Natasha and Marco

Natasha is an incredibly talented artist and when she asked me to photograph their wedding I was so flattered. Natasha and Marco had a huge map mural that was perfect for the setting of some of the photos, along with the map they had these deep teal chairs. I couldn’t make this up in my dreams if I wanted to. Their big fat Serbian wedding featured all the traditions, parade, pig roast and plenty of rakija to go around.

Ivana and Bati

Serbian weddings are by far my favorite to be a part of. Imagine, multiple days of celebrating and always surrounded by music and dance. The wedding day itself is day two, it starts with a parade and bartering for the bride! The groom comes with all his friends and family, along with a flag bearer. The Bride is hidden in the house with her bridesmaid who are preventing any of the grooms men getting in, and basically STEALING her or getting any of the bridesmaids shoes. Usually the best man is the one to negotiate a price for the bride. All while swapping back a flask ( buklijaš ) filled with rakija - a Serbian home made brandy. Once they’ve reached an agreed price, the bride is then brought out and the party starts. Amazing right?

Ivana and Bati are the two most fun beautiful souls and I couldn’t have wished for this kind of couple to contact me. Not only did I enjoy their day ( probably as much as they did), but I got to capture their love story.

I hope you have been keeping up with my Sarah posts in the past, that include her and her pup-Tucker. Sarah is just an all out beautiful person and I feel lucky to know her. I cried during her maid of honors speech, her best friend spoke of all the wonderful things that make her such a great person. Nick and Tucker will be well taken care of. Check out the post on their engagement because its such a wonderful story of how 4 generations of women in her family have touched one dress. Click here for that story.

Revolution Brewery Wedding

Probably one of the most laid back and fun weddings I have worked on.  I knew the couple in college and I wouldn't expect anything but a fantastic time at their wedding. You can truly feel how deeply they love each other and I'm so glad to be a part of their day.
