A Countryside Wedding

Last weekend I had the privilege of photographing “D” and “A” in Hällekis, somewhere in the middle of Sweden. The ceremony was held at Forshem Church (Forshems Kyrka) and the dinner and party at Hellekis Säteri. I was able to sneak the bride and groom away from the dinner for a few minutes during the Golden Hour to take a couple of snapshots, which was a hightlight for me!

A third of the guests were from Australia, and some from the U.S., so it was truly an international affair, and there was a great mix of traditions. And I thought Swedes could party? Those Aussies were something else! A good time was had by all, including yours truly who made a couple new friends during the weekend affair. “D” and “A”, I hope these photos bring you back to that amazing day.

I am am now signing off for a few days of rest and relaxation (well as much rest and relaxation as one can get with 2-year old twin boys), but at least time away from the computer. Later!

Fotograf Louise Johansson - Wow! Absolutely amazing pictures- again! You are such a great photographer!

Linn Adlerz - Så vackert! Underbara och ömma bilder! :)

Anna - Åh vad fint! Du är så bra Jenny ;-)

Fredrik and Marie-Louise’s Wedding at Krusenberg

Remember in the movie Love Actually how they show all the reunions at the airport terminal, of loved ones hugging and kissing when they meet after being apart from one another? Well, that always makes me cry, and when I am at the airport picking someone up, I love to observe and share these moments (most might call it “stare and eavesdrop”). Well, I get the same kind of feeling as I go through photos of hugs and kisses outside of the church after a marriage ceremony, and this wedding is no different. Seeing friends and family members tear up and hug the bride and groom with so much love and joy is like a drug for me. Like seeing Marie-Louise’s grandfather lovingly place his hand on Fredrik’s cheek… sigh. I know I am a total sap, but that’s why I feel I have found the right job. I am going to stop rambling and let you have a look at some of this beautiful couple’s wedding photos.

 Marie-Louise and Fredrik got married in Alsike Church (Alsike kyrka) and had the dinner and party at Krusenberg Manor (Krusenberg Herrgård).

Brotherly Love

There was a rain storm looming as I photographed this lovely Norweigan family while they were visiting Stockholm. I actually love when it’s windy, it somehow makes everything come to life. What I love about photographing kids, is that they do as they please, and are so REAL, and that was really true for these adorable kids, 1 and almost 4 years old.

Fotograf Louise Johansson - How beautiful!! Amazing, you have caught so much joy and happiness in the pictures!

odd brown bird - Gud så underbart. Ljuset är grymt. Dessutom.

Sofia’s Pregnancy Photos

My husband asked me the other day why women want to have their photos taken when they are pregnant? He probably remembers when I had horrible morning sickness for the first 4 months and how I suffered from heartburn, back pain and waddling. And since my babies threatened to come out in week 27 (13 weeks too early) I was on total bed rest for the remainder of the pregnancy and in and out of the hospital. But what I remember most was the feeling that I had never felt as beautiful as I did then. I was so proud of my twin belly and lived for the commotion they created in there. I remember my pregnancy as a wonderful time, and I guess that is how nature works. Anyway, last week I photographed Sofia, who told me she has had a wonderful pregnancy and wanted to capture this time in her life. I hope she feels beautiful when she sees these, because she really is!

Åsa - Vackra bilder och bra skrivet, jag tyckte det kändes jätteviktigt och kul att ha bilder på tvillingmagen, trots illamående och att det gjorde ont på lite för många ställen så minns man som du sa mest en varm mysig känsla av att känna de små liven därinne, och man kände sig vacker på något sätt! Nu är det inte så länge sen, men man glömmer så fort och bilderna hjälper mig verkligen att minnas :-)

Linn - Så underbart vackert! :D

Mattz Birath - Underbara bilder som vanligt :-)
