Inspirational photographers: Jonas Peterson.

I randomly stumbled across Brisbane-based wedding photographer Jonas Petersen a couple of weeks ago, through a link on a car forum.

I don't know how I haven't come across his work before; after clicking through to his blog, was absolutely blown away by the most recent wedding post which was at the top of the page:

Over the past few years I've looked at an enormous amount of photography on the net, including quite a lot of wedding and portrait photography. While excellent work isn't out of the ordinary, it takes a lot to stand out as being truly special and unique.

The epic location, with the ceremony taking place alongside a lake and forest in Sweden, certainly wouldn't have hurt the chances of getting some good shots. However, his use of light, framing, shallow depth of field, perfect timing and composition produced some phenomenal images.

There's one photo that stood out as being something different (you'll know it when you see it) from the usual 'girls blowing bubbles' photos that get taken quite often. Not only does he have a single floating bubble in sharp focus, in the background he's captured the exact moment of a hug and smile between what looks like the groom and father of the bride. 

But it's hard to pick a favourite really, the whole set is stunning. With photos like these, I would imagine he's booked solid for a while.

Plenty more photos on his blog here:
