"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 trust and good communication. Thats what I learned working as a photojournalist over the years.
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 do not take wedding photos which remind me on lifestyle photography and fake glamor from the advertising. For this I am not the right photographer. 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 because thats how you wanna remember her. 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.
My image processing is therefore rather restrained, natural and timeless, because I think that an Instagram filter or blur on the skin does not make a photo better, takes it's own identity, rather distracts from its actual story and perhaps retroacting in 20 years considered looks totally embarrassing to you.
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.
I would be proud to tell your story!
