“There’s a place,
a garden for the young
To laugh and dance in safety among
The shimmering light in the shade of the trees

Sometimes you’ll find what you’re waiting for
Was there all along just waiting for you
To turn around and reconcile

It’s gonna be alright
Turn around and let back in the light
And joy will come Like a bird in the morning sun
And all will be made well once again”

Morning Light by Josh Garrels

Jens and Jolene’s family and friends from around the world gathered together in Jens’s hometown of Potsdam to celebrate their wedding. It was a beautiful spring day surrounded by love and was such a joy to photograph. Their ceremony was held in the Heilandskirche Sacrow and the reception was celebrated across the lake at lovely Schloss Glienicke, both of which are beautiful wedding locations. It was such a beautiful and laid back celebration and the love they have for one another is so genuine and sweet. Also, the idea to serve ice cream after the ceremony was genius, hopefully that becomes a trend!

Thank you again, dear Jolene & Jens for inviting us to document your wedding day and a giant thank you to Andreas for being both an amazing husband and second shooter (I love you!!). Scroll to the bottom for all of the vendor details :)

This was a really fun collaboration with Tatiana Ashakova, who is a super creative and talented hair and makeup stylist. She also designs really beautiful hair accessories that our model wore in the shoot as well. Tatiana sourced a beautiful couture dress from Joyce Young and delicate gowns from Shell Belle Couture. Botanic Art made us a beautiful bouquet and garland which I wrapped around our gorgeous model, Julia. I love the idea of a bride setting aside a bit of time on the morning of the wedding for a short boudoir session and bridal portraits. I always spend a few minutes photographing my brides right before we head off to the ceremony, but scheduling more time for bridal portraits would be amazing!

This shoot was featured on the wonderful all-film fine art wedding blog, Wedding Sparrow. Check out the post here.

It is one of my favorite times of the year. Wedding season has just begun and the trees are exploding with blooms, both of which make me oh so very happy :) Erin & Bobby were the sweetest couple who were visiting Berlin from the US and wanted a heartbeats session to celebrate their time together in one of their favorite cities in the world. We had a fantastic afternoon together and even though it wasn’t quite the warm spring day we had planned for, they both did a great job of not looking cold in the photos ;)

Oh man do these images have me itching to get back to Ireland soon and these autumn colors just made my heart skip a beat. You all might know that I am more than a little bit obsessed with veils and tulle -how gorgeous is her grey veil and dress?! I have long been a fan of non-white wedding dresses, not only are they super unique and flattering, a bride can usually pull off wearing it again after the big day. I am also just madly in love with the dresses that Emily Riggs creates, her new collection has some gorgeous jewel toned wedding gowns.  Pearl & Godiva are hosting two more Styling Pilgrimages this year, and I can highly recommend them to all my wedding industry friends! It was the perfect few days to recharge my creative batteries surrounded by an incredibly talented group. More magic created by the lovely ladies of Pearl and Godiva coming to the blog soon! Make sure to check out all the super talented vendors from at the bottom of the post and more images which were published on Hochzeitsguide.

This was such a fun collaboration with my super talented friends, Lena Schleweis & Botanic Art.  We all adore our brides wearing flowers in their hair, but wanted to create some inspiration beyond the flower crown. The giant succulent and dahlia are bold for a wedding day, but oh so fun! Hoping to see some more brides thinking a bit outside the box with their florals and hair in 2015!
