I cannot imagine a morning without my coffee and a summer without being at the west coast of Denmark. I am tall and most of the time I have long hair and a big beard. And I am the father of two girls, Alma and Ester, who are the greatest story of my life. I live in the middle of Denmark and I consider myself very lucky to be doing what I do.

I love that my job is all about love. I’m not a sobbing romantic, but the prerequisite for the people who hire me, is love. Come on, how goddamn awesome is that. When I work, I am always surrounded by happy people.

 

Hi! I'm KIM

(fun) Facts

I'm not much for rules and boxes. Especially the ones, where some people try to tell other people how to live their lives and do their things.

Not quite sure, but I'm around 15 in this photo and me and my friend might just have seen a Stallone film or something... I keep this image on our refrigerator door, just as a reminder not to take ourselves too serious...

When my youngest daughter was baptised, I came to the church bare feet. Not to make a statement or rebel against anything, but just because that was what I felt like. It was close to our home, it was summer and I was in my shorts. And when it was time to go, I went as I was. I just wanted to be me. There were comments. My mother was shaking her head. And she was sure the priest was gonna tell me off.
But the priest loved it. Her words: "I wish everybody would dare to come in their bare feet, not worry so much about the norm and just have courage to be themselves."
And that is what it is all about. Being who we are. Always be kind and respectful. But be who you are. Anyways, that's me and that is what you get... 

WHO I AM...

I like chocolate, I really like chocolate

'Casablanca' and 'Along came Polly' are two of my favorite movies

I don't smoke anymore, but I absolutely don't mind if others do

When I drink white wine, I prefer Pinot Gris

I'm very fond of going to the movies alone

I love books, but I always get very tired, when I go to the library

After photographing big, traditional weddings for many years, I decided to move more in the direction of smaller weddings and elopements. I want people to realise, that they are not bound by rules or traditions, if they don't want to be. And that - as long as they are respectful to others - they can be and do whatever they want to. 

I had a very safe childhood. And that safety was very important for my parents to pass on to me as a value, because they grew up without that. But it also meant, that I was brought up to think that we all had to aim for the safe choices in career and lifestyle. As a result everything was in boxes and you don't go outside the boxes. People where in boxes. Behaviour and beliefs where in boxes. Everything was supposed to look a specific way. At least on the surface. Don't get me wrong, I am very grateful to the childhood my parents gave me. But I don't remember talking about dreams. There was never any talk about doing what you love. I don't remember talking about being outside the box.

So, in response to that perhaps, a lot of my grown up life has been kind of rootless. Not because I wanted to rebel, I just felt uncomfortable, when I sensed being too much in a box. 

And in regards to weddings. While big weddings are awesome too and absolutely the right choice for some, I have met quite many couples, who believe it is what they are supposed to do. Even if they are not feeling it. I want to show them that there is an alternative.  

The 'production vibe' of bigger weddings just don't sit well with me. I work better with a laid back approach, where the focus is on the connection between you two love birds and maybe the ones closest to you. Doing stuff you really enjoy doing.

How come I shoot elopements and smaller weddings as my main thing?

It has to be fun
