HI, I'M JEN

a wedding photographer based out of Cologne, Germany and Sydney, Australia.

Before I started to photograph weddings in 2013 I used to work as a photographer’s assistant in advertising, fashion, food and for interior design editorials while studying photography at the Australian Centre of Photography in Sydney, Australia.

In the past three years I photographed over 101 weddings and capturing your emotions in a non-obtrusive way is the most important thing to me. Your tears, your laughter, your excitement and all those other special moments throughout your wedding day will be captured forever in beautiful images!

Some facts about me

I am an enthusiastic human being. Some people think I am nervous but in fact I am just full of energy and excited about life!

Besides photography books are my other passion. Especially scientific books about people and how the world works. Nerdy I know!

I enjoy singing but just for myself so please never ask me to sing for you. I can become very shy under such special circumstances.

Documentary photography, trees, birds, my bicycle, being outdoors, (exotic) food and a bottle of wine shared with my friends are my favourites.

GALLERIES

Just click on the category you're interested in and have a browse through my favourite engagement photos and best wedding pictures. Or simply lean back and watch my quirky stop motion films. Enjoy!

FAQ

Where are you based?

I am based out of Cologne, Germany and Sydney, Australia. For more detailed info please shoot me an email. In Sep 2017 I'll be in Bali, so please let me know if you are planning to have your wedding there!

Do you travel somewhere else?

I love to travel and I am a big fan of destination weddings. If you are planning to have your wedding in Italy, Spain, Iceland or even in Bali please let me know about your plans!

Do you have photographers you regularly work with? 

A few talented photographers work for me as second shooters but I also have some awesome lead photographers who can cover your wedding in case I shouldn’t be able to capture it. 

How does the booking process work?

Usually we catch up for a coffee to get to know each other a bit better. Or we could have a chat on Skype if that’s easier. As soon as you have decided that you would like to book me, I will send you a contract which needs to be signed from both of you. A 50% retainer fee of the total wedding package price is necessary to reserve your wedding date.

How many images do we receive?

Usually you receive up to 40 images per hour depending on the wedding. Sometimes there is lots of styling to photograph, sometimes there is lots of dancing, cake cutting and so on! It’s nice to have everything captured what’s important for you, so keep that in mind when planning your big day and how many hours you book your photographer for.

What is included in your wedding packages?

You receive all your professionally edited images in your personal online gallery. Furthermore you receive a beautiful USB with all high resolution images without watermarks. 

How many weddings do you photograph per year?

I photograph a limited amount of 20 full day weddings each year to make sure every couple receives an outstanding consistent quality in their images.

What are your prices?

My pricing for a full day wedding coverage starts from € 2.450 / AU$ 2.850. 

What kind of camera equipment do you use?

I use a Canon 5D Mark III, a Canon 6D, a Sigma 35mm Art and a Canon 135mm. I obviously have backup gear but I am trying to keep it to a minimum and prefer moving around than using zoom lenses.

Travel Fee

I don’t charge for travel within 50km from Cologne, Germany and within the greater Sydney area. If your wedding is really far away I might need accommodation especially if your wedding is starting early or ending late. 

We are excited to see our photos! What’s the delivery time after our wedding?

All of your photos will be ready for delivery within 4-6 weeks. Your stop motion video takes up to 8 weeks and will be delivered via Vimeo. 

 

Do we need to feed you?

Yes, please. Unfortunately I don’t have time to leave your wedding and grab something to eat somewhere else.

Do you have insurance?

Sure! I have a public liability insurance as well as my other photographers do have one!

In case you can’t shoot our wedding because of an emergency what happens?

My other photographers are usually available to cover me in case something happens. I also have a network of talented people with a similar style I could recommend to you.

Do you offer albums?

Yes! Albums come in different sizes and colours, your memories printed on a beautiful lightly textured fine art paper.

What about prints?

Yes, you can order high quality prints of your photos. There are two options: either printed on a beautiful fine art paper or on high quality lustre paper. I only use professional labs to get your photos printed to avoid colour variations.
