Frequently asked questions
Below I’ve gathered some of the most frequently asked questions about my work. If you’d like the same information in Swedish, click here.
What do you do?
I call myself storyteller and artist, with storytelling meaning the documentary photography I do for other people, and artist referencing the embroidery art I make and sell. It is a weird combination (I think it’s safe to say I am the only photographer on earth offering embroidered photographs with my sessions) but working outside the box has only mean good things for me and the people I work with.
Can we book you for a session outside of Turku?
Of course. I’m based in Turku but travel all over Finland for my work. I also take on the odd job outside of Finland, but would not identify as a destination photographer since travel is not my goal, I will always focus on storytelling and for that I don’t need to visit “exotic” locations.
Where my work has taken me
What does your wedding photography services look like?
That depends on the wedding. I prefer joining you from early morning since it’s only by being a part of your entire wedding day that I can capture those small moments that fly by. It’s not only the monumental moments like the ”I do”s that you’ll want to remember, the real magic happens somewhere in between.
How much does a session cost?
I have different packages for all my photography services, so the cost depends on what you book me for.
My goal is to make my work available to as many people as possible and I therefor offer the alternative to pay any session in installments for no extra cost.
Can we meet before the wedding?
I will absolutely want to meet you before your wedding day. When the day finally comes we’ll immediately have to get pretty personal so having the first introduction already done would certainly help. Due to a lot of the couples I work with live outside of Turku, this meeting usually takes place over Skype.
Do we have to keep photography in mind while we plan our day?
Not if you don’t want to. I’m there to document the day as it unfolds, not some made up Pinterest version. I have however picked up a few tips and tricks from all the weddings I’ve documented (over 70 now) that might help you plan an enjoyable and stress free wedding day. I’ve gathered these tips in a pdf that is included in every wedding package. You can read the first half of the pdf if you follow the link: A Meaningful Wedding
What happens after the wedding day?
If I’m with you for the entire day I’ll get home with closer to 4000 photos. I’ll go over these photos multiple times and with quality before quantity in mind I’ll put together a story of about 300 photos including the portraits that you get to pick out yourselves. I then edit all photos and deliver them in a beautiful package with a pair of small surprises. Then it’s up to you to find a good time when you can sit down together and through your wedding story relive that beautiful day that was all yours.
Can we order prints and albums directly from you?
Yes and I hope you will! My photography focuses on atmospheric and natural storytelling which naturally comes through even better when experiences on a matt, heavyweight structured paper in your hand. I therefor hope you consider ordering prints so that your first experience of your wedding story won’t be in front of a computer.
It is also possible to order a linen hard cover book with your story printed on beautiful matt heavy weight. This is a way to make sure your wedding photos will live on and that you actually later in your everyday life will be reminded of your happiest memories.
