Summer Wedding at Cloud and at the Alster Riverside

Today I would like to show you a wedding that I was allowed to accompany in summer 2015. The wedding couple got married at Michel’s being Hamburg’s biggest cathedral. Afterwards the wedding party was invited to a skybar called Clouds. Portraits had been shot in their garden incorporating the funny dogs and their beloved Vespa.
The reception took place at Portonovo where the bride got surprised by an individual written love song.

Second Shooter was Natalia Cury.


A Wedding in Hamburg at the “Kleines Jacob”

At the Bildpoeten blog you could already see a lot of photographs from this reportage, but on my wedding blog I didn’t wanted to keep them from you, too. It was not my first time as a wedding photographer at the Louis C. Jacob, but it was my premiere in the little Jacob (Kleines Jacob). The little Jacob is a wine bar in which you can celebrate in a very familiar atmosphere. I definitely liked it very much! For the perfect makeup and great hairstyle cared Jenny from Katharina Jasinski Wedding. The fact that the two of them are kissing on almost every wedding portray is totally normal ;-) And for the monkeys…that’s a different story.


Wedding Photo Shooting

Kristina and Matthias won the second price on our wedding fair LOVE | Hamburg in January 2014. The price was a shooting made by me. Early in the morning, I met the freshly married couple in a wonderful location called „Speicherstadt“ in Hamburg, Germany. Kristina wore a fancy noni dress and Matthias came a little bit more casual. You can see a few impressions about the shooting here.


Colorful Socks and Fireworks

The trend to wear colourful socks to an elegant smoking – you can see it everywhere. Originally this trend came from England (like lots of design trends in the male fashion industry). English men wear colored socks to smokings since the twenties. Regarding today’s wedding, the men wore magenta socks to a Brioni Smoking, matching reverse jewelry and weddingbouqets. In the beginning there were a few rain drops, but later it lightened up and we had the best weather for the shooting. We decided for a shooting in the Schanze („Schanzenviertel“). As a wedding photographer you already know all the parks and spots in Hamburg and they are beautiful, but it is always nice to try something different. The fireworks in the evening was the perfect finish for this wedding. I would like to mention that my assistant took some of the photos (church from above, wedding couple in the car, decoration). I also recommend her as a wedding photographer from 2014 on.

Wedding gown: Pronovias
Make-up/Hair: Jan-Mark Heuer

Today Only One Photo

At the moment it is peak season for us wedding photographers, which is why it is hard for me to show you whole weddings on my blog. To shorten the waiting time, I will post some highlights from time to time. I start with a portraits that I shot last week on a wedding in Uelzen.


A Gown to Kneel Down

Not only the dress, Sabrina has put a lot of thought into it to make the wedding an unforgettable event. The result is awesome and makes me as a wedding photographer very happy: lots of great details and a wonderful atmosphere. You could feel the emotions as well, with very insightful moments in the church and with lots of fun in the evening the time went by extremely fast. The gown of the bride will be familiar to most of you, it is from top-designer Vera Wang from New York and it was worn of one of the actresses in the movie Bridewars. The blue suede shoes von NAVYBOOT were the perfect match for this dress. If you visit my blog more often, you will recognize Michael Graaf’s unique flower arrangements. Good work as well from Katharina Jasinski who did the make-up for this wedding. The cut and the smoking of the groom came from Dolzer.

The celebration took place at the Suellberg Hotel, where Michelin Star Chef Karlheinz Hauser prepared an unbelievable delicious dinner. During the lunch break there was a nice reception with harbour view at the Le Carnat Nouveau, the restaurant of Ali Güngörmus, the first turkish chef who got a Michelin star. Accordingly amazing was the cake and muffin buffet (frau larsson, Julies Cake, the knot, die Schoenhaberei, Casa di Falcone) In the evening the King Kamehameha Club Band from the King Ka in Frankfurt and DJ Dedl entertained the crowd with a great music mix. I don’t want to forget something that could be important to one of you. The carpet in the church was from Princessday, Pompons and Lampions are from Miss Étoile und Pom Pom Factory. The menu cards and church brochures were printed with the „Letterpressverfahren“ from Impressiona. The table and seat notes came from Gmund-Papier. I want to mention a special thanks to my intern Natalia Cury which contributed a few very nice pictures to this post. Enjoy!
