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!

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!
See you both soon Anette & Johan, at Wenngarns slott/castle in Sigtuna!
Finally I got to return to my second home, Gotland, and I know it is suppose to be thanks to vacation. However I have managed to fill our days with photo sessions both in corporate spirit and family sessions. Not to forget I did also return to Stockholm and Uppsala to shoot Ingela and Chris wedding at Vasaborgen and the orangery in the botanical garden of Uppsala. It was stunning, and I can´t wait to show you the magic of their day. But that is another blogpost.
Let me now show you some of the magic of Gotland.
Blue Lagoon is a gem that you don´t want to miss! Ps. Get there really early and it will be pure MAGIC.
This also is a place on the northern part of the west coast, we got stunning sunset light, and guess who got the camera switched on! Yes me.
And then comes my favorite place in this world, it is called Norsta Auren, up northern Fårö. It´s a big dream of mine to shoot a wedding here one day…. *hint hint*
So today I booked another ten hour wedding in autumn 2019! I can not wait for this season to start – and so far it looks as if my season will start at my absolute favourite place.. In the magical island of Gotland.
Did you know that this island is in zone 1, which means that anything can grow here… They have palm trees, walnut trees, and almost anything other exotic fruit or flower. Also the island has beaches covered with lime rocks and a fauna that is exquisite.
So names of the places interesting.. I would say they are so many it would be a looong list but okay I will give it a try, check these places out!
Anywhere on Fårö
Outdoor ceremony at Ekstacoast
Why not by any of the limestones? Or at a beach…
Ruins, Visby is full of ruins that are just gorgeous to have your wedding at! https://gogotland.se/gogotland-se/ruiner/
I would love to shoot in Provence again… Those fields of lavender, hills and small pittoresk villages in the mountains. Any day of the week
OK, other then this… well I can tell you that there are still a number of places I would love to shoot your wedding at:
In Stockholm I would like to add a number of nice places such as
Grand hotel saltsjöbaden
Just to name a few places!
But, choose a place that you love and adore!
I have news! Big news!
I am adding value to my customers! From today you are able to book your fine art wedding package with me. Now, what does that mean…?
Well to me wedding is a lovestory, and as the romantic, dreamy and edit loving photographer that I am, I do want to capture storytelling moments on your day and carefully choose and treat your photos. The package includes the timeless, sophisticated and dreamy pastel edit and for the 10 hour package at least 250 photos is included, and an album with 40 pages of artistic photos from your day.
So have a look at how this edit looks like.
Psst. Later the coming week I will show on my website how a wedding looks like if you choose the fine art wedding or the wedding package. both my edits..

So today I have been attending a gorgeous and inspiring workshop for one of my favorite photographers Erika Gerdemark. Ever since I became a wedding photographer I have been following her highly romantic pastel photos. And today I finally got to meet her in person and spend an entire day with her. I also got to spend time with a dozen other awesome photographers. It is so important to attend at least one workshop per year, to boost yourself with new confidence, new ideas, and be surrounded by creativity. I also promised Erika to book a day for a kick-off for myself. Friday next week will be the day I focus on developing my company and change a few things. Man, I love my job.
Here comes some of my favorite photos from the first workshop I ever went to that Hélena Parmér was in charge of, in Provence. Yes I will post the photos from today´s winter shoot, but they will be shown another week. 😉
Det tål att sägas igen. Dagen är Er, Ni är de som ska minnas denna fantastiska dag på det sätt ni vill. Ett sätt att befästa er stil är genom att ha ett tema för bröllopet. Allt ifrån vintage, fantasy, Harry Potter, 20-tal, modernt eller cirkustema? Eller ett färgtema är också ett sätt att få en enhetlighet vilket också gör att bilderna blir extra vackra.
It can be said again. The Day is yours, You are the one to remember this magnificent day the way you want it. One way to strengthen your style is by a wedding-theme. Why not inspired by vintage, fantasy, Harry Potter, the roaring 20s, modern or a circus themed wedding? or a color theme is also a way to get uniformity.
