We were lucky enough to have the magnificent Katrin Greiling at this year’s Swedish Love Stories. In addition to recreating her impressive bar in our VIP area, she also took some great shots of this year’s event. If you do publish them, all we ask is that you credit the images to Katrin Greiling.

Here are a selection of high-res shots for download.
