You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away.
Various Artists – You are my sunshine
When I first met Alexandra and Johannes, I was convinced that we were a good fit. In fact we all were, so it was out of the question that I would be shooting their wedding in June '16.
It became clear that they were not your regular couple when Alex came walking down the aisle jamming to "Love is in the air"; and when Johannes dropped on one knee to sing "You are my sunshine", even the official got teary-eyed. So did the photographer, to be completely honest. All along the way it was made clear that their sweet daughter was as important as they were in this wedding and she even got a tiny little ring for herself. After the ceremony we had a lot of time to enjoy a cool beer at the Datsche and do the couple's shots. (Don't you just adore the room with the blue wallpaper? If you do, you should come to the Datsche and see it in action, because it's actually a stage. My city has got some exciting places to offer after all.) Later that afternoon we joined the guests at Hallenhausen, where our happy couple met and fell in love about ten years ago. The location was dear to their hearts and their beautiful family and friends went out of their way to transform the spot into a circus-themed wedding location that would put most music festivals to shame. Here's to you, Alex and Johannes!
