Magnus Bogucki’s Wedding in a Castle
“Wedding photography,” says Swiss photographer Magnus Bogucki, “is no longer my passion – but my lifestyle. Every wedding is unique and having the opportunity to capture and “tell” the unique story is what I truly love.”
At a wedding he was covering at the Castello di Morcote, outside of Lugano, Magnus wanted to make the most of the scenic location for a portrait of the bride and groom. He says, “This couple came from Las Vegas to get married in Switzerland so I wanted to create a photo where the couple enjoyed some time for themselves and soaked in the environment around them.”
Shooting with a Nikon D700 and his 24mm f1.4 lens, Magnus attached a PocketWizard FlexTT5 to his speedlight and a MiniTT1 and AC3 ZoneController to his camera. “We had some beautiful light during the day,” he says, “but then the sun disappeared when this image was taken. So I simulated the sun by adding a yellow filter on the flash and shooting from the side. Very simple setup.”
Beautiful photos of a beautiful event! Take a look at a few more picks from the day here and see much much more on Magnus’ blog.
