Viiiscaaaa Valèeeeencia, viscaaa, viscaaa. Yeah, you might not know what this is but if I tell you that’s Valencia’s hymn you do. Or don’t you? Well, even if you do or don’t you have decided to get married in Valencia and now is time to find a Valencia wedding photographer, and we’re here for you!
But first, an explanation for our title: there’s no such thing as ‘the best Valencia wedding photographer’ unless you’re thinking in the best wedding photographer for your personality. Let us explain a bit more: the best ‘something’ is not the same for everyone. And wedding photography is no exception. You need to find the best ‘something’ according to the way you both understand life and -therefore- your wedding.
Well, to see if we are the best wedding photographer in Valencia for you let us walk through our philosophy and way we understand life -and therefore weddings-.
We believe a wedding should be an incredible day for a couple to celebrate with all their people having a blast. Is not the time to follow protocols, is not the time to think about anything else that is not enjoying your day. That’s why we don’t like to make our couples pose, which would mean we would have to interrupt them. We want you to cry rivers, to have a bigger smile than Julia Roberts (that’s hard, yeah!), to tear apart both your dress and suit, to jump 5 meters from the ground or whatever. We want you to fully enjoy your day, and we want to capture that energy.
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
Lets be honest here: you might have all came from very far away, with so many people, to follow a strict protocol or to be worried about anything that is not enjoying all you organized for so long.
Random spontaneity is what drives the world, let’s let it do it’s thing and just enjoy a great time to be alive (and of course, having it photographed. Those are the moments worth capturing and sharing haha)
Valencia wedding photographer with a natural and candid approach
All this text so far and we haven’t introduced ourselves yet… Wasn’t that rude?!
We are David and Carla, destination wedding photographers based in Valencia (Spain) doing candid and beautiful wedding photo reportages all over the world.
That means that your wedding might not be exactly in Valencia. It can be in Alicante too, or Altea, Javea, Madrid, Barcelona. Or maybe even in Paris, London, New York, Lisbon, Berlin, Quebec… Wherever! We can be there for you (like Chandler, Monica, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe or Joey) and portrait you in all your joy with all your energy having a blast in your wedding day.
You can know more about us if you want to, but this really is about you. Or about other couples that have worked with us and say this:
Jonathan + Linda
"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!"
Silvia + Juan
"(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!!"
Olivia + Maxim
"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."
