Zurich | Civil Wedding | Zivilhochzeit: J & N

Am 12.12.2013 bekam ich ein Email…

…für unsere zivile Hochzeit am 20.12.2013 um 14:30 Uhr im Stadthaus Zürich suchen wir kurzfristig einen Fotografen…

Ich war verfügbar und jetzt ganz ehrlich……. was für ein Glück, ich durfte so ein tolles Paar wie J und N an ihrer Trauung fotografieren. Die Zwei wohnen mit ihrer kleinen Tochter in Deutschland und kamen speziell für die Trauung nach Zürich. An ihrem “grossen” Tag waren die beiden ganz locker und super gelaunt, was mir sehr viel Freude bereitete und half, das Paar ganz natürlich zu fotografieren. Es war eine ganz kleine Gruppe: J und N mit ihrem süssen Töchterchen und die Trauzeugen, einfach ganz unkompliziert und fröhlich… Die grösste Herausforderung an dieser Hochzeit war für mich, bei so wenig Personen unauffällig zu bleiben… Ich hatte auf jeden Fall einen grossen Spass, ja man könnte sagen, es war mir eine Ehre:-)……

Liebe J, lieber N, ihr seid ein wunderschönes Paar und ich wünsche euch alles Gute für euer gemeinsames Leben .

St. Gallen | Civil Wedding | Zivilhochzeit: Sandrine & Leigh

As I sit at my desk in Freienbach,Schwyz and am wondering where the sun has gone to, I automatically feel a little warmer going through Sandrine & Leigh’s wedding photos from last summer. What a fantastic day it was to photograph these two lovely people…again. (Their Couple Shoot). Both of them were very relaxed and this carried on into the day as well. The ceremony took place in the Rathaus in Gemeinde Berneck, St. Gallen.
Sandrine & Leigh are perfect examples of why I love to photograph weddings. Accompanying a couple as in love as them and capturing their special moments on their day is simply amazing. I wish you both a beautiful life together.

- Olivier

Zurich | Civil Wedding | Zivilhochzeit: Iris & David

It was at a volleyball tournament where they first met 9 years ago. If you already read the engagement post, you’ll know that David missed all his trains that night, for just a little more time with this beautiful girl he met only hours earlier. He braved the cold and a risky bicycle ride back home (her bicycle) in half snow, half slush because that’s what a man does when he’s met the one.

Nine years later…Iris and David, had their civil wedding on the 14th of June 2013. Whilst I look forward to photograph them in a years time at their church wedding; it was a great pleasure for me to accompany and document the first step of the next part of their journey.

I met them @ Coiffure Valentinos in Zurich.

Bern – A bride and her husband to be

This post is long overdue. Say hi to Evelyn & Aenea. When I first met them at the end of March this year, I could see that little special something in their eyes. They stood together in the parking lot as I walked up to them and Evelyn beamed the kind of infectious smile that lights up a room. As they talked about themselves a little, the glances they gave each other told the unspoken bits of their story. A couple very much in love, wanting to take that next special step in the story of their lives. It’s from the little glances they gave each other that I knew, this was going to be an awesome engagement shoot. Check out the photos below.

Tschüüs,
olivier!

Meet John | How a headshot is made

Meet John. He works for an international company in Zürich. Like all professionals at one point in time you’ll need a new headshot. Could be for the corporate intranet, for xing or linkedin perhaps for your CV. I’ve done a few of these corporate type headshots and I figured I will explain how I get from start to finish.

After you’ve asked me to take a headshot for your CV, company profile etc…I will tell you to bring the following:

  • Two different jackets (for women too)
  • Two or three different ties (not necessarily for women)
  • One whiteshirt (My female clients would bring two or three different blouses one)
  • One fantastic smile

Throughout the entire photoshoot we mix and combine the above.

Next comes a testshot where I test the light, your skin, your profile and so on:
john-ambe-olivier-meier-hochzeit-fotograf-portrait-osmeier-001

 

Perhaps a tie needs straighting, or someone locks of you ladies’ hair needs taming. Enter my wife:

john-ambe-olivier-meier-hochzeit-fotograf-portrait-osmeier-002

 

Next I shoot you. I talk to you, I get you to loosen up and relax, which results in photos maybe not appropriate for the CV, but definitely something for facebook. Like this:

john-ambe-olivier-meier-hochzeit-fotograf-portrait-osmeier-003

 

With all that laughing, we’ve warmed up those cheek muscles. Smiles come easier.

john-ambe-olivier-meier-hochzeit-fotograf-portrait-osmeier-004

 

KER-POW! We’ve nailed that classic black and white headshot. With enough smile to show what a sincere friendly guy you are (this really is describing John), but not too much smile to come across like you’re too much of a goofball for the job. Now on to get that colour headshot…of course there is always time to let the champion inside of you out for that Muhammad Ali moment:

john-ambe-olivier-meier-hochzeit-fotograf-portrait-osmeier-005

 

Finally we go for that zen moment where it all gels together. The lens, the clothes, the model, the photographer…the smile:

john-ambe-olivier-meier-hochzeit-fotograf-portrait-osmeier-006

So if you’re interested in a shoot for your CV, company profile, linkedin, xing, zed-card or any other thing you could use a headshot for…give me a shout!

Tschüüs,
olivier!
