Hello! My name is Rolfs Vendins, I am a professional wedding photographer, husband and father of three charming sons. I live in Riga, from time to time I am in Aluksne and Dobele, and if there is a need, I will arrive in any other city of Latvia.


How much does wedding photography cost? Weddings tend to be very different. To make correct calculations, I need to know the main elements:
- the wedding date;
- how many hours of photography you need;
- the location of the preparation, the ceremony and the banquet;
- the number of wedding guests.

What is your style of photography? How do you differ from other wedding photographers? I make documentary photographs (so called photojournalism). It offers more honest moments, emotions and as little posing as possible.

What is the end-product that we will receive? 500 to 800 processed photos in JPEG format and a wedding slide show with music in MP4 format, put either on a USB Flash Drive or uploaded to file share site on the internet.

How long does the wedding photo processing take? Usually I include 1-month term in the agreement, but the practice shows that most of the couples receive their photos in 2-3 weeks!

Do you photograph wedding photoshoots? Of course! At every wedding I have photographed, there was also a wedding photoshoot. When publishing wedding stories on my site, I give wedding photoshoot certain place. For example, if photographing the whole wedding celebration lasted 14 hours and a photoshoot, in particular, 30-60 minutes, then it's logical that photoshoot take about 1/14 of the entire wedding story, and not vice versa. Don´t worry if you are not photomodels and don´t know how to pose! According to the wedding day plan, I find the most beautiful places for the photoshoot and show the couple how to pose.

How do we reserve the date? To make a reservation, you have to sign an agreement and make an advance payment, which usually amounts to EUR 100.

Where can we see the agreement terms and conditions? You can find the agreement here.

Can you communicate in Latvian, Russian, as well as English? I know Latvian and Russian the best! I speak English well enough to do my job.
