malgorzata & jostein | bryllupsfotograf oslo wedding photography


i had the pleasure of documenting the wedding of marga (that's what her friends call her) and jostein's lovely wedding in oslo earlier this month. it was a day of true celebration as the two families were united. marga's family is of polish decent and a lot of traditional elements were incorporated into the celebration which made the day even more unique and special.

the ceremony was held in the the catholic cathedral, st. olavs domkirke, and despite the grand size of the building, the ceremony was both intimate and personal due to the warmth of the people present. 

the reception was held at bogstad gård, which is an old old country estate dating back to 1649. the manor was quite spectacular and it was a joy to be able to spend time exploring the grounds with the bride and groom.

for those of you interested in gear, most of the images in this post were shot with the new leica m and a summilux-m 50mm f/1.4. a pretty good combo, if i may say so.

i hope you enjoy the images and please feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below (not to mention sharing them with your friends.).



the sound of silence


quick fix

...or maybe not.

first, let me apologize for my silence. it's been a while and i know. i'm painfully aware of it. i've got good reasons, though, if you'd care to hear me go on and on about the immense amounts of work that has been the last month or two...or four...or six. the story of my life - work. but hey - i'm not complaining. ;) i'm explaining, all right?

this post. i'm making it for a reason. i'm not on a rant. the holidays are coming up. they're breathing down my neck like lucid electricity. i have no idea where that example came from, but that's what you get for writing a blog post at this hour.

i'm excited. why? i've been recording tonight. that's why. not original material, however, but a cover song. a beautiful cover song. and if - i'm saying if - you've been a good boy or a good girl or maybe even if you haven't been very good at might have a little treat coming your way. for free. while we're still in 2010. thats right. reason to get excited, yes?

so - let's hope the stars align and inspiration strikes like sledgehammer. i will feed the rhythm. keep your fingers crossed and make sure you come back soon.
