SWEDEN ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHER
WHOLE DAY ADVENTURE COUPLE SESSION WITH ALICE AND CARL
Lake Vänern, Kristinehamn, Sweden
Dear Alice & Carl,
we have no words to describe how amazing this trip was to us and how
grateful we are that we could meet you two and your kind family.
How we laughed all day when Carl was telling jokes,
you’ve shown us so many new places and told us their stories.
Thank you for E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!
Remember this post about sunset beach at a beautiful lake in Sweden?
Well, that was just us warming up. The next morning, we got up at 3:30 am
to catch the golden glow of sunrise and we drove to Ölme near Kristinehamn
to take a morning walk and breathe in some fresh Swedish air,
stopped in the middle of the road to watch creepy cows staring at us
and cuddled below birch trees. The light was truly amazing.
Afterwards, we did a quick stop at the Moor forest to see
if we can find any smultrons, since Alice is crazy about them.
There weren’t as many as we hoped for. We visited a cute little
pet cemetery nearby and continued our trip back to Kristinehamn.
Once again, the morning light was perfect for taking a few portraits!
Next, we took a stroll down Kristinehamn Farmstead,
a small historic area open to public, which is, according to Carl,
something very typical for Sweden. We really like Swedish buildings
and their cooper red color. Take a look at the pictures to see
how much fun we had in this beautiful location.
What we did next was shopping at the ICA Maxi store and,
of course, we had to play around with the shopping cart. 🙂
Then we visited Carl’s family right on time for fika,
traditional Swedish coffee break served with many delicious
homemade sweets. Jani loves coffee and sweets, so you
can imagine how excited he was finding out about fika. It
has become his daily routine here in Slovenia. After fika,
we took the opportunity to rest a little bit in the backyard
and make a few lazy shots at the cute garden green house.
Refreshed and eager to continue our adventure, we explored
the woods nearby. Scandinavian forests are breathtaking!
We want to go back to Sweden and shoot a boho wedding in the forest.
In the late afternoon, we decided to visit a local farm.
We are all animal lovers, so this was a really nice visit.
There is a beautiful Österviks chapel right by the farm,
worth taking a peek. The main reason for visiting this
farm were alpacas, but at first they were hiding in high grass.
Just as we were about to leave, they approached the fence
and made us laugh so hard. We absolutely adore alpacas since
our fall trip to one of the Austrian’s alpaca farms last year.
Our last adventure ended where it started the day before,
at the lake Vänern. This time, we were on the outskirts of
Kristinehamn, in a district called Sunnäs (it means Sun spit).
You could feel the rain was coming, it was cloudy and very moody.
Although we were all so tired, Alice and Carl ran around and into
the lake, they “borrowed” a boat for a few shots and ended our
whole day Swedish adventure couple session with champagne,
celebrating their love and Carl’s achievements.
