Real Weddings

I am a wedding photographer with a photojournalistic + editorial approach covering weddings in Edinburgh and beyond. I’d also love to travel with you wherever you are.

I was so nervous to photograph this wedding! Solveig (the bride) is a fellow wedding and fashion photographer that I got to know after a workshop with the Norwegian Wedding Magazine in 2014. I was also incredibly happy to do it, as both Solveig and Kenneth (the groom) both knew exactly what they wanted with their wedding – to celebrate love with their closest family and friends, party all night long, in style. The perfect recipe for a perfect wedding!

Ok, so DIY reached an entirely new dimension in this Norwegian farm wedding! To mention a few things, the bride designed and sowed all bridesmaid’s dresses, picked berries from their own garden for wine, grew the salad leaves, and gathered field flowers from a nearby field for the bouquets. The groom hunted the moose they served, and brewed the beer, and made sitting groups out of straw from their own fields.

Finding your perfect wedding photoshoot location should be easy and fun, and usually a professional photographer don’t need you to go atop a mountain og swim in the ocean to take good or unique photographs – even though that would be pretty awesome and if you’d want that I’m totally in! Sometimes it’s just about figuring out what you’d like your end product, your photos, should look and feel like. Of course as your photographer I can help you with suggestions, but what’s really important is that you choose a location based on your style and personality as a couple. And if you give it some thought before the day, you’re more likely to be happy with the results because it makes sense to you.

This elegant wedding was my last of the 2015 season, and this time I was a guest too! The groom is a childhood friend of mine, and we even grew up on the same street and went on tons of wonderful hiking trips together with friends in the Norwegian mountains, or just chatting on our way home from school. The bride and groom are both talented musicians, and they played in me and my husbands wedding band in 2012. The following photos is my way of saying thank you!
