As wedding photographer in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

wedding seychelles contribution 1038

On Tuesday, 28 May 2013 I received an email from Aike - an old "internet acquaintance" from the Rhine-Main area - I was quite surprised when I read his name, because I hadn't heard from him for at least six or seven years!

Aike is an excellent Travel and landscape photographerIn the middle of the "noughties" we exchanged regularly by e-mail on the topic of the "noughties". Photography and met us in November 2005 at Frankfurt Airport, when I flew with Sabrina from there to Palau (Micronesia) - because Aike was kind enough to lend me a mobile data storage device, on which I could store my travel photos in Palau.

So far, so good. For years we didn't hear from each other again - until the aforementioned mail at the end of May 2013, in which Aike told me that during a holiday in Namibia he had met the lovely Rossana from Brazil, the "woman of his life"! The two had planned to meet in early September 2014 in Rio de Janeiro zu heiraten und wollten erfragen, ob ich nicht Lust hätte, die Hochzeitsbilder zu machen! 😀

Of course I wanted to - but unfortunately there were already several weddings in Germany in September 2014 on my calendar! Fortunately Rossana and Aike decided to have a wedding in mid-October and our common "Adventures in Rio" stand somit nichts mehr im Wege… 😀

Rossana comes from Rio de Janeiro and together with Aike had chosen probably the most beautiful wedding location you can find in Rio. Sugar Loaf married and then celebrated in high spirits.

It was totally interesting to see how much Brazilian wedding doch von einer deutschen unterscheidet. Das Abendessen fand mehr “nebenher” statt, indem sich jede/r über den gesamten Abend verteilt das nehmen konnte, wonach ihr/ihm gerade der Sinn stand. Aus diesem Grund war die Tanzfläche auch bereits ab 19 Uhr den ganzen Abend lang proppevoll! In der anderen Hälfte des Saals war ich damit beschäftigt, Dutzende von Kleingruppenfotos zu machen – und das mitten im Raum zwischen den jeweiligen Tischen. Bei den Hochzeiten in Deutschland wird hier meist penibel ein passender, neutraler Hintergrund ausgesucht, bevor mit den Kleingruppenfotos begonnen wird. Auf dieser brasilianischen Hochzeit war das völlig anders: Hier ging es mehr darum, dass alle Personen zu erkennen sind… 😉

Bei jeder neu gebildeten Konstellation schlug einem die südamerikanische Lebensfreude entgegen: Alle grinsten breit und lachten – und am Nebentisch wartete man schon sichtlich vorfreudig darauf, dass man gleich selbst an der Reihe ist, Braut und Bräutigam um den Hals zu fallen und ein kleines Gruppenfoto erstellen lassen zu können! Und auch der Fotograf wurde von so manchem Gast gedrückt und geknuddelt! 😀

the great live band really gave full throttle and the cocktail bar, where i later also refreshed myself and where i was allowed to enjoy the probably most delicious caipis of my life, was well frequented. much too early the party ended at 10:30 p.m. well, that's unfortunately the custom at brazilian weddings, as i was told. the whole evening i was under "pleasant high tension" and only allowed myself two short breaks of a few minutes - one to enjoy at least one of the many excellent courses of the dinner and another one to get some fresh air outside and enjoy the view of the moonlit sugar loaf.

I could tell you a lot about this exciting and highly interesting Wedding in Rio und natürlich auch über die Stadt an sich erzählen – aber ich lasse lieber Bilder sprechen. Die meisten hiervon in Farbe und nur ganz wenige in Schwarz-Weiß – denn das würde dieser temperamentvollen und kunterbunten südamerikansichen Hochzeit nicht gerecht werden. Viel Spaß beim Betrachten der Bilder! 😀
