Hello There

I'm Lena


INFP-T / Type 4


Travel addict



I'm a creative mind and documentary wedding, couple and people photographer from Hamburg. I started photography when I was 16. That means I feel comfortable holding a camera for more than 14 years now. I was always the more introvert and quiet girl with the big camera – the artsy one.

I could say that photography is my greatest love. But that would be a lie. Almost as long as I've been taking pictures, Felix has been by my side. We've been together for over 12 years now and I couldn't imagine being without him. He is my true love, my best friend, my biggest supporter, my travel companion, my better half and so much more.

I'm not only a photographer but also an Art Director with a degree in communication design and used to illustrate a lot during my teenage and student years. Design is a big part of what fills my heart.

I can't get enough of cats, art, foggy forests and great stories. So let's start to tell your's!



I am an introvert. For a long time I assumed that you had to be super extroverted and loud and quirky to gain serious recognition as a photographer, to attract clients, and to perform a good job. This belief is still widespread, but in my opinion it is just not true. Some things are more challenging for us introverted photographers such as being around large groups or speaking in public but I try to look at being an introvert as a secret superpower. Here's why:

Introverts are really good listeners.

Introverts have creative, original minds.

The "quiet ones," like me, really tend to listen and consider the ideas and feelings of others. We obsess over details, like to take mental notes, and focus intently on what other people are trying to express.

Introverts, including me, tend to have their own preferences that are less influenced by whatever’s trending today on Social Media. It's not unusual that they may even gravitate toward things that are more individual, slightly strange or quite niche.

Introverts are Focused on Quality Than Quantity.

Introverts are really good observers.

Introverts choose wisely. Introverts can literally feel their energy being drained by being around other people or large groups. For this reason, I also choose clients wisely. I would rather accompany a handful of genuinely suitable clients in whom I can fully invest my time and energy than a large number of clients.

Introverts have good observational skills and that's something that helps me tremendously as a documentary photographer. Keen observation helps me see the subtle moments and details and incorporate them into my images. I am always more attracted to the quiet moments than the loud ones.

My Why

Let's get personal

I rarely leave the house without a camera and love to capture simple days and small moments. I usually have a small point and shoot film camera with me and whenever I see something that somehow fascinates me, I photograph it. Also I create yearbooks with all kinds of pictures taken during one year. Sometimes I sit down and dig through these old photos and suddenly all the emotions start coming out again. My aim is to help you feel the same when looking at pictures of your life. I still find it magical that it is possible to reconstruct a life in snapshots. And it‘s so worth it.

For me, photography is all about telling stories - personal stories, the most important memories to cherish forever. Small moments, details, home and far away places.... I document things I see and want to remember. It doesn‘t always have to be the big celebrations, rather it‘s the little everyday stories or journeys that I want to capture. I love to tell stories in an authentic and honest way that evokes emotion even years later. My biggest goal is to create moments that will live on for generations.

Nice words

Lena! I am in awe 😍 Truly, yours are my favorite photos ever taken!!
The way you captured the emotion of the moment, the moody composition and tone of the story make the photos come to life in a dream state. Also the fact that we captured the Alster which is my favorite place in the world makes me cry of happiness. Thank you thank you thank you ❤️ I really love your images and cherish these memories in Hamburg. I just returned to LA and opening these beauties gave me a piece of Hamburg I felt I lost. Thank you capturing my dream Alster shoot, I really enjoyed our time together!!🤗💛

Liebe Lena, du hast geschafft, was wahrscheinlich niemand sonst geschafft hätte - du hast nicht nur unseren schönsten Tag auf Ewig festgehalten, sondern auch alle Tränen, Lacher und Herzklopfen konserviert. Wir schauen uns unsere Fotos immer und immer wieder an, und fühlen uns wieder genau so wie an dem Tag. Es stimmt einfach alles! Du hast uns an diesem Tag mit so viel Geduld, Ruhe und Hingabe begleitet, dafür sind wir dir unendlich dankbar. ❤️ Auch, wenn man sich nicht wohl fühlt vor einer Kamera oder weiß, was man nun tun soll, schaffst du es, völlig natürliche und angenehme Momente zu schaffen. Und das ist es, was deine Bilder so besonders macht. Tausend Dank für deine wundervolle Arbeit! 🥰
