Zug wedding photography by Andreas Feusi of Switzerland

Born in 1982 and raised in the Zurich area, I trained in office admin, later in IT support and was of course a passionate amateur photographer. My hobby has been my full-time job for some time. About five years ago I started my own company and opened my own studio in Cham. Since then I have moved into a larger studio in Baar. My passion for beautiful pictures, my creativity and love of working with people all contribute to my success in this profession. At the beginning of a contract, it is important for me to have personal contact with the client. So it is most vital to me to have discussed the expectations and wishes of my client before starting the shoot. As an avid Canon-photographer, naturally good equipment is a crucial part of my work. Is Canon or Nikon superior? In both of these top brands, their high-end products have very little to choose between them. Who is behind the camera is more important than discussing the technical details. The technology should just make it easier to capture an even better shot. I work as a full time wedding photographer for more than 10 years. In this time I shot more than 200 weddings. I love it :) I like to capture the wedding day in an artistic and authentic way.

Markdorf wedding and elopement photography by Michael Geyer of Baden-Wurttemberg Germany

For me, photography means discovering the world. I record what I encounter along the way with my camera: Things that are beautiful, important, humbling, and moving. Because what makes great photos so special is that the moments they immortalize come to life again when you look at them. As if you were there again. My camera has been my constant companion since 2008. I started out doing wedding photography in 2010 when some close friends asked me to document their wedding day. I was hooked – I wanted to document the most beautiful day of their lives in photos – but not with staged group photos! Instead, I followed the events almost unnoticed and captured all the emotional moments that are part of such events on film. It suited me and I wanted to perfect it. Since then I count myself among the best wedding photographers worldwide. I not only accompany weddings on the beautiful Bodensee—where I was born, raised, and still always feel at home –but also anywhere in the world upon request, even underwater! I also greatly enjoy traveling in my free time together with my fiancée. We prefer to pursue our shared passion: diving. Far away from mass tourism, we discover the most remote spots on the planet and enjoy the time together spent in the beautiful underwater world. Of course, my camera comes with me here as well! I’d like to give wedding couples—so you!—an unforgettable gift with my work behind the camera. The joy, the praise, and the recognition after I present the photos to the married couple is the true reward for all of my efforts as a wedding photographer. My goal is that my photos will put a smile on your face for the rest of your life! [Markdorf Wedding Photographer]

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more
WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO ELOPE?

They say 'all you need is love', but where exactly can you afford to trim the fat, so to speak? You want simplicity, but you also want to be properly married and, surely, to remember this occasion.

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more
Not everyone has a lagoon or glacier next door, but there's no rule saying you can't have a small wedding in the great outdoors.

Let your guests take in the view, especially if you've got a spectacular one. You...Read more
