Inspired by the sea

Photographed by Licht Trunken


During couple shoots at weddings, I want to capture and describe the couple’s relationship in its purity, reduced only to the two lovers. Without much ado, very simply, I am focused on the essence of these two people in this short time during the wedding day.

It is important for me to depict the history and connection between two people in a single image. And this time out shooting together is important. I always explain to my bridal couples that this is a little “breather” from the hustle and bustle of the day – as it’s a beautiful time for them to just be with each other alone. And this is a big load of pure emotion every time and it is important for me to capture this feeling in the pictures so that the couple can feel it again when they look at the pictures.

For me, this kind of pose is always quite different. When the couple looks at each other and talks, it gives a different feeling than not looking at each other and just feeling the words and the physical contact. Both are incredibly intense but have different outcomes. Every couple is different and for every couple, one variation works better than the other. However, you quickly find out what is more intense for the couple. In this case, feeling and hearing were definitely more intense than seeing and hearing.
