Hey I'm Jack! I'm an international wedding photographer and occasional Jesus impersonator. 

My photography doesn’t look like the bright stuff of glossy magazines, nor the dark style of "alternative" photographers. Just real moments in a natural style, to help you keep those memories for a lifetime. Less posing and more fun, take away the boring bits and add some rock & roll instead. 

Since I started I have shot more than 100 weddings, from small elopements of 2 to big Indian parties. everywhere from Swedish castles to Australian wineries. I know how to be a calming addition to the day and a fun addition to the night. 

Pricing starts at £2,150 / 2.500€ for Saturdays in peak season. I offer discounts for off-season, small weddings, and weekday weddings. 

Say Ciao

Nomad at heart

I have shot everywhere in Europe and as far away as Australia & Mexico.
I love to explore and discover new places.


How did I get there?


One evening, in Scotland, after shooting for 15 hours I was in a room witnessing the Hindu ritual of the groom taking the bride from her parents’ home, to symbolise the start of a new family.

Everybody started crying.

The bride, her parents, cousins, the little kids and the old grandparents. Even Satpal, behind his video camera. My eyes started getting wet, it was just impossible not to. That was the first time I had tears in my eyes in quite a long time. That is when I knew I wanted to become a wedding photographer. 

I felt like that moment was the centre of the universe, and nowhere else was more important.

I was born in the region of Parmesan cheese in Italy. I left for Scotland at the age of 18 where I studied a bit of Psychology before starting to work as a photographer. After 4 years in Edinburgh, I moved to London where I attended a world class workshop, and started filling up my summers with shoots all over Europe.

In 2015 I moved to Barcelona for a while before moving to Melbourne in the fall, as Barcelona was not far enough from London. It was amazing to fulfil my dream of skipping a winter by relocating to the southern hemisphere. 

In 2016 I shot in 9 European countries and travelled through a total of 15 including Australia, New Zealand & Indonesia.

2017 was an adventure filled year that took me to Burning Man and my first wedding in Australia, eventually moving back to Barcelona.

in 2018 I met a wonderful Danish girl at a Burning Man regional event. I quickly moved to Denmark within three months.

Every year I feel like it has been the best year ever. And in 2019 I was also asked to be a wedding celebrant for the first time.

2020 has been cancelled. I was meant to shoot everywhere from France to Sri Lanka, and everything got cancelled or postponed.. 

in 2022 I started my new business focused on shooting more local weddings in Copenhagen, check it out at www.firbenphoto.com 


How I shoot

I think you should enjoy your wedding first of all and I would never "command & control", but let the day unfold and capture great moments as they happen. 

I am a story teller, not a director

I never ask anyone to "do it again", I would rather help you having a great time and then capture those genuine moments. 

I mostly shoot from the hip to be even more discreet. The cameras I shoot with are very small and hardly noticeable. I am not the type to lift a half meter long cannon-lens into someone's face. 

When it is time to party I like to get involved and blend in, raise the energy in the room and let my hair down. Oh and see what happens if you play me some AC/DC
