WHAT:   The Beloved Collective Photography Fesitval is unlike any other gathering on the planet. No cliques, no high-school politics, just three days of non-stop connection, exploration, inspiration, education from leading photographers, visionary minds (even extraordinary trailblazers from other fields) and an entire years worth of fun! This is an experience that will feed your heart, supercharge your mind and push the boundaries of what’s possible in your business and life! (Join their FaceBook community to keep in touch with the latest developments)

WHEN:   September 10-12, 2012

Another glorious day

Gozo, Malta, Monday 9.13 AM.

I wake up to another sunrise and for a second I don’t know where I am. I look up and the Maltese cross above the window brings it all back to me. I’m here to shoot an elopement, so I won’t give away their names, but I can tell you it’s a beautiful day for a wedding. Malta is a bit windy and stormy today, but I’m sure it won’t matter in the end. From what I hear it rained on my wedding day, but I can’t really remember, I had more important things to focus on. I want to sit down and tell you about my own wedding day, but it’s all still a blur, so I need to get home first to gather my thoughts.

Today I’m getting ready for another glorious day, just like I was getting ready for Therese and Oscar’s wedding day just two days ago on Ekerö outside Stockholm. Sitting on Malta overlooking an old church on a hill it feels almost absurd that I shot a wedding in an apple orchard in Sweden less than 36 hours ago. Today I’m shooting another one in a citadel on an island outside Malta. My little family is sitting on the couch next to me.

Please don’t pinch me, I really don’t want to know whether my life is a dream or not.
