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.
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.
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.
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.
