Introduction – Joseph Weigert
I am a Hungary-based photographer and cinematographer. I’m specialized in wedding photography but I shoot portrait, events, architecture and landscape, as well. I also direct, shoot and edit all kind of short-films ranging from nature to hotel advertisement films. My business is primarily based on wedding photography, I’ve already shot more than a hundred weddings. Though I live in Hungary, I offer my services internationally: mostly I shoot weddings in my home country, Hungary and Austria, but I also get assignments all over Europe. I am fluent in English as I’ve lived years both in the US and UK and I can communicate in German and Hungarian, too.
I started my professional career in 2006, working for Carnival Cruise Lines as a portrait photographer traveling around the world. After a few contracts I left the company as I wanted to pursue my creative ambitions and working as a freelancer was the next step to reach my goals. I established Weigert Images and became a wedding photographer. With the advent of DSLR movie revolution I fell in love with the new medium and started to create short films and won a few awards, as well. Portrait and fashion photography was the next step to complement my wedding photography services. Working in different genres is always a plus, enhancing the overall quality of my images through gaining insight into broader areas of photography.
In 2013 I was accepted into the exclusive International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) which is a highly prestigious group of the very best wedding photographers in the world. I am also the member of Fearless Photographers which is a leading community of the finest wedding photographers worldwide.
My overall aim is to create lasting memories with my images, fulfilling both my clients’ wishes and my creative needs, as well.
