From San Francisco to Ibiza


Traveling is freedom for me. I'm thankful for the possibilities and even life challenges me sometimes I also know that is when I'm growing and getting stronger on a personal level. One of my favorite things is to drive a car alone in a new country viewing a landscape and listen to some great music. I've been traveling a lot the past months and the wedding season is about to begin very soon (starts in Skåne) and I will photograph many weddings abroad this year. I've spent the past week in Spain for some magazine work and next week I will be traveling to Ireland with a journalist. Let the summer begin! Here is one of my favorite songs with Kristofer Åström (a great Swedish singer/songwriter) and a portrait of Alicia Swedenborg in New York.

A wedding photographer's dream in Bali

When I got the inquiry from Veronica and Steve last summer to photograph their wedding in Bali I was shooting some magazine work in Austria. I was staying near the turquoise lake Wörthersee. It turned out  that this color really connected me to Veronica and Steve's wedding. The details, the vespa and the ocean were all in pastel. A few days ago I saw a turquoise old car for sale in a car magazine, a Fiat 1100 de luxe 1956, and I instantly thought of Veronica and sent her a photo of it. This is their pastel story from their beautiful day May 19th.

Photographing the wedding of two designers from Jakarta was really a dream. Not only the location was amazing, it meant a lot that Veronica and Steve are creative souls and trusted my ideas and visions. Both the ceremony and the reception took place at the luxury resort Pantai Lima. I had never before photographed in such a tropical heat so I drank a lot of water and even though my feet hurt at the end of the day (as they always do) I ended the shoot on the dance floor without the camera.

A few days before the wedding we had a beach session. Go check it out if you have not seen it!

Dear Veronica and Steve, thanks a lot for inviting me to your wedding and for being fun and genuine people. I'm really looking forward to meeting you again in Scandinavia on your vacation in August and in the end of July in Bali when I will photograph another wedding.
