What is special about wedding photography?
Wedding photography should tell your story in pictures, so it is especially nice if they are captured authentically, vibrant, emotional and real. Make your day the way you are and want it to be, without paying attention to other imaginations and habits. To make your story complete it is especially nice to capture the important moments of the day. Starting with the preparation, the calm before the storm. These are the moments that you will never see from the other person. And believe me, these are some of the most emotional moments of the day. To end up with the opening dance or the first party pictures will make your day and your pictures become a real story.
Yes of course! If you would like to have me at your wedding in Germany, Europe or even worldwide, I would be happy to a join you. For me there is no better mixture than love, photography and travelling. You can book me for your I dos wherever you want to promise each other your life together.
Do you also offer a wedding film?
Since 2018 I have been offering a highlight video in addition to wedding photography. This will put the icing on the cake for your wedding photos, because your moments will be captured even more vividly. When you book a highlight video through me, you also have the advantage that we only come as a small team and therefore there are not too many people around you (in contrast to when a second team is booked). In addition, everything comes from one source and the style you wish for the pictures is kept. Feel free to have a look at my wedding films.
How long will you be with us at our wedding?
My wedding photography package starts on weekends (Friday and Saturday) from a duration of 8 hours. This includes, depending on the schedule, the moments from your preparation to the party. Typically couples book between 8-12 hours of coverage.
On weekdays I also offer smaller wedding packages.
How far in advance should we book you?
As soon as you have fixed your date! That is usually as soon as you have booked the location. In general you can never tell how long in advance a date will be booked. I take bookings about 1-1.5 years before the date. More popular dates, around holidays, are sold out faster, but sometimes they are still available at short term. So please contact me as soon as you know your date. Even without a long time in advance your date can still be free.
Dates for shorter wedding photography or smaller shootings (engagement, after-wedding, maternity, etc.) can’t be fixed so far in advance. Especially for outdoor shootings the weather should play along, which can only be foreseen at short notice. Therefore, please let me know your ideas and wishes and we will fix an approximate time frame for your shooting.
Which languages do you speak?
I speak German and English, and if it doesn’t work out with hands and feet, then we’ll try the language of love.
Will you come as a team?
Yes, for a duration of 6 hours or more there will always be an assistant. On the one hand, to help me and you during a relaxed process, so that I can concentrate fully on you and your moments. On the other hand as a backup in case something should happen to me (never happened before!).
Which packages do you offer?
My wedding photography full day coverage starts with a duration of 8 hours and contains at least 500 pictures, edited in portfolio quality. You get your pictures in high resolution as a password protected gallery with download link for you and your loved ones. The exact number of pictures depends on your schedule and the duration of your booking. The editing can take up to 6 weeks in the high season, but usually it is much faster. Feel free to contact me for more information and details email@example.com.
How do we know that we fit?
You have probably already looked at my pictures when you came to the questions and answers section and I guess that’s a good sign : ) Of course it is important that you like my pictures and my style. But a wedding is not only about the final product, your pictures, but also about many intimate moments on your day and during the planning, which you share with someone you might not know that well yet. If you have already stumbled across my “about me” page or follow me on Instagram, you are welcome to get some impressions of me. And if you think this fits, just say “hi” : )
What I especially appreciate about couples is when they celebrate their day the way they want to. Without picking up all the traditions, just because it’s done this way. But it doesn’t have to be like that. It can be celebrated the way you want it to be, and most importantly, the way you are. After all, it is about you and celebrating your love. Stay yourselves and then it can only become the way you want it to be.
Can we get to know you?
Sure! I always recommend getting to know each other, whether in person or via Skype! Most of my couples book me before a personal meeting, because they already got to know me through my website, instagram, recommendations or another wedding. We can also have a call for a first impression before booking. I always recommend the personal meeting as soon as the schedule for your day is basically set. Then we can not only get to know each other at our get-together, but if necessary, we can also adjust your day and schedule.
You are welcome to visit me during the week in Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen (please understand that my weekends are always very busy and the little free time I have is reserved for my loved ones).
For smaller wedding reportages (<8 hours) we can have a chat via phone or skype.
