The best time for this shoot is after the reception or after we arrived at the wedding location, when your friends and family are occupied with appetizers and drinks.

An average wedding reportage takes eight to twelve hours, additionally 35 hours of editing by the photographer.
How many photographers are attending our wedding?
I generally work by myself, but an assistant photographer, respectively a second professional photographer is possible for every wedding. I do recommend it for larger scale weddings. A second camera offers another perspective on your wedding as well a higher diversity of images and motives.

Photographical attendance at the registry office is only possible on weekdays and start from 2 hrs upwards. Wedding packages start 2190€.

You’ll receive all images in high resolutions of 4000px long side without watermarks, logo’s or similar. Prints of up to 1m width are no problem.
How much time should we allow for the photo shoots on our wedding day?
It completely depends on your personal event and planning. To discuss your ideas and expectations, a pre-wedding meeting is essential.
-Pre-wedding Preparations bride: 1- 1,5 hrs.
-Pre-wedding Preparations groom: 30min.
-Family and group photographs after the ceremony. 20Min.
-Couple shoot of the bridal couple: ca. 1hr.
These time frames are estimates according to my experiences and remain variable.
While working, do you consider our personal and individual wishes and ideas?
Of course, I do! If you have individual ideas for your photographs, I am very happy to realize all of your visions! It would be fantastic, if you could let me know about your personal expectations beforehand. You could also bring example pictures to our meeting, if you like. For me, it is most important to find out, what kind of photography you like and that we take images of your wedding, which are just as you wished them to be.
What about travel costs?
Travel in a radius of 50km around Cologne is included in every wedding package. For every additional kilometer I charge 0,40€. As I work all over the world, cost for overseas weddings are to e discussed personally.
How long does it take until we receive the images?
A couple of images I usually send in the next day. Generally I have finished the editing process around 2-4 weeks after your wedding. In high season this can unfortunately sometimes take up to four weeks. It always depends on the length of the coverage. If you need your photos earlier, please get let me know, we will find a way!
