Hi there, we are Gina & Chris!
We are photographers based in Cologne, Germany, where we share an apartment with our two cat ladies Zelda & Elfie. Our hearts are thirsty, our wanderlust never ending and we run on caffeine and the music of Gregory Alan Isakov. We spend a little too much time behind our screens and try to balance it out with travelung and spending lots of time out in nature. Which doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy the inside at all – it’s where the four of us cuddle up on the couch and watch reruns of Mad Men, Peaky Blinders and Stranger Things.
We chose the name A Wild Escape because we are convinced that the decision to spend the rest of your lives together may very well be the grandest adventure of all – and to us personally it also represents making something happen that once was only a wild dream. This is what our work is all about. Finding courage, following your heart, rolling with your gut and creating something amazing while on the journey.
Gina is a coffee-enthusiast that will usually be found with a camera around her neck or sketching notes on crumpled notebook pages. In her free time she will play on her blue guitar and sing loud and out of tune (sorry neighbours!) or indulge in her never ending love for Woody Allen and Dorothy Parker.
When Chris doesn’t shoot or films for an ongoing project he’s planning a camping trip, plays video games or enjoys an evening with friends with great beer and amazing burgers.
