Whether you’re planning an elaborate multicultural fete at a historic manor or an intimate soiree overlooking the mountains, every iconic celebration deserves bespoke imagery as one-of-a-kind as you are
BEHIND THE LENS
Director, curator, documentarian, photographer, storyteller. Inspired by history, culture, and the stories that connect us.
My family immigrated to the United States as refugees, leaving their lives behind in search of a brighter future. With all their worldly belongings contained in the suitcases they carried, the scant photographs that crossed the ocean have served as a lifeline to stories untold, allowing me to piece together my family legacy, one image at a time. Decades later, I discovered photography as a medium to document my travels (37 countries and counting!) and encapsulate the joy and happiness that each new adventure brings.
Through my lens, my purpose is to transport all of your senses back to a moment in time as you write your family’s history. You will smell the gentle perfume of your florals at your candle-lit reception, hear the belly-aching laughter that accompanied each speech, and grow misty-eyed as you relive your first look.
Photographs tell a story and capture not only how you look at a given point in time, but who you are. I apply this philosophy to the people I photograph, with the knowledge that these photographs are an enduring legacy that will be passed down for generations.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
— Ansel Adams
You know that the real magic of a wedding day lies in the spaces between: through shared glances, simple gestures, and fleeting moments. Your wedding will be inspired by your impeccable style and taste, but above all, will celebrate your extraordinary love story. From bespoke portraiture, candid storytelling, jaw dropping details, show stopping composition, and every magazine-worthy moment in between, you want it all when it comes to your wedding photos, and can’t wait to revel in every moment.
but you're equally at home with a glass of wine playing board games and snuggling by the fire.
Winnie Dora Photography is committed to fully celebrating the love and cultural traditions of every client, employee, and vendor partner, regardless of race, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ability, or country of origin. As an industry dedicated to love, I believe that there is no space for hate or bigotry in the wedding industry and beyond, and that ALL love deserves to be celebrated.
