FAQ

A FEW WORDS ABOUT ME

Family Is My Sanctuary 

Yes, I love love Apple Struddle and will go the distance to get my hands on some or any great European pastry. In the 1980's, I was born in an East German suburb near Berlin. Both of my grandfathers inspired me to take pictures early on in life, and so I did. After I migrated to the US in my 20's, I met my wife and rest is a beautiful love story. Together we raise our "little angle" Noelle. I'm keen on reminding myself that each day is a gift and that I''m responsible on what to do with it. 

Frequently Ask Questions

WHY DO YOU SHOT TEN WEDDING ANNUALLY ONLY?

Back in 2013 I started shooting weddings full time. Over the course of 5 years I shot 100+ weddings. For the client, their wedding is one of the most significant days in their lives. As a photographer you meet your couples on the same emotional level each time in order to produce the best results. Twenty plus weddings each season took a toll on creative outlook and inspiration. During the process I burned out and started pursuing commercial photography instead. After a 3 year break from weddings I started taking on new clients but with an annual cap of ten weddings. 

WHAT CAMERA BRAND &  LENSES DO YOU USE?

We use professional grade cameras from Canon and Sony.  Our lenses are SIGMA ART and CANON L-SERIES. On certain occasions we bring vintage range finder lenses.

DO YOU CARRY LIABILITY INSURANCE?

Yes, we are fully insured and will leave a certificate with your coordinate that is listing your wedding venue. 

DO YOU CREATE A BACK UP OF OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHS?

Yes, we create two digital back ups of your RAW wedding photographs and keep them for 6 month. Your wedding gallery (which contains the high resolution version of your edited photographs) will be backed up and accessible to you for 1 year.

WHAT FORMAT ARE THE EDITED PHOTOGRAPHS DELIVERED?

DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE.
