I have just finished shooting a once in a life time assignment, photographing a couple in the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, a museum that rivals the Louve in Paris and the National Gallery in London.
It was a rare opportunity to use one of the premier museums in the world as the location for the wedding shoot. It was a breathtaking experience where I had unrestricted access for the day. Photographing around original works by Rubens, Leonardo, Raphael, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso and Rembrandt’s was simply inspiring.
I couldn’t resist using a Rembrandt in the background of one of the images from the day.
The experience certainly makes up for the -20 degree temperatures.
