Juliane and Hanz met in Moscow, when Juliane was an exchange student, studying languages, and Hanz was enrolled in engineering school. Juliane returned home to Manhattan at the end of the program, and three years later, Hanz found work as a civil engineer in Brooklyn. They had lost contact while apart, and after a serendipitous reunion at a coffee shop in Brooklyn, it was apparent that destiny had played a hand in getting the two together. They were a couple within days, started living together the next month, and were engaged before the year was out. When it came time to plan their wedding, they knew it just had to be in Moscow, near the university plaza where they first met.
They contacted Simon, at the referral of a mutual friend who had used Pixelford Photography for a wedding in upstate New York, but assumed he’d recommend calling someone in Moscow.After meeting Simon, and seeing the large body of awe-inspiring wedding photography shot by the Pixelford Photography team, Juliane and Hanz were determined to hire Pixelford.
As luck would have it, Simon was shooting a commercial shoot in Europe later in the year, and after hearing the couple’s story, he was easily persuaded to book their wedding shoot. Juliane and Hanz couldn’t have been happier with the photos, shown here, and have called Simon their “White Knight Behind the Camera Lens.”
