Mary and Andreas got married!

A winter wedding is always a special kind of challenge from a photography point of view. But low temperatures, early nightfall and more challenging landscapes can also help us create a unique point of view!

The ferris wheel on the christmas market in Bensheim was the first place we went to.

We got very lucky with the weather on this winter’s day in Bensheim, about 20 minutes drive south of Darmstadt: the sun peeked out behind the clouds occasionally and the temperatures were bearable… especially for the gorgeous bride.

After snapping a few scenes around Bensheim, we headed up to an old castle nearby for some variation before driving to Darmstadt, where I’d arranged for us to be able to use a nice staircase in a building near the city centre.

Simple, ambient lighting to keep the couple comfortable and not waiting too much; then the building and the people just did their magic!

Here are a few more snaps from the party at night and the ceremony.

We had a great time and a seemingly effortless photo session. At least it felt like that to me, swaddled in multiple layers of clothes whereas both the bride and groom soldiered on bravely through the day!

Thank you so much to both of you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
