Winter After Wedding Shoot | Julie and Mathias | Kärnten

Couple of month after their wedding in Heidelberg (see their story right here), Julie and Mathias came all the way down to Faak am See (Austria) to visit us for a stunning after Wedding Shoot. Not only did we have autumn like weather but we also got lucky with amazing snow near our home to bring a third season to their wedding images.

Truth to be told: It’s been freaking cold for all of us :) but the LOVE between these two sweet hearts help a lot to survive the windy weather.

Big thanks to Julie and Mathias for travelling all the way down to Carinthia and for the fun shoot. Hope to cross path soon!

Denise and Kristof I urban shoot I Heidelberg

Hello guys,

last summer we had the pleasure to travel to Heidelberg and next to our super lovely wedding we had such a fun time with Denise and Kristof. We know them already since a while (Kristof is a photographer himself and is working in the team of Calvin Hollywood) and they always wanted to come to our home for a visit. But our paths were crossing earlier in their hometown and on this summer evening we had a little shoot right before an amazing Indian dinner. And what can we say? We just love the energy between Kristof and Denise, they are so beautiful, inside and outside …and it was so much fun hanging out with both of them. <3

Did we mention that we love our job ;)

Hope you like it as much as we do. Have a great day.

much LOVE…

Carmen and Ingo

PS: hope to meet soon again guys, either for a shoot or for Indian food :) Continue Reading

we hope you had a wonderful start into 2018 and you´re ready for a great new year. We are and we have plenty of freakin amazing shoots and weddings this year – it´s gonna be amazing!! 

Last year we had some fantastic weddings too and we are way behind of blogging, but lets start 2018 with the lovely wedding of our sweet fellow photographer Andrea and her fun husband Peter from last summer.

And it was even better than expected…what a cool bunch of people and such a breathtaking surrounding.

Love Shoot | Winter Wonderland | Kärnten

Hello lovely people!
Our summer wedding season is over and we have some beautiful weddings and amazing couples sitting on our hard drives and waiting for you. But first we would like to get you into winter mood since we got early snow couple of weeks back and love it really very much. Luckily we moved to this beautiful surrounding here in Carinthia (Kärnten) and sure we went up the mountain as the first snow flakes hit the ground.

Quirina and Marcus are such wonderful people living nearby and we are happy to get to know them. They are a couple since 8 years already and it was a pleasure for us to capture their love between each other. Not to mention that they are crazy good looking and very tough too (it was freezing cold up there!)
Thank you guys for your trust and for the super fun shoot with you on our favorite Mountain.

We went to Lago di Fusine, a little lake between the mountains in Italy (20 min from our home) because both of them like water and mountains…so this was a perfect secret spot.

Autumn Colors / One2one Mentoring Session

Last year we had a lot of one2ones and a lot of shoots we never showed here on our blog. The first year with a little baby isn´t always easy, so we lost a bit the “blogging” track. We are back, and ready to blog some “older” love stories too. Because LOVE never gets old! :)

This shoot was with the wonderful Jennifer März, a super sweet photog from Switzerland. She is a wonderful person and a very talented college! Go and check her out…you will love what you see! We had a wonderful time together with this beautiful couple. You can only imagine how we were freaking out behind our cameras! :) We just looooooved it. All of it.

Hope you like it too :)

Candi Wedding Workshop | Botanica Theme in Verona

It’s exactly two years ago that we have held the last live workshop. Since we have been teaching the same concept a couple of times we offered the workshop for digital purchase over the last months. We didn’t realize that a lot of people were interested into the live shoot and being part of a physical, group workshop.

So we thought about doing a one-time revival this autumn to gather those who are interested into „Learn How We Do It 2.0“ an updated version for 2015. To our surprise, the workshop was sold out within 24h and we added a second date (a week later), which was gone very quickly as well. We were speechless (rare moments) and very honored!

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. Continue Reading

Our brand new Image Film | By Cana Family

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

Heading Overseas | WPPI and California

Just in time when the sun is coming back here in our area we are heading out of town to enjoy even a little more sun. California (and Nevada) is calling.

Some of you might know that we went to world’s largest wedding and portrait photographer convention last year: WPPI – we have blogged about this here and HERE.

This part of the states isn’t totally new to us. We have spend almost three weeks during our trip around the world in 2011. In case you would like to see what we discovered back then, here are the postings about this. Oh and HERE. Continue Reading

Candi Wedding Workshop May 2013 in Tyrol

Hallo liebe Candi Wedding Workshop Interessierte!

Wir haben heute erfreuliche Nachrichten für euch. Wie bereits nach unserem letzten Workshop im November angekündigt gibt es auch für 2013 wieder ein paar wenige Termine für einen Hochzeitsworkshop bei uns. Auch haben wir kommuniziert, dass eine Email im Falle von Interesse eine Vorabinformation ermöglicht. Diese Option haben weit über 100 Fotografen in den letzten Wochen und Monaten in Anspruch genommen, sodass ein Workshop, und zwar der hier in München leider bereits ausverkauft ist bevor wir ihn öffentlich gemacht haben.

Alice in Wonderland | Sabrina and Hubert

We have had itchy feed since last weekend in order to show you this real fairytale themed wedding in Reith b. Kitzbühel. Almost every little girl is dreaming of a fairytale wedding when they are young but to grow up and still have this deep wish and idea in your mind might be very seldom. But Sabrina has always wished for such a wedding once she found her perfect man. Hubert, a cool French guy, is the chosen lucky “Mr. Right” and he perfectly fits into this dream. Don’t you think so too? Continue Reading

Don’t move | Vacation | Thailand

As mentioned in the previous post about the after wedding shoot in Thailand (in case you missed it here is the wonderful couple we photographed at the beach) we have had some “rest and relax” in the sun last month.

To sum this up with one word: AMAZING!

If you follow our blog you might have noticed, that if we are on our travels we always try to dive into the culture and are out in the field for great stories and portraits. That’s travelling. We totally distinguish between a vacation and travelling. Why? Because it simply is a total different approach for us. You might guess where we are heading with this. We have had a REAL vacation this time. One thing was on the 2-do-list: Don’t move too much ;-) Continue Reading

After Wedding Shoot | Natalie and Hayden | Thailand

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

Our annual photo shoot | In front of the lense | and more

We have had itchy feed the last couple of weeks in order to see what was coming out of our annual photo shoot we did in Tuscany. As many of you know we are getting photographed every year to see the flip side of the lens and have the feeling our clients have. We always wanted to get pictures from one of our dearest (photographer) friends: Nadia Meli! We love and admire her work and are totally thrilled that we all together could make this shoot happen during our stay in Italy. Continue Reading

After Wedding Shoot in Tuscany | Angelika and Artur

We are blown away by the huge response we got from the wedding pictures of Angelika and Artur. Almost 3500 page views hit the blog at the first day. Thank you all for your likes and comments here and on Facebook. This means so much for us! Thank you!

Not even twenty-four hours after the fantastic wedding of Angelika and Artur we met these guys again for another portrait session. Still psyched and kinda “high” from this stunning event and the wonderful light in that area we headed out to the coast do shoot at the beach. Continue Reading

Angelika and Artur | Dream Wedding in Tuscany

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.

Candi Wedding Workshop | Munich

We did it! After doing fusion workshops, portrait photography and editing workshops during the last years we decided to go for a business specific wedding workshop and unveil all we know about this industry and how we work. We put it under the umbrella “learn how we do it”. We almost could not believe the fact, that it was sold out within 15h after opening the registration form. We had no idea that so many people are interested into how we run our business and what we have to talk about. We were blown away by the trust and interest into the workshops and we certainly wanted to be an unforgettable experience for all attendees. Here is to first of all, thank all our attendees for being part of this workshop!

Happy Holi | Great Hospitality in India

First of all we would like to thank you all so much for the overwhelming response to Kismets and Nitins wedding. It’s been a page view record for us again and we loved all your comments here and on Facebook and Twitter. We are speechless! Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts!

Chances are that we are repeating ourselves here but we are in love with this country. Ever since we visited it first, back in 2005, there is a special chemistry between us and India. The people, the nature, the smells, the traffic just everything is so different from back home or any other places we have seen so far.

When we got hired for the wedding we did not waste a second to clear out the calendar for at least a month in order to spend some time here.
Well you might say, haven’t you just been on a 6 month vacation? Then let us tell you, that our trip around the world was not just a super long vacation and second, it’s almost a year that we came back from that trip.

So we decided before our busy summer is starting in April, we would like to recharge batteries and combine once again what we do love the most: photography and traveling.

Kismet and Nitin | Love and Colors | India

We have been looking forward to this wedding for a very long time now. An Indian wedding has always been on our wish list, and then, wedding in India could only top it! We told you the story behind the “acquisition” phase some time ago and we still cannot believe how things always come together. So here are pictures and the story of our first Indian wedding in India. Please, don’t be mad on us but putting 4 days into one blog posting is kinda difficult. So be aware to see lotsa pictures and many words. Here we go! Continue Reading

Back in Beautiful India | The Streets of Delhi

We know you guys are badly waiting for the Indian wedding to hit the blog and we promise it’s on the way. But meanwhile here our first impressions of this wonderful country.

After spending about 36 hours in Munich we left for Delhi on 27th Feb for a month in India. India, and Delhi especially, is one of the rare places we have been visiting more than once on one of our trips. It’s almost exactly three years that we were here last and a lot changed since than. But then again, nothing is different from 2009. We arrived 3am and headed to a nice hotel near the central train station. We just wanted to hit the pillow before doing anything else. Needed a lot of patience right outside the airport though. The (triple confirmed) driver was not here. Triple confirmed hotel wasn’t booked. But this is just how things work here and if you are in a rush,you better go back home.

Road Trip 2012 | Outlook and Goals | Favorite Indian Photos

As mentioned earlier we have not done a 2011 review or “best of 2011 picture” but that does not mean we have not had a freakin’ fantastic last year. It was incredible, maybe one of the best years we have ever had.

We tripped to wonderful countries, we met unbelievable nice and friendly people from all over the world. Our clients and their weddings were the best. We got featured online in many blogs and platforms as well as in (print) magazines. Attending Photoshop World in Orlando and meeting the Kelby Gang was another highlight. We did lots of one2one sessions and could help others to improve and develop their business and photography also during our portrait and editing workshops. Continue Reading

Something new about us | Self ‘n’ Portraits

Hi folks,

Are you enjoying that the summer finally arrived here in Europe? We extremely do and since we had some “time off” during the last month we used that chance to head out in order to do a little shooting with us both. We totally recommend for fellow photographers to at least once a year change sides and stop hiding behind the lens :-) We have done that with Mike Larson, Xenia Berg (she even got published with that shooting on the pretty blog) and we have quite a list of photographers we badly want to do a shooting with.

Hi Folks!

How is everybody doing? We are all excited to tell you about yesterdays first Munich Wedding Meetup. Right after we came back we started thinking about a little meeting with fellow photogs and some other people from the wedding industry around us. We checked some dates with the persons we really wanted to meet again after half a year and created a Facebook event (first time ever btw) but did not close it down rather we were promoting it quite big via our facebook profile and page. We thought we are going to have a max of 10 people coming but we were totally blown away as we checked the attendees a few days later! Yesterday we counted 26 of the most talented business people in the German wedding industry. Weddingplaner, Designer, Blogger and Weddingplatform Hosts and sure a lot of Photographers! Go Figure!

Grande Finale | Crossing to Florida | USA Part II

Hi folks!

We are totally psyched about the huge response on all our TATW postings and especially about the recent part one from USA west coast.

However, we thank everyone so much for stopping by and sure thanks for all the lovely words on Facebook as well as here in the comment section.

As said, we needed to split it up and here we continue on the road to San Francisco. Continue Reading

Not so different than home | New Zealand | Part I

Hello Friends!

Here we are, back home after this incredible trip. Still “high” from the experiences. Friends were welcoming us with open arms again.

But guess what. It’s not, we are finally home and the thing we were planning and looking forward to is over now, gone, done! What’s left? We need new targets to focus on now on the long term and we have some stunning ideas and hope to share this very soon with you all.
