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

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

 

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*

Wedding at Gotland

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!
