Winters in Lapland are undoubtedly special.

The endless white covers the land and the trees. The skies are milky white. The nights are full of color.

The first thing you notice arriving in Lapland is the frozen-ness of it all, the stillness, the quietness.

Let's create together



Booking a photographer who knows the areas well is essential when planning a winter elopement in Lapland. The days are short and cold in the winters there. Therefore, being able to make the most out of the limited daylight is very important.

When you work with me, you can exhale. I’ve got this.

Ice Chapel Wedding at Northern Lights Ranch

If you're planning a pre wedding session in Lapland, I can not recommend Aurora Village Ivalo enough. This place is so rad. Located next to a river (which will be frozen in the winter and you can walk on it), this sky cabin village has its own little reindeer farm.

if you’re looking for a place to get married in Levi, Lapland, then Northern Lights Ranch might be the coolest option. I’ve experienced this place a few weeks ago when photographing Alexandra and Mykhaylo’s wedding and loved it.

My vision is to capture

Inspiring Beauty,



in my images.

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.

Working with me

feels like exhaling.

You've been anticipating this day, putting so much of your time and heart into preparing for it. Can you trust that everything is in place? Can you surrender to presence and give yourself over to fully experience your elopement?

To do so, you need to have unwaivering confidence in the people you have entrusted to carry out your vision. Especially the person tasked to freeze in time every detail of this all important day.

And when you work with me, you can exhale. I've got this.

I place an extraordinary value on my own consistency. I am consistent in my intention to produce art; in my ability to lead when appropriate; in my desire to support you throughout your day, allowing you to be present and immersed in the moments that truly matter.
