Full Description
Weddings... where do I start? It's one of the most exciting celebrations in life. It's a celebration of love, friendship and commitment. And it deserves to be photographed and filmed to be documented forever (your children will see this one day!). Please have a look at my pictures and videos on my website and feel free to get in touch. I'm happy to send you my brand-new brochure and of course I'm happy to meet for coffee or have a video chat. I'd like to get to know you a bit and find out what kind of wedding you're after before I pitch my ideas to you. At the end of this conversation I will leave you with a final quote for your consideration. On the day itself I'll be there nice and early in order not to miss anything: you two getting ready, the best man checking the groom’s outfit or the bride’s mother inspecting the bride’s hair. The guests arrive and the ceremony starts…this the most important part for you but also for me as a photographer. The groom waiting in front, the bride’s entry, the vows, the speeches, the signatures, the ring, the kiss, grandma crying… there are literally hundreds of beautiful and moving moments for me to capture. My goal is to create timeless pictures – photos that don’t look dated even after many years. No cheesy effects or filters, just original and personal impressions of everything that happens. Let's have fun during your 'official' photoshoot - I'll guide you and teach you a few very simple poses that look natural and fun. What I want to bring out in my pictures is how you two are together - fun, romantic, crazy-in-love.... I hope you will like my listing here on Bridebook. Please get in touch via the contact form or via my website https://schmittat.uk (please copy-paste). I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Nothing was too much for Moritz
We’re so pleased we chose Moritz for our photography and videography. Our priority was to have a photographer/videographer that we felt comfortable with, offered great value for money, and delivered high quality material – and he completely delivered. From the start, Moritz was responsive in his communication and calm and methodical in his preparations, filling us with confidence. On the day, Moritz and Nick were proficient in taking great quality imagery and footage without getting in the way of everyone’s celebrations. Nothing was too much for Moritz. He took a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure that he captured the day perfectly for us. The fantastic video content and imagery are testament to his focus, creativity and attention to detail. We’re thrilled with the material and our family and friends all love it too! Moritz’s narrative approach means that we have such a lovely capture of some really special moments. Each time we watch the videos and look at the pictures we are transported back to our wedding! Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Great photographer!
We had our engagement shoot with Moritz in March and he's booked for our wedding next August... We actually changed our wedding date so we could have him shoot our big day! Such a great, easy-going person with an amazing talent!

100% go for Moritz Schmittat
Moritz is simply the best, and I just regret we probably won’t see him for a while...not at least maybe we need him for a family photoshoot one day when we have kids :)) As to our current review; from the very first Skype call we had (and we did our research/due diligence - we spoke to at least 5 other photographers) he was the standout one! He is also very competitively priced, and the quality is fantastic! From the beginning until the wedding day and including the wedding day - he has been a dream to work with. His professionalism, creativity, skills and enthusiasm are what everyone needs!! Moritz was with us from 10am until 12pm!! He didn’t stop - he has such amazing energy! He was amazing at our wedding day, as was Nathalie - who assisted for the video. Also, they are both so nice and friendly they blend in so nicely with the guests and truly become part of the day & celebrations! We are yet to see the album and video, but I have no doubt they will exceed our expectations! THANK YOU “MORITZ SCHMITTAT PHOTOGRAPHY”!

100% go for Moritz
Moritz is simply the best. From the very first Skype call we had (and having spoken to at least 5 other photographers - yes, we did our research and due diligence) he was the standout one! I remember we spoke for at least 1 hour the first time, and after the call we already knew Moritz must be our Photographer, and 2 weeks before the wedding we also asked him to take a video. I am so glad we did! From the beginning until the wedding day and including the wedding day - he has been a dream to work with. His professionalism, creativity, skills and enthusiasm are second to none. Also, Moritz and Nathalie blend-in so well with the guests - they just become part of your big day!! He was amazing at our wedding day, and him and Nathalie worked for more than 10 hours non-stop. We really hope our paths cross again - perhaps at a family photoshoot in a few years! Thanks Moritz!!

Treasure the memories for ever
Moritz took so many amazing pictures of our wedding day so that we can treasure the memories forever. He was able to catch all of the key moments with so much emotion in the photos. Throughout the day he was always in the background taking pictures that look so natural and showed all of the colour of the day.

Truly special shots
Moritz is a friendly, skilled photographer able to put subjects at ease and capture some truly special shots. With both of us not being naturally comfortable in front of the camera, Moritz took the time to understand what we wanted from our wedding photos and made the whole process enjoyable. We are delighted with the results and everyone has commented that the photos are fantastic.
