last monday I started my week by entering a train and heading directly to Paris to meet a gorgeous couple for a love shoot.
This monday couldn’t have started in a better way and I am so thankful for my couples showing off their love to my work. Paris was in full bloom and we enjoyed some time around the Jardin du Palais Royal.
You should definitely think about a couple shoot during your vacation. Just do it when you feel most alive, when it is as easy as it gets to create some lasting memories.
The background of Paris just did its magic to these two on his birthday. What a day to celebrate their love to each other!
ever since I had this special feeling when taking pictures. This super excited, nervous kind of feeling when you hope everything turns out as you wish. Taking pictures always give me this tension. It is never just ordinary for me. Back in the days when I had to sent them to a lab to get them developed. I did not know what I was about to receive but I was full of hope. In hope for pictures that reflect my life and myself.
In the end I never regretted any pic I have ever taken.
Some are less important than others. Some don’t get me right away, but maybe years later. Pictures can remind you of what used to be. Of how it used to be. And they can make us remember how it really felt. There are very few memories who can bring back so many emotions like pictures can. Yet taking pictures is what we do all the time. But looking at them and treasuring the memories is the most precious thing to do. When you think of how long printed pictures will last. Whoever might see them years later.
When everything is gone, pictures remain.
And this is why pictures need to be taken.

To start with my writings about my vacation in Tulum, Mexico on the Yucatan peninsula I will show you my love shoot at sunrise with this american couple. Katie and Jazz were also staying at the fabulous Nest Hotel Tulum and we met for sunrise on their departure day. Believe me, their are few things that beat a sunrise at this beach. This golden light is a dream, not only for me as a photographer but for everyone who seeks love.
Intimate. Airy. Beloved.
This mallorcan love shoot makes me wanna go back to Mallorca again and again.

Whenever I am abroad I feel the urge to do a couple shoot with people I have never met. I met Gillian via Instagram and I loved her style and attitude. Our early morning sunrise shoot in the West Village was one of my favorite experience while being in the City. Thank you for this lovely morning and showing us around.
I cannot wait coming back soon!
Every now and then I long for the sea. And for shoots which are styled, but not less true because they come from the bottom of my heart. This wedding elopement shoot in St. Peter Ording was one of it recently. I thought of easiness. Simplicity. A bold and brave couple. And then I met Charlotte and Felix. The rest was a miraculous evening with the most stunning light I have seen in a while. And their happiness about their engagement.
This is what I am here for. These are the couples I feel connected to.
Melanie and Thomas were the first couple who booked me for their Zurich wedding in 2017. We met last winter and it clicked. A few weeks ago they had their engagement session.
Thomas brought the old family car of his grandfather – a Peugeot from 1963.
As if this wouldn’t be stunning enough, afterwards we drove to the rooftop apartment of their friends for sunset. And damn, this view over Zurich hit it.
Something good is coming up next year when these two will tie the knot. I am damn sure.
