About Salava Photography
We are Jan & Rochelle, a team of two AIPP accredited photographers with two completely different styles of photography who work well together to capture & tell the story of your special occasion.
(Btw. we are also engaged so, if you are getting married, we know how excited you feel right now!)
Jan is a former newspaper editor from the Czech Republic (now in charge of putting this text together) and when it comes to your photoshoot, he is a naturally calming element with a fly on the wall approach to photography.
Rochelle, on the other hand, is the conductor of the shoot with a strong Pit Bull mentality (hopefully she won't read this), fighting constantly for the best outcome for her clients. She is the one at weddings who will tackle iPhones, Uncle Bob's camera and Aunty Mary's iPad to ensure she captures your first kiss. Rochelle will not hesitate to ask the celebrant to "kiss" "one more time" if the shot has been missed due to such occupational hazards.

Who is an Accredited Professional Photographer?
|"An Accredited Professional Photographer is a photographer, who doesn't just claim to be a "professional" but earns that title by successfully completing the rigorous AIPP accreditation process."|

Trust me, when I am saying that she is passionate for the best outcome, I mean it.
Rochelle studied photography at University and will guide you through every detail, explaining what, when, how and why a photograph should be taken in this or that light. Well, you don't need to listen to everything she is saying, just remember, she has the best intention with your wedding day in her heart.
Rochelle and her partner Jan were so amazing for my wedding day. Very professional, flexible and more than anything personable! They made our day even more special and got photos of everything we asked for and more! I’m very impressed with how the photos turned out. 10/10 would recommend 💕🥰

Rochelle is an extroverted, bubbly person who was born into the world of photography with a camera in hand - her father was a photographer and Rochelle's first early childhood memories are connected with helping her father develop black 'n' white negatives.
Jan is an introverted, easy-going photographer, who loves authentic, candid moments. He will photograph you without you realising you even are being photographed. Jan developed his sense for good photography probably in his editorial role in newspapers, or is it just a natural gift he has been born with...?
