Investing in your memories

Capturing your LIFE with Hyggelig Photography means having professional photographs as a record of your most precious WOW moments or even just celebrating your normal day to to day as a family.

Hyggelig Photography LOVE weddings. Like its kind of ridiculous how much Janet and her crew enjoy documenting the story of your day. To see you all fancied up, spending an amazing day with your nearest and dearest, and most of all marrying that main squeeze of yours, we want to capture it all! For the most part we want you to ignore that we're there, but at "just" the right moments we'll join in the fun. Its about your day being filled to the BRIM with memories and having the images afterwards to remember them by. 

Portrait sessions from $200
Birth photography packages from $1250 
& Wedding packages from $3700

I am so lucky to have had Janet shoot my wedding day. Her photos really capture the feelings in each moment, so much so that I didn't need a videographer because Janet's photos tell the whole story. I can't stop looking at all my photos, they are all so beautiful and natural! She is so lovely to deal with, I can't thank her enough for being such an important part of my big day and I highly recommend her! 

Cara Plonsker

Janet and the team were beyond amazing!
Not only on our wedding day but all the planning leading up to the big day, from the moment we met Janet we knew she was a perfect fit for what we wanted. Janet, Manda and Mandy made the day so much fun and we were honestly sad to say goodbye at the end of the night.
Cannot wait for our next special occasion to get them back again.
Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a photographer

Sean and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible photos you took on our wedding day. From the Engagement shoot to the pre-wedding location scout to guiding us on the day, your calming manner and ability to incorporate our ideas will be forever cherished.  A special thanks also goes to Manda, the most amazing assistant who also went above and beyond to make our day so special! 
You two are incredible artists and we can't thank you or reccomend you enough.  With many thanks,
