I met this couple on Aruba during a loveshoot and after that shoot they asked me to shoot their wedding in Holland. What a perfect wedding! The sun was shining, they look stunning, everybody was having fun and the venues were perfect! But the most special moment of that day to me was the first moment the marine will see his wife to be for the very first time!
CRAZY IN LOVE.
That's all I can say about this beautiful couple. They flew from New-York to get married in Switzerland by the beautiful Leman Lake. The whole day was an absolute delight to shoot. But this. This moment. By itself this photograph sums up the essence of their special day: passionate, sincere, uncontrived, joyful, modern.
Initially, the esthetic in me was a bit annoyed by the smartphone in the bottom left corner of the frame. But then I thought, this was all part of the frenzy, and this picture shows all ingredients of a genuinely modern wedding. Loved it.
Towards the end of the day, I saw this tree and decided I wanted to light it up with an autumn feel, with some deep reds.
So I used 3 speed lights with red gels behind the couple. The bride held the umbrella and the groom held a diffused speed light behind him. Took a couple of tries, but well worth the set up and feel of Autumn.
There are few more beautiful places in the UK than the Peak District in Derbyshire. Vickie and Dan asked to do their pre-wedding shoot on a Sunday evening on Thorpe Cloud and this is the result. We climbed to the top and the views were spectacular, helped considerably by the very consistent British weather! Thank you so much guys for trusting me!
Wedding on a farm was something I always wanted to do. So I was so much in luck with this stunning couple. It was the farm of the mother of the bride and it had so much possibilities! Getting ready, the photoshoot, the ceremony, reception, BBQ and party! And this car! So stunning!
The rain came in the evening. In fact it was so heavy, I was glad I had put new tyres on my car two days earlier. I could already see perfect colours with the blue in the sky and the warm lighting on the building, so all that remained was for me to get wet, while my couple stayed dry and had a little moment!
September was all about rain. A lot of rainy weddings and most brides get upset. This bride just couldn't care less! What a great bride and groom. I was thinking we probably have to go inside, and then I realised: Maybe not every bride gets upset with rain so I asked her and she said " We really want to go out, even if it rains" So we put our boots on en Lets GO!! Lying in the mud and all. I love this picture because it taught me that limitations is in our minds. I should never let it stop me.
My goal when shooting a wedding is to capture all of those little, fabulous moments which happen alongside the more formal bits. Shot right towards the end of the day, I just love this! It truly captures the fun of the day and sums up in a single frame just how awesome Fiona's wedding was :)
For photographers, this was shot on a Fuji XT-2 and lit with a simple Godox TT350 on camera along with a little off-camera flash in the opposite corner of the room.
Rebecca is a bride like none other. I was so fortunate to document E + R big day over two separate days. They exchanged vows during an intimate 20-person ceremony on a hillside in Mont Tremblant. I then visited Erik’s parents’ home in hudson, Quebec for a chic reception. I am honoured to now call these two my friends. Blush dress, furry heels, and skull cuff links were but few of the stylish details of this dream of a wedding.
How can someone not be moved by such a beautiful love, celebrated amid so many smiles and a spectacular nature? It is delightful to document the beginning of a new family, where everyone celebrates with one heart. Love is really revolutionary, unique ... an eternal feeling!
When we were walking alongside the river IJssel in Brummen (Netherlands), i saw this platform which was partly broken above the river. When i asked my bride and groom if they would dare to step on the broken platform they yelled "hell yeah" and they both stepped on it and started cuddeling eachother. Such an awesome moment!
Justin and Christina had their amazing destination wedding in an old tonnara in Scopello, Sicily on a warm autumn afternoon.
The sea stacks and the mediterranean breeze were the perfect scenery for their elegant and emotional event.
I used a wireless flash to spot them against the tonnara walls
I love shooting on golf courses but trying to find "diversity" in the landscape isn't always the easiest. This photo was taken as the storm clouds were clearing up giving us a beautiful backdrop in the sky. The happy couple were actually already married and this was their reception for those who didn't travel abroad for their ceremony. As their wedding was less formal and held in a tropical climate, I think the contrast of a formal portrait on a golf course complimented their reception feel.
Meet Carlos and his mom. How can you celebrate your wedding day without your most beloved companion? Carlos was a definite show stopper at this country-chic wedding at Liberty Fields in Pennsylvania. And Ali, well, a most stunning bride. So we put the two together and made some magic!
This image from this wedding is really special to me. I just love how she is more concerned about her dad, when he is walking her down the isle then noticing all the family and friends applauding for her. It is just her and her dad for a moment.
Three weeks after the wedding her dad passed away.
High Mountain Wedding - When Ángel and Silvia proposed to us to make this wedding we loved the idea. The place is Lagos de Covadonga, formed by two small lakes the Enol and the Ercina of glacial origin located in the western massif of the National Park of Picos de Europa in Asturias (Spain). A beautiful place on planet Earth where pure oxygen is breathed and where cows live in their home.
