Wedding Photography in the Land of Fire and Ice

brúðkaup

All the cool photographers go to Iceland, that is a fact. So when my photographer colleague Emelie arranged a workshop in the Land of Fire and Ice I signed up immediately. I had never been to Iceland before, but I knew it would be great. To travel through these amazing landscapes with my photography friends and beautiful models, it could not be anything but fantastic!

These are pictures from our day with Gígja and Trausti, a newlywed couple from Reykjavik. They were great in front of the camera, and the weather gods were very good to us too. First we took pictures under a grey and moody sky, and then the clouds parted and a golden light spread across the fields. It was photography heaven!

I am definitively going to visit Iceland again, and I would really love to do it as a wedding photographer. So if you are reading this and planning a wedding in this beautiful corner of the world, get in touch!

SHARE Photography Camp in Scania, Sweden

For this Throwback Thursday I give you some behind the scenes photos of a photographers life. My friend and photography colleague Annelie Johnsson wanted to go to a workshop where photographers could just hang out, share their experiences in an informal setting, and have some fun together. She could not find such a workshop, so she decided to organise it herself! So this is my visit to the SHARE photography camp in April 2016. The location was beautiful Vejbystrand in the south of Sweden, and even if the weather was cold and windy we left the event with a feeling of warmth. Working as a photographer can be lonely sometimes, but meeting up with your colleagues and laughing a lot is the best remedy for loneliness.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

I can’t wait! Here is a sneak peek from yesterdays photo shoot in Hagaparken. Me and my favorite florist Viktoria from Melody Flowers wanted to create a romantic style shoot with a touch of midsummers eve, and oh, how good it turned out! As you can see the evening light was fantastic and our lovely couple Jeanette & Markus looked so gorgeous! I’m really looking forward to show you the rest of the images. Stay tuned!

Nature and Zombies with @wisslaren

I was casually scrolling through Instagram one day when I came across a post made by nature photographer Christoffer Collin, aka @wisslaren. He invited his followers to a lecture at the Apple Store in Täby. I am a huge fan of his images, so of course I signed up! A few days later I sat down on The Most Uncomfortable Barstool in the Universe. (Hey Apple Täby, if you are reading this, get comfier furniture for future lectures!)

Chris told us about his journey on Instagram. What started as a hobby has now become his job. In conclusion the lecture was very inspirational, and I really admire someone who dare to quit his job and try life as a photographer. Chris was also very humble and claimed “I am no photographer”, but if you take awesome photos and can make a living out of it, then of course you are a true photographer!

Here are some of Chris’ tips on how to become big on Instagram: Take a lot of great images, post them often, use hashtags, be consistent. Do this and and you will be recognized. I have to start working with the “post often”…

Chris also said “If you are going to remember only one thing from this lecture, start playing Plants and Zombies 2! It is THE best game!” I don’t always do as I am told, but this time i did. And yeah, the game is really addictive. Give it a go!
