{wedding} Dave & Alarna

The places I get to see, the people I get to meet.

That’s what it’s all about.

And sometimes you don’t have to travel far to visit new and remarkable places. This time all I had to do was jump in the car and drive an hour from my house.

I ended up in Esk.

And on this very special day, in the world of Dave and Alarna.

Phenomenal in a way I’ve ne’er seen before.

Jonas + dinosaur tables = this kind of awesome.

What a brilliant wedding!!!

Beautifully captured as always. Love the shot with the couple int he doorway and the confetti shot is beautiful also.

Love the ambience created, amazing coverage bro,

loving the ceremony chair, so awesome.

Yeah, im gonna say it. For me this is your best yet. Plus one of the guests was rocking an SX-70, right? Also, the kartwheel in the field shot is just perfect!

That entrance shot into the reception hall/barn is just plain epic!

I burst out laughing when I scrolled down to the groom cartwheeling. Just so perfect.

wow, jonas. SO many photos, so many favorites! Well done. You really know how to tell the story! I love the shot of his cartwheel!

[…] Och så här blev det där bröllopet till slut. […]

i just thought, “i could write a script to go along with this post”. that means you’re really good at storytelling with photos, i think.

My mind is blown. So damn beautiful, Jonas.

The photos are just as good as the wedding itself. Perfect match.

Lovely wedding. Beautifully captured as always, Jonas.

So in love with your style J.
And what a beautiful wedding!!


*starts saving her pennies*

Så grymt så man blir mållös…
är så avis på dina härliga bilder…

vem är killen som sjunger

Decir GENIAL es quedarse corto

This is by far the coolest wedding pics I have ever seen. Gives me something to work towards.

Dave and Alarna are so stylish, it makes me wish I were Australian.

Unbelievable, Jonas. Just perfect!

Amazing Jonas like always, the song is to short I play it 2 times..:)

Speechless, so sooo amazing!

i am still obsessed with your “the entrance” image. absolutely left me speechless. love that song too.

Gorgeous in every way possible.

I die. Amazing Jonas. What a great sense of style and humour these guys have!

Anyone know where they got those chairs? Amazing!

Love the natural beauty of this wedding. There’s a simplistic earthiness to it. Tastefully captured as always.

Ridiculously good. Makes me want to scream. I’m going to scream…

Bloody hell, Jonas. Your images makes me want to stop art directing and become full time photographer. At the same time they makes me wanna sell my camera and never take a picture again.

Standing ovasions. Again.

Jag blir sååå inspirerad av dina bilder. Ljuset. Lekfullheten. Ögonblicken. ALLT. Du har ett fantastiskt sinne för detta. Tack för att du delar med dig!

Que preciosidad ¡¡¡¡

So many great pictures Jonas!!!

oh wow. oh wow! so beautiful. can you please tell me what song that is playing? It’s so so beautiful. It’s incredible how a stranger’s special moment can be so emotional for one…wow, so beautiful is this life. This connection. xo

The song is called “Kids on the run” by Tallest Man on Earth.

hello from norway!

beautiful photographs. i’m sorry for asking but do you blur any of your images in post or do you use tilt shift lenses a lot? if so, which one(s)?

i’d love it if you took the time to answer.

incredible man. this wedding is sure to inspire photographers to be better and those who are engaged to plan a perfect wedding – because this one is pretty darn close to being just that. grattis till ett annat fantastiskt jobb!

What an eclectic wedding! Everyone looks like they are having a great time.

I think u wanted to say:


Photos are aesome!!!

Amazing work, Jonas! Dave and Alarna were lucky to have you there. And how awesome that it all happened just up the road…

@Morgan: 45mm tilt shift.

So good my friend…. i just fell back in love with my country a little bit

really really REALLY amazing. i know its been said 1000 times, maybe more. But you are a genius with light, truly.

Truly amazing work! As usual… Love love the bride and groom portraits.

love that cartwheel action!

Omigosh. I think this is my favorite of yours yet… there is no one else with your style, Jonas!

You are the Ingmar Bergman equivalent of wedding photography.

CRAZY GOOD!!The one where they are in the doorway is exceptional.

bride with mustachio – brilliant :)

I love the mood of your images. So easy to look at, almost soft (not in focus but feel). You have inspired me many times in the past and I look forward to keeping an eye on your work.

Your best work yet in my opinion.

Astounding Jonas! Well done as always!

OMG – this is out of this world…

Du har fotat många otroligt vackra bröllop, men det här är nog det av alla som griper tag i mig mest. Fantastiskt!! Och vilken UNDERBAR bildberättelse!!

Off the charts crazy good Jonas!

Stunning, Jonas. Absolutley stunning! Love the bride’s headpiece.

Absolutely amazing! Love the location and the cute couple!! Congrats to them!!

This is awesome, all of it. What a couple! Love the one where he’s “hjular” (don’t know the English word for it, but the gymnastic thing in the field), the details, and every single image.

Oh my. The light in your work is amazing. One word: Respect.

it is such a calm and loving feeling over this whole wedding.

Jesus, dude! You make me want to hang my camera up. I just kept scrolling in disbelief at how well you interpret light and see things. Fantastic work through and through Jonas. Really.

wow. this wedding looks so so so so good. awesome job, jonas!

Love authentic couples and authentic weddings. Great pictures man!

Man, your story telling is amazing. I felt like I was there…


You shoot the COOLEST weddings! Excellent work!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful and stunning images Jonas, you constantly inspire me to be a better photographer

I can’t even being to describe the brillance that it is this wedding. I love the way you told their story.

Great story, great capture.It’s so cool to see a groom do a handstand like that!

You are a genius.

sooo good to look at and great song to listen to while viewing them.

Just a word… FANTASTIC

I do always love coming to your site Jonas. Loving the fun details the couple chose for their wedding day!

många speciella ögonblick ifrån dina ögonbilder.

en fröjd för ögat.

Tack !

That would have to be the most beautiful Wedding I have ever seen…..and the most wonderful photography!

Amazing pictures! I love the light in the picture of the couple dancing.

Absolutely love it! If I were to get married all over again, this is what I would aspire to. And the photos are half-bad either! Amazing work as always.

you’re always fantastic… this is kinda special though. just beautiful. i think the shot of her holding her shoes might be the best shoe shot i’ve ever seen… but, way too many other faves to mention.

A very cool wedding – Love your captures of this beautiful couple!

Great shots! Pleasure to watch.

you have the coolest clients in the world.

WOW!!! Fy fasen vilka härliga bilder!! Och vilket mysigt och oerhört vackert bröllop, känns som att man var med själv när man titta på alla bilderna. Är själv helt galen i att fota. (på nybörjarstadie – både jag och min kamera ;D).
Good luck with everything =D

That shot with the couple walking into the “Coronation Hall” is fabulous! Incredibly cinematic and dramatic!

I don’t know how you do it, but these are timeless images. As if taken a hundred years ago. All those antique details and clothes. And the people and the ambience.
And then the dragged shutter photos from the reception, like a Larry Fink or a Bruce Gilden. I don’t know if the two styles match, but I don’care.
I could stay in this world forever.

WOW.. amazing details and gorgeous portraits!!

That handstand (cartwheel?) shot is my favorite wedding photo ever.

Coronation Hall. Enough said. Amazing as always.

Ok, I just noticed the cloud on the groom here. So awesome. And the chairs. I still love the chairs.

Amazing work! such an inspiration for me.

I really love the soft light you get over there, it makes all your wedding photos look soft and inviting. Thanks for the post, really stunning shots.

Outstanding. Inspirational. Well done.

Outstanding.Inspirational.Well done.

Otroligt vackra bilder!
Blir väldigt sotis på alla dina kunder…
Är det okej att jag lånar ett par bilder och länkar till dig från min lilla blogg?
Hej från Göteborg!

Galet bra!! Allt känns så iscensatt och regisserat som en novellfilm eller reklamfilm. Finns det sådana här bröllop på riktigt? Hur som helst du äger, behöver du en assistent så säg till :)

The cartwheel! The barn entrance! The blindfold! My heart melts for these two, and for your stunning photos.

Hello Tiffaney Niemeier right here, that was in fact weird. I just composed a really long comment at https://jonaspeterson.com/wedding/wedding-dave-alarna however once I clicked on post my own opinion didn’t display. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that words once more. Anyhow, simply wanted to express excellent blog website!

I love all of these. I love the couples style!
