“We want to let our love shine like the Advent lights”. With these words Alex and Damon contacted me. And i can’t imagine a better way to tell their story than having an Engagement Session at the Neuer Wall in Hamburg. Its unique festive atmosphere spread by one of the most beautiful Christmas lights in Hamburg is really something special.
Alex & Damon told me a little bit of their story right before our Engagement Session at the Neuer Wall started. I am always trying to capture this very special connection of my couples and have them translated into beautiful pictures. And with Alex and Damon, I knew immediately that they have something unique: one look and the time seems to stop. They have been a couple for 9 years now. And yet there is always this moment when, in a glance, they take off on their very own magical place.
To capture such a moment, to photograph such a beautiful couple, to experience the joy of the finished photos, that’s what I love about my job. But in this case there were still some challenges waiting for us: you can obviously imagine that the Neuer Wall is not exactly empty on the 3rd Advent Weekend, right? A quiet place to put down my backpack and test the lighting in the middle of all this pre-Christmas craziness in Hamburg? Not really possible! So I focused in one goal: have all the shots done in 40 minutes in a relaxed and positive atmosphere, avoiding that my couple freezes (it was 4 Degrees that evening). AND with all the scenes I had imagined in my mind, all the blurry effects and of course the bokeh of the Christmassy Newer Wall in the background. The result you can see in the gallery below.
