Juliana Wiklund/morethanwords.se- Li and Markus: blessed by the Gods!
Do you believe in signs?
Well, I do. I know it’s silly, but I do. And today it was almost like someone/something was trying to tell me to keep on believing them.
When I met Li for the first time, I almost dropped dead: how could someone so gorgeous be also fun, nice, kind and super friendly? Well, some days later I met Markus.
It was then I really did drop dead: he was fun, nice, kind, friendly and also drop dead gorgeous!!!!
Well, enough of dropping dead and let me share with you the amazing fairy-tale day we had today.
After meeting Li and Markus, I decided that their couple shots should be fashion inspired, so I spent weeks collecting every single catalog I thought would be a source of inspiration for their wedding day. When I got to Edsbergs Slott, where we would shoot their first pictures, I had an insight and saw their whole shot in my mind, like a video-clip (no, I was not on drugs-as you can see, I don’t need them to be this weird!).
I got out of the car and told my assistants that next time we shoot, we will bring music with us.
And then, twenty minutes later, Li arrived and while she was walking down a beautiful “allè” with trees on both sides, to meet Markus, music started playing! I’m not kidding! It really did! They were just putting up the sound system for a concert later on in the park, and decided to test the sound, just then!
It was a sign! We started laughing and the whole shoot was filled with this magical energy, and small portions of music that was being tested all the time. No wonder we got great shots. We even convinced Markus to look a little meaner, because he was looking way too nice and behaved for our “fashion” thing!
