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.

BOUDOIR

Boudoir portraits are an eternal, classic gift you both will cherish. Ideally suited for a wedding, birthday, or anniversary surprise, my boudoir collections include elevated prints presented in a linen box. Select your favorite fine lingerie and leave the rest to me. You won’t believe how stunning you look.

My father was a photographer. Because of this, I spent my childhood in Germany studying light—the way it highlights white mountains, brightens deep green forests, and is absorbed by blue lakes. It’s been eight years since I followed in his footsteps to become a professional photographer, and my appreciation for light and nature has only continued to grow…as has my desire to share our world’s breathtaking beauty with others.
