Happy Friday friend!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am so glad you are here! Thank you for following along! 👋
This is my tiny corner of the web. 🌱 I am a creative at heart, I love all things pretty, good light, spaghetti, travel and wedding related. Which some years ago lead me to wedding photography. A passion I follow ever since, especially if I get to photograph international couples and eat incredible wedding food ... my heart flies high.
But more so when I get to witness love stories, incredible stories and your story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱 yesterday I drove to Berlin to meet with my Italian friends for the Christmas markets. They I are crazy about the mercatini (how they call it) and I am crazy about them.
All this is a result of studying internationally for a couple of years. Many of my friends are all over the globe. Which is a down and an upside all at once. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱 I love me a good cappuccino, if you have a place to recommend to me here in Bein, shout it out!! 👏 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱 I have a freakishly passionate heart, which sometimes overwhelms me, but other days I decide to head start into all this multi passionate being and embrace it with a very severe case of the special snow flake syndrom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So how about you? What are you up to?
Let me know below, I would love to read from you! 😘

#lariciphotography Ps, it seems to me that every other portrait of me I am holding sunglasses... 🙈 should I drop them again?

This grooms face?
This, right here is what makes this always special, always precious, always unique and always worth the effort. I love capturing weddings because those sparkling eyes never get out of style. One simple glance at his bride. A mere second and I get to go alongside them and watch it all. 😊How cute are those two???
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can´t wait to share more if this precious day with you soon!

Friend,
how did December get so full all of a sudden? Having the same trouble? I know I certainly have. In November I thougth, all under control, and all of a sudden, appointments double, to-do`s pile up and the day seem awkwardly short.
And still, as the year is turning to an end, and the festive spirit seems all important I like to remember the true reason for the season. The heart of Christmas. The tiny heart which was born into a manger to a very young and probably overwhelmed couple. I like to remember that the biggest story of all had a very humble and quiet beginning. I like to remember how God gave himself as a gift.

Maybe today you can take the two minutes out of your day, stand in front of a window and really slow drink that cup you have in your hand to be hurried down. Maybe today you can write a hand written note (with actual paper and a pen) to somebody you wanted to reach out to in a long time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you like to un-hurry your December day?

PS, today we are shooting with @arthelps_ at our studio, to see more follow along with the insta stories 😊

This is about the level of excitement I started my week with. It is a good Monday when you have an intimate winter wedding in a fairy tale like village ahead of you. And more so, the headquarter of one of the biggest chocolate factories in Germany is nearby... oh my! This moment when the only question remaining is how many kilograms... 🍫🍫🍫
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How did your week start? What did you do?

The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
(Isaiah 58) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have a lovely Sunday!

Is there a more elegant way to go to church than a vintage car like this?
I was all heart eyes and alpaca baby vibes over this gorgeousness.
Have a fab Saturday!

Friday is here and I am about to country dance out of the studio. I caught a throat cold. This, my friend, is a cold only stuck in the throat, you see. Which is why I cannot neither laugh nor sing ... (painful, I know) and thus have decided to have a 30 second dance party every twenty minutes. 💃🏽 Just because.
I hope you have a beautiful weekend ahead of you.
🌱 Don't let the December bustle get to you. Have tranquil moments, treat yourself, have gentle thoughts about you, and smile at a stranger like you really mean it, stand somewhere and take in the view. Remember that everything looks different from a mountain and life is always better together. Be kind. And then remember the reason for the season. What we are waiting for in December. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱 I am Rici, a wedding photographer and a positive speaker. I love to encourage people. I like to share life. And the more I know about the path, the more I realise it truly is so much better shared. Have a wonderful weekend!

PS, which movie am I referring to in the description???
#lariciphotography .

I remember walking into a friends birthday party a couple of months ago and being utterly overwhelmed. That sometimes happens... I stood in the kitchen and the prospect of a room full of new people next door produced sheer panic. I wish I had slept more, had something cool to say to strike up a conversation, put a ´lil some mascara on... or at least a camera and a 50m to keep a safe distance... but sometimes life is just what it is (keeping it real here...) and while I now sat on the bedroom floor of my friend (who had kindly invited me to retreat for some tranquility in a calmer room...) I was sniffing away the kleenex at the rate of an Italian nonno downing the big bowl of pasta after a long work day.... I was wondering what the heck was wrong with me?!?! Next minute I remembered some advice for momentarily introverted peaks like this. I prayed to God to just give me one single person to talk to. Just ONE. Only one.
If nothing would come up, I could always leave.
So I bundled up my courage, and walked into the dining room, I sat down next to Judith and stayed the whole night. She was the most beautiful encounter that night and a blessing to my heart ever since. Thank you sweetie for your friendship.
It was an honour to have you in front of my camera! I love having out with you two!

PS, are you also shy with new crowds? What helps you to mingle with new people? I am so curious, let me know in the comments below!

This?
Oh this is just another sunset by the water 😋
Today I feel like the picture perfect fall has left for sure and we get all shades of moody grey sky there are.
BUT, there is a daylight lamp close by and I have short dance parties to spice up the desk work.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tell me, how do you mix up your work day?
I am curious to find new ways!!

I remember it well. A dark overhung midweek day, we were stumbling up hill over frosted bits of vineyard. Aiming for the view on top. I was not even sure why he had come. Crafting in a quick stop between two countries not exactly en route. It was possibly the darkest season I had walked and I was ready to give in. On my dreams, on my passion, on photography and on weddings in particular. The gloom above could easily have been the gloom expanding inside. And at one point not quite on top yet, he turned to me. Halted, carefully choosing his next words.
I simply came to tell you to not loose hope. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have hope!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe those dreams you have, you have them for a reason.
And no matter how dark the path you are on right now... you have this passion for a reason. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱 Friend, maybe today you are doubting your own passion. And are wondering why you have those dreams... why this one thing makes you feel so much more alive than anything else...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And today I wish we could stumble up on a hill together and then I would tell you this:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t. Give. Up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
YOU carry that passion for a reason.
I am absolutely sure of it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe that we all need someone telling us this every now and then. 😘 🌱 And now, for a wonderful new week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ps, what do you think about following your passion? Let me know below. 🙌

December is almost here 🎄 & I am really excited to have all the decorations up. Not necessarily getting them up. But having them around the house. Not to mention that the vintage print of an ice skating mouse in our hallway only came down two months ago... We called her all-year-mouse by then.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On the travel note, I hit the road today to head home to the wild east for a family celebration. Very curious how it will turn out. I am in charge of christmas decor and Have decided on a colour scheme and all. I think five years of wedding photography finally take their toll... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you like the wreath I found in Richmond Park, London?

By now several people have asked me if my blog has died. Today the good news is that it has not.
Or lets say from today on it is in revival mode...
During all of wedding season we have completely neglected blogging (guilty as charged) and I stuck to IG for mini blogging. Thank you to all who sticked around and who asked. You are a charm!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And to kick off the new blog I have the sweetest and most caring wedding couple for you. Check out the blog for all of this days goodness, including a twelfth century church, a castle for the party venue and sunset portraits in the vineyard overlooking a little bit of Black Forest goodness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't you love a little afternoon twirl in the vineyard?
