How to find the perfect Wedding Photographers

11 May

Today I am very honored to introduce to you someone very special: Our Weddingphotographers Cathrin Meyer and Manuel Thomé from pure wedding.

When we first started to plan our wedding last year in August, we didn’t plan a lot of our budget for a good photographer because we thougt, everybody is capable of taking some nice wedding pictures. We were soooo wrong!

Then I discovered all the wonderful wedding blogs on the internet and was absolutely stunned about all the wonderful pics from the real weddings there. That was when I had second thoughts about our planning and was sure, we needed real Pros for the job. I wanted this gorgeous photo art for our wedding as well.

I have to say that special modern wedding photography that you have in the US very often is not so easy to find here. I got a little frustrated doing my research, because I saw a lot of pics that weren’t creative, not made “with love” or just very oldfashioned (and I don’t mean in a cool Retro way).

But luckily one day I stumbled upon  Hochzeitsfotografen Deluxe, a platform where one of the best German wedding photographers are combined.

That’s where I found Cathrin and Manuel.

We met with them in their atelier and it klicked at the first moment, because they are so nice and cool people, just our age and they immediately understood what we wanted. A wedding day is so intimate and you will be so nervous, so I think it is a great bonus, when your photographers are not only masters in their craft (which is indispensible anyway) but they are also cool und lovely people. Don’t book a photographer, when you don’t connect on a personal level, this is my advice.

Manuel was so nice to send me brandnew pics from a bridal shoot he just did in the desert outside Vegas, when he was there to visit the World’s biggest Fair for wedding photography. Aren’t the pictures just awesome?

Check out the pure wedding website for more pics from this fantastic Shooting and other great Real Wedding Photography.

Thanks to you, Cathrin and Manuel, for sharing.

A surprise wedding that touched my heart

20 Apr

Hello everyone! I feel so honored to share the most gorgeous wedding with you today.  It touched my Bride-to-be-heart so much and inspired me on so many levels. Amy Moss from eatdrinkchic and her husband Mark surprised their guests with a wedding ceremony during their “engagement party”. Isn’t that the coolest idea you ever heard? Beyond that the whole wedding is such an inspiration and full of eye candy. Where should I start? The super sweet decoration, the delicious food, all the happy faces… It goes on and on. Super talented photographer Jonathan Ong captured the day. Have a look and melt away.

What a cheerful wedding crowd. AWESOME!

I love this detail of the flowers in the hanging bottles. And how yummy the food looks (and tasted, I bet)

I am out of words for this picture. Pure love!

Wonderful pictures Amy and Mark, thank you so much for sharing. May your marriage always be so joyful as your wedding day.

You can check out more details on Amys wonderful blog eatdrinkchic and on the website of amazing photographer Jonathan Ong.

Awesome photography

9 Apr

Today I am very happy and thankful, that I can share with you pictures of a former colleague of mine, Sascha Gröhl from Vitamedia-Foto. We worked together as editors for a TV Show a long time ago and Sascha became a very successful director and photographer. When I saw his photos for the first time I was abolutely blown away. His pictures are so lively and cool. He has recently also started shooting weddings, I am so looking forward to that. But for today have a look at some of his gorgeous pics.

I love the story behind the first two shots: This guy meets his group of friends on Coney Island just to talk once a week since 1965 (!!!). Isn’t that incredible? (he holds an old picture of them, where you can see there was snow on the Island)

And that’s the Gang, how cute!

Awesome

That’s my absolute favorite pic. How cool are the poodles?

Thank you, Sascha, for sharing. Be sure to check out more supercool photography on his Website and you can also read about his filmprojects here.
