I'm twenty-something, currently living in Cologne, left my heart in London, my soul is fed by the ocean and delicious food.
I'm a nightingale (yes, I sing .. well not only at night), if I wasn't a photographer, I'd be a musician. I love black and white and I love blur.
Keep reading for my philosophy, scroll down for my favourites!
I believe in H O M E.
Being home, feeling home, having a home.
Look, here’s the deal. I once lost connection and sight for the people and places that I belonged to. I lost myself. And I think we’ve all been to a point in our lives where we lost a part of us and that’s okay.
Art helped me to find M E again. I love art in all of its beautiful ways. Art can be expressed in so many ways – don’t you think it’s phenomenal? I certainly do. There’s nothing more fascinating for me.
Art is M Y home. It makes me feel secure, at home, at ease. It lets me breathe, connect and understand. I know, you’re probably thinking „Wait, that’s not a place or a person?“ – I know. It’s my T H I N G. Home isn’t a place or a person. Home is a feeling. This feeling can be caused by other people, items, cities, countries, houses, smells, pictures, memories and things such as your hobbies or your job. Home is a feeling of comfort and safety.
But I don’t have one home – I have several.
Home, to me, is my grandma. Home is music, or art in general. London is my home, as well as England, but to be fair – Cologne grew on me a lot and I consider it home now as well (it’s been a long way, though!). The sound of the rushing waves of water are home to me and so is the wind that tangles up my hair whenever I’m at the shore.
Why I think that it’s so important for me to tell you this?
Because I want nothing less than for you to feel like home when it comes down to me and my work.
When you decide to get married...
you’ve found someone that is your home.
You’ve found someone who makes you feel comfortable, safe and loved. How beautiful is that?
On your wedding day you decide to promise each other to stay by one another in good and bad times.
You also have a lot to decide when it comes down to your wedding. I know, you want it to be beautiful. But for me, in the first place it should be about the two of YOU. Not anyone else. Just you. And just the way you are. No forced traditions, no forced invitations to people you don’t even want at your wedding. Maybe you even want to elope? Hella yeah for that!
I am a person who loves to remember, who loves to see things again. Because let’s face it – the cake and the delicious food will be eaten, your suit and your dress will be locked up in your closet, all the decoration will be cleaned up, the flowers will fade and dry.
The pictures and videos are (apart from your own memory) the things that remain.
If I wasn’t a photographer, I’d still see it this way, because it’s true. So think about it for a second, pictures have a very high value, because they remain. People come and go, they die and moments rarely ever repeat. That’s why pictures are such a wonderful treasure. Please listen to your heart and don’t run away from numbers (yeah, I know, I was afraid of numbers as well when I was in school … :D)
