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

Evelyn & Dennis -Engagement photo shoot in Pforzheim

One of the most frequent statements I get from couples that I photograph is “we don’t really know what to do in front of the camera” or “what should we do? Can you help us?”. Yes sure, I can and I will help, but you don’t have to be models to get beautiful pictures! All you need to do is to love each other and to not be afraid to show it in front of a photographer. Your love is always “photogenic”, every experienced photographer would tell you this. Evelyn and Denis were not different and told me almost the same. But the result we have gotten shows us just the opposite.

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.

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.

There are those people in your life that you always glad to see, they can easily make you laugh and next to them you can be just yourself. At my last visit to my hometown Kiev I had a chance to photograph a wonderful couple of my good friends – Vitalina and Sergey. I was really glad about this opportunity. We know each other for more than 12 years already and I must say that they had a huge impact on my life, especially Sergey. I am very thankful for people like this in my life. Even thou we can’t see each other very often we still stay close and really open. This connection helped to make as natural photographs as they can only be.
