Photojournalism meets art – edited with a colourful and happy vibe
Like 99% of other wedding photographers I stumbled into it by accident only to fall in love with it. 100 weddings and elopements later I’m still shooting and enjoying it more than ever.
In my artistic portraits I am really inspired by Wes Anderson’s movies; he manages to create amazing frames.
I love to incorporate Copenhagen’s many buildings and architecture into my work and make a simple wall a work of art. When it comes to documenting the rest of the day I rely heavily on my gut feeling and reflexes, along with my ninja-skills, to blend in and capture candid moments in the most natural way possible!
Copenhagen. Copenhagen offers endless possibilities and always surprises me.
My favourite photo of myself was shot in Central America.
I can’t remember if it was Panama or Nicaragua and I can’t remember who took it. I travelled solo for three months and met lots of cool people along the way.
The photo is my favourite because it’s the photo that made my girlfriend swipe right 5 years ago when she encountered my Tinder profile. So it’s a photo that changed my life forever.
I believe portraits should be fun so I take it very casually; get them talking, moving, laughing.
When you connect and talk both parties relax and the portrait session transforms from something awkward to something fun and memorable – and that’s where the magic happens.
I don’t think there’s such a thing as a perfect wedding portrait, at least no rules or formula.
The perfect wedding portrait will be the one that the couple identifies with the most.
It may be the beautiful artistic portrait or the in-between shot where the couple are laughing their asses off and enjoying themselves.
Well, as I live in Copenhagen I’m already living in my dream location.
If I could choose to go anywhere else and shoot a wedding, I don’t know.
I’d love to document a Jewish wedding at some point.
The location wouldn’t matter, but I really want to experience a Hora at some point in my life!
I love to travel, make great food and enjoy the company of my friends and family.
I think the most important thing is to make friends in the industry.
Socialise with other wedding photographers and great friendships will form – business will flourish as well.
