Having a good photographer is even more important when you’re eloping instead of having a big wedding. There won’t be anyone else there to photograph you. No one to remind you of the sweet and funny moments. The whole day is filled with them even if no one else is there to see it. Don’t underestimate the value of getting your elopement adventure photographed. It’s definitely an investment worthwhile.
The photos are amazing, and we couldn't have asked for better memories to look back on!
We really are so grateful for everything you've done for us. More than we're able to express.

You'll get your own personalised timeline suggestion, as well as location ideas and vendor recommendations, after I get to know you and know what would suit you.
30++ pages filled with everything you need to know to plan your dream elopement.
Do you edit the images we get?
Of course! The photos are edited in the style you see here on the website- with muted tones and moody contrasts. I prefer to keep things natural and authentic. I may make some small adjustments like remove a spot or something in the background, but that’s it. You'll look like your beautiful selves.
How many photos do we get?
The number of photos you get totally depends on your schedule, but you can expect about 40-50 images per hour of photography. You'll receive high resolution photos with private printing rights - that means you can print and share with your family and friends.
Can you help us find the perfect location?
Yes! Definitely! No matter if you choose a place I've been before or not I'll research and plan ahead. I'll give you options to choose from and guide you through the process.
Where are you located and where do you photograph?
I live in Southern Norway, but I’ll travel anywhere to photograph you. My prices include travel, so there are no extra expenses. Feel free to get in touch even if you have no idea where you want to elope.
How and when do we book you?
Send me a message to hear more about the process, prices and availability. It is best to book as soon as possible. Some dates are booked more than a year in advance, but do get in touch even if it is short notice- your date may still be available. I am currently accepting bookings for 2019 and 2020. To reserve your date we sign a contract and you pay a 50% retainer.
When do we get the finished images?
We're not ready to get married yet / are already married / want honeymoon photos / pre-wedding photos - can you still help?
Send me a message and tell me about the two of you and what you're dreaming of doing. We'll set up a call to make sure we get along, and I'll tell you more about the process and give you suggestions and advice.
As soon as the formalities are done I'll send you a questionnaire to get to know you better. This is how I can personalise the location suggestions and the timeline for your elopement, as well as give you a list of vendors.
Since we already know each other, it'll feel so much more natural to have me around on your elopement day. This is your adventure, and not just a photoshoot. However - the photos you get will be an invaluable reminder of this day.
The photos are so nice! I am completely thrown back, this is perfect Ingvild!
These are fantastic memories to cherish for life, I can't wait to make an album and get a photo up on the wall.
Thank you so so much for an amazing job, we are so happy we chose YOU!
Because of my previous experience with photography, I feel that chemistry with the photographer is everything, both because of the mood around the photoshoot, 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.
To us, there was never another choice but you, Ingvild. It was so easy for us to relax, and you did a good job including the surrounding nature. Which we really appreciate.
We are so glad that we chose to do an engagement session beforehand. It made us lower our shoulders and just enjoy the day!
Ingvild Kolnes is a calm photographer, who gets an otherwise stressful day to become relaxing in front of the camera. We had such a good time and laughed loads! It was a great experience.
Thank you so much for the amazing job you did, and we can tell how much work you put into everything you do! You are such a skilled photographer, and we want to recommend you to everyone we know! You got us to relax and feel like being in front of the camera was completely natural.
