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

Our Unconditional Love | India | Kerala

We just “landed in Vegas for the biggest wedding photography convention (WPPI) and ready for some great new inspirations and meeting old and new friends! But before that, we gotta get this blog post finally up in the air.

10th Ask us Anything | FREE PDF Download

Hi everyone!

We hope all is well in your world.  This is actually the first time here on our blog, that we talk about our Ask us Anything sessions, we have started in April 2013 on our Facebook page (here is the album on Facebook).

We kicked this off when Facebook introduced the feature to answer to comments on Facebook status. This feature makes it possible to answer directly to a question asked and brought us to the idea of a little Q&A with all our Facebook friends and followers. Thank you all so much for stopping by and showing interest into our work and us! You ROCK! Read more

Model Shoot in Cape Town

Actually we wanted to do more shoots like this but truth to be told, our minds and bodies needed the vacation in South Africa desperately. With all the traveling and seeing a bit of this amazing country (in case you would like to see some photos, it’s right HERE) there was not much more time than for one shoot. We love to step out of the wedding box now and then, as we did already once in India 2012 (see photos HERE) Read more

Here is to thank all of you who support our work: Family, friends and of course clients. The best on the planet actually! Read more

A Compagnon for every shoot | Leather Bags from Germany

Earlier this year we came across this startup company from Valentin and Vitali through our friend Steffen – Stilpirat – Böttcher called Compagnon Bags. We were hooked from the first moment and we contacted them right away.

We have been looking for nicer camera bags other than these big black bulky things screaming “look-i-have-10k-euros-photo-gear-in-here” for a very long time. Read more

Vanessa and Jan | Grande Autumn Finale

Our relation with the lovely Doreen Winking (Wedding Planer) is almost like in “Dirty Dancing” where “Johnny” enters the room and says: “… I always do the last dance of the season“. Well, almost. But the truth is, that the last three years we always had the pleasure to do our last wedding together with her.

So a few weeks ago it was about time for the “Grande Finale” for 2013. And it was an autumn dream. We first met Vanessa and Jan (and the two sweet kids) at our house for a little meeting. They are such a lovely family and we could not wait for their wedding to come. Read more

We recently flew to Spain to cover an intimate wedding in Mallorca, Llucmajor. Watch this space for that to come soon.
