A down-to-earth wedding photographer in Stockholm, Sweden
9 years of amazing adventures

 

My view of the wedding business is plain and simple. It is a party to celebrate your love with your loved ones. This means that I tend to focus on the relationships that emerge in front of my lense and capture this in the best way possible. I know how important the material things such as beautiful dresses, rings, cakes and decorations are and truly appreciate the art around it. This will never slip by my lenses either. My goal is always to provide you with a slideshow of images that truly touches your heart and makes you feel: “How lucky am I to have such amazing people around me? I am so loved and I love these people with all my heart”.

 

I am also of the opinion that people tend to have many layers of themselves and I am no different. Wedding photography is a huge part of my life since I devote many hours of my week to build relationships to my clients but also my network of colleagues. However, a huge part of my life has also been devoted to youth work in many different ways. I studied international social work and visited places like South Africa and Zambia where I worked with youth at risk.

 

Back home in Sweden I have been involved most of my life with YMCA and spent all my summers at a summer camp outside my hometown Norrköping. I was also a photographer and coach with the creative agency and youth empowering project The Good Talents in Botkyrka, a suburb of Stockholm. Today I am no longer volunteering but am employed part time as a high school counsellor and mentor and love every minute of it.

 

My own love story is an international affair, meeting my boyfriend through a volunteer project in South Africa in 2010. My Australian sambo is now also Swedish and we live together in Stockholm, even though we tend to travel back to Adelaide as often as we can. We also have a common love for Iceland and he is my favourite photographer when it comes to self portraits! We also share a love for retro video games and he owns every console that was ever made.

WHY BEING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IS THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD
  1. I get to build relationships with people from all over the world and learn more about different ways of life
  2. I get to spend one of the single most important days with two loving people and their closets family and friends even though I usually have never known them previously.
  3. I get to sell you the finest quality photo products that I feel excited from top to toe just receiving by the delivery man knowing you will enjoy them for a life time
