Garden wedding in the Rain

Garden wedding in the Rain

When we arrived to Maude´s family house in Grasse- France, Manu, the groom, was waiting for us by the driveway. Many friends and family members were already there and they have just finished eating their lunch in the garden. This very same garden was to host a wedding celebration later this evening.

It was a hot summer day, but you could feel storm in the air. It was going to rain without a shred of doubt.  Despite the prediction, every single person gathered in this beautiful old garden shared the same carefree holiday mood. There was a big protective tent installed all over the tables and the dance floor. It was meant to be an outdoor garden wedding and no rain was going to spoil it. Just as everyone went to get ready for church, the heavens opened!

As if on request, the rain stopped for an hour, when the bride was about to come out of the house. It poured again as we all arrived back from the church. Despite all this water, this garden wedding turned into a fantastic part. No one seemed to care that, by the end of the night, the white wooden dance floor looked just like the rest of the muddy garden. Some guests abandoned their shoes and danced knee-deep in the mud as if it was brought there for their pleasure.

Dinner under the stars

Dinner under the stars

This was an elegant “haute couture” wedding designed with style and a great taste!  Every little detail mattered to Maria, the bride to be!

“She thought it all through and had it all under control” – Hugo, the future groom assured us.

When you have a clear vision of what your wedding should look like, do not conform, be persistent and have it your way! Maria managed to have a little chapel opened just for them, she insisted on replacing traditional name cards with carefully selected stones and despite the rain prediction she hosted an outdoor candle diner under the stars. She even kept the wedding venue a secret until the very end.

The most important thing about planning your wedding is to know that the planning ends when the wedding day begins! Maria and Hugo found the happy medium and proved that it is possible to have your perfect wedding vision come true and still fully enjoy playing the leading role on the big day.

They knew how to live and appreciate every single moment! They laughed and cried and danced and laughed even more!

They carefully picked a team of professionals and put themselves in their hands. The wedding planner Claudia & co. from Entre Tonos Pastel was on top of every single detail. The cheery stuff from the venue Xalet del Nin made everyone feel welcome and at home. The catering Sensacions prepared sensational cocktail and dinner under the stars of the Mediterranean Sea.

It was nothing but perfect!

Andreu! Que si estamos recuperados? IMPOSIBLE!!! Seguimos eufóricos, emocionados, flipados,…en definitiva FELICES. Ni en nuestros mejores sueños podíamos imaginar algo así. Y tus fotos DE ESCÁNDALO!! No nos equivocamos en absoluto con el feeling que nos transmitiste desde el primer momento. Esperamos que hayáis disfrutado tanto como nosotros de todos y cada uno de los momentos de nuestro día. Nos sentimos inmensamente felices de haberos tenido en nuestro equipo.”

Maria and Hugo

Se casa la hija de un motero!

Se casa la hija de un motero!

Cuando Mireia escogía su coche de novia no esperaba que de camino a la boda la seguiría un convoy de motos. Esta sorpresa la puso en marcha su padre motero y no se equivocó! Los pitos de los cláxones y el zumbido de los motores no sólo hicieron reír a su hija, pero sobre todo distendieron todos los nervios. Mireia salió de su barrio con un apoyo multitudinario y ensordecedor. Los invitados que la esperaban en el Mas de Can Riera escuchaban los motores subiendo la montaña y la emoción en el ambiente aceleró al máximo. Dos motos guiaron el Rolls-Royce blanco hasta el pasillo desde donde Carlos, el novio, miraba a su prometida emocionado. Todos quedaron impresionados con esta entrada tan atrevida. Después de una ceremonia muy emotiva y personal, el día siguió sin interrupciones, pero el nivel de exaltación no bajo hasta el final! wedding el mas de can riera, wedding barcelona, boda en hotel

Destination Wedding in Tuscany

Destination Wedding in Tuscany

I met Florin Stefan (https://florinstefan.ro/) for the second time at the Fearless Conference 2019 in Aachen (https://www.fearlessphotographers.com/). The conference is always a nice opportunity to see friends from all over the world again and share our photographic experiences with each other.

With Florin, we got to talk about our plans for 2019. He told me he was traveling to Italy in May to photograph a wedding in Tuscany. Obviously, immediately I offered myself immediately to come as a second photographer and he quickly agreed.

So here we were in Tuscany, pouring rain under the cloudy sky. But this didn’t affect anyone’s attitude or mood. That´s one of the things I love more about destination weddings. Everyone is there on holidays but on top of that, they have the opportunity to enjoy a wedding with family and friends in a completely different context as they usually would. The bride and groom, Rumanians based in The Netherlands, they got a good mix of friends from back home and from all over the world.

From the very beginning everyone made me feel very welcome and part of the team. One of the things I love the most about being a second shooter at a wedding is that you can take off your back the responsibility that comes as the main shooter. You are there to help in anyway you can, but also to enjoy and have fun photographing, almost as doing it for pleasure. You can find angles, perspectives and moments that otherwise, being the main photographer; you wouldn´t always have the time and the patience to spot.

The weather forecast wasn´t very optimistic, but that didn´t stop the bride and groom to have an outdoor wedding. It was an orthodox ceremony and I loved it. It is always very interesting to see different kinds of religious celebrations rather than the ones we are used to.  It´s a privilege to observe and learn from different cultures and traditions by being an spectator in such an important day of their life and also to have the luxury to capture it.

By the time we were ready for the cocktail, Florin had already ordered the clouds to open up (there is nothing he cannot achieve) and we enjoyed the last rays of sunshine before dinner. By the end everyone was ready to party to commemorate these amazing few days in Tuscany.

Cada hombre lo lleva a su manera, pero una cosa no cambia nunca. Siempre hay electricidad en el aire, casi como en el vestuario del teatro, donde el protagonista se pone el maquillaje antes de estrenar la obra.

Interview from Wedding Photography Select

Interview from Wedding Photography Select

Read the entire interview here: Wedding Photographer Spain Andreu Doz Andreu Doz Photography a wedding photographer based in Spain shares his work with us today in our wedding photography spotlight feature. Andreu received his first camera in high school and realised photography was going to be a big part of his life, so he took himself to London and studied photography at the Goldsmith University. Andreu loves shooting weddings and has shot over one hundred and sixty wedding to date. Do you have a recent favorite photo that you have taken? Tell us how you took it and why you like it? Apart from photographing all the big moments, I really like to look, where no one else is looking and see things no one else is paying attention to. For me, those moments are equally important. I took this photo at my last wedding. It was a rainy day and the ceremony was moved under a roof of an old stable. It was packed and this little boy climbed up the window to watch the events from a different perspective. When I saw it I decided to give him his very own spot in this wedding story. What really gets you emotional when you’re shooting a wedding? I am an observer, in life and at work – I prefer to stay in the shadows. This is why I do not like to stage my photographs. It makes me uncomfortable to tell people what to do, and I think it makes them uncomfortable too. This is why I always wait for them to show their real emotions. This is what attracts me most in photographing weddings. All those opportunities to witness and capture true joy, affection, kindness, passion, and unity. Preserving an emotion in a photo, it really gets me. How do you put a couple at ease before and during their big day? I believe that the key here is to get to know them, and to let them know me. I make an effort to establish a connection with all my couples before the wedding. We meet several times. If they are up for it, I photograph them before the wedding day, in relaxed and casual circumstances. It really helps if they know what to expect. This way they can be themselves in my presence. If it is impossible to meet, due to long distance between us, we Skype and I explain how the wedding day looks from my perspective. I also try to learn as much as possible about them to be able to tell their story honestly. What is it about being a wedding photographer you love? I love being on the move. I have always preferred to learn from experience, and this job gives me so many opportunities to travel the world, to meet real people, to see how they live and to share their happiness. Each wedding season is a crazy, busy time for me. It feels like getting on a rollercoaster, and a different one each year. What is it about being a wedding photographer that you don’t love so much? Hmm….this is the toughest question you ask. I keep coming back to it and I do not know what to answer. What photography kit do you have in your bag & what is your favourite? Canon Body 5Ds, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II, Canon 24-70mm II f/2.8, Canon 70-200mm II f/2.8, Canon 35mm f/1.4, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 85mm f/1.8, Canon 20mm f/2.8, Canon Fisheye 15mm f/2.8, Canon 135mm f/2. I love all my lenses, but I have a special relationship with my Canon 70-200mm II f/2.8. What is your favourite part of the day? I really like to photograph people arriving to the ceremony. This moment is full of electricity and anticipation. I also love the moment when the ceremony ends and everyone gathers to greet the couple, hug them, laugh together, share their joy and show their love. This is when all the stress and tension give room to pure happiness. What tips would you give a couple on choosing a wedding photographer? Two things: mutual understanding and connection. Make sure you pick the style you like, research well, ask all the questions you need, and let the photographer know your expectations. Make sure you actually like the wedding photographer as a person. He or she will be with you in a very private and often stressful situation, so it is essential that you feel good in her or his presence. Why do you think couples choose you? I have noticed that all couples that choose me have one thing in common, they all say they search for an honest and natural documentation of their wedding. I think this is exactly what they see in my pictures and this is the kind of photography I have to give. How do you relax when you’re not shooting weddings? Most of the year I am on the move, my work and my private life blend together and they hardly ever separate. When I stop, I like to hang in a hammock in my garden and spend time with my four cats and a dog. What are you looking forward to and why? To be honest, I just want to keep doing what I do – photographing weddings all over the globe.
