The year 1984 was very special

It was the year, when Apple introduced first Macintosh. Michael Jordan,  the best player in basketball history was drafted by Chicago Bulls. Ingrid Kristiansen set track world record in the 5,000m at the Bislet Games in Oslo. But the most important thing took place at 26 February - I was born :)

Ok, now, a little bit more seriously

My name is Waldemar Snela and I'm the owner and photographer in Waldemar Snela Fotografering.

Photography came to my life very early, when I was 8 years old I started to take photos by Smena camera.

I have always thought that: "Photography helps people to see".

Now, when I'm a profesionall photographer, I want to show on my photos moments, which normal are very fleeting: tears, which appeared in father eyes, when he saw his daughter for the first time in wedding dress, smile which showed, how happy the groom was, when bride came to the alter. Emotions during marriage vows. Happines, after that.

Moments, which sometimes are very intimate, which are difficult to observe for guests.

Which grandparents will show their grandchildes on photos after 30-40 years of marriage.

I'm always flexible, and open for new experience

Thats why I offer three diffrent packages with some extras, like photobooth for example, which gives possibility to have a lot of fun. I know, that couples are always courious about photos. Thats why I try to send photos to them during next two weeks after wedding. Of course quality for me is very important, so I would rather spend a little bit longer time for postproduction, than to send bad photos.

For me, the most important is "to be" for young couple

That they will feel comfortable. That's why before wedding I meet with them, to talk about their Big Day. To know everything what will happen during wedding. To show them, that I care. At the meeting we sign a contract, so couples know price, and that there are no hidden costs.

In my opinion meeting is very, very important. Thanks to 2-3 hours which I spent with bride and groom they know me better, and also I know something about them. Their expectations, feelings, ideas.

I work in whole Norway

For me to come to Bergen, Trondheim or Trømso is not a problem. Everything to make my customers happy.
