Hi, I'm John

I'm a father, husband and photographer. Four years ago, I married my beloved Karin. Together we have two wonderful sons, Leo eight and Tim three years old. To be invited to photograph a wedding is an honor. I know how important a wedding day is and how enjoyable it is to remember it through great pictures.

Photography has been my passion for over 20 years. I started with film and made black and white prints in the darkroom. I also have a Ph.D. with research in Expert performance. It has helped me to be thorough, a support for the wedding couples and to photograph the decisive moments that builds your wedding story.


I believe that...

  • A wedding is one of the most memorable days in life.

  • A wedding album or book is a family heirloom that will be cherished for generations to come.

  • Environmental friendly products are recommended, so support our future live on this planet.

  • Everyone can be coached to bring out their best.

  • Quality pays off in the long run.

  • Safety and security are important to all parties.

  • Proper preparation, training and equipment improves the results.

  • It's wonderful to capture the decisive moments that occur naturally.

  • Everyone has something unique that is worth showing off.

  • One should try to understand before trying to be understood.

  • Love needs nurtured to grow.

  • Marriage is worth celebrating!
