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.
