Photographer Jens Schumacher’s career is about as well known as a pair of underwear.
But when he’s on a wedding day, it’s about as famous.
When the camera isn’t rolling, it makes an appearance.
And if he’s lucky, a couple of photographers are already in position.
One of them is photographer Jens Jostein.
He’s taken on some of the most beautiful and beautiful weddings in the world, including the one in which a bride and groom had their wedding photographed in a cathedral in Germany.
Jostin was born in Berlin in 1967 and is one of the world’s leading wedding photographers.
He lives in New York, but he says he still enjoys working in the States.
“I think I’m just as good as anyone else out there, if not better,” he says.
It’s not enough to be an expert photographer. “
You’ve got to have a certain amount of passion and a certain level of professionalism.
When the bride and her family got married at the cathedral in 2009, the couple got to enjoy some of what he does best. “
The photographer who has the passion to go out and do it, and the photographer who can take that to the next level is the one who wins.”
When the bride and her family got married at the cathedral in 2009, the couple got to enjoy some of what he does best.
They photographed a wedding in the cathedral’s magnificent dome, where the bride, Anna, and her groom, Peter, got to meet their loved ones.
“It was so beautiful, it was beautiful, and it was the biggest thing I’d ever seen,” says Jostiein.
“We went there and did it in the best light possible, so that’s why we love it.
We could have done it in a church, we could have been in a castle.
It was like that for a couple who have been together for over 10 years. “
And I know the couple that we did it with.
It was like that for a couple who have been together for over 10 years.
It is a very special day.”
As the bride took a picture of the family in the dome, Josteein went to the camera and snapped a close-up of the couple’s faces.
“So we are now two years and a half behind, but I’m still there and I’m shooting, and we’re still happy,” he laughs.
JOSTEIN, THE BIRDSETTER The wedding photographer is well known for his portraits of famous people.
He also loves weddings.
But Jostelein’s favourite thing about weddings is that they don’t always go smoothly.
“When you’re photographing someone, you’re really not thinking about what’s going on in the wedding,” he explains.
“This time I think that it’s really important to make sure that you are capturing the bride in all of her glory, and not just in her face. “
“If you want to photograph her in her most beautiful state of mind, you need to have her at her most relaxed state of thought.””
And when she is still in her natural state, you have to take her in a different way than when she’s relaxed. “
If you want to photograph her in her most beautiful state of mind, you need to have her at her most relaxed state of thought.”
And when she is still in her natural state, you have to take her in a different way than when she’s relaxed.
“She is not thinking at all.
You have to have that balance, and when you do that, it will work.”
It’s a balancing act when the bride is in her own head.
She doesn’t realise she’s being photographed when the camera is rolling.
“Because she’s not thinking, she’s looking at her phone,” he continues.
“There’s a time when she’ll just look at her screen.
“In the best possible case, I will get to see her smiling, and she’ll be happy. “
But in the worst case, she will be sad. “
In the best possible case, I will get to see her smiling, and she’ll be happy.
But in the worst case, she will be sad.
And you won’t be able to take that photograph.”
This is why Jostlein, like many wedding photographers around the world is more than happy to offer his services on the spot.
“At weddings, I am often asked, why I do it?
It’s because it’s my passion,” he said.
“A lot of people say: ‘Why do you do it?’
But the truth is that my job is more about giving the best, the most professional, the best service.
However, the fact that I do that makes me happy, and I know that it will help me a lot to be able take some pictures at weddings
