meet this young, fresh and relaxed couple: frauke and
tobias – eh, sorry, tobi. i know him for more than a decade now and never heard anyone say ‘tobias’. until their wedding day, i guess.
how do i start? they met at the pitch. the same pitch where i met his brother a few years earlier – only we didn’t end up walking down the aisle. but that’s a different story…
tobi was top scorer for the men’s team of bv werther, frauke and i were kicking for the ladies’ team. i guess, frauke laid eyes on tobi the minute she met him because she knew he was the one. she simply knew it. later, tobi became head coach of the ladies’ team and these two got to spend even more time together. and then during a winter walk in the snowy mountains, tobi popped the question.
one day, i got a message from frauke asking for my wedding packages, ‘for a friend’. yeah, right, ‘for a friend ;)’ i messaged her later when i heard of their engagement. i was out of their budget but i offered that i would shoot their wedding more or less as a gift if i didn’t get booked that day, under certain conditions though. their wedding took place only two months after pia had passed and i figured it would be the best way to get back on track. i must admit, it was hard at times because pia was supposed to be there, too, and that missing spot was hurting everyone i assume.
frauke and tobi had a laid-back wedding and one heck of a party! i had mixed feelings about who i would meet that day but it turned out to actually feel really good to meet that bunch of people from the past and present. i had a blast once i put down the camera for good and i am pretty sure frauke and tobi had their best day ever, so far ;)
