Let’s Start a Life Together | Winter Urban Wedding | Munich

„We’re getting married in December… and we’re moving house the week before“,  smiled Yu and Thomas on our first meeting down town Munich. Now that’s a brave couple, I thought to myself! When we started talking about their plans for the day, I soon realised that this was going to be a very special wedding indeed. Christmas was round the corner and the whole of Munich was going to be looking it’s best.

They had split up the day between the civil ceremony at Ruppertstraße with their closest family and friends and a dinner reception in the evening at the Alter Hof. That left us with plenty of time in the afternoon for our couple session. They wanted it to be extra special and capture them in the city they live in and love. The sun was out, and the everybody waved and cheered as we walked through the streets and the Christmas market in the Residenz. They even braved it on the U-bahn! Their favourite store in Munich is Dallmayr. I’m in love with the silhouette shot of them with the Christmas window display in the background.

Katharina Michel did a beautiful job with Yu! She looked stunning all day and well into the night! They and their international guests sure knew how to have a good time!

I wish you both all the best!


Denise is a super talented, extremely nice, and extremely professional photographer. It was so much fun to work with her. All of my family and guests loved her. Can’t express how much we like Denise!! If FB had that, I’d give her 50 stars!
