HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?
This is my fifth year doing full-time wedding photography and so far i have photographed about 160 weddings.

YOUR IMAGES HAVE AN ANALOG LOOK. DO YOU SHOOT FILM?
My images are edited with film simulating filters/presets to give them an analog feel – i just love the
look & feel of real film. However i prefer to shoot digital, since i consider myself a “fast” acting photographer.
Fast – not in terms of excessive amounts of rapid clicks – but in reacting to the moment, moving around quickly
in fast changing light situations – something i would not feel comfortable doing while using the slower
process of film cameras.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
Artistic. Natural. Dreamy. Simple.

WHAT’S IN YOUR CAMERA BAG.
2 Canon 5 DIII and several L series prime lenses.

DO YOU BRING A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
About 90 % of the weddings in my portfolio it was myself only photographing. If the wedding party is larger, i advise to bring a second photographer with me.

DO YOU EDIT ALL THE IMAGES?
Yes i will be the one, editing all of the images in a massive labor of love.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I BOOK?
I do book up to 12-18 months in advance, so please do not hesitate to inquire early for your 2017 wedding.
A few dates can be booked quite spontanious, up to 2-3 months in advance.

HOW CAN I BOOK?
Please note that i have a “first come first serve” policy. Your date is secured, once your deposit is received.

I REALLY LOVE MY PHOTOS. HOW CAN I BEST EXPRESS MY HAPPINESS?
