My First Wedding Shoot (Nearly)

Hi everybody! Today I’m posting photos of the scariest thing to photograph… ever. Yes, its a wedding!

Most will know that my style of photography is mostly from the hip – travel photography. Personally I think wedding photography is the most difficult subject, it has to be artistic, technically perfect, you must catch every moment, deal with light, and all while not forgetting the uncle.  Needless to say, it has been intimidating… I did a few photos of a wedding before, but not too many.

I was asked by the amazing Alex Hahn whether I could a be a second shooter for a wedding she was photographing. I foolishly agreed. On the day however, all misconceptions were cleared.

 

Enter Alexandra and Matthias Linder! I was introduced to this amazing couple, I started the morning with Alexandra getting ready at home. Was great fun.

A little later I met Matthias and also photographed him getting ready – rather differently.

We had then arranged a few locations to shoot, and of course this meant the couple meeting for the first time.

After the photo sessions, we headed to the Weiskirche, a famous church in the area. A bit congratulations to Alexandra and Matthias. It was a beautiful wedding, and a great day out!
