Contact Ralf Czogallik







Ralf Czogallik embraces his passion for wedding photography and combines it with a dedication to capturing the magical intimacy that is unique to each couple. In this way, he tells the story of their love and creates the setting for the exciting life that lies ahead for them. 
 
Based in the Netherlands, he deals with couples from all over the country and, in fact, the world. This gives him the opportunity to create spectacular images using scenic backdrops that are just about as unique as the couples themselves. 
 
His characteristic style infuses each of his pieces, despite their being tailored to the personalities and expectations of the individual couple. He sees the romance in every situation and communicates it in a very special way to create lasting memories and keepsakes. Ralf is about capturing the details, using these to communicate the passion and emotion of the couples, as well as of their families and friends. His photojournalistic style is effective in capturing the spontaneity of special instants - the proud look in the eyes of the father of the bride, the wrinkled nose of the flower girl, or the split-second glance shared by the new husband and wife. 
 
In addition to this style, Ralf Czogallik keeps up with modern photography trends and works hard to maintain an experimental approach. This ensures that his images are ahead of their time, giving the couple a stunning way to immortalize their memories in a timelessly beautiful style. 
 
One of Ralf Czogallik's secrets is to maintain a good sense of humour and a spirit of adventure in his method. Couples are soon relaxed and natural, which always translates well in images. This is coupled with expert editing techniques that bring out the best in the photograph and the couple, while maintaining the personal look and feel for which he has become so well known and respected. 
 
Ralf Czogallik has won awards for his excellent pieces. These include a Bridal Photo Award and the Best Wedding Photographer of the Netherlands in 2013. His impressive pieces have been featured in Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Hochzeitsguide and Be.Loved. He is proud to be affiliated with Fearless Photographers, WPJA and ISPWP. 
 
He speaks Dutch, German & English.

1 Real Recommendation

Shadi + Zac
I cannot recommend Ralf enough and words cannot describe the honour of having him as our wedding photographer. Before the wedding day the only thing that I could think of what makes a great photographer was the technical and artistic aspects of his/her photos. I almost looked at all the top photographers of the world's profile and sample works and compared them all to each other with precise attention to details as if I was a judge at one of the top photography competitions :-)) Actually, it roots back to my personal love for photography, and I know that I chose correctly. While reviewing Read More photos, his photos were outstanding both for professionalism and storytelling. I could feel the joy of each wedding through his colourful and vivid photos as if I was there and participated in the celebration. But on the wedding day I got a new insight into what a good wedding photographer means. Not only was he professional, but also having him around was like a breeze on the wedding day. He's like a bomb of energy and joy and excitement. The low battery mode is undefined in his setting ;-) Inviting our guests from the US and Iran and having our wedding planned in Dubai from the UK because of visa issues for Americans and the US travel ban against Iranians was a stressful process for us . But seeing Ralf early in the morning on the wedding day helped us to forget about all the stresses and focus on enjoying our day. He was constantly making us laugh and was there in every moment without us noticing that a photographer is there and we should pose in a specific way. He was like a great friend around us on the wedding day and the day after that we had an extra photo shoot. Looking at my photos I just remember joy and happiness, and I tell you what! Ralf was a big part of that! He was the saviour of our everlasting memories and the memories of him being around will stay with us for the rest of our life. Thank you Ralf!
