Portfolio – Croatia Weddings and Engagements

Wedding Photography by Damir Plavotic - Wedding couple at Croatia beach in romance.

Hello and thank you for checking out my portfolio. Here you can take a look at some of the Croatia weddings and engagements I have selected to show you what it is that I do. See the technical aspects and the style of my photography and what it is that I look to capture in my photos.

This selection should not be viewed as a catalog of standardized products. I believe that every couple is special, and my goal is to capture that special element and take photos that tell that couple’s unique story. Every single one of these engagement and wedding photo sessions had its own natural flow, just as unique as the people who are in the photos. That means that even if another couple has their session in one of the locations featured in these galleries, their photo shoot will have its own natural course and the photos will tell their own unique love story.

Although I also shoot destination weddings all over the world, this selection is focused on Croatia weddings and engagements.

If you have any questions or comments about my work, or you want to inquire about an idea you have for your own session, feel free to contact me. I will be more than happy to read your thoughts and reply as soon as possible.

Croatia engagements - Ivana and Dragan, engagement in Groznjan, Croatia.

Ivana and Dragan – Engagement in Grožnjan, Istria

Grožnjan is as close as you can be to a fairytale setting in real life. It is a small fortress-town that looks like it did hundreds of years ago – magical. The cobblestone streets, medieval stone walls, houses and churches provided a perfect romantic setting for this couple’s engagement session.


Croatia weddings - Ivana and Danijel, wedding in Opatija, Croatia.

Ivana and Danijel – Wedding on the Opatija Riviera

Here is a wedding that had it all: a reception at a luxurious hotel, a traditional church wedding ceremony, a photo shoot in the wonderful streets of the Old Town, and a gala dinner that soon escalated into a full-blown party. Most importantly, every segment of this wedding has its own charm and unique effect on the newlyweds and their family and friends, and that was my focus during this event. The photos show a range of emotions and expressions – some excitement, occasional tears of joy, genuine happiness and finally, a bit of dance floor euphoria – but all genuine, beautiful images of real people celebrating the union of a lovely couple.


Croatia weddings - Iris and Sasha, wedding in Dalmatia, Croatia.

Iris and Sasha – Beach Wedding in Dalmatia

Beaches are definitely among the most romantic locations for a wedding in croatia. I chose this fantastic beach in Dalmatia for Iris and Sasha’s wedding session and they just loved it, which you can see from the photos. They danced barefoot across the golden sand, hugged and kissed in the setting sun, spontaneous and beautiful as the untouched nature around them.


Croatia engagements - Suzana and Francesco, engagement in Cres, Croatia.

Susana and Francesco – Engagement on the Island of Cres

If you love the natural beauty of the Adriatic seaside and settings that evoke the feeling of medieval romances, Cres is the perfect location for your photo shoot. Susana and Francesco wanted an intimate session, so they got engaged in the Island of Cres, where time seems to have stopped centuries ago and everything still feels like a poem from the times of the Venetian Republic. Small, rustic villages devoid of modern tourist attractions, untouched natural environment and gorgeous shore are the perfect surroundings for an intimate and romantic photo shoot.


Croatia weddings - Ivana and Dragan, wedding in Istia, Croatia.

Ivana and Dragan – Wedding in Istria

Here is a gallery that really showcases the natural beauties of Istria. Ivana and Dragan had a small wedding for their closest friends and family. See the lovely images of the wedding preparations, the church ceremony and the photo shoot in the gorgeous rural Istria landscape.


Croatia engagements - Beach engagement Pag, Croatia.

Lana and Toni – Beach Engagement on the Island of Pag, Croatia

Although the Island of Pag is more known for the wild parties and crazy nightlife, this beautiful island also offers a plethora of romantic locations. One of them is this fantastic beach where Lana and Toni had their engagement photo shoot. Check out their romantic photo session in the wonderful Island of Pag.


Croatia weddings - Martina and Christian, wedding in Istria, Croatia.

Martina and Christian – A Traditional Wedding in Istria, Croatia

This is a wedding that changed my mind about the traditional customs. Martia and Christian had a traditional croatian wedding in the picturesque rural countryside of Istria and not only it was beautiful, it was also as exciting as they get. Some of the customs may seem odd at first, but they guarantee fun and hilarity once you relax and let go.


Croatia engagements - Engagement at Rab, Croatia.

Beach engagement on Rab island, Croatia

This is definitely one of the most romantic photo shoots I have ever done. Sarah and Max traveled halfway across the globe, all the way from the USA to have their destination engagement in Croatia. Take a look at their beautiful photo shoot on this paradise-like beach on the fantastic Island of Rab.
