Hochzeit mit freier Trauung



As a destination wedding photographer in Germany, traveling and discovering new places is one of my greatest passions, just like photography. That's why I'm always happy to take pictures at new locations! No distance is too long for me to accompany you. And most of the time it's even cheaper than you think. Let's talk about how we can take the most beautiful photos at your dream location! 

It might sound strange, but actually 99% of my couples say this. Even when I was modeling, I thought the same of myself (I only enjoyed modeling because that meant I could watch the photographers at work — clearly my creative passion lay behind the camera, not in front of it!). I understand your anxiety all too well! That’s why one of my jobs as a wedding photographer is to make sure you’re as relaxed as possible. No weird poses, no forced smiles — you can talk, laugh, look into each other’s eyes, and just take a deep breath and enjoy the moment while I capture it all on camera. When you act naturally and feel free to just be yourself, you’re guaranteed to look amazing! 

As the Italians say, "sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata," which means something like, "bathed bride, happy bride!" I’ll never let rain get in the way of taking some amazing photos. Though we’ll keep our fingers crossed for clear skies, we’ll be sure to have a plan B if things start getting a bit wetter than expected. There’s something so romantic about a couple cuddling together under a transparent umbrella, looking into each other’s eyes as pearls of water collect on the surface. No matter the weather, we’ll still take some completely unforgettable and gorgeous photos together.

Unfortunately, after so many years, this has happened before. My devices are all insured, so it doesn't matter. But of course I don't want to stand there without a camera at the most important moment. Luckily I always carry not one, not two, but three cameras with me at all times. Better safe than sorry! 😉 

I usually work alone when I photograph weddings. I love being in undercover mode and mingling with guests to capture the most natural moments. Sometimes I take a second photographer with me if there are many guests or the location is very large. We can always discuss a second photographer during the planning process to see if it makes sense for you and your day. 

You have chosen me to be your wedding photographer in Munich (yay!) and now you’d like to secure a booking for your wedding day. Your booking will be fixed by an appointment reservation fee. Once this payment is received, the day is yours! Any requests from other couples for that date will be turned down so I can focus on giving you my undivided attention.

As a Munich wedding photographer, I cover all travel expenses within a radius of 100 km from Munich center! It's my gift to you. Yay! For longer distances, the travel costs will be calculated individually. I am happy to give you a more detailed description of the expected travel costs in the offer. For longer or very early weddings, it usually makes sense for me to arrive the day before to avoid delays due to traffic jams, increased traffic, delayed trains, etc. Only the route, but not the travel time to the location, will be charged.

Sometimes a good party lasts until the early hours of the morning. After giving my all at your wedding (and dancing properly at the end), I can no longer drive a car for longer periods that night. In the case of a very long wedding, or one that’s a significant distance away, I may require overnight accommodations. I'm happy to discuss who should take care of the accommodation and other details individually. 

After your wedding or photo shoot, you will receive an invoice from me as a pdf via email. This should be paid within 14 days. Additional costs (such as travel expenses or additional hours) will be added and the appointment reservation fee will be refunded, i.e. deducted from the total amount.

Let me know if you would prefer to pay in installments.

Within two weeks of your wedding, you’ll receive a preview with a small selection of my personal favorite photos. About seven to eight weeks later you will have the finalized collection in your hands, featuring all the wedding photos from your day.

Of course! It makes me super happy to see couples share their photos online! The photos can be shared online as long as a clear reference to the photographer is visible, e.g. photos from www.judithstoop.com. You can also link to my official Facebook page: facebook.com/JudithStoopPhotography or my Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/judith.stoop/ 

Since you booked me based on the photos you have already seen on my website, you will understand how important it is for me as a photographer to show my work. Therefore, I am grateful for all the couples who let me show a small selection of photos. Of course I'm proud of the photos we create together! If you’d prefer I not share your wedding photos on my site, please let me know. 

Yes, I love photographing people and getting to know them. I often take pictures of “my” couples later in life when their family is growing, which always makes me particularly happy! But I also shoot portrait photography and business branding photography in Munich and beyond! I’m always inspired by taking photographs of other entrepreneurs so they can use them for their businesses and thrive in their work!
