Capturing people being themselves. Full of life.
This is kind of my approach as your photographer. Storytelling during the everyday life – at newbornphotoshootings, wedding reportages or couple shootings. From my eyes and your memory. Maybe I can tell your story soon too?
With a very natural and pure storytelling, and a casual and relaxed atmosphere – this is why I don’t work in a studio, but in your home, in the nature or elsewhere, where you feel comfortable and at ease. With daylight and without a “Please smile!” – laughing is just allowed for those, who want!
You can find a lot of my photoseries at the link above. As I’m still working on my translated photoblogs, they are still in german.
Now this is about me:
I am Anna, a 30-year-old photographer living in Vienna, Austria. The day my memory starts, I was holding a camera in my hands. At least I imagine that and it sounds poetic, doesn’t it? A little bit later, it was 2011, I finished studying photography at Die Graphische in Vienna and also the master’s certificate in photography. Then I decided to give my dream a go and got into photobusiness for myself.
People often ask me if I’m really a photographer or just for fun? Do I do it for a living or is it just a hobby? If I’m just the cousin of the bride – as I look so young? (I’m 29! Wrinkles gradually keep appearing, hello!)
So – hi, I’m Anna and I’m a self-employed photographer, as real as it can be! I’m doing this since five years with lovely – and I absolutely love my job! And: one of my mottos is not only valid in my privatelife, but also in my job: Dance like nobody is watching! ;)
This is where you can see me and my boyfriend Daniel standing side by side with our cameras in front of our faces. I love to capture the spirit I get from a country on my camera sensor and come back home with way too many pictures.
By the way, often we’re hitting weddings together as Daniel is my Second Shooter. We’re a pretty experienced and coordinated team and complete each other – with secret language via eye contact ;)
My sense for photography
Photography and me: A neverending lovestory. I love to capture pure, natural moments – people being themselves with the ones they love. Banning life onto a sensor or film, just like a memory-collector. This is why I always watch very precisely, not to say observe – and I let the people in front of my camera do whatever they want, be themselves and create new memories. My favourite photos result from natural moments, when the people are laughing about my bad jokes or don’t expect that it makes *click*.
I also often get bogged down in photos of other photographers – and find myself rummaging in Pinterest or Instagram for hours. Just the feeling a photo gives me, may be a huge inspiration for me.
Pricing & Information
Every wedding is so diverse – so also my offers vary. You celebrate in a small group of your beloved ones – or you have more than 200 guests? You want me to be with you the whole day – or just three, four hours?
I will tie up a package that fits perfectly to your wedding – with the basic package consisting of me, your photos, an usb-stick in a natural wooden box and a web-gallery for you and your guests. You can also order photobooks, minibooks or so-called live-guestbooks where my second shooter takes photos of your guests and prints them directly on-site – like a guestbook to go.
I will not only join you at your wedding in Austria, but also elsewhere as I love to travel (you already recognized it, right?) – just text me and we will figure out!
Ohh, and when they grow older, they don’t stop being cute! Fore sure. Taking photos of toddlers or older kids is something very exciting and thrilling me. I love to fool around with the kids, to chit chat and have a good time – so they feel relaxed and have fun while our photoshooting.
Whenever it’s possible I go outside with the families – with a picnic blanket, cuddly toys or finger paint, so it won’t get boring for the kids. And practically the photos become more natural and pure, just like a cute homestory.
Family shootings start at 400€ for a digital download, up to 460€ for the version with a photobox and prints.
Taking photos of people doesn’t only have to do with good occasions like a newborn baby or a wedding. It’s always superexciting to get photos of oneself – especially when they are more homestory-like and done in a natural way. “My” natural way is to watch people and capture their true moments and emotions.
Most of the time I work with people like “you and me”, that aren’t experienced in standing in front of a camera. This is why an easy, relaxed atmosphere is one of the most important things while shooting with me.
I offer natural portrait sessions for individuals and couples for 300€. I also do shootings with artists like actors, musicians or everyone who feels like an artist – for 400€.
maternity & newborn
40 weeks sound like a long time – but the time is passing by very fast. So I’d love to capture your big moments of life! You can choose between individual shootings (maternity or newborn) – or let me shoot both.
Your maternity shooting should take part 4 to 8 weeks before the estimated date of birth – or whenever you feel the best. We can go outside, into the woods or where you feel comfortable. The newborn photoshoot will take place in your cosy home, where we shoot a very natural, beautiful homestory with intimate photos. The best time is when your baby is up to 10 days or when it’s 3 months or older.
I offer single shootings starting 400€ or both maternity and newborn photoshootings starting 720€ depending on the package you choose.
