Where are you based?
I live on the small island Aeroe in the South of Denmark.
Do you travel for weddings and other photography assignments?
I have travelled all over Denmark, Europe and beyond for weddings and photoshoots for several years now (including Texas, Norway, Portugal, Italy, and France), but as of 2017 my focus will be on elopements and intimate weddings here on Aeroe island. I will, however, allow myself time for 2 bookings abroad each year, so if something truly unique and exciting comes along I will travel wherever that job takes me.
Can we meet in person before our wedding day?
Since 99% of my clients are international couples who travel from far away, I very rarely get to meet them before their wedding day. But I share alot about myself on my website, blogs and instagram, so by the time the wedding day comes around, my couples feel like they know me even though we haven't met face to face. If you are planning a more elaborate day, I recommend we set up a skype session a few weeks before your wedding day :)
Do you work with an assistant shooter?
No, I prefer working alone. As I prefer to document elopements and smaller weddings, I feel that one photographer is enough to tell the story of the day. During my 8 years in business and more than 200 wedding days covered, I have photographed all of them on my own and am very comfortable doing so.
Do you take formal family photos?
Yes, of course. I definitely prefer capturing your day in a photojournalistic way, but I also understand that it may be rare to have all your loved ones gathered in one place and it is a moment to remember.
How many photos will we get?
This of course depends primarily on how much time you book me for. Secondly, it depends on weather, light, and season, your plans for the day and how much is going on, as well as your personalities and dynamic as a couple (the more adventurous and free-spirited you are, and the more relaxed you feel in front of the camera, the more photos we can create together). But you can expect around 50 edited images per hour of shooting.
When and how do we receive our photos?
This depends on the time of year and my travel schedule. For elopements I am usually able to deliver your images within 2 weeks, and much faster in October-April. For more elaborate wedding days delivery time is within 4 weeks. You will receive your high res images as digital files in an online gallery where they will be safely stored for 10 years. From there you can easily share your favourites with family and friends around the world and download them to your own harddrive. You will receive an email from me with instructions as well as a direct link from the gallery as soon as it is ready. But it is really straighforward and most of my clients find it super easy to use
If you order a book, production time is about 8-12 weeks once the page design is finished.
Can we buy or see the RAW files/unedited images that were not selected for our final gallery?
Sorry, but no. Curating the final collection of images that best tell your story is part of what I do. The only ones that don't make the cut are things like blinks/unfortunate facial expressions, duplicate images, exposure "errors" etc. Images that - believe me - you don't want to see anyway ;-)
Can we give you a list of moments we want captured and a link to a Pinterest board with beautiful wedding portraits we love?
Sorry, but no. I love to get to know you, and for you to tell me as much about your wedding day as possible, objects that have special meaning to you, people who you are particularly close to, etc. But I do not work from a shot-list as I believe your day is a one-of-a-kind experience and I want to capture that as it unfolds. You are unique people with a unique chemistry and personality, and that is what I want to portray for you. I am not interested in re-creating other people's moments or other photographers' work :)
Can you photoshop me younger/thinner/prettier?
No, I am all about keeping it authentic, so aside from very small corrections (like a zit or injury) I think people are beautiful just as they are :) I prefer working with couples who embrace their unique "imperfections" and the unplanned moments of their day
