It was a pleasure to take photos for Steph and Rob at the gorgeous Bad Shauenburg Restaurant and Hotel in Liestal. It was an absolutely stunning location and the food and service throughout the day was just amazing – I don’t think I’ve seen a more appetising desert buffet in my life! Luckily the rain abated for the day too and it was just gorgeous all day. The ceremony under the tree was just beautiful and I sincerely wish you a very long and happy life together.

So hard to only pick out a few images for now, the whole day was amazing, here are just a few images as a sneak preview. I’ll get the slideshow to you both soon, but for now here are a few memories from the day:

And all the guests after the ceremony under the tree:

This family sure kept me on my toes.  Another shoot in and around Basel, we started at the Munster and enjoyed playing in the glassless arched windows in the courtyard at the back.  With three little kiddies I had my hands full and they were all full of bags of energy.   I love that mum just seems to be giggling in all the pictures I took.  

Getting everyone to sit in one place and place some sort of attention my way was a challenge, but hey, that’s why they booked me, right!?    Had I known that my secret weapon was my little credit card polaroid camera, I would have used it earlier..  Once the older two saw how that worked (in particular, the older boy) he was happy to do anything I asked and was quietly working out how many weeks of pocket money it would take to get himself one!  Too cute.

Another happy family.  Super tanned from their sunny summer holiday together too – perfect!

Such a cheeky little monkey:

Loving the polaroid!  

I was quite happy to find that there was a new photographer arrived in town (about a year ago now). We first met at a Connexions event whilst enjoying the well organised Wine Walk. Since then, we have talked shop, exchanged ideas and have enjoyed sharing our love of photography. One day I hope to have him share his dark room skills with me so I can develop myself the rolls of 120 film I’ve taken on my Hasselblad.

Irving knows photography and cameras inside out and back to front. Having moved from New York with his lovely wife, he is now teaching again here in Basel. Are any of you interested in a photography course? Lots of my clients ask me for such things and I can wholeheartedly recommend Irving. You don’t have to have a DSLR, just a camera that has manual settings (so no iphone cameras!). If you want to make the most of your camera this is a great place to start.

Here are the details:
