Welcome back to my blog. I have a real treat for you guys this week showing the true advantages of having natural lighting included in the chronology of your wedding photography.
This week was the wedding of the beautiful Ekaterina and Aleksy. This awesome couple from Russia now live in Santiago and I was delighted when they chose me to be their special wedding photographers for this very special day.

This wedding was a fantastic experience as its been a while since I have attended such an event steeped in the rich traditions from whence they came, smashing glasses, breaking plates, crowns in the church, McDonalds, amazing choir voices.....WAIT....Mc Donalds?....Oh Yeah, you have to meet these two to realize they are up for anything....Fantasticly crazy in the best possible way. When I proposed a few Ideas to Ekaterina a while back her exact reply was "Gardner, what ever you want us to do...we are fine with ...."  Awesome...so..lets trash the dress   ha ha ha...

The day started out in Recreo where bride and friends begin getting ready inbetween the champagne of course.
 

 
While getting the hair done our bride begins learning her lines
 
Dress full of AWESOMENESS !!! you think it looks good now?...wait till you see the bride it!!
 
I kept a hold on my shoe fettish this week as there are so many other photos to show you...but believe me, I have other shoe fotos :0)
 
And Shazzaam  Shes ready...!

 

Now lets skoot over to Vina del Mar to see if Aleksey and his boys are good to go

 

 

They alll look ready from this angle...but Aleksey...Wheres your hat???  Ah yeah, thats better

In keeping with the Russian style and tradition the lady guests wore fantastic headscarfs

After the ceremony it was a quick escape...in a high speed vehicle, One Horse Power

It is actualy amazing what you can buy in  the Super Market these days...Aleksy got himsef a real bargain !
 

 

 

After almost getting arrested for this we were all feeling a little hungry..
