Some people spend years planning their ceremony and invite over one hundred guests. Some people pick a beautiful spot in their hometown and invite no one except their two best friends as witnesses. Add balloons, confetti and an officiant, and you’ve got a wedding! Johanna and Kristoffer said yes to each other at Blockhusudden, a beautiful green spot in the middle of Stockholm. It was a lovely autumn day, and I am so happy that I could be there and document it for them.

On New Year’s Eve 2016 I made one of the hardest decisions in my life: I resigned from my dream job. At this point in time I had taken a break from photography to go and work at Our Chalet, an international scout and guide center in the Swiss Alps. At first I could not believe my luck when I got the job! I was going to work for Scouts and Guides and give back to an organization that had given me so much in my life. I fell in love with the picturesque village of Adelboden, and I really loved all the amazing people I was working with. But after a year in the office I had come to realize that I did not love the job. I was working very long hours and I had very little time for other things. It didn’t matter that my office had the best view in the world, I just wanted to spend more time outside the office. I wanted more time for my photography adventures, more time for my friends and family, and more time for me. So I quit.
I had three months notice and some vacation days to use, so in the end I stayed in Switzerland for another four months. I landed in Sweden on May 10th and did not have any plans except shooting a wedding at the end of the month. I decided to look for a part time job while I was getting my business up and running again. Things happened very fast and on June 1st I started working part time at Scandinavian Photo in Stockholm. I became a kid in a candy store! Most of my summer days was spent in the shop, and my evenings and weekends was spent on photography, friends, family and myself. Fall came and so did more photo shoots. And slowly Stuudio Huusmann came back to life.
A year has passed since I decided to change things, and I really like where life is heading now. I look forward to new adventures, many fun photo shoots, and some lazy days in my little summer house in Roslagen just outside Stockholm. It’s gonna be great!
Below are my favourite snapshots from 2017. A big THANK YOU! to all my clients, family and friends for making this turbulent year a really good one!
Elizabeth from Singapore met Daniel from Sweden while they were studying in Japan. They fell in love, stayed in love, and after being in love for ten years they decided to get married. The top secret elopement wedding took place in Stockholm with a ceremony at the City Hall. It was just the two of them, I got to both document the ceremony and act as a witness. It was a lovely day with many smiles and lots of laughter. Elizabeth and Daniel, thank you for letting me be part of it! I wish you all the best on your new path in life!
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!
Jenn and Amy met in the beautiful valley of Adelboden, Switzerland. According to the tale it was more or less love at first sight, and it did not take that long until these lovely ladies had put sparkly rings on their fingers. I am going to have the great honour of photographing their wedding later this year, and I am so much looking forward to it! This engagement session was a lot of fun, and I am sure the wedding will be awesome.
