It is safe to say that when I got hired to photograph my very first wedding I was scared witless! Don't get me wrong, I was really, really excited to shoot a wedding but the pressure was on! With other jobs, like a portrait session or business headshots, you always have a second chance. Sure, it might hurt your reputation and it might cost you a bit of money to do the shoot all over again for a better result, but at a wedding, there are no second chances! You simply cannot miss an important moment, especially during the ceremony. There's only one chance.
The wedding took place in Attersee, a tiny village right next to the eponymous lake and it was a lovely place. Despite it being only about an hour away from my hometown I'd never been to Attersee until then and when I stepped out of the car, about an hour before the wedding was set to start, I had to step back for a moment and take it all in. Sometimes the beauty that is my home country really takes my breath away.One of the reasons why this wedding is one of my favorites of last year is the fact that it was a wedding full of fun and laughter. Sure, the dress was stunning, the decoration absolutely beautiful and the wedding in general was perfectly planned, but what counts most for me personally, is the atmosphere of the whole day. I want my couples (and their guests obviously) to enjoy their wedding day to the fullest! Big smiles and belly laughs all the way. The wedding of Miriam and Thomas had all that and so much more! Thank you Miriam and Thomas for having me and, as always, THANK YOU Veronika for taking a chance on me and letting me work as your second shooter time and time again! If it weren't for you, I would be nowhere near as confident on a job, as I am now. If you would like to see the whole wedding day story head over to Veronikas Blog to see her post about the day.
