Lyon in Winter, A bit of France - Personal

We were on the way back to Germany after the winter holiday in the south of Spain. On the highway, overcome by the prospect of entering into the cold-grey and into the week of work, decided on the shortest of notices to make a pit stop at Lyon. This then turned into two days of happy France bliss. Walks during the day time and incredible good food as soon as the cold drove us into one of the tiny gourmet places. 

ENjoy these lovely peeks into my two days in Lyon.

Wedding Alisa & Felix

A most gorgeous day many Saturdays past in the early summer. One of my first weddings to shoot in the very heart of Stuttgart. Once more surprised by the hidden beauty of the city as well as this beautiful couple.
Thank you for asking me along and entrusting me with the honour of documenting your day.

Monday post

Dear Reader,
finally a new Monday is here and I am most happy to let you know, my thesis is done. Handed in and all. So wonderful! Last week was filled with excitement, exhaustion, a good dose of sleep and then some jolly birthday celebrations. 
While I was still writing my thesis I had implemented some rules in order to avoid distractions... such as no blogging, no editing before 12pm, no creative magazines... You know to keep me focus solely on my Jane Austen research. I studied about eye-contact, power relations and psychology all topics which I love. Still my mind wandered off to blogging and pictures going silly with ideas, now that this past process is over I cannot quite seem to find the muse again. Haha. Maybe to much writing.

My past two months were filled to the brim with the novels Emma and Persuasion and just as those wonderful books deserved, I took them with me on my Christmas / New Years journey. Actually I carry Emma almost everywhere I go. It is my go-to novel for any circumstance, any time of night or day. Even if  Persuasion set partly at the sea side I staged some super nerdy pictures reading Emma on the beach. So here you go. :D 
As I said, I carry it all the places.

Time for being studious - Personal

This years post have come along at a rather slow pace. 
It will remain like this till the "handing in of my thesis" part is completed, as you have read in the previous post. Till then it really is all reading, collecting evidence and writing for me. Oh and a couple of client meetings by the end of this week. 

So here is just a little something from my stay in Valencia. Being studious. ;)

First Monday

Happy new beginning to you!

Not even twenty-four hours ago I returned home from my winter escape & when I look through the Blog I have the feeling it is becoming a reoccurring  theme. That around the colder months I hop in a car and leave. Leave towards the south where the light is filling me to the greatest delight. In a very lovely and southerny way I got to spent Christmas and New years in the warmest south of Spain. Comfortably tucked away in the historic city center of Valencia. This past summer I was working almost each weekend which was a gift greater than I had myself allowed to dream. Therefore the only a short trip I took was to Roma. Of course ;) And now the winter break called for a vacation with a good dose of rest & quietness. Those are the ups of a wedding photographer ;) And as I love the south I wanted to go and breath the air again. Every time I go I feel how much I missed it. The southern charm, the ocean´s blue, the people singing, the sun unstoppable beaming its brightest cold winter light.

Aleksi headshots

One thing I absolutely adore about being a student is that it is so easy to meet all kinds of new people. And internationals come with that. I do not know what I will do when this splendid time of my live comes to an end & I will have to socialise in a new manner.

This is how I came to meet Aleksi. The funny thing is that our studies are more distant than any studies could ever be. So here I am happy to introduce a Finnish space master on the Blog. It was my joy to take your application pictures.

Monday post

work it gorgeous.

During the last days I have spent more time at my desk again. When I write desk I really mean the wooden floor of my apartment. I am such a comfy sort always enjoying to sit on the floor. haha. I spent time reading, researching & writing. Not for my photography actually... but for my degree. Yes I am still in university. ,)
And sometimes when I am gloriously distracting myself from being diligent I think about the past year. I had the honour of photographing incredible couples. Of sharing a full day of splendid with them. Of being part. 
So here is to a new week of gratefulness. 
Of being full. 
Of grace. 
Of thanks. 

PS, also music-for-studying recommendations are always welcomed with listening ears.

Daniel headshots

In my time in Würzburg I have found a family among most loving friends. When I write that people make the place I mean exactly that. Throughout the last three years our Campus group has established a new kind of project. We started going out in clubs to create student services at a place familiar to fellow students. What has begun almost three years in a small underground music club has now grown to be know beyond the outskirts of our city... We are hosting the student service in one of the largest concert buildings downtown, with each celebration we welcome new friends from all of central and south Germany. 
During this wild and new journey as the project took off Daniel was one of our faithful visionaries and managers.

Preview of a new favourite day

Oh today was glorious gorgeousness all around. Early in the morning I got up, still full with turkey & took the highway to Stuttgart to meet with these two lovebirds. There will be more to come of all the beauty & fall-love! Brace yourselves! This wonderful lady? Yeah, she is my new roomy. Am I lucky or what? 

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Married Marta & Binh

As Marta contacted me I was so very glad my calendar held on open spot on this specific Saturday. You see, it was four days to their wedding, with their original photographer being taken ill I was able to have my first “fill-in” wedding.  The nervousness of not having met them in person was wiped away the very second we met and I was welcomed with warmth into their special day. Their ceremony was held in the midst of many friends and relations from all over Europe & Asia.
