Meet Your Photographer

FAQ

Hi, I'm Gatis!

GET IN TOUCH

I’ve been shooting weddings for the past 10 years now and it has been an incredible experience - traveling to distant lands, meeting many amazing people and having the chance to see their connection and love. 


When I’m not hiding behind my camera I usually watch documentaries, learn to be a better cook, play board games and travel to foreign places. Also, I’m totally a cat person (dogs are cool too tho), love getting the chills listening to music & go wild for crazy/new pizza toppings (canned peaches & blue cheese, anyone?) 


If you love my work and think we’d be a good match – reach out! I’d be happy to document your story in the most natural and beautiful way possible. Let’s have fun!

My Approach

I absolutely love simple & romantic images that tell your story by themselves. Images that let you remember how you felt that day. Images that highlight the beauty all around you. All the dances together, his touch on your cheek, the slow walk along the shore, the look in his eyes when he first sees you. 


Those random moments of vulnerability and happiness when you get close to each other, moments when he tells you how beautiful you look, moments when he holds your hands and you feel loved. 


Those are the moments I strive to capture. You and your love.

What I love

People, experiences & places that make my day better

Inga

She’s just too adorable all day long, pets every animal she can get her hands on, curious about everything, is an amazing photographer and the happiest person I know. Also, a self-proclaimed queen of naps.

Exploring Places

I absolutely love exploring places I have never been to. Doesn’t even have to be some distant, magical land – I wander around with curiosity pretty much anywhere.

My Cat Galacticus

Ben Howard's Music

Inspiration is important. And Ben Howard's work just talks to me. I’m likely to listen to it while editing photos. I think it's the acoustic and experimental vibe that does it for me.

City at Night

The “world is asleep” feeling sure is a weird thing. It seems like the city has a different energy to it at night time. Everything seems slower and has a serene feel to it.

Board Games

Do you have any? Because if you do I’ll probably get really excited to talk about them! What’s not to like? Friends get together, laugh, argue and have a great time! Love the atmosphere board games create!

Just look at him. Chills wherever he pleases and meows for attention every chance he gets. Somehow he thinks it's cool to sleep on my keyboard while I work. I wish I could take him with me on my travels.

Let's Travel!

I am based in Riga, Latvia but I travel quite a lot internationally to shoot weddings. Here are some of my favorite destination weddings I’ve shot recently. If you like what I do, please contact me and tell me your story. How you guys met, where the wedding’s going to be held, what cakes you like – anything that comes to mind. I’d love to hear it all! I’d be more than happy to come and join you on your big day. Just reach out and we can make things happen! 


On my free time, I travel to places I’ve never been before and take my camera with me. I absolutely love travel photography – to wander around not knowing which path leads where. I guess I’m fascinated by the unknown. One of my last trips led me to London. Together with my partner in crime Inga our mission was to get lost in the city of colors whilst shooting, laughing and eating so many pizzas in corner cafes. 


Here are a few places that stayed with me even after I left. I’d like to return someday and re-live the serenity and wanderlust I felt while being there.
