my name is Ellen
HAPPY-GO-LUCKY. CREATIVE. A HOPELESS OPTIMIST.
Welcome to my website! It's great that you are having a look and are interested in my photos.
I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and since then photography has been an integral part of me. Through my travels and longer stays abroad as part of my study of translation, the hobby quickly turned into a passion. Later on I wanted to get to know many new countries and during my time working as cabin crew at home and abroad I photographed what appeared in front of my camera lens. I love to capture special moments, also from crazy and unusual angles because viewed from a different perspective - as is so often the case in life - completely new possibilities arise.
I firmly believe in looking at things with love changes everything. I feel very privileged to have turned my passion into a job and I look forward to hearing from you.
"Dear Ellen, we wanted to thank you again for your great photographic accompaniment to our wedding. The pictures have turned out beautifully and will always serve as a reminder of this great day. You can tell that you do your job with passion, dedication and love. We especially liked your relaxed, open and funny manner and we felt very comfortable with you. You captured the most important moments of our day for us and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We wish all newlyweds such a great personality by their side as you!"

"Dear Ellen, you accompanied our wedding in Oberstdorf. And although we come from the north and we had to discuss everything by phone beforehand, everything worked out perfectly. Not only did you take the photos, you also took other things off our hands. But the most important thing is that we felt absolutely comfortable ♥️ And the result is better than we wished for. Thank you Ellen for joining us on the most beautiful day in the most beautiful place in the world."

"You became aware of us through an advertisement on the Internet and I choosed you directly because of you sympathetic manner. In our phone calls, as bride, I felt safe and understood. We had a lot of ideas for our wedding photos that you implemented really well. You really can see the attention to detail. You not only snapped these “posed” photos, but kept us on your cameras the whole time. Moments that we would otherwise no longer realize because we are so excited. We think our wedding photos are just wonderful. You didn't make us feel strange with your way. Your work is really adorable too. Thanks for that."
