Styled bridal shoot in Regensburg


“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald

I love to photograph people that inspire me. Melanie is one of them. I saw her pictures on Instagram and I knew right away that I want to capture her face and personality, not only for her looks, but because she got something in her eyes that made me want to know her better. So after a few messages, here we are, making photos together, becoming friends. I ask her to pose as a bride for me, but little did I know that she is getting married for real, in April and I am the lucky girl who is going to document her big day. 

She is beautiful, passionate, she has an uplifting spirit and I enjoyed every second of our short session. I can't wait for our next adventure! 

Love, Lari
