HEY, I'M BJÖRN
your (destination) wedding photographer
Based in the seaport of Hamburg, Germany. For me, there is nothing like standing on the docks at night, watching the waves crush into the harbour while the city sleeps.
I was born in 1977, the year that punk rock and Star Wars came to life, and I was raised on both. I guess that explains a certain 'rebel streak' rather well.
I love to ride my (fixed gear) bike and the feeling of complete freedom while racing across one of Hamburg's countless bridges or down a mountain road in a faraway country.
The exploration of the faraway...
...and the experience of the clash and (even more so) the togetherness of cultures has greatly influenced me and my outlook on life.
My work is all about connection, emotion, authenticity and equality.
I love to document (destination) weddings of creative and adventurous off-beat couples who are madly in love with life and each other.
SOME (FUN) FACTS
I am being told I look like Bela B., the drummer/singer of famous German punk band “Die Ärzte”. And yes, there’s this photo of us together.
I was born the day after the king of Rock ’n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, died.
Although I am vegan for many years now, I would like to get rid of insects sometimes, especially spiders and wasps.
I didn't like cats until my girlfriend and her feline companion moved in with me and yeah, cat pictures appeared on my Instagram account on the very next day.

energy filled punk rock / hardcore shows, the ones where sweat is dropping from the ceiling and you find yourself in one big crowded pack with the others
vegan fast food
(neo-) traditional tattoos
the disarming candour of the Bondi beach lifestyle
immersing myself in the overwhelming experience of nature in Iceland

racism, nationalism and patriotism
