About Alexander Ziegler:"There's always a story waiting to be told."
Dear wedding couple, it is always important to me that we both are on a wavelength. Because outstanding photography always requires sympathy, trust and good communication.
So let me introduce myself to you. Since I started studying international photojournalism natural moments and honest storytelling became the cornerstones of my work. My wedding photography is highly influenced by famous photojournalists like Jacob Aue Sobol, Anders Petersen, Darcy Padilla and Josef Koudelka. I am more a candid wedding photographer with a documentary approach. If children are playing in the dirt, I photograph them just like that. If people are crying at the ceremony, I capture all those tears of joy, if grandma is falling asleep I capture the moment. And even if the wedding cake falls down, I am ready do take the photo (not yet happened). Real moments, real emotions, life in all its bright colours and facets.
A journalistic wedding coverage is a very personal time document, an insight into one's own past, into the here and now, and also in the common future. This is how I define myself wedding photojournalism.
Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?
I am located in Berlin/Hannover (Germany) and Valencia (Spain). But I photograph weddings all over the world. Travel fees can be really low if you book early enough.
