As 2016 is coming to an end, it's time to look back on what an amazing year this has been for me and my photography business. 2016 has been the year where I decided to really focus on weddings, I stepped up my marketing and took some big steps in my photography (at least I like to think so:).
A couple months ago, Joseph and Jia Yan contacted me looking for a photographer for their pre wedding photoshoot in Lofoten. If you haven't heard about Lofoten, you will want to go after seeing these pics. Lotofen is a bunch of epic islands in Northern Norway with the most insane mountains you've ever seen.
I had the pleasure of taking pictures in Ingvild and Lars Kristians wedding earlier this summer. Ingvild really wanted some wedding portraits by the ocean, but unfortunately there wasn't enough time to drive to the sea on their wedding day. I figured there's an easy solution for that, and a couple weeks later we met up for this beautiful windy sunset shoot in Krogshavn, Langesund.
Ingvild and Lars Kristian had really done an amazing job of turning this old abandoned industrial building into a beautiful ceremony location. It was such a fun, and also a bit difficult location to photograph. There wasn't much light available, but my trusty Fuji X-Pro2's really did an amazing job! Just love those cameras!
Therese and Thomas are two amazing people I've had the pleasure of knowing for many years now. So when they said they were getting married and wanted me to be their photographer I was instantly excited. I did their engagement photos a while back, which was a super fun evening in the woods, have a looky here!
Bjørg Margrethe and Marius' wedding was such a pleasure to be a part of! So full of joy and love and great food :) After a beautiful ceremony we headed out to a rocky beach called Saltstein and the woods surrounding to shoot some portraits. We even found a good ol' tree stump that had been washed on shore. A fun element for some of the pictures of this beautiful bride and groom. Make sure to take an extra look at Bjørg Margrethes extraordinary lovely tailormade wedding dress!
Alexander and Natalia got married last year in Natalias home country Georgia. This summer they came to Norway to throw a wedding party and to take some stunning wedding pictures in the beautiful Norwegian summer light.
I love photographing my friends' weddings, it's a blessing to be able to document this day for the people you love. Marthine and Andreas got married in an old beautiful stone church, and I'd found a really cool location for their portraits not far from the church. It's pretty much an old man's small house and garden, with beautiful cherry trees and these quirky old greenhouse frames standing around. Also, you gotta love that old school beetle convertible right?
These amazing people got married on a sunny afternoon in Oslo. Christian has been in the navy, hence his kickass suit/attire. We were blessed with good weather and even got time to take Christians bike for a little spin, which resulted in some fun/different shots. We also walked across Frognerparken and spent some time making some beautiful portraits. The dinner & party was held at Grefsenkollen, an amazing venue overseeing all of Oslo.
An amazing wedding in my hometown of Skien, Norway. We were blessed with awesome weather, and managed to hit up several amazing locations in our short time of taking portraits. I love experimenting with different backgrounds and compositions, and this couple was up for the task. The result is a couple of really fun shots! Scroll through and take a look for yourself :)
