There is a quote I once came across that radiated with echos of sympathy and support for the life of an artist. A great artist works with deep seeded passion, unapologetic to the critics knocking at their door. He or she is willing to master their craft through experiences and courage. That said, many fine art wedding photographers diligently search for workshops that will feed their creative spirit while providing an educational experience. It is a chance to mingle with like-minded artists, network with vendors, and gain insight to techniques used by mentors.
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” – Émile Zola
Vitor Lindo, owner and creative behind a wedding photography and cinematography company located in Savannah had a unique opportunity this year when he was asked to document a behind the scenes perspective at Jeremy Chou Photography‘s workshop. If you don’t know, Savannah hosts some of the most gorgeous sun drenched, historic grounds layered by ferns and blooms galore. Native to the south, Vitor took full advantage of this opportunity and created beautiful bridal inspiration imagery through the use of medium format film. Vitor’s imagery perspective is focused on documenting the smallest details to the widest angles, providing our readers with a storyline. He is able to walk us through the wedding design details put together by Jeremy Chou’s team, taking “pretty” and giving us a “breathtaking” visual. We love how Vitor was intentional in capturing the artistic talent behind every vendor in this collaboration.

Meet Vitor Lindo
I’m a Photographer through and through but most of all, I am a procurer of wonderful things. I’m a unabashed people watcher and I specialize in capturing moments that only exist for a heart beat. I catch those airy moments with pixels and film emulsion, then quickly turn them into ink and paper. I believe that photos are True Magic…. and the camera is my wand.
I have spent the majority of my life traveling the world and I am a gypsy at heart. Most people would describe my style as photo journalistic, which means that I stay out of the way as much as possible, and I let those natural moments of relaxed happiness, tears of joy and uncontrollable laughter shine through. You can definitely expect lots of fun and energy from me and my crew as we are experts at breaking the ice and making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera.

Meet Jeremy Chou
After getting my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona (go Broncos!), I worked in one of the largest architecture firms in the US for almost 10 years. When my life became all about excel spread sheets and meeting minutes, I knew it was time to make a change. Even though I never had any formal training in photography, I decided to buy my first DSLR camera just to give it a try! I started off by taking photos of my daughters, and through trial & error, I started to be OBSESSED with photography. I loved everything about it. The ability to create art and connect with my subjects was fascinating to me. It gave me the creative outlet that I needed! I started taking photos of my daughters, some friends saw it and asked me if I could take their family photos; then it turned into engagement sessions. And finally turned into my first wedding. And now as they say, the rest is history!
