It´s time...for our Couple Shoot Giveaway 2013!

So it’s Valentine’s day. Some celebrate this day, happy about a pop of colour in this otherwise rather bleak season of waiting for the first signs of spring. Others say it’s a ruse by commerce to get you to spend ever more money. Our take on it is: celebrating love certainly isn’ t a bad idea, and February 14th may be just as good a day for that as any other! So bring on the pink confetti, the heart-shaped chocolates, the candle-light-dinner... and, of course, our by-now traditional VALENTINE’S DAY GIVEAWAY!

We´re giving away one free photo shoot with the two of us – Teresa and Daniel - to one lucky couple. You two could be engaged, married for 25 years, lovers since just a few days... doesn’t matter, as long as you´re in love (and over 18), you’re eligible!

We can do the photo session in Berlin or Vienna, so either you´re a resident of one of these two beautiful cities, or you’d have a really nice reason for a week-end trip!

Scroll down for the details on how to enter!



To enter, just leave a comment below this blog post, stating

Céline and Carsten - Engagement Shoot in Vienna

When I studied theatre at the University of Vienna, the faculty was housed in a part of the Hofburg, the imperial palace in Vienna (talk about a regal place of study!).

As I still lived with my Mom, who lives outside of Vienna, I would spend all the breaks between lectures and seminars strolling around in the first district, the city center that was once surrounded by the city wall (or sitting in its grandiose Cafés, when it was raining). Since then, a lot has changed in this part of town, but some of the hidden places – systems of courtyards, old archways, tucked-away sidestreets – still look as untouched as they looked then, sort of like they were forgotten by history.

When Céline contacted us a year ago, to ask us whether we would shoot her wedding, she and Carsten had just moved to Vienna. Céline is from the French-speaking part of Switzerland and Carsten is from Germany, so when it came to their engagement photos, we all knew that we wanted to take in some of that Vienna flair. At the same time, we didn´t want their engagement photos to look like a personalized version of touristy post-cards, so apart from going to see some landmarks (like the Belvedere, which you see in the last picture), we spent most of the time exploring some of these quiet sidestreets and old courtyards I used to roam some ten years ago.

Doesn´t the romantic backdrop suit them perfectly?

Carrie - Actors Portraits in Berlin

Here´s just one frame from our portrait session with actress Carrie Getman in Berlin yesterday. We had such a great time, and absolutely love how the photos turned out. Isn´t she breathtaking? Can´t wait to post more from this shoot!

Dominique and Maxime - Wedding in the Chateau de Bagnols, France

Dominique and Maxime got married in the very early spring, in the amazing medieval Chateau de Bagnols in the Beaujolais region of France. On the day of the wedding it was still very cold, and the day had both rain and brilliant sunshine… and, as a result, a beautiful rainbow at reception time.

The Beaujolais is known for its excellent wines, and the Chateau, surrounded by vineyards, made for a  truly picturesque background.  Dominique and Maxime exchanged their vows in the small town church a few minutes walk from the Chateau, and afterwards headed back with all their guests, umbrella in hand,  for a tea-and-sandwich reception.  In the evening, the two treated their guests to a candlelight dinner, accompanied by the arias of an Italian opera singer, and to end the day, everybody cut loose after dinner and danced until the wee hours.

We had first met Dominique and Maxime at Dominique´s elder brother´s wedding in Cefalù, Sicily, which we photographed an incredible five years back. And we can´t wait to meet the whole family again at her younger brother´s wedding in Monaco, a little later this year! Thank you all for entrusting us with documenting your special day – it is truly an honour and joy for us!

Simon Mraz - Portraits in Moscow


On our trip to Moscow last spring, we did a short portrait session with the director of the Austrian Cultural Forum, Simon Mraz. Simon moved to Moscow five years ago, and with his energy and undivided passion for contemporary art he has since become a true fixture in the Moscow arts world. His enthusiasm for the arts is contagious, and it was wonderful to follow him from gallery to museum to artist´s workhop for a week. A true mover and shaker… so we thought the “high voltage” sign was a rather fitting attribute for his portrait!
