I can’t even begin to explain what an honor it was to shoot this wedding. Jakob is one incredibly talented photographer who shoots weddings all around the world with his company Nordica Photography. Besides being good friends, I have to say that they’ve been an inspiration to me and I’m so happy to see how successful they’ve been at their craft. When I was starting out I remember how much both Jakob and Cole supported me and what I did. They’ve been wonderful people to get to know and I am grateful for having them in my life. When Jakob asked me to shoot his wedding I was blown away. It meant more to me than words can describe.

When I arrived in Sweden I met Alexandra for the first time. She quickly made me realize how badly I needed to exercise. Being a dedicated yoga instructor and fitness enthusiast, I got to see what discipline and dedication was all about. She was also incredibly sweet and both Jakob and Alexandra made me feel like family while I was there. I love you both and I just want to thank you again for trusting me to tell your story.

Thank you to Cole, Therese, and Embla for hosting us at your home and showing us some of the amazing sites around Sweden. You guys are amazing.

Another thank you goes out to my good friend Amari Kenoly for documenting this story with me. I have to talk about this guy really quick. He’s seriously one of the most loyal friends anyone can have. When I need someone I can constantly rely on, he’s my go to. He’s always got my back no matter what and to top it off, he’s incredibly talented. Please take the time to check out his work and show him some love.
