Are you one of them?
Am I the kind of human
you are looking for to spend your wedding day
or some time to take authentic portraits with?
wanna knWow what you‘re getting into?
I don‘t care about staged poses and too much make up, I believe in whatever makes your heart skip a bit, makes you feel alive, makes you truly sad, truly happy or completely feel at peace. I believe in a life well lived, in time well managed, living with intention, and moments spent with awareness openness and acceptance, no matter what they are like. I am also a yin yoga teacher and that‘s how I teach, live and create. I want you to have real experiences and me just accidentally being there and capturing what‘s happening, not the other way around. Prepared sets and directed scenes are for advertising campaigns and models, not for real human beings. I will interact, we will co-create, but we won't have a magazine like editorial production. Cause I‘m into the real stuff, no matter how messy, how ordinary it gets, my gift is to see the light within and if we trust each other I can capture this light in the best way possible. Let‘s dare to truly love, in every kind of way, and maybe if we can keep a memory of that, that‘s all there is to do.
And with an industry that develops more and more trends, with colleagues that start earlier and have better equipment for smaller money, it it not about what we see, about phrases and catchy designs, it is about what we feel, and not just temporarily, but real, authentic feelings, the good and the bad stuff. So honestly, I‘m your photographer when you feel like falling in love with what you see and read, like wanting to spend time with me as a person, like everything you would if it was not for the money, not for the wedding day, not for others, but for us as people and the time we spend together, then this is it and you should get in touch. Cause your time is precious, and mine is, too. Let‘s cherish this and make it count. This short lifetime of ours.
How do we communicate,
how to get things started?
We will communicate through email (and if you fill out the form ‘become part of the family‘ you get a faster reply, if you use the firstname.lastname@example.org I check that address once a month) and through that form of writing and exchanging thoughts take the time to actually formulate the words we want to stick with the other person, we then meet in person, to really get to know each other, to create a bond and trust, to take time, a trust and unfolding that makes taking pictures artistically and practically so much easier and life so much more worth living. Closer to your wedding you will also receive my phone number, so you can reach me anytime to ensure you are safe when the nervousness hits or real shit hits the fan or you just wanna talk. I don't use WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, I use Facebook and Instagram via Browser only, and whenever I post something, doesn't mean I am online or have notifications turned on, that‘s why I don‘t see the comments and messages and will not reply right away, I usually check all channels once a week, but that, too, is not mandatory. This approach has proven to be the right for me, is never set in stone, always evolving and constantly changing whenever change is needed, but the right thing to cherish and value deeply every connection and to breathe freely with all that work and play going on - business or personal - we all deserve a little space. Plus I am great with time management and juggling different areas of life guided by intuition which alles goes hand in hand with other jobs, having kids, freelance and personal projects while maintaining self-care, a social life and partnership and simply real life and taking time for nature and being outdoors - more about that in my Yin Yoga & Slow Living workshops & retreats or some yin yoga events for you to calm down.
And how do things work when it comes to money,

Just so you know what you‘re getting yourself into.
