truly are, in the beauty that surrounds us.
