This 2019 weddingseason is officially over!

I am still editing like a crazy, but after that another season is here. And that season is divided in two.

One part of it is where I build my brand, I work with my company and what I specialise in like portraits, familysession, photography as art to fill your walls and I get SO creative. Do you have an idea that you want or at least wonder if it is possible to do – please please please reach out. I LOVE such or any challenges.

The second part is a development of the above but more of a work I do with myself within. I promise I dig deep! *giggles*

Next week I´ll be sharing a few things you don´t know about me but to know would actually help you guys when you book me… Don´t want to wait until next week Thats ok, the 11/11n I will be sending my newsletter, and if you haven´t signed up fot that, it is really time for that now. Head into my website and on the firs page, you scroll down to the very last part of the page -there you can just enter your email and – tada- you will receive the newsletter.

 

 

But today I am offering you guys a sneak peek of my last wedding of this season.

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.

A cityhall wedding

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!

 

 

 

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/

 

 

Besides Gotland,

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

Dalarö skans

Slottsträdgården Ulriksdal

Lejondal slott

Ruin Retreat

Grand hotel saltsjöbaden

Ekensdal

Rosendal slott

Thoresta herrgård

Also:

Österlen

Öland

Marstrand

Just to  name a few places!

But, choose a place that you love and adore!

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. 😉
