*Brautrausch [braʊtraʊʃ]
German word, made-up from the words 'Braut' (=bride) and 'Rausch' (= a state of ecstasy), referring to especially the bride's ecstatic mood on the wedding day, but may as well be used for the groom.


So, whatever you are up to on your wedding day and no matter how ecstatic it will be, I'm going to be there, treasure your story and provide you with simply great wedding photography. I have more than a decade of wedding experience to share with you. I'll be your solid rock when things get stressful. I'm going to capture your tears and your laughter, be part of the gang, party hard and cover your wedding day in stunning photos - honest, natural and unobtrusive.

Can't wait to see you!

  • Irish Wedding in Connemara

    Babs & Paul

    Irish Wedding in Connemara

    Of a Limerick Man who lost his heart to a Galway Girl

    Wedding photos in the hills of Connemara

    The west of Ireland is like a second home to me. Again and again I've spent a lot of time there in the last few years - not only for personal reasons, but more and more also for weddings. Partly it's German couples with a passion for Ireland who want to get married there. But more frequently my couples are Irish. That means beautiful weddings with a lot of friends and relatives. Just like the wedding of Barbara (Babs) and Paul in Connemara.

    Babs is from Mweenish Island, in the Southwest of Connemara, County Galway. And even if her job as an art teacher brought her far North to County Donegal, she is technically still a true Galway girl.

    Paul is from Limerick in the southwest of Ireland. He is a graphic designer and real Limerick man. And so Paul struck the same fate like the guy in the famous Irish song: "So I took her hand and I gave her a twirl. And I lost my heart to a Galway girl." Luckily Babs' and Paul's story has a happier end than in the song.

    These two are really great people whom I'm really happy to call friends now.
    Go raibh maith agaibh - Thank you both for the great time!

     

    Small disclaimer:

    I've shot this wedding quite a while ago. But since it's been kind of a kickoff for many more Irish weddings and for the concept of Wild Atlantic Weddings, I just cannot keep these photos from you. And yes, there are loads of them. Stop crying.  ;)

    Head right on to the gallery

    A Morning in Ireland -
    Getting Ready, Coffee and Hurling

    We meet in Barbara's childhood home on Mweenish Island in southwestern Connemara. Here on Muigh-Inis, as the little island is called in Irish, spent a large part of her life. And only a few minutes from there, Paul proposed to her on the beach.

    The house is already full of family and a whole team of hair-and-makeup people, looking after everybody. In the kitchen breakfast is prepared and coffee and gossip are waiting. In front of the house, the car is being washed and the dog is already chewing on the wedding decoration. An absolutely normal wedding morning.

    The bridal bouquet and flowers for the bridesmaids have arrived

    Babs getting ready in her childhood home on Mweenish Island

    Paul - who has been perfectly briefed not to be late - is already dressed. Therefore the boys have plenty of time for a walk around the island, for a little hurling match and ... well, for Batman and the Minions. But see for yourself.

    For Babs things are getting serious too. And with her way into the dress also her nervousness grows.

    Groom, Groomsmen and ... eh ... socks

    The pocket watch was a present from Babs - it's engraving says "Don't be late"

    Church Ceremony in Carna

    Paul and the boys are waiting on time at St. Mary's Church in Carna. And in the end, it's Babs who is too late. And even if Paul would happily tease her for that, an universal wedding rule applies here: "The bride is allowed to do anything she likes!"

    Before the ceremony it's time to check the details

    Serious business, you know!?

    What follows is a wonderful wedding with the good-humored Father Brian Ó Fearraigh. Parts of it are in Irish language and I do not understand a word. But it sounds impressive and a little bit exotic.

    During the ceremony, there are also a few gifts. Father Brian has brought what the two seem to need most: Canvas for Babs and her art class who is always short on supply. Any idea what he got for Paul? It's hair!

    Stopover at the Pub for a Guinness

    Outside the church we are greeted by totally inappropriate weather: clouds, rainy and wind. But who cares? For one thing, this is perfectly Irish. And on the other hand, there are certainly half a dozen pubs on the way to the party venue in Screebe - including Coyne's Bar in Kilkieran. At this very place we haven an unplanned stopover - to warm up again and get a the first Guinness officially tapped by the bride. That too is very Irish.

    But then something happens that has never happened to me before ...

    Wedding photos on with rain and muddy roads. Hell yeah!

    There's always time for a Guinness

    Wedding Couple on the Run

    My bridal couple disappears without a trace. No joke. Suddenly the two are gone and nobody knows of their whereabouts. I had planned some wedding photos on the way to the venue with the hills of Connemara in the background.

    So I jump in the car and chase into the direction of Screebe House. Halfway I spot their Bentley in the rearview mirror - parked on some muddy side track. Hard braking, shift in reverse gear and we take pictures - in the rain, while the bus and the various cars with weddings guests pass us by the top of the road. Weddings really are something like cat-herding.

    Reception and Wedding Photos at Screebe House

    Finally, we arrive at Screebe, a wonderful Victorian country house from the late 19th century. There we meet up with the already waiting guests for the reception.

    And as the rain outside grows stronger, we enjoy the crackling peat fire and two musicians playing Irish traditionals. Time to kidnap Babs and Paul for some relaxed wedding photos around the house.

    Cozy reception with Irish Trad Session

    Rain and wedding photos are a perfect match.

    At least you have an excuse to snuggle up somewhere warm

    Dinner and Party at the Marquee

    Right afterwards, we join the guests at the marquee - that kind of an elaborate party tent offering a lot of space and a solid wooden floor for big dancing later on. After an excellent meal and speeches that were exceptionally good - emotional and entertaining - the time has come. Babs and Paul have their first dance to the music of a fantastic live band. And they all dance the night away.

    Meanwhile the rain has stopped. But at that point, nobody bothers anyway. And so a wedding in Connemara comes to an end. For today.

    Great and extraordinary heartful speeches

    After Wedding Session in the Hills of Connemara

    We meet again for breakfast on the next morning. Together we will have an extensive after-wedding-session across the South of Connemara. But first coffee.

    From thereon we have wedding photos on Irish roads, near lakes and between hills. We meet sheep and donkeys and we experience sun, wind and rain.

    intimate moments on the lakeshore

    Having fun is absolutely allowed

    There are clouds and rain on the horizon. Time to get really close.

    And in the end, we're back on the island where it all started - on the beach at Mweenish Island. This is where it all began. Here Babs got Paul's marriage proposal back then. And here our photo session comes to an end.
    But the story of Babs and Paul goes on of course ...

  • Of Wedding Photographers and Squirrels

    A little (Wedding) Nature Guide

    Of Wedding Photographers and Squirrels

    And what they have in common

    Squirrel at Work

    The wedding high season is about to begin. And so the average wedding photographer is leaving his wintering grounds, where he has spent the off season with his gear acquisition syndrom and discussions in the web with wedding industry colleagues.

    Time to illuminate a special wonder of nature: the parallels between wedding photographers and squirrels. The Red Eurasian Squirrel to be precise.

    So what do wedding photographers and squirrels have in common?

    First of all, both of them look pretty nice and cuddly (at least some of them). They work hard, are very nimble, can hide well and if necessary they climb fantastically.

    And both are dependent on working a lot in summer so they won't starve to death in winter. Because despite their cute looks and all the love they put in their work, squirrels are, after all, mainly concerned about the nuts.

    Gathering the winter supplies

    What the nuts are for the squirrels, for us wedding photographers are the weddings. And they both become rarer and smaller in winter. Of course there are weddings in winter. And yes, winter weddings are unbelievably beautiful. Only - just like nuts - there are far too few to bring the whole wedding industry over the cold season.

    In the end it's always about the nuts

    Wedding Photographer at work

    Saturdays in the wedding season

    So it's easy to explain why we wedding photographers try to save the great Nutdays er Saturdays during the high season for larger wedding packages. Usually there are minimum booking times of 8 hours on Saturdays during that time of the year. Although this may be unconvenient for many bridal couples it's a reasonable decision. We just have to gather the nuts.

    Because as we know from Game of Thrones:

    Winter is coming.

    It all starts in Wiesbaden for Getting Ready. Rike is next door at the hairdresser, while Björn gets ready in their apartment and right afterwards sets off for the wedding location, the winery Weidenmühle in Flörsheim.

    Very important: Björn, do not forget the rings!

    The wonderful old apartment shows no sign of the little misfortune that happened just yesterday while Rike and Björn have been preparing the gifts for the wedding guests.

    Note to myself: When mixing green sauce pesto, make sure that the mixer is really well closed. #greenwalldecals

    Wedding Dress with Boho Flair

    Ready with her hair and make-up, Rike is already expected upstairs by her wedding dress upstairs - a dream in lace, vintage, boho or whatever. I have no idea of ​​fashion, but I simply love this dress!

    Immediately after dressing, we head off to the location, only 15 minutes away. The Weidenmühle is a pretty little winery, right in the middle of Rhine-Main area and yet like a small holiday in the South. There the wedding guests are already waiting - and a visibly nervous groom.

     

    Free wedding ceremony in the gardens

    The wedding takes place in the shade of an old tree in the spacious garden of the Weidenmühle. The branches provide shade and help against the summer heat. From a photographer's point of view, of course, a pity as there are crazy shadows on peoples faces, but it's definitely good for people's mood. So in a wonderful ceremony, accompanied by vocals and guitar, the two finally say YES.

    After a walk through a sea of ​​wedding bubbles a delicious Naked Cake awaits us in the courtyard of the winery and the team of the Weidenmühle care for everybody with their great service.

    Big and small guests are making flower wreaths and in one corner speed-artist Waldo draws great caricatures. There is juggling, painting, playing or just dozing on picnic blankets in the hot summer sun.

    Wedding photos around the winery

    The more than 10.000m² large area of ​​the winery Weidenmühle is a paradise for wedding photos - in any weather.

    Harsh sunlight like today is great for the wedding, but not so funny if you are shooting wedding photos in the afternoon - one of the reasons why I always like to split the portrait session. With a few photos after the reception you are already on the safe side and have the freedom to do some freestyle stuff in the evening - ideally at sunset and with the best light. Just like today: In the afternoon sun we have a walk around the winery which offer countless beautiful possibilities for wedding photos.

    Show cooking and a few more wedding photos at sunset

    In the evening there's show cooking in the barn waiting for us. Wedding on Weingut Weidenmühle means excellent food. It's as tasty as it looks. Though as a photographer you usually won't get between the bridal couple and their food, but when for dessert, the sun is slowly settling, you'll have to take them out into the field and to the vineyards. This is when the Rhine-Main area actually looks a bit like Tuscany.

    First Dance, G & T and Party

    Back in the Weidenmühle, Rike and Björn finally rock the dance floor. A great live band, atmospheric lighting, some gin & tonic and of course party-savvy guests do the rest to make the evening a whole lot finer.

     

    I can highly recommend weddings in the Weidenmühle.
    Thanks taking me there!

    Let's see more photos!

  • What is a Photobooth!?

    Ultimately, the Photobooth is just the logical continuation of the golden picture frame that could be found a few years ago at almost every wedding. Studio flash, camera, remote trigger and a lot of crazy accessories - beards, sunglasses, wigs - these are the ingredients for a successful Photobooth

    Wedding Photography Secret #4

    Rainy Day Wedding Photos

    Why bad weather is a chance for your wedding photos rather than a threat

    Bad weather is not a bad thing. At least not for wedding photos. Okay, you probably think, "Sure, that Mr.Brautrausch with all his Irish weddings. It's always raining in Ireland so he's just used to that." That's only partly true. Sure, I do a lot of Irish weddings. And yes, Ireland has quite a few rainy does. But weather changes frequently during an Irish day. And often enough you'll just have to wait a few minutes in the pub for better weather. Not a bad thing, isn't it? But over here in continental Europe we are more consistent. Less time in pubs and slower changing weather conditions. So we depend on other solutions.

    In terms of wedding photos bad weather is quite easy to handle. Compare it to an outdoor wedding ceremony for example - that will loose a lot more of it's charm when you move it inside. With wedding photos the need to improvise is an opportunity to be incredibly creative. Seeking for rain-safe alternatives will force you to leave your own comfort zone and create something new. Even just looking for a new location is inspiring: Be it the darkly lit indoor location, the bus stop next door or something else with a roof. There are wild experiments with flashes and artificial light - photos that would not be taken in good weather. Get out into nature under dense trees or just go for it with an umbrella. Or just without it...

    Wedding photographers are not afraid of rain.
    Rain is afraid of us.

    wedding photography secret #4

    Be daring! You're equipment is able to do that. And so are you. The only real risk is the couple's mood. If the bride and groom just see their dreamy sunset photos swept away by pouring rain, some psychological skill is needed. But remember, even your couples are not made of sugar. And with a cool couple you can safely plunge into the adventure. It is worth it ..

    Here are two examples from last weekend. Completely rainy and sun already gone. The two (as well as myself) were completely wet afterwards. And happy. And this happiness was real. And it will persist.

    Colourful LED Light and Wedding Photography

    Evening time at a random wedding. There's a lot of light set up for the party mood. Everything looks beautifully colourful. But then...
    That nice colourful light confronts wedding photographers with some challenges when it comes to postproductions. Wheras conventional spotlights get their colours from coloured filters, LED lights work differntly. Filters are designed to allow light with a certain colour to pass through. But other parts of the colour spectrum are not completely blocked. They are not as prominent, but they are still there, making the pictures still usable for correction.

    If your sliders for temperature and tint in Lightroom have reached their limits at 50.000 and -150 it's clear:
    The DJ gave everything with his LED lights.

    wedding photography secret #3

    Colourful LEDs just don't have a full colour spectrum. Already white LEDs (which are in fact either a mix of green, red and blue ones or a blue one bent to yellowish) don't deliver consistent colours. With LED light is certain colours it's even worse. Their spectrum is usually extremly narrow and other colours do simply not exist in that light. That often leads to horrible colours and to banding and loss of definition while trying to correct that in postproduction.

    The example below is still quite comfortable, as it can be corrected quite well, just using the temperature and tint sliders. They are at their limits though. If I had wanted more I'd needed to take more extreme measures and work with the RGB tone curves from there on - a lot of effortless work for a party pic. Luckily there was no banding in that picture - with single red or blue LEDs that would have been worse.
