This and that….

Caused by increasing requests I was not able to upload posts to this blog frequently in the last couple months. Better said: I was busy and I did not have time to keep you posted. Nevertheless I will show you beautiful weddings, that I could collected on my hard disk in the last couple months, soon. In the meantime I would like to make you aware of two interviews that will make you know me and my work better. You gotta check this out.

On the one hand you will see a detailed interview of WhiteWall, that I can recommend anyways. I really love ordering stuff from them like large Pictures and canvas.

On the other hand you will see an interview divided into four parts with my highly appreciated colleague Patrick Rudolph (neun-zehn72.de). Patrick is a Photoblogger publishing lots of data and ideas regarding photography. His videos I have linked directly through his YouTube channel.

As Wedding Photographer at Gastwerk

Last fall I had the pleasure to be a part of a very beautiful wedding. The wedding couple got married at Süllberg and ended up for their reception at Gastwerk. A recent discovered patio in St. Pauli was the perfect location for taking their portraits. But we did not meet the patio’s owner. Well just get your own opinion on that :-)

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.

Summer Wedding on Sylt

The fact that I am photographing weddings on Sylt quite often is not a secret. The Island is simply beautiful and I dare to claim that there is nearly no other place in the world where on can marry so relaxed.

One reason for this is the beautiful island itself with its impressive landscape and the outstanding locations, like the Breizh and the Stroenholt – where the reception and the party took place – and also the Budersand, a great place to get ready for the wedding day (make up: Twin-Scissors). Another reason is that every guest here is, above all, a holiday maker and is able to enjoy the time around the wedding very well.

The marriage ceremony happened in the branch of the registrar’s office at the museum of local history, between ships in bottles and original figureheads of the old Sylter whaling ships. This wonderful wedding was organized by Anna Brinkmann.

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.

 

10 years Roland Michels wedding photography

More than 300 bridal couples, wonderful weddings, lots of tears of joy, emotions, love. With pleasure I am looking back and don’t want to miss a single minute. Wedding photography is a dream job and returns a lot to yourself. Certainly the addictiveness is very high, one gradually becomes a “emotion junkie” :-) One witnesses all the time those great moments and empathises every wedding. As well you get to know the people, who engage you to capture their big day in photographs, very well. All in all, it is a very personal job. Let’s see what the next ten years will have to offer, I am very curious.

For my jubilee “10 years Roland Michels wedding photography” there will be a lottery every week for the next 10 weeks on my facebook page. Please feel free to participate, share and spread the word.
