This is a contest version of Celia and Niels wedding day for WayUpNorth Award 2017.
It was real pleasure to spent time in Copenhagen with these couple and their guests. It seems to me that for this 2 days I became a part of these big family.
The first day I remembered our first meeting in real life, discussing plans for the upcoming 2 days, rainy weather, but good mood. Then there was an unforgettable kayaking on the canals of Copenhagen in amazing red suits. We were lucky with the weather. As soon as we finished kayaking, it started to rain. The evening continued in a very cozy Argentine restaurant. It was a welcoming dinner in the closest circle of close people who had traveled a long way from the US and other countries to get to the wedding of Brian and Nancy.
The second day began with the preparation at the hotel. Then there was the road to a very, very old church of Højerup at Stevens Klint on the shores of the Baltic Sea with a great history, in which the official registration took place. It was impossible not to use such beautiful views, and not to make a couple of pictures on the shores of the Baltic Sea. After that, the evening continued with a cozy dinner at the Nimb Bar, which is located in Tivoli Gardens.
For all the days spent with these people, I never ceased to admire their relationship. It's so beautiful and sensual! I will not say that I photographed super-masterpieces, but it seems to me that I was able to convey this mood, the emotions, feelings, smiles, emotions that were these days. This is real and very valuable to me. I am very happy that I was lucky enough to photograph such people in Copenhagen, Denmark!
It was wedding day of my second cousin Sergey and Stella somewhere in Belgium between Ghent and Sint-Niklaas. You will see a lot of simple photos in my story of their wedding day. But I think sometimes all you need is to capture simple moments that happens around us and to help people relive their wedding day looking at this images.
A lot of fun and happiness from Tanya and Andrew wedding dinner. Or how to capture interesting moments when you work only a few hours without getting ready and portrait session. This wedding is example how to create really intimate, family, comfortable and sometimes crazy event. I'm happy that I was wedding photographer for these amazing people.
Sometimes it turns out to pull myself together and build a small series of photos almost immediately after the wedding day. This is only my first impressions of this wedding. A more complete series will be a little bit later.
Wedding album for Catharina and Gaëtan. Size of one page is 300x400 mm. This album include a little bit more photos then the story from this wedding in my blog - http://kritchko.com/blog/catharina-and-gaetan-dinant. I include more details, posing and family photos.
At the festival, I became part of the team Belinsta bloggers who were partners of the company Samsung. For shooting we used different phones A Galaxy. For example I had the Galaxy A7 (2016). It is difficult to name the camera of this phone is suitable for the serious reportage work. Especially when you usually shoot on Nikon SLR cameras as the D700 and D750 with the top lens. Perhaps, in terms of speed cameras, a top of the range Galaxy S to be faster and better. I do not know, because I never used them, and in my life I use the old Iphone 5s. However, the final result has pleasantly surprised me. I did not expect to get enough nice color and quality photos. I think that is almost always more important what you are able to see, and not on what camera you shoot.
