Santorini Japanese Wedding

I have always had a thing for Japanese culture. Everything about Japan attracts and fascinates me: the harmony and simplicity of its art and aesthetics, the wisdom and profoundness of its philosophy, the poetic photography of its films, the delicate musicality of its language, and the natural kindness of its people. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that Misa and Kai, whose wedding I was to shoot in Santorini, actually had Japanese roots! The choice of Santorini did not come as a surprise to me, as I was well aware of the popularity of this magnificent volcanic island as a wedding destination – especially among couples from the Far East.

It is always a delight to work with such lovely and sweet-tempered couples; they bring out the best in me and make me wish to do my very best to ensure their wedding photos will make them smile every time they look at them.

Santorini Gem, on the hill near Santo Wines, gazing over the spectacular gulf of the caldera and the endless Aegean blue, was an ideal venue for Misa and Kai’s wedding ceremony. The peaceful, idyllic environment, bathed in the magical Greek light, provided the perfect backdrop for the celebration of their love.
Misa and Kai, I really want to thank you for honouring me with your trust and for allowing me to be part of the incredible experience of your wedding in Santorini!

East meet west wedding in Thailand

The wedding photography of Victoria and Garrett from Krabi, Thailand. They both love sacred Thai ceremony and the beach wedding. Then, they combined the traditional  Thai wedding (water pouring ceremony & the monk ceremony) to the ring exchange on the beautiful beach of Bamboo island, Krabi. The wedding reception was held on the same night at Zeavola resort, Phi Phi island.

A few days later, we went to Huay Toh Waterfall elephant trekking to take a post wedding photography there. Victoria dream of her wedding photo with an elephant. But it was impossible to bring the big animal to the isolated island like Phi Phi and Bamboo island. Then, we had to find more information about the elephant camp in Krabi. At last we found that Huay Toh Waterfall is the best elephant camp which is hiding in the jungle. We booked a private trip for the couple. The photo turn out so beautiful with greenery scene.

Idea for your Wedding invitation. Combine your ” favorites” in your life.

Jan`s First love was his hot red Ducati !

Then one day he met Karin, the woman of his life.

It was clear that he was going to marry Karin, however, his Ducati was not invited to their wedding celebration.

He would be expected to wear a traditional suit instead of his comfortable leather jacket.

And for Karin, she is not the type lady to sprawl on his bike as we often see models do. She does not need to compete with his machine.

Somehow though, they wished to combine these ” two loves”  .  The solution was to make an one hour photo session to create  ” one ” photo for their wedding invitations.

Perfect!

As we live next to a former military runway in Interlaken this would be the location.

Just so happens on that day the weather was beautiful and living a the base of the Jungfrau glacier capped mountains, it was clear to snap a few with the mountains too in the ” wedding dress” .

The wedding day took place later in the year:  a traditional church followed by aperitif and a quiet dinner with their family.

Wedding in Villa Balbianello – Lake Como

I shot a lovely Russian wedding at the fabulous Villa Balbianello in Lake Como area. Oxana and Leonid were so awesome and relaxed. It was a great pleasure working for them and their guests. Everything was perfect from the weather to the ceremony to the music. I got some great images. Enjoy!

Wedding at the Turner Contemporary, Margate

A wedding at the Turner Contemporary is always going to be a bit special. Set in the seaside town of Margate, in Kent, the art gallery only opened it’s doors to weddings 18 months ago, and I’m so pleased they did – it’s big airy windows and clean lines make it such a lovely place to photograph in, and thankfully I finally got my wish to shoot there during Annabel and Ian’s wedding.
