A close wedding on the island of Sylt

This is a short throwback to summer. Salty and warm air and my favorite island Sylt. A couple, the lighthouse keeper, his wife, the registrar, the wedding photographer. So less but still so much. A lot of sentiments, intensity, no distraction. Reduced to the most that matters: Love, Togetherness.
Have fun seeking in.

Wedding at the Heinepark Residence

The wedding kind of started very strangely as I was told by the groom two hours before the ceremony was supposed to start that the mother of the make up artist called saying she was sick. Being skipped out I had no other choice as researching for an alternative in my well working vendor network as quick as possible because I am only able to do make ups for carnival occasions -that’s it. But on a Saturday morning in summer it is almost impossible to find a good one as they are either booked or pregnant. Fortunately my lovely colleague Anna Brinkmann being in the industry and doing nothing else than realizing unique weddings, could help me out. After a few phone calls she had a solution and I was able to calm down the bride finally. With a perfect Make Up finish the wedding could start and the day ended up beautiful and smoothly without any unforeseen surprises.

Bildpoeten Meet and Greet Mallorca 2015

Right now posting you from Mallorca sitting in the morning sun of Can Torna and thinking of the last couple days. Three days of intense and creative exchange with other highly appreciated wedding photographers. This meeting takes place every year in November and is always getting better. Long late night talks, getting to know different perspectives and approaches, revising your own work and taking hints and feedback into consideration helps to identify your position and to improve yourself.
After having filmed most of the time in the last year, I started taking shots with the camera again.
Big thank you to my colleagues Luis, Daniela, Björn & Jessy, Till, Yannic & Susann, Kathrin & Simon, Hanna, Guido, Anne & Björn, Yvonne, Roland, Sergey, Manuel and of course Moni.

Wedding at the beach of Sylt

A beach wedding is a great option for wedding couples getting married on the northern islands of Germany (Nordseeinslen) such as Sylt, Langeoog, Amrum or Föhr. As wedding photographer I am always looking forward to a beach wedding as it is totally different to a wedding in a church or at the civil registry office. But convince yourself by looking at the following pictures.

As Wedding Photographer at Gut Bliestorf

Herrenhaus Gut Bliestorf next to Lübeck in Schleswig-Holstein is a real masterpiece. Located calmly in the verdancy and having a very engaged host. The fact that you book beautiful rooms was the perfect condition for the wedding couple to start their day relaxed. I was really looking forward to a vibrant wedding party with a lot of children and good vibes.

The wedding was organized by Anna Brinkmann sitting in the same office as I do.

When it comes to Anna’s work you can tell that the wedding will have a beautiful and perfectly fitting decoration with lovely details and a smoothly schedule.

So just to let you know in case you are about to get married and about to start the planning process go ahead and ask Anna so that you do not have to worry about anything and enjoy your special day.

The sweet component of the wedding was a vegan and very tasty wedding cake by Angelique (Tortenschön) creating another highlight of the wedding. But please let me also make notice of the other well cooperating vendors doing a great job an making the day as special as possible.

This and that….

Caused by increasing requests I was not able to upload posts to this blog frequently in the last couple months. Better said: I was busy and I did not have time to keep you posted. Nevertheless I will show you beautiful weddings, that I could collected on my hard disk in the last couple months, soon. In the meantime I would like to make you aware of two interviews that will make you know me and my work better. You gotta check this out.

On the one hand you will see a detailed interview of WhiteWall, that I can recommend anyways. I really love ordering stuff from them like large Pictures and canvas.

On the other hand you will see an interview divided into four parts with my highly appreciated colleague Patrick Rudolph (neun-zehn72.de). Patrick is a Photoblogger publishing lots of data and ideas regarding photography. His videos I have linked directly through his YouTube channel.
