WHO ARE WE?
Hi! I am Arnej, the guy behind Šećerlama. I started the whole idea 2 years ago with passion and devotion to bringing wedding memories to life. I am the only photographer in Šećerlama, and I also do all the directing for the wedding films, so you can rest assured that you are getting a coherent package with the same idea going behind the whole concept. We are a team of 3, together with me are Amer and Malik, it is hard to have a big and glorious description of us when we are just 3 ordinary guys. We love what we do, and what we do never feels like a job to us. Finding those sincere and honest moments during your wedding and being able to get a glimpse of your emotions is what fuels us. We try to elevate our work with every wedding, we try to do better every time. Focusing on our own work and not what is trending in the world.
We will never let your most important day be any less important to the three of us
How we work?
We will never let your most important day be any less important to the three of us. We are in the service of your biggest day, not the other way around, so we will never interfere with the wedding, or change your plans. That day is about you, and your guests who you know and love. Moving around unobtrusively helps us catch those sincere moments, and also makes the whole day just about you, not us. All three of us are kind of tech geeks, so we use the most technologicaly advanced equipment. We draw similar influences from different forms of art, and that helps us deliver a package of film and video that is coherent. We make the films and photos in a way that is pleasing to our own eyes, that is why we enjoy doing this so much. We try not to be caught up in chasing trends and mimicking other people, but we are greatly influenced by good art, from music, films, photography, books.
“Even though we are not really fans of posing the photosession with Arnej was a really fun and unforgettable experience. Arnej litteraly immersed himself into our world and recorded the start of our marriage UNDERWATER! Literally. I would warmheartedly recommend Arnej and Šećerlama|Weddings as a photographer who will make amazing professional photos of your wedding and all that in a way that feels like being photographed by a longtime friend.”- Nataša & Sanjin -11th September, 2016
“An interesting story, we met our friend Arnej on the same day we met our photographer Arnej. We had a beautiful wedding in Dubrovnik, and it actually hit us that Arnej is our photographer, and not just one of our dear guests, only when we received a series of fantastic photos. Arnej’s lens caught event those moments and emotions we were not aware of until we saw them on his photos. A friend, and yet still so professional, spontaneous and unconventional, utterly reliable and punctual. We are not surprised at all that he is one of the most sought after photographers. We wish you a lot of luck and success in the future.”- Nejra & Denis -2nd April, 2016
“A wedding is the most important and happiest day in the life of two people in love. This particular day is full with emotions and things worth remembering. To capture all those emotions and situations is a very hard and difficult job. Of course, that day is full of chaos and you can’t be sure that everything will be alright. In our case, Šećerlama|Weddings took one worry away. The shooting was great and the result was even better. We are thankful that we can enjoy our wedding photos every time we look at them and feel again the same emotions. I can only say that Šećerlama|Weddings has beaten all of our expectations.”- Ajla & Emir -27th August, 2016
