FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

 

How would you describe your style as a wedding photographer?

I want to tell your story in all its various facets as it happens, without intervention. It is about the great, most moving and joyful moments as well as the quieter ones and the small details that create the special atmosphere of your wedding. My goal is to capture them as they unfold without using a flash light and without much directions or posing. I offer you my personal attention and assistance throughout your wedding planning and wedding day. I am like a friend who is right in the middle of your event and in the same time I document what is naturally occurring on your day. Your special wishes and ideas are very important to me and I am happy to take the time to fulfill them.

 

Do we get to know you before our wedding?

Of course! It is crucial for me that you feel comfortable with me as your wedding photographer because I am with you during your most emotional moments, I share your joy and record one of the most important days in your live! To get good pictures you need to trust me. To find out if there is that symphathy between us, at least we need one meeting before your marriage.

How and when do we receive our photos?

Within three days after your wedding, you will receive a first selection of about 10 pictures. The post production of all your wedding photos typically takes up to 3 weeks. You will receive your edited, high resolution images on DVD (Basic Package) or on USB flash drive (all other packages) in a precious print box. In addition all your pictures are available for sharing, downloading and printing in a password protected online gallery for PC, tablet & smartphone.  Engagement-Fotoshootings, After-Wedding-Shootings, professional prints, wall pictures, photo albums and cards you can book any time.

 

What can we expect to pay for wedding photography coverage?

Prices depend on what you would like to be included. More about my pricing you may find here. I also make individual offers.

Do you shoot with a second shooter?

If this is your wish, yes. Two photographers can easily cover both the bride and the groom before the ceremony, making it possible to tell the full story of your day! I work together with some photographers. Please ask me to get more information about additional costs. 

 

What happens when it rains?

Don´t worry about that. Remember to bring a suitable umbrella and we can get very beautiful romantic or fun pictures. ​

 

What equipment do you use?​

I work with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and an extra camera. I use mainly prime lenses with high light transmission. Both a tripod and an external flash I use rarely.
 

FAMILY AND BABY PHOTOGRAPHY

How would you describe your style as a family photographer?

My goal is to touch your heart, to tell stories and show real emotions with atmospheric and authentic pictures. For that it is important that you are simply yourself, that you trust me and that you feel comfortable during the photo shooting which at best takes place in a familiar surrounding - a place that is connected to some personal experiences of you. One of them might be the photo shooting. It is important to me to record some of those precious moments in your life that tell us a bit about who you are and about the relations with the people you love - photos in which you can take pleasure a life long. If you are touched by my photographs and if you can imagine that I accompany you on a part of your journey, let me take emotional pictures to describe your love and tell about your happyness.

 

Do we get to know you before the shooting?

Of course! Before the photo shooting we can meet personally or talk about everything on the phone or skype.

Where does the photo shooting take place?

I do not work in a studio! I recommend to photo shoot in a surrounding that you feel familiar with like your home, in the garden or a place known to you outdoors. But I also know some nice places where we can go. A lot of fun is guaranteed if the photo shooing is held while you are for example in a pillow fight, playing with your kids, baking in the kitchen or simply go for a walk. You will always love to remember the good atmosphere of that day.

Do we need to prepare anything?

Not necessarily. You must feel comfortable! In your home I take photos close to the window to get the natural light.

 

How and when do we receive our photos?

Within one week after your shooting, you can choose your pictures from a password protected online gallery for PC, tablet & smartphone. Additional images to your booked packages can be ordered after the session for 15 € per photo. Let me know which ones you have selected. You will then receive your non-watermarked edited, high resolution images on DVD.

Are Beauty retouchings included in the price?

Yes. If requested I retouch temporary changes, e. g. rings under the eyes or light skin irritations.

Do you also take photos outside of Leipzig?

JYes – I love to travel! I will try to keep travel expenses low and make an individual offer for you. Maybe I combine your photo shoot with a short break or I´m around by chance.
