Berlin Couple Shoot | Kim & Omar

Berlin has been on my list of places I would love to visit for many years. I was so excited when I booked the trip and even more excited as I got to go with my dear friend Ilaria!

I have to say I caught the wanderlust bug big time and I am already thinking of where to go next…

I love visiting new places and meeting new people, it fill my heart with excitement, it makes me grow and because of it I become a better person. After each trip and each encounter I am never the same again…I feel enriched and energised!

While there I met up with the beautiful Kim and Omar and I had so much fun spending some time with them, learning about them and photographing their young love, I am so excited to share a some of my favourites from the session we had around the amazing Museum Island. Incredible architecture and light.

Berlin has so much to offer, including incredibly gorgeous food. It was a very short trip but we made sure we did as much as we could making the most of our little time there and I already want to go back and visit again…

 


Brook Farm Wedding | Ursula & Olly

This was one of my favourite weddings of last year, full of emotion and a hand fasting outdoor ceremony at Brook Farm, total love! Also the weather stayed perfect right up to the end of the ceremony as soon after the sky opened up and the biggest downpour descended upon us, to then become glorious once more with the most stunning sky.

It’s so beautiful to witness couples letting themselves be completely absorbed by the wonderful whirlwind of emotions on their wedding day. Unforgettable memories of a life time. As always I feel so blessed and grateful of such honour.

Thanks so much to my dear Jeannine for coming along and second shoot with me.

Sestriere couple shoot | Alessia & Alessandro

This time of the year I always go to Italy to visit my family. I love my country, it’s so beautiful and I do miss it. I wish I had extra time to stay, go visit friends, see more of my Turin and some of my favourite places. However with only a short few days to enjoy all I usually just want to be with my family and make the most of the little time we have together.

This time I did stay a few more days than usual and managed to fit a couple’s shoot in Sestriere with these beautiful souls.

Sestriere is so close to Turin, only an hour and a half drive. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Up at 2000m the sun was so strong we ended up having to take layers off and even bask in the sun between breaks of shooting.

Alessia and Alessandro were such a joy to photograph, they are so natural in front of the camera and so willing and excited for adventure. Creating photograph you love take time and effort and a desire to go exploring to find locations worthy of the shots you are after. I love working with couples who have the vision and trust the process and me. Everything is possible when you allow yourself to have freedom to be…

Some of my favourite images from the shoot. It wasn’t easy to select just a few….

 


Santorini Couple Shoot | Roberta & Nico

I can’t even tell how long I have been dreaming about visiting Santorini! I mean, it is nearly on everyone’s bucket list right? It is truly a magical place that never fails to impress and this last October I got to finally tick it off my list. It is impossible to actually get a sense of how amazing Santorini is just via images, so you are going to have to visit it yourself and not just take my word for it, be warned though you will have your breath taken away. I will do a personal post soon as I have taken thousands of images I can’t wait to share.

Anyhow back to the purpose of this post. Obviously while there I had to take advantage of the amazing scenery and put a shout out for a lovely couple who would happily have me follow them around taking photos. To my delight the lovely Roberta Facchini and her husband, also photographers, happened to be there at the same time as me shooting a wedding and had just about the right time to have a bit of fun in front of my camera. Thank you again Roberta and Nico, you were both stars and I hope you will enjoy your images for a long time.

These are some of my favourite shots from the session. I won’t hide that I now dream to photograph a wedding in Santorini myself in the future so if you are reading this post and you are planning to get married there or you are a wedding planner who would like to collaborate with me, do not hesitate to get in touch!

Much Love

Cristina :-) xx

London Wedding | Jessica & Matt Part 2

As you might have seen from last week’s blog post, the beautiful London wedding of Jessica and Matt took place over two days, the first day in London, including a ride on the London Eye and double decker bus tour, if you haven’t seen part 1 you can check it out here, the second day in the beautiful setting of Jessica’s parents garden.

Both days were filled with lots of love but the second day was very intimate and the emotions were sky high, even I had an emotional tear or two :-)

Anyhow I will let the images do the talking now.

 


London Wedding | Jessica & Matt Part 1

This is one extra special wedding because it took place over two days and I couldn’t have loved every minute more! Jessica and Matt live in Miami and came over for their celebrations here in the UK where Jessica is from.

The first day was a fun packed and exciting day involving a very cool lunch at the pub, a routemaster ride around London and to end the day a flight on the London Eye! I love urban weddings like this.

The best part was to witness how much Matt and Jessica love each other. Such a beautiful couple!

For now enjoy their urban day and next week I will blog their beautiful home celebration! Honestly this two definitely know how to do things in style!

Thanks to Jeannine for second shooting this with me.

Jessica and Matt, love you guys! :-) xxx


Asia House Wedding | Anna & Anh

 

From the moment Anna contacted me to ask me to photograph her and Anh’s wedding day I just knew I wanted to be part of their celebrations and capture their memories for them!

Asia House is a beautiful and elegant Georgian building in London with plenty of gorgeous light flooding in, which is a dream to photograph, good light is so important and can make a huge difference to the way your images look. There is a place for mood lighting and shadows  but a well lit room with plenty of beautiful daylight always wins.

Anna and Anh have the sweetest little boy Tyler whom I immediately fell in love with the first time I saw him. They adore him and he was very much part of the day.

It always touches me to witness so much emotion and love and the way Anh looks at Anna with his adoring eyes it’s so heart warming. These two were definitely meant to be together and I am so grateful to having been there with them to capture their day.

Thank you again for choosing me and thanks to my lovely friends Ilaria and Jeannine for photographing alongside me.
