Hi there, I am Aida!

Intimate Wedding & Elopement Photographer

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.

As a photographer, my aim is to keep an eye out for beauty in the form of either an authentic moment conveying raw emotions or even a speck of light streaming in at an interesting angle. I simply love focusing on details that may fleet away at a second’s notice – capturing it to be viewed with pure nostalgia in years to come. My goal is not to document perfection, but rather to represent reality through my lens and unique perspective.

When I am not taking pictures or editing them, most days you would find me dreaming up my next project or executing it – that is, if I am not distracted by my kids smiling at me from the corner of the room tempting me to go over and play with them. I must say that I enjoy the flexibility that self-employment provides me with – not to mention, the creative freedom that fills me with excitement to wake up in the morning and start the day full of zest and enthusiasm.

Within my circle of friends and family, I am mostly known for hating to cook, but loving to eat. Unfortunately not the best combination, therefore, quick and easy recipes are always welcome! Although I may not bring much talent in the kitchen, I make up for it by filling our home with beautiful paintings, images, fluffy pillows and flowers to create a cozy atmosphere.

A Personal Note to Wedding Couples

Let me start by saying that this is a safe space for all types of couples. Discrimination is not present or welcome here.
I believe that everyone deserves beautiful images to commemorate their love and celebration.

My style of photography focuses on capturing your special day in a genuine way so that when you look at your images in years to come, you are transported back to that moment in time. I achieve this by being unintrusive in my approach, documenting various perspectives and editing the tones close to true-life. On couple, engagement and adventure sessions, I tailor my approach to creating images with a more artistic expression of your love.

A Personal Note to Fellow Photographers

I provide wedding photographers with the inspiration, tools and resources needed to build a sustainable brand and business.

I believe in sharing knowledge and being a part of a local and global photography community. You are in the right place if you have an abundance mindset and not a scarcity mindset, because generosity is what makes life more fullfiling and enjoyable.
