Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Cologne wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Cologne wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Cologne wedding?
A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose. We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Cologne wedding day by.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Cologne wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Cologne wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND Cologne WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Dear Martin You have enriched our wedding in so many ways. Back then, you introduced yourself to the words that on that day, you will not be "just" our wedding photographer, but also friend and guest at the same time. And you were so much more for us that day. Throughout the day, you helped us with advice, action and camera. Again and again we were asked by our guests how long we have known each other, and again and again we earned incredulous looks when we said we see each other the second time today. And so not only we, but also all our guests, both of you as a human being, as well as of your photographic skills were completely thrilled. You've captured this unforgettable day forever from start to finish in so many beautiful moments, and that's priceless. Christina and Thomas

Dear Martin, Now our wedding and baptism is exactly 3 weeks ago today and we did not want to miss the opportunity to thank you again for everything. It was an unforgettable and unique event for us, captured with many amazing and emotional pictures of you for us forever. We always like to look at the pictures and reminisce. Thank you also for your totally relaxed, calming and open nature and of course for your flexibility (with our little daughter Jana). We would love to book you anytime again! Best regards Petra & Markus with Jana
