After Wedding Session in Aschaffenburg Dani & Thorsten

while I’m sitting here & writing about this after wedding session, I’m listening to some smooth Jazz that very much reminds me of that one perfect summer day in July, when I was driving through Aschaffenburg’s fields of gold in search for the perfect spot for Dani & Thorsten’s after wedding shooting. such a perfect day with 2 lovers hopelessly in love with each other. I met Dani a few years ago at a friends birthday party & we connected right away. her sweet & open nature made her very special to me. simply a girl after my own heart. by that time she was on cloud no 9 with this new guy in her life named Thorsten. So when she called me last spring to tell me that they’re gonna get married this summer & they want me to take their after wedding pictures, I couldn’t wait to finally meet this guy, who makes her so happy. I got to know him during our after wedding session & instantly knew that this girl is a very lucky girl to have a husband like him. he only had eyes for her, making s ...

After Wedding Session at Federsee Kalli & Alex

  first of all, I love love love after wedding sessions. they are my favorites. simply because the wedding is over, the wedding day tension is gone, nothing that could go wrong to worry about, the couple is so relaxed & chilled, there is no time limitation, no stress, no obligation to your guests, it’s just the two of you enjoying an intimate moment with each other. simply just the best conditions to get the most amazing pictures. I mean what’s better than this. so when Kalli & Alex asked me to cover up their after wedding pictures at lake Federsee I instantly felt for the idea. since I haven’t been at lake Federsee at summer time, I was dying to see how that sea of reeds would look like all painted in green. I’ve seen so many pictures of the Federsee on the internet so I knew it’s going to be breathtaking & just perfect for a summer after wedding session with them. but it got even more than perfect. these two totally blew my mind. just by arriving at the Federsee in an old Jaguar, a ...

An Irish couple on Mallorca Vanessa & Aaron

I guess miracles do happen from time to time. After months of being absent , I’m back again at this topic called blogging. No better way to start again than with this Mallorca couple session. Last April, right before the busy wedding season started, hubby & I decided to take a short & spontaneous trip to Mallorca just to get some relaxing time. We stayed in Muro, in the north of Mallorca, at the most beautiful Airbnb I have ever stayed at. A typical old Finca in the middle of the ancient town with a beautiful backyard full of lemon trees. While hubby was cycling around Mallorca, I took the time to just relax in my hammock & to find the most gorgeous places on this island. We explored so many hidden beaches & I really felt in love with Mallorca. Who knew this typical holiday island could hide so many beautiful treasures. So while we were exploring the beauty of the not so touristy places, I really wanted to find a couple to have a couple session in one of those special places on thi ...

Wild & Free Love Session in Tübingen Liz & Marcello

Wild & Free will always be my purpose. I can't stress it out enough. This is how I live & this is how I shoot. When I can run free, the best ideas come to me. Being forced doing something that doesn't fit my pursue, will always limit my creativity & my joy of life. As with photography,  most of the time I'm a lucky bitch and such wild & free couples find me. Like these wild ones found me. I mean look at them, aren't they just the bomb, killing it with their hot love for each other. As if it wasn't enough them blowing my mind with their wild & free love, there was this rad location in a gravel pit. But don't ya dare to think this is enough. If you would have asked me before what could have made this shoot perfect, I would have said, well a nice sunset & a stunning couple in love would do. Nope that shouldn't do. Told ya I'm a lucky bitch. Yep mother nature got big plans, rewarding us with an amazing sunset full of sun, a rainbow & my two all time favorites RAIN & WIND! I m ...

Boudoir Loft Boudoir waaaasss? Richtig gehört BOUDOIR LOFT!!! 1 Loft, du und deine Freundinnen, sexy Unterwäsche, Make-up, Prosecco, leckeres Essen, gute Musik und obendrauf noch unvergessliche Bilder von dir. Ob du alleine kommst, als Gruppe, als Junggesellinnenabschied, als Geburtstagsevent oder als Geschenk für deinen Liebsten, wir wollen dir einen unvergesslichen Tag bescheren.

Durch meine Arbeit als Boudoir Fotografin sehe ich es als meine Mission an, Frauen darin zu bestärken mehr zu sich selbst zu finden, sich anzunehmen wie sie sind, sich als starke Frau zu feiern. Ich erlebe es jedes Mal nach meinen Boudoir Shootings, dass die Frauen sich auf einmal mit ganz anderen Augen sehen. Ganz zu schweigen von dem Selbstbewusstsein, dass sie haben, nachdem sie ihre Bilder das 1. Mal sehen. Ich bin der Meinung jede Frau hat dieses Gefühl verdient und jede Frau sollte sich wie eine Göttin fühlen. Viele von uns erkennen nicht, wie stark und selbs ...

Intimate Love Session in Stuttgart Saskia & Phil

While thinking about this session & about how I would like to blog about it, this quote by Courtney Walsh popped up into my mind. I was thinking this would fit perfect the mood of this intimate love session with Saskia & Phil. These two lovers literally blew my mind. I couldn't believe how intimate & emotional they have been from the very first click. I'm obsessed with them. These two got me infected with intimacy & true feelings. They set a really high emotional level for all the couples that will follow. It will be hard to beat that, but I swear I will try everything to bring out all the emotions & feelings you have in your soul for each other. This is my purpose. I want show your real feelings & create beauty out of your love for each other. "Dear Human: You've got it all wrong. You didn't come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you will return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Brok ...

Engagement Session at Federsee Vanessa & Marc

When Vanessa & Marc first asked me to photograph their wedding this year, I wouldn’t have dreamed  of this super stylish & cute engagement session at Federsee to come along with. As it isn’t typical for Germany to have engagement shootings before the wedding, I cried out loud when they asked me to go for it. Always preaching it to every couple of mine to do it because it’s so very important to connect with your photographer before the wedding & already have an idea how your couple shoot during the wedding will be like. Wedding day is so much more fun when you connected & both parties know what to expect from each other. It’s a free wedding day rehearsal. Also its a great excuse for the ladies to have hair & make-up done & show of their best pieces.  And you can eventually use the pictures for your stationary. Isn’t that great? So why not give it a go? With these 2, I got the whole package. They were stylish, cute as hell, bold & totally in love. When Vanessa told me, they' ...

After Wedding Session Isle of Skye Janina & Christian

What a fantastic end of the wedding season!!! Last year the season ended with an after wedding session on the one and only Isle of Skye in Scotland. Can somebody pinch me please! I mean can I get more lucky!? When Janina & Christian, whose wedding I photographed a few days before in Paderborn back in Germany,  asked us to join them on their honeymoon in Scotland & have an after wedding session on Skye, we jumped up & instantaneously said YES, what else, right? We stayed together at a super cute cottage on Argyll peninsula, sat at the fireplace with lots of beer, wine, delicious food & good conversation, went on trips to different whisky distilleries as Oban & Auchentoshen, drove through the Highlands & discovered the cutest little pub with some great homemade food. Perfect Honeymoon, as well for them as for us, too. But the highlight of the journey was still to come. Our trip to Skye, passing the James Bond famous Eilean Donan Castle & our after wedding session at the windy Q ...

Sunset Couple Session Oslo Operahouse Marita & Steffen

Being a single kid, raised by my single mom in a small family, I have lost that special feeling of Christmas long time ago. So this is why I like to pack my bags & escape this crazy & kind of superficial time of the year to explore new places, which is so much more fulfilling for my travel soul. This year, it took us to Norway. We've been to Norway before, since we are lucky to call some amazing humans up there our friends, we now and then get the chance to visit them in Stavanger. But we have never seen any other parts of Norway, beside Stavanger and Preikestolen. Which isn't a bad spot to start. But we wanted to see more of this special country so we decided to fly to Oslo, do some sightseeing & have an amazing shooting with two lovers at the famous Oslo Operahouse. Totally spoiled by the good weather, which isn't usual for a Norwegian winter, we had an amazing time with Marita & Steffen on the rooftop of this impressive building with a great view over the city skyline on one side & the ...

Best of 2016

2016 is officially over. New life chapter starts today facing my 35th birthday. Umm and yes I am that old. I know I still cant believe it myself but unfortunately it’s true. Can somebody pinch me, please! I am officially old! But who gives a damn about stupid numbers on a paper? I don’t! Today I choose to feel 27 (cause its my favorite age) & I choose to be happy. But lets sum up the last year. 2016 gave me some really good ups but also some really nasty downs. But all these downs thought me some really good lessons and brought me to that point, where I am now. A full-time photographer with huge plans for 2017. At 35 I am finally where I wanted to be. I made a huge dream come true. Slowly I’m realizing what an amzing step I made quitting my job & totally leaving my comfort zone. Seems like it’s time to lean back, be proud of myself & enjoy the ride. Cause it’s gonna be a good one. 2017 I am ready for ya! But for now, I just wanna say thank you to all the amazing humans, who welcome me to cap ...

Barn Wedding Paderborn Janina & Christian

Last & best wedding of the season. To sum it up: I cried, I laughed, I made new friends & I partied till 6 am. Therefore thats what I call a perfect wedding. I am so glad to call this cool couple from Hamburg my friends. We (my husband and I) met Janina & Christian 2 years ago during our vacation on Sansibar & became friends right away. They’ve been the first one’s to tell, that we got engaged one fine morning on Sansibar. While back in Germany we managed to stay in contact and visit each other from time to time, although Stuttgart and Hamburg are pretty far away from each other (600km). And when Christian proposed to Janina one year ago on Cayman Islands, it was pretty clear for me that I would like nothing better than to photograph their wedding day. I couldn’t wish for more, rather than this perfect day with them and their most darling friends & family in Padernborn, their hometown. It’s hard to put in words their love & how emotional their wedding day has been. But I would like to ...

Home Session Boudoir at Lake Konstanz Claudia

2016 turned out pretty good so far, concerning boudoir photography. This year I had the opportunity to shoot so many talented women, showing their vulnerable side, their most beautiful side, their inner & outer beauty. What I love most about being a boudoir photographer is showing strong women, who have fought some serious fights in their lives. They give me so much inspiration & teach me so much about life. Being part of their most deepest secrets & being able to tell their stories, is what I'm incredibly grateful for. Claudia has been one of these strong women, standing tall against all strokes she came along so far in life. I love showing this side. The strong side. Letting them feel like a queen, even if it's just for a day. She truly is my hero. Showing me that against all strokes, life must go on. Because life still can be damn good.   Hair & Make-up: Theodora Skalkou

Summer in the city & a fresh new couple hopelessly in love with each other. Can you wish for more? By just looking at the pictures I still can feel the electrifying connection between them. All these smitten looks at each other & the giggling. Sensual but still kind of shy. And some fine erotic tension. Young love at it's best. Felt kind of voyeuristic between them from time to time. Can we keep this feeling like forever please?

This time I felt in love over & over again with the north. Although I have lived for a while in Hamburg & have seen places up there (North Sea / Baltic Sea ), I have never been to the country side until this cute wedding of Gesa & Henner came along. Driving along endless alleys, green fields & that typical Friesen houses made my heart jump out of my chest. And then this wedding of Gesa & Henner. So many details. Beginning with the reception at a typical Friesen house & having a coffee bike in the garden fueling up all guest with delicious coffee all the way through the reception part. All this followed up by driving classy in a Rolls Royce to our shooting location, which how could it be otherwise, has led us into an alley. I can tell you about the barn, the beach chair at the barn’s super cute garden, the wonderful BBQ from Küchenperle Catering & the enchanting celebration but this would go beyond the scope.
