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.

When Hurriyet, Lena, and I began brainstorming our next styled shoot we had so many ideas that we had to split our inspirations into several shoots.  We had a vision of a really modern bride that reflects the style of the stylish and creative people of Berlin. We dreamed of a wintery wedding inside with a black and white color palette and deep red flowers.  We knew we wanted a really unique wedding location and the Malzfabrik was our first pick. We fell madly in love with the Maschinenhalle (Machine Hall) and its black and white tiled floor.  We had the best time putting together the shoot and I hope you enjoy the images. Stay tuned for the second half of images later this week and check out my little behind the scenes video at the bottom of the post :)

Wishing you all the happiest of Valentines Days!  Do you have anything special planned?  I am a firm believer that we should celebrate love everyday, but it is certainly fun to give some extra love on the day of love.

Last week I had the chance to photograph some Valentines Day floral inspiration created by my dear friend Hürriyet of Botanic Art Floral and Event Design.  Hop on over to her blog to see more images and a special Valentines Day post featuring one of my favorite wedding quotes :)

First, I want to wish you belated HAPPY NEW YEAR!  The last few weeks have been crazy busy with a trip back to California to celebrate Christmas with family and friends, houseguests from the US to ring in 2014, and moving to a new apartment. Needless to say, things have been pretty quiet online in recent weeks, but I have lots to share and so many exciting things planned for 2014, including a bunch of amazing weddings around the world(!!!), but first, a little review of the past year :)

Looking back at 2013, I cannot help but feel incredibly blessed by my amazing clients, wedding industry friends, and of course my super supportive family. I have said it before, but working as a wedding photographer is such a gift. Being able to celebrate alongside your clients and photograph them on what is undoubtedly one of the best days of their lives is amazing, and I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to call this my job. Looking back on the year, I have to say a HUGE thank you to my 2013 brides and grooms for inviting me into your lives to document your wedding days and to all my heartbeats session clients for making every shoot SO much fun.  I had such a hard time narrowing down images to share, but here are just a few of my favorites.

Arianne and Phil’s wedding was held on the most lovely late fall day.  After several (typical) very grey, rainy days in Berlin, the day of their wedding was sunny and just lovely, and we were blessed the most beautiful pre-sunset sunshine during our portraits in Potsdam’s stunning Park Sanssouci.  Their reception was held at Osteria Maria, in Berlin’s  Steglitz neighborhood, which was just a dream to photograph with the room almost entirely lit by candlelight.  Arianne and Phil brought a Japanese wedding tradition to Germany and had made a thousand paper cranes, which lined the walls of the room and created such beautiful wedding decor.   Thank you again, Arianne and Phil, for asking me to celebrate and photograph your wedding day, it was such a joy to be there.

I have written before about what amazing things blogging has brought me in the last few years, but I am most thankful for the lovely friends I have met through writing a blog.  Most of my friends here in Germany I have met in some way or another online. At our thanksgiving celebration last week I had to laugh when someone asked how I had met each of my friends.  Besides Andreas and a few friends from his hometown, pretty much everyone there I had connected with first online.  And blog friends really are the best.  Casey is a fellow expat living from the US, who writes a blog detailing life abroad and some amazing travels she and her husband take around Europe.  They wanted some photos around Wiesbaden where they have spent the last few years, before the head back to the US this spring.  Not only are David and Casey incredibly photogenic, they are just the SWEETEST couple.  I think we spent a big majority of the afternoon laughing as they showed me around town.  The day I spent in Wiesbaden with them, we were so lucky with unseasonably warm weather and stunning fall foliage on display.  Autumn might just be my favorite time to take portraits outside.  Those colors make me oh so happy.  It is days like this that I really cannot believe this is my job, and feel oh so thankful for the amazing couples my job connects me with.  Thank you Casey and David for showing me around your adopted hometown and for being so much fun to photograph!
