Alicante wedding photographer with a Mediterranean vibe and natural approach

Heeello! Seems like you’re looking for a Alicante wedding photographer. Is it? Hehe… Well, you found two in the same place!

We are David and Carla and we are wedding photographers in Alicante. You might know it already, but we are here to confirm that you picked one of the most beautiful places in the world to get married.

(Amazing couple, right? She’s from Paris and he’s from Canada. They got married in one of the most beautiful venues in Alicante: Casa Santonja)

Yeah, David was raised in Altea, Alicante so it might be a bit biased (according to him is the most beautiful town in the world, with all it’s lovely Mediterranean cobbled streets, it’s sunsets and sunrises, the white walls, the old town, the sea…), but he’s not that wrong to be honest. He knows all the surroundings very much and it’s true that Alicante (the whole area) is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

We have it all: the perfect weather, amazing food, more than 300 days a year of sun, friendly people, music and the very well known Mediterranean vibe. We don’t mean to sound cocky, just pointing out some of our strengths

So, considering these qualities, it’s obvious why destination weddings in Alicante are really a thing right now. In fact we’re specialized in those weddings. Lovely couples that come from all around the globe to celebrate their special day in front (or very close) to the Mediterranean sea.

So far we have photographed couples from Canada, United States, France, Germany, England, Ireland, Italy, Holland… As you can see all of them come from far far away, and even though the long trip. And we would love to photograph you too!

In fact, let us show you what we do, how we do it, and what our lovely destination couples have said about us.

What our lovely couples say about us

"We met David & Carla thanks to Google Maps. We used to live in Valencia, in the very same neighbourhood they were also living and at that time we started planning our wedding. When we found them, and discovered their website, we immediately fell in love with their style! We loved their long and funny texts, we loved the fact that they share so many stories and anecdotes about themselves and about the newly-weds they photograph, we loved their spontaneous pictures, we loved the fact that they are 2 and that they are a lovely couple. What makes these photographers so special is that we loved them as well as we loved the style of their pictures!
David has a perfect level in English and Carla understands it very well too. It was a bonus for us as we are French and we feel more comfortable in English than Spanish.
We met them in person in Valencia before our wedding that took place in Paris (France). They flew over-there just for us (and they can go anywhere!!) and we are sooo happy with the pictures (just have a look at them! We’re pretty sure you’ll find them awesome!). We were (and we’re still) amazed!
During the wedding, they were so discreet that we almost haven’t notice their presence. But they were everywhere!! And they haven’t missed a single key moment! We highly appreciated this aspect. Thanks to their “photographer’s eye”, we discovered lot of details we missed the D-Day (as we were focused on other things, you know, time flies when you are the bride and groom), and it moved us. We are sure we wouldn’t have been able to find better photographers. They exceeded our expectations! If you’re still hesitating, just go grab a cup of coffee with them. They are accessible, very easygoing (but still always professional) and so kind, they will make sure to answer all questions you have."

"I can't speak positively enough about David and Carla - what a pair! From the moment I reached out on Instagram, they were so responsive, friendly and kind. And, full of ideas! Our wedding was postponed twice due to the pandemic and they were in-touch with me throughout. It was so great to finally meet them in October and they were just fantastic. We have so many amazing pictures to remember our day!"

"(Translated from Spanish) Absolutely recommended. Our wedding was on October 2nd, 2021. Without a doubt they are the best professional photographers to capture the best day of your lives. We must remark the spontaneity of their pictures, the use of lighting and the quality of their photographs. They made us feel comfortable at all time, which made it much easier since the first picture in our intimate session photo shoot until the last one of our "W" (wedding) day. David and Carla you're amazing!!"

  "We are beyond satisfied of our wedding experience with David, Carla and d'Althea photography! Our number one request was that all pictures would feel natural, that the people at the wedding would not feel pressured under the lens and that the overall mood had to be easy-going. Those request were met! Not only did they make us feel comfortable but they were so cool and friendly. Both of them always smile and no mather the organizational changes they adapted swiflty and efficiently. They listened to our photo concepts and needs and applied our request in their shooting. We received the pictures rapidly both physically and digitally. They also sent us special attentions like drawn portraits, suggestions of music to listen to while looking at the pictures and tea to drink while discovering the pictures. We highly recommend these two professional photographers because they made our wedding experience that much better. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts. Olivia and Maxim"

  "We hired David & Carla as our photographer & videographer for our wedding day on 13th October 2019. As an English couple wanting their wedding in Spain, we were concerned there would be a language barrier & cultural issue when choosing a photographer. Because of our concerns we asked to meet David & Carla a year ahead of the wedding to see if we got on with them well and speak to them about what we wanted for our day. David spoke perfect English and they were both so lovely and friendly. We knew we had to have them for our wedding. I think David & Carla were one of the best things we could have done for our wedding. On the wedding day they literally did not stop all day, videoing & taking photos & they were so natural & they came up with so many different & amazing ideas, they just blended in with our day completely. Nothing was too big or too small for them, we asked them to provide us with at least 200 photos for us for our wedding party back in England the week after & they managed it within 4 days after the wedding & they even managed to do us a short trailer of our wedding video which was above and beyond what we expected. Everyone from the party commented on how beautiful the photos were and how natural they look. When we received the whole run of photos and the long video, they arrived in a tote bag with our initials hand sewn on & a box with a few photos printed off, a painting of one of our photos, tea, magnets with our star signs on & a memory stick with a lovely instruction note tied to it, everything was handmade and such a perfect last little touch. They had captured every moment and every last detail of the whole day. The photos & video are completely natural. We are so happy & pleased with how our photos & video have turned out. We will look back on our wedding day with the most amazing memories through the video & photos they have taken. Thank you so much David & Carla for capturing our day. From your friends in England, Mr & Mrs Renshaw xx"

  " (Translated from Spanish) David and Carla are simply wonderful, great professionals. With their photographs we now have precious memories from our wedding and moments captured with great naturalness and care. Nothing was forced. And that's not all: they are great people who spread sympathy and humility. We are very shy in front of a camera but with them it was as if there was no camera. We are infinitely grateful and happy to have found them for our day. The result was a 10/10 from beginning to end. We would trust them again with our eyes closed. They are totally recommended."

Again: not trying to sound cocky, but we love what our couples say about us. Not because it’s good for us, but because we did good to them. To read all those amazing things they say about our services (and specifically about us) really melt our hearts.

Some of them are in English and some of them are in Spanish, so we try to translate them as true to their reality as we can using the same tone and relatable words, but in case we are mistaken you can see their original reviews in our Google My Business page.

That’s what we aim for, to make that kind of impression. We know how hard you worked to organize your wedding. Specially being abroad! And we do our best to help you in any way we can. Not only photography related, but anything we can help you with.

(Yeah, another amazing couple. Both from England and getting married right in front of the Mediterranean sea in Casa Marina Suites)

We know cultural differences and language can be a barrier, but since David speaks English perfectly, and the fact that he grew up in Altea, Alicante (one of the most multicultural places in Spain, in fact there were more than 60 nationalities in his middle school), and -aside of a degree in Artistic Photography- he also has a degree in Tourism, so being a Alicante wedding photographer to capture lovely abroad couples celebrating their destination wedding felt just right.

For us wedding photography is an adventure and something unique. Not only because it’s our job, but because we are a couple who met in 2015 in the Superior School of Arts and Design of Valencia and since then started dating first, then living together, and then starting our own wedding photography business.

This is about you guys, and your desire to celebrate something unique and extremely personal. Something that follows no protocol because there shouldn’t be any protocol to life, and your wedding is part of your life

Carla is also a painter and illustrator. She attended the Fine Arts university in Altea, Alicante (even though we met in Valencia, we both were living in Altea without knowing each other). She’s the one who makes the final touches like hand drawing your packagings or drawing an illustration of you two in your amazing day.

The way we work can be sum up in these three simple concepts:

CANDID

You won’t have to force a smile since you will not be required to pose in your pictures. You are only required to live and enjoy your wedding day to the fullest. The pictures will look more real and you’ll be focused in what you have to do: enjoy you wedding day at a 100% and be with your people!

SPONTANEOUS

Like life itself, and hence the day your living. You won’t notice us taking photographs so your pictures will show you exactly as you were living your wedding, with it’s tears, smiles, hugs, and general emotion, but also your family, friends, the decoration, the beautiful place, etc… Everything will be in your reportage :)

NATURAL

That’s what your pictures will look like: natural. You’ll be having a great time celebrating surrounded by your people, enjoying the warm country in a wonderful wedding, and meanwhile we’ll be taking lots of pictures so you’ll be able to revisit everything whenever you want to.

We love to capture those special moments that happen right before our noses in an incredible and magical day. That’s what it’s happening and that’s what we are photographing.

But before finish… We haven’t shown you enough pictures yet! Let’s fix that with some examples of our wedding photography work. Some of them were done as a Alicante wedding photographers, like in Moraira, in Benissa, Javea, Altea or Beniarbeig, but we have also done some work all around Spain.

Those were only some starting points to understand more about our wedding photography vision, but of course there’s more!

Now it’s your turn. Let’s get to know each other.
