The wedding shoot
Getting into wedding photography which is a new concept for me, I needed to do a promo shoot. In a meeting with the local bridal-dress-salon, Eva Brud, they got me in contact with the couple Lene and Erlend who actually got married last year.
They were excited to get a chance of getting a new set of photos and spent an entire day with me for this shoot.
We were fortunate with getting help and sponsors for this take.
At Fiin Frisør, Tina was fixing Lena's hair for the day. This is also how an actual wedding morning looks like in the salon.
Over to the church, we were not able to take photos inside, but I think we were able to get some nice exterior shots. The car is a one-of-a-kind Mercedes in Norway. My brand new B2 lights from Profoto went out with a nice touch inside the car. On the outside I used 1 B1 with a 2x3 RFI SoftBox.
At the Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim we made an inside-a-suite shoot for wedding celebration.
In the afternoon we went over to the oldest, yet classical Britannia Hotel for the evening shoot. In the staircase I wanted to create a 1960-ish style and feel to it. The modern sliding doors gave very nice reflections on both sides. Inside the classical red room we made the dance shoot.
To top the day, my idea was to bring in something really special - a signature shoot on a truck inside a quarry. It was really cold and, of course, it started raining when we were finished setting up all the gear. We kept Lene inside a car to stay warm. To create the intense red light on to the rocks, I needed some really strong lights. The solution was with my friends at Trondheim Lyd - Lysverket. They're specialists in concert lighting, and I got two enormous lights for the job.
I think the photos from the full day shoot came out really well, and will be used as promotional photos for my new wedding photography concept, Foto til Bryllup, as well as for the participants' marketing.
