Ep. 004: Yvonne Zemke | Be Inspired Photography Podcast
Wedding photographer Yvonne Zemke on the Be Inspired Photography Podcast.
In this week’s episode, we chat to wedding photographer Yvonne Zemke about being prepared, the importance of building relationships with your clients and what makes a truly great wedding photograph.
Yvonne Zemke’s Bio:
The first years of my childhood I spent in Berlin. Then my family moved to Austria (skiing 4 months a year isn’t a really bad thing). After my schooldays – I was 18 – I went back to Berlin. This city it still my favourite town and I set my heart on it. The only thing that could separate me from it: my husband. So I live in a small town nearby Dusseldorf now. Shortly before finishing my business administration studies, I consciously decided against an office career and worked towards exactly the opposite: irregularity, creativity, risk and a good deal of spontaneity: my own business.
