    We are very happy with the results, you were very comfortable to work with. We got good information throughout. Wedding photos are very important, and we felt very safe with you, which was very comforting for us.

    The photoshoot 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 of 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 upfront.

    In advance, we were looking for someone who had the style we wanted, a relaxed and natural approach. Ingvild's style matched our wished for the day just right. We had heard a lot of positive things about her and liked the images very much.

    It was a relaxed, effortless and a great experience that left us with exactly the pictures we wanted from our wedding day 🙂 We have gotten so much praise for our photos!! We are so glad we got so many photos that capture the most precious moments of the day:)

    The photography was top-notch. We really appreciated doing an engagement session beforehand, to get to know each other, talk about the wedding and our wishes for the day. We also got a bit used to being photographed to make us more comfortable on the wedding day and we felt it was very natural and effortless 🙂

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.
