Helga Schaefer is passionate about being a Mallorca, Spain-based destination wedding and lifestyle photographer, and she’s been capturing treasured family moments in film for her entire life.
She’s obsessed with wedding photo composition, on-location wedding shoots, and using natural light to flatter her subjects and brides to the best advantage. She always asks:
- what should captured in the image?
- where were the best natural light sources?
- what should be at the center of the frame?
- what could be omitted?
Mallorca, Spain Wedding Photographer Helga Schaefer
“The special relationship I form with the couples and families who hire me is one of my most valued benefits of this work,” says Schaefer. Her on-location destination wedding bridal photography, family photography, engagement photography and wedding photography business is based in the magical town of Mallorca, Spain. There, she provides on-location wedding photography services for happy couples and families who arrive from across the world to enjoy the sunshine and natural beauty of Mallorca’s beaches, cathedrals, and wedding venues. “I appreciate how light brings beauty and an ethereal quality to the weddings I shoot, and to my subjects. My happiest moment is hearing from a new bride after she’s seen her proofs for the first time: the feelings of joy and elation at re-living the intimate moments with her groom and the rest of her wedding party on her wedding day. If I take her breath away, I count myself successful.”
Her organic, photojournalistic style of photography takes advantage of the natural light, organic locations, and fresh air available in Mallorca, Spain. Brides and families the world over are choosing Mallorca, Spain for their destination weddings and it’s no wonder: there is so much natural beauty on the magical island of Mallorca. Schaefer knows the ins and outs of the local area and how to photograph it best. She guides couples to hidden coves and beaches where she’s able to create one-of-a-kind images. She’s also partnered with most of the excellent wedding vendors on the island and delights in giving value-added advice to help make these families’ destination weddings to Mallorca, Spain incredible in every way.
