Kjersti & Asbjörn’s Wedding at Haga Park, Stockholm

Sometimes, Murphy’s Law likes to rear its head and test our sanity. You know, to see if you can handle life. Well, on this fine Stockholm day, Murphy’s Law not only reared its head, it almost washed us away in its torrential rain!

Kjersti & Asbjorn first met years ago and decided to take a trip to Stockholm from Norway, so what better place to bring your closest family and friend’s for your wedding!? I was lucky enough to get the job as their Photographer and when I met them they just beamed with happiness. So, when the big day came around and Stockholm’s skies decided it was time for wind, thunder, lightning, hail and drenching rain storms my Assistant, Jenn and I were ready. Decked out in wet weather gear, we waited on the dock at Stallmästaregården for the wedding party to arrive.

At first, everything went swimmingly (pun intended) and we were able to let the wedding party go after starting with the group shots, because the rain was only getting harder. But right before we were to steal away the couple for their private portrait session, a small window in the sky opened and let in some sunshine! We started shooting by the water and as we made our way up to the gates to Haga Park I felt something weird happen in camera. I didn’t think too much of it until after we had gotten to the little birch grove I wanted to shoot at, took my first shot and then… nothing. NOTHING happened. So, I changed lenses…. and still nothing. That’s cool, I thought to myself… I’ll just grab the backup camera. So I head on over to Jenn and ask for the backup and she dutifully hands it over. I turn back around ready for action and… nothing. Uh huh. Nothing.

I think it was at this point that I started to think the batteries had failed or the memory card had died… and we tried EVERYTHING to get the cameras working… to no avail. My heart crushed into tiny little pieces as I had to turn around to Kjersti and Asbjorn and explain to them that I was having MAJOR technical difficulties. The look on my face said it all and Kjersti’s first words were “Oh my gosh, are you okay?!”. And that pretty much sums up how amazing these two people are. They were more worried about me and my cameras than their own wedding.

With my heart shattered and my voice filled with emotion I told them what had happened and that I was needing to source another camera and to my absolute astonishment Kjersti says to me “That’s okay, just come back when you get another camera and we’ll continue. I think Asbjorn will be happy to get out of his shoes.” (He had developed horrible blisters). I was so shocked at her easy going response I could have married her myself!!

So… off we shot to try and get another camera. Scandinavian Photo did answer, Goecker was closed, most of my friends used Nikon… I thought I was screwed until a colleague of mine finally answered her phone and said we could borrow her camera! The day was saved! We headed off on a 12 minute drive to Täby, grabbed the camera and came back to finish off what we started. It was still pouring with rain right until the very end of our session when some beautiful light came shining through the rain… I saw it through my lens, yelled “Oh my gosh, THE SUN!” and went sprinting towards it… as I looked back Kjersti was close on my heels! I’ve never seen a Bride as excited about light as I am, before! It was golden!

So the story has a happy ending. And who would have thought that BOTH cameras would fail in the same moment?! Turns out it was the shutter in one camera (which has now been fully replaced) and one single faulty battery in the other. I think it’s safe to say I will be carrying THREE camera bodies with me, now! Perish the thought!

Here are the results from that eventful day. I can’t thank Kjersti and Asbjorn enough for their kind hearted and caring nature. You two really are special people and I hope you’re enjoying married life. 🙂
