DO YOU ALSO DELIVER COLOR IMAGES?
HOW MUCH CAN WE EXPECT TO PAY FOR A WEDDING COVERAGE?
I love the elegance and mystery of Black and White photography. And most of the images that I share are in Black and White. Black and White is timeless. In my opinion the closer an image represents reality, the less space it leaves for imagination. Colors can be distractive and compete with the subject, and I want my subject to be primary.
I don't like the trend of vintage filters, because like with every trend, one day would look probably not so actual anymore, so my colours are very neutral. That being said, I deliver around 50% of my images in colour, but this amount always depends on the preference of the client.
Prices depend on so many different factors. Days of celebration, number of guests,... I always meet the clients first, via zoom or in person if possible, and we talk about the wedding plans.
So after our get-together I set up a custom collection based on your wishes. All of this is of course non-blinding and you only decide afterwards and for yourselves if I am the right fit for you.
As a Freelancer in Germany, we pay more than 45% taxes from every invoice.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
DO WE HAVE TO POSE?
Definetly yes. I have been so lucky that couples took me to so many different places to document their wedding. Egypt, Canada, Switzerland, Greece, Italy Armenia, Mexico, Morocco... For 2023 are great destinations also planned. New York, French Riviera, Mexico, Switzerland, Vienna, Italy, Miami,..
I must also say that I love weddings in Berlin, my hometown.
As you have probably noticed in my portfolio I don't like posing my clients. I want them to look elegant, relax, themselves. I just give some directions to make you look gorgeous!
Relax and enjoy the day to the fullest, such a special occasion is not easy to happen again. We are all more beautiful when we laugh, when we cry, when we act like we are. Please ignore me and be natural, be YOU! I take care of the rest as far as photography.
HOW CAN WE BOOK YOU?
WE JUST NEED A FEW PICTURES FROM OUR WEDDING
A booking fee of 2500 EUR is required to secure your wedding day, deducted from your final balance. In the instance where I receive more inquiries for the same date, the date will be secured for the first booking fee received.
In addition to the fee, we also sign a contract.
My work is the result of spending some time with couples. It is not easy to create incredible emotional moments just by coming to your wedding and take a few pictures. Those moments only happen when, you as couple, your families and guests get the confidence of having a photographer there with you, that’s when real moments are going to happen.
CAN WE BOOK YOU FOR AN AFTER WEDDING SHOOTING
HOW LONG IN ADVANCE SHALL WE BOOK YOU?
Definetly yes. Sometimes I am already booked for the wedding day, and couples book me for an After Wedding Shooting. We do some special photos without the stress of the big day, choosing several locations. It is relaxed, we all have a good time, and the most important, we can create beautiful images.
The sooner the better, even more if your wedding takes places at weekend in Summer. If you are exigent with your wedding pictures, you should book your photographer as soon as possible, me or someone else.
CAN WE BOOK YOU JUST FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS?
DO YOU PUBLISH ALL YOUR WEDDINGS AND PICTURES?
As I mention earlier and as you have probably seen, my style is not coming and asking you to smile for the camera.
I want you to see your photos in the future and every time you see them, to feel again what you felt that day.
For couple/After wedding shoots you can book me for 3/4 hours. For weddings my minimum requirement are 5 hours. Please note that this would only be possible in the low-season or week-days.
No, I don´t. I am satisfied with my portfolio. I just publish something when I think it is something different to what I already have, or in a location where I would love to shoot again. Sometimes images are used for my promotion. Sometimes it is for a story on my homepage or a single image on Instagram.
That is crucial way of promoting the work of every photographer. If we cannot share our work, we don't exist and no one would book us. The way that anyone can find a suitable wedding photographer is because he/she is showing and promoting his/her work. I am in anyway very sensitive about what I share, and work with the most prestigious magazines in the industry (Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The Lane, AntiBride..) and has direct contact to the editors. These magazines are very sensitive and careful about what they share. And as you can see in my portfolio I do not share many images of a wedding, around 40/50 images, in case I decide to share something.
I understand and respect if your decision is to keep the pictures 100% private, in that case the price will increase by 30%.
DO YOU ALSO DO GROUP PICTURES?
I do cover group shots, I just don‘t share them in my portfolio. I recommend you to do some of them, at least to make someone of your family happy with these pictures. It is not necessary to take much time, we just need a few minutes. At the other hand, long group picutes sessions could break the rhythm of the day.
ARE ALL THE WEDDINGS YOU HAVE DONE ON YOUR WEBSITE?
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES, AND HOW?
No, I show you here only a small selection from several weddings, and only some pictures from them, so you can have a notion about my style of documenting weddings.
I don't share link with full galleries, for respect to my clients. But I am happy to go though the galleries together with you in our meeting.
Between 6-8 weeks after the wedding. Albums, if you book one, take a bit longer.
You will receive first a link with a Slideshow with the best moments that you can share with your family and friends. A few days later a gallery, with all the images, fully processed and in high resolution to make all the copies that you want and in your desired size.
