To mark the occasion of your marriage, you want photographs that are sophisticated, stylish, and significant. Believing every carefully-selected detail deserves preservation, it’s important that you receive lasting images—the kind infused with a value that only increases over time.

FROM THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS TO

CHICAGO'S CITY LIGHTS

and destinations across Europe

Born in Bavaria and dually based in Colorado and Chicago, I bring an eye for detail, a heart for romance, and a distinctly European touch to every wedding I photograph. Although I live in the US now, I travel frequently to document destination weddings in Italy, the South of France, and my native Germany. I find immense beauty in cultural diversity and feel most at home when I’m surrounded by ancient architecture—perhaps due to my own mixed heritage. As your photographer, I seek to create unposed yet pristine styled images that convey a sense of place, communicate your story, and capture your unique beauty.
