Earlier this year I was asked to photograph a marriage. A wonderful
thing to do. Especially, as the couple wanted no ordinary album, but a
mix of romantic photos and an authentic journalistic impression of
their "big day"
The happy couple picked a wonderful all weather location for their photo shoot: the airport at Rotterdam, the Netherlands. They both have great interest or are involved in the aviation industry. So, why not pose with an aircraft...
That day the weather was not that great. The METAR showed: 050725Z 01006KT 8000 R24/7500 +DZ RA BKN022 OVC050 18/M21 Q1020 NOSIG. So, we were in and out of the hangar to take photos.
In the middle of the in-between-showers-outdoor-shoot, the flight crew of another aircraft started their engines to taxi to the runway. As jet blast can cause real havoc and destruction on a big wedding dress, the bride made a flight for Airport 1 to shelter from the jet fuel laced mini tornado. All in all a funny situation, that also resulted in a memorable and not so ordinary wedding photo. Mission accomplished!! (including getting the engine of the B737-800 in the shot).
The red line on the apron had a big resemblance with a red carpet, so I left it red in this black and white image.
