Authentic story telling instead of staged photos is the only way to really capture a wedding day to create lasting memories. This is your day and I am just documenting it without invading. The only moment I will take a little control is during portraits but even portraits should be fun and not stiff. But I think it is best to let my photos speak for themselves and let you judge. Please visit my website to learn more about me and my photography.

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

I am based between Peru and Germany but I shoot weddings all over the place

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

Apart from a few weddings in 2010 I started as a wedding photographer in 2012 and photographed over 300 weddings since then

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Most of the day my approach is purely photojournalistic trying to capture pure moments, emotions and the little things that make the day so special. Only during portrait session I get involved but even then I try to have everything as spontaneous as possible.

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

The typical package is Engagement Session + full day wedding coverage + edited high-res digital files + a few little things end up around $3000 give or take depending on the actual package.

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

We can meet over a coffee I am close or over videocall / skype.

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

My portfolio and my clients' testimonies are my credentials. I don't believe in degrees and affiliations for creative professionals as it does not really requiere much to get them. Even awards have a limited significance but that being said I am still proud of my award section on my website :-)

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Graduated Zoologist and snake charmer turned photographer. Co-organizer of the Beyond Conference. My 5 year old son and my 9 year old daughter are my motivation and inspiration. I love to travel for weddings and I love to come home to my family afterwards.
