Up to date all weddings I have photographed have been either from recommendations or couples who were at weddings I have covered. I first met Magi and Matz at a wedding I was covering in 2013. In January 2014 Magi sent me an email saying that she was going to get married this year and if I could give her a call. It seemed that she had seen my photos and Album and wanted me to be the photographer at her wedding. Unfortunately the date she gave me was already booked so we discussed possible dates and she said that she would get back to me.
Two days later Magi phoned back and said that they had managed to change all their arrangements for the civil ceremony and that that the wedding church ceremony and reception would be in 2015. This was amazing as it was the first wedding where the couple were so intent on having me as their photographer that they were even willing to change their arrangements.
We agreed to have an pre-shooting shoot as this is always the best way to get to know each other and for me to find out exactly what the couple were looking for. They also wanted to have their dog with as he was part of their family but we then decided to have a special shoot after the wedding to include him.
The couple chose the Botanic Gardens in Gütersloh for the shoot and, as if on call, the sun decided to come out of the clouds now and again to shine on the couple.
