Two beautiful souls - A wedding in Skåne

You probably know the story of how Sophia contacted me from the first time. I instantly felt that she understood what I see in images. And when I received the signed contract sent by mail in a handmade envelope, I was even more convinced that this was a couple that valued beautiful things. I had a blast photographing Henrik and Sophia's wedding in Kivik July 30.  erika_gerdemark_photography_113erika_gerdemark_photography_36erika_gerdemark_photography_62

The preparations was held at Vitemölla Badhotell, a very beautiful place just next to the sea. erika_gerdemark_photography_48erika_gerdemark_photography_53erika_gerdemark_photography_49

When I saw this location for the first time I felt like I was in fairy land. Can't tell how much I love this place.erika_gerdemark_photography_94erika_gerdemark_photography_171erika_gerdemark_photography_162erika_gerdemark_photography_183erika_gerdemark_photography_192erika_gerdemark_photography_20

After the ceremony the bridal couple took a ride in an old car, a Packard from 1937, to a place by the water that means a lot to them.erika_gerdemark_photography_321erika_gerdemark_photography_50erika_gerdemark_photography_361erika_gerdemark_photography_351erika_gerdemark_photography_492

The ring that Sophia got on her finger on the wedding day was the most beautiful ring that ever caught my eye. The ring was bought on an auction and was from 50's. After remaking the ring by the jeweler at L'etui in Stockholm the result was incredible! 

Spending this day in Österlen was really a pleasure. I drove back to the boarding house where I stayed the night with the sun reflecting in my eyes and felt lucky. The happiness came from Henrik and Sophia. During the day they felt like friends of mine and I'm happy that I had the chance to photograph their wedding. Through out the whole day they were glistening and I wonder if I've ever seen a bridal couple glisten in the way they did. Their love for one another was unmistakable. 

Henrik and Sophia, thank you for putting your trust in me. Since that beautiful letter you sent me you will always have a special place in my heart.

Words from a client that brought tears in my eyes

erika_gerdemark_photography_51 One of the first emails I received from Sophia was a truly beautiful letter. I found myself reading it all over again and almost crying of it's beauty and sincereness. From that moment I felt in love with Sophia and I'm thankful that I had the chance to photograph her and Henrik's wedding in Skåne a couple of weeks ago. More photos to come from this lovely day in Kivik.

This is a part of Sophia's letter:

"Det känns som om du inte tar bilder av verkligheten utan du skapar ett konstverk genom din hand inte med en pensel utan genom din kameralins. Du är bara en helt fantastisk fotograf! Du lyckas fånga stämningar och ljusspel på ett helt underbart sätt. Dina brudar ser ut som en kombination av modernt elegant sofistikerade fotomodelller och medeltida sagoprinsessor. Det är en session i denna känsloladdade och stämningsfulla anda som jag önskar. Du får helt fria händer, total kreativ carte blanche, det finns faktiskt inte en enda bild du tagit som jag inte tycker om."

“It feels like you don’t just take pictures of the real world, you create a work of art, not by your hand, but through the lens of your camera. You are such an amazing photographer. You manage to catch different feelings and soft lightning in the most beautiful way. Your brides looks like a combination of elegant, modern, sophisticated models and fairytale princess of the middle ages. I wanted pictures in this emotional and spiritual feeling. You will have totally freedom, creative carte blanche, there isn’t a picture I’ve seen that I don’t like!"

From the bottom of my heart, thanks Sophia. I can describe what those words meant to me.

Fairyland - A wedding in Skåne
