The Wedding

I had the honor to photograph my sisters wedding in Copenhagen recently.
Here's a small selection of the photos I took.
Those of you who know me, know that I have always been reluctant to photographing weddings, since I find most of the wedding photos out there extremely cliché and cheesy. Of course I did take some of the typical wedding photos, you can't get away without taking a few family portraits and photos of the happy couple kissing. But I tried to create my own personal touch using natural lighting and some of my other special little techniques.
I think it's important to always stay true to your style of photography regardless of the job your doing. Luckily my sister is also an artist at heart and pretty much let me do my own thing on their big day. Which I was very happy and thankful for.
In my next post, I will share with you, my own personal favorite photos from the wedding.

Peace Of Mind

The best way to clear the mind and to get that extra boost of energy. These photos were taken on a long bikeride, followed by climbing to the top of a mountain. Even though it was a challenging and hard workout, it also was extremely satisfying to push my comfort levels! I love getting out in the middle of nature, either on my own or with my boyfriend. And the camera always tags along of course! It's really a great way to regain focus on what's going on in your life and what you are trying to achieve.

"If you want more out of something the first step to getting it is to being thankful for what’s already there. When you fully appreciate, understand and exploit whats immediately available to you is when you’re ready for the next thing. Don’t worry about how, why or how long it will take – just get to it and everything will manifest itself in the process."
Encouraging and inspirational words written by the guy who runs my favorite music site: et musique pour tous. I think it's important to appreciate all the amazing people and things around us and use that energy to create your own work. Try to illiminate the people who bring negativity and limit you in any way.  At least this is how I plan on keeping a positive state of mind and reach my goals. Be patient and great things will come your way! Well, enough rambling for now :)
Next up will be wedding photos from Copenhagen.

That Look In Her Eyes

Part Two of our shoot.
As mentioned, I always have lots of fun shooting with Miriam. We always keep it pretty natural and I'm quite amused by the minimal use of make-up and how doing our own styling turns out successfully. Here I borrowed my boyfriend's apartment and improvised with tecniques like using different filters and the reflections from flowers, taking pictures through the veranda windows, and working with shadows created by sunlight. 

By the way, I'm always interested in getting in touch with and working with other creative minds out there, especially stylists. So if this is something you're interested in, don't hesitate to send me an email.

La Beauté

A photographer often finds a muse, and one person I always enjoy taking pictures with is Miriam. Since she is back in the country for a little while, we had the chance to work together again. First I had a fairly improvised shoot for fun with her and her boyfriend. And then we had a more planned and organized shoot. Here is the first part.

Some of the best times

Memories from amazing weekends and vacations I've been on so far this year.
Nothing is better than getting away for a roadtrip and arriving to relaxing places surrounded by this nature. So climbing to the top of mountains has become a favorite past time, especially when rewarded by views like the one above.

Having finally reached the top and immersed in the beautiful scenery.
