We love "love" and are wildly passionate about embracing the greater outdoors. Our couples share our passion, are MADLY in love, and usually have some real epic venues/backdrops for their ceremonies to match their full story. Whether you prefer to elope into the deep wilderness, high up in the mountains, or have a more traditional ceremony at your favorite location, we would be honored to document the beginning of something that's so beautiful and tell your story in a real and honest way. We live to capture all the laughter, tears of joy, and those sweet touches so you can treasure those moments for generations to come.
We’re Rob and M (or Robert and Marie-Louise if you want to be really formal), the couple behind VILD Photography. The word “vild” is actually Swedish for "wild," which pretty much sums us up (in the best of ways, with M being from Sweden and all) - wildly adventurous, wildly fun, wildly in love.
VILD was ultimately born to be something different than your typical wedding and engagement photography. From the places we go to the couples we meet, we always try to embrace their wild love and the grand wilderness that surrounds us because, ultimately, that is what inspires us the most.
VILD is truly a marriage between the two of us and would not be the same without one of us. Rob is the main photographer as he has a more creative and artistic mindset as well as more camera-knowledge. He will handle everything that is related to our gear and your images. M is more business-minded and will handle communication, planning, and everything that's business-related. That's simply how our brains are wired and how we work best.
On a wedding day, you will get the best of us both. Rob will focus on all the "must-have-moments" - making sure that you are always in the best light, angle, and so on. His images fill the majority of your gallery. As a bonus, you will have M there to smoothly handle communication between other vendors, your guests, and family members. She makes sure we stay on track, not missing anything while Rob can focus on one thing and one thing only - to capture your day in the best way possible. Still one of M's favorite things is to help capture all the fun candid moments during your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. She is also a big fan of your details and decorations! That is when we will both have cameras in our hands and photograph at the same time.
Rob and M are one of the most talented, efficient and professional photography teams my husband and I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I deal with a vast amount of photographers in my line of work, and I have never seen such honest beauty in the detail of the moments that these two capture. THEY ARE TRUE ARTISTS. Not to mention how well they managed time as well as the versatility in all the different shots. They took the stress off of us by having a schedule of events of where and when requested shots would take place, so we never had to worry about missing out on a moment. Like I said I am truly their #1 fan because they were an absolute dream to work with and the quality of their photos really speak for themselves.
My husband and I had the opportunity to work with Rob and M three times in the past year and have loved every encounter. We did our engagement session, wedding, and post-wedding photography with them. They instantly put us at ease in front of the camera and made our engagement shoot fun. It was like we were hanging out with our friends, but we got some great shots out of it! Our wedding day they showed us even more so what a great team they are. Rob caught most of the shots, while M smoothly brought everyone together. And that’s not to say M didn’t get some great shots. When we got our wedding photos back we were surprised at some of the shots because we didn’t even realize she was there! They weren’t only amazing to work with, but our images are WOW WOW WOW! It is so hard to describe just how much we love our images. Our images are true quality. Rob and M are the full package! They are kind, fun, quick to respond when contacted, and provide beautiful memories for years to come. I wouldn’t just recommend them to everyone I know, I would urge them to use this great photography dream team! They are wonderful!
Rob and M are simply the best!! They were incredibly caring, communicative, detail-oriented and TALENTED! They are amazing people who are so good and what they do and put so much care into the process and their couples. We were lucky enough to work with them this summer. We didn't want the photo-taking to be a focal point but of course still wanted some great pictures to remember the day. They did a fantastic job of capturing the day as it happened, authentically, and making us feel at ease the entire time. Many of our friends and family told us our wedding photos were some of the best they had ever seen. They couldn't have captured the people or the nature/venue better. Best decision ever choosing Rob and M!!
Robert and M were stellar! They were able to squeeze us in for an engagement shoot last October for our website. From then on they were clear, communicative and full of great advice and expertise about what to generally expect for photo timelines, family wrangling, and everything in between. On the day of, they were a calm and collected presence which was very helpful for the whole wedding party. And best of all, their photos are STUNNING. Not only do we look so happy in our portraits and candids, but our guests are pleased with the wonderful photos of them, as well. We have truly beautiful photos to remember this day of our lives. I highly recommend this great team.
I chose VILD Photography to help me capture a surprise engagement proposal in Tahoe and I cannot say enough good things about my experience! Marie-Louise (M) was incredibly helpful all the way through the process, quick to respond to questions, and even gave me suggestions on the best times and areas to pop the question. I had to coordinate the surprise proposal from Colorado, but the communication and coordination was really easy with VILD. When the day came, I was incredibly nervous that I would tip my fiance off if she saw photographers on the beach. M and her husband did a phenomenal job of "hiding in plain sight", which was really important to me. They caught the big moment with some spectacular shots! The photos turned out amazing - both M and her husband found spots with incredible lighting, made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and were really creative with their shots that led to a wide variety of options for us to choose from. On top of that, they turned around a few of them for us within a few hours that we could share - really above and beyond the stuff that makes all the difference. I could not be happier with my experience and would HIGHLY recommend VILD photography!
