HI, I’M AIDA | PHOTOGRAPHER & PODCASTER
Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I am so glad that you are taking the time to find out more about me. I am delighted to share a little bit about myself with you, both the serious side and the unavoidable quirkiness! This girl comes to you from a land so hospitable and welcoming that anyone would feel at home, Ethiopia. I have now found my new home with my husband, Tim, our little boy, Joshua, and baby girl, Mayra, in the small German city of Constance, right by the lake and a stone’s throw away from the breathtaking Swiss Alps.
I AM A MOM OF TWO,
IMPERFECTLY JUGGLING LIFE’S
RESPONSIBILITIES AND CHASING
MY DREAMS ALONGSIDE
THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, TIM
- 90s hip hop will always get me on the dance floor!
- Always up for a re-run of Friends or The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
- Yes, Gen Z – I part my hair on the side!
- Personality tests are life – Enneagram 7!
- “But first, coffee” is my ultimate personality trait!
When I first entered the world of wedding photography, I was pretty much clueless. I spent hours upon hours scouring the internet and learning everything from camera techniques to marketing approaches. I eventually started investing in education through in-person workshops/conferences and online courses. Over the years, I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience – I feel compelled to share my insights as well.
I provide wedding photographers with the inspiration, tools and resources needed to build a sustainable brand and business. Tune into my podcast My Wedding Season – The Podcast and read my blogs posts, which are packed with a ton of free value. I also offer brainstorming sessions for a more one-to-one consultation. I am also a Brand Ambassador for Conference + Chill – Virtual Photo Gathering!
I DON’T WANT TO SIMPLY BE A
CONSUMER OF INFORMATION BUT
ALSO A CONTRIBUTER IN THE
FORM OF CONTENT CREATION
FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
VALUES & VISION
I stand against all forms of discrimination and am an advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion. This is a safe space – NO to racism, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia etc…
I envision a world where the entirety of the wedding industry is known for being accepting and welcoming to everyone. And that wedding photographers will treat all clients fairly.
PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPEMENT
It is important to continuously work on growing as a person. I believe that our personal growth is closely tied with the growth of our brand and business.
I envision a world where wedding photographers are able to cultivate their artistic voice and run a business that feels authentic to them – without feeling stressed.
Integrity is an honorable and important trait in personal relationships as well as in professional endeavors.
I envision a world where all wedding industry professionals operate in integrity when providing products/services; collaborating with peers; sharing content and creating educational resources and hosting workshops.
I am on a mission to help move the wedding industry forward in the right direction by continuously advocating for equal representation of marganalised groups, supporting wedding photographers in their personal and professional developement and striving for a higher level of integrity. I want to keep challenging the status quo by voicing my thoughts when it matters, welcoming fresh perspectives and embracing innovation for us to grow, evolve and set an example for other industries.
