Damien Milan

We love to capture stories in a way that is intoxicatingly honest and raw and can’t wait to be a part of your journey. I am Damien, a dreamer and nomad at heart. I never really planned to become a wedding photographer but documenting the beautiful complexity between people, emotions, places and cultures got me hooked. I crossed paths with Nastia in 2008 and we quickly became inseparable as partners in life and wanderers exploring the world and documenting weddings together. Our style can be described as raw, cinematic, emotive and timeless. Whilst I dream up scenes inspired by some of my favourite films, Nastia’s attention is often focused on smaller details like the flowers in your hair or the texture of your veil. Both our styles complement each other to build a rich story in a cinematic way. Light is the core of our work and we are always up for experimenting with it in an intentional and artful way. Our love for travel reportage means we won’t be arranging you into awkward poses, as we much prefer to capture all the brave and honest moments. When you look back through the photographs of your wedding day we want you to relive it through the details and often overlooked or quiet moments that made it so special. We photograph weddings because we love to share this amazing day with couples and their tribe so if you connect with our work and would like to welcome us into your world for a day or so, we would love to hear from you! Damien & Nastia
