Best of 2018

2018 has been a great year for me, but not where I expected! I love the unexpected.

First, I got a thing for black and white. In my classic sessions I always offer the black and white version of all photos chosen. So I am used to it, but this year I kind of prefered the black and white version of many images. Though it is not in my classic sessions I saw the difference, but in weddings. You’ll see what I mean in this post. I also I got much better at capturing spontaneous moments. Like much much better. I used to almost skip it, or took photos but never liked them. So thanks to my 24mm lens!
Second, I got several sessions form North America, in Munich. Several American couples have contacted me for different kinds of sessions and god I love it! You’ll see a bridal session, an engagement session and a honeymoon christmas market session, the dream!
Third, I got back into my first love: portrait. This year I decided to go back to taking photos for myself. This is something I hadn’t done in a long while, getting caught up in business. I feel I found my passion back this year with portraiture.
But mostly, and these photos will be presented at then end, I got into landscape and travel photography. I live near the mountains and they’ve inspired me so much this year. I went hiking too and discovered how fulfilling this activity is.

Overall I got better at seing the moment and composition. My goal for 2019 is to make my photos more emotional, adventurous and intimate. I also will keep working on composition and light of course, but this time I will try to take the time before I jump into a session to really look and SEE! This is actually one of my flaw and it makes me miss great opportunities. So here is the melting pot of all my favorite photos taken this year from weddings, families, couples, portraits and landscapes! I will post individual sessions soon!

NB: Some favorites couldn’t make the cut, since I sometimes don’t have the permission to share. If you did a session with me and would like to see your photos on the blog, send me a message!
