more about me

What is documentary wedding photography?

I aim to photograph you and your loved ones in the essence of happiness and celebration throughout the day. I observe and capture those precious seconds and minutes naturally as they happened, while you enjoy this wonderful moment in time.

I won’t ask you or your guests to pose or to put on a smile, instead your focus is on the day as it unrolls with passion and joy in every each instant.

With documentary wedding photography, I’ll catch those precious moments before they’re lost forever.

The images will be evocative, full of expression and emotions—from those poignant images of you and your partner to those fleeting glimpses of guests interacting with one another.

Kind words

“I would absolutely recommend Erik to anyone interested in hiring a professional photographer who is friendly, charismatic and great at what he does! I love that he prioritizes to create that bond between him and his clients before his session.

We even recommended him to our friends and they were beyond happy with his service. I believe anyone can take a nice picture, what is important is the vibe and connection you have with the photographer.

So if you’re looking for a photographer who is patient, fun and professional, someone who can not only take amazing pictures but also become a friend and hire for future events; then I highly recommend Erik!”

Authentic wedding photography

A documentary wedding photographer, also called a reportage wedding photographer, is one who has a critical eye and watches closely for the story to unfold.
This is a form of visual, authentic storytelling. You can expect natural images that tell the entire story of your special day for years to come.
