My name is Kristjan Løk, I am 28 years old and I live in Holbæk. For a living I fight the black boards as a teacher at Midtsjællands Efterskole, where I teach the subjects global citizens and social sciences. I spend most of my freetime photographing, both analogue and digital. Besides shooting wedding pictures I also find great joy in portraits and pictures of the city. Here I find my inspiration for my documentary angle on wedding photography. When not found at a coffee bar or a kebab shop visiting my old hood Nørrebro, I’m probably hanging out with my son and girlfriend.

For five years now I’ve been doing wedding photography and I’m still very ecstatic about it! It’s a privilege that my work is photographing such a meaningful day for a couple. As sincere and spontaneous smiles as wedding couples wear on their lips are rare to come by in your everyday life – so the big day is associated with happiness and excitement.

With my images I try to tell a story. A story, that differs from the others. A story, that you recognize yourself in. A story, in which the atmosphere and feeling from the day will be captured. A story – your story. That’s why the most essential thing for me is that the images I shoot at your wedding will show who you are as people – and not necessarily be fashion pictures for Euroman, Elle or Teen Vogue.
