The story behind the image

I had been scouting the location of an upcoming wedding and found this historic church – the Hofmarkskirche in Bernried – so beautiful that I think it’s worth sharing with you. (Wikipedia has more details about the chruch, in German.) It is located about 50 minutes (by car) out side of Munich. The Starnberger See is just a footwalk away and inspires for many stunning wedding photos if the weather plays along.

Long story short: Despite the detailed preparation we could not do many stunning outdoor shots at the day of the wedding, because it was really cold on that day. The peak temperature on that day in June was about 8 °C, and it was slightly raining. The bride was covered by a warm jacket most of the time and would only pull it off for a few shots.

In the end, they were quite happy with their images, as you could not really see the mediocre weather. Which is very nice.
