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. 😉
Yes summer in Stockholm is stunning!
I had the privilege to attend a wedding inspired event hosted by the very talented weddingblog Sisters in law with the founder Zanna Metzer in the front and her partner in crime Kristina Grahn, and my colleague and friend Malin Norlen. The event was located at The Lobby in central Sthlm and divided in two parts, one lecture by Malin where we were given all sorts of advise as a wedding photographer. It was extremely useful, and full of laughter! And the second part was a styled shoot with a wedding couple and also the one of two sisters in law Kicki (Kristina Grahn) who is the founder of Ellen Marie Bridal for the bride who wants another color than white on her bridal dress.
This event was a great arena and meeting point for people in different stages of our wedding careers in search of network, inspiration, tips and tricks & some hands on photography in a sunset wrapped Stockholm. Since I started in the business of wedding photography last year I’ve been fortunate to meet colleagues who have been generous with their advice and made me feel welcome. It feels we are colleagues not competitors. And the best thing I can do, and I feel it stronger and stronger, is to be the same and to pass it on. More on that in a later blog post.
Now for the important stuff. Here are the well deserved credit to the people who made it all happen.

Äntligen har jag breddat alla mina erbjudanden och klargjort paketen för 2018!
Nu blir jag så där ivrig igen att bara börja. Boka, boka, boka. “Jag-VILL-fota-just-dig” ivern som liknar ett barns! Fast just så blir jag av fotograferandet, så fort jag har en idé så väcks hela min nyfikenhet och lust att bara göra. Hoppas vi ses på just ditt planeringsmöte!
Finally I have opened up my offers and packages for 2018!
I get so eager to start, my “I-just-want-to- take- YOUR-picture” excitement is similar to a child´s. But that is how I react to photography, as soon as I have a new ide, I want to try it and my curiosity and lust is awaken to just do it. Man I hope to see ya in your own planning meeting!
