I’m a relaxed guy. The kind of guy that you might want to have around on your wedding day, when everybody else is stressing I’ll be giving you a reassured smile, and be quietly doing my job – capturing all the big and small things that make your wedding day the best day of your life.
Hmm now where to begin. I’m Magnus, was born in Sweden but have lived in Australia pretty much my whole life. I’m married to Bel, who works with me (although these days is more behind-the-scenes creating albums and editing rather than shooting, as we have two gorgeous babies keeping her busy!)
We live on a farm in the Southern Highlands, with Joey our border collie, Jack our Galah, and a gang of chooks, goats, sheep and cows. So it is probably no surprise that my favourite type of weddings to shoot are the sort that are in the country, on private properties, farms, vineyards, that sort of thing. I’m pretty spoilt being a Southern Highlands wedding photographer, living so close to a stack of stunning venues.
I may be relaxed, but don’t let that fool you. I’m also pretty adventurous (and not scared of heights) so it’s not unusual for me to be climbing trees to get just the right shot of you two, or wading through ponds, (and once I even got caught in quicksand, see here). If you are up for a fun, relaxed wedding where there are no forced poses or fake smiles, and your photographer ends up feeling like a mate who you’ve invited as a guest, then I am the photographer for you.
