We just realized that we never published the wonderful styled shoot we did last year in Florence Italy for the E-magazine from Austria’s larges wedding blog called Hochzeitsguide. We have been on the cover of the second issue and badly wanted to be part of the third version too.
When we both first met back in 2003 we knew this is something special with us. The circumstances were everything but no basis for a long time relationship. But we both felt, this was different. We started dating, we moved in together, we started a company and we quit our day jobs for the passion of our lives.
After eleven years, we thought it was something serious so we got married on a wonderful day in February this year. During our honeymoon in Hawaii we brought a long time idea to live and started a new, probably the most exciting and challenging, adventure in life.
Earlier this year we came across this startup company from Valentin and Vitali through our friend Steffen – Stilpirat – Böttcher called Compagnon Bags. We were hooked from the first moment and we contacted them right away.
We have been looking for nicer camera bags other than these big black bulky things screaming “look-i-have-10k-euros-photo-gear-in-here” for a very long time.
Wohoo! Yesterday we have got an e-mail from Ben & Drew aka The Cana Family, with a link to Vimeo. All of a sudden Carmen was shaking a little and we both were super nervous and excited. It does not happen often that we have to give up control for something about us and we were afraid of how we would look and how we come across. Carmen was worring about her hair and make up after hiking for hours through the forest as well ;-)
Can you see the cow dung on our feet? Haha, that was really funny!
Yesterday we got that kind of feeling that our brides and grooms must have when we send them the links for photos or fusion. Normally we can only imagine how they must feel when they talk about their excitement.
Today a super relaxed and don’t-move-only-recharge-batteries kind of vacation ends and we are on our way back to Munich. More about the fantastic time here in Thailand is coming in a separate posting. We need to show this shoot with the lovely Natalie and Hayden first.
The Australian/New Zealand couple living in Sydney has gotten our attention last week as the staff in our resort has mentioned a wedding party at the other end of the beach. We both were pretty excited to see the venue getting ready and how the stationary and reception is looking like. Frankly speaking, we were very surprised about the beautiful style the team has created here. (We learned later, that the bride has planed this very well in advanced and things she wanted were even shipped from the states ;-)
We are super excited about this wedding. Not only because it’s another fellow photographers wedding but also because it was a destination wedding in Italy. When Angelika and Artur first contacted us with the option that the wedding might be in Tuscany, we knew already that this will be outstanding. Both of them are very talented photographers them self with a well running business in Pforzheim. Earlier this year we had the honor to do an engagement session here in the Munich area. In case you missed this, here is the post about it.
We are in the middle of high peak wedding season right now. Lotsa work around and also kinda stressful for both of us. Times like that make us thing back to our travels and realize (remember) how grateful we should be for our lives. All plays well right now here in our world. We are half time through of our first year of full time biz owners and still very happy with the decision.
It’s been a couple of year’s back that we had a wedding of a really close friends with even an additional part besides photographing. We were extremely exited to hear from the engagement of our friends Yvonne and Ilja last year and as you can imagine we have forced them to get a date for the wedding asap, if they want as to be there too. So they came up with the long weekend in the end of Mai, which was last weekend.
We did it! After doing fusion workshops, portrait photography and editing workshops during the last years we decided to go for a business specific wedding workshop and unveil all we know about this industry and how we work. We put it under the umbrella “learn how we do it”. We almost could not believe the fact, that it was sold out within 15h after opening the registration form. We had no idea that so many people are interested into how we run our business and what we have to talk about. We were blown away by the trust and interest into the workshops and we certainly wanted to be an unforgettable experience for all attendees. Here is to first of all, thank all our attendees for being part of this workshop!
First of all we would like to thank you all so much for the overwhelming response to Kismets and Nitins wedding. It’s been a page view record for us again and we loved all your comments here and on Facebook and Twitter. We are speechless! Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts!
Chances are that we are repeating ourselves here but we are in love with this country. Ever since we visited it first, back in 2005, there is a special chemistry between us and India. The people, the nature, the smells, the traffic just everything is so different from back home or any other places we have seen so far.
When we got hired for the wedding we did not waste a second to clear out the calendar for at least a month in order to spend some time here.
Well you might say, haven’t you just been on a 6 month vacation? Then let us tell you, that our trip around the world was not just a super long vacation and second, it’s almost a year that we came back from that trip.
So we decided before our busy summer is starting in April, we would like to recharge batteries and combine once again what we do love the most: photography and traveling.
The Mission: “Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.”
We have been thinking about writing such a blog post for a very long time now. Due to recent happenings we though we should releasing our experiences about the wonderful cyber world and how it effects our real life in a positive sense. Also we would like to encourage you to be more active in this way of connecting the cyber world with the real world.
