A LITTLE PHOTO JOURNAL FROM OUR ICELAND TRIP.
Natascha and Jan reached out to me last Autumn about documenting their wedding. I immediately fell in love with how they their big day and once I met up with them for a chat and a coffee I grew even more excited because these two are just wonderful: An amazingly sweet couple and we hit it off straight away. They will get married on July 29th at an old 13th century stone church at Stevns Klint (a UNESCO Heritage Site) - and their wedding reception will be held at Herthadalen in Lejre... Their wedding will have nordic, rustic and Bohemian wedding vibes and I just now it's going to be beautiful! I am so looking forward to this!:)
For their engagement shoot Natascha & Jan decided they wanted photos from Kongelunden in Dragør, and I am so glad they took me there because it's an amazing place and we just had such a good time. I was happy when they told me they were bringing Bowie, their little fur baby! Because if you follow me on social media, you will know I am big animal lover <3 I say - always bring your fur babies to your photo shoots -- SO I CAN CUDDLE THEM and well, also because they are an important part of your family :) !
Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot.
Julia & Andreas are one of my Swedish couples in 2017 - they are having their wedding in Sweden in May 2017 and I am so excited they asked me to document their big day. Not only are these two the sweetest couple, whom I clicked with instantly at our first skype meeting, but they also have such a great style and their wedding will be so beautiful. A wedding photographer's dream.
In September Julia & Andreas caught the train all the way to Copenhagen to hang out with me; first coffee and cozy chats and then we went to one of my absolute favourite places in Copenhagen: Sydhavnstippen. By now it should be no secret that I love sheep - and just animals in general, so anytime I can combine photo shoots and cuddling animals I am in heaven.
I like doing photo shoots where we have space to move, and have fun – it creates a more relaxed ambience and more adventurous feel in the photos.
So here is a little selection of my engagement session in Copenhagen with Julia & Andreas; exploring Sydhavnstippen.
Today I bring you a few more photos from my bohemian styled elopement in Berlin: A Berlin Love Story. Read more about the making of these here.
A huge thanks to my lovely couple Franziska & Florian
for allowing me to photograph them.
Happy Valentines Day!
Accessories: Models own
Couple: Franziska Charlotte Eibenstein & Florian Von Tafelt.
Louise & Fintan, a long with their baby boy, travelled to Copenhagen from Belfast, Northen Ireland, to tie the knot in Copenhagen City Hall - and I was there to capture the beautiful moments for them. Here is a little selection of photos from the day.
Last Summer I decided I wanted show Cory one of my all time favorite cities: Berlin! We went away for a little week in July just to catch out breath in the peak of wedding season. Before traveling there I had found the beautiful and inspiring Franziska on Instagram and asked her if she wanted to do a styled shoot with me whilst I was there. Lucky me she said yes! And even luckier was it that her boyfriend Florian was willing to be part of it as well. I loved photographing this lovely couple; so much love and sweetness between these two, both old spirits in their own way.
I didn't plan anything else prior to traveling to Berlin except I knew the mood of the images would be based on a bohemian elopement in Berlin since that vibe reflected Franziskas amazing sense of style already. All of the jewelry in this shoot are her own - and they matched perfectly with the dress.
When I arrived to Berlin I very last minute contacted a florist: Blumen-Sühr, who's work I was familiar with because I had seen a german styled shoot they had done the flowers for. Luckily they had time to help me out and made the most amazing over-sized wedding bouquet and matching flower crown for my bohemian bride.
I hadn't brought anything with me to Berlin besides my camera, so I was roaming around shops for days trying to find a dress Franziska could wear. I ended up finding a lovely crochet dress in H&M and since the theme was a free spirited & bohemian wedding/elopement – it was perfect. Turned out that Franziska actually worked in bridal dress shop and she was able to borrow the veil from them which added to the whimsical feel of the shoot. I didn't know what Florian was going to wear, but on the day I was so pleased with what they had chosen: they completely understood the look I was going for – I loved those burgundy suspenders.
On the day I went crazy and bought props: glasses, plates, a wooden cradle, the "bohemian" throw - bought organic fruits, vegan cake and from our Air BnB I borrowed the Moroccan table.
I started off with wanting to do an ordinary semi-styled couples shoot and ended up doing a whole styled shoot in a city where I had none of my regular props, car or connections... Although my styling was somewhat mediocre I worked with what I had could gather; and like the result :) It started small and grew as we came to Berlin. You see, I don't really know how to things like this half way. Cory was so sweet about it and supportive, and I ended up loving the photos - so here is a little sneak peek of my bohemian elopement in Berlin. More to come.
