Enviable Vintage-Cool

A cute couple, both us glasses and fabulous fashion with that enviable vintage-cool vibe (the green dress was Amanda’s grandmother’s) rocking it with records and just generally hanging out…I just …yeah, you know I love it.

Amanda & David hopped around different locations throughout the East Side of Milwaukee for their engagement shoot. All of the places they visited had significance to their first date, the first stop being a record store. On their first date, David bought a record “for himself,” which a few months later he gave to Amanda as a gift. She holds it in one of the photos. They also stopped at Comet Cafe, which was where they had lunch together for the first time. They even brought their own favourite coffee cups for the shoot.

Laid Back Love & Laughter

This beautifully simple backyard wedding makes me long for lazy, summer afternoons once again. Rachel had her dress handmade for her by family members and Kelly rocked it in his pinstripes. The whole day was one of laid back love and laughter.

Winter Warmers & DIY to Die For

This brand spanking new wedding was sent to me by the fabulous Andana Lima. I fell in love with bride’s beehive, her faux fur coat and all the DIY projects involved in making their day elegant and personal.

The DIY projects behind this wedding included the bouquet made out of black and white fabric, the boutonnieres for the groomsman and mother of the bride, the monograms, the wishbook and all the centerpieces and table decorations. Courtney also added her own beads to underneath her shoes. The custom flops were made by J*Flops.

Under the Spotlight – CandySnaps Weddings

this is me

Credit: Christophe Viseux

Yeeey! Another fabulous photographer to share with you, and yet again she’s from Great Britain – or more specifically Scotland – but of course she loves to travel! I fell in love with CandySnaps Weddings‘ fantastic, naturalistic and personal images as soon as I saw them and couldn’t wait to share some of my favourites with you all. Let’s get to know the girl behind the lens first shall we?

Who are you and what do you do?

I’m Caroline Weiss, the photographer behind CandySnaps Weddings.
I’m originally from Germany but have been living in the UK for the last 12 years. I am a reportage wedding photographer, which means that I blend in unobtrusively and record a couples special day rather than direct it. I will take care of the mainly always required group shots too, but I won’t take my couples away for 2 hour for a photo session. I believe that there is no need for set up images and that the best pictures are always of the bride and groom enjoying themselves with their friends and family. It also means that they will look back at their photos and remember their special day how it really happened. I’m one of the few Scottish photographers who have been selected as member of the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association)

Where are you based and what cities/countries are you available to for work in?

I am based in Glasgow, Scotland but am happy to travel anywhere in the UK and Europe, or in fact anywhere you will take me.
