The beauty of emotions finding their way into candid rebirth, immersing through my lenses like phoenixes with their shadowplay.

hello, wonderful soul


Looking back, my life has always been a perpetual dance that follows the footsteps of two passions, photography and travelling. 

Part of what has lured me to adore art and soulful expression is that I am originally from a medieval town called Nuremberg in Bavaria, Germany. It is the home of many famous artists like Albrecht Dürer, and it has been an influence to start paving the path of my journey. Now, I live in a small village in the north of Bavaria that is very close, enveloped by the majestic of Würzburg - famous for wine and stunningly beautiful baroque architecture by masters like Balthasar Neumann.
My entire existence I’ve been fascinated by beauty. I truly and wholeheartedly surrender to it. Bewitching landscapes, the poetry of people’s uniqueness, the melancholic allure of darkness... The beauty of emotions finding their way into candid rebirth, immersing through my lenses like phoenixes with their shadowplay. That is why I express my portrayal through Fine Art.

explore my FINE ART

I have a strong focus on emotions, beauty and details. These are either the emotions between you, as couple but also between your guests, friends and family. 
I am a quiet photographer, overlooking scenery and mainly in the background. My equipment is suitable for low light so, that I usually don´t need flashlight during the ceremony. My cameras can also capture your precious moments in total silence, which most priests, or ceremony speakers appreciate a lot and you won´t get disturbed by any noise or flashlight. During your couples session we carefully decide what you want to do and achieve beforehand. This is my favorite time of the day. We can get creative and you, two can focus on yourself, your love and time together... 
There my artistic mind get´s on fire and I will create extraordinary fine art photographs  for you. I won´t push you into poses that you would never do... You can totally stay yourself and the best pictures are even made during movement and moments I capture in between. I will assist you all the time and create the right atmosphere for your unique and artistic wedding photographs that you want to hang on your walls. 

I use two professional full frame cameras. Both have two memory card slots, where I immediately safe your pictures on simultaneously. So in the moment I take one picture it´s already saved on to separate cards as a back up. My cameras can also work in total silence so, that the click of the shutter doesn´t disturb anyone during your ceremony or private moments. I also work with very light sensitive lenses. This is important for  low light situations. For example during your ceremony it is usually not necessary for me to use flash light. 

That depends on the length of your wedding coverage. Usually you will get around 50 pictures per hour of booking. You will all get them digital, in high resolution for print and low resolution for web and social media. Every picture is carefully edited by myself, personally  and hand selected.

Sure, I have some photographers whom I´ve been working together with in the past. And it is a great opportunity to have two different angles if you decide to book a second photographer. And the variety of the pictures and also the possibility to be more creative are even better.

That depends on the season. Usually your pictures are ready within four to six weeks after your wedding.
Your wedding album is ready for proof shortly afterwards.
The production of your handmade album is in Europe and takes around four weeks to craft individually for you.

Absolutely! Although I´m based in Germany, I do photograph weddings all over the world. Like for example Mexico, or Portugal in the past.
As my heart beats for our nature I do compensate the CO2 of all my travels through atmosfair.

Absolutely. You will get the license to print all your pictures on your choice. Just take care of the printing business and maybe get some proofs beforehand. It´s important that the printer does not change the colors of your pictures or apply contrast or anything else. Your pictures are ready to print, when you get them from me. I can also assist you with that. If you don´t want to think about different prints or techniques you can always order your prints through me. I´m working together with professional labs that I fully trust and I can make sure you will get the best quality for your final printed photographs so, that you can enjoy your Fine Art wedding pictures more than a lifetime. They are even from museum quality standards .

Yes, absolutely. I love albums! My heart always jumps when I see the final results... When you can feel the pages and the surface of the album. In my opinion special photographs  are not made for a computer or a hard drive... And we do not even know how technology will change in the future - or do you even remember floppy discs? Photographs  are made to feel... to be printed on special paper... framed on a wall or in a unique wedding album. I offer specifically selected fine art albums which I carefully curate for you. Because that is how you will be watching your wedding photographs  for the upcoming years and your album can be a precious heirloom to  pass on to future generations... It will last forever...
