Gartenglueck Wegendorf Hochzeit

I am thrilled to get the chance to share the work of a super talented team of vendors and felt honored to get to work with them all.  We wanted to create a super chic wedding in the countryside, similar to the beautiful barn weddings we have back in California. We had so much fun organizing this shoot together and had a blast on our day of shooting.  Our models, Josephin and Daniel were so sweet and just a joy to photograph.  We found the perfect wedding location, Gartenglück Wegendorf, where we fell in love with the 300 year old tree in their courtyard and Hürriyet created a stunning floral garland under the tree’s canopy. Hazel was excited to debut her modeling skills alongside our adorable flower girl and ring bearer, although she was immediately fired after she tried to eat the peony collar we created for her. :(  Stay tuned for part II and Andreas’ behind the scenes video in the coming weeks.

Alicia and Martin married on a gorgeous Saturday in May in a small village in Lower Saxony. Alicia planned the entire celebration on her own and created a magical Alice in Wonderland themed garden tea party reception in her Grandmother’s beautiful garden.  After the ceremony, I think almost the entire population of the village were waiting outside the church to congratulate the newlyweds, which made my heart swell.  It was a day filled with love and Andreas and I had so much fun photographing and filming the day together. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post to watch the highlight video that Andreas filmed (click the HD button and watch on vimeo for best quality).  Thank you again, Alicia and Martin, for entrusting us to document your wedding day, we wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. <3

Anna and Florian’s wedding was a true celebration of joy and love.  They married at Rathaus Schöneberg and celebrated until the wee hours of the morning at the beautiful lakeside location of Blumenfisch am Großen Wannsee.  The weather here in Berlin in May can be a bit unpredictable, but this year it was the beginning of summer weather and the day of Anja and Florian’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous.  Thank you again Anja and Florian for being so much fun to photograph (we got to sneak away for portraits three separate times, which was such a dream!) and for inviting me into your lives to document your wedding day!

London Wedding Photographer (4)

Kristen and Ben married on a gorgeous spring day in London surrounded by their families. When Kristen and I first “met” over skype and she told me she would be wearing a polka-dot Vivienne Westwood dress, I knew we were a great fit.  And seriously, how beautiful does she look in it?!? I have always been a big fan of brides wearing fabulous designer dresses rather than traditional bridal designs, and Kristen told me she was planning on wearing her dress to a wedding she was invited to a few weeks after her own wedding. (genius!) It was an honor and joy to be able to photograph their wedding day and the beautiful garden setting was a dream to take portraits in.  Thank you again, Kristen and Ben for inviting me to London and trusting me to document your day.

Mimi and Peter’s Austrian wedding was the highlight of a week long ski trip in the Austrian Alps with their nearest and dearest who joined them from all over the world to celebrate.  After being together for more than a decade, their wedding was extra special as their friends and families were already so close.  It was such a fun blend of traditions, ending the day with a Chinese tea ceremony to honor Mimi’s heritage.  The scenery was incredible and driving up to the ceremony location, which was literally in the middle of the alps, was breathtaking.  I was blown away by how beautiful the backdrop to their ceremony was. If that wasn’t enough, after a day of unseasonably warm weather and sunshine, like magic, it started to snow the moment Mimi started to walk down the aisle. Thank you, Mimi and Peter, for inviting me to Austria to document your incredible wedding celebration.

Lisbon Travel Photos

When Andreas and I spontaneously booked a flight to Lisbon at the end of March, we were hoping for warm(er) weather and sunshine.  Ironically, right before we left, spring arrived in full force here in Berlin and it was actually warmer in Berlin during the week we spent in Portugal. Nevertheless we were blessed with sunshine almost everyday of our trip, even though our iphones predicted 5 days of rain.  We had the best time exploring the city with our cameras in hand and found lots of inspiration in the architecture and colors.  For once, I didn’t bring my laptop along and we declared the trip a work-free trip (which rarely happens). We basically just planned our days around food and spent the rest of the time walking aimlessly and getting lost (my favorite way to explore a new city).  I only shot around a roll of film and not surprisingly, the film rolls had some of my favorite images.  I will share the digital photos next week on my personal blog, Chasing Heartbeats, so stay tuned for those. :) Lisbon Travel Photo Lisbon Travel Photo Lisbon Portugal Travel Photo Lisbon Portugal Travel Photo

I have said this before, but I just LOVE elopements.  Dejana and Alen married on one of the first spring-like days of the year, when the first of the leaves and blooms had arrived on the trees.  It was the perfect weather for wedding portraits and we had the loveliest stroll around the Tiergarten together.  Their love story is one of the 21st century, old school friends who ended up living on different sides of Europe, who two decades later reconnected over Facebook and fell in love.  When they told me that, I just melted a bit. Made me love technology even a little more (which I didn’t think was possible!)  Congratulations, Dejana and Alen, and thank you so much for inviting me to document your wedding day!

I have been bringing my film camera along to my jobs lately and will definitely be shooting more film at my weddings in 2014.  I fell in love with photography before digital cameras had taken over (now you can all do the math about how old I am :-| ) and I started shooting most of my personal photos on film in the last year and it feels really good to go back to my “roots”.  It has helped me slow down a little bit and I am in love with the grain and look of film.  Here are some of my favorites from a few rolls I got developed last week.
