Sarah & Dan | Wedding Photographer in Switzerland
As a wedding photographer in Switzerland, the world is sometimes small. Exactly one year had passed since the wedding of Simon & Denise, which I was allowed to accompany in my neighboring village. While I had already met these two again for a shooting with their little boy, I was now travelling to Zurich as a wedding photographer for two of the guests: Sarah & Dan. The passion for music and especially singing is probably only one of all the things they have in common, but this passion was clearly noticed at their wedding in the church of Gossau. Never before has there been so much singing at a wedding as at this one! After the ceremony we went outside for the reception, which exceeded everything I have seen so far. Amazing to get to know such incredible vendors! 🙂
After the reception we went to our bridal couple shooting – for which we had previously found a wonderful place! A bit elevated on a hill, with a beautiful view, we enjoyed some time and took beautiful photos with absolutely amazing light. As a wedding photographer, that’s something I emphasize again and again: 45 minutes with beautiful light are much better than 2 hours with harsh light at noon! Light is simply everything – and this time we were even blessed with a beautiful dark, dramatic sky. The cool bus of a friend of the bride and groom gave the finishing touches to the whole thing, and although the two – like many other couples – couldn’t make friends with the idea of such a couple shooting at first, in the end I was able to take pictures that I really like and that show the two of them as I got to know them. To stand in front of the camera is not easy (I indeed know why I prefer to be the wedding photographer behind the camera…), but I am always very happy when we manage to create something characteristic in the end. After all, wedding photos are, besides memories, what you still have after 30 years.
