Warsaw Workshop with Anna Kuperberg


Last week-end I had the enormous joy to be part of a one-day workshop in Warsaw, held by Anna Kuperberg and organised by Dorota and Michal from White Smoke Studio. Anna is an award-winning wedding and portrait photographer based in California, and it was great to hear her share insights and inspiration from over 20 years of experience.

Anna also did a half-hour photoshoot with a really sweet couple, Ania and Maciek. Most of us also took a few pictures, and although I must say it´s a bit of a strange experience to shoot in a crowd of thirty people (hello Paparazzi, now I know how you must feel!), I tried to make the most of it and had fun with the "obstacles" (namely, lots of people in front of the lens and no way to interact with the couple).

This was my first ever Photography Workshop, and I must say I enjoyed it a lot. Dorota and Michal were the most wonderful hosts one could imagine, and it was great to meet so many photographers from all over Europe. Hope to see you all again soon! 

A Walk on Ice


We´re having a few ice-cold and sunny days here in Berlin, so I was reminded of a little walk Daniel and I went for, in December. It was one of these magic winter afternoons - freezing cold, at first hazy, and later, as the sun was setting, crisp and clear and beautifully sunny.

This is close to where my Mom lives in Austria, and I have lots and lots of childhood memories of this lake - swimming in it, biking along its shores, even sailing! Strangely, I cannot remember ever ice-skating here... but next time around, l´ll definitely bring my skates!

I´d be happy if you´d leave a comment!

Happy Valentine´s Day!

You may or may not like Valentine´s day... In my opinion, giving flowers can never be wrong. Especially if you try to get flowers that harm neither the workers nor the environment! You can find certified flower shops that sell Fair Trade Flowers here: ttp://www.fairflowers.de/florist

Happy Valentine´s Day!

Featured in Zoom Magazine!


Woo-hoo! Some of our pictured have been published in Zoom magazine! Pick up the latest copy of this filmmaker´s magazine to find  an article about director Hannes Hirschs film shoot for his movie "Dimi", accompanied by our photos.

The crew spent two weeks filming on the Baltic coast last august, and we joined them for two days to take pictures. As the budget for the production was quite low, there was no way to cordon off the areas for the shoot... so a lot of tourists and sunbathers enjoyed watching the process up close, often not an easy situation for the crew! 

Still everyone did a great job, while, as you´ll see, looking great... :) 

First the article, and then a couple of some of our own favourites. Hope you enjoy!

Anouk and Martin - Wedding in the Sextantio Albergo Diffuso

Anouk and Martin live in Amsterdam, but they decided to get married far away from home: in the enchanting village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The small and almost forgotten hilltown near L´Aquila rose to fame when Daniele Kihlgren, an Italian-Swedish entrepreneur, bought the abandoned houses, painstakingly restored them, and made them an “Albergo Diffuso” – literally translated, a “spread-out inn”. The hotel rooms are situated in the old houses with their medieval walls, while the reception is housed in what used to be a barn.  

With the help of Eva and Clara from Chicweddings, who organised the wedding, Anouk and Martin were able to host an unforgettable celebration for their families and closest friends. As the church they had designated for their vows, had been destabilized by a recent earthquake in the region, they opted to take their vows out-of-doors, in the tree-lined pathway leading up to the church. For the reception, the two and their guests enjoyed Italian appetizers in the last rays of sunlight, and for dinner, a several-course menu was served in another converted medieval townhouse. A truly relaxed and splendid day – thanks, Anouk and Martin, for having us! 

This wedding was featured in the Belgian wedding magazine Witweddings, as well as on Grey Likes Weddings and Elizabeth Anne Designs
