You've finally decided it's time to get married! Maybe you are newly engaged or the ring has been on the finger for ten years and now it's finally time. Now you are planning for your wedding to be one that both you and your guests remember for the rest of your life and wish you could experience over and over again. And that is my superpower - to capture the day so that you can experience it several times over.
My photos are meant to last - you should be able to look back on them in 20 or 30 years and feel that you still love them as much as the day they were taken.
I will help you relax during the portrait shoot - no uncomfortable poses. Just you and your special someone cherishing this once-in-a-lifetime moment
Planning a wedding is not done in the blink of an eye. But after photographing over 100 weddings, I have experienced most of them and can share my experience with you.
Choosing your wedding photographer should be one of, if not the most important investment of your wedding day. All you will be left with after all the confetti is out of your hair is each other, your rings and your photos.
You may have already guessed it, but if you haven't I'm going to tell you now, I LOVE WEDDINGS! If I hadn't photographed them, I probably would have planned them (because let's all be honest and admit that I wouldn't have become a make-up artist, even though sometimes I can get a bit upset that they can start hanging out with the bride as early as seven in the morning ). I've photographed weddings in pouring rain, in thirty-five degree heat, in dark churches and at outdoor weddings where the sun has shone - I've simply been there.
Every wedding teaches me something new and nowadays, in addition to capturing weddings in pictures, I can show how to fit the corsage on the jacket, how to google the best way to tie a bow tie and the best way to remove stains from the wedding dress (hello wet wipes!) .
For me, it's about so much more than just wedding photos, although of course it's important to me that you enjoy your photos for many years to come, but also about the feeling and how I make you feel, my goal is always that you should feel relaxed and that I am there to facilitate your big day.

I will be yours for the day! Whether you decide to go for 8 hours of coverage or all night long I will be there to capture all the important bits.We’ll get all the important family photos, loads of candids and special moments throughout the day, some fun bridesmaid shots, groomsmen shots, and- of course- we’ll set some special time aside for those first romantic shots together as newlyweds!
Absolutely, I love meeting all my couples before we book. How else will we know that we are the perfect match? But because of time restraints I stick to meetings on Zoom until we are booked.
Sooner rather than later is always the motto when it comes to booking your wedding photographer. As much as I would like to be at multiple weddings at a time, I still have not figured out the whole cloning process. Most of my couples book between 6-12 months before their wedding day. With that being said, even if you are getting married in a week or two there is always a chance that I am free and you should definitely get in touch.
I am based out of Sigtuna, a small town between Uppsala and Stockholm and most of my wedding couples get married within an hour or two from here (not surprisingly since if you throw a rock in any direction you are more than likely to hit a beautiful castle or two). But with Sweden's largest airport around the corner, a valid passport and a love for traveling, I do venture out.
To secure your wedding date a booking fee of 5000 SEK is required and the remaining balance is due the first weekday after your wedding.
Yes please! A well-fed photographer is a happy photographer and wedding days are long events for us. If I had to venture out from your wedding to search for food, I could be gone for an hour and miss important moments of your wedding day. Since I am vegan I would be most grateful if you would make sure my food is vegan (and yes I do love dessert).
Awesome! I love meeting up with my couples and having a fun time together, creating memories. It is a great way for us to get to know each other before the wedding and to get comfortable in front of the camera.
I don't have a fixed number but typically I deliver 50-80 pictures an hour. This all varies depending on a combination of things like number of locations, guest count, lightning etc.
Short answer: No. The raw files are not something I make available to my clients. This is a standard in the photography industry but I will briefly explain why to clarify. To begin with, viewing the files requires specialized software such as Photoshop or Lightroom, programs which are expensive and therefore usually only owned by professional photographers. This means that to the majority of my clients they are completely inaccessible.
There is also a fair majority are outtakes (blinking, out of focus, poor lighting etc. and look nothing like the final result you see on here), so the few people who can access them tend to find the RAW files an anticlimax anyway. I put a lot of love and magic in postproduction, processing the images for my couples to look the way you expect them to.
If you connect with my work and feel we would be a good match, I'd be honored to be your wedding photographer! Get in touch via the contact form and tell me about your dream wedding. I will check availability for your date and get back to you. Your reservation is complete when you have signed the contract and a paid the retainer.
We took a liking to the nice pictures on your website, and felt that these were the kind of pictures we wanted from our wedding day.
On the wedding day you made us feel relaxed and comfortable. It was so nice that you were so flexible. If someone would ask if they should book you we would say “Book her - she is amazing!"
The best part of all was of course the wedding photography itself. But also the planning before and the work after - when we got to see the pictures and choose thank you cards - was fun. We liked the gallery where we could select images, download and the ability to purchase high quality products.
With Maria you get fantastic pictures. Solid work with the pictures and composition as well as good pre- and post-work.
We are so happy with our engagement photoshoot. That we got to try out how it felt to stand in front of the camera and also feel how you work made us much calmer for that part on the wedding day itself. That you were then with us for so many hours at the wedding made everything feel very comfortable. You were calm, kept track of the situation and guided us nicely through the hours. You were an important person in the wedding team!
After looking around a bit on different photography websites, we fell in love with your work! Absolutely fantastic pictures and a wonderful presentation of yourself. Felt like you were the one who suited us. Our whole journey with you was amazing from start to finish! The pictures taken a year before the wedding made us feel very safe with our choice of wedding photographer. You have really done everything and more! We not only got very nice pictures and video, we got so much more! You really capture the best of the best! Wow!
It was important for us to find a person who suited us and gave us a calm and secure feeling. On the wedding day, you made us feel relaxed and it felt good to be reminded to feel the butterflies in our stomach even with all the stress that comes with the wedding day. You are both a fantastic photographer who can find such beautiful environments but also you are a person who is easy to work with and quickly understood what we were looking for even when we didn't know ourselves.
