The land of unlimited possibilities: a place, with a lot – if not all – possibilities you can imagine. I love to discover new places, weddings in foreign countries (for example the Cape Verde Islands) which I can photograph. New countries and cultures always fascinate me and especially the United States is a world for it’s own. I already photographed a wedding in Virginia and I can highly recommend, to celebrate a wedding at such a beautiful place.

Marrying in Virginia – everything easier than in Europe?
Alright, honestly, I can only tell you the European experience, but the bureaucracy side for a wedding in Virginia is much smaller than you might think. Especially since it is regulated in many states, that the registrar is not bound to a civil registry, so the ceremonies can be held at other places. There is often a very personal wedding ceremony in the style of German „intimate“ maintained and much is thus greatly simplified. It’s pretty much the same for a church wedding: it’s more relaxed to not have to ceremonies like in Europe, and it saves a lot of time. Instead, you are much more flexible in planning the wedding.
Emotional moments are the core of every wedding photojournalism
A wedding photographer in Virginia – my experience
What I highly appreciate in Virginia is the versatility of the environment: Cities such as Virginia Beach, Norfolk or Richmond offer beautiful venue as the Tuckahoe Plantation and „The National“. But you can also set yourself free from crowded places and celebrate at a barn in the midst of great natural, which the state has to offer, it all depends on you. I had a great experience at White Lotus Eco Retreat, However, there are many other beautiful venues, where you can celebrate your wedding individually.
