— Love —

"I am home. I have arrived."
9 weddings in 2018.
For people that truly & deeply love each other - at 3250 EUR per wedding.
9 Portraits in 2018.

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 —
"When you are in existential bliss you radiate that, (..) you realise the meaning of life (..). "
"Yoga is an invitation (..) a gentle all open invitation to shift from an existential burden to existential bliss. When you are in existential bliss you radiate that, (..) you realise the meaning of life (..). Because otherwise life is meaningless. Yoga is ultimately dropping all projections and experiencing the meaning of life, which cannot be contained in any ideology. That‘s why yoga is not an ideology, it‘s really, for me, it‘s an invitation to the meaning of life. Yoga and this awakened way, (..) it‘s not something you do to get a better life, the better life is just a by-product that happens.”
- Anand Mehrotra.
— The APPROACH/ A WISH —
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.
— Office tuesdays —
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. So, to make sure you and all other clients feels heard and cared for, you guys receive a special email address which I check more frequently and definitely reply on Tuesdays. Some weeks prior to your wedding you will also receive a phone number, so you reach me anytime 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.
