Hi, I'm caroline, a Wedding Photographer in BAsel.

I'm here to photograph your wedding!

A real romantic, plant fiend, and, in case you hadn’t guessed, just the person to photograph your most important moments. I seek beauty in the shadows as well as the light and find perfection in the imperfect. For me, it’s all about authenticity - giving you the real and emotional rendition of your wedding day, rather than a clipped and choreographed highlights reel. From belly laughs to hand holds and the way the fabric of your skirt just catches the light - that sets my soul on fire. I love to work with couples who are relaxed, lighthearted, imaginative and fun.

I photograph effortlessly stylish, down-to-earth and free-spirited couples, families and individuals who are looking for something a little different.

This is my boyfriend John, I know you can't see his face in this photo but trust me, it's lovely.

 

He sends me little videoclips of things (usually animals) that he knows I would like from Twitter. It's cute, and it's just one of the many wonderful things about him.

A few random facts:

 

+ I notice the little things and take pleasure in them all.

 

 

+ I Always try to make friends with dogs (and cats) that I spot in the street (UNFORTUNATELY cats ALWAYS like John more!)

 

 

+ I literally stop and smell roses. yellow ones are best - try it!

 

 

+ weirdly, I'm pretty good at finding four leaf clovers.

 

 

+ GUESTS AT WEDDINGS OFTEN MISTAKE ME FOR A FRIEND OF THE COUPLE INSTEAD OF "JUST" THE PHOTOGRAPHER. PREVIOUSLY, THIS REALLY ANNOYED ME AS I THOUGHT IT MEANT THEY DIDN'T TAKE ME SERIOUSLY. NOW I LOVE IT AND TAKE IT AS A COMPLIMENT THAT I FIT RIGHT IN.

 

 

+ I LOVE BEING IN THE MOUNTAINS.

 

 

+ I love cooking, but do not like the daily "what shall we have for tea?" decision! If someone could just tell me then go get the ingredients that would be super!

 

 

+ John and I met while we were both working a ski season in France.

 

 

+ Swimming in the Rhine AND ENJOYING A BEER ON THE RIVERBANK WITH FRIENDS ARE MY FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO HERE IN BASEL.

 

 

+ I really miss London pubs.

 

 

+ And tea, I miss big boxes of tea! The tiny packs they have here are just not enough!

The technical details.

I’ve been a photographer for over a decade.


Before I was a wedding photographer in Basel, I was a photographer for The Department of Chemistry at Cambridge University - slightly different setting (!) - but still photographing people and their interesting stories.

 

Based in beautiful Basel in Switzerland for nearly 5 years now and I’m very happy to travel anywhere in Europe for work.

 

Originally I'm from Cambridge in the UK.

 

The first wedding I photographed was for my Dad's boss (terrifying!) I'm pleased to say it went well. Everything else has rolled on from there.

 

I've photographed over 100 weddings all over Europe in pretty much every type of venue you could imagine.

 

I have a First in Professional Photography.

 

I, too, get nervous in front of the camera. You can see my laughable attempt at recording a 15 second video over here!

If you are ready to book, or just want more information. I'd love to hear from you. Get in touch, tell me your plans and let's grab a coffee.
