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.

Maternity Milk Bath

New Year New Beginnings for many of us out there… Some people are expecting a Baby Boy to come to this World, others are opening an online company, in a meantime somewhere in the North Pole one man is starting a new job in a high voltage sector, some of you are making plans for a Wedding with By Niki Photography or By Niki Photography Team, myself with a New Year I got my wings back and planning to expand with photography on a new markets however the dominant target is Florida.

But let’s come back to the main subject on this post! As you probably realized, I mostly post Weddings on my website. Meaning those photographs are somehow magical to me!

I had a great honor to photograph my Dear Friend Magda and I am beyond thankful for trusting me on this one! During first phone conversation we had, I was told I can decide on what kind of maternity session it will be… it took me a while and I almost shouted out to the phone “we have to do Milk Bath!” and you know what? She looks more beautiful than ever!

Milk Bath photo shoots are my real obsession recently… one thing is sure I won’t do the same session again! Each time it must be different, different colors, flowers or whatever I decide to soak in (top secret for the moment).

Winter is a great moment to do that! It is indoors, warm, relaxing and not many people I personally know took part in such a photo adventure. And if you happen to think about unique photo session, shoot me an email to by.niki@yahoo.com

No, you don’t need a bathtub at home!

Milk bath recommendations:

Glamour,

Trash the Dress,

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.

The Moody Mansion Wedding, Galveston Island, Texas

 

I think part of them knew the second they saw each other that this would happen… It must be the inexplicable feeling that is coming along with it. And we call it LOVE.

Once upon a time a few Weddings ago Trisha and Charles said their “I dos” in this beautiful historic mansion in heart of Galveston Island, Texas. After my arrival at the Moody Mansion, I took Bride’s and Groom’s portraits first my favorite part I guess, later on, I photographed as well Bridesmaids and Groomsmen. After Ceremony Trisha and Charles literally got the Wings of Happiness and danced/flew away from the aisle. Since Wedding Venue is located few steps away from the beach, guests could change uncomfortable shoes and dance in black or white flip-flops.
