Hi I am Sarah!
I am quite tall with a head full of curly ideas & I want to touch you with my stories. Your stories as I see them with my eyes & camera. I want to show you how incredibly beautiful you are & capture your most precious moments for eternity.
Based in Hamburg, DE + Sligo, IRL
Wedding photography from Hamburg
Yes I do – Emotional picture stories! And that’s exactly what I offer my bridal couples with authentic wedding photography from Hamburg. To capture the most beautiful day in your life as close & honest & vivid as possible. You get from me a touching picture story of your complete wedding, with which you can still remember in 100 years all the details & moments of your wonderful day. What romantic and unique weddings I was already allowed to accompany – from Asian weddings in Germany,
to German weddings in the Maldives. As a wedding photographer & travel lover, no place is too far for me. But of course most weddings take place in my favorite city, the beautiful Hamburg. This is where I live & work and sometimes can’t believe that I get to live out my wedding photography dream in Hamburg like this. But no matter where & how you want to celebrate. Whether loud or quiet. Big or small. You get from me exactly the photo story that suits you and reflects your story authentic & full of life!
WOW, the pictures really turned out soooo great...we've looked at them several times already & will definitely be looking at them 50 years from now! 1000 THANKS for this!!!
I'm freaking out!!! What awesome pictures Sarah, sooo incredibly beautiful!!! Thank you for giving us such wonderful memories in Mallorca from you. Our son will be amazed when he gets older, looks at the photos once & thinks to himself: \"Mom, Dad, you were once young & beautiful!\" D Thank you 1000 times for this ***
WOW!!! Turned out really beautiful Sarah!!! We've never had such great photos of us. And then the excitement with the marriage proposal...you just captured the moment incredibly great & Meltem really didn't suspect anything like that! The surprise was perfect & we are getting married YAY :) THANK YOU THANK YOU
Ahhhh I love our wedding photos to bits and couldn't imagine having better ones!!! Sarah did a brilliant job of playing with the light, capturing MANY great details - just awesome - and all the candid moments she captured!!!! Also all the getting ready pictures!!! ♥ All I can say is Sarah is a master of her craft. She was also super pleasant & engaging as a travel guest with in the Maldives, so we got the dream pictures we wanted. THANK YOU, for all those priceless moments & your lovely way ♥
I LOVE SLIDESHOWS - HAVE A LOOK
COVID - NOW WHAT?
First of all - don't panic! There are so many cool possibilities (of course following the safety requirements) to get married & to be accompanied photographically. Perhaps it is currently only the civil ceremony with the big celebration at a later date. Write me your plans & wishes and I'll tell you what is possible. Even if you book an appointment with me this year & Corona makes a dash through the bill. Then the date will be postponed. Already successfully done during 2020/21 :)
WHICH PHOTOGRAPHER FITS TO US?
First and foremost, of course, those that have pictures you like the most. Therefore, look at different photographers & their work to find out which style you like best. What fits best to you & your wedding. However, secondly, pay special attention to whether the photographer is likable to you as a person & whether you could confide in him/her. Because he/she will usually accompany you very closely throughout the whole day often in quite intimate situations. Should you not feel comfortable, you may not create the unforgettably beautiful photographs and memories you wish for.
WHY A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER & NOT UNCLE BOB?
1. Always ready: A professional photographer knows the course of your wedding and is prepared for all emergencies: Rain? No problem! Camera broken? Spare camera at the start! Sick? Replacement photographer from my photographer network! Memory card full? Never! Battery empty? As if!
2. Lighting conditions: Whether in church, the registry office or in blazing sun. The light is rarely perfect and changes constantly. Professional photographers, thanks to their experience, know how to adapt to situations at lightning speed so as not to miss any moments. They also have specially designed equipment.
3. Professionalism: does uncle Bob know how to photograph you from your most beautiful side & did he also think of the right focus? Oops, the photo got blurred & the kissing moment is already over. The photos of your wedding are eternal & should be fantastically beautiful. Even after 50 years you should still be able to enjoy them. Please do not leave this to chance!
4. The eye: It takes a lot of feeling for the perfect moment, capturing the impressive ambience, the small details & emotions of your wedding.
5. Quality: anyone can press the camera button. But when, how, where, why? You learn all this in training or courses of study for photography.
Through constant learning & long experience you get the balance between technique & art, between speed & emotionality and to get the best out of every situation.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Of course! I'm on the road all over Germany & other countries. My last weddings abroad were in Ireland, Mallorca, the Maldives & Italy.
But surely that will be expensive? Don't worry, to my normal hourly rate I only add travel expenses, which have become very affordable nowadays. In addition, I also do not insist on a 5-star hotel ;)
DO YOU ALSO CREATE PHOTO ALBUMS?
I'd love to! A noble photo book is of course the most beautiful end product that you can hold in your hands from your wedding photos. Feel free to contact me about it.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GET SICK?
In the unlikely event of this happening, I fortunately have a great photographer network. So, if there is ever a need, there are always great professional replacements, which I can highly recommend.
ARE ALL IMAGES PROCESSED & HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Yes all of them! From the approx. 4,000 pictures, I first select the approx. 500-700 most beautiful ones, then sort them into a meaningful picture story and then edit each one of them. The couple pictures get the most elaborate retouching, of course. Image enhancements once again bring out everything in the photos & are simply part of professional photography. Whether cropping adjustments, light, contrast or yet a spot. The photo retouching is done in a very elaborate & high-quality manner. On the whole, depending on the package I spend 2-4 complete days with the post-processing.
WHY IS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SO EXPENSIVE?
Why does the photographer cost multiples of the DJ? Because the DJ works only 1 day & the photographer up to 5 days. Why so long? 1/2 day preparation including getting to know each other etc., 1 day incl. overtime for the wedding reportage & 2-4 complete days for the elaborate & high-quality selection, sorting, image processing, preparation & delivery.
Not to forget the top end camera, editing and production equipment.
