When Julia emailed me to tell me about her wedding plans i was beyond excited. Everything about their weddings plans sounded like the wedding that i would LOVE to photograph. A couple with authenticity, style and adventurous spirit. A free-spirited ceremony on a sailboat followed by a dinner in a private villa in the hills of the Cote d’Azur. See also Julia & Benedikt’s intimate wedding ceremony on the boat sailing the Mediterranean that happened earlier that day. Yellow, white and ocean blues were the colors of this mediterranean summer wedding. The villa wedding happened in the hills of Ventimiglia, with views over Menton and Monaco and the Riviera coastline. The stars were sparkling, the cicadas were buzzing, the mood was dolce vita and the party was going. Just in time for dawn we found an olive grove to go for some relaxed couple portraits. We had about 10 minutes to work with before the light was gone and the mood was one perfect flowing movement of love and taking portraits along the way. My direction is subtle yet always present, always shifting towards feeling an image and capturing the moment rather then shaping everything to rigid perfection. Reflecting my couples.

Villa Wedding at Cote d’Azur.


Mediterranean wedding on a yacht

This bohemian chic celebration has truly been a mediterranean wedding since it was held on a boat sailing the azure blues of the Mediterranean sea. Julia & Benedikt celebrated a free-spirited ceremony on board a catamaran yacht, sailing along the french riviera for the day. The wedding cruise started in Menton and included iconic views of Monaco, Cap’ Ail and Cap Ferret from the sea. Good music, drinks and relaxed vibes included. When the yacht anchored in the bay of Villefranche the very personal ceremony started. Surounded by an intimate circle of family, friends and yachts nearby, the couple chose to start with a ring warming including all of their guest. An incredibly heartwarming ritual, since everyone gets to bless to the rings before the couple exchanges them. After the wedding celebration everyone jumped off board right away which was great fun. I so much loved photographing this wedding from A to Z. Even if the rough waves made it very tricky to stand and photograph from time to time.
