North Rhine-Westphalia and Hagen wedding photography by Nadine Lotze of Germany

Do not worry, I do not want to bore you with it, when exactly I developed my first movie back then in the darkroom or which camera and which lens I bought when. Because for you is only important: my heart beats for photography and I am very happy to work since 2011 as a freelance photographer. I care about the people and their stories and I want to capture your big emotional moments as well as the loving little things on the edge of the action, your "outer shell" as well as your character or every day, that for you at some point in retrospect but then to a wonderful moment becomes. Pure and undisguised, timelessly beautiful and aesthetically - that's the way the pictures should refresh your memory of the moment and put a smile on your face. [Hagen Wedding Photographer]

Matthias Tiemann, wedding photographer for NRW Ruhrgebiet

My name is Matthias and, as you may already know, I am a child of the Ruhr region. Born and raised in the pot, more precisely in Gelsenkirchen - Erle, today I am 39 years old, I am married and I can accompany the bride and groom from all over Germany for over 6 years. The fascination of wedding photography began with me, as perhaps with one or other colleagues, usually in the circle of friends. True to the motto - man, you make great pictures of couples, why can you certainly take our wedding pictures? Even though I was more than nervous and very aware of the task, I also wanted to photograph a wedding for the first time. Said, done! Since then, I can't ignore wedding photography! The true joy, happiness, and love of the bridal couple, the great mood between the guests and more, which makes this unique day special, keeps my own heart on each wedding day, which I witness repeatedly beating faster.

Vladimir Khaptinskiy is mostly at home while shooting wedding photos in Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia

Hi! My name is Vladimir, I'm a wedding photographer, 46 years old and I'm from Münster. My first encounter with photography was in 2002, when I first picked up a compact camera. Before that, I never thought that I would be a photographer. Of course, my first pictures were not perfect, luckily I had friends who supported me with simple words - "Keep it going, that works well". I met my teacher, who taught me to see the beauty of everyday life, in 2003. This was a professional photographer from Ryazan Eugeniy Kashirin. His teaching was never strict - "You have to do it that way" - no, he always said: I would do it ... Even though he had died of cancer to my great regret, his words impressed me deeply a: "Photography is the art of the moment". Like every amateur, I tried different kinds of photography, then I realized what my heart is - the people and their emotions - the indescribable, fast-moving things that can be captured with a camera. And where you can see the real and unencumbered, if not the most beautiful day of her life ... That's why I photograph weddings, I'm always on the hunt for unforgettable moments that they can enjoy after many years. And that's the main value of photography for me - that I can capture your feelings in my photos. At some point you will show these photos to your children. I want you to smile while watching, remember your emotions and return to a moment back in that time ... [North Rhine-Westphalia Wedding Photographer]

Wedding photography detail of bride and bridesmaids Preparing for the ceremony outside in the wind with their bouquets.
With the snap of a shutter, a camera lens captures a single moment in time; one that can never occur again in the exact same way. At any given wedding, there are an infinite number of these moments that pass us by. Some hold in place longer than others; some come and go in the blink of an eye. It is through such fleeting details that some wedding photojournalists earn their keep. With a professional eye honed through years of visual training and practice, they constantly scan the wedding scene...Read more

While you may have picked out a beautiful, rustic church, a serene outdoor setting, and a posh reception hall as ideal backdrops to your wedding photographs, the shots don't stop there. Remember: The wedding photojournalist's mission is to document the entire day. And one of the often overlooked, and maybe under-appreciated settings for photos during your wedding day occurs while the bride, groom and other members of the wedding party are in a car, limo, party bus or other forms of...Read more

Wedding Photograph taken as bridesmaids see bride in her dress for the first time and showing their reactions
To document the best moments of a wedding day, a photographer shouldn’t only focus on the bride and groom , or even on the main event. "Reaction shots," which record the reactions of guests observing the wedding’s activities as they occur, add an invaluable dimension to the visual record of the festivities. “I was constantly given a gentle reminder to look beyond the obvious action while covering sports assignments while on staff at The Hartford Courant newspaper,...Read more

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Christina & Thomas

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

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
