I was 16, a boy from the german Odenwald, when I looked in the mirror and seriously asked myself what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and what I wanted to do with my life.
And even then it was clear: I wanted to photograph weddings. I want to capture emotions. I want to be a wedding photographer.
I would never have expected that a few weeks earlier. But then I was at a wedding with a camera. And I was immediately hooked. Back home after my first day accompanying a wedding, I looked in the mirror and it was completely clear to me: this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. Wedding photographer! That was in 2014.
And since then, I have lived and worked every day for my dream of being a wedding photographer. And not just any one, but a really good one. I've walked a hard and rocky road to achieve this, sacrificing the "normal" life of a teenager, spending days and nights at weddings, maturing, growing up and getting better and better. And even if it wasn't always easy to follow this path to becoming a wedding photographer: I don't regret a single second of it. Because, yes, I really have found my calling!
