Åsa & Pontus – Örenäs Slott – June 24th, 2017

Wedding films
6 september, 2017

So, I got the question last year, from the best wedding coordinator in Sweden, if I was free on ”Midsommar”, which is Swedens most celebrated weekend during the summer. She was planning the wedding of a football player, playing for the National team of Sweden and his girlfriend and they wanted a videographer. I was so new, had only done one wedding when I got the question, so maybe I should have said no. This was about to be a big wedding. But ”no” is not my thing. ”Yes” is.

A few months before the wedding, the groom wanted to make a film with his speech, cause he knew that he wouldn’t be able to ”hold it together” during the wedding reception, so I went down to Malmö and met up with Pontus and I immediately felt that this is a guy who hasn’t let his fame and success get to his head. This is a humble guy, with both his feet on the ground.

We both cried while he spoke into the camera. I cried while editing it. And then we cried while playing it in front of the more than 100 guests as the last thing on the reception before the party started. And not just us. Everybody cried.

I like that. Tears and feelings all over the place. You could feel the total love, joy and tingling nervousness during the morning and up to the first look. Through the small moments in between, through the portraits, the ceremony and all the speeches. The bride, Åsa, must be one of the most grounded and loving persons I have ever met. The way she spread her love over her friends and family in her speech was extraordinary. Well. So was Pontus filmed speech, as just mentioned.

I feel so humbled to have been a part of these two lovely souls wedding day. To witness their love and get to know them and see the little things they do, like Åsa resting her head against Pontus shoulder and Pontus kissing Åsa on the forehead. How they so much belong together, but still are very much their own individuals.

The world needs more people like Åsa and Pontus. That’s just the way it is.

Ida & Andreas – Västerås, Sweden – July 28th, 2018
This is a story about a family from Västerås. Not just about a bride and groom, not just about two people in love, but about a solid, beautiful and warm unit with a mother, a father and two daughters. Ida contacted me on Facebook almost one year before their wedding day. She was interested in having a videographer for their wedding, but she was very open with the groom needed to be "worked" on before anything could be settled. The inquiry was "only" for three hours, which I don't book that far in advance, but the wedding was taking place in a city where I used to live, I was gonna have a lot of full day weddings around the date and I also ...

Mallory & Félix – Iceland Elopement – May 30th, 2019
A wedding on Iceland is probably a huge dream for many photographers and videographers around the world. As was it for me. And in 2019 I got to do my own Iceland elopement wedding film. I had the honor of joining Cole from Nordica Photography to document Mallory and Félix's absolutely amazing elopement at Snæfellsnes peninsula on a beautiful May day. The weather was not typical for Iceland. It was warm and the sky was blue, in contrast to the usually cold, rainy and windy Iceland. I guess the weather just wanted to match Mallory and Félix, cause let me tell you: we had FUN. There were so many details with this wedding that was amazing. ...
