An ICEHOTEL wedding has been on our wish list for many years. The legendary hotel in northern Sweden is renowned as a luxury ice paradise. So when Yining and Aloysius booked us for their icy adventure, we were obviously excited.
Yining and Aloysius came first and of course were the reason this all happened. However, Fujifilm asked us if we were able to make a film for an exciting new lens for the GFX system – the new Fujinon GF 45-100mm f/4.
So we pieced together the details, made sure Yining and Aloysius were fine with the film, and a new layer to the adventure was added.
Team & Gear
This is the third movie we’ve made with Fujifilm, and the second time we worked with Remi from Maru Films. The first film with him was done in Rome a few years ago.
Initially, Monika Frias was going to do the film, but due to an unfortunate ankle problem had to pull out. However, she did the final edit using Remi’s footage and we love the work they did together.
For those into gear, both the stills and the film for this were made with the GFX 100 body, which is basically the most insane camera imaginable. Using it was outrageous – it really is that good.
All the images were edited using Mastin Labs presets. We’ve only used Mastin Labs for many years now, and they compliment Fujifilm files perfectly.
Finally, Lundhags and Crud are Swedish companies who appear throughout the video. Crud makes incredibly stylish leather gloves and the last camera strap you’ll ever want to own. Lundhags the boots, jacket and pants which basically stopped some serious cold from happening while up in Kiruna.
