Elegant and opulent Bantry House couple’s session
We love the passion our Fine Art Curation members have for their craft so when film photographer Angelika Krinke created some stunningly elegant wedding inspiration in the depths of romantic Ireland with stylists Pearl & Godiva, we were blown away with the luxurious, high end fashion edge to this editorial. From the sleek black lines to the timeless location of Bantry House, we're head over heels this Valentine's Day for this opulent inspiration.
From photographer Angelika Krinke: “To work with Pearl & Godiva was an inspiration to create outstanding work. I always like to remind myself to “live my brand” and to me, fine art photography is not just defined by the type of photographs. It´s not only what I choose to shoot, but how I shoot it, what I shoot it with, and what happens after the image has been captured. Pearl & Godiva enabled me to “build the shoot” consistent with my brand. They understand the relationships between wedding planner and fine art wedding photographer, and build a collaborative environment between art and wedding photography in which I can produce my best work.
As a wedding photographer I know that weddings are complicated, intense events. I am not only shooting portraits but also landscapes, still lifes, architecture and candids. The unique location of Bantry House with it's great landscape was full of beautiful antiques and a joy to photograph.
There are still very few companies in the wedding industry that create weddings in a fine art style and who do it well. Pearl & Godiva are the best of them and it was a honor and pleasure to work with them.”
