Washington, D.C. Wedding photography
with a hint of european flair

A soft kiss shared between lovers, whispered promises, a gentle hug - moments gone too soon, yet held in our hearts forever.

an exquisite experience

wedding photography that stands the test of time in and around washington, D.C.

Svenja was super sweet, kind, professional, knowledgeable, and responsive throughout the entire process (from initial outreach to engagement & wedding photoshoot). From our interactions, we could feel that Svenja truly cares for us, our story, and helping us have the best wedding possible. And perhaps best of all, she made both my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. And of course, the photos turned out to be stunning! My husband and I adore them and couldn't stop looking at how lovely they are! We also received lots of compliments from friends & family. Easily one of the BEST investments we've made for our wedding!

Thank you so much, Svenja, for capturing our wedding day so perfectly!

"Easily one of the BEST investments we've made for our wedding!"

Svenja captured my wedding perfectly! Not only did she take BEAUTIFUL pictures but she helped with my wedding timeline too! I decided to go head to head with the weather and of course the weather won. Even through a torrential downpour, Svenja came prepared with the cutest clear umbrellas and photographed the most romantic, and stunning photo of my husband and I’s first kiss.

We have received so many compliments on her photos, her professionalism, and her friendly and kind-hearted personality! Svenja talks you through the photos and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera! I cannot recommend booking Svenja enough!

"Svenja makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera!"

Svenja has been such a joy to work with for our engagement photos! She has an incredible eye for location, wardrobe recommendations, and small details that I was beyond grateful for to prepare for our shoot. She made my fiancé and I comfortable being in front of the camera and guided us through each shot that she took with ease. Svenja is personable, kind, and accommodating and I would recommend her to anyone interested in timeless and beautiful memories captured uniquely by her. When she sent us our speak peak I was over the moon excited! I cannot wait to share them with our family and friends.

I absolutely adore our photos! I can’t believe how beautiful and magical they turned out and how Svenja captured Travis and I perfectly! I love the ones of us laughing because I feel like that’s what we are doing 90% of the time - thank you for making us feel comfortable to show who we are in front of the camera! 

Our wedding day is going to be so so special and we feel so lucky to have Svenja with us to photograph our wedding. 

We can’t wait to share these with my friends and family! These are so incredible!

Beyond happy with our decision of having Svenja as our photographer to capture our wedding day! Her attention to detail amazed me with all the special & intimate moments she captured, especially the candid ones of our loved ones. Our wedding photos were breathtaking! We received so many compliments on them. Prior to our wedding day she made sure to check in & was always willing to set up a call to go over the flow of the day of how I envisioned. She created a beautifully organized timeline that made the day less stressful & made sure to help keep me on that schedule to alleviate added stress.

I could go on and on how happy I was with Svenja. I HIGHLY recommend her to any future brides!

"Our wedding photos were breathtaking! We received so many compliments on them."

My first time meeting and working with Svenja was when my fiancé surprised me with the proposal of a lifetime, with the hidden photographer (Svenja) to boot. Despite me having NO idea as to what was happening, Svenja documented everything to perfection and made us both feel incredibly comfortable being photographed during such a big moment.

Fast forward to seeing our gallery, we knew that she had to be one of our very first wedding vendors to book as she captured our love and the D.C. environment perfectly. We were able to work with her again for an engagement shoot and WOW are we thrilled. She is a dream to plan with, she is proactive, takes her time staging and figuring out best poses, gets to know her couples, makes you feel comfortable, beautiful, photogenic, has attention to detail, and does it all with such radiating passion and excitement for her art.

Thanks to Svenja, we are in a tough spot loving ALL of her photos and having to narrow it down to just a few for our save the dates and invitations…and we haven’t even had our wedding day documented by her yet!

Svenja is absolutely amazing! My fiancé and I hired her to do our engagement photos in DC and she was so professional, friendly and understood what we were looking for. We both had never had photos done before, so we were a little nervous initially about being in front of a camera, but she made us feel comfortable and coached us through the shoot. She helped us choose locations and provided tips on what to wear. It was fun! She got the photos back to us really quickly and it has been fun to share with our families. I'm excited to put the photos in our save the dates for our wedding. Taking these photos captured our time in DC and will be something that we can look back on. If your looking for a photographer, Svenja is reliable, thorough and so hard working. We highly recommend her!
