A while back photographs taken by Russian photographer Murad Osmann of his girlfriend Natalia Zakharova went viral. They’re part of an ongoing series he created called Follow Me and feature his gorgeous girlfriend storming through a variety of incredible landscapes, her hand reaching back to hold his.
The photos are iconic in themselves, with amazing locations only framing the subject matter of their photographs, and each photo seems to share another little snapshot of their world together as a couple.
They’ve been to India:
#followmeto the Taj Mahal with @yourleo. This is the second photo we did in Agra. It was extremely difficult finding the spot to shoot this great landmark from the back as there is a big fence and police surrounding the area. Which photo do you like more this or the previous one? :). @followmetraveller #followmetraveller
#followmeto Sigiriya Lion Rock with @yourleo. Sri Lanka was on our bucket list of places we wanted to visit. We were extremely happy to explore the historical sites of this country, even though it was a challenge getting on top of this rock in a hot weather :). We are definitely coming back. #LeTourDeBochic. Backstage pictures soon on @followmetraveller. A photo posted by Murad Osmann (@muradosmann) on
In fact, they’ve been just about everywhere. They even took a Follow Me photo to mark their engagement:
So when they got married it only made sense that they grabbed the camera and took a photo to mark this amazing milestone!
#followmeto the wedding with my love @yourleo. I promise to hold your hand and tell you I love you every day for the rest of our lives. Спасибо за платье бутик Vera Wang Москва, лучшему агентству @wedoagency и лучшему декоратору @lidseventhouse за эту сказку :)!! A photo posted by Murad Osmann (@muradosmann) on
Their wedding was a big fantastical affair complete with clouds and Unicorns! A completely fitting event for such a perfect couple!
Every big love starts with a big story. And every big wedding starts with a big crew. The fairytale we’ve been in was created by the true professionals. The crew was headed by the best wedding agency in Russia – @wedoagency. Lisa Simonova @lidseventhouse was responsible for decor. She’s the real “impossible is nothing” kind of person. Creative part of the crew was represented by our friends @be_create. The venue was @zhavoronkieventhall. Vera Wang boutique Moscow @verawanggang helped with a beautiful dress, Murad’s suit was made by @mastersuit, second dress by my friend @maya.om and the third one was created in Paris by @svetlana_kushnerova. За каждой большой любовью стоит большая история. А вот за каждой большой свадьбой стоит грандиозная команда. Вся сказка которая была создана, дело рук профессионалов своего дела. Возглавляло которых, лучшее свадебное агенство в России @wedoagency . Декором занималась Лида Симонова @lidseventhouse .Только ей было по силам сделать невозможное.. И окунуть всех гостей в сказку, наши креативные друзья @be_create.. Новая площадка @zhavoronkieventhall . Нас одели наши друзья VeraWang boutique Moscow @verawanggang , @mastersuit подготовил жениха , мое второе платье вышивалось моей подругой @maya.om и третье платье творилось в Париже @svetlana_kushnerova !!
