Best of 2018

Best of 2018

Wow, hvor skal man begynne? 2018 har vært det mest innholdsrike året i mitt liv! Det startet i Australia, hvor jeg vekselvis fotograferte bryllup i 45 varmegrader, snorklet med skater i det Indiske Hav, håndmatet ville kongepapegøyer og prøvde som best å ikke bli drept av slanger hvor enn jeg gikk. At det avsluttes blant dalende snøflak i en hytte på Voss, etter å ha flyttet på tvers av kloden, giftet meg med mannen i mitt liv, og fotografert 20 fantastiske brudepar, føles rett og slett rimelig surrealistisk.

Jeg startet året med en rykende fersk Bachelor of Photography og et brennende ønske om å bli min egen sjef og leve av fotografi. At drømmen skulle gå i oppfyllelse så raskt, hadde jeg ikke engang turt å håpe på. Men her sitter jeg, da. Året har tatt meg rundt tre land på to kontinenter, til kriker og kroker av vårt eget lille Norge, og latt meg bli kjent med så mange fantastiske mennesker. Det har bragt meg inn i det talentfulle fotograf-nettverket til Blikkfangerne, og gitt meg de kollegaene jeg alltid har savnet når jeg jobber for meg selv. Jeg er så utrolig takknemlig for alle parene som har valgt å legge tilliten sin i armene til lille meg. Uten dem - uten dere! - hadde jeg ikke kunnet leve drømmen min.

Nå gleder jeg meg vanvittig til et nytt år! Jeg er klar for å lære mer, jobbe hardt, forbedre meg, bli flinkere, og skape enda bedre opplevelser for kundene mine. Men først - her er noen favorittøyeblikk fra året som har gått!

Familiefotografering med en tvist

Denne gjengen her har en ekstra spesiell plass i fotografhjertet mitt. Jeg kjenner mormoren i gjengen, Kjersti, gjennom vår felles kjærlighet til hester. Kjersti var liksom “mammaen” i stallen - alltid smilende og full av omsorg for oss unge, dumme stalljentene. Allerede da var jeg jo fotointeressert, så det hendte at jeg dro kameraet med i stallen og på stevner. Kjersti hadde troa på meg, og da jeg var 16 år fikk jeg æren av å fotografere bryllupet til datteren hennes og hennes utkårede (som har rukket å bli tobarnsforeldre siden!). Det ble aller første gang jeg turte å tenkte på fotografi som en mulig karrierevei. Jeg skulle jo bli veterinær?! Men her sitter jeg altså, som fulltids fotograf i eget firma, og jeg er så takknemlig for denne gjengen her som plantet det frøet.

Og nå ville de altså ha familiebilder, hele gjengen! Mormor, morfar, døtre og ektemenn, og hele ungeflokken. “Vi er ikke noen sånn poserings-familie”, sa de. Neivel, sa jeg! Da griller vi marshmallows, drikker kakao, og løper rundt i skauen. Og sånn ble det! Drakamper, klatring og bro, bro, brille gjør nytten mye bedre enn poserte familiebilder gjør, uansett. Det lønner seg å bare omfavne kaoset!

Damaris+Nick: Stunning wedding at Another Place (Lake District National Park)

Damaris+Nick: Stunning wedding in The Lake District

Every single marriage is meaningful. Yet, sometimes I'm lucky enough to be part of something that is just so overwhelmingly full of purpose, history and love that it leaves an extra deep mark. This was such a day. It’s a story of incredible coincidences and a great splash of luck.

Damaris' grandmother used to spend her summers at the Treasure family home by Lake Ullswater as she was growing up. But, the house left the family many, many years ago., and the family spread out across the world. And still, one September weekend this year, they all gathered back in Lake District National Park, and Eliza Treasure, at the age of 91, got to witness her granddaughter get married in the very same house she grew up in.

Nick and Damaris both have their roots in the UK, but they live together in Australia. Last year, they were holidaying back in their home town Manchester. As they were sitting down for a pint at the local pub one day, they got talking to a stranger. This stranger was the new owner of the old Treasure home, and he told them he was turning it into a hotel, called “Another Place”. Nick and Damaris weren’t even engaged at this point, and yet they couldn’t do anything else; they booked their wedding venue right there and then.

Fast forward a year, and their families gathered from all around the world - New Zealand, Australia, America, Canada and all over Europe - for a weekend of reunions, guided house tours led by grandma Eliza, and one of the most beautiful celebrations of love I have ever been part of. You don’t want to miss this one, I promise.
