Maternity Shoot

Verträumte Babybauch-Session am wunderschönen Silbersee

Es ist immer eine große Ehre und Freude, eine sehr geschätzte Kollegin fotografieren zu dürfen. Und ich muss zugeben, die Erfahrung durfte ich ich mittlerweile recht oft geniessen. Wenn sie aber ihr erstes Kind erwartet, ist natürlich eine solche Session etwas ganz besonderes und als Mutter weiss ich, wie schnell diese Momente vergehen und die Erinnerungen auch leider verblassen. Deswegen bin ich dankbar, dass ich für dieses wunderschöne Paar noch in den letzten Wochen der ersten Schwangerschaft diese wertvollen Erinnerungen schaffen durfte. Elif umarmt mittlerweile ihren gesunden Sohn und ich wünsche ihr unzählige weitere Umarmungen….

Castle wedding in the heart of Muensterland

Elegant castle wedding in the heart of Muensterland by Madalina Sheldon

2017 I was photographing a wedding in California and spending a few day in San Francisco. This lovely couple living in San Francisco contacted me via e-mail wishing for wedding photographs, feeling sorry not being able to meet me as they were living way to far away from Muenster, the Germany city they chose for their big day and I am also based in. I think, the moment I wrote back, “let’s meet in a few days at the Union Square”, they must have been pretty surprised. But this is how we met and planned their wedding in Muenster. And yes, in the end I was the one being allowed to accompany this beautiful wedding.

Jessica and Dennis are another proof that love crosses all borders and survives every distance. And again, I was on this beautiful event and left this celebration with my heart full.

Country Side American Barn Wedding

Country Side American Barn Wedding

I met Michele and Thomas - like most of my clients - online. Michele and Thomas live and work in Chicago. We had a long and fun chat and boy, did I want to photograph this couple. Thousand of miles were between us, but I could feel their warm hearts all the way from Chicago to Germany.

They decided to gather their families and friends in a sweet and tiny german village, where Thomas and his family own this beautiful big barn they chose to celebrate in.

Different cultures collided on this event, but it was so beautiful to see how love speaks the same language…. I will forever be thankful for being the one to create these memories for Michele and Thomas.

I remember like it was yesterday. I met Macey and Alessandro online and the moment they smiled at me I thought: What a beautiful in love couple! I really wished for this wedding to be photographed by me, so obviously I am even more grateful to be able to show this lovely gallery :)

Austrian Wedding In The Vorarlberg Bregenzer Forrest

Austrian Wedding In The Vorarlberg Bregenzer Forrest by Madalina Sheldon

I don't like using words for my photographs. I want my images to tell the story and translate the atmosphere. I am a photographer, not a writer. But for those who wish for more background on this wedding, let me tell you, when beauty meets love and joy, for a people photographer as me, a paradise unfolds. 

Nina & Michael filled their day with laughter and love and everybody joining them, did the same. Yes, this couple has a keen eye for beauty and details - they had a vision and clear expectation for their big day. But they didn't forget the reason they planned this event: Making a big promise and enjoying the presence of their families and friends. 

After one of the most beautiful religious ceremonies I whitnessed in a cozy church in Schwarzenberg, the cocktail hour and reception took place at the classy and rich in history Gasthof Hirschen. 

Blown away by the beauty of this area, I did my best capturing the surroundings, but still: If you ever get the chance to visit the Vorarlberg area in Austria, please don't miss it!
