When you look at my photos I want you to be able to relive your wedding day, even decades later. The images should show your personal favorite moments and little stories you might have missed. To transform your day into a photo story I prefer to stay under the radar if possible. Iʼll try to take most of the photos of your guests unnoticed by them. To be honest: When a person starts to pose for my camera, is usually, when I stop shooting. The photos should be as natural as possible, most of my images are candid photography. Think about it as a journalistic approach to document the entire day.


Too many posed photos and serving unhappy customers.
Please tell me if there is anything I should be aware of or pay special attention to on your wedding day. Of course I will pose people in group shoots of your family or the bridal party, but I wonʼt walk up to everybody, interrupt their conversation and ask them to smile.

Stefan Ludwig Photography also offers video services. If you already have a photographer, I can do video only. I also offer video and photography combined in one package. This offers the advantage of not having to coordinate with multiple parties who donʼt know each other. Rather, you have one team working together to give you the best possible experience on your wedding day.



"He caught all of the little moments that express so much and really captured the feeling of the day. I would recommend him to anyone wanting the best. Stefan also was so comfortable to be around and fit right in with our bridal party :)"

"Stefan and Kai did the video for our wedding, and they were patient, diligent, and kind, and we truly appreciate that. They worked very hard to get all the best shots, and also listened to our requests when filming. Stefan is excellent at communication, and is always quick to respond to any questions. We got married in Rochester, and they were willing to travel. They also used a drone, which captured some amazing shots. The videos are breathtaking and heartwarming, and they tell a story. I got many compliments from family and friends, saying how unbelievable the video was, and how it made them cry all over again. It did the same for me : ) as if I were reliving my wedding day. Thank you!"

"My wife and I received our wedding photos from Stefan last week, and we were incredibly pleased with the outcome! From day one of our wedding planning my wife made it a priority to find a photographer that she was confident in. I encourage anyone that is reading this to follow him on Instagram and check out his work. Stefan is professional, easy to get a long with, and a very talented photographer. If you have the fortune of booking him for an occasion, you can rest assured that you won’t be disappointed."

"We took a chance based on a referral from friends whose wedding you hadn't even shot yet... and booked you (from Buffalo) for our New Jersey wedding (talk about risk taking)! Well, it was a risk 100% worth it! From the first meeting during our engagement shoot til the wedding day you were professional and comfortable to work with. You were great at listening to what we wanted while also giving your own creative direction. Our pictures are PHENOMENAL and your pricing was the most fair of everyone we researched. Your online portals are easy to use and very organized! Thank you for capturing the essence of our wedding and providing memories that that we'll carry with us for eternity."


German. New in Buffalo, NY.
Married to a Buffalo girl. Two cats.

I recently moved to Buffalo, NY. Why Buffalo? Because my wife grew up here. I was born and raised in Münster, Germany and lived most recently in Vienna, Austria. I worked as a journalist for financial newspapers, websites and magazines. I wrote mainly about tech companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google among other things. As part of my job I was exposed to photography and filmmaking and discovered a passion. It didnʼt take long for family and friends to ask me to photograph their weddings. I realized how much fun it was to be part of such an emotional day which you remember for a lifetime. Since then, I was a wedding photographer and videographer at more than 100 weddings in the USA, Germany, Mexico and Brazil. My work has been featured in Artvoice, the Buffalo Wedding Magazine as well as in the Rochester Wedding Magazine.
