SVETLANA & ALEXANDR • WEDDING IN RUSSIA • 24 MAY 2014
In the end of May 2014 I went on a trip to Russia especially to take photos of the fabulous wedding of Svetlana and Alexandr. This wedding was also very special for me as a person, not only as a photogrpaher, as I have known the bride since she was six years old. I was really looking forward to taking photos of the event. The ceremony took place in a beautiful barton near the church of Dubrovitsi. And even though the air temperature was extremely high all day (+30 C) for this time of year, we managed to make everything according to the plan.
Here is a bit of their story. Svetlana and Alexandr have know each other since high school, they have been friends for many years before they started dating. Alex always invited Svetla on the biking day-trips and to go cross-country skying with him. They met almost every weekend, but remain friends. Then one day something changed and they understood they couldn't be just friends any longer... Now they have been together for two and a half years and love each other more and more with every day. The location they chose for the wedding wasn't just a coincedance, they have been in Dubrovitsi many times on their bikes.
