Joseph & Siw

A wedding is a story, made up of shared moments. We aim to capture these moments and all the loved ones that surround you.

1. Humility and courage baked into warmth and beauty. I’m in love with natural light and natural surroundings, which lends it's self to   providing personal expressions. Siw has developed a signature approach to kids and family portraiture that stands alone. 

From the time you’re image is captured to the moment I share it, the passion I share for photography, matched with the joy of being around children is what inspires me to be a photographer. Over the past 5 years my dedication to my craft as a portrait photographer has made me the choice of many clients from around the world.  From New York to Miami and home in Norway my goal is to share the joy of life's great moments, as seen through the eye’s and felt in the hearts of our children.


2. We are husband and wife team, using photography to tell love stories. From the time we capture your image to the moment we share it, the passion we share for photography, is one you will feel from the first meeting and every visit we share together. Our dedication to our craft, has made us the choice of many clients from around the world.  With full time photographers based in Norway and New York City, that have worked and trained from our vision of photography and how it lends itself to events, branding identity and portraiture.  

Having worked for over 15 years as photographers in Miami and NYC, specializing in weddings and events, we have relocated back to Norway in 2016.  As event photographers in the US we have won Bridal Choice Awards for photography 5 years in a row,  placing us in the top 1% in our industry. Having tested partners in NYC has allowed us to continue to work with client in the NY Metro area and often travel back and forth for special event.  For us photography is as much about the connections with our clients as our knowledge of camera's.  We have worked with the Norwegian Church in Miami and NYC for over 10 years, having photographed more Norwegian wedding in the US than any other company, from Norway to America. A journey that has been more of a lifestyle than a job. Siw and I share a combined culture of Norwegian and America.
