I was blessed to accompany this typical country wedding near Nuremberg in 2015 as a wedding photographer. Or, actually, it was just the couple shoot that I was accompanying as a wedding photographer close to Nuremberg. During these 90 minutes we created the most important couple pictures. Directly behind the parents’ house of Marina, where she also had her Getting Ready, there was a large uncut meadow with many fruit trees. On this simple meadow we made the pictures, which you can see below.
After a touching first look, we fought our way through the meadow to the shady fruit trees. So look for the light when choosing your location. Of course you can take great photos directly under the sun – but the look is quite different and you often have to fight with strong shadows, shiny skin and narrowed eyes.
An hour had passed quickly and so we went to another orchard, where I captured some more impressions. Finally, the two wanted to take a few more photos with the wedding car. The restored VW Beetle gave some opportunities to take beautiful wedding photos and so we spent a little time with it. After the very entertaining and authentic shoot, my part as a wedding photographer was already done and I made my way home.
