I started photography because I absolutely love interacting with people, hearing their incredible stories and helping preserve those stories through photography! My favorite kinds of stories are love stories, so couple's and wedding photography holds a very special place in my heart!
As your wedding photographer I am dedicated to capturing your love for each other in a way that will preserve the way you feel for each other for generations to come! I am committed to capture both the details as well as the big moments.
I strive to put my clients first, and my main goal is to create beautiful images and to make your images and your wedding experience something you’ll look back on with a smile for years to come!
My clients - who I rather see as friends - are important to me and as your photographer I do everything I can to make you comfortable in front of the camera- and even to have fun - and that we end our time together with some incredible pictures! Your job is to enjoy the day, and mine is to capture you and your day beautifully!
When we marry we promise to love our spouse for better or for worse, and as a wedding photographer I get to capture my couples at their very best- on one of the happiest days of their lives. Through my pictures, I tell this story of happiness and joy and preserve it, so when those days of “worse” come around they have these pictures to remind them that “worse” is not forever and that love can prevail.

I believe that the best pictures come out of photographer-client relationships that feel authentic and comfortable instead of stiff, awkward, and impersonal. This is why I find it so important that we get to know each other even before our session!
If you are looking to book me as your wedding photographer we will first get in touch online, and after getting to know each other online, we will determine if our expectations align and if we would be a good match!
After getting in touch, I will send you a little information about myself as well as a short questionnaire to help me get to know you and your fiance and understand your expectations a bit better!
This is the step in the process in which we figure out if we are a perfect match!
Let's be friends! I want to get to know you! I want to know how how you met, what you love about each other and much more!
We're a match! Yay! After meeting online, if we determine that we are a good match, then we will proceed to book your preferred session date!
I will send you an electronic contract for both of us to sign as well as an invoice for you to pay your deposit, which ensures that your date remains reserved!
Once this has been done, Jeanette Merstrand Photography is officially booked as your wedding photographer!
Save the date! After having spoken together in person or via Skype, it's time to book me!
It's time to let the fun begin! I include a complimentary engagement photo shoot in my wedding pricing because I find it so important to work with each other at least once before the wedding to get to know each other and to get comfortable with each other. After your booking, we will schedule an engagement session!
Don't worry about feeling awkward or inexperienced, I will help you through the entire process, and all you have to do is focus on having fun and enjoying yourself, laughing a lot, and I will do the rest!
It might take about 20 minutes to really start feeling comfortable in front of the camera, but after that you will be a pro! Even my most shy and nervous clients have warmed up to the camera quickly and walked away at the end of their session feeling confident!
All my couples get a gift of free engagement pictures, and this is when the fun really starts!
I will send you a copy of a suggested timeline, and we will then go through it together making any adjustments necessary. Having a timeline is such a helpful way to keep your wedding day stress free!
If you don't have a timeline yet, don't worry, I can help you create the perfect timeline to preserve both the natural flow of the day while still making sure we capture your dream wedding portraits and pictures!
Together we will plan your day to make it both your ideal day free from stress, and to make it photographer-friendly so that you will have images of your own that are magazine worthy!
Once we’re a few months away from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding, and at this point we will discuss your wedding timeline!
It's time to relax and enjoy the magic of the day. I will be there either 8 or 10 hours to be sure to capture your entire day!
I work hard to capture the details of the day, the momentous moments, the fun ones, and some of the more intimate and personal ones as well.
My favorite part of the day is capturing the portraits of the newlywed couple! I find that this special time between the couple is so love-filled and beautiful!
After your wedding I will share some of your images in a blog post within a week of the wedding- usually on #weddingwednesday! I like to share my wedding blog post while the excitement from the day is still fresh!
Your wedding day is finally here and the waiting time is over! To ensure that your entire day gets captured I exclusively offer full wedding day coverage!
The day after our photo-shoot, I will post a few of my favorite images from our session together as a sneak-peek to my Facebook page for you and your family and friends to see and within a week your blog post will go up on my page!
Within 4 weeks you will receive an online link per e-mail to the rest of your gallery consisting of carefully selected and edited images for a high resolution download.
I'd suggest sitting down and really enjoying looking through your pictures when you receive them, picking some favourites and having them printed. Pictures serve their greatest purpose when being viewed! If you need suggestions, I'd be happy to help you choose your images for printing or for creating a photobook!
Congratulations! You are now an official JM Bride!
Your gallery! I love delivering my galleries digitally, and you can expect your full gallery within 4 weeks!
"Jeanette is warm-hearted, funny and makes the experience really enjoyable. her pictures are stunning, you just have to take a look at her blog to notice this. She is also very professional and cares about you . . . she captured our wedding memories so beautifully and perfectly!"
diana & Karsten
Jeanette's pictures are absolutely breathtaking! She was able to direct and catch the moments of our day so perfectly and have documented our wedding day in the most beautiful way! I give her the warmest of recommendations!
nadine & Thomas
you only need to take a look at some of her gorgeous shots to see how beautifully she uses natural light, how carefully she chooses her locations and how skillfully she brings the best out of her models.
she is a great professional, reliable and working fast, she is also a wonderful person . . . She will make you spend an hour barely noticing the hard work you both are doing... And that is what makes the difference!

I believe that the best images come out of authentic client-photographer relationships! I want to get to know you, and what makes you and your relationship special! To help capture the best and most authentic images possible on your big day, I offer an engagement photoshoot free of charge included in all of my wedding packages so that we can get to know each other even before your wedding day!
Your wedding consists of much more than the ceremony, and your pictures should reflect that! Your wedding rings, shoes, and invitation suites? The excited and maybe a little nervous look on your face when you get into your dress for the first time? The way he touches your lower back and pulls you in during your first dance? The tears in your eyes as your father gives his speech? All these moments and emotions deserve to be captured, preserved and remembered! This is why I exclusively offer full wedding day coverage of 8 to 10 hours! 8-10 hours gives me enough time to capture the entire day in a way that feels complete and where no details or moment is left out! Your wedding day deserves to be remembered in its unique entirety!
The average Jeanette Merstrand Photography couple invests € 2.350 in a full day of coverage. Contact me to get a link to my complete package and pricing information! I am excited to hear from you!
