I’m sitting in a rainy Gothenburg and it’s almost March. I look out into the gray and long for to the sunshine and summer warmth. It will soon be here, the heat, the light and all the wonderful weddings.
As a wedding photographer you work most Saturdays throughout the summer. Some Saturdays is booked up early and requested many times after that. Other little more seldom. Sometimes people get married on a Friday or during the winter. Then we can book on a short notice but a weekend in the middle of the summer is much worse. The first inquiries for summer 2015 have already started to come in.
So, do you have plans to put up a wedding this summer, spring or fall? Contact me! I have about half of the weekends free for 2014. And I’d love to shoot every weekend!
I realized the other day that I have not shown other than previews from one of my favorite jobs in 2013: “Mornington Hotel Vardagsgläntor 2″.
Vardagsgläntor is Swedish for glade or opening of the weekday. A good description of a perfect place in between the obvious ones.
It is the second time that the Mornington Hotel Stravaganza Göteborg is publishing the book Vardagsgläntor, where hotel employees and a number of renowned guests pick and tell about their favorite places in Göteborg – places that are a little outside the main tourist areas. It is a fantastic book with really good tips. Even more fun is that the hotel has allowed each employee to be photographed in different styles. Each style is unique to them. There is everything from delicate pink to dirty rock and roll. I was the photographer and each spread is something new in both styles and text.
Here you see everyone from the manager to the cleaning lady. And even one of the “guest writers” in the book. The red photo is of Nathalie, who works as a producer at GIFF (Göteborg International Film Festival) and is also hard rocking DJ.
The book is designed by Stina Thimren on Bilbao and stylist and makeup artist were Kristin Brulay with assistance of Tuva Holmlander and Carolina Berta.
José is Gothenburg’s best Sushi chef. Perhaps even Sweden’s best. He runs on his own the very special restaurant Hoze in Gothenburg. He has been trained by a Japanese master and serves fantastic sushi and other totally incredible dishes. The fish he uses is almost always Swedish and Nordic, everything from herring to cod.
Metro gave him five stars and he is beginning to become a star among the Swedish chef’s. Do you get the opportunity to visit him because you will not regret it for one second.
I’ve taken a bunch of press photos of him and where you can not only see José but also his special knife and the Japanese Yuzu fruit.
What will you have as canapés? Should you have band, DJ or Spotify? What time is best for portraits? How much wine for each person? How much time is needed at the hairdresser? How do you go from the church to the party? Who helps here, and how are you doing that?! There is so much to consider when it comes to a wedding.
We that are working with wedding photo has often been around on many wedding not just some hours but all day and has lots of tips and tricks on what to do and not do to your day to be as good as possible. Not only to get great images but within everything and nothing .So feel free to ask me if you’re wondering what time we should shoot or if you want tips on everything from dj ( Paulina is awesome!) To cook (Simon and Martin!) Or from time at the hairdresser (many hours!) Or if it ‘s something you Forgot schedule ( lunch? ) .
Below you can see the canapés that Ingrid and Leonard served. They were very popular and good for those who like mussels and shellfish.
The bookings for 2014 has started to come. So if you are planning your wedding in 2014 and especially in the summer,then it’s time to book your photographer.
There’s lots to think about for a wedding. Amazing good food, how to keep the drinks cold and bubbly. The location must be booked and maybe decorated. And the right wedding photographer must be found.
There are so many factors that make a photographer’s right for you. But if you want to book me, two things are more important than any other. That you like my photos and that we have fun together. Then we create the magic!
