OUR HISTORY

02

    Hans got started in 2003, working in a paid second shooter position.  He photographed dozens of weddings for another company before taking on his own personal work.   In 2010, we went into business together!  Since weddings often don't go as planned, we feel experience is one of the biggest assets we bring to the wedding day.  We feel being a husband and wife team is also a huge advantage since we are able to read each other well, and work together in a special way. 
     
    We have a love for candid imagery that shows the real, true moments of your big day.  These images exist at each and every wedding.  We are also prepared for timeless portraits of your family, bridal party, and just the two of you.  With a combined 19 years experience, we are prepared to document your day rain or shine. 

OUR PAST CLIENTS HAVE THE SWEETEST THINGS TO SAY

  Hans and Nicole were our photographers for our wedding in 2015 and they were absolutely amazing!  I really can't say enough good things about the level of quality, professionalism, responsiveness, and everything else in general.  They are a husband/wife duo and are two of the nicest people my husband and I have ever met.

   

   Wow, what can we say?  Hans and Nicole were our photographers for our wedding at the USNA IN 2015 and they were absolutely amazing!  I really can't say enough good things about the level of quality, professionalism, responsiveness, and everything else in general.  They are a husband/wife duo and are two of the nicest people my husband and I have ever met.  
   
     They were extremely easy to work with and make you feel very comfortable, which was important for us since it's already a stressful day. They were more than just our photographers though -- both Hans and Nicole helped keep us on track all day and were beyond helpful. It was freezing cold and snowy for our wedding. Nicole helped carry my dress and helped me in and out of the car as we went to different locations. Hans carried my jacket on several occasions (and maybe even my shoes :) and made sure we had everything we needed at every point during the day.
    The level of quality of the photos we've seen from the wedding (and our engagement shoot) are absolutely stunning. They have such a talent to capture shots that a less experienced photographer may not see. They are true experts in the field of photography and the level of quality you will receive is unmatched!

   They are the sweetest couple and go above and beyond to make their couples not only feel like they are their number one priority, but they actually celebrate with you too! They capture such special moments and have unique visions and ideas to make your pictures perfect! It has been 6 months since my wedding and I still look at my photos all of the time!

    Hans & Nicole are absolutely amazing & one of a kind. When we met with them, my husband and I both knew immediately we wanted to work with them.  We felt comfortable and in good hands.  They are the sweetest couple and go above and beyond to make their couples not only feel like they are their number one priority, but they actually celebrate with you too!

    They capture such special moments and have unique visions and ideas to make your pictures perfect! I am beyond happy with my engagement and wedding photos.  It has been 6 months since my wedding and I still look at my photos all of the time.  We felt like we knew Hans & Nicole for forever while working with them. We had so much fun. I truly recommend their photography services. They do a beautiful job to capture the most important day of your life!

  I cannot put into words how amazing Hans & Nicole are.  I began planning my husband and I's wedding about a year and a half ago because he was preparing for a deployment. Hans and Nicole fielded dozens of questions I had, and were so helpful with all aspects of the wedding planning (not just the photography)!

     I cannot put into words how amazing Hans & Nicole are.  From the planning process to the time spent during our appointments, the quick and most helpful assistance and the quality of their talent and work, this duo is outstanding.  I began planning my husband and I's wedding about a year and a half ago because he was preparing for a deployment.  Hans and Nicole fielded dozens of questions I had, were so helpful with all aspects of the wedding planning (not just the photography) and it was all organized through emails and phone calls which was so helpful with my crazy schedule.

    We met at our engagement session and it was almost like we had known them forever, we fell right into place, they made us feel very comfortable and it ended up being so much fun.  The photos came out amazing and our wedding albums a year later did not disappoint either.  Family and friends have been raving about the photos since the wedding and I find myself looking through them probably once a day and it's been 3 weeks!  There are some great stills but also some awesome candids which is what is so nice about these two.  If you don't hire them, you're missing out :)

   We loved having Hans and Nicole document our wedding day in 2013. From the first email we sent through to well after our wedding, Hans and Nicole have been easy to work with, prompt in communication, friendly, flexible, and positive. They took absolutely stunning photos and were perfectly unintrusive!

    We loved having Hans and Nicole document our wedding day in 2013.  From the first email we sent through to well after our wedding, Hans and Nicole have been easy to work with, prompt in communication, friendly, flexible, and positive.  They took absolutely stunning photos and were perfectly unintrusive; they never had to get in the way to capture each moment with just the right photo (in the church and in the reception hall afterwards).  They have a journalistic style that doesn't sacrifice artistry, but tells the story of the day so that through our photos we are sure to remember every moment many years from now.

     From early morning to late at night, Hans and Nicole worked tirelessly and patiently to help keep us feeling calm and in-control. By the way they work it is clear that they were well prepared, have plenty of experience, and are confident in their abilities as a team. Also, despite the rain on our wedding day, Hans and Nicole managed to capture all the beautiful, memorable shots we could ask for. They have far exceeded our expectations and were worth every penny spent and more.

   Hiring Hans and Nicole was hands down the BEST decision we made!  They truly went above and beyond our expectations.   They really made an effort to get to know us personally and I really loved the husband/wife team feel!  I can't emphasize enough how glad we are to have had them there on our wedding day! 

    Hiring Hans and Nicole was hands down the BEST decision we made for our wedding! They truly went above and beyond our expectations.  Right from the start, they helped us organize a day of timeline to maximize photo opportunities without making us feel rushed the day of. They maintained excellent communication in the months leading up to our wedding and really made an effort to get to know us personally. 

    I really loved the husband/wife team feel they had, it made all the family shots run smooth and efficient. I mean it when I say they saved the day multiple times - from pinning boutonnieres, to lending a helping hand, and even having iced water available when midday temperatures rose into the 90s. I can't emphasize enough how glad we are to have had them there on our wedding day! Numerous guests complemented us on how they stayed out of the way yet still managed to catch the perfect shots. Our photos were sent to us and we are in love! If you are getting married at the Naval Academy I would absolutely inquire about having Hans and Nicole as your photographers.

   They took our "vision" for photos and made it happen-not many photographers can "capture" that special candid moment, but they always did and now we have those photos to cherish forever in our beautiful wedding album. I highly recommend Hans and Nicole, they are such a great photography team and a pleasure to work with!

   We decided to book with Hans and Nicole photography because of their professionalism, quality of work, and their flexibility to cater to our vision.  They were absolutely wonderful to work with!  We communicated very often regarding timelines, lists of suggested photos, etc. I always received a response in a timely manner and Hans & Nicole were very professional about their suggestions and asking for our own opinions.

    Hans and Nicole are the epitome of work-life balance. They are busy being parents, while still maintaining professionalism in their photography business. They even met us for coffee a few weeks before the event to finalize details and put together timelines.  I personally wanted to ensure everything was on a time schedule and they were extremely helpful in that process.  Hans and Nicole went above in beyond when helping us plan our special day and then capturing it all on camera.  They took our "vision" for photos and made it happen-not many photographers can "capture" that special candid moment, but they always did and now we have those photos to cherish forever in our beautiful wedding album.  I highly recommend Hans and Nicole, they are such a great photography team and a pleasure to work with!

...There was a bit of chaos when the ceremony was moved inside and there could have been difficulty in capturing our perfect day. However, Hans and Nicole handled the situation confidently.  They have such a wonderful eye for a good picture whether it be inside, outside, in the rain, or in poor lighting!  

   WOW! What an amazing experience with the two of these fantastic photographers. Nicole saved the day countless times and Hans was so laid back and happy to accommodate whatever photos we thought were necessary. Their presence only made our day that much better.  With a planned outdoor ceremony, we were a little distraught when it rained on our day.  There was a bit of chaos when the ceremony was moved inside and there could have been difficulty in capturing our perfect day.  However, Hans and Nicole handled the situation confidently.

     They have such a wonderful eye for a good picture whether it be inside, outside, in the rain, or in poor lighting. I would work with Hans and Nicole a million more times if ever given the chance.
