Your wedding is a sensation. Not just because you know how to throw a sensational party. (Though that’s a big part of any wedding!) But the feeling of joy, of romance. The most important people in your life have joined you in this incredible celebration—enjoy every minute of it!
My photos will capture that sensation and help you relive the experience every time you look at them … the cheers when you kiss, the bubbles on your tongue when you toast, the warmth of love you feel all day. I take pride in creating images that pull you back to each incredible moment. I take photos you can feel.
Get a feel for yourself
My couples matter to me. I build a real relationship with you that leads to breathtaking photos. Here’s how.
1. Comfort is the cornerstone of photos that aren’t just good—they resonate with exactly who you are. I help you relax, so soon you’ll forget I’m even there. I can’t tell you how many times I hear from happy couples—Oh, you got that amazing photo and I didn’t even know you were shooting!
2. My couples trust in me. I’m reliable, relaxed, and know how to practice discretion. That trust extends to your photos—I work tirelessly to document your day with authenticity. You know who else I get to trust me? The grooms. Even the guys who swear they don’t like photos, I’ll work with them to make the process easy and fun. (I promise!)
3. I don’t just show up on your wedding day with a camera in hand. I’m a resource for you throughout your wedding planning process. I used my years of experience photographing weddings throughout Sweden, Europe, and beyond to create a comprehensive wedding guide. This printed guide is given exclusively to my couples and is just one of the ways I help keep the process stress-free for you.
4. Dance all night. Laugh deep into your belly. I don’t just hover at the edge snapping photos—I’ll be in it with you, capturing the sort of photos you’ll want to frame on your walls.
5. I have a creative eye for detail and dynamics. My photos move, they spill over with emotion. One of the things I love to create for my couples are double exposures that become one-of-a-kind pieces of art. That's the 2 Brides experience.
The money Details
"We just bought a bottle of champagne, sat back in our hotel bed & looked through all of the pictures. They're absolutely amazing! Thank you for the incredibly talented work you've done for us."— Kate & Edgard
"We hired Isabelle for our wedding and we are so happy we did! The pictures we have are like out of a magazine with a fantastic quality. They are priceless to us. On the day she was reassuring and made us feel certain that the photos would be stunning no matter the weather. It poured down! She did such a brilliant job and we couldn't praise her highly enough, it was perfection, even the rainy pictures!"
A perfect Experience"

It was such a pleasure to meet Isabelle for our engagement photo session. She made us relax and have fun, which showed in the photos. They turned out utterly magical. None of us are particularly comfortable in front of the camera. Yet, Isabelle consistently provided support, guidance, and directed us for the best possible pictures. She has a relaxed, beautiful way of being, which makes you comfortable and enjoy yourself while taking your photos. We give Isabelle our warmest recommendations!

During the summer months—In locations like Stockholm, Sweden, —the light has a beautiful character of softness and warmth. Coupled with stunning nature or architecture, it makes for a mesmerizing color palette that’ll grab you by the heart. Then there’s golden hour, those perfect moments when the sun literally glows. It infuses your photos with a distinct quality. We’ll block out 20-30 minutes or so, just before the sun sets, to create magic together.
My life has taken me around the world and touched on a number of artistic careers in different countries (I once worked in the theater, making masks!) before I landed here. I think that’s why I’m so drawn to couples who’ve also lived a global life.
Today, I’m based in Stockholm. But I’ve been lucky to photograph couples all around Sweden, across Europe, and in the Middle East. I’ve co-written and photographed several books along with many other commercial photography assignments. I have a past as a professional retoucher. But I always end up back with my passion—documenting meaningful stories for couples who cares about connection, family and art.
I have a cosmopolitan background with roots across the globe, and I feel you might too have a mix of cultures weaving the fabric of your past.
I firmly believe that love sees no boundaries, colors or genders. Love is love, no matter what.
More about My story
"My husband and I hired Isabelle for our wedding in Stockholm as we were directly struck by the amazingly beautiful pictures she had taken before. It is a jungle out there with wedding photographers but for us, it was important with natural, bright and romantic pictures. Already after the first call, it felt right with Isabelle. She has a sense of detail, which I think is incredibly important. Professional work right through and through, she's well organized and we felt completely safe during the journey. Her hard work on every detail resulted in amazing wedding pictures that we will be happy with for the rest of our lives. We really would want to recommend Isabelle, 2 Brides Photography to all wedding couples out there!"

When we saw our the wedding photos for the first time, we cried. Thank you Isabelle for these amazing pictures and a stunning slideshow. We watched it at least 10 times. You are so talented! We don't even know how to thank you for the invaluable work you did for us at our wedding!

I will not be able to accommodate splitting the hours. During "downtime", I'm traveling to and/or setting up for the second location, taking establishing venue shots, backing up photos or charging batteries or preparing for the next important moment. So I'm never not doing anything. Plus, I always show up 30 min to an hour early and don't charge extra so while you may not realize that you are getting extra time that aren't being charged for, it’s my way of going above and beyond.
Yes! Although based in Stockholm, I work all over Sweden and worldwide. I have had the privilege of photographing weddings in Iceland, Italy, France, UK, Israel, Austria, Spain, Latvia and Morocco to name a few. Get in touch and I’ll come to you!
