I’ve tried to put together a text for this post a few times now, but no matter what I write, it doesn’t feel like the words do the journey justice.
I spent the entire month of June travelling around Europe and Africa for work. But it was more than just photographing weddings in exotic countries. It was five weeks that had a huge impact on me, both on a personal and a professional level. Even now, a couple of weeks later, I still can’t wrap my head around that it all actually happened.
From shooting weddings together with Ed Peers and Jonas Peterson in beautiful Florens and Lipari, Italy, to documenting Heather and Mike’s honeymoon in Edinburgh, Scotland, photographing Mo and Chad amongst lions and elephants in the Masai Mara, Kenya, being at Emma and Rikard’s incredible wedding in Österlen, Sweden, and telling the story of an international gathering of people at a castle in Lorraine, France – it really was amazing beyond words.
The five weeks on the road went by fast, but the memories will remain for a long, long time.
A huge thank you to every single person I met and got to know during this trip. Your generosity and hospitality meant a lot to me.
Look forward to sharing the weddings, but for now, here are a few rolls of film I shot to some tunes that were with me the whole time.
