Trash the Dress

Så många månader av det svenska vädret är vinter och / eller åtminstone annorlunda från solsken och blå himmel.

Så jag tänkte att jag skulle inspirera er alla med lite dimmig / molnig och mystisk bröllopsinspiration. Detta var ett stilskott i Bauer-landet, och de av er som inte vet varför och vad Bauer gjorde, snälla google de mystiska berättelserna av mannen i småland. Jag har förmånen att tillbringa tid i hjärtat av hans konsthem. Så jag tänkte att jag skulle göra ett stylat skott, och jag var glad att dimman kom för att göra allt så mycket mer spännande!

Hello everyone!

So, I figured most of you who are planning on getting married might want to read what a wedding photographers 5 best tips for your day are. In the end we all want your day to run as smoothly as possible so that you can focus on each other and get amazing photographs of your day!

Truly, that is what I want for all my couples; for you to get whatever dream wedding you had in mind – and stunning, breathtaking photos to go with it!

 

  • Time. This has been repeated so many times, but I do want to put this first. Have enough space in your BIG day schedule. Why? Because anything can happen, and quite often it does. Transportation for the hair and makeup artist might be delayed, traffic jams, accidents, yes, literally anything could make the time hectic, and you do NOT want that to happen. Also make sure that everyone working on your day knows your schedule. It’s unfortunate if it’s a surprise for the MUA that you are doing a 1 1/2 hour portrait-session before the ceremony. Everyone needs to be informed. And yes, you do need that amount of time for the portrait session if you want the variety of different locations, poses etc. Also make time for lunch, it is no fun to faint on your big day.
  • Lighting is everything – in the church, dinner location and party. Please only use candles or/and white lights. Avoid purple, red or heavy green. I even have it in my contract that it might just be so that I can not deliver photos in color from the party and dance if it’s harsh colored lights. And if you get to pick your church – one that has big windows and lots of white on the walls is likely to give you great light.
  • Ceremony advise! Yes lets talk about that, your guests surely want to see your faces when you say yes, and put your rings on… so stand not too much facing the priest or wedding officiant but instead each other and your guests. With that said I also want to say that please take your time when you put the rings on, so we get to capture the moment on camera – and also, face each other not the off./priest.
  • Colors/patterns. When you talk to your officiant before the wedding and plan your ceremony, do take a few moments to get in sync regarding clothing during your day. Make sure the person understands that they need to be discrete, avoiding big colourful hats, or big patterned clothing. Please do not wear Birkenstock sandals on the couples wedding day. Avoid colourful plastic files, and that goes for the toastmadame/-master too.
  • Let it all out. Don’t think too much of what others think about your day. Feel what you feel, and let it ALL out. Emotions are a part of a wedding day, as is being a bit wild, crazy and/or silly. Enjoy it, have fun and let it show. It is most certainly going to reflect in your photos.

Marstrand’s havshotell, ocean hotel Photo cred Lizzan

Tuesday night and I am still at awe by the weekend wedding I shot at Marstrand, on the west coast of Sweden.

While sitting in the car driving into the small city of Marstrand, it was like a fairytale. So very close to the water, on both sides, and I was screaming my lungs out loud. Maybe you heard me on my instastories Evelyn Wallin

The groom Robert was born and raised in Gothenburg but has spent the last 8 years in Singapore where he also met his bride, Elisabeth.

They got married in Marstrand church, and then took a small steamboat over to Sillsalteriet where the dinner and party was held. Here comes a sneak peek of a day I will late forget.

Open horizon as a backdrop for the bridal portraits is just stunning at Marstrand.

 

A veil and the ocean late afternoon is always a good idea.

 

Carlstens fortress is so beautiful behind the wedding couple.

 

Love this picture. <3

I am sitting in the car on my way to Marstrand to shoot Eli & Robert tomorrow, and with me I have my friend Liselott or Lizzan as she is called (@dreamtalesphotos), and I thought I would share some inspiration photos of hairdoes for your wedding day.

Imagine that! The Swedish nationalmuseum pre-shoot. I am so I N  L O V E !

Next, I am planning an anniversary myself in an artmuseum. The history, the feeling of being part of something oh so much bigger. The ordeals, the troubles, the wars… and Everlasting love. What and who inspired these masters who´s work now is hanging on the walls.. what stories would they tell us if they could…? surely at least some of them would have to do with love, don´t you agree?

Anyway, who would not want to surround yourself with genius and masters of life to shoot yourself with the love of your life? I know I would…

So yesterday I met up with Maria & Joachim who is getting hitched in Stockholm in October. I was just thrilled when they had the idea of National museum in Sthlm as a suggestion as the weather would not turn out perfectly. J is a big fan of history, it was obvious that this location was their thing. And I get really pumped by that… their thing.

 

Yes actually I love cityhall weddings! In Stockholm we are blessed with a cityhall full of corners, arches and greenery not to forget the dramatic water and statues. The building itself is stunning both outdoors and indoors, so it is a perfect spot for weddings.

Todays session was special, because the wedding-couple was the same couple I shot in the archipelago a few weeks ago, and because the priest was from Norway he was not accepted to do a ceremony in Sweden, but being a good friend of the couple they eagerly wanted him to hold the ceremony. They knew this when they booked me so we added today´s session as well to close their amazing wedding-circle together with their kids. Obviously it is not unusual to have kids around for a wedding, but as a wedding-photographer and to focus as much as I did today on family photos was different, but oh so much fun.

And their kids, my god, I want to adopt them all <3

Meeting up with my wedding couples is crucial! I get to meet up and plan the day ahead, and give all the advise I have been taught so far as a weddingphotographer. But also we take some photos, and it is amazing to see how very often they are a tiny bit uneasy – new to a new situation – but the best part is how very fast they often loosen up. A few days ago I met up with Anette & Johan that are getting married in september at the venue Wenngarn slott/castle.

We spent about half an hour with taking some really nice photos and that area is really to die for. Have a look yourself!

 

By the castle is the best spot for upcoming bride Anette

 

Ulriksdals castle is a gorgeous place

That look, you gorgeous bride to be Anette.

 

One can just never have too much hugs.. right?

 

See you both soon Anette & Johan, at Wenngarns slott/castle in Sigtuna!
