It was Saturday and I was at a wedding quite far from home. Again. Have I already mentioned that I love to work as a destination wedding photographer? On that Saturday I was in the area around the city Wels in Austria.

Nowadays when I approach a wedding I’m not nervous anymore. At least not that much as I used to be. With time I gained a lot of experience under my belt. With practice good skills came along. Finally – with good skills I now have the confidence in what I do and therefore approach the wedding day in a much more relaxed manner.

But every now and then it happens… It strikes me out of the blue! The bride arrived in an old-timer that day. The second she got out of the oldtimer weding car from “Royal classics” two thoughts came to my mind and did not leave my mind for most of the day:

“Why oh why didn’t I photograph the “bride getting ready part of the wedding day?” The pictures would most definitely be fricking awesome!”
“What a gorgeous wedding dress. You better make sure the dress looks as good in the pictures as it does in reality!”

The bride getting ready part had already passed. There was nothing I could do about it. I tried to get over it and started shooting. The civil marriage took place at the registration office in Wallern an der Trattnach.


The wedding ceremony took place just a little afterwards in a church nearby.


During the day we had the time to shoot family portraits and the newlywed’s pictures.


Late afternoon we headed to the reception at Strasserhof Übleis in Gunskirchen. I very much enjoyed the band “Seek for silence“as the background music was really great. The wedding cake was from “Martin Mayer“.



Late at night I was driving back to my accommodation in Linz. I was really satisfied with my photography work that day. My head was free and the morning worries were gone.
