Today we have the pleasure of interviewing Mallorcan wedding photographer Aimee from Aimee K Photography. Her candid documentary style wedding photography is a huge hit for bridal couples looking for a relaxed portfolio of wedding images. As you can see in these images, she perfectly encapsulates the romance and chilled, rustic quality of weddings in Mallorca.
Here’s what Aimee had to say about the love for her craft, working with couples in Mallorca and her ideal wedding!
You are 100% spot-on – capturing natural moments is my goal and what I consider the greatest achievement in wedding photography! After years of being involved in the inspiring community of wedding photographers I’ve come to believe that photography is a reflection of a photographer’s experience. Not to get too existential but basically to say that photos largely mirror the photographer’s point of view. A photographer who is joyful and natural will be more inclined to perceive those joyful and natural moments, while a photographer who relates to the world in a more serious and constructed manner will interact and capture those photos that reflect a more serious nature.
Connection with the bride and groom and their closest family is so important to build trust and access intimate moments. During a wedding I can be seen buzzing around in a light-on-my feet and transparent way yet I’m friendly, approachable and professional. Although it may sound like a huge task, in reality the approach is light and playful.
Mallorca was quite unexpected for me! I’m originally American and worked in Labour and Delivery (Maternity Unit) for years. I’ve also lived in Hong Kong where I owned a children’s modelling agency. I met my husband during a working ‘holiday’ in Bodhgaya, India, where I was providing healthcare to Buddhist monks, nuns, children and lay people. My husband was the German paediatric doctor on the island. One year after meeting we moved to Mallorca together. I’m so thankful not only found my husband and also discovered this amazing island.
Having travelled the globe, and spent time as a model myself, has really helped me perfect my photography. I love my job and having Mallorca as an amazing backdrop is icing on the cake!
What I love about shooting weddings in Mallorca is the rustic elegance of the finca venues. Mallorcan venues are about the countryside setting – think olive trees, blue sky, sheep bells, windmills, lush flowers and a lot of green (my favourite colour!). Think of a “sobremesa” – a lingering Spanish lunch outdoors in the sun amongst family, friends, laughter, music, full-bodied wine and a variety of tapas. Those are the underpinnings of the photographic backdrop!
An ideal wedding to photograph for me is one where people are authentic, well-connected and really live the moment to the fullest! This is possible in an intimate wedding with a small budget, just as much as a huge wedding. What I can capture photographically is what people are willing to show me and what they feel comfortable to express. In that way the ideal wedding is one in where clients fully trust me and feel confident enough to express themselves during what is one of the most important days of their lives.
