Story

I am — like the most of us – self-employed and nobody besides myself takes responsibility for my education. So I decided to dedicate my November to workshops, content retreats, networking events or whatever comes to my mind, which would drive my business forward. In 2021 I participated at a content retreat on Tenerife called ›Ephemeral‹.

On the last day we shot a Hollywood inspired wedding with Indie and Berty as bride and groom. They are originally from Paris, got married in Thailand and re-lived their wedding day at Gran Meliá Palacio de Isora. Since their wedding day, they have been in front of photographers lenses multiple times but rarely shoot the whole day reportages. They told me that the vibe on Tenerife was really close to their “original” wedding, which made this shooting day very special to them.

When I captured this shot, Indie and Berty have just exchanged their vows in front of a gorgeous sunset. They were on their way to the evening reception finishing the day with champagne, cake and us.

Alissa Katharina Beer

Photographer Germany Canon 5D Mark IV Sigma Art — 35mm F/1.4
Heja I am Alissa. I am a wedding photographer and I run a small graphic design studio with a friend called Studio Katharina + Katharina. I have a lot of energy in my 167cm and people say my word per minute rate is astonishing. I love my pictures the most when their authentic, intimate and full of life. Next to Photography I have a thing for dark chocolate, good coffee and being surrounded by people.
