We have talked and blogged about this topic very often already (here, here, this one, and there, and this) and some of our readers might remember, that we try to get in front of a photographers lens at least once a year. The advantages are pretty easy to understand: Continue Reading
Some of you might remember that we made a shout out in April about hiring someone to work with us. First of all we want to thank every one of the 36 amazing people who have applied for this position. Really, we were blown away by the huge response and it was in deed a very difficult decision.
We went down from 36 to 5 for round two, a nice skype video chat. Two further ones made it to the final round at our home and work place. Really, it was hard for us to choose but here we are, totally happy that she found the way to us. Marina Scholze. (Marina S. Photography) Continue Reading
UPDATE: We have a winner —> HERE
Our very good friend and fellow photographer Steffen – Stilpirat – Böttcher has recently published a new book. After his best selling photography book Abenteuer Fotografie, which we strictly recommend reading, if you are only a bit interested into the topic, he now created a travel book from his recent trip to wonderful Vietnam.

Wir ahnten zwar, dass dieser Zeitpunkt kommen wird aber ehrlich gesagt waren wir nicht sicher wann. Heute ist es so weit: Wir suchen offiziell jemanden der mit uns Arbeiten will und uns in unserem Daily Business unterstützt. Und bevor hier Gratulationswünsche losgehen: NEIN! Carmen ist nicht schwanger ;-)
Wir haben einfach sehr viele Projekte und viel Arbeiten auf unserm Tisch liegen und das bevor die Hoch(zeits)saison richtig gestartet ist. Da wir an einer langfristigen Zusammenarbeit interessiert sind, und es sicher nicht einfach sein wird jemanden zu finden der perfekt zu uns passt, starten wir heute mit der Suche.
In case you come back here to the blog now and then you might have seen that we spent some time in the USA recently. The main reason was, that we attended the largest and coolest photography convection of the year in Las Vegas: The Wedding and Portrait Photographer International aka WPPI. Second was to do our new PROMO video with the one and only Cana Family. In case you missed this, here it is. And third, we needed to get away from the never ending winter :-) Continue Reading
How is your weekend going? We hope all is well in your world. Today we would like to notify you that Lightroom 5 Beta is out, how cool is that? We have been playing a little bit with it already and checked out the fantastic new features. If you are using any of the Lightroom versions you gotta check this FREE Beta out. And if not, this is a great way to get started, as it is free of charge! No matter whether PRO or hobbyist, Lightroom will change your editing workflow. We cannot wait for the final release and to bring it to our daily workflow.
We have been working to update the Candi Presets to Volume 1.1 in order to get them to work with the latest features with LR5 (and sure LR4 of course).
Quick NOTE: The Version 1.0 works just fine with LR4 and LR5 but they now use the powerful Process2012 engine. Continue Reading
Wohoo! Yesterday we have got an e-mail from Ben & Drew aka The Cana Family, with a link to Vimeo. All of a sudden Carmen was shaking a little and we both were super nervous and excited. It does not happen often that we have to give up control for something about us and we were afraid of how we would look and how we come across. Carmen was worring about her hair and make up after hiking for hours through the forest as well ;-)
Can you see the cow dung on our feet? Haha, that was really funny!
Yesterday we got that kind of feeling that our brides and grooms must have when we send them the links for photos or fusion. Normally we can only imagine how they must feel when they talk about their excitement. Continue Reading
we hope all of you had a superb Easter weekend (or even holidays) with your beloved ones. We had some great time with family and friends these days too.
Today we are thrilled to see our first cover shoot released by our dear friends over at the Austrian top wedding blog Hochzeitsguide. Lovely Susanne and her husband Thomas approached us back in December to help them realize an inspiration shoot in January. No need to tell you that we were honored to be part of this second edition of their E-Mag. In case you missed the first one you can find it right here. (also freaturing a shoot from us)
If you are getting married at the end of January at our latitudes all you are wanting from the weather god is snowing the week before and having sun during the wedding day. We have no idea how our couples are doing that but they must have a special deal as it is just perfect every time.
Rut and Holger, adventure and mountain loving guys could not ask for a better weather for their wedding at Starnbergersee. We personally are super happy for them, as they have put so much love and detail into the planning and making of their wonderful happening. More than one and a half year of doing handicrafts from invites to all the little things for the tables and nametags everything just fitted together. Rut even knitted her bolero herself! Continue Reading
Since we don’t want to post all the 15 video projects we have done we would like to point you to our vimeo.com account for a deeper look.
But for one of the most viewed weddings on the blog we also produced a fusion which we would like to show today. Yes, we are talking about the fabulous wedding of Angelika and Artur, aka “Die Hochzeitsfotografen”, from August 2012 in Tuscany. Continue Reading
As many of you know we as photographers have very early adopted the new video features of the digital still cameras back in 2009 when the 5d Mark II came out. Ever since we are doing little video projects. We have done image films, music videos, family fusion and of course we produce Candi Fusions for our wedding clients. Continue Reading
Today a super relaxed and don’t-move-only-recharge-batteries kind of vacation ends and we are on our way back to Munich. More about the fantastic time here in Thailand is coming in a separate posting. We need to show this shoot with the lovely Natalie and Hayden first.
The Australian/New Zealand couple living in Sydney has gotten our attention last week as the staff in our resort has mentioned a wedding party at the other end of the beach. We both were pretty excited to see the venue getting ready and how the stationary and reception is looking like. Frankly speaking, we were very surprised about the beautiful style the team has created here. (We learned later, that the bride has planed this very well in advanced and things she wanted were even shipped from the states ;-) Continue Reading
we are thrilled to announce a project we have been thinking about for a very long time and we are even more happy to do this with dear friends.
We’ve been very blessed and lucky to be doing as a profession what we love the most. We love life, people and we love to give. So we teamed up for something very dear to us:
We want to give back to people who give their lives to others. People who work in order to help others. People who have put their lives in service to others. Continue Reading
You know, now and then we jump out of our wedding box and share something totally different with you here on our blog. Today is such a day again and please take a moment to read about a boy whose talent and life is dedicated to moto cross sports.
Marcel Stauffer is Ingo’s nephew. He is eleven years old at the moment and he started riding moto cross bikes with the age of four (4!!!). Luckily we both were part of the birthday party in 2005 where he got his first bike and he first cruised around with a 50ccm KTM. What a moment!
End of September we had the honor to cover the wonderful wedding of Ursula and Stefan in Vienna. We have been there quite often this year. Besides the wedding we met former clients, new ones and maybe clients as well as we joined the first Vienna Wedding Meetup. Its been a really busy but super fun weekend.
Wir freuen uns heute einen weiteren Termin für einen Candi Wedding Workshop bekannt zu geben. Wenn sich nichts gravierendes ändert wird dies auch der letzten für das Jahr 2012 sein. Für die Details einfach auf das Bild klicken. Die Anmeldung startet am Montag 1.10. um 20 Uhr.
Wir freuen uns auf deine Teilnahme.
Liebe Grüße und bis bald
Carmen und Ingo
We are back home from Photokina 2012 and it has been an interesting and fun week for us. Sure the main reason was to see lotsa new products and stuff at world’s largest photography expo but we have been organizing the 1st German Wedding Meetup on Tuesday 18th September. Continue Reading
We are super excited about this wedding. Not only because it’s another fellow photographers wedding but also because it was a destination wedding in Italy. When Angelika and Artur first contacted us with the option that the wedding might be in Tuscany, we knew already that this will be outstanding. Both of them are very talented photographers them self with a well running business in Pforzheim. Earlier this year we had the honor to do an engagement session here in the Munich area. In case you missed this, here is the post about it.
We were honored to be part of our friends and fellow photographers wedding near Bayreuth. Marc and Caro are running a successful business together and we have met them several times before. They are totally sweet and we could not wait for their big day to come. It’s always a special task to photograph people who exactly know our side of the camera and also to make them be comfortable without thinking about it. Continue Reading
We were really looking forward to this wedding in Salzburg. Thomas was actually a fellow student from Ingo. So he was connected through Facebook for quite some time already and it was a super surprise to see his inquiry last year.
To also get to know his beautiful fiancée we met them last year for a nice dinner. Hui Lin has Vietnamese, Cambodian and Chinese roots and it’s so fun to hear her talking a dialect from Salzburg as she was born there. Continue Reading
