Kim & Alex, Ystad wedding

March 23.

My first winter wedding. My first wedding on home ground. And hey—even my first baptism.

Being a bit nervous with so many new things being introduced to me, Kim and Alex were the ultimate couple to shoot. I thought all brides were getting nervous and a bit stressed out when their wedding date was approaching... Well, not Kim. The two of them were so great through-out the whole process and trusted me completely; not only before, but during and after their wedding as well. In other words, music to a photographer's ears.

When their wedding day came, it turned out to be the most gorgeous winter day. The sun was out and the snow stayed put. Their daughter, Laura, was such a sweetheart the whole day and couldn't care less about what was happening around her.  

I couldn't have asked for a better start of my first wedding season. 


New Zealand wedding, Lah + Chad

November in Auckland. 25 degrees in the shade. A bubbly bride, listening to gangsta rap while getting ready. Continuous happy tears from the bride, bridesmaids and parents. And way more sun than we could handle. Although Lah and Chad only needed me for a few hours in the morning as well as the ceremony, I was so grateful the whole day. This was a great reminder of how much I want and need to do this—the five hours spent in East Auckland turned this day to be one of my favorite days spent in New Zealand.

To me, there is nothing more beautiful and rewarding, than to be part of this special day in two people's lives.
