Parfotografering London svensk fotograf

        Barnfotograf Stockholm

        Portrait session with you and your partner, that’s what an engagement session is. Your choice of outfit and venue will create romantic, soft photographs to cherish forever.




        Already when making the request via the booking form, I ask you to tell me what type of photographs you dream of. Who are you, what kind of products should the images result in, what is important to you? By telling as much as possible, I can prepare the photo shoot in the best way, everything from the choice of location to lighting.

        Well cared for

        Every year I photograph a limited number of assignments, I have chosen to keep the number of assignments down in order to give my couples the best possible service before, during and after their photo shoot.


        Quality always comes first, I take great care to only deliver good images, both from a technical and aesthetic perspective. You get your own web gallery, so it's easy to download and share your photos with your family and friends.

        How to pick a location

        For your engagement session


        What if it rains?

        First of all, don’t get stressed out. The weather can change the last minute. If possible, reschedule to another day. If that’s not possible due to your schedule or if we’re shooting at a destination location, consider to book an indoor venue.

        When shooting Asher and David in New York, it was a dark and cold January day, so they decided to have their engagement session at The Met.

        When shooting Jessica and Matte in Paris a day in November, the rain was literally poring down (it was crazy!) almost the entire day on us and we couldn’t reschedule. Just bring an umbrella (and prepare to hug quickly on command;).

        "I never look good in photos. Never."


        HOW I WORK

        YOUR TASK


        If you aren't super comfy in front of the camera, I'll guide you through the entire session telling you how to walk, hold hands, look at each other, etc. When you get guidance on how to act, you relax and start focusing on each other and how you move, instead of how you look. By following my instructions combined with focusing on your partner, you will feel relaxed. I always tell my couples that their focus during the shoot is to make sure their partner gets as much love, compliments and positive feedback as possible.

        I have been working as a portrait photographer since 2008 and consider it my job to make sure you are relaxed during your photo shoot. I am convinced that you will love your photos and my goal is that you will leave the uncomfortable feeling behind you as soon as we start shooting. The secret? All my couples tell me they want candid photos without posing. The thing is though, very few of us are comfortable in front of a camera so I pose my couples. I will never ask you to "do your thing" and then wait for you to come up with something (like, what is that?).

        If I had a dime for every time I've heard the phrase 'I never look good at photos' :) Trust me, I know how it can feel in front of a camera, with a person you don't know. Then add wanting to look good and ... hello performance anxiety! I know what it feels like to be uncomfortable and if there's one thing I value, it's making sure my couples feel comfortable in front of my camera. It is incredibly common to feel nervous before your photo shoot.

        By focusing on encouraging your partner, you will shift the focus from being nervous about how you look in the picture to creating a cozy experience together with your favorite person. Imagine wearing good looking clothes, in a beautiful place and getting compliments and hugs for an hour or two. And you get it all on photos, so that you can relive what you felt over and over again over the years. That, my friend, will be your engagement session experience with me :)


        Clothing suggestions for your engagement session

        ∙ If you want bright photos, we'll be looking for light background and venues. I recommend bright colors for your clothes: white, light beige, light gray. All muted, light pastel colors do all look very stylish on photographs and usually matches well.

        ∙ A common mistake is that couples dress individually. Try out the clothes in front of a mirror and see how you think they combine together. Click here to find out what I mean :)

        ∙ Don’t choose clothes the same day as the photo shoot (and don't bring to many outfits, you'll just get decision anxiety) and remember that less is more.

        Choose clothes for your engagement session with care. The clothes, with its colors, style and material makes a huge impact for the outcome of the photographs. In this guide I go through the most common questions I get about clothing choices and I hope you will feel inspired for picking outfit for your upcoming photo session.

        ∙ A timeless, simple cut, white shirt will look as good in 25 year as it does today. If you choose a timeless outfit, the most important in the photos (that would be you!) will stand out even in the future. The outcome is that you'll be able to enjoy your portraits and not be embarrassed about your outfit.

        Planning your engagement session

        Make a day out of it!

        Don't stress

        Plan so that you have enough time to decide on an outfit, style your hair and not have to worry about traffic and so on. Make sure you don't come to the photoshoot stressed, it's not the best start to have a cozy time together:) Why not schedule a lovely breakfast and lunch in a place you like, it adds a extra luxury feeling. Make sure you have the whole day together for quality time and compliments, it will be amazing and something you will remember later when you look at the pictures together.


        Rise and shine!

        Plan to shoot during sunrise or sunset if you want soft, beautiful light. Being an early riser gives your photographs without too many people in the background, something that is difficult to avoid at sunset if it is a big city that your engagement session is taking place. Shooting indoors? Make sure the venue has high ceilings, light walls and plenty of light. This way you get bright pastel photographs, which you can see in my portfolio.


        Photographs for generations

        Consider to use a professional hair and makeup artist. He or she will make you look your absolute best (and if possible: use the same one that you’ll be using on your wedding day, it’s a great time to do a test run!) Less is more. Keep it simple, classic will always be classic in terms of outfit, location and props.
