When my friend told us she was getting married and was looking for a wedding photographer, I suggested myself for two reasons. 1 – I would have brought my camera and try to act as the photographer anyway. 2 – I had never actually shot a wedding and since she’s seen my photos before it was the perfect opportunity.
The day before the wedding, I went with the wedding party to check out the church and scout for locations for the portraits. The wedding was taking place in Värmland, the part of Sweden where I grew up, and the church was surrounded by farmland and forest. Just before we arrived, I spotted a big yellow crop field and immediately thought “we have to take the pictures there!”.
The bride and groom agreed so we decided on that field and a beautiful tree alley nearby. What I didn’t know then was the whole wedding party was driving an old VW bus, which fit the pictures perfectly! I’m so happy how the portraits came out.
