There is no limit to what is possible in wedding photography, only our imagination. There is no standard or template that we have to follow. We can do anything, literally anything we want: we can travel across the world to a once-in-a-lifetime location or we can choose a nearby forest. This is all up to us, this is all up to you.
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.
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!
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.
