We were so excited to pair up with Marta from Sartoria LoMele for the second shooting past year. What an honour & what a joy to get a day by the fall lake with all these gorgeous ladies! This time we decided to stay rather close by and shoot at a lake down the hill and next to the third  tree on the right, where a lake is the gem of our shoot.

We felt extremely lucky weather wise, since we have pushed the shooting pretty close to the end of fall, hoping each and every day that the colourful leaves would stay up on the trees. Eventually turned into a splendid even warm fall day, with violet sunset and all.

I seriosly could not come up with a better blog post title. Oh Gosh…

This galant fact aside,… There are some wonderful reasons to why more couples choose to get married during the winter season. Some prefer snowy portraits, others have only the time between years to fly in all the family from all over the world, other chose it for health / allergy reasons. What ever your reason for getting married in winter is, here are a couple of tricks on how to make this day more smoothly (and warm) for you.

Plan portrait time according to the sunset time

Talk to your photographer about which kind of images you want and which images would require daylight and then adjust the timeline according to the sunset time. An easy way to make more of the daylight is, to have the portrait session prior to the ceremony. If you opt for a first look, you could also add on some time for portraits and this way get more images before the ceremony as well. Also the assumption that there is too little light in December or January is not true. I have had some of the most photogenic sunsets in winter. 🙂

If I had to describe this couple in just a few words I would say they are a dream. Or even better they are my dream. They care sweetly about each other in tiny ways. Gestures, gazes and words. They know people are what matters most and with that not only family and friends but everybody who is at the wedding. We were humbled and touched by their big, welcoming hearts. In the morning Oli walked in, waving his socks in the air and nervously telling us he still had to put them on. But then he walked over to where we were taking detail shots of the rooms and greeting us with a big bear hug and belly laughter. They were not only grateful, they talked grateful and thus were people after my very own heart. I could not have asked for a sweeter winter couple.

During dinner I had to walk over to their table and swoon how much I loved the music they had seleced. It was italian pop from the past and had my heart sing high. Oli shared how they had always heard this music when cooking together as a family. It were these handcrafted, caring little details which made this day one to remember. Corina & Oli, thank you so much for the honour of photographing the beginning of your marriage!

One Monday night I came home to all the guys of our house hovering over a laser plotter. As it turns out we were running tests on plotting the wedding invitations for Jane & Tobi. What was meant to be a lets calculate the correct plot plan turned into a lets try lasering every surface we find in the house. I mean what else where you doing with your Monday eve?

It is always exciting to have a roomy tying the knot. And as the photographer in the house I am so honoured to document another friend turning his girlfriend into his wife. From the first row during the first look & closest bench in church it is always inevitable for me that I get (almost) equally nervous as my bride and groom.

This wonderful couple had planned a vineyard wedding with plenty of outdoor activities and the heavens look graciously at this plan. It turned out to be the most perfect golden evening with tons of giggles and playing catch me if you can under the pine trees overlooking the valley of vines.

Hold onto your seats because here comes some exciting passion project of ours!!! Ahhh! We have waited for so long to hit publish on this one!

During mid-season in the heat of summer and in-between weddings we drove down to Umbria & Toscana meet up with my friend Marta. She is a designer and seamstress and has organised this wonderful shooting in Narni, a picturesque small town in the Umbrian country side. I could not be more thrilled to show you a tiny glimpse of our wonderful day. And be assured there is more to come.

We had  three models, three gowns and a lot a southern style, golden light & beauty between us. Just a dream come true. You can find more of Marta´s creations on her Sartoria Lo Mele instagram account. And be assured there is more to come 😉
