Authentic documentation style
Photography & Video
I am Björn, wedding and family photographer from Waghäusel.
But for wedding couples and families, I’m available all over Germany.
My goal is to make you happy with my photography.
If you’re looking for a photographer to take raw, emotional pictures of you and your loved ones, then you’re in the right place.
For me, life isn’t perfect and that’s great (it’d be boring otherwise).
You and your story are the focus.

FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY – Documentary PHOTOGRAPHY
FAMILY IS ADVENTURE...
jevery day anew. But I’m sure you know that.
Often enough, the beginning of the day is already a small adventure. Until everyone gets out of bed, breakfast is prepared for everyone, and everyone gets ready to start the day… Phew… For you as parents, this is already a big logistic and emotional challenge.
In the evening, the madness continues. The little one may not want to go to bed yet, and the big one wants you to read from a book. Then there are the small and big rituals which make you as a family. Once your kids are lying in bed, you’re looking forward to a little relaxation. That is authentic family life.
My approach with family photography is to accompany you on your adventure and capture images of small and big moments.
Often times, the small, everyday gestures and moments, which normally go unnoticed during our daily routines, have their special magic. They make up our own childhood memories, which we love to recall.
Everyday life is stressful every once in a while. As a father myself, I’m definitely aware of that. That’s why, as a photographer, I want to make sure that you and your family can relax during your shooting.
You don’t have to thoroughly clean your apartment or get your hair done before.
I will accompany you,
for an hour or a whole day
as the family you are.
(INTER-)ACTIONS & STORIES ...
are what makes family life, right?
A dad myself, I know this all too well.
The moment of happiness, when you return from work or the office and your kids run up to you filled with joy and they almost throw you on the floor. The joy over the Lego tower, which is almost 2 meters high, and which you constructed together (only to make it collapse later on). Or the moment your son’s face is full of anger because you just kicked him out while playing “Don’t get angry.”
All these are stories and moments, way more exciting than any photo shoot in a studio.
Why would you reduce yourselves to unnatural and staged images and overlook the big moments?
I let you guys be family and embrace the various interactions as well. That’s how I tell your story.
At a shorter photo shoot (1 or 1.5 hours), we create the fundamentals for interaction together.
At long photo shoots, I will keep in the background until the stories develop on their own.
Of course, you will also receive a few staged images, which can be gifted to the grandparents, but these will only make up a tiny and in my opinion unimportant amount of the shoot.
More important are the authentic, unstaged images on which you as a family will talk together, play, make fun, have arguments, make up and just be a family.
are the essence of great family photo for me.
Yet, it’s also important to me to not only show the supposedly “good emotions,” but all the facets of your family.
To be honest, the daily routine (of families) is not always bright and sunny. There are arguments, tears can flow or one can get angry. Why should this part of family life not be portrayed on the images?
At the end of the day, it’s the abundance of emotions that makes your family something unique.
I take a lot of pictures of a lot of moments, which portray your family the way it is.
Wonderful & special.
Including edges and imperfections.
Of course you can receive these moments also in a photo book. In my opinion, analog images are something permanent in our digital and fast-paced world. And for the kids it’s great to go through these images in the book together and look back to the small moments that make up your family.
I know a lot of female photographers who devote themselves to family photography, but there are not that many men who offer family portraits.
Personally, I believe that’s a pity because women’s and men’s perspectives and styles of photography often vary.
My photos are not better or worse than those of a female photographer, but simply different.
My wish is to see this dad-factor more often in family reportages.
