meet your photographer

My journey into the world of photography began before the digital era, navigating the nuances of analog cameras and the enchantment of the darkroom. I still remember my first paid job as a photographer; capturing an Alice Cooper concert – a thrilling initiation into the realm of professional photography. That experience ignited a flame that has since fueled my commitment to crafting visual stories that transcend time.

Through years of exploring the globe, teaching skiing in Austria, and pursuing higher education, my camera lay dormant, collecting dust on a shelf. However, the flame of my passion for photography never dimmed. It reignited when I embraced motherhood immediately after completing my Ph.D. in Physiotherapy. No regrets; taking that leap was truly worthwhile!

At Born Wild Photography, my mission is clear: to assist couples in curating truly intentional wedding experiences. Through emotive and artful photographs, I aim to freeze moments that resonate with the depth of your love, creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. 

Photography, for me, is a medium to narrate your story and freeze genuine emotions. It's about capturing those unscripted moments with your nearest and dearest—the wind in your hair, the smiles, the sparkle in your eyes as you gaze at each other.
Hello, I'm Maria

Elopement & Intimate Wedding photographer


I love spending time outdoors, going on small or big adventures together with my family. Outside is our happy place, and I want my children to grow up with a curiosity and passion for nature and being outside. 

The outdoors

When I'm not working, I'm spending all my time with my family. They are my everything! Having children made me braver and I want to teach my children to follow their dreams, even if it goes against the grain, by showing them it's possible!

My family

Since I was a child, I've spent almost every summer here. Hearing the sound of the waves, the smell of the ocean breeze and the warm sand on my skin brings me so much happiness and peace of mind. 

Gotland, Sweden

I am lucky to call this place my home! This place just have to be experienced! The midnight sun and the dramatic scenery with steep mountains and wilderness for miles. The long, cold and dark winters when the northern light dances on the sky. Magic!
