Second Time Lucky – David & Ingrid’s Redo Portraits

“David, an Aussie living in London, met Norwegian Ingrid on a trip to Norway through friends” photographer Ed began. “They hit it off straight away and had a long distance relationship for a while until Ingrid decided to move over to London. They both share a passion for music. Dave is a guitarist and music director and Ingrid is still studying, but sings. One thing led to another and they got married in July 2008 in Ingrid’s home town Stavanger, in Norway. It was a fantastic wedding with people from London, Norway and Australia. However, one thing went badly wrong… their photographer lost their entire set of photos (their photographer was not me by the way!) due to a hard disk issue. Ingrid was naturally devastated!”

“This summer Ingrid finally got round to bringing her dress over from Norway to London and asked me if I could redo some wedding photos for them… In Norway it is tradition to send guests a thank you card with a photo of the day – Ingrid has been waiting to get some photos done before she can do this!”


This shoot took place at various locations around Surrey, UK (I didn’t even think you could get light like this in the UK!)

Huge thanks to David & Ingrid and to their ‘save the day’ photographer Ed for sharing these gorgeous shots with us today

    I just love his style, and he has some beautiful photos on his site.
