Photography by maja paja

Since I have been rather lazy and uninspired with my own photography lately, I decided to start showing my inspiration sources here weekly.

I have to start with Maria Gudrun Runarsdottir or maja paja. Her photos draw me in every time. There's something so foreign, so mystical about each and every one of her pictures.

She has a cute little daughter, that she dresses in the most gorgeous clothing:

She lives in Iceland:


And she takes such fantastic photos of people. I always wonder whether it's the light in Iceland that makes the skin of the persons look so pale and ivory-like or if the people do in fact have that sort of skin tone...

Check out her stream. You'll probably spend hours..

my first wedding shoot

My first wedding shoot ever went surprisingly well. Although I was sweating like a pig the whole day long, the weather and light conditions were far from great and I didn't even have time to use the toilet or enjoy a meal, the end results turned out quite alright. The couple was lovely. So in love, so beautiful and so easy to take pictures of.

A few impressions:
