The bride and groom were sitting at the head table listening to toasts from their closest friends and family. I was awestruck by some of the words that were said about them a lot of times toasts can ramble on with readings straight from an electronic screen, but these were genuine and real and authentic and you could see that they were so real and so touching that even the bride and groom were caught up in the Emotions. I don't typically sit this close to the bride and groom during the toasts but they had these high tables at an elevated position and I was able to kind of just curl up down in front of them unbeknownst to anybody.
I just sat there and watched and snapped and watched and snapped and this was the byproduct of that patience.
Firstly,It was a lovely couple.
I like a place where couples opt for a pre-wedding shoot. It suits the couple.
I love this mirror It is at the point between the first and second floors of the building.
This image looks great because of the color of the dress with a cute gesture of the groom.
Rimple got married in Raipur, India and this was a photo taken during the last day of her 5 day wedding. This was such a beautiful moment and composition. Once I saw all of her female family members surrounding her I decided to stick with the composition, created the right light and waited for some minutes until there was an interaction.
When I finished the report of the wedding day I thought I was missing a photo, I decided to take advantage of the waterfall and that it was already dark to take this picture next to the small lake. Marçal and Lorena surprised us for the desire that they had to pose before the camera. The wedding day was celebrated in a restaurant of Barcelona, a cozy place wher we felt like in home. Sometimes when you take photos without having them in mind turn out one of the bests.
This picture was taken in the most beautiful park in the Nederlands. Clingendael in the Hague, a park with a variety of landscapes.
This was an after wedding shoot of a Indian bride and groom. The bride was wearing a traditional Indian wedding dress. This shot on the stairs, was an idea of the groom. So all credits to the groom.
A week before the wedding, the couple and I were getting to know the place. It's a picture I could visualize that day. Those roofs, stone path that seemed a perfect setting. The place is called specifically "Concejo Hospederia" and is in a village in the province of Valladolid called Valoria la Buena. I really love making.
The wedding day schedule of a groomsman can be tough. In this case, Brennen had to go... Yes, this is not your traditional wedding memory, but certainly a memorable one. Congratulations to Jordan and Colby who had their beautiful wedding at the Bleckley Inn in Anderson, South Carolina.
A late evening shot from Andy and Amber’s wedding at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. As many weddings do, we were running a bit behind and running out of light, this was one of the last shots we got in before it was too dark to use natural light.
This photo was taken in Stiwoll a place in Austria.
The bridal couple told me of your favorite place where a beautiful tree is located and whether we can not make a photo,
of course we drove during your wedding to this place, when we arrived we were thrilled.
Thank you to our bridal couple Claudia and Patrick without whom we probably would not have found this great place.
We walked arround in the Orangerie at Landgoed Dordwijk.
It's a beautifull october day and we did many great shots.
This one I took after I showed them how you can also use a veil. Just a shot between shot.
But there LOVE is the greattest. And that made the picture perfectly!
I love intimate weddings, few people but so much love ! This wedding was special to me because of the love between this couple and their story. After the toast we skipped away for half an hour to make some pictures in this beautiful building, het Glaspaleis (Heerlen, the Netherlands). Modern architecture, perfectly placed natural light and a couple in love is all you need !
Lana and Mike were married in Yorkton Saskatchewan on a rainy stormy day and we were running short on time for photos as it was.. as we headed to the location, we were stopped by a long train so we hopped out by the side of the road and just decided to go for the photos right there! The setting ended up being perfect and in the ten minutes that we had, I love the emotion and beauty captured in their wedding photos.. this will always be one of my favorite weddings!
"So the journey begins".... The bride and groom slogan for their special day. I met this lovely couple in The Netherlands and was very excited that they chose me to shoot their wedding in Ireland where the bride is originally from. The journey started in Dublin Ireland and then traveling west through the middle of the country to where the wedding took place in county Claire. In the photo you will notice the beautiful castle of Bunratty in the background which holds special meaning to the bide as her ancestors help build this castle in the 15th century. It was an absolute pleasure shooting this wedding in this beautiful location. The only real trouble was deciding the right photo to showcase as there were many great shots to choose from but I'm glad that I went with this shot!
To finish the wedding off, the balcony in the Great Hall is a cool place to create something different. Having photographed quite a few couples on the balcony I like to keep the photographs unique to them and not copy previous photos from other weddings. One of my previous balcony image which has won an international award was in black and white so this time I really wanted to add a splash of colour.
The candle light ceremony at Kaitlyn and Habib's wedding was quite the spectacle. The light inside the room was dimmed down and most of the ambient light came from the candles. I had the opportunity to get to the second floor balcony to get the bird's eye view of the whole ceremony. The movement of the Kaitlyn's dress, Habib's warm smile and the symbolism of them being surrounded by their friends and family, all came together in perfect harmony! This is one of those shots, that will stay as my favourite for a long time to come!
Two little Princesses
These two little princesses had the exact same dress as their (bride)mum. The house where the preparations were being made for the weddingday was absolutely stunning. I was sitting in the hallway just waiting for a magic moment to happen as I knew the girls would come out of the room and show their precious-one-day-in-a-life dress to everyone. I loved the surroundings, the light, and these two beautiful girls.
