About Me

“ Dad, race car driver & Heavy Metal fan ”

Hi I am Fredrik, born and raised in Sweden, I have grown up on metal music, polar winters and ski fields close to the Arctic Circle.

I moved to NZ and Queenstown 17 years ago and have two crazy boys with my wife Laura and have been shooting weddings since then.

I have shot over 1000 weddings by now and can truly say that I have seen pretty much everything that can happen on a wedding day.

I am reliable and consistent. I have faced all conditions and situation. I am cool as a cucumber and will make sure everything flows and it the end you probably won’t even notice I am there.

You can rest assure that you are in safe hands with us.
