Norway wedding and elopement photographer | Ingvild Kolnes

Let’s tell your love story - together

At its heart wedding photography should recount your wedding day adventure (beautifully).

  • ★★★★★

    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.

    We got good guidance and were very happy with how the photos turned out. We were very grateful for all the images we got. You took your time, and that helped contribute to the photography becoming a lot of fun.

    We are very happy with our pictures, and how the photographing was done. We have already recommended you to others.

    We were very comfortable and had a lot of fun. We had a lot of good guidance, both through email and in the meeting before the photo session.

It’s not about the perfect pictures.

It’s about capturing who you are.

I tell love stories through my lens. I get to know you. Like friends, hanging out and catching up. You see, for me this line of work is less about the technicalities and more about beginning and ending with who you are – as individuals, and as a couple, crazy about each other and your future together.

I call Kristiansand, Norway, home – yet my role takes me around the world, and back again – so wherever your nuptials take place, I can be right there with you.

Your story takes centre stage.

It starts with you

You could be planning an incredible DIY wedding, or organising an elopement to a national park. You might be going for a beautiful white wedding with a creative twist, or opting for complete originality. Whatever your wedding day looks like, I’ll ensure that it’s your story that takes centre stage. In the end I want you to look back on these photos, and say “yup, that’s us”. My job is catching those little looks, the fleeting glances, the interactions that pass in a moment yet say so much – because these are the split-second shots that equal hours of posed pictures. Meaningful. In every sense of the word.

You’re doing it your way,

and I can’t wait to see what you have planned.

Yet this day is also about those around you – your bursting with pride father, tearful mum, excitable siblings – those who’ve been by your sides separately and together – it’s also about them. I get it. I capture them. I document the celebrations, the joy, the moments that reflect just what your day means to them, too.

You’ll be amongst a select few

Just a handful wedding couples, each year.

Truth be told? The craft of wedding photography takes time. Lots of time. Before your big day come lots of preparation as well as time spent on care and consideration in post-production – time committed to illuminating the many moments and emotions I’ve captured.

But whether client of mine, or not, my wedding resources can walk you, step by step, through your big day.
