Bröllopsfotograf Stockholm – Meet Cherrie

My work and goals
Photography to me is as much about history as it is about the present. My mission is to create works of art with my photography that not only record present events in people’s lives, but also to create family history and memories for those same people. I strive to keep my work bright, happy and romantic and I shoot with a style that is a mix of Documentary and Lifestyle which leans more towards the Fine Art end of the scale. I look to work with people who value photography as an important part of recording their life and also people who like to do things a little more on the fun creative side, so I aim to make working with me a fun experience that you will remember with a smile.
As with all artists, I have personal goals I would like to achieve and some of those goals are certain types of photo-sessions. It’s a personal dream of mine to do a photo-shoot at a place like Gröna Lund in Stockholm or Liseberg in Göteborg and I have always wanted to photograph a Military Wedding and a 1920’s themed Wedding and a wedding in a Vinyard. Do get in contact if you also have a dream like this you would like to see in pictures. Maybe we could make it happen together.
A little bit about me personally
I love to travel and have been doing it since I was 17. I love polka dots. I love dresses. I love shoes. I love the colours purple and pink. I have been having a love affair with the American South for as long as I can remember and one of my favourite books is To Kill a Mockingbird. I looove coffee, but can’t really drink it because it presses my fast forward button. If you want to see me talk at warp speed, give me a white chocolate mocha. I’ll not only love you for it, I’ll love you for it in fast forward! I normally stick to tea, though.
I love watching sci-fi shows. Nerd pride. I waited 28 years to find the love of my life and now that we’ve found each other I couldn’t imagine life without him and I can’t remember what it was like before him. I have a Golden Retriever named Bentley who is a bigger snuggle pot than a teddy bear. I love hugs. I love to read: photography, travel and history are my favourites, but I’m really not as boring as I sound, I read crime to be more exciting. I spell favourites with a ‘u’ because I am Australian even though it might look a little weird to people who use American English. I like to create new verbs out of existing words. Like right now, I am biographing myself. I also like mixing words, like Purplicious and Pinktacular!
I like to name things. Like our car, Maggie: because the licence plate reads ‘MGE’. My camera is named ‘Henri’ after Cartier-Bresson, because I think it’s better than just plain old ‘Canon 5d’. I love animals, especially dogs (and ESPECIALLY my Bentley) and coo over them like most people do with babies. I also coo over babies. I love photography and I love weddings and I am absolutely blessed to be able to love my profession.

“We hired Cherrie over the phone to be our wedding photographer in early 2011 for our July wedding in Stockholm, and I couldn’t have been happier!! From the onset, Cherrie was a gem- she demonstrated a strong commitment to her work; she was reliable and friendly, and she made sure we were not only leaving confident in her ability but that we had all the necessary information. I couldn’t have appreciated that more, as I did not have a chance to meet her until just a few days before the event!
Fast forward to the day; Cherrie was incredibly skilled at getting all the right shots we had discussed, putting everyone at ease, and blending into the hubbub of the day so that we had the most perfect, candid, memories of our wedding. She has an incredible eye for detail and a great sense of light. The end product was full of amazing shots! Needless to say, I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Cherrie to anyone – but want to go out on a limb here and say that if you are planning a destination wedding – there is no one better!!”
– Jennefer & Jonas
“Hej! Vi satt tillsammans framför datorn igår och tittade påde fantastiskt fina foton du tagit! Vi är jättenöjda!Vi har hittat vår framtida fotografoch det är du! Är glad över att jag upptäkte dig på bröllopsmässan. Vi kommer behöva dig fler gånger i framtiden. :-)”
– Fairytale Bride
“We are so happy for the beautiful pictures you sent to us on the DVD!!!! Just lovely. The lighting and clarity in the pictures is just amazing! It will be hard to selectpictures for the ‘thank you cards’. If John and I would someday have a baby, I want to pre-book you for the babyshower! Thank you so much for doing a great job on our wedding day. Your warm personality and professionalism really made both of us feel much more relaxed than what I had expected!”
– Annika & John
“Cherrie fotograferade min 1-åriga dotter och mig i gröngräset en av höstens allra sista ljumma dagar. Det var en rolig, avslappnad och mysig eftermiddag. Hon fick oss fort att känna oss bekväma framför kameran och bara vara oss själva.
När jag såg bilderna blev jag aldeles tagen och till och med tårögd. Cherrie har fångat hennes bedårande personlighet, nyfikenhet, charm och min kärlek till henne. Jag är grymt imponerad av bildernas höga klass, och då tänker jag inte på främst det tekniska, utan på förmågan att förmedla känsla.
Jag tar ganska mycket bilder själv med min lilla kamera, så jag hade inte tänkt att gå till någon fotograf. Därför är jag så oerhört, oerhört tacksam att vi fick denna plåtning i gåva. Annars hade jag missat chansen att föreviga min dotter på detta sätt. Den här ljuvliga småbarntiden kommer aldrig tillbaka men jag har en dvd full av bilder som återger den känslan av närhet, samhörighet och ren pur kärlek!”

“Cherrie did a wonderful job photographing our wedding. She was more than patient and accomodating with every request, change of mind and idea that came to mind when planning our special day. When our photos were given to us we were surprised to see some wonderful candid shots that we didn’t even know had been taken. She was not obtrusive at any time during the day, in fact, most of the time we didn’t even know she was there. Having known Cherrie for many years and observing her artistic talents as they developed over time, we had the utmost trust in her to deliver the results we were looking for. There really was no other choice for out wedding day.”
– Kate & Dan Lowery
“Having Cherrie photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
She took her time before the actual day to ensure she knew exactly what we were looking for & also to suggest her own artistic ideas.
On the day, she made my camera-shy husband completely at ease, helped calm my own nerves as I arrived on the day & captured hundreds of beautiful shots without us really knowing she was there.
When we received the images, wow! She captured our special day perfectly. Thanks to her amazing talent, we now have absolutely stunning photos to remember our day by.
All in all, we received professional, personalised & friendly service loaded with artistic talent & photographic expertise.
The only problem I have now is picking out my favourites!
– Tanya and Jonothan Sullivan
“Cherrie Coutts is a wonderful photographer. She makes the time to get to know you and your style before the big day. Cherrie will take direction, but also use her creative eye to capture some wonderful moments. All our wedding photos were amazing! We would highly recommend her to any bride and groom.”
– Kelly and Cliff Kratzing
“I wanted to get some portraits done of my son and myself on his first birthday, but I knew I didn’t want your average family photos. I wanted them to be special and different. My son was also a quiet child and I knew if I went to a studio he would be too shy and unable to really relax. Cherrie was able to come to our home and do the shoot there. Cherrie was warm, open and very patient and it took no time at all for my son to be completely comfortable with her. Cherrie had taken the time prior to the shoot to think about ideas that would make the shoot both individual and personal. She was organised and made the shoot move quickly so my son didn’t lose interest, however, it was not rushed in any way. My son and I really enjoyed the shoot and I honestly couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Cherrie has an amazing ability to capture beautiful images that are full of the subject’s own personality and if you are looking for a wonderfully talented photographer, then look no further!”
