After a few windy cooler spring days, we were suddenly blessed with the most beautiful calm sunny day for Margareta and Andreas wedding. The couple and all their family and friends were nothing but smiles (and a few tears) from start to finish.
I joined Ashley and Alex for their civil ceremony with Danish Island Weddings at The Old Merchant's Court in Aeroeskoebing on an unusually beautiful and warm March day. The couple eloped and their only guests were their two adopted dogs. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing the joyful loving spirit of their union, and exploring our little island with them.
Last week I was joined by an intern from the local school, Freja, who wants to be a travel and nature photographer. We spent the week doing nature photo walks, watching Creative Live educational videos, answering emails, shooting a wedding on a windy spring day, talking Instagram strategies and tips, and so much more. On our last day together I set up a little challenge for her to create a few styled images that would fit into her nature/travel instagram universe.
2016 had lots of laughs, lots of tears, and so much love. I met so many wonderful new people, built new friendships, reconnected with past clients for both anniversary sessions and kids portrait sessions as their families have grown. I travelled to the dark misty alleys of Venice, to the moody mountains of Scotland, and - once again this year - to my home away from home: beautiful Norway, as well as to almost all corners of little Denmark.
2016 also became the year where I finally made a decision that I needed some time to come to terms with. It is the hardest business decision I have ever made, but the easiest life decision too.
Cathrine and Adam have been a couple for many years, and as I have been with my now husband since I was 19 years old, I know from personal experience how challenging and beautiful it can be to "grow up" together, staying in love and staying devoted as you develop from teenagers to adults and develop a genuine partnership in the best sense of the word.
I hope that warmth, joy and love comes through in their story
