My grandmother gave me the name of a flower and I could spend my whole life in old botanical gardens. I enjoy seeking adventures, curating our eclectic home and making memories. I grew up in a cozy town in Bavaria surrounded by enchanted forests, old world cities and the scent of freshly baked bread from the local bakery around the corner. I appreciate genuine craftsmanship and my mothers old film camera was my first love affair (sorry, Tim!). My academic background in design influences the way I see the world and I'm always aware of little details, movement and light. When I'm not creating treasured family heirlooms on weddings you will find me capturing editorials for brands, cultivating our vegetable garden or strolling through fleamarkets. I'm delighted to see my photographs published in the most influental magazines worldwide and was named as the Rising Star of wedding photography in the World by Rangefinder Magazine New York in 2018.
I love to discover lonesome places on earth and experiencing something new every day. Fresh air, the seasons, waves, the mountains.. you name it. I was already living in Canada and hosted open air music festivals to bring people together to celebrate life while feeling the grass under their feet. In this stage of life I never thought I would ever hold a camera in my hands to tell stories about peoples lives. Now I can''t imagine working on something more meaningful than a wedding celebration. It's all about the people that are close to your hearts in your life, all the little gestures and feelings of excitement and the scent of love in the air. Digging deep into your story to understand your path, heartbeat and what makes you who you really are fuels my inspiration.
I'm a mathematic mind and always fueled by curiosity. So I graduated in Engineering before I found my honest creative voice with a camera. My inspiration comes from music, human connections, mother nature and cinema. There was a certain moment I realized I wanted to preserve stories of peoples lives. It happened on a autumn day when my grandmother gave me an old casket full old photographs of my forefathers. The beauteous old world, the simple beauty of the natural moments and the honest joy mesmerized me. Although the people are long gone their stories are still alive in every frame. They aren't just a memory of their lives but also my identity and the explanation where I come from.
