Why I waited so long, I do not know. One thing is for sure. To wait five years to return to Siena was wayyyy to long. Finally we entered this town again. Ancient red brick walls, narrow streets, everybody on foot. As we walked the olive garden again. That one behind the universities’ canteen… one thing was for sure. It has been too long. And taking in the old view of the tuscan country side, it was almost to much to handle.

Thankfully I had very understandingĀ travel companions to wait till the ebb and flow of old and new emotions washed over me. Five years ago. On these grounds I had quietly dreamed for the first time to become a wedding photographer. And at night I had sat in front of the universities’ main building because the wifi was most reliable & watched hours and hours… maybe even weeks of photography workshops.

I organised weekly photo walks and was never uttering a word of my dreams. Just practising and soaking up every inch of light. And now? Now, I am earning my income, while living my dream. It is quite outrageous. The only thing missing is my very own weddings in Italia. šŸ˜‰

Dear Souls!

ItĀ“s Monyay again. I love this day!

Maybe even more so, since this week holds wonderful new adventures.

After lunch I will head to WĆ¼rzburg and join one of my total favourite passion projects. Which is Kirche im Club feat Love WĆ¼rzburg. This time we will have Jake Hamilton as a guest speaker & it is going to be awesome. If you are around the area, come and hang out!

On the happy travel note. I will be in Italia in the next months and if you are interested in a session in Tuscany, Umbria and the Venice area shoot me a line!! Lets make plans together!!

Soft grey skies.

One year into their love story. Two souls. And a day full of strolls around Paris.

It was meant as an almost joke. You know, as in, why donĀ“t we go to Paris for an after wedding shooting?!? While Anna & Chris had prepared for their wedding day one of the things they emphasised on, was time with their guests. Both had spent time abroad and their guests travelled from all over the globe to be at their wonderful wedding.
This was the time when the idea about the after wedding shooting was born. And what do you know? For their first anniversary celebration we all drove to Paris. Gosh, what a crazy dream turned reality!!

Recently I got the sweetest question about my travel photography. The sister of the groom contacted me & shared her travel plans to Lisbon. Oh what a happy place! Of course we had to share some good places to visit in Portugals jewel first. After some mails the question about my travel lens came up.

So here is the thing. If I get to take just one lens, it is always my 50m 1.4. It is my baby. Truly, I carry it everywhere. I use this lens as an all rounder. It does not always have the width which would be handy for landscape images. But my shoulder & back often cry for light luggage & thatsĀ  that. I use this lense for street shots, spontaneous portraits and even details shots when I take just this one lens. Really, all day.

Friends, the past week was full of goodness!!
We had a true summer week with days full of sunshine, espresso on the rooftop, temperature above 33 degrees and summer storms. Oh yes, and what was even better than the smell of fresh cut gras after the rain was the note that my After Weddign Shooting in Paris was published. It was the first time I have submitted work of mine to an American blog & was so super excited that they responded immediately that they would love to publish Anna & ChrisĀ“After Wedding Shooting. Oh I was dancing with high pitched swirls around the studio!

These two have my heart! They are incredible & as the idea formed that we would go to Paris for an after wedding shooting I was over the moon!!!
