A Love Story in Rimetea, Romania Karina & Denis

Oh Romania, you beautiful wild wild wild country. Oh what a wild & beautiful trip this has been, I will never forget. Though I’ve been born in Romania & lived there for 12 years & also got to see some of it’s beautiful places, I have never seen it through a camera lens as a photographer. Oh boy Romania has so many things to see & explore. I’ve seen Romania this time through a whole new perspective. I am so thankful that my photographer girls who opened their hearts for a whole new experience & decided to do this road trip through amazing Romania with me. Though it has been only one week, we have seen so much & explored so many beautiful places, some even seemed to be out of this world. Romania left us all speechless & surprised us with so many different experiences. I would have stayed another 4 weeks to soak it all in. Inspired & pumped by all these breathtaking places we decided to have a little couple shooting in the most beautiful little village in Romania at the feet of the Carpathian Mountains, ...

Black Forest Winter Engagement Session Anh Mai & Rafael

a winter engagement session in the snowy black forest. can it get more dreamy & romantic? no it can’t. I was hoping for snow, when Rafael first wrote to me that his finance Anh Mai, who is living in Vietnam,  is going to visit him over Christmas & they wanna have their engagement pics taken in the mountains. so I did my homework & scouted a place in the black forest, where I was pretty sure, there’s gonna be for sure some snow. black forest didn’t disappoint. man we had a lot of snow in Kaltenbronn. I couldn’t believe it. poor Anh Mai, who just arrived from hot Vietnam, couldn’t believe it either & was definitely not prepared for the cold black forest. but these 2 warriors proved how brave they are & hiked with me through half a meter snow just to get to our spot. although wet & worn from the hike through the black forest, Anh Mai & Rafael only had eyes for each other after not seing each other in months because of their long distance relationship between Germany &am ...

Santorini Elopement Stefanie & Rico

  How lucky am I? Can you think of a better job than photographing beautiful elopements & weddings in the most beautiful places in the world? No? Me neither. I'm thankful for such great couples, like Stefanie & Rico, who take me to such amazing places around the world to document & celebrate their love. Couldn't wish for a better job! Stefanie & Rico, from Chur in Switzerland,  first planned on getting married at Lake Como, but soon after a round-the-world trip the couple fell head over heels in love with this lovely little Greek island  & switched to the idea of eloping on Santorini. They only took 24 of their closest friends & family with them. The bride Stefanie organized everything from Switzerland together with Ever After Days wedding planer Stefania from Santorini. The Elopement took place at the amazing Dana Villas Hotel , which is very much specialized on elopements & weddings.  The ceremony & dinner took place on their beautiful terrace with the typical & ...

Love Session on Howth, Ireland Tássia & Rick

when it comes to traveling, I’m more of a traveling to colder places person like Ireland e.g., than the person that likes to lay at the hot beach for hours. thats just not me, although it can be nice from time to time, especially if its connected with an ice cold beer. so this year we finally decided to do some small vacation in Ireland and since my cousin is living in Dublin why not give it a go. and oh my we haven’t been disappointed by Ireland at all. such a breathtaking country, full of marvelous places & the nicest people I ever met. let’s not forget to mention the pubs everywhere & the best Guiness ever. so we landed in Dublin, picked up my cousin, drove to Dingle Peninsula, stayed there 2 days & spent a fantastic time at Inch Beach. oh those beaches…I haven’t seen such beautiful beaches anywhere else. they make you want to stay there forever, watching the waves hitting the rocks & dreaming about all the beautiful places this country offers you. so Ireland got me right from the ...

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 Rot am See

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. Du sollt dich wie eine Göttin fühlen für einen Tag. 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 ...

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
