Cobblestone Streets and a Medieval Fort City 3


Imagine that as a backdrop for your formal wedding photos. It was a dream come to life for the couple just a few days ago. With 24 people in the bridal party I knew it would be a huge challenge, but my ambition and images of the shots I could get with 24 people in the streets of Dubrovnik, Croatia did not let me take no for an answer.

After loading everyone into six taxicabs for the 15 minute drive to the gates of Dubrovnik, I turned into a little bit of a dictator. I needed to take control and keep the large group focused if I was going to provide them with the quality of work that I have been envisioning the entire morning.

We did some amazing work including some really fun jump shots in the middle of the busy streets. After assuming the roles of coordinator, crowd control and photographer for the entire bridal party, I let them go on their way to explore the city so I could work alone with the couple in their wedding gear in the narrow passages of this amazing town. I can hardly wait for the studio to post the results. From what I saw on the back of the camera I can hardly wait to see the final edit.

    Love your pics, I’m a builder in North West Arkansas. Love architecture. Went to Israel and could have stayed a year! There only 10 days.
    You might find Williamsburg, VA interesting as far as pictures go with Architecture as well. It was nice chatting with you on Facebook. Will continue to pray for your safety.
