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!

  • First of all, we are extremely grateful for your service. You are an incredibly good photographer and you have really met our expectations! 🙂
    The photos are so beautiful. We have felt very safe to leave our memories in your hands, and we feel we have got our memories forever. The album was beautiful and perfect. Thank you so much for this and for the photos. Again, you are so talented, and I can't wait to tell people about it, and the good service you provide! You can count on it!

  • We are very happy with the results, you were very comfortable to work with. We got good information the whole time. Wedding photos are very important, and we felt very safe with you, which was very comforting for us.The photo shoot went very well! We felt very comfortable in an unfamiliar situation. We got good guidance and tips for what would look good in the photos. During the ceremony we couldn't even tell you were there, and you still got so many good photos! Very good 🙂We have to thank you once again for really good photos! We are incredibly happy! We hope you continue as a photographer, you are so good! You will hear from us if we need more photos in the future 🙂

  • It was so great that you met us beforehand and that you saw where we wanted to take the pictures. We got a lot of info, you "approved" our choice of location and we got to meet you and see that it didn't have to be so scary that us camera shy folks thought! Of course it was a bit intimidating right away but then we loosened up and it was a lot of fun! I am amazed that you got so many great photos from our silliness. We chose you for so many reasons! You take fantastic photos, you were never annoyed with us no matter how many questions we asked (at least we think so :P), you provided a service we were not expecting (you could have just taken the pictures, sold us the products and that was it). We got gifts (I love gifts), you radiate safety and experience and you are not afraid to have a sense of humor and laugh along with us when we take the pictures. THANK YOU!!Having YOU as our photographer was very safe and comfortable for us who felt as we were on thin ice. Your knowledge and experience made it easy for us. We have asked a lot of questions along the way, but we are so happy with all the information we got up front.

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.
