Laura from Germany & Ahsan from Pakistan got married last Saturday at beautiful Riddersviks Gård. It was the hottest day so far and we were in a blooming paradise with butterflies and guests flying in from Islamabad, Hamburg and Paris. In her speech, Laura’s mother told them that they had overcome many obstacles, and that two families from different cultures had come together and learned to respect and love each other. What at first seemed daunting turned out to be a great happiness. She ended her speech by quoting Shakespeare “Everything will be fine in the end, and if it´s not fine, its not the end. I ended Laura and Ahsan’s wedding photography by asking them to jump in the lake yesterday Sunday morning. When I mentioned my idea, Ahsan said “Ok Kicki I will do it, but you must remember that I am not a good swimmer”. I will add that picture later on. I drove straight up to my cabin by the coast after the wedding weekend and will edit more after a few days rest.
A butterfly wanted to be in the picture.
Email from Laura yesterday:
Finally I find the time to give you some feedback and opinion on the received pictures.
Thank you so much once again for being part of this for us so important day!
What you captured through your eyes & lense is amazing. We are so happy with the result and gonna have incredible memories supported by all these special moments you saved & held tight for us..
I always felt like I wasn’t photogenic at all and I must admit I was a bit worried about how the couple pictures would turn out to be before the wedding. But now I realise that it makes such a big difference when you feel comfortable with the person who is taking your photos – when you feel like you don’t have to act. All the couple pictures are just awesome! The feelings, the postures, the moments, the background & settings, and after all our mimics & body language that you were able to catch. These photos couldn’t be more us, just like that whole day was, as well!
We adore all of them and for me it is hard to say what is going to be my personal favourite.
The pictures of the location, details during that day & the guests are beautiful, too! You also made us see some sceneries we would have never experienced in such busy day. Thank you.
The only criticism I might have is that the focus on the guests is not quite even from my perspective. It feels a bit concentrated on a few guests who had more outstanding outfits and were more extrovert than others. But it would have been nice to see some of the other people more often on the pictures, too. Probably time & set up didn’t allow that and they didn’t show up as much.
dear Kicki, all in all we thank you a lot. You did a great job and we hope to see you again!
Take good care of yourself and I hope you will enjoy the rest of the summer.
My warmest regards,
