A month in New Zealand | Our Wedding Film

Yesterday we had a very nice little family and friends BBQ at one of the most beautiful spots in Carinthia. It is overwhelming how much love we received for our wedding in New Zealand over the last couple of month and eloping was simply the best idea we have ever head. But truth to be told, we missed our close people and thus we wanted to party with them as well. Read more

A new Adventure has begun | Personal

When we both first met back in 2003 we knew this is something special with us. The circumstances were everything but no basis for a long time relationship. But we both felt, this was different. We started dating, we moved in together, we started a company and we quit our day jobs for the passion of our lives.

After eleven years, we thought it was something serious so we got married on a wonderful day in February this year. During our honeymoon in Hawaii we brought a long time idea to live and started a new, probably the most exciting and challenging, adventure in life. Read more

Hochzeitswahn Sei Inspiriert 2014 | Candi Discount 15

It’s always been one of our most favorite things in this industry to work with the best service suppliers and partners possible!

We were happy to be one of the first photographers working together with Patricia and we all grew together over the last years. We have met her several times and it is a huge pleasure to call her (and hubby Alex) our friends! Read more

Beautiful Outdoor Wedding | Christin and Matthias | Detmold | NRW

We love to travel, if this is not your first time here on our blog, you probably know that already right?

So it doesn’t mean it needs to be another country as Germany is big enough to call it “traveling” if you hit 1300km over the weekend, right?

So the lovely couple Christine and Matthias got married in Detmold (NRW) and we were honored to share the beautiful day with them and their amazing family and friends. Read more

Five reasons why we LOVE After Wedding Shoots and you should too

Through out the year we get a lot of inquires for so called After Wedding Shoots. Some people call it different like “Take two”, “Day After Shoot” or “Trash the Dress”. We personally do not like the term “Trash the Dress” as it does not relate to what we actually do during such a shoot and the Dress never really gets trashed anyway. Read more

Hawaiian Bridal Inspiration Shoot

We left wonderful New Zealand short after our wedding day for a honeymoon to Hawaii. Btw, thank you all so much for the lovely feedback on our blog post about New Zealand. In case you have not seen it check it out right here. Read more

We want a desert shoot

Back in October last year the couple inquired regarding their wedding in Mallorca 2015. Couple of days later the booking was sealed! It’s of course early but not untypical for the first bookings to be around 1,5 years in advanced. But it’s perfect to get excited for the season after the season! ;-) We love that light in Mallorca and we always wanted to be back soon! Read more

German Barn Wedding | Anne and Björn

Exactly today, three years ago, Anne emailed us fort he first time ever with some very personal words about our work and us. She explained her photography career and how she recently found the new love of her life. It all sounded a bit like a fairy-tale and we where really happy to be part of this right from the beginning.

Being a travel junkie herself she wanted some tips for a trip around the world she was planning together with her boyfriend Björn. We emailed back and forth and totally got along without having met each other in person. That changed in 2012 when they came to Munich and we had time to grab lunch together. We connected right from the first second and also had the pleasure to meet over the years again. Read more

A country to fall in love with | New Zealand

About three years ago, we have done a trip around the world and totally fell in love with this wonderful country. (Postings from the past, here and here) New Zealand reminds us a little bit of Austria with the difference that a deep blue ocean is attached to the endless of beauty in the nature.

We were very sure that we will be back one day and once we started planning our recent trip around the world, we knew we want at least another month of traveling in one of these cool camper vans. Read more

Feature Film | Ali and Zach Wedding | Tuscany | Italy

Those of you who follow us on a regular basis might still miss one of the big weddings from last year here on the blog. The reason is that it’s still in submission process and besides a handful of teasers, we aren’t allowed to publish more. We also launched a short teaser of the video we did for Ali and Zach during the five day event in Italy.

It has been our biggest wedding assignment till date and we cannot express how amazing these days were for us.

Casual Portrait Session | Rachel and Mike Larson

We first came across this US wedding photographer called Mike Larson back in 2007 due to his insanely cool camera toss. Remember that? He is about our age, such a cool guy and a super talented wedding photographer. Back then we only knew him through his blog and online videos.

Our first personal meetup was in 2009 when we both got a seat in his Calumet and Sunbounce Europe Workshop tour and this changed our photography life a lot. A couple of month later, we hired him for a casual portrait session and also met Rachel for the first time. (Here is his blog post about this shoot) Read more
