It was beginning of May when my colleague Marketa Zelenkova from Brno gave me a quick phone call asking for help. She had broken her ankle and was not able to do a wedding photo shoot. I was available so I was happy to help.

On Thursday 11th of May I was on my way from Prague to Brno. I knew very little about this wedding, so I thought a lot about it during the long ride. But when I stepped into the bride’s room, I was surprised how well we fit together; typically the stage of booking the event and getting know each other usually takes months, but here it was a breeze. The bride and I are the same age and have the same nature. All it worked together. I loved the time when she was getting ready, her bridesmaids made it very special.

Their non-formal wedding and celebration in hotel Santander all took place outside and the weather was perfect for May. The company was thinking about the dogs as well. Two of their dogs were included in the “walking down the aisle” part of the ceremony. I especially loved their puppy – Welsh Corgi. He was biting the bride’s dress all the time.
The day was the celebration of their marriage and as well groom’s birthday – two celebrations in one.

And by the way…I was testing the Fuji x-pro 2 at this wedding. Review of the camera will come soon after this post. Meanwhile, you can guess what camera is every picture used in this gallery.

This year I spent my birthday in Switzerland. It was a girly trip with a stop in Zurich to celebrate that I survived another year.

My girls were taking different flights and So I had some spare time to enjoy Zurich before I could meet them in Brugg. I started to search for a couple which wanted an engagement photo session in Zurich only a few weeks ago. It was such an amazing coincidence that one of makeup artists I met a few years ago at a wedding in Kutna Hora moved to Switzerland. We met at Zurich Haupt Banhof and they showed me the city the way only locals can do.

Our photo shoot in Zurich ended by the Zurichsee. Such an amazing piece of nature just a few steps from a busy city life. Zurich got my heart. Absolutely amazing city to photograph.

The wedding number 4 of the 2017 season was a perfect match for me and my colleague Bara from Svatbaret. Both of us had a free rein and we could do whatever we wanted. So I offered the couple photo shooting with color bombs and Bara made a unique copper design for the wedding decor. Especially the center piece took my breath away. Nothing feels better than having absolute freedom and trust.

 

We have been laughing since very early morning and when we were leaving to the ceremony my cheeks hurt from the continuous morning smile. This mood lasted until the end of the day as you can see in the pictures. I wish every wedding had an atmosphere like this!

 

The bride, expecting a baby boy, decided to get married in a violet dress with a handmade satin coat made by Julie (our common friend fashion designer, for whom I work for in Amsterdam, you can follow our work here). She also made the same coats and the flower girls who were running around in it all day.

If you need to brighten up your day, let´s take a look at these pictures. Their smiles are the thing you need to see today.
