Our good friends, Allison and Florian, are getting married. I was asked if I would like to join them to visit a wedding photographer named Stephan Rauch — nick named “the happiness catcher” — who was having an open house.

As an aspiring photographer, I have been contemplating what it would be like to photograph weddings for a living. I admit, I have a little ways to go.

What we encountered were some stunning images, and as one might suspect, we were bombarded by ever-joyous moments and faces, from every corner of the world.

But almost more inspiring than the photography itself was the way the space engaged you: high ceilings and enormous windows, all the while being surrounded by large images projected on the walls.
