BRAD & JOE // COPENHAGEN ELOPEMENT
Copenhagen WeddingS & ELOPEMENTS Photographer
Copenhagen Elopement // Joe & Brad contacted me after they saw one of my weddings published on Junebug Weddings. All the contact between us was done via email and Skype as I am a wedding photographer based in Stockholm and they live in Chicago. We finally met up in Stockholm at the start of their whirlwind trip around Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway and Denmark). We met up for coffee on the little hipster island of Södermalm and then we decided so go take some pre-wedding portraits at an old football stadium. I am a true believer in shooting film (analog) so I brought along my 60 year old leica camera and a bunch of black and white film for the session. The session was a lot of fun and it was clear to me that their elopement in Copenhagen in 7 days time would be something really special.
Over the last couple of years eloping to far off breathtaking natural environments has been all the craze, which is fantastic however I do love to see couples choosing urban city environments for elopements as well. Copenhagen is just this and you can easily spend a whole week exploring the colourful and charming streets in the city centre or drinking overpriced coffee in hipster Nørrebro or getting your cultural fix at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Joe and Brad decided on their elopement last minute so they missed out on booking Copenhagen's City Hall in time, so we decided instead to spend the whole day taking photos and exploring the city and then once back in Chicago they would make everything official. The elopement day itself was truly an amazing experience and we visited some incredible locations. I am definitely a big fan of elopements and I can't wait to be back in Copenhagen for the next one!
