Story

The Schwarzach Gorge, also known as Schwarzachklamm or Schwarzachdurchbruch, is one of the 100 most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria and has been a protected area since 1936. When I visited and explored this place for the first time, I fell in love with it directly. Then, in mid-December, Jessica and Murtaza sent me a request for their after wedding shoot. All they knew was that they wanted to take pictures in nature. So when Jessica told me about her green wedding dress, I thought that would certainly go well with the gorge in terms of color. So I told them about the Schwarzachklamm.

(Their Muslim wedding was to take place one day before in Frankfurt.) They were totally thrilled by my idea and agreed to shoot there. On the shooting day, it was a few days before Christmas, we met right at the entrance to the gorge. It was snowing heavily, but that only emphasized the magical atmosphere in the gorge. And then it was just them, Jessicas beautiful green wedding dress, the gorge, and my camera while they explored the place together. Just like I had a few weeks ago.

“Murtaza, could you hold Jessicas Hand as gently as possible and guide her towards the river? Please take your time while doing so. Look around – left and right – and enjoy the moment. You two look really gorgeous!!”

Photographer Nuremberg Canon EOS R6 Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 and Sigma 35mm f/1.4
Hi! I’m Sarah – a wedding photographer based in Nuremberg. I love taking raw and intimate photos in a fairytale-like style. When I am not drinking coffee or reading books, you can find me wandering in the woods or hiking in the mountains. I am a person who falls in love with sunsets and beautiful landescapes again and again. One day I want to travel the world with my camera.
