das A und O

The German expression "das A und O" derives from the bible, and roughly translated means "the beginning and the end"... a fitting title to a beautiful wedding in Berlin's fashionable Hotel Interconti - and funnily enough it was the couple's initials...!

What a gorgeous traditional Jewish wedding this was - with a fun but equally serious signing of the ketubah, a fabulously designed chuppah by Emilia at Flores Y Amores and what a simply amazing party afterwards! But this was unlike other traditional weddings, my signature getting ready shoots for the boys and girls was loads of fun and a great start to the day, as was the big group shot - a photographer must also morph as an entertainer sometimes!

The whole was wonderfully orchestrated (and choreographed) by Marie and Leni at  - Max Entertainment - thanks Ladies!

Such a wedding is also a society event - and as the photographer - my and my team need to be on call so as not to miss those special unexpected moments. And this wedding was dotted with them, adding to the factor to our photojournalistic and documentary style.
