After more than decade together, Lillith and Elia tied the knot surrounded by their loved ones during a fabulous three-day weekend wedding celebration at a beautiful estate in the German countryside. Landgut Stober was a stunning venue for the wedding, located an hour outside of Berlin. It was the perfect weekend getaway for their guests who traveled from around Europe to celebrate their commitment. Mary Lennox created the most beautiful garden-like atmosphere inside the reception space, wrapping each of the steel beams with orchids, roses and lush greenery and stunning spring garden arrangements on each of the tables. The decor was a surprise for the sweet couple and they, along with their guests, were totally blown away when they walked in the door for dinner. Two giant floral peacocks greeted guests at the lakeside ceremony, perched at either side of the aisle. This was not only a stunning celebration, but one filled with love for the young couple, who had known one another since they were babies, and was truly an honor for us to photograph. This Landgut Stober Hochzeit was published on Style Me Pretty, check out the post here.

It was so much fun to collaborate with sweet Emily of Fleuropean while she was also escaping the European winter in California. The timing was perfect as her niece was just one week old so we got to photograph her as well :) How adorable is she all wrapped up in Jasmine?! Emily is so incredibly talented, and back home in Belgium she grows all of her own flowers, which is pretty much my dream. I cannot wait to get the chance to work with her again soon! Make sure to check out her Instagram!

Andreas and I spent such a fun evening with Carrie, Ty and sweet baby Waylon on a warm February evening in the hills of San Luis Obispo, California.

I LOVE shooting at sunrise: the light is soft and golden, no one is around to photobomb, and the world is quiet. I typically cringe asking clients to wake up at sunrise for their session and it doesn’t always work with schedules, but is ALWAYS worth the lack of sleep. One benefit to the dreaded Berlin winter is the 8am sunrise means we can take advantage of the gorgeous morning light without the middle-of-the-night wake up call. Sarah & Yannik were the sweetest couple to work with and even though they both froze their tails off during the shoot (it was below freezing & -5C) they didn’t complain at all! I was shivering while wearing lots of layers and gloves, I can only imagine how cold they were! Can’t wait for their second engagement session in the spring, when none of us get frostbite :)
