Wedding photographer in Norway
I travelled during the summer to photograph a wedding in southern Norway. It was in the south western city of Kristiansand. Easily accessible by ferry from the northern tip of Denmark.
I used the occasion as a short holiday visiting some of the beaches of Denmark. It was very enjoyable. The Danish beaches are very clean and it is possible to drive a car on to the beach.
There were blue skies and it was hot on the day of the wedding. It was very dark inside the church. I was very grateful for my Nikon D850 camera.
A wedding in Norway is different than in Switzerland where people are officially married by an official in the registry office (Zivilstandtamt). Please read my notes on a Swiss wedding.
I had to be extra careful when taking pictures. I didn’t want to disturb the service with the clicking noise from my camera. Many photographers have had problems in churches. Mostly hobby photographers showing no respect. I’m thinking about uncles, aunties and friends with a new camera. They keep clicking away in the hope of getting a couple of good pictures. It’s called “spray and pray”.
Taking a picture is only part of the job. I spend several hours afterwards working on the images in Adobe Photoshop.I like to deliver the images within 3 days. I only offer the basic editing (colour, brightness, contrast etc.). When asked, I remove annoying features like fences.
