I’m Samo Rovan, an international destination wedding photographer based in beautiful little country Slovenia in the heart of Europe. Also a speaker and mentor of photography worldwide. An ex photojournalist, been working for several major newspapers in my country. An architect, active in the field of photography, architecture and design. I’m happy to share my life with Romana, the muse of my life, and two lovely kids.
In 2009 I became Slovenian photographer of the year (by EMZIN) with ‘Wedding guests’ series. For my wedding photography work I had received numerous awards by international wedding photography associations, of which I am a member. In 2011 I became TOP 10 Fearless Photographer and in 2013 TOP 10 WPJA Wedding Photojournalist. I was also nominated for The Top 10 Wedding Photographers of 2013 by the American Photo Magazine.
I’m a documentary storyteller, renown for my passionate, fun, fresh, direct, but also emotional, sincere and warm wedding photojournalistic style. On the other hand I enjoy hunting unusual and humorous situations on my own way. Complex compositions are my specialty. The purpose of my photography is to capture the genuine feelings that the bride, groom and their guests experience at a wedding. I open the window back to the wedding day, so they can again smell the bouquet, touch the wedding dress,…
Beside weddings I photograph also:
- prewedding/engagement sessions,
- after wedding day sessions/’Trash the Dress’,
- family sessions,
- newborns and kids,
- everything else connected with people and life.
I’m available worldwide.
