The Bridal Glam

We planned a glam bridal photo session, then the snowstorm hit. I reveal even more this was the only day when it snowed during the whole winter in Poland. Can you imagine? Only for one day!? The next morning everything was melted. Most importantly snowstorm did not ruin our spirits. I was extremely happy for such rough weather conditions… but hey, I guess it wasn’t about me, fully dressed up in a long winter jacket and boots I got from Canada.

Shout out to our fearless Bride, dressed in a beautiful vintage wedding dress with transparent sleeves, what gave the feeling ‘without sleeves; and bare feet wearing high heels. On top of everything you could hear me saying during the shoot ‘Can you pretend like it is freezing cold?’ 😉

We took pictures in front of an abandoned house, luckily the door entrance was under a small roof which gave kind of a safe place to hide from the snow.

40th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY OF MY PARENTS

I am proud to show you some part of a very personal photoshoot,

the 40th Wedding Anniversary of my Parents.

I had the honor to photograph many Couples on their Wedding Anniversaries, from the very 1st all the way to the 50th. Each time it was different, sometimes it was a photo session of the Two of Them, sometimes it was a Surprise Wedding Anniversary for Her (yeah, all prepared by Him) or as a Surprise to all attending Guests (yeah, they were told it is a Birthday Party), but quite often it looked like a second Wedding, with a Wedding Dress, flowers, guests, venue rental with dinner, music, and an Official in order to renew the vowes. Therefore this contagious happiness, tears of joy and celebration of LOVE brought me finally into an idea of doing it for my own Parents!

It was the longest planned photoshoot in my life! Why? Because I know what kind of props my Parents still own from their Wedding and I wanted to use it all in order to bring back some memories but also to recreate a Wedding photograph they took in a studio (but this will be in another post).  So don’t ask how many dusty boxes we had to open to find it all. I also created some props myself.

Real props used (for a photo session part two) from a Wedding Day:

Wedding Rings, an Engagement Ring, a Wedding Invitation, a crystal carafe (wedding gift), and a few Wedding pictures from a studio.

Props made or founded by me:

The gold champagne bottle, flowers (I recreated Wedding Bouquet), the suitcase with pictures, books and a wall calendar from the year they said ‘I do!’, a basket with fruits and strawberries, big ball, little fireworks and smoke flares.

What went wrong?

In a field, we were surrounded by hundreds of mosquitos. That is why we did not take many planned pictures… so we had to finish the photo session in the garden. It was chaotic, you can’t imagine! Dad wasn’t thrilled 😉 Haha!

Facts:

This is a second part of the photo session, the first part was taken in By Niki Photography Studio, where I recreated Wedding photographs taken 40 years earlier.

We did it a few months after the actual Wedding Anniversary day.

 

I encourage you to gift your Parents / Grandparents with such a priceless photo session. Already married? Great, plan it to yourself!

Trust me this is worth the effort and so much fun, look at my Dad with smoke flare! Ha ha! 😉

 

This is absolutely the best Family Souvenir we have.

 

Here you can see a First Wedding Anniversary of one lovely Couple, it is always such a LOVE Celebration and it doesn’t matter if this is a First or a 40th.

Drown in LOVE

‘Drown in LOVE’ is one of my recent photography projects that was in my mind for some time and finally, it became alive. Milk Baths are my recent photography obsessions. Great for Bridal Portraits or rather Trash the Dress, Maternity, Fashion and much more! I could not help myself when I saw how it looked through the viewfinder…. and the effect of that you can see on my Instagram! Shout out to Model Monsieur Jacob! Great job!

Bridal Portraits

Bridal Portraits is an absolute MUST HAVE in my photography dictionary. After looking at all of those images above, don’t you agree? There are two methods of doing that kind of sessions, the most popular is Bridal Portrait Session planned days or even months ahead of a Wedding Day. Later on, most of Brides decide on having printed canvas, photo album or a slight show during Wedding Day as a surprise for guests and Husband. Advantages are endless for this photography sessions from testing wedding makeup, hairstyle, fitting dress and having pictures taken in a beautiful location of your choice etc.

Therefore I introduced long time ago Bridal Portraits for all destination Weddings, taken on a Wedding Day. I believe each Bride deserves having that kind of pictures. That is why I try to generate (sometimes even I beg!) for 20 up to 30 minutes with Bride and Groom only, on a Wedding Day. In a meantime, I shoot my Couple together as well Bride and Groom separately. We do it before or after the Ceremony. However my focus remains mostly on a Bride, don’t blame me, please!

In Bridal Portraits taken above, we had approximately mentioned time-frame for pictures to take. Straight after Ceremony, we rushed to the nearest park. And those are the results. Right now I am in a process of designing high-end Wedding Photo Album, follow my Instagram to see how it goes! Wedding Date June 16th, 2018. Amazing Bride: Milena.

Engagement, Miami Beach, Cam and Javon

Apparently pouring rain in Miami Beach, 20 minutes before our Engagement Photo Session had a great outcome, empty South Beach. I met this lovely Couple at Great Bridal Expo in downtown Miami, where I was one of the vendors with my Wedding Photography. I never met so many Future Brides and Grooms in one day! The atmosphere was amazing, Love was in the Air cause so many Couples were in love and everybody was planning a Wedding.

But let’s come back to the photo session above. Cam and Javon are absolutely lovely Couple. We had so much fun working together, especially when our prop – round ball decided to leave us. We all could not stop laughing! However Javon caught it 😉  Cam is also a Positive Influencer so make sure to check Her Instagram

By the way, can you imagine this is my first day at home/my real desk since the Expo? Guess what was I doing today? Unpacking two suitcases from the recent trip to Miami, unpacking one suitcase from Paris and Cape Verde and packing one suitcase for another 10 days travel! Leaving tomorrow again 😉

HALDI Pre-Wedding Ceremony, New Delhi, India

Pre-Wedding Haldi Ceremony in India next to few Hindu Weddings I photographed back in the U.S.A. is absolutely different ambiance, especially when it comes to decorations. However, first let me explain a little bit what is Haldi Ceremony all about and why Groom to be is covered with a yellow mixture.
The Haldi Ceremony is the one in which mixed paste of turmeric with sandalwood powder and milk or rose-water is applied to the bride and the groom’s body before their Wedding. It is done to add the glow, to make their skin shine. Its color ushers in a life of prosperity for the couple, who are starting off their new life together.
Application of the paste marks an auspicious start to a new life together with a pure heart and soul. Actually, family members told me “We make Him beautiful for a Bride!”.
This ceremony was also accompanied by traditional songs and dances at times.
Now let’s take a closer look at amazing decor work done by Desinger Events Inc.
As you see I focused myself a lot on decorations, vivid in colors and the endless quantity of fresh flowers.
Can you smell it too? 😉
You have probably noticed a pink wall with so many shoes on, which actually was the wall of a bar.
It was a Jutti Bar made with 72 pairs of Juttis. Jutti is the traditional footwear of Punjab and both families being Punjabi wanted the decor to be everything Punjabi. The Bride loved to wear juttis. That is why the decoration Team put them on the bar – not one, not two but 144 of them!
Next Day was an actual Wedding Day, however, this deserves a space in another post.
Congratulations to Hardit and Geena!
 Pre-Wedding Ceremony Location: Novotel Aerocity, New Delhi, India.
