Photographing demanding, multi-day events is my area of expertise. I excel on projects that are challenging. I take a limited number of events every year (limited to only 15) so I can give those events my whole focus.

Having studied in the US (I was a student at Harvard) and the UK (at Cambridge), I am accustomed to the sensitivities and sensibilities of an affluent, international and culturally-inclined clientele, particularly from the States (and not only), who happen to form about 90% of my clientele.

our expertise

When I hold a camera, it's as if I'm holding a mirror at just the right angle to show people how remarkable they truly are.

My entire career has been one in pursuit of meaning and purpose. After my research career at the Universities of Cambridge and Harvard, I had a high-flying career in international high-tech, and then led the digital department of a multimillion marketing firm. I also taught primary school children seeking asylum from the war in the middle East. 

My promise to you is to create humbly and generously; a gallery that reveals how remarkable of a couple you are, inside and out!

Today, after 4 careers, I am happy my life is dedicated to capturing life’s greatest events in the most meaningful manner, and to teaching remarkable photographers discover their vision and lead a life fuelled by a sense of purpose.

I consider each couple's love story to be a deserving and unique work of art. My photography is personal, fashion-forward, and fully purposeful, with a painterly old-world charm, and is the combination of candid moments and editorial compositions.

My work stems from an overwhelming desire to advocate for empathy, self-understanding, and the spreading of kindness. I hope that by showing all the goodness that exists in the world, I might help make the world a bit better, ever so slightly. I can imagine nothing more powerful than two humans in love!

LIFE

Andreas images are infused with life. They're beautiful, but what truly grabs our attention is how he treats his subjects with effortless elegance and dignity by letting them be their true selves.

We go behind the scenes to showcase the making of the magazine and to shine a spotlight on Konfekt’s chic understated glamour, convivial hospitality and sense of discovery.

Industry means depersonalising and replacing human agency with processes, policies, efficiency and replication. This is the definition of industry.  The wedding “industry” occasionally focuses more on the industry part, not the wedding part. I have been lucky this year to have worked only with creatives who focus on the wedding part. This is the people […]

Would you tip the same if the tip-jar was hidden from anyone’s view?
Maybe you would. But most people wouldn’t.

Because, like walkathons, bikeathons, or fun runs, tipping is not just about the money, but about how it makes us feel. It is about the story we tell ourselves about ourselves. And it all comes down to reinforcing a sense of belonging: do my actions resonate with the person I believe I am? And, where does this position me within society?

A few days ago my family participated in a charity walkathon. All we had to do was “buy” our ticket in the run, which came with a t-shirt, and walk 1 km. Why did we not just buy our ticket, skip the walk and save ourselves from the sweat? A. Because walkathons are fun, and B. because belonging in a group of people who share the same set of values is powerful. A short way of saying this is through the words of Seth Godin: “people like us, do things like this”. There is something powerful in being able to say “I belong among the charitable/ fair/ kind crowd”.

Sophisticated charities have become successful at the fundraising end because they have figured out how to become part of the culture. If culture is the stories we share, then connecting people who can say together “of course I support this, we all do!” is more powerful than simply giving money.

As for that tip jar? It is an act of generosity that goes both ways: it is generous in that it gives a hard-working person some well-deserved extra money to support their family, but it is also generous in that it gives us, the customer, a priceless story to tell ourselves (and to those who observe us) about ourselves.

Every time someone puts 1 dollar in that tip-jar, they are doing it because it gives them 2 dollars worth of value back in the currency of identity. When you start thinking in terms of internal narratives, then your product/ service/ not-for-profit can show up and offer people an opportunity to feel good about themselves and at the same time serve the world, and you begin to realise that generosity is not giving things for free or discounts. Generosity is offering something that’s worth much more than what you pay for. That Luis Vuitton bag? It might be 2000 dollars, but its value is priceless. Those matching walkathon t-shirts my kids and I wore? Priceless. That 10 million someone paid to have their name on the new hospital? Priceless. Generosity has never been about discounts and BOGOs!

The gist of the story? That there is power in giving people a place to belong. That when people reach in their wallets for any reason, they are not buying specs, but stories. These stories are not the one you (the marketer) say, but the ones they say to themselves about themselves. It’s these internal narratives that align their identity, orient their value systems, form tribes, and finally, shape the culture.

Education

The experience

Start with the sunset time, and schedule backwards in 2-hour slots. E.g. estimate that ceremony should typically be 2 hours before sunset, and Bridal Prep 2 hours behind the ceremony's beginning.

I truly care to create opportunities for rich experiences on the wedding day.

Wedding Planners

Multi-day weddings within Europe particularly are my expertise. I follow a multi-layered, multi-staged protocol with accountability points which enables me to provide service at the highest possible levels.

Gather the details

It's possible to capture a lot of important photos before the ceremony, if you opt to have a First Look. It's understandable if you'd prefer spend your cocktail hour with your guests than shooting portrait photographs. The First Look gives you the opportunity to cover the couple shoot before the ceremony, allowing you to enjoy the cocktail party with your guests.

Invitation suite, Dress, veil, Hairpieces, Rings (all three), Shoes, Boutonnieres, Jewelry, Perfume,  Borrowed & blue

It's a fast-paced world out there!

Yes, I am incredibly organized and meticulous about arranging every last detail, but this is only one part of the story. The other, is when circumstances force me to stray from my plans. I thrive in being able to improvise on a moment's notice and being able to coordinate quickly with my planner.

The day begins with the details. The details set the stage for the look of the whole wedding. I will be sending you plenty of information and ideas on what you need to have ready for me before I arrive.

Creating an experience for guests & families

We are aware of the obligations that come with being one of the most visible vendors on a wedding day (though we never seek the spotlight). I, and everyone on my team, take this responsibility very seriously. We work humbly, hard, respectfully, and always with a smile - even in the twilight of the afterparty. We are deeply attuned to the emotions that run high on a wedding day and consider empathy and communication our greatest talent. We memorise the names of all family members and address them all by their names.


Trust in your team

Last but not least, a great wedding planner can help you design a unique event that reflects your personality and offer a memorable experience for your guests. I collaborate closely with your planner to manage various details, including the schedule, so that on the day of the shoot I can focus entirely on capturing stunning photographs. If you need any vendor suggestions, I'd be happy to share some of my favorites with you.

I strongly advise you to work with a videgrapher who has experience working with a fine-art/ editorial photographer. The entire day will be streamlined, and the timeline will be considerably more efficient as a result. Instead of working in different time periods, the photographer and cinematographer should ideally work together. Please do not hesitate to ask for recommendations for fantastic cinematographers.

I travel the globe photographing life’s important events, weddings, and editorial shoots. I care deeply for each couple's love story as a worthy and unique piece of art. My photography is intimate and fashion-forward, with a painterly old-world charm, and infused with meaning and a sense of purpose.

I serve discerning clients from over 20 countries, and also teach remarkable photographers all over the world, aiming to inspire a new generation of artists to build thriving brands and use their Art as a platform for positive change.

My work stems from an overwhelming desire to advocate for empathy, empowerment, and the spreading of kindness. I hope that by showing all the goodness that exists in the world, I might help make the world a bit better, ever so slightly, because I can imagine nothing more powerful than two humans in love!
