I was recently photographing this sparkling beauty ... more pictures to come.
It usually takes me long to update my journal with new pictures and a lot of beautiful events are still waiting their turn. With some shootings I can't just wait and post them immediately ... this was one of the coldest Sundays of this Winter ...
Last Summer I photographed such a beautiful wedding in St. Moritz. It was an intimate celebration with closest family and friends. The ceremony was held in my favourite Celerina. San Gian church was delicately decorated with brunches of larch trees that grow in the Engadine forests. So simple and yet so exquisite!
I am still not sure what I love about this wedding the most - the beautiful Hotel des Balances, where Rebecca was getting ready, or her fabulous alabaster skin? Or was it her dreamy shoes and embroidered silky layers of the wedding dress that I was not able to stop taking pictures of? Or her classic hair style that will never go out of style? Or was it the charming smile of the Groom? Well, I guess it was a perfect combination of everything :) (and I could not think of a more stunning venue to register the marriage than the majestic Portraitsaal in the Rathaus of Lucerne!)
Another beautiful wedding that I loved a lot last year ... This lovely couple chose to exchange their wedding vows in Zermatt. They traveled all the way to Switzerland from the USA with family and friends and stayed at Cervo Mountain Boutique, where they planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony with the spectacular view of the iconic Matterhorn. On the morning of the wedding it started to rain cats and dogs, and the Matterhorn, perfectly seen just the day before, was completely covered with grey clouds. The gorgeous flower arch and all the ceremony decor had to be transported to the Ferdinand restaurant. The groom's mother was the Officiant, and the whole ceremony was very personal and emotional for the bride and groom. Despite of the heavy rain we still took outdoor portraits in the nearby meadow, which was actually a fun to do! The newlyweds celebrated well into the night with their guests!
This is my most favourite editorial shooting I have done so far, which is not surprising as it was styled by the renowned wedding designer Joy Proctor, famous for her elegant and romantic aesthetic, at the truly stunning Amalfi Coast.

Rich colours of oleander gardens, sparkling lake and the cutest couple, this is to summarise this engagement shooting in Zurich. I met Debi and Florian to discuss their wedding plans at Zürichhorn, the recreational area with parks and gardens in the Seefeld quarter of Zurich. We walked along the lake taking in the beauty around us. It was a wonderful late May evening filled with that magical golden light that is so good for the portraits. And I should not forget to mention the oleanders, yes, we did lots of kissing portraits in the bushes! :)
I was so lucky to photograph this adorable couple some days ago - we had plenty of sun, rain and laughs, can't wait to share more pictures!

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.
