2014 – One year turns everything upside down

Happy Tuesday everyone!

We hope you all have had a great weekend and enjoyed some snow or at least some Christmas markets to get the right mood for this time of the year.

Personally we aren’t there yet, which, for Austrians, has always something to do with the lack of snow. We both need snow to get the Christmas feelings before it’s Christmas. Read more

SHARING HOPE with ebola orphans

It’s this time of the year again, where everyone is heading to the mall and trying find gifts and presents for their beloved ones. The stores are filled up to the roof with goods and people. Most money is probably spend online anyway.

With all that rush, we would like to slow you down and point you to this project we are supporting.

Two years ago (2012) we spent over thousands of Euros in Christmas gifts and presents for our clients. Most of that money went to the postal service to ship the stuff out. Read more

This is where our inspiration comes from | Help Portrait 2014

Yesterday, 6th December 2014, we were lucky to do the international Help Portrait day again. If you are not familiar with this and want to know more, check out the official project website Help Portrait.

We get a lot of questions about where our inspiration comes from and our answer is the same since a couple of years. For us, inspiration is not coming from work or creativity of someone, it’s coming from inside. From the heart of a person or from generous things this person does. Read more

Italian Vineyard Wedding in Verona | Sylvia and Philipp

A couple of weeks ago we made a trip to Italy. At least once a year we try to visit this amazing country during summer. The last years it was luckily due to work and lovely clients.

After some time in Liguria and Siena we were heading to Verona for the weekend. We did some location scouting and our hearts started to pump faster every minute we got closer to sunset. “Please let the weather be same tomorrow” was the only thing we thought. The venue Villa Bertani Mosconi was just one of the most beautiful and oldest vineyards in that area. Very famous for the wine “Amarone della Valpolicella”. Read more

True Love | Maria and Michael

Early in 2013 the fellow wedding photographer Michael Palatini (former Hoberg) approached us for wedding photos. “Wedding photographers get married as well and are in need of nice photos too ;-)”, he said.

When it happens that talented people from our industry inquire for wedding photography it immediately causes to things: stress and excitement!

“Excitement” because it most of the time is a strong indicator for a beautiful wedding since they know what they want. And “stress” since, well yeah, they know what they want ;-)

So, better not fail this time! Read more

Big Thank You and Future Prospects 2015 | Personal

Yesterday we reached 15000 likes on Facebook. It’s a big number but it doesn’t really count. What matters is the quality of followers. The people behind this number who are really seeing our work and even commenting or liking one or the other photo/video. This is valid for all social media and sure our blog.

It is every single one of YOU, among another things, that keep us going and keep us doing what we love the most.

It is time for a big THANK YOU for all of you out there for your continuous support, love, inspiration and motivation. YOU who message, email, comment, like and even call us to let us know you are seeing our work and passion. We do not take these things for granted and it does not matter if its 10 “likes” or 300 for a photo. Every “like” and comment is unique and means a person appreciates your work. Read more
