Who is Turturduva?

Behind the name Turturduva which basically means lovebird in Swedish, you find me, Isabell N Wedin. I was born and raised in a small town in Skåne, the southern part of Sweden. I have now for some years been living and working in Malmö but I love to travel at every given chance. After I completed my professional degree in photography in 2008, from Brobygrafiska in Sunne, I started my own business. Photography has taken me to many exciting places, and through it I have met many interesting people. I began photographing weddings in earnest in 2009 and I love it.

As an old elite pony rider, I like to perform under pressure, and born under the sign of Gemini I like changeability, which this profession brings. My genuine curiosity for people makes portrait photography a profession that really suits me. But what gives me the greatest drive to photograph weddings is the positive energy it gives me. To be able to be present on that special day when two people manifest and celebrate their love is simply magical.

Since 2014 I am part of www.bröllopstankar.se , a Swedish network for wedding vendors.

 

Why do you call yourself Turturduva?

Because I also photograph fashion, portraits and art photography under the name Isabell N Wedin. I wanted to have a specific name for when I photograph children, maternity photos and weddings. Then I am also a big fan of birds and besides horses they are my favorite animals. For those of you that are curious you find my other website here: www.isabellnwedin.com

 

HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?

I photographed my first wedding in 2007 and since then I have photographed more than 100 weddings. I have experienced so much love through my camera!

 

WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

I use professional Canon cameras, lenses and flashes. I also have with me spare equipment if something should fail to work, so you can be sure that everything will float on without problems during the day.

 

WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOUR WEDDING?

To photograph a wedding is not a walk in the park, it takes experience, quick thinking, nerves, and feel. The pictures are what remains long after the last piece of cake was eaten, so if you care about quality, and wish to feel safe on your wedding day, a professional photographer is an undeniable choice.

 

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDING?

Then I photograph something else! Some see it as a job to be a photographer, for me it is more of a lifestyle. To take pictures makes me genuinely happy and I could never see myself do anything else as a profession. And when I don’t have a camera in my hands I enjoy spending time at flee markets, drinking red wine with friends, watching too many tv-shows, traveling, doing yoga, reading Jane Austen novels and I probalby spend too much time in my bathtub.

 

WHY SHOULD WE CHOOSE YOU AS A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR OUR WEDDING?

I am energetic, personal, passionate, and I love what I do. I care about what I do and it shows in my work. It is of course also important that you like and enjoy my photographic style, which I like to describe as romantic, sincere, bohemian and with a twinkle in the eye.
