Good bye 2013 | Claudia and Ricky | Cape Town

It’s been quite here on our blog recently. Believe it or not, that’s a good sign actually. It means we are having time for each other instead of continuously working.

We don’t write “this end-of-year-reviews blog posts” instead we reflect for ourselves, what great time we had and how spoiled we are to live our dream and to do what we love. Here is to thank all of you who support our work: Family, friends and of course clients. The best on the planet actually! Continue Reading


Beach Engagement Shoot | Mallorca


Did we mention that we love our job? Well if not, YESSS we do! We love to travel and we love to capture the time of two people in love and if both comes together our feelings go crazy!

Before we are heading to our last wedding tomorrow we want to brighten your day with these two sweeties. Michaela and Jan decided to get married in Mallorca and the day before wedding we had the pleasure to take them to the beach and spend the evening time with them taking photos in perfect light.

Engagement Travel

Jaime and Chase | Get in Front of the Lens


We do it at least once a year to be in front of a lens of another photographer whom we admire and love to work with. For those of you coming regularly here to our blog might have seen this last years shoot in Tuscany with our dear friend Nadia Meli or this one with Mike and Rachel Larson.

The reasons for such an annual shoot are obvious. You get fantastic pictures and second, as a photographer, you gotta see how this person works :-) Continue Reading

Between forest and beach | Monterey | California


Marele and Luis are two expats from South Africa living in the Bay Area. During our trip through California last month we were lucky to do a couple of shoots with some very cool people.

We met them one day between Carmel (by the Sea) and Monterey to do a casual portrait session in this stunning scenery of this part of California. We talked about the fantastic light there already and even though we did not have much sun that day it was still different to what we have here in Europe. 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

The way they found us April last year is really funny and could be described like this in short:

There excists no ‘NO’ in Oamaru | Vintage Shoot


Hello Friends,

We have been discussing since yesterday whether to blog this shooting now or later due to the recent terrifying earthquake here in New Zealand. We have been checking with Megan and Jeremy if they are all good since both were supposed to be in Christchurch at this time. We are more than happy that Megan texted us that she is fine as well as Jeremy is back in Oamaru already.

We are very lucky not to be in that region right now. We sat on the centre place of Christchurch next to the cathedral a week ago on a beautiful sunny day. Unbelievable what just happened there yesterday. We are totally thankful that we again haven’t been on a wrong place at the wrong time and we wish that this is not going to change. Our thoughts are with the people in Christchurch. Although we can hardly do anything about the people there at the moment and our life will fortunately continue as well, and so does our work. That’s why we decided to share the story about our recent shooting in Oamaru with you out there and hope you like it as much as we do! Continue Reading
