Wind in the hair

... For her the ocean was more than a dream, it was a place she needed to visit to find herself. And when she returned to the city, you could see the sun in her eyes, the wind in her hair, and taste the infinite salt on her lips. (Jose Chaves)

Nightswim.

I'm waiting for you, jump in.

It’s colder when you’re out there.

Still waiting on the first step. T

ake my hand. Swim to me.

Say this night swim, will last for an eternity.

January Engagement Story in Paris // Destination Film Photographer // Wedding Photographer in Switzerland

Paris is the city of constant inspiration, and I always wanted to photograph a love story there. Something rather simple, almost minimalistic, but with chic details, something very Parisian (at least in my imagination :) We planned lots of walking, which was limited in reality due to heavy rain (it was snowing as well for about 3 minutes and sunny for another 5). So now I know that Paris in the middle of January is grey, gloomy and rainy  but still breathtakingly stunning, as well as my couple (and the Bride's dress!)

Switzerland Wedding Photographer // Emma & Carl, Summer Love Story

My dear Swedish friends moved recently to New York, I miss them, and these pictures taken one Summer day are very special to me. Our portrait session started at their beautiful flat in Enge, and afterwards we walked to the beautiful park of the Rietberg Museum. I hope you will enjoy this love story in Zurich as much as I did :)

One evening full of happiness at Vierwaldstättersee // Family and Portrait Film Photographer in Meggen, Canton of Lucerne, Switzerland

Last year I had an opportunity to photograph this lovely family at Vierwaldstättersee, one of the most beautiful lakes of Switzerland. The mom of this wonderful family reached out to me asking about a family portrait session in Meggen, where she spent her childhood with her parents. The Summer (as far as I remember :) was unstable last year, and we had to postpone our photo session several times, but eventually we were lucky with weather. We had a beach just for us. It was a celebration of summer, family gathering and making of the best memories. The pictures were taken on medium format film, and I must confess, I love them so much, the soft magic of film makes every single shot very intimate and authentic, presenting it as an effortless piece of art.
