Last minute wedding

Hey there! Here are some pictures from the last wedding I attended. My friend Katka, once a great synchronized swimmer (and now in the role of a trainer for World Masters) and eager runner was getting married to Rob, an American runner, who decided to stay here, in Europe.
The wedding was very laid back, guests were asked to come in summer dresses and casual trousers and shirts, and flip -flops. Even the bride wore flats and she really needed to be comfortable, because she was 8 months pregnant.

At this moment, her baby boy is already born (few weeks earlier then he was expected, but they are both in a good health). And today, the synchro girls had a public performance for friends before they leave for the World championship, so she ran away from the hospital just to see them and to wish them good luck :-). She really is a crazy girl :-) !

The ceremony was held outside, ans so was the party. It was a very hot day and by the time we started shooting, we were all completely sweaty. Few minutes before the start of our planned photosession, Rob realized that he forgot his trousers at home! Thank God he made it to the ceremony on time. This is him running to get dressed :-).

Anyway, we moved the shooting to after the ceremony. But because of Katka´s condition and extremely hot weather, we decided not to push it and did only a few pictures and went back to the party. Plus, ants were all over the garden - this is actually the bride trying to get rid of them :-).

Bride and groom are both teachers, so they had their students playing a violin and piano at the ceremony, and it really was beautiful and touching.

Party was a barbecue -style and help - your - self, so you could pick really what you liked. Lots of fruits and refreshing drinks were a must on this crazy hot day.
The live band made us all dance at the end of the day!

Back to reality

So my dears, I am back from my marvelous hollidays. Here are some pictures to give you an idea, what a great time we had. Just relaxing, enjoying sunrises and sunsets.

We even saw dolphins almost every day, this is my best picture of one of them.

Now I am back, and despite it is crazy hot these days, I have to start working on the wedding photos I have taken the night before I left, and I also owe you some more pics from the pregnancy photosession. Please come back soon for those!

Big bellies and baloons

My last long weekend was full of social activities and photography..

First, I traveled to my beloved cottage and finally got the windshields mounted to my windows. I ordered those like an year ago, but the craftsmen were always busy to finish them.
My boyfiend and his friends came twice to visit from a summer music festival nearby. With a little help from my great friend, I even managed to prepare a yummy sunday lunch in the garden for them.

Sunday night we were invited to a birthday party in a beautiful apartment wih a huge terrace. Hosts prepared great food and great fun too (with magic relightning birthday candles and Thai baloons).

Monday was a shooting day for me. I had a photosession with two pregnant friends. Third was my helper and she also offered her gorgeous house to be part of the set. So I couldn´t resist to have a third session with her amazing kids. I ended up with 1017 pictures to go through...I wonder when...

I finished the day in a pool full of synchronized swimmers (2 of those 3 are getting ready for a world masters championship, so I went along for a training lesson).

Did you have fun too?
