..the couple whose paths stretched long before finding love waiting in another corner of the world.

..the couple who's got adventure written on your hearts, and there is no more perfect way to begin your marriage than by vowing forever on distant shores.

..the couple who call the same place home, but your love just spans that wide.

How captivating this thing you have between you.

How eager I am to make art of it.

I'm getting Married




imagery for international couples with a Nordic soul.

In each and every couple I see something unique and enthralling; something that makes my heart say, "this is what life is all about."

I structure my work, in both service and product, around one simple aim: shining light on the love you share and allowing you to experience it in all it's fullness.

What to expect

Maria Hedengren Photography

Hejsan! This is me.



The big, grand adventure of it all.

But more than that, it’s all the varied ways people can encounter one another; the way sounds and smells bind precious moments and commit them to memory; the way different flavours draw us to tables, no matter where we are in the world.

It’s the way that, underneath all the many ways there are to be human, we all still search to love and be loved.

Here, in this symphony of CULTURE and love,

I find my place in the world.

"The quality of your work is just out of this world!

You have it all - the ability to capture the moment, the diligent after-work, delicate colors... and most importantly: the amazing personality, adventurous attitude, and kindness!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

And you are always welcome in our house in Oslo with

your family!"

Alexandra + Greg | Sicily, 2014

My images go beyond capturing beautiful moments. For me,

art is a reflex.

Composition as intuitive as breathing.

I studied photographic art under Francisc Mraz Ferko and I have a Master's degree in Architecture. Combining these two passions with the emotion and story unfolding in front of my camera produces timeless memories which, like your love, transcend time and space.

What to Expect

ARTFULLY modern,

saturated in STORY.

With each release of my camera’s shutter, I have been entrusted with something precious and fleeting: a breath in time, an adventure far grander than you may have realized. And so it is with the utmost care that I reflect back to you - the most beautiful representation of that moment.

My background in photographic art collides with a documentary approach, producing expressive images that honour your unique story.

Meeting Nelli, her impeccable sense of style will instantly strikea you. She is gorgeous, inside and out. And she also has a calm, beautiful soul.

“Who would have thought that a Brazilian marrying a Frenchman would one day have a Hawaiian girl and a Finnish son-in-law? Love has no frontiers and it blossoms anywhere!”
– Luciana, the bride’s mother


“Leo and I wanted to reach out to send a big thank you to you for your amazing work for our wedding.

You are professional, but also

so genuine and approachable.

In particular, we appreciated how structured you were and how much help you provided with your gentle guidance throughout the day. The portrait sessions with you were so much fun - which was such a surprise since we generally really dislike being photographed, but we both felt really comfortable and enjoyed ourselves!

Your no-nonsense attitude and your clear passion for your work are really inspiring so thank you for sharing our day with us!”
