Getting married in the middle of October in Norway can be risky. You never know if you'll get summery vibes or a full blown winter storm. But wow were we lucky with the weather this day, and it set the tone for an amazing wedding day for Hanna and Andreas.
In Helene and Aleksanders wedding I was both a guest and photographer. They are good friends from waaaay back, and I was so happy and honored when they asked me to document their wedding day. I knew this was going to be an awesome wedding, with Helene and Aleksander being laid-back, fun and awesome people :)
Alcina and Glenn from Singapore wanted to do a 'couples photo shoot' while they were in Norway this summer. At first I did all the communication with Alcina, so I was curious about this Glenn that I hadn't spoken to yet. But about a 6 weeks before we met up, Glenn contacted me and told me that he was secretly planning to propose to Alcina while in Norway!
Beautiful church ceremony and dinner with family in the city, boat out to an island, cakes/dancing/good times with friends & family all afternoon, jazzy live big band, send old people home at 11PM, DJ gets the dance floor going, roasted bbq lamb on a spit at 3AM
Sometimes the stars align to create the most beautiful wedding day. This is what happened with Kaia and Matias' wedding! The ceremony was held at the stunning Lindesnes Lighthouse, which is Norway's southernmost point! A beautiful backdrop for this special day!
I was lucky enough to be contacted by Michelle and Simon, a lovely couple from Hong Kong. They recently got engaged and wanted to do a pre wedding session on their trip to the Nordic countries. After some planning we chose the beautiful Aurland in the western part of Norway, a couple hours north of Bergen. This area is known for its fjords, mountains and all-round spectacular nature.
Meeting up with adventurous couples, and spending the day getting to know them whilst making beautiful images is my dream assignment :) So of course I was super excited when Jillian and Jason from Malaysia contacted me. They were getting married in New York and wanted to travel to Lofoten for their wedding pictures. Here are my favorite images from our day together :)
Here are some of the pictures from last weeks engagement photo shoot with this super sweet couple. We met up in the beautiful coastal area between Tønsberg and Horten in Vestfold, Norway, and spent a couple hours exploring the area.
I love taking portraits in the middle of freezing cold Norwegian winter! After seeing these happy, warm and romantic pictures you will too :)
