What do you do when you are getting married and Amsterdam is your city? Right! You arrange a bike and ride through the traffic on the Magere Brug in the centre of Amsterdam. We had so much fun! This picture had to be in black and white as far as I am concerned. Love the expression on their faces.
We were not sure if the weather was going to cooperate nor how we were going to get in, but the adventure was fun and it all worked out in the end.
We photographed this beautiful couple in the streets of the town Deventer, The Netherlands. No cars were allowed in these small streets, so it was safe to lie down on it and take this shot. The historical setting makes it a romantic and timeless picture.
Valentin and Eugenia are a sensual couple from Odessa. They organized a wedding! Instead of a noisy banquet, the newlyweds decided to make a furshete and a walk in nature. They realized their dream - the final of the wedding took place at sunset in a fantastic place!
This was my first wedding for this season. Clara & Luca had a perfectly choreographed first dance and there was a lot of excitement when Luca scooped Clara up for the big finale. I love that you can see the guests faces and reaction and Clara's enjoyment.
This was a crazy group of very close friends who were extremely excited about the night and their cigars. However; much like all attendees at weddings, it took some entertaining to get most of them to pay attention. Especially towards the end of the night. By using a red key light we not only created an amazing photo, the guys were curious to see what we were up to. We love vibrant colors and this is a new way we were able to incorporate it into our photos.
This shot was taken in the last few minutes of sunset. This shot was taken with a two flash set up. I backlit the bride and groom using an off camera flash and placed a second flash with a Magmod on it 50 feet away camera left pointing at the couple. I love how it turned out softly illuminating my couple.

This picture was made in Bourtange. The playground from the groom when he was younger. That's why they wanted to take pictures here. Bourtange is a monumental little village with walls and canons around. From the air it looks like a star just like this lovely couple.
This photo was taken by me in one of Pittsburgh's favorite places. All wedding couples of our city like this place for photos.
The history of the photo is unusual in that this photo we did a week after the wedding. Because on the wedding day there was a breakdown in time, and we did not have time to make some staged planned shots.
But I with great pleasure work with my couples after, if something went wrong.
This photo was taken by 85mm Photography on the Observation Deck of the Guthrie Theater in downtown Minneapolis. The Guthrie Theater is a very popular photo location for couples on their wedding day. While most photographers shoot the opposite direction and capture the Mississippi River and Saint Anthony Main area in the background, we decided to give this shot our own twist. The Guthrie Theater is an architectural masterpiece, so we wanted to capture some of the dynamic lines, shadows, and reflections the building produces. Utilizing the rich blue windows behind the couple, we were still able to capture the Stone Arch Bridge and Saint Anthony Main area in the photo. Many more shots from this wedding are visible on our website.
85mm Photography is a husband and wife team based in Minneapolis, MN.
This photo I took at the wedding banquet. It was very difficult to persuade some of the people to agree to lie down. But everyone agreed and gave me a chance to make this photo.
This is the moment. The moment right before you kiss the person you just promised your entire world to for always. The moment you look into your best friend's eyes and know that this is the first of many amazing memories in your lifetime together. Lena and Matt showed the world that in this moment, they have truly found their soulmates in each other.
This image was made at the Red Lion and Manor in Burnsall in the Yorkshire Dales. Gillian and James were so super lovely and chilled and we took a stroll over this bridge for them to gather their thoughts and reflect on the day so far. This was my second ever wedding.
This church organ is very unique. Especially for this groom. He plays the church organ and the brother of this bride plays THIS church organ. Normally it is not allowed to take pictures in this church, so I was so excited to hear that we had permission. I love all the detail in this photo.

There were really close and emotional bridesmaids at this wedding. During the day each of them from time to time had tears on their eyes, that was the sign that the wedding was going to be emotionally charged.
As a result it really was. Had the couple exchanged rings and Bingo! The bridesmaids burst into tears. The aim was to catch the moment when all of them wiped tears at the same time to make the shot more expressive.
The theme of this wedding was cowboy/girl. Stoer, like they say in the Netherlands.
And what is more perfect fitting to this theme as this (clean) barn.
Only to clean if you ask me, because I sort of miss the cows in there. Says the photographer that is slightly scared of cows.
The couple was married when she was heavily pregnant. She has always regretted that they are not in a nice dress standing in the picture. That's why we made this Afterweddingshoot. She was now pretty slim and very happy in beautiful wedding dress. We picked a tough hangar with aircraft and MiG as decoration. That gave this pretty cool photo.
Taken late on the evening of the wedding the couple wanted a little time to themselves before the first dance so we went out to create this image. Just something simple yet colourful and slightly magical.
One of my favourites from last year without a doubt!
Sarah & Josh got married at an old school house in New Zealand so I thought it would be fun to make use of the school's tennis court for their portrait shoot.
Pennsylvania Castle is a beautiful venue on the Jurassic coast in Dorset, and the bridal suite is one of the nicest I've had the pleasure to come across. I always enjoy photographing this part of the day and trying to capture all the excitement and anticipation, and also precious little moments like this one.
Nikita and Niyam's wedding was one of those gorgeous colorful Indian wedding full of vibrance and back to back celebration. We managed to get a quick moment in between the group shots just before heading to their cocktail party.
La luz se filtró entre los arboles. Este tipo de luz acentúa el misterio y el romanticismo. La fotografía fue tomada en el Real monasterio de Guadalupe.
It was the idea of the bride and groom to do shoots in the metro underground as its part of their Montreal daily life.
So we set the scene where I was on the other side of the platform and I suggested that they reenact a fallout, and voila! I suggested they keep a distance apart for composition and it would portray the body posing clearer. They were naturals :) and they love improvising.
All smiles at the end!
It was such a great, beautiful wedding. The Groom and the Bride were doing their first dance at the center of the stage. The guests were seated all around the stage. So I took a seat on one of the tables facing the couple and waited for the right moment. The photo came out nice and the couple were happy with the results.
It is said 'the best photos are often captured without planning' and this is one of them. I had already covered the wedding ceremony at the church and had to drive 2 hours (of what was meant to be a 45 min journey) to the reception venue due to heavy traffic. It was a beautiful day and it felt like it was the only nice day of the whole winter. Luckily, I arrived at the venue at the same time as Mark and Jenny (our couple in the photo). The golden hour was gone and we did not want to miss what was left of the beautiful orange sky. So we decided to make a run for it. I grabbed my Nikon D750 and a Cactus Speedlight and transceiver and ran to where this photo was taken. I had to hook the Speedlight on a branch to get the light just where I wanted and this is the result.
I was super excited when Jay & Tessa asked me to travel up to the north of England to capture their wedding, and my excitement only grew when I heard about all the plans they had, and all the fun little details that would make the day their own!
The wedding itself was really intimate, special and emotional, and one of the photographic highlights, was the appearance of an old vintage double decker bus to transport the guests between venues. The bus was stunning, and my thoughts instantly turned to finding a nice spot for them to have a moment alone (well apart from me and my camera!), so on inspection it was obvious the top deck provided a very cool spot for them to enjoy a little quiet time.
I choose to pick them a seat, and rather than pose them, I decided to then leave them to do whatever they wanted - I got a whole series of awesome moments from this setting, but this one in particular really stood out for me as it showed them both naturally enjoying the moment and taking in what they had just done. I think it's a really romantic moment and I'm really proud of it.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to document my brothers sweet wedding. Robert and Lisa were married on the first day of the new year, under one of our gorgeous grand live oaks, here in Charleston. Such a special day for both of them, and our whole family.
I love this moment between Bekky and her bridesmaids. They were all so blown away the first time they saw Bekky in her dress and you can tell by their reaction! These unscripted, natural moments are the best!
I have visited Castle Howard since I was little and was insanely excited to be asked to photograph Nicola & Greg's wedding there last year. Despite what they grey sky might suggest it was the middle of July! The weather was not on our side for most of the day but we managed a quick 10 minute wander outside before the rain started up and I captured this shot of the two of them enjoying a quiet (if a little breezy!) moment in the grounds before heading in to eat.
Grandfather with granddaughter at G&K's wedding in the Netherlands. After the newlyweds marriage, they would embark on a journey to Canada (to live there). One can just imagine the emotions, both joyous and sorrowful, of guests bidding their farewells. There was so much love; definitely one of my favorite weddings ever!
Esta foto fue hecha el día de la boda de Ruben y Cristina . Al atardecer aparecen nubes de mosquitos. puse un flash a contraluz y aparecieron como puntitos que se confunden con estrellas !
Early mornings in Octobre.. i love it! It's half past seven when we arrive at the Panbos/Katwijk. The sun is rising, fog in the forest ♥ Ronald & Andrea
Durante la sesión de bajamos ala playa por este camino serpenteante, había una ligera neblina que dejaba pasar algunos rayos de luz.
Castle Pyrmont is located in the western part of Germany. It is a really special and beautiful place. Surrounded by forest, you have a breathtaking view, when you are on top of the tower. This photo is taken in the "Kastaniengarten". It is a small garden where in former time a chapel was located. Today there is this beautiful old chestnut tree. It is such a beautiful place to be. It was just the right moment when the sun came over the old castle and illuminated the scenery.
Beki & Cliff have a massive passion for scooters and Mod culture, they just had to include some old friends in their special day!
Being an Indian the first thing that strikes anybody for the symbol of love is the Taj Mahal .
A wonder of wonders in the world, that is a living edifice of human love, which neither History dares to bury in its grave nor does Time dare to forget.
I got the camera in position. Angles were set to frame the Taj into the little black box.
As it would always be, the crowd hardly allowed us to get a glimpse of the beauty through the lens. Neither the Taj nor the couple could enter the frames that were composed. Then we found a way to go behind the Taj. We discovered that there was just a “fence” that was keeping the dream picture away from us.
“It appears like a perfect pearl on an azure ground.
As a photographer you're always searching for other ways to capture usual situations in an unusual way. One way is to let yourself bomb with high heels :)
And this photo was taken in Munich. As now I remember how the guards drove us from this ladder. But I managed to remove a couple of frames. Thank you guys for taking part in this action together.
Although i'm surrounded with flowers, i will always pick you..
I need you, your smile lights up my world, you make me laugh more than anyone else has ever done and you make me the best version of myself..
Being with you is what I call happiness, and I will love u till the day after forever..

Abi and Pat got married at the Chatham Historic Dockyard (yes, this image was taken inside the venue), we had 5 minutes to grab an image of them just after the service. I saw the lights on the roof of the dockyard and with a handy reflection I managed to capture this.
A wedding filled with such atmosphere and happiness, and lovely and buzzy! Farbridge Barns is a beautiful Barn in West Sussex and the views from the courtyard are gorgeous. After dinner the light is stunning in the lower courtyard and the guests were having such fun playing games and indulging in a few post dinner cocktails! The boys wanted a picture of the "Stag Boys" - so they came up with something a little more alternative! - No body was hurt which is also a bonus! I just love how relaxed and unposed the whole thing is with the light in the background on the fields. You cant help but feel the atmosphere of the wedding from this photo..........
A special place for the bride. It was taken in the backyard of her grandfather. The place where she was playing around while she was a kid, was now the decor for the wedding-shoot.

Meet Christie and Austin, our amazing couple that brought their magic carpet to the engagement photography session in Atlanta.
Love in a church because is was raining all day. The darkness of the church with the only light from a chandelier made this photo special.
This photo was taken using an 85mm prime lens in natural light. I framed the couple by photographing through some floral vines that dresses the walkway.
With a destination loveshoot all the way in London.
They loved the London Eye, and so I did photograph them in front of the London Eye with alle kinds of lights and triggers.
I also fell in love with London AND this couple <3
Two very happy souls in the biggest dessert in EU.
It was so much wind on FUERTEVENTURA that day that happiness and love of those two was felt miles away.
