Twenty Fifth Collection
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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..........
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.

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.
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.
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..

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.
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.
