Story

This photoshoot was the first shoot we did after quarantine. Most of the weddings for 2020 got postponed or canceled and we were super keen to create something beautiful again. When Galia Lahav asked us if we could imagine using one of their dresses for upcoming projects we were not quite sure if their style would fit ours until we saw this amazing gown! Actually, we had to convince them to send over this dress since it is very edgy and therefore probably not a big seller. However, we were like – this one or nothing. When Maria (the bride) was wearing it we were all blown away! Whenever we do creative projects we always want to try out something new. We want to inspire others, improve our skills, and raise the bar a bit higher. This photoshoot is very “Fashion“ inspired and that’s why the dress was such a big thing for us. As for the posing we also wanted it very unconventional and we took many inspirations from Fashion photography. One of our main inspiration was an old Mango campaign.

Laying poses are just like sitting poses not always a good idea in wedding clothes. Also not each couple is made for it. Find out beforehand if your couple is the kind of badass couple to jump in the dunes. Also better bring a blanket to lay on.

Hey y’all, good to have you here! We are a husband and wife photographer team focused on wedding photography. The last few years have been an incredible ride and we were able to travel all around the globe doing what we love the most – shooting weddings! We found our happy place on the Balearic Island Mallorca where we restored an old house. There are so many good stories and experiences we’ve made and we’re happy to share some of them with you over here! Cheers Chris and Ruth
