Damien, the founder of Damien Milan Studio, is a Belgian-born dreamer addicted to capturing real moments and chasing beautiful lights. He is a nomad at heart so he loves to take brave couples on adventures off the beaten track where they have space to be themselves.
He once crossed paths with a fellow lounge-room dancer and flower whisperer Anastasia, in 2008. They soon became inseparable as partners in life and wanderers exploring the world and documenting weddings together. While Damien is dreaming up scenes inspired by some of his favourite films, Anastasia’s attention is often focused on smaller details like the flowers in your hair or the texture of your veil. Their styles are different but complement each other to build a rich story.
Light is the core of Damien Milan’s work and they are always up for experimenting with it to create unique images. Their love for travel reportage means they won’t be arranging you into awkward poses but they will be capturing honest moments with a strong sense of place. When you look back through the photographs of your wedding day they want you to remember it exactly as it was through all the raw details that made it so special.
They photograph weddings because they love to share this amazing day with couples so if you connect with their work and would like to welcome them into your world for a day or so, they would love to meet you for a tea at their place in Newtown.
