2011 is proving to be an exciting year for my photography-life (a new word inspired by words like love-life and spiritual-life, etc.) Sonja and Beat’s wedding was especially lovely on so many levels. What I mean is the power of the bond between these two people made it obvious that capturing their affections on camera would be no problem. I loved watching the love and respect they both had for their parents while the day progressed, both cherishable and rare gifts. Sonja was all smiles while Beat had a stomach full of butterflies.
They met on a sailboat, and last Saturday in the small mountain town of Bergün, Beat & Sonja committed their love to one another in front of a quaint gathering of friends and family. The apero and dinner took place at the historic “Jugendstil” hotel Kurhaus Bergün. (Art Nouveau in English) I’ve said many times that I am a perpetual lover of weddings, and once again I was blessed to walk away from the wedding feeling like I’ve taken a piece of that Love home with me.
I should also note that this first image design was inspired by the talented Stephanie Williams of Stephanie Williams Photography, specifically her RUCHE Spring lookbook.
