About Hilo & Ginger
Hilo & Ginger was founded by photographer Luca-Mercedes Stemer in 2013. Born in Austria and raised around the world, the traveling gene has been soever present. Luca is based in New York City, shooting weddings & editorials worldwide.
She occasionally works together with photographer, friend and colleague, Xenia Bluhm if two full wedding photographers are needed, alone in case of an intimate wedding/elopement, and with a second photographer for bigger weddings.
She is available for Bridal Fashion Lookbook campaigns and Editorial features for lifestyle/product/food styling stories.
ELEGANT || AUTHENTIC || SIMPLICITY
Photographs are part of our human legacy, and an instrument to document our existence.
Xenia Bluhm is a leading Austrian wedding photographer with more than 5 years of experience in the industry. She is based out of Hamburg/Germany, covering mostly Germany, Austria & Switzerland for Hilo & Ginger if Luca is booked already. Luca and Xenia have worked closely together on various projects over the past 10+ years.
