say NO to cringeworthy posing and forced smiles.

say yes to a comfortable photography experience resulting in awesome albums full of meaningful moments.

I’m Ingrid, and I am a down to earth wedding and family photographer based in Bunbury WA.

Let me tell you about my approach to wedding & portrait photography

When it comes to documenting people and their stories I truly believe that a fun, comfortable and relaxed experience is the key behind great images.

I like to keep things super simple and natural. I prefer to document connection as opposed to perfectly posed portraits. Together we will chase down the most amazeballs light to create honest images featuring nothing but natural expressions.

 

So what does my ideal client look like?

My ideal client is someone who is positive and adventurous – who’s not afraid to get a little bit of dirt on their shoes and someone who dare to be different. I photograph real every day people, who appreciate the simple things in life.

 

I’m based in Bunbury, but available pretty much anywhere.

As most photographers I love to explore new places and certainly don’t mind hitting the road (or the air) to come photograph you at your destination. I definitely prefer to shoot in a setting familiar and meaningful to you – as it ads that little extra layer of authenticity to the images.

So if you’re not in Bunbury yourself, It doesn’t mean we can’t make it happen! You’ll often find me down south Busselton, Dunsborough and Margaret River way, as well as up in Perth.


 

So, who am I, why is my last name so damn hard to pronounce, and how did I get started with photography?

I was born and raised in Northern Norway. Mother Nature was originally what sparked my interest in photography. I mean, how can you not get involved in landscape photography when you grow up near places like this:

I have always loved capturing candids of people too, but I guess I was always a bit too shy to make it into a thing. Weddings was definitely never on my radar  – not until I photograph my first wedding for a friend in 2015. After that – weddings became my new favourite thing…
