please note that this post is not sponsored by Olympus, however I am officially
one of their ambassadors now and have a long term contract with them
The highest peaks had been hiding in the low hanging clouds, the fishing did not produce much and the night before it was rainy and so windy that I thought our little red cabin with grass on its roof would fly away. Then it was like there was some magic in the air. On the day of the wedding I wake up to clear blue skies, crisp air and sunshine. I enjoy my morning coffee on the porch just looking out over the fjord feeling so happy.
The mountains are standing tall, strong and proud, as if they know that two wonderful people (who have been coming here for many years enjoying the nature) are getting married at their feet.
I have not known Amanda for long, but I love her and her passion for nature, her amazing energy, what she does for raising awareness about the small town she lives in (the place where I was born but left as a child). The way she raises her son Erik and the way she seems to have so much fun with Markus all the time, and how supportive they are of each others dreams and professions. They’re such a wonderful, inspiring family to be around.
It has been exactly one month since they said yes to each other amongst the fjords, and I feel so grateful and blessed that our paths crossed and that I got to be there that day. I am honoured that I got to capture this beautiful day, preserving it forever with photographs. Truly magical!
I recently became an Olympus ambassador, and as I wrote in my previous post, my Nikon equipment is getting to rest for a bit. After only using my new Olympus gear for about a week I took a scary decision to shoot this wedding using it – and it went great!
I am in love with the cameras, the lenses and the photos I took. All photos are shot on the OM-D EM-1 MKII & OM-D EM-5 MKII using the 45mm f/1.2 PRO, 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO and 17mm f/1.8 premium As an official Olympus ambassador I can offer you the code ‘northbound‘ which gives you a 15% discount at shop.olympus.se. But enough of that, I will let the photos speak for themselves now:
After a calm morning with meditation and getting ready in good company of friends it was time for Amanda and Markus to see each other for the first time. Marcus stood waiting out on the pier with two of his friends. Slowly Amanda starting walking out towards him.
There was only sunshine and the silence of the fjord. Then laughter, kisses and joy as he turned around and saw his beautiful bride. It was a magical, strong and touching moment.
After they’d laughed, cried and kissed and just… taken each others appearances in we drove up to a hotel located at higher altitudes. Here, with the sun shining warm and the massive fjords sprawling in the background we took some portraits of the two lovebirds.
