Spiral Photographic - Photography Partner

Hi, I'm Elisabeth and I'm the photographer behind Spirel Photographic. I love seeing people happy, excited, in love, nervous and teary and being there to catch those moments is even better!

Your wedding is an important step, it marks the start of your journey together in marriage and it is wonderful to be able to look back on such a day with joy, gratitude and thankfulness. It is my job to make sure you have photographs to admire, display and share as well as look back on for many years to come.

Your cake will get eaten, your flowers will wilt and your dress will most likely get a little dirty but once the day is all over you will have your new spouse, your memories and your photographs. Please feel free to introduce yourself and maybe we can meet over coffee and discuses your special day!
