Linda + Viktors // Europe elopement

Linda was the visionary behind the photoshoot. When she proposed black clothes, with a feather crown in the middle of nowhere, I fell in love immediately. We managed to find the perfect location for Linda's vision by pure luck. We knew of a quarry that we thought could work, but when we arrived we found that entry was prohibited. Linda called the number on the sign and worked her magic on the phone. To my surprise, they let us in and voila! We got access to an unreal place for what was supposed to be half an hour (or so Linda said to the man on the phone) but was more like 2+ hrs.

Linda and Viktors climbed up the high sand hills holding hands and I was able to capture some stunning pictures. It was a romantic evening, and everything we had hoped for! I would never get bored photographing these two, they are always fun and energised, with creative and daring minds. It was a thrill to bring Linda's vision to life.

Summer Lee + Sven // Frankfurt

Sven and I met at University during our last semester. We subscribed to the same course and I came a little too late on the first day. We both thought that the other one is quite attractive the second we saw each other. But we were just friends for quite a long time.
We are in our very early thirties and living und enjoying our life to the fullest in Frankfurt am Main. Our hobby is to travel the world together and get to know all the amazing places on earth.
I force him to take quite a lot of pictures of - and - with me to share the love for beautiful things on my Instagram account.
What makes our relationship truly unique is that we embrace the differences of our cultural backgrounds. I am Chinese and he is Croatian and we have so much love and respect for the other culture and we try our best to embrace these differences in our everyday life.

Europe wedding // Vinita + Artis

This year was the hottest summer in European history. The was no threat of rain with +34 degree temperatures in the shady spots! Vinita and Artis wanted their wedding to be friendly and homely, so they chose to have it in their family home with the ceremony out the front of the house. The mood was natural, traditional, simple, like a garden party, with no rush to get out on the next day. 

There were laughs to be had when the old Russian car (Moskvich) decided not to start, which was supposed to carry Vinita, the bride, to the venue. Luckily there was a spare car to drive. These little hiccups make great stories, and it's nice when the parties involved see the funny side. 

I love weddings with a traditional, family-centered vibe. After living abroad for so long time, I can appreciate the atmosphere and made sure to capture it in the photos.  

Have you ever experienced the Latvian tradition ritual “mičošana”? During this ritual, the bride and groom say goodbye to their single status. It starts at midnight and usually the bride and groom will wear hats to symbolise becoming wife and husband.
