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
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*
Hi there friends!
Today is delivery day for Nina & Marcus who got married at Gotland 18th of May this year. I am thrilled to show you the gorgeous collection of photos.
The ceremony was given at Ihreviken, at Ihre klint which is private property but with the ocean and sky as your backdrop!
Gorgeous to say the least! Dinner and party was held at Ihrekvarn! Which also has beautiful surroundings as a ruin and water.
Please check out their gallery!
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 do, and for the fifth time I got to spend a week there and celebrate my fortieth! And among all the fun stuff the city had to offer us I also got to shoot an amazing lady called Ling. She´s a funloving, fierce doer and I´m thrilled to have gotten the change to do a portrait shoot with her.
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. 😉
Själv hade jag enbart ljus ljus rosa pioner i min brudbukett.
Tänkte jag skulle visa er de vackra kreationer jag varit med och fotat.
Men möjligheterna är oändliga… Här kommer en ren inspirationspost.//
I had myself a pure light light pink peons bouquet as my bridal bouquet.
So I thought I should show you some of the gorgeous creations I have photographed!
But the possibilities are endless…. Here comes a pure inspirational post.
