Wedding photographer in Norway | Ingvild Kolnes

Hi, I’m Ingvild, and I’m so glad you’ve found me!


If you’re here chances are high that you’re about to get married. And considering traveling to Norway. Or want some sweet portraits of you and your love taken somewhere in this beautiful world. I can’t wait to hear your story!


  • For us it was such a relief to feel that the wedding day photography was so easy because we had an engagement session beforehand. You were the right photographer for us because you are such a comfortable person that makes the photography so nice. And you know what looks good in pictures. You are a pleasant photographer who capture beautiful moments with her cameras. Before deciding on a photographer it was important that the photographer could help us make the photography a nice experience as we are not used to being photographed. And of course that we liked the previous work of the photographer. You filled those demands:) We read a review from another couple that weren't particularly comfortable in front of the camera, and therefore recommended you. The photography session was so nice! We are so glad we did an engagement shoot beforehand, so that we knew what it was all about. We didn't have to "get used to" being photographed on the wedding day, which meant the photography went so much smoother. We are gotten so much joy from our photos <3 and not to mention so many compliments. We would like to recommend all other brides and grooms to do an engagement session in advance! It is so good to know how it works. And you'll get great memories from the engagement shoot, and pictures to use in invitations, menus etc.

  • Ingvild Kolnes was the right choice for us, because we wanted natural images, and everything went very well. We felt we were in safe hands, and you did a good job taking pictures without taking up too much space. Several of the guests commented on this too. The photography went very well. We felt comfortable and you had a good way of guiding us. It wasn't too much or too little guidance. Your photos fitted our wished. You were also very approachable and had a nice way of communicating with us.

  • Because of my previous experience with photography I feel that chemistry with the photographer is everything, both because of the mood around the photo shoot, and how good the pictures turn out. You are a skilled and comfortable photographer who see the need of your clients, and you are able to wing it if you have to. You listen to your clients and do what it takes for the photos to turn out great and to make your customers happy. It was very nice to take photos with you, you are a calm and warm person with many good ideas and practical solutions on unforeseen issues that might turn up. You are easy to relate to, and that means a lot for the chemistry which again influences the photos.

About me: Homebody, former world traveler, addicted to work and chocolate. Can’t get enough of Harry Potter, smoothies, sofa cuddles and late night board games. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2008, and fallen completely in love with elopements.

I love bonfires in the woods. With hot chocolate and blankets. I consider myself very eco-conscious and I’m a gardening novice. I’m fairly laid back and above average introverted. I love quiet moments, looking at- and being in, beautiful nature. If I get to spend that time with my favorite person or with my camera in hand hanging out with a cute couple I consider myself the luckiest person alive.

I might feel younger than I am, but I’ve learned a lot in my 32 years. One thing I know for sure is that experiences are worth more than any thing you could ever own. Life is fragile; too short. And it’s inevitable that you’ll look back at the memories you’ve had in life. Those are the moments I collect. I save them so that you can remember all the little things. The way you felt, and how life was in that moment in time.

That’s why I do what I do. So you can share your memories with your loved ones- those who couldn’t be there with you – and those who don’t exist yet. I do it so that you can spend evenings falling back in love reminiscing over your memories. I do it because life is hard sometimes, because you might fight and forget why you’re together, and I do it for that day when one of you isn’t here anymore. I do it for all those times so you can look back and relive it all.

Come on in. Take a look around.
If you love what you see, I’ll be right here when you’re ready to talk about your special day.
