Wedding at Engelbrektskyrkan - Johanna & Dennis

Dennis proposed to Johanna 8 May 2009 and exactly one year later, 8 May 2010, they said "I do" at Engelbrektskyrkan in Stockholm. Johanna was beautiful and the team at Arnelids did a great job with her hair and makeup. Johanna hadn't booked me for preparation photos, but I actually went to see her anyway because I passed by on my way to the last minute photo session planning. Was that a good thing...? YES, because I got these shots on my 15 minutes visit!

They had planned for a sunny spring wedding but the dark grey rain clouds didn't agree! So, even though we actually started the portrait session outdoors, after a while we had to go to plan B. But of course, we couldn't miss to take some photos under a beautiful pink cherry tree!

Johanna assured me she doesn't photograph well and that she wouldn't look like all the other model-look-alike-brides I have on my blog. Well, what can I say, I sure think she's one of them!

Less than a week ago I bought a lens I have thought of buying for a long time, Canon 85 mm f1.2L. I used it for all portraits above, for some of the detail photos and also for some of the photos in the church. It's heavy, VERY slow and using f1.2 most of the time really is a challenge, but for portraits I love it!
