When Johnny, founder of Swedish fashion giant Acne, was told by his wife to be, Teresa, they were booking me as their wedding photographer, his reaction was, “There’s no way in hell we’re booking a Swedish guy who lives in Australia to shoot our wedding in New York, it’s outrageous.” Shooting the wedding over three days and nights in NYC was funny in many ways for me, the lead singer in my favourite Swedish band was there, film makers and musicians and people I’ve known about for years. At the end of the day it was like any other wedding I shoot, friends and family having a good time with people they love. And that’s what I set out to shoot. Like every other Saturday.

“We got our wine and ice cream as recommended but we were both so totally transfixed. I can’t even begin to thank you enough. Every image is so beautiful and you know I completely lost it as soon as I saw Nana and Poppy’s wedding photo and kept crying from there on. I’m famously not the crying type but I knew I was in trouble when I saw those preview images and burst into tears! All wedding photos are important but that was the last day I spent with my beloved Poppy on this earth and I’m so glad you were there with us. I need to rewatch it a few times without my hands over my face now. I feel so incredibly blessed to have you telling our story. xx”
