Chances are you're over the awkward-looking photos and are looking for a photographer that gets YOU (and doesn't put you in uncomfortable poses.) I promise i'll never ask you to "turn your head slightly to the right and tuck your chin in" like the photographers did when we took yearbook photos. Instead, I'm hear to learn about the authentic, true, imperfectly perfect humans you are together and capturing your relationship on camera.
I'll be right there in your corner, making sure all the squinty-eyed giggles, happy tears, and your "holy guacamole, I'm marrying my best friend!!" feels are captured.
Whether you're eloping by the seaside or having a big wedding filled with all the people you love most, I'm here to encourage you to celebrate in a way that feels most genuine to you.
All shapes, sizes, colors, ages, and love is celebrated here.
Let's celebrate your love, your way ⚡
I want to hear how you two fell in love, your quirks, and what makes you two you! The better we know each other the more comfortable you two will be, and the better I can capture your authentic relationship on camera. Once we get to know each other, I can truly connect to your story and document your day that much better.
I want to give you photos where you not only say: YES, that's US but also, holy guacamole, do we really look that good?!?! My priority is always to make you feel as comfortable as possible, even if you have 0 experience in front of a camera (which by the way, most of the couples I work with have never had a couples session!) That being said, let's give you something real, where the photos not only look but feel like you.

where are you located?
I'm primarily based in Offenburg, Germany (a 30 minute drive from Strasbourg, France, so i'm there pretty often too) and spend my summers in Lombardy, Italy (Lake Como, Lake Maggiore, Milan!) I also go back to the USA every other year to visit the family, so send me a message and we can see if i'll already be in your neck of the woods.
do you travel?
Absolutely! I've traveled (mostly solo) to 20+ countries now, so it's safe to say I'm comfortable getting myself from point A to point B- even if that's the other side of the world! Do you have dreams of getting married in Sicily, the Sahara desert, or the dreamy coast of South Africa? *happy dance* Count me IN!

I GOT you! I think the most important is to dress in clothing / do things that make you feel like yourself. That includes clothing, which I'll go over that in the outfit guide. But beyond that, we can get fun photos of things you LOVE to do that make you feel totally in your element. Are you into longboarding? Is hiking your jam? Playing guitar? Are you most comfortable in the kitchen or brewing some coffee? Lets incorporate that into your session! I'm all about creating happy, safe, and silly environment where you feel comfortable- That way, we can create images that are authentic and special to you. At the shoot, you're not just being shoved in awkward old-school prom poses, we're actually gonna have some fun. :)
