“Every relationship is unique.
Every wedding is special.
I photograph them just as they are –
authentic and real.
I create memories which will tell
the story of your love.”

European Destination Wedding Photographer Oleg Tru

Hello there, I am Oleg

I am a  European destination wedding photographer from Pforzheim (Black Forest), Germany and I truly love to photograph people madly in love.

I am fortunate to follow my passion and able to do what I like the most: traveling to beautiful places around the world and meet new people, witness wonderful moments of their love and capture them with my camera. Nature is a huge part of my life and I use every chance to explore it. Destination weddings and adventurous elopements are some of my favorite.

Love is the great adventure. It is not perfect, it is real and absolutely worth of the journey! Just like a wedding, just like our life.

Haldmühle zu Bissersheim Wedding – Linnea & Christian

I love international weddings because they have a whole mix of cultures and traditions, ways how people celebrate it and how they behave. This Swedish-German in particular at Haldmühle zu Bissersheim Wedding Location was no exception! Since I’ve arrived and till the moment I left, I felt a very friendly and open atmosphere created by Linnea, Christian and their families.

Villa Schönborn Wedding – Giusi & Giuseppe

To be honest the best way for me to photograph a wedding is, as not as a “photo shoot”. It should feel more like you are hanging out with one of your friends who just happens to be a professional photographer. Villa Schönborn Wedding of amazing Giusi and Giuseppe was exactly like this and I loved it!

Nillhof Black Forest Wedding

Nature is a huge part of my life, especially forest and mountains. I have never thought that I will actually live in a national park. Moreover, not just any other park but the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) itself. Since 2015, we are blessed to live at the northern part of it and I have totally fallen in love with this place. I did an engagement not far from my home, and I was really looking forward to photographing my first real Black Forest Wedding.

Corsica (France) Wedding Shooting

Have you ever been to Corsica? I think you should, simply Google it – it has such a fantastic mounty landscape, white sand beaches and old beautiful cities. Meanwhile, take a look at some of the images from my Corsica (France) wedding shooting, that I took during the wedding photography workshop which we organized together with Aida & Tim.

Right after we landed at Bastia, rented a car and went to Calvi, I fell in love with this incredible island. Above all, I like mountains, forest and sea – Corsica has it all! In my opinion, it is a great location for a wedding or an adventurous elopement.

Pforzheim Engagement Shoot

One of the things that make my feel complete and happy is nature. In other words, I cannot imagine myself living in a huge “concrete jungle” any more. Right now, I live at the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in Germany and I am very blessed to have this opportunity. That is to say, it is no wonder I chose this beautiful forest as a location for our Pforzheim engagement shoot with Sabrina and Jan.

Sardinia (Italy) Destination Engagement Shoot

When I was getting my engineering degree (yes, I studied for almost 6 years in a tech university, however never worked as an engineer ever after, but this is a different story) I met Lisa and we became very good friends through all the study time. My passion for photography started back in those days and Lisa always told me that I should photograph her wedding when she will have one. Sure! But, you know how the life is, we moved to different countries and did not have many opportunities to meet.

Meanwhile, I got a text from her boyfriend Andrew and imagine my surprise when he asked me if I were willing to make a Sardinia (Italy) engagement shoot for them! Certainly I am! We have fixed the date and I went to Cagliari. 

Corsica (France) Elopement

Man, I can’t tell you enough how much I loved this Corsica elopement photo shoot! In other words, everything was exactly how I like it, everything was just perfect: our wonderful Bella & Ben (just real and fun married couple, with no modeling experience except for our first shooting day in Corsica) did such a great job, it was so easy to photograph their love and feelings to each other. Most importantly, they were open and did not care much about a camera pointed in their direction.

Faroe Islands Adventurous Elopement – Part 1

From the first moments at the Faroe Islands I felt like I am at another planet… Everything is different, everything is shocking beautiful… and calm. I couldn’t be more excited about our 4 day Faroe Islands adventurous elopement! This was definitely an adventure!

Lera & Jura wanted to do something special after their official wedding at home,.. something, that they would remember for the rest of their lives. And I am very grateful they asked me to tell their story with my camera. It is a beautiful, intimate and a fun one. Join us through the 4 Parts of our journey!

Faroe Islands Adventurous Wedding Shooting – Part 2

Welcome back! (I guess  you have already seen The First Part, however if you didn’t – definitely go check it out before you continue reading this post). The second part of our Faroe Islands adventurous wedding shooting takes us through the wonderful locations of this incredible place. This time it is all about the white dress, messy hair and amazing view.

Firstly, we are heading to the Dúvugarðar at Saksun, where a beautiful valley ends with a blue lake. In addition to this, the send on the beaches of this lake has a quite unique grey-black color…

Faroe Islands Adventurous Elopement – Part 3

The previous parts (Part 1 & Part 2) of our Faroe Islands Adventurous Elopement were about intimacy and a extravagant white wedding dress. This time let’s bring some color to our story! Most importantly, I would like to give credit to Lera & Jura for bringing 3 different outfits to such a remote place and carrying them all the time around. In addition, I must say they are not models and have never done a shooting like this before. However, they did an amazing job and tried everything I asked them to. Guys, you are are awesome! Certainly, I am looking forward to our next adventure together.

Faroe Islands Couple Shoot – Part 4

Love is the great adventure. It is not perfect, but it is real, exciting and fun. At least this is how I see it. Being able to share a journey with some else is a wonderful gift. In addition, my passion as a wedding photographer allows me to witness many beautiful journeys like this and tell a story of their love.

This last part of our Faroe Islands couple shoot with Lera & Jura takes us again through beautiful places around Faroe Islands, such as Tórshavn, Klaksvík and Drangarnir. That is to say, this is what was happening in between of our white and red dresses, so to speak.
