As soon as I enter the venue it feels like someone presses the Play-button. I am always on the lookout for emotional moments or something funny coming up. Even though I'm absolutely not the type of photographer than runs around nervously I always have an eye on what's going on around me. I'm never acting like the "look into the camera" type of person and I love to talk to the wedding guests as a friend and not as someone who is just doing their job.  
For me this is what makes a photographer special. Many are experts in camera technology but only few are masters in seeing and anticipating memorable situations. My aim is to spot these situations whether it's 6 in the morning or 11 at night. No matter if we are on Mallorca or in a little Bavarian village I will never get tired of hearing love stories, seeing tears run over your cheeks and watching you dance to your favorite song.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Berlin so I can easily go anywhere you need me. Even though there are travel fees if I have to go larger distances I include the travel fees transparently in the full price to make it as easy as possible for you guys.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been in business as a main photographer since 2016 and since then I have been focussing on reportage and storytelling. I haven't counted the exact numbers of weddings I photographed (I'm not a number person) but my shutter never stands still even when I'm not on a wedding.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I once heard the saying that from the style of photography you can figure out what kind of person the photographer is. By saying "style" I'm not talking about the frequently used key words such as "natural" or "candid" as I figured out that the interpretation seems to be pretty broad here. I'm rather focussing on character traits that I recognize in my couples such as optimistic, open-minded, peace-loving, authentic and warm-hearted. This is what makes the connection between us and gives the pictures their unique and intimate atmosphere.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I offer packages starting from 8 hours up to any other time that you need me for. My prices are transparent and can be easily applied on every time span that you need me for.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I am not a studio person. I enjoy going out to soak up the atmosphere around me. When we meet for the first time I'd love to see you in person to get a feeling of you as a couple. But using Skype is fine for me as well as long as we get the chance to get to know each other and talk for a little bit.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

When I started my photography business in 2016 I began as what you'd call a self-taught photographer. My ambitions to get better were so high that I continuously invested in development and education. My biggest inspirations along the way were many of the best-known photographers for natural wedding reportages in Germany whose style inspired me to always focus on storytelling. My work end efforts have been rewarded by wedding blogs such as "The Little Wedding Corner" or "The True Bride".
