Marina Scholze is a wedding and fashion photographer from Munich, Germany. We had her attention for a few minutes to share a bit more about herself and how she approaches her work.
WUN: So, for those who don’t know you, who is Marina Scholze?
Marina: I’m Marina. I’m based in Munich, Germany and shoot mostly weddings. Sometimes I also photograph fashion and bloggers because they are often the same age as me and I hang out with a few of them.
I started when I was 16 when I got my first camera. I went out into the forest with a tripod and took photos of myself, and when showing them online, other people also wanted their portrait taken in the same style, and it all went from there.
Then, one day, I saw that wedding photographers Carmen & Ingo was looking for someone to work for their team, so I applied for the job and got it. They were planning to have a baby, and that would be difficult since they shoot weddings together.
They started to teach me and bring me along to weddings to learn as much as possible before Malia was born. I would then join them for weddings and Carmen and I would take turns shooting so she could nurse her daughter.
