Experts with background in photography, design and filmmaking come together to decide the best images and films entered into the WeddingSutra Photography Awards 2023.  

Anthony Venitis - BV Wedding Films

Anthony is a destination wedding videographer and his wedding films follow a particular philosophy: he concentrates on glimpses of pure emotion, unexpected and unfiltered, and captures the naturally beautiful facial features and expressions, the dynamism of body language, and the magic of the atmosphere created during that special day. Although based in Greece, he has gone far from its borders –a keen travel enthusiast at the same time- filming weddings in a wide range of destinations all over the world, from Italy to France, Bali to Switzerland, and so on.
Obsessively observant as a destination wedding videographer, he knows in depth how to capture the combination of grand gestures, spontaneous moments, and those little details that make the true difference. After the cake is cut, the fireworks fade and the glitter lands, what is great to know is that a compelling video story, of your personal journey and celebration, was created, just for you, a treasure to hold for a lifetime.
