The Best of 2016

The Best of 2016

Hi everyone! The 2016 is over and it is time to have a look at how it was. I’ve made a small selection of some of my favorite photographs from the last year. Choosing them was a hard task indeed: it is probably not even 0,5 percent from the total amount of wedding pictures that I took in 2016. The main criteria was to select from the couple shootings only. Just the two of them…mostly.

It was a great year, I got to know many wonderful people and photograph their love ♥

I love what I do and can’t wait to see what the 2017 will bring. #followyourpassion

Verena & Simon – After wedding shooting near Pforzheim

Verena & Simon – After wedding shooting near Pforzheim

Hi friends. Just a little while ago I posted an after wedding photo shoot in the Schwarzwald forest but this time I took my beautiful couple Verena and Simon to a bright and open place near by Pforzheim. I came there in the morning to check timings and Sun’s position for our shoot so I could know exactly when to start it. (I used one of the many apps for smartphones that allow you to see where and when the Sun will be in a “live view”). The light and location were perfect, Verena and Simon looking gorgeous. Couldn’t be better.

Daniela & Raphael – Forest and Smoke – After wedding shoot in Schwarzwald

An After Wedding photo shooting is a wonderful possibility to make some extraordinary photographs. You can do it anywhere you want using the best location that comes to your mind, the best weather and time of the day. If you would ask me about the only one advice for your wedding – an after wedding shoot would be it.

This time it was something special. Daniela and Raphael wanted to have some pictures in the beautiful nature of Southern Germany and my location suggestion was the Schwarzwald forest. I personally love forest very much and I happy that I live at a beautiful place surrounded with it. For our photo shoot I also got some smoke bombs (totally safe for people and the environment) to give it a bit wilder feel. I think they did the job wonderfully.

Katya & Sasha – adventurous elopement shoot

Katya & Sasha – adventurous elopement shoot

There are people in your life that are more than just friends, they are family; those people that you would do anything for them and they would do anything for you. Katya and Sasha are such people in my life. We know each other for a long time, we have been through many things together.
Unfortunately when they were getting married I could not make it to be there with them and also to take any pictures. Since then I have been dreaming to make a beautiful photo shoot for Katya and Sasha. And some weeks ago it was finally possible to do. We went to a nice field near their house and used the best time of the day for our shoot. I wanted it to be intimate, emotional, fun and real at the same time, just like the guys are. And I think we did it just so.

Hooray! We have launched our new project for wedding planing and wedding photography in Paris and entire France! Meet the Marry Me Paris! Go check it out. It is only in Russian for now but very soon we are going to make an English version as well.

Especially for this purpose (to start a new wedding project in France) last August our team went to Paris to make several after wedding photo and video shoots. I’ve been fortunate to meet wonderful people and also very talented photographer Olga Murenko, wedding cinematographer Max Tuzhilin and wedding planer Olga Prokopieva and to become a part of their team.
