“Come away o human child!

To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand.

For the world more full of weeping than you can understand.”

- W.B. Yeats, “The Stolen Child”

On a Monday in September I woke up to a message from Rade asking if I could come to Madrid that week to photograph his engagement session and of course my answer was a yes proceeded by lots of exclamation points (!!!!) :) I had the most incredible time exploring the city with Rade and David and was thrilled that I was able to join them. They are such an inspiring couple in so many ways, with their great style, business savvy and love for each other. I cannot wait to see them in Los Angeles in a few weeks and for their wedding in the south of France next year.

At the end of August, Andreas and I photographed a fabulous three day celebration in Munich along with Doreen Winking Weddings and the boys from Vision on Fire. Our lovely bride and groom, were just the sweetest and the weekend’s celebrations were so beautifully styled by Doreen and her team. The ceremony was held on the stunning rooftop of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the heart of Munich with gorgeous 360 degree views of the city. After the ceremony, along with all of the guests, we rode rickshaws through the city to the reception location held at the Haus der Kunst.  The rickshaw ride was such a fun experience for all of the guests and a LOT of fun to photograph. It was also a little dangerous as I was standing up while taking photos on a bike that was racing through the city, but fortunately I had Andreas there to hold on to me and our gear :)  After dinner, they threw one heck of a dance party- with tons of confetti (!!!!), a surprise appearance from Elvis and even a burlesque dancer! These are just a few of my favorite details from the weekend, with all the vendor details at the bottom of the post :)

I am so excited to share part 2 of our Garden Wedding Inspiration Shoot and the whole shoot was featured today on one of my favorite American wedding blogs, Wedding Chicks! We had a great day shooting together and as always it is so inspiring to work with such inspiring vendors. While part 1 of the shoot was a bit more glamorous, the last look was a bit more bohemian and casual. I am in love with that massive bouquet Hurriyet created. Hop over to Wedding Chicks for the whole feature and to read more about some of our inspiration behind the shoot. Check out part I here.

G & C’s wedding was a fabulous two day affair. Most of their guests had traveled from the US to celebrate and they were treated to two of Berlin’s most beautiful wedding venues: the ceremony was held at the Märkisches Museum on Friday, and the reception was at Soho House on Saturday evening. It was a celebration truly filled with love. I am not sure every wedding photographer would agree with me, but one of my most favorite parts of a wedding day are the speeches and toasts made to the couple. The speeches at this wedding were extra amazing, the maid of honor finished her toast with a tap dance she choreographed for her best friend and her new husband, and the groomsmen told the most hilarious stories from their college days with the groom. I was laughing so hard at one point I had to stop taking pictures for a minute to compose myself. Needless to say, it was a really fun wedding to photograph. G & C are not only an absolutely stunning couple, they are so sweet and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Thank you both so much for being such a joy to work with and inviting me to spend the weekend photographing your celebration.

Erin & Paul’s wedding was extra special since we have gotten the chance to spend time together since I photographed their engagement photos almost two years ago in Berlin.  The wedding was incredible, with friends and family from all over the world coming together in Long Beach, California to celebrate Erin and Paul tying the knot. Erin was such a beautiful bride and I just LOVE her Sarah Seven dress, it fit her so perfectly. Along with her bridesmaids, Erin created all of the floral arrangements themselves and I was seriously impressed.  It was a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony and the day ended with an amazing dance party under the stars.  There was even a few minutes of rain at the end of the evening, which is very atypical for August in Southern California, but no one seemed to care.  Thank you again, Erin and Paul for inviting me into your lives and bringing me to California to photograph your wedding day, it was such an honor!
