Surprise Anniversary Session

...when you think you're just walking to the anniversary dinner

This was a very special occasion to shoot in a very special way!

I was approached by Pia, a colleague photographer for whom I captured motherhood photos a few years back, with a request for a surprise city couple session as she and her partner celebrated 20-year anniversary.

The plot twist was to capture them while they would be walking towards the restaurant for their anniversary dinner from their hotel room, which is about a 25 min walk!

planned to the tiniest detail

So how can something like that actually go down?

Because we only had about 25 min for the whole thing and they would walk a specific route between the hotel and the restaurant, I had to work with what I had and plan our stops along the way effectively.

We would start at Malmskillnadsbron that goes above Kungsgatan in central Stockholm and walk down to Sveavägen. I got to the spot an hour before our meeting time and checked every little corner looking for beautiful views and interesting perspectives.

Show Time!

We met at Malmskillnadsbron (the bridge in central Stockholm) and that's when Pia actually revealed to her partner that they would be having a mini couple session as they walked towards the dinner spot! I wanted to preserve the natural vibe to their photos and really wanted them to feel relaxed.

Even though, it was a rush afternoon hour, they managed to get lost in each other with a bit of my guidance and enjoyed the moments together in a way that made it possible to capture all these beautiful natural moments!

surprise that keeps on delivering

The story doesn't end...

Pia wanted to surprise her partner once again with a finished gallery that they could look at together in their hotel room once they came back from the dinner!

And so I took myself to the nearest coffee shop, made a selection of the best pictures and expressly edited their happiness!

I'm glad to report that the whole session was a huge success and I was honoured to get to document something so original and special. ♡
