When I met Tess, I already had that feeling that this would be one wedding of a kind Although the weather did not allow to celebrate outside, the atmosphere at the Starnberger Lake was just wonderful. Tess and Christian have a lovely family and many special friends that came from all over the world to take part in the big event (unforgettable the Haka dance!). New Zealand-Germany is a very unique and special combination; I wish you guys an amazing life together.

This time I was lucky enough to be featured with one of my pictures on the cover page of the magazine “Braut in München” – with a shot of the beautiful wedding of Eva and James. I met Eva on a wedding in 2011 and she contacted me as soon as she had  decided on a date for her own big day. The chance to photograph another amazing international wedding (German-Australian) in Bavaria was fantastic and I am really grateful to Eva and James for trusting me to accompany them through their special day and also  for being so kind to me.

I could hardly have asked for a better feedback than theirs in the magazine: “Nach der Hochzeit einer Freundin habe ich mich in die Bilder von Beatrice verliebt. Sie hat dieses Gefühl für den richtigen Moment und ist unglaublich kreativ. Und sie war uns nicht nur eine gute Fotografin, sondern auch ein Ruhepol”.

Location: Berghotel Aschbach

Make-up Artist: Daniela Michelini

I am very glad to share with you that I got featured again in the Wedding-Magazine ” Braut & Bräutigam ”  - this time with one of my very special weddings (more pictures in this post).


I think that every bride has a special sparkle in her eyes, but in this specific case there was something more. This couple is just so sweet and with so much energy and we understood each other from the very first moment we met. In addition to that they are so good looking that one would think they are posing for bridal fashion :-) … I wish you both a very happy life together!


Was für eine elegante Hochzeit – von der Location und Deko bis hin zum Braut-Auto und Dresscode. Die Organization von Prime Moments war wie immer sehr professionell und ohne Tadel. Das besondere aber – neben dem fantastischen Ehering der Braut :-) -  war definitiv die liebevolle Beziehung, die das Brautpaar mit ihren Familien hat, diese Herzlichkeit sieht man in der Art nicht immer.


Once in a while I try to imagine what a fairytale wedding would be like and Silva and Graham’s wedding was probably as close at it gets. The elegant location, the gorgeous dress and decoration, the tasteful music, at the same time a heart-touching open air ceremony, all around a very familiar and pleasant atmosphere and last but not least just the amazing friends and family.
Silva and Graham are a special couple and I had the pleasure to get to know them also in everyday life and I just think they are perfect for each other.

Happy anniversary you guys!


There could hardly have been a better start into the wedding season 2012. I particularly love international weddings and Steffi & Mickey’s wedding was one of a kind. The first chapter of this American-German love story actually had been written at the Oktoberfest, cute presents on the tables of the guests reminding thereof. My photographic reportage started during Steffi’s preparation. The bride’s maids, as well as family and friends (of course only girls permitted) just had a great time! As the pictures tell, the bride looked stunning in her gorgeous “self designed” gown. Mickey decided to walk to the church with “the guys”, leaving the classic car (which was a surprise for the bride) to Steffi.

The wedding took place at picturesque settings at the “Protestant Church in Bad Wiessee” and reception at the “Terrassenhof “at the Tegernsee. Two of the many highlights were definitely a video collection of very sweet wishes sent over by American friends and family that didn´t manage to travel to Germany and the first dance that started calm and romantic and turned into a rock-and-roll performance. I wish you guys an amazing time on your honey moon!


Marina und Philipp hatte ich vor ein paar Jahren auf der Hochzeit von Micha und Reini kennengelernt. Genau wie ihre Freunde, haben sie sich ein verrücktes Porträt-Shooting ein paar Wochen nach ihrer Hochzeit gewünscht. Nachdem sie ihr Hochzeitsoutfit nochmal angezogen haben und die tolle Make-up Artistin und Hairstylistin Catharina Borgo verschiedenste traumhafte Frisuren für Marina ausprobiert hat (der Haarschmuck und die Accessoires sind auch ihre Kreation), sind wir 4 Stunden um Landshut herum unterwegs gewesen.
Nicht jeder hat die Idee ein Shooting nach der Hochzeit machen zu lassen, aber dadurch, dass man den geeigneten Tag ganz spontan festlegen kann und schon mal gutes Wetter garantiert ist, eine andere Umgebung als die Hochzeitslocation gewählt werden kann und man keinen Zeitdruck hat, ist das Ergebnis eigentlich immer fantastisch. Am Ende des Tages ist das Brautpaar sogar wie es sich für ein “Trash the Dress”-shooting gehört ins kühle Nass gesprungen! :-)


I am such a proud aunt!


Quest’anno è stato un Natale speciale, non solo perchè dopo qualche anno l’abbiamo festeggiato di nuovo in famiglia, ma anche perchè è nata la mia nipotina, la bimba più bella che abbia mai visto… Benvenuta Anita!
