2018 in Review – my favourite wedding photographs of the year

I’m pleased to share my favourite wedding photos of 2018. It’s been an amazing year and this is the result! I’d like to thank all my clients for trusting me with the responsible task of being your wedding photographer. Most of the weddings  were done in France, England, Italy and Spain. Please see the photos below to see what I’ve been up to, I’ve added captions below some of the photos so that you can understand what I see in them.

I’d also like to thank my wife and retoucher Inese for her magical touch when it comes to color grading and touching up the photos, you’ve done a stellar work, as always!

Enjoy the photographs below and I’m looking forward to new weddings, new destinations and new challenges for 2019. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, please get in touch through my contact form.

romantic row boat wedding photos
Love this twilight shot, while guests were sitting down for the dinner, we were out in the lake taking photographs.
photographer in London
You can see that I’ve been shooting more in the dark than before, must be because of the new equipment I’ve aquired for this season. I’m shooting with Nikon D850 cameras that are fabulous machines for low light photography.

Love the forest covered in flowers, this location was a total surprise to me, but very seasonal for locals. France keeps surprising me.

Love how energetic this shot is, a hot summer wedding in Italy.

wedding ceremony
So yes, it’s not just tears and crying in the ceremony, I aim to catch some laughter as well. I don’t have a clue what they’re laughing about, as I said, I don’t speak Mandarin. I look for emotions when I press the button, that’s it.
writing the love letter
Writing a love letter to her groom.

The chapel of Babington house. It was very narrow and closed but in the same time made the ceremony intimate, liked it a lot.

The old ruins in Marthon. You can see the rooftops of all buildings in the town from there. I recommend visiting the place in the evening when the sun is lower. A truly beautiful view.
castle wedding in France
Chateau Challain, still my favorite wedding venue in France. Majestic any day, any time. And yo can arrange everything for the photoshoot there – need a boat? got a boat. Need a torch? Got a torch. Need a twilight? well, you’ll have to wait for that.

Curiosity drives the world.
