Love

This is the page description.

—  Love  —

Let‘s celebrate your love. While I capture whatever is unfolding in front of me.


April until September

Wedding Photography

 

 12 weddings per year from 2950 EUR per wedding.



 

Therefore my wish to the infinite light as an individual is: 
May humanity grow into its consciousness into its awakening, 
to celebrate life as it‘s meant to be.
Because it is silly to suffer,

it is wise to celebrate.
- Ammaji Swamini Pramananda.

 


 

—  my inspiration —

Why I picked this as an introduction to the topic: This short movie is about finding light in the ordinary, the obvious -  the things that scare you, the things that catch your breath, with all the ebb and flow that life is, captured in an aesthetically pleasing way. Because that is how I photograph your love - as raw, deep, imperfect, messy and real as it gets while discovering the beauty within - just like Amber does it: "Finding the light within". And actually finding it to show what lays inside.

—  the APPROACH —


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.
 


 

—  Office tuesday —


I have a policy slowing digital life and life in general down to its essentials:
One day a week I answer emails, messages, comments and plan my tasks and set priorities for the week, this way I can ensure there is enough time and space for the important things like: photoshoots, yoga classes, learning, studying, administration, accounting, researching, practicing yoga, being outdoors, spending quality time with loved ones, cooking, photo editing, website updating, taxes, household chores, inspiration, meditation, writing, organising, shopping, growing herbs and greens, doing rituals and supporting others, swimming, dancing, listening to and watching the stars, strategising, making plans, adventuring, traveling and doing no-thing. 
I don't use WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger or anything else that keeps me glued to the phone, although I post online but mostly scheduled, so I am not on the phone or laptop in that moment plus I don't have notifications turned on. Soooooo, to make sure you and all other clients feels heard and cared for, you guys receive a 24/7 email address where you can reach me anytime, by means of regular business hours while keeping in mind everybody deserves time off and the main day of the week is Tuesday for answering requests. Some weeks prior to your wedding you will also receive a phone number, so you reach me in-time and really 24/7 to ensure you are safe when the nervousness hits or real shit hits the fan ;)  
This approach has proven to be the right for me, is never set in stone, always evolving - but the right thing to cherish and value deeply every connection
- business or personal - I have.

 


 

—  a Wish —

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.

 


 

— Good to know  —


At the time of the booking
for all Packages a 50% non-refundable retainer
is needed to secure the date, 
the rest is due four to TWO weeks before the actual date.


* If we happen to reside in the same city or you guys wanna travel wherever I am, a free engagement session is included to get you used to the camera and my way of taking pictures while creating a real moment and capturing whatever we are up to that day,
which makes it easier for me as well for the big day cause I get to know who you are as people in daily life ;)  You could also use the photos created in that session for your "Save The Date" cards or wedding invitations, if you like.

 ** As for this category to keep things small, cost-effective and simple I will only use one camera body (instead of double backup equipment) and my 40mm pancake lens (which is a wonderful lightweight tool, has the same look as the usual lenses, but is easier to travel with and has one focal length, so perfect for an intimate wedding or portrait session where I don't have to catch guests in casual conversation from afar, but can interact closely). For a full wedding day I still have all the above mentioned equipment with me.
