the washes of waves...
...on the shores of time...
...the brightness of your love...
...sparkling lights and a tender summer breeze...
...like a dream of night with buzzing voices.
I am Katja.
Always happiest either taking analogue photographs of wonderful humans on their wedding day or eating good food. Oh and with a purring cat on my lap. I’m deeply in love with the beauty of humanity and to me weddings are one of the most iconic occasions of humans loving and celebrating.
The most essential part of my work is to make sure you are relaxed, joyful and just ridiculously happy on your wedding day. Let me take care of your relaxed, joyful and happy memories from that day.
And now, lets get you the most beautiful photographs of your wedding!
My Fine Work Of Art
I'm an old school romantic...
No mere snapshots. Handcrafted photographs.
… with the head of a scholar. Whenever I photograph, the two come together, cooperate and create something magic.
In the end, the two create minimalist images that show the essence of your day – like a painting. Images that make you look beautifully real.
Images that show your glow, happiness and joy in the best possible way – like you have never seen yourself before.
No mere snapshots. Handcrafted photographs that will stay with for the rest of your life.
Your wedding day on analogue film

C & R
I shoot real film.
I consider myself a craftswoman, not a technician. I have a vision in my head and in front of my eyes, I don’t need a screen to tell me how it looks. I want to connect with you and your beauty and not with myself and the image I just shot.
And I believe the way sunlight and chemistry marry each other in analogue photography cannot be imitated by a sensor. Do you feel like my images have a certain je-ne-sais-quoi and you just cannot put your finger on it? That is the magic of film.
