David Zimmermann | Hochzeitsfotograf Köln

Wedding Photographer Cologne

Hi, my name is David and I am a wedding photographer. I'm based in Cologne, Germany, but capture your wedding wherever you celebrate. This leads me often in the area around Cologne, Bonn and Düsseldorf. On these pages I try to provide you with as much information as possible about me, my pictures and my documentary wedding photography. If you want, we can continue this in one of the numerous cafes in Cologne, via skype or on the telephone. Justlet me know and we'll meet. I'm looking forward to it.

Images For you

I'm photographing weddings not for me or my portfolio. Also not for the newest instagram-hype or the hippest wedding blog. I want to capture your wedding with my pictures in a natural and authentic way. With wedding photos that suits you and your story. Because in the end it's always most important, that you two like your images the most.

As a local based wedding photographer, I capture most weddings in the area around Cologne, Bonn and Düsseldorf, of course. Nevertheless, I'm also happy to leave Cologne, NRW or even Germany to accompany your wedding with my camera whereever you are celebrating. Whether you plan a wedding in a castle in Bonn, a backyard in Berlin or a finca at Mallorca: You can book me as a wedding photographer in Germany and worldwide. Because I love to travel, I calculate the travel costs only as they accrue for me.

Authentic documentary wedding photography

I capture your wedding day with all the big and small moments which occur. As a wedding photographer, I tell the story of your day in pictures and create emotional memories. My wedding photos should give you the opportunity to dive again and again into the mood and atmosphere of your day. To remember all the moments and emotions that made your wedding day. From your 'yes' over the confetti after the wedding ceremony to the joy of your guests in the evening.

For this I make wedding pictures, which are beautiful but also authentic. I follow a natural and non-posed approach to wedding photography. I always capture your wedding in the way which suits you and your day best. Whether you're planning a Boho-style wedding with a free marriage ceremony, a DIY civil wedding or a vintage barn wedding with a ceremony in an old church. It's always about you two, your day and your love. And so are my pictures.

I like most to start accompany you as a wedding photographer already when you are getting ready- becoming a bride and groom and stay until late into the night. Depending on you plans, this takes between eight and twelve hours. During this time I document your wedding day with all its details without actively intervening. I stay in the background and photograph you and your guests in a natural appearance. I'm equipped with special lenses to do this even in low light situations and only take out my flash when it becomes really necessary.

While we do the bridal portraits, you still can be yourself. I help you to relax and get into the situations that lead to beautiful portraits. How much time we take for this and in which location you want to shoot, is of course your decision. And if you want to, I'm always happpy to advise you on this or other questions in advance with my experience as a longtime wedding photographer.


When I accompany your wedding as a wedding photographer, I meet you on a friend-like level and doesn't see myself only as an uninvolved service provider. I like to support with advice and I want you to feel good when I photograph you. This is why I'll always have a meeting with you before your wedding, so that we get to know each other and talk about you plans, ideas and wishes. If we live too far apart, we can simply use Skype or FaceTime.

As an alternative to a simple meeting, we could also start directly with the photography and make a couple or engagement shoot. For this we take around an hour and a half, look for a suitable location and you will get to know me and my work as a photographer directly. The photos from this are perfect to be used for your wedding invitations.


Are you looking for a wedding photographer for Cologne, Bonn, Düsseldorf or the rest of the world? You want authentic and natural appearing photography and like my portfolio? Just let me know. I'll send you an offer with my packages and an overview of my prices and we discuss everything else.
