Real love...

...seen the fine art way.

In school I was the kid that liked poetry. Whole worlds built with words only, beautiful sentiments packed into simple sentences and the irresistible appeal they create. I guess in a way that is still what I strive to do today, with my camera: I see your day as a magnificent poem that I try to put into images. Images that speak in the most splendid language.

To me life is better with my husband, my loved ones, a hearty meal followed by decadent dessert, cats, silly cartoons, slapstick – and life needs to be full of pictures and words. I have a master’s degree in French Literature and Aesthetics and I’ve worked as a journalist for a while. Besides that I made and sold pretzels in my dad’s bakery for a long time.

So, I’m a craftsman's daughter who became a humanities scholar who became an artist. And shooting fine art weddings with film is my chosen craft that I love dearly. My photographs are intimate, airy and artistic, a combination of soft, light painted imagery and the impact of documentary photography. Most of all I enjoy a good portrait. And real human connection – to me that is the perfect combination.

My philosophy

How I work...

...how you feel.

The moment I push the shutter button, is already the perfectly right moment. Before that, my job is to look for the best light, to tell you how and where to stand. To scout the perfect location. To make sure your hotel room is perfectly set up for the getting ready portraits. When your guests take cell phones pictures of it, I already created great film photography.

Do you know that tingling feeling…? Those butterflies in your stomach when you look at an image and you do not just like it, you adore it so much you practically want to live in it…? To me, that is how your wedding pictures, your family portraits, your boudoir images should feel like. They should not only be visually pleasing, they should feel like something. They should become one of your most cherished and valuable possessions.

Together we will achieve just that: I will be there for you with all my experience and knowledge for whichever question you may have – which hotel room will look best in pictures, what colour scheme your bridesmaids dresses could have, what time of day is best for whichever photo. Yet I will never deliver a cookie cutter product, every session is customised exactly to what you envision. I will not just show up and shoot – we will extensively talk about your plans, wishes, logistics to ensure you have the best time and the best result forever captured in an image. And in the end, I promise it will be so much fun! You will be able to let go, enjoy the session and just be the most stunning version of yourselves.

I will climb that mountain...

...with a very heavy camera...

...that is fifty years old. Just because I'm convinced it will take the most amazing photographs from 2.000 meters down.

I will get down on one knee...

...for fifteen minutes...

...in front of your dinner table at the reception. Just because I have a feeling that's where I have the most genuine and perfect view on your smiles during your parents' speeches.

I will get up...

...at the crack of dawn...

...after a sixteen hour wedding just to get that perfect landscape shot in the softest morning light.
