When you look into the eyes of your loved one, you see they answer all the questions: what you need in life ... who is dearest to you ... without whom you can not live ... And when the wind conjures up in your mind melodic song and you are sure that she hears the same song as you hold it in her hand, looking into her eyes, she whispers "I love you! Together Forever." And just last moon alone have witnessed this emotional explosion ... and only it enlightens for couple the way to home ... and the sky paints pastel colors patterns, giving them this beauty.
I want to go back to places many times to photograph people silhouettes at sunset, when the sky is saturated with bright colors. Silhouettes can convey many emotions and at the same time leave the mystery to the viewer that he saw in his mind his own story
We`ve had very big luck to do this photo. The fact that the groom is a businessman with very little free time,I had to run over my rule of meeting newyweds before the wedding and do a single test shooting. Little advantage was that we knew eachother from another wedding. The weather was typical autumn with lots of fog. Wachau is a world known place along the Danube which was choosen from newlyweds for the wedding location. I had just one day to choose a location for the shooting and hope it would to fine. On the day of the wedding it was vaguely, but till the afternoon, the sun came out from nowhere so we had a perfect sunny day at the Wachau. Happiness smiled at us .
This wedding was great! Grooms divine, fun!
When the dancing began, the groom's friends started throwing it up and that's when I took this picture. I love being in situations, and this photo charm me since I took it.
This wedding took place at one of the most beautiful places I've been to, a Unesco protected place called Lavaux in the Swiss-French region. The reception was in the middle of the vineyards with amazing views of the lake. My client, who invited all her fun girlfriends from Mexico asked me for a group photo with her friends. This photo was a non-literal & creative interpretation of their fun gathering, in that particular place and atmosphere. It was sunset time, I could have lighted the scene completely but then the image would have lost impact. Our eyes are not used to seeing this way so it makes us feel curious about the scene. I could have taken a simple and boring group photo. However, I wanted to show the reason why they chose this venue for their wedding, which was the great wine from that region, the views and the fun company.
This was the wedding day of Anna and Preslav. Their best man and made of honor make a surprise for them-a fireworks while they were dancing on their first dance as a wedding couple. All the guests, the videographer and the other two photographers were there too. It was realy romantic and sweet to dance on the sunset while all of your friends are close to you, smile to you and wish you all the best!
This was an unusual afternoon at the Britannia Shipyards as it was not packed and we actually had space to create something special. This location is a national historic site where the old ships were made and repaired. It sure looks to me the work environment in the old days was a lot better than what is offered now.
This story happened on a country road running along the lake. The trees created a certain rhythm and I liked it very much. The evening sun beautifully highlighted silhouettes and reflections in the lake looked awsome. Thus the photo was captured.
This place was new to me and I haven´t visited there before. When we waited with groom bride to arrive, sun was shining and I was cursing about the hard light. Fortunately bride was almost 40mins late and the weather changed dramatically during that time, clouds came from somewhere and it threw very dramatic and gloomy mood above us. Right after bride arrived, we had so nice light and we were surrounded by tremendous clouds. Beautiful and lovely couple and despite we had very short time to shoot portraits before ceremony, we got superb set for them <3
This photograph is a Self-portrait of "The love of my life and myself". I shot it in my great grandparent's home in a remote village in the South of India. This photograph is very close to my heart. I've always wanted to do a couple-shoot in this house for the beautiful antique looks that the house holds, maintained beautifully by my Grandmother. The first time I took my wife there, we took a few photos and it turned out to be an amazing experience! Winning the Wedisson award for this photograph is just an out of the world feeling for us and of course, the photographer, ME!
This photo was taken on the majestic "La Viña" church, located in Salta (Argentina), which stands out for its architecture.
There were moments during the ceremony when the priest asked for respect and silence, so I had to walk away from the altar.
That's when I saw the simmetry of the church and the beautiful scenery, so I took the picture the couple dreamed of.
This photo was taken in terms of wedding photoshoot for the bride Anastasia at amazingly beautiful park next to Elagin Palace, former imperial family residence in St. Petersburg, Russia.
During the summer time we have world famous WHITE NIGHTS period and this kind of sun you can catch only at 8-9 pm. We were right in time that day!
This old manor house is located near Moscow and is a popular destination among tourists and citizens. There is always a crowd of people, weddings, guests and photographers. So I don't really like to work in this place until now. We were very lucky to get there on Thursday and walk around the Park and completely empty territory.
This is one of the best wedding evening's shooting in this year. Every time sunset brings warm rays and it softly fall on your skin, giving it a warm hue. But if you find such a place where these rays catch the water, and sends back to the sky at the same time reflecting it in their surface ... then there are very strong emotions. Newlyweds enthusiastically said "goodbye" to the sun in its first day of their joint family marriage ... They knew that tomorrow morning the sun greets them not separately, but together when they wake up ... loving and happy. Because they are together .. forever together!
This is one of my favourite images of the year, and it just came about as I saw the bride and groom going off for a little walk together – so I just followed along, as you do! I kept away from them, and just let them be – that’s really the essence of what I love to do; just capturing real people, being themselves. I love to shoot wide shots like this, capturing the context, the drama of their surroundings. Of course, in this situation I was massively helped by the light, too – can’t claim credit for that!
This is a wedding in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The bride and groom live there and they are both surfers, beach lovers, so this was the perfect place for their wedding. This moment was right after their first look in the hotel, when we were shooting some couple pictures. The moment just appeared: the bride, the bouquet, the high spot, so we did it, we throw the bouquet!
This couple eloped in Paris, and we started their creative portrait session at sunrise. No people, beautiful light, and we got lucky when all the birds came to visit! The iconic Eiffel Tower in the background made the one romantic shot!
This awesome couple wanted something a bit more spectacular than normal sprinklers at the end of the evening. Being huge fireworks fans (especially the groom), they arranged 8 emergency flares. These flares are usually used on sinking ships, or other types of emergencies.
Because these flares are very bright and possible dangerous when not used correctly, we made this shot as safe as we could, with this great photo as a result.
This actually happend on my own vacation. We walked around The Eiffel Tower, when I saw a two photographers and a wedding couple. I just stoped and took a shot. It's was really excitement and kind of lucky for me to see this in Paris on sunset light. I wish the couple all the best and great pictures to the two photographers.
The love and care shown in this photo is only completed by the beauty of the Spanish location. This was one of the so many gorgeous pre-wedding reception shots taken for this adorable lovers.
The bride and groom both live on a ranch in the grasslands of Nebraska. Walking along the hills is something they loved to do when dating so we decided to take them out and have them walk those hills on their wedding day since the ceremony was on the brides ranch. The sun was setting and haze from wildfires 3 states away caused the sky to go deep orange. I love the moment of the groom leading his new bride down the ridge.
Taken in deepest darkest Cornwall in the UK, this, for me, is an example of ‘shooting through the moment’; just capturing all the little incidentals, not just the kisses and the hugs. It’s just a small thing – James helping Eli as she steps down from the rock – but that little touch of mutual support, that small moment…it really makes it for me. The weather, of course, makes this image too, and we just managed to get back inside before those clouds stopped threatening and started opening!
Some things never get old. Throwing leaves at people is one of those things. Since this wonderful couple had an autumn-themes wedding and the leaves were falling from the trees at that point, I couldn’t let this chance let me go by. Two people were assisting me in making this photo. I told them to pick up as many leaves as possible, and throw them into the air at the count of 3.
So they did, resulting in this photo. I especially love the expression of sheer joy in the bride’s face. It doesn’t get better than that!
So we decided to have a ride on the motor scooter just before the ceremony, they ride it to work everyday. We had so much fun that we almost were to late for the ceremony, so they will always remember how we had to rush back to hairstylist to fix hair and then to ceremony. I had lots of fun while working with this lovely couple.
Shooting in the Dominican Republic, I climbed up a lifegaurd stand for a different vantage point of the bride and groom walking along the shoreline! The water was so calm and still, it was the perfect moment!
Photo from beautifull Seychelles and one of the most photoshooting beaches of the world.. Huge rocks and brave newly-married ready for any adventure...
One thing I love about weddings is meeting people and their families. This is the bride with her two sisters who have a really special bond. In this moment right after the ceremony they were hugging and crying, such an emotional time… and suddenly this crazy orange rice appeared in front to my camera. I didn’t realize how funny the picture was until I looked at it after the wedding. I hope the bride and her sisters remember this moment too.
One great aspect of Vancouver is we get a great mixture of nature and modernized buildings. Imagine sitting on a bench in the provincial park filled with fall leafs and your loved one beside. Starring off to the busy downtown buildings and just enjoy the moment of warm and calmness. This is what this feeling looks like.
Nimati was one of my favourite brides to work with! Her love story, her charm and beauty weren't hard to capture. Not forgetting her editorial dress.
Kimberly & Mark wanted to do something different, and asked me to create something bold that represented them as a couple.<br />
We walked around the Davis California until I found the perfect location and this was the end result to cap the night.
It's not often we get the actual view of the bride and groom. The father of the bride had made a touching speech to his daughter and new son in law. The moment had to be frozen in time some how. The point of view can be so touching as it out you back into that moment. As wedding photographers we have the opportunity to let people re-live some of the most magical times of their lives.
It was a wonderful day in Munich, the weather, the Sun, clouds,flowers and a huge Palacein front of me: Nymphenburg Palace!
She had such a beautiful and classy red Dress and he was looking reallysharp. When I saw them first,I’ was dying to get them in front of my camera. As much as I love Nymphenburg Palace and all of my fantastic wedding poses, it’s always fun to do something new.This time I wanted to shoot something sophisticated; their pose, their faces,their emotions, their dresses...
I’d had this idea in my head for a while so I was stoked to find a couple that were keen to schedule a shoot that coincided with the full moon. Unfortunately it was very cloudy that evening, but there was a little gap in the clouds at the perfect moment. They ended up with an unique photo and got to witness an amazing moonrise first hand.
I was coming back from a 4-weeks roadtrip through all the US, and my plane landed in the morning in Paris. I then took my car, parked at the airport, drove 5 hours to the summit of the Puy de Dôme, the highest volcano in Auvergne, to join Marion and Christophe for their trash the dress session. We planned this on the last day on which the train would take us back after the sunset from the summit to the carpark, so I had no choice for the date!
When we got up there, it was raining a little bit, but we took it easy and took some pictures when the sun was peaking through the clouds. We also had a picnic up there.
We were walking back to the train station when suddenly the whole sky became red. I looked at them and told them to run with me to the edge of a cliff. When we arrived there, the sun was setting, and peaked through the clouds one last time. It was red, and the rainy clouds and the rain created a sort of very soft gradient from the sky to the valleys. The light was amazing. We had a 2-minutes window to get as many pictures as we could with this light, and this one came up. I was very jetlagged but I enjoyed it so much I didn't care anymore!
I took this photograph at the end of the day, the couple had already danced and always make one last photo of them before we left. We were looking for some original site and found a room with a beautiful mirror. The bride and groom were so relaxed and had much connection between them. They embraced, and she stroked his face, was this the time that we take to photograph them. The photo is a reflection of them. I love the texture of the wall, along with the reflection creates a slightly mysterious image ...
Here in British Columbia we are blessed with the beautiful colours of the seasons. The cute couple really wanted to have something unique, so we found this. Beautiful deep blue sky contrasting the layered clouds and a sunset to warm up the couple with its golden colours at the famous Stanley Park in Vancouver.
Especially in the combination with lots of wind.
On the wedding day of bride Susan we had both, which resulted in this picture.
Each photographer is trying to play in his life a frame that has never been done ... Make masterpiece as an artist paints a picture. Photo remembered what people? Making custom photos, the photographer is the creator of something new, this striking viewer.
On this frame couple in love newlyweds views are focusing on each other. And all around creates an illusion of planet, no crowded on the planet ... which only they are ... and their feelings between them!
Cocktails, appetizers, laughter, and a couple in love -- the perfect recipe for an awesome Engagement Session! Hailey & Justin were super adorable and couldn’t help their constant giggles, smiles and affection for each other. After sipping on delicious adult beverages, we made our way over to the awesome Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles. With its curvy stainless steel skin and billowy architecture, it was impossible to not get amazing shots of our new friends. Needless to say, we had a fantastic day!
Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".
Allister & Genevieve got married in Cancun, Mexico. The weather is usually great in Mexico, but you never really know how it is going to turn out. Only 15 minutes before this photograph was captured the sky was completely dark and it was raining heavily. We all prayed the storm would go away and it did for a brief moment. We had a very short window of opportunity to capture this image. The sky was perfect, the light was great, the scenery was beautiful and magic happened.
After three full days of non-stop thunderstorms, everyone was worried that there were going to be no cherry blossoms left on the trees for the big day. Luckily, that morning, the sun came out just in time and we all agreed that the fallen cherry blossoms only made the photos look even more romantic.
The cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It's a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful.” - as it was the inspiration for the day.
After their ceremony, the bride and groom wanted to capture some photos around sunset time at the highest hill surrounding the valley. We all jumped into the father of the groom’s car, went up to the highest point, and captured some amazing photos. If you look closely, you can see their wedding ceremony location down below just to the right of them.
A wedding day without sunshine, but with lots of rain and wind... Not really the weather the bride and groom hoped for.Luckily we found a great indoor photo location for their shoot: an old factory with great light!
