do you like to break the rules & do things differently?
are you over saturated by old-school cheezy poses?

do you want your wedding photographer not only to be just another vendor but your new best friend giving you the best experience through the whole wedding process?
well if this is all you, congrats you found your happy place //
I love to break the rules, simply because I think there are no rules in how to do a wedding. I love to do things differently. there’s no need for cheesy stiff poses & doing the wedding your mama dreams of.
there is need for true love stories simply because every love has it’s own story & I love to tell every unique love story exactly like it is…REAL // RAW // CRAZY // WILD // FUN //
you do you while I’m there to capture it. I’m not just another vendor, I’m your new best friend giving you the most best experience while you are having the time of your life. I create the best work when there is trust & a good connection. I’m not there just for the result, I’m there for providing the best process from the beginning to the end. People who are not interested in getting to know me & are only looking for numbers, are not my people.
If you trust me & let me run free, I swear I’ll create the most rad sh*t for ya, scouts honor.
WHAT IS THAT PROCESS & EXPERIENCE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT?
It’s all about the connection baby. if we click on the first email, we meet in person over a really good cup of coffee & get to know each other. if we make a good fit, I’ll send you my contract. you sign the contract & make a 50% deposit & I’m all yours.
you now may think that’s it, you’ll see me next on your wedding day. NOPE M’AM. there’s more to it. there’s a welcome package includes where you get all the details that are important & that are not. when you book me, you get provided with a free engagement shooting, where you get to know how I work & you can practice what it’s like to be in front of the camera, if this is your first time.
I’ll be there if you need recommendations for really good & professional vendors. since I’m in the industry for 5 years now, I know a lot of good people out there, who can give you the best experience, just ask me. I love to help you with planing.
one month before your wedding day I’ll send you a questionnaire & we have a Skype call or meet in person to discuss all the things I should know are most important on your wedding day.
BIG DAY IS HERE. you enjoy the most relaxed & fun experience with me & at the end of the night we rock the dance floor & drink tequila shots. BEST FRIENDS FOREVER.
after 6-8 weeks you get your pictures & will love them. they come in a beautiful online gallery & you can share them with your crowd.
HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU COVER A WEDDING?
wedding coverage usually starts at 8 hours. that’s where I can tell a full story, the one thing I’m really into. they can go up to 16 hours if you want to. the most common booked coverages are from 8-12 hours.
HOW MANY PICTURES DO WE GET?
I provide you with a minimum of 500 pics. but it depends a lot on how many hours I shoot.
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK YOU?
1 – 1,5 years in advance, if it’s a wedding. especially when you plan to have your wedding on a very popular date like e.g. 18.8.18. for all the other work, a few months in advance should work.
DO YOU ALSO DO WINTER WEDDINGS?
YESSS YESSS! I love winter weddings. the light is much more magical than during summer time. for me winter weddings are true fairytales.
DO YOU ALSO DO SHORT WEDDINGS E.G. CIVIL WEDDINGS?
Yes Sir. they start at 2 hours.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
hell yeah! I love traveling. 95% of my weddings are travel weddings. nothing is more inspiring than traveling, getting to a new place & exploring the sh*t out of it. new places always make my heart sing. I had the opportunity to travel to some of the most gorgeous places for my couples in the last couple of years: SANTORINI, SCOTLAND, NORWAY, ITALY, IRELAND & ROMANIA just to name a few.
WHAT IS A GETTING READY & DO WE NEED IT?
if you want me to tell your full story, then you shouldn’t skip it. it’s such an intimate & special part of your day, which I think shouldn’t be missed. all the excitement & all the feelings when you see each other for the first time. you feel the excitement in the air, it’s magical & such a special moment especially when shared with your mom & should be captured & cherished forever.
WOULD YOU DESIGN A WEDDING ALBUM FOR US AFER THE WEDDING?
you bet I will, if you would like to have one. I work together with a pretty amazing album company, who does beautiful pieces of art, printing your pictures for eternity. I love it when my couple attach great importance to great work & good quality when it comes to printing out their wedding pictures.
ARE YOU ALSO DOING BRIDAL BOUDOIR SESSIONS? I WOULD LIKE TO GIFT HUBBY WITH SOME SEXYNESS!
yes m’am. be sure he’s gonna luuuuuveeeee you for that. I don’t like to brag but I do pretty rad boudoir sessions & I love to make all the LADIES feel like hot mamas during my sessions. because you LADY deserve to be the QUEEEN. not sure about it? just take a look at some of my boudoir sessions. don’t be shy & scared. trust me it’s gonna be fun & you’ll want to do it again & again.
WILL YOU KEEP OUR WEDDING PHOTOS PRIVATE?
well let me ask you something. what captured your attention first & made you think about booking me? I pretty much guess it was the picutures that you have seen on my website. saying this, I would like to explain to you how important showing all of my work is to me. this is how I book weddings. by showing other weddings & drawing other couples into the moments I capture, wanting them to have the same moments captured. if I would make all wedding pics private, I couldn’t show any pics for my future clients & I wouldn’t book any weddings. this is how I market myself. I can understand that some of you would like to keep their pics private due to special circumstances. that’s why I would like to inform you that I will charge 25% on top of the package you’ll book, to compensate my loss. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING
DO YOU DO AFTER WEDDING SESSIONS & WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THEM?
Yes, Yes & Yes. I’m totally into after wedding sessions & as well as elopements . please do yourself a favor & make your wedding day a relaxed one where you don’t have to run from a-z without being present in the moment. enjoy your family & friends & skip the portrait part for your after wedding session. they’re relaxed, they’re fun, you can do them where ever you want, you can jump into the sea, you can be wild, there are no rules. you can take your time & do what ever you want. if it’s an option for you, I would love to tell you more about it while we meet over coffee. if you’re not into an after wedding session, I would like you to consider 1 – 1,5 hours for your wedding portraits during sunset on your wedding day.
SHOULD WE HAVE AN UNPLUGGED WEDDING?
yes please. why otherwise are you paying a lot of money for a professional photographer??? I know these days nothing works without a smartphone & technology. our world is nothing but fast & everybody wants to have everything right away. wouldn’t it be a nice alternative to just ask your wedding guests to put down their phones, at least during the ceremony & enjoy every second of it? it’s been taken care of the photos, that’s why I’m there for. I’m there to make sure it is taken care of the best pictures of your wedding & they can be shared with your guests. if you want to have an unplugged wedding, just make sure to mention it in your invitations or put a sign at the entrance of your reception. it makes it a lot more easier for me, too, to not have to take pictures through all the smartphones, like I most of the time have to. it also disturbs my work & holds me back from taking the best pictures of you 2 & the ceremony.
DO YOU SHOOT ALONE OR DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER?
I’m alone & can cover up most of the weddings on my own, it they are not too big. I would recommend to book a second shooter, if your wedding is bigger than 100 persons. but don’t worry, you don’t have to look for a second shooter, that’s part of my job & will make sure to find the right person, who can help me capturing your wedding.
