A Life in New York: Sophia & Rolf

A Life in New York: Sophia & Rolf

Engagement Session - Paarshooting
It was a beautiful sunny and warm spring day in New York City. Perfect to wander around and photograph a relaxed engagement session with Sophia & Rolf. As it was not my first trip to New York I know the city quite a bit and have some ideas where I would like to shoot. But when it comes to photograph a couple session I always first ask the couple what they like to do together and where they spend their time. Any hobbies, any favorite places to go? This gives me an idea of who they are and how I can photograph them so the pictures will really have a special meaning to them.

Wedding - Hochzeit
Usually my clients book me to cover their complete wedding day. As wedding ceremonies in Switzerland tend to be around noon, this means that I will start photographing early in the morning with the bride getting ready and leave after midnight when the party has started and the craziness has conquered the dance floor. So my shooting time can easily extend to around 16 to 18 hours, without any noteworthy break. This is not only exhausting for your body, but also for your mind as you have to stay concentrated and focused for so many hours.
