Wedding photographer in Stockholm, Sigtuna and Arlanda

First First look at the Chinese and Swedish wedding

Photography at Stockholm, Sigtuna and Arlanda weddings

I had the privilege of photographing a wedding ceremony and wedding reception with Chinese traditions, in Sigtuna. In the image above is a moment from the first look, when Mengjia and Xiuming got to see each other just before the wedding. Swedish and Chinese traditions met on a fine day. The wedding couple chose a nice wedding album / wedding book from Album Epoca, which I designed for them. We also made fine-art print on genuine Canson paper, as art for the walls of the home. Big congratulations!
