Svenja Petersen Photography


Hi there! Happy you stopped by! All my life I knew I wanted to be a photographer and traveling had to be part of it. Years ago it was my dream to become a fashion photographer, but after experiencing Love and all what comes with it, I knew I wanted to be a wedding photographer. And I am truly thankful that I’m able to do so. 

My friends call me Sven or #happySvennie (feel free to call me that!) It's a Scandinavian name but I am a Dutch girl who grew up in a small town in the Netherlands. Now I live in Innsbruck, they say it's one of the biggest city's in Austria (it's not really though haha) Everyone here loves nature, snow and the winter season as much as I do. I'm a tea drinker, chatty person, lover of old music, romanticist and crazy for people who are following their dreams. One of my favorite things to do is shamelessly dance with my friends and play the guitar. Yes, I sing Tina Turner very loud. But most importantly is that I'm free to be who I am in my work, and because of that I met so many beautiful people along the way. Hopefully you will be one of them.

I am here to help wherever I can. Let me capture all those memories for you, the ones that will go on from generation to generation.


Let me tell you something ...


The winter season is probably my most favorite time of the year! The evening lights, snow, Christmas, hot choco and tea's at the fireplace and don't forget all that warm fuzzy clothing!

Also, skiing is one of my fav hobby's and Après-ski is just TOO much fun ;-)


I love everything about those warm summer nights where I can wear my colorful dresses (I have so many, oops!) and run around barefoot all day!


This is my mom and she's living in Spain. So we celebrate summers in the sun and the snowy winters in Austria!


The fact that I can work from home or any other place, and that I'm able to travel for weddings is the biggest dream come true!

Are you planning a destination wedding? Count me in!!

And the most important thing you should know about me... I'm a BIG family person and I believe this is most important in life. Make memories together and capture all those moments!

I am here to help wherever I can. Let me capture all those memories for you, the ones that will go on from generation to generation. The big and small moments. But mostly just the way you are and the way you guys love each other.

If you're not from the Netherlands or Austria and you are interested in my photography, have a look at my Investment page for more information. I've been to several countries to photograph destination weddings, which was amazing!! So feel free to contact me about any questions you have on my services. Can’t wait to chat and meet you in person. 

Ps. I am VERY interested in the details about your wedding, your ceremony & reception venues, your vision, your dress, your colors and anything else you would like to share with me.
