Anaïs & Ramon – Mas Marroch

This beautiful couple picked some really beautiful spaces to celebrate their wedding. The ceremony was held in a pretty old church in Llagostera. Afterwards, everyone moved to Mas Marroch in Girona. This elegant venue is one of those places where every corner hides a pleasant surprise. The cocktail reception was held in an astonishing wooden-roof pergola. In the evening, an open-air candle light dinner was served in the secluded old garden by the main vila. A treat was not just nice on the eye, famous Michelin Star Chefs – the Roca brothers managed to please those with the most discerning palate.

Gill and Chris brought their friends and families all the way from Scotland to celebrate their wedding day under the blue skies of Spain. And they hit the bull´s-eye! Everyone was amazed with the venue Casa Felix, the food and with how stunning the bride looked. It was one of those weddings where everything goes as planned and exceeds expectations. On top of that, it was Sant Joan, the longest day of the year and a magical night of celebration here in Catalunya! If that was not enough, it coincided with Chris’s birthday! Que vivan los novios! Lang may yer lum reek!

Hey! Let´s go to Sitges!

Hey! Let´s go to Sitges!

A destination wedding is what turns a one-day celebration into a unique adventure. It is like a big scale family trip with a twist! Sabrina and Frank could not have picked better. The wedding was held in a church by the sea in Sitges and the rest of the celebration took place in Casa Felix, a magnificent villa lost in the vineyards of Garraf. There was even some time for a quick drink a in a chiringuito by Sitges beach.

 

                                             

So, hey, let´s all go to Sitges! And let this wicket theme from the 80s take us there again and again! Give it a go!

Engagement Session in Barcelona

Engagement Session in Barcelona

You never get bored of this city. Barcelona is both, visually attractive and extremely photogenic. It is a city with personality. To a photographer, it offers a multitude of backgrounds, textures, and an unusual light that changes completely throughout the day. It is modern and traditional, busy and intimate. It reveals an eclectic mixture of old, historic monuments, vibrant day life, multicultural habitants, and the most impressive Art Nouveau architecture (here called Modernisme). Moreover, you can easily change your perspective and admire the city from above by climbing one of many viewpoints (here called Miradores). Barcelona is surrounded by mountains: Montjüic and Tibidabo and some neighbourhoods were build on hills: El Carmel, Horta, Guinardo. If that was not enough, there is plenty of green in Gaudi´s Parque Güell and plenty of salty water at Barceloneta´s beach.

With this unlimited variety of locations, photographing couples in Barcelona is never the same, even if I get to return to the same places. For me, each session is a completely different experience, because every couple has its own energy and style and they interact differently with the surrounding. My idea is to capture those differences and to reflect the essence of each couple in the photographs.

I met with Fu and Chen early in the morning, to photograph them in the old Gothic quarter, before the city fully woke up. Most popular areas tend to get crowded after breakfast, but we got lucky and had some parts of it to ourselves. Beforehand, we planned together a very intense schedule for the day. We decided to photograph in 4 different locations, but also wanted to change outfits and the stylisticks. Parque Güell was our second location, and Chen wore her wedding dress for this occasion. To complement the day, we wondered around the busy streets of Born. The strong afternoon sun and the red dress set perfectly against the old walls of the city. At the end, we moved down to the beach, to end our session bare feet on the sand.

Behind the scenes stories

Behind the scenes stories

 

It was one of those weddings, which takes a slide towards the wild side before it even starts. I loved it from the very beginning. Everywhere I looked, there was something I wanted to photograph, so many little stories within the big picture.

Ruben and Montse, the happy couple, are parents of two girls: Mariona (a natural born model) and Blanca (an unusually independent 2 year old, who wondered around and socialised with everybody requiring no supervision whatsoever). There were about 20 kids at this wedding. Beautiful chaos!

The ceremony was held in a tiny stone church and wedding guests took over its every available surface. The couple was sated in front of the priest. It was steaming hot, dark and I could hardly move.

I had to quickly adapt a strategy here, because it was obvious that moving around to try out different angles and perspective was out of question.

I found a spot with good visibility and brought three large aperture lenses to be able to change the focal range without having to move much. Then, I put all my money on Montse and Rubens reactions. I already knew, they were very spontaneous, emotional and expressive. I did not have to wait long for the children to get bored and move towards the altar. They were looking for attention and entertainment, and luckily for me, had no shame.

In this particular photo, Mariona is trying to attract her parents’ looks and her cousin is trying to get her attention. Naughty but cute!
