Harjot wanted epic scenery to go with his proposal to Kirat. He chose Stockholm and when he found me on Instagram and soon we were planning the whole thing. They wouldn’t arrive in Stockholm until the day before so he was unable to go out and look for himself the location for the proposal. Thankfully he had me. 🙂
He wanted to do the proposal as the sun rises and gave enough light for the photograph. I always ALWAYS love to do sessions at the sunrise or just after. It is such a moment of hope. The new day has started and you get another chance to live. As we are in Sweden, we just never know what the forecast will be. Even if it says that it will be sun, there just might not be and vice versa.
The forecast said no sun, but I wanted Harjot to be prepared because it it would be a sun shining the city hall would be the absolute perfect spot for gorgeous backlight portraits. And it would be early enough for less people around, so we could get the candid photos they wished for.
But, if it wasn’t any sun the perfect spot would be Mariaberget, or Montelius väg, on the opposite side of the water to city hall. being higher up overlooking the city hall, and Riddarfjärden with Riddarholmen and on the other side of City Hall, the Norrmälarstrand is nothing but epic.
How did the proposal do?
There were no sun, so Mariaberget it was!
I was standing on a stairway looking like I was doing landscape photography. Man did I get many birds. Hahha. But then they arrived. And I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!
