Some days I truly live in a fairytale. This is one of them! Here is the photos from our epic photoshoot with Une Susrud in front of Heddal Stavkyrkje in Telemark. We spend many hours on this location and there was tourists all over the place, haha. The stave church is over 800 years old, and according to an old, local folklore, it was built by a troll named Finn. The church is filled with gorgeous wood carvings on the outside, and you can see the traditional rose paintings on the inside. Truly a remarkable piece of Norwegian history.
In the Middle Ages, we had over 1000 stave churches in Norway, and today there are only 32 left, and this is the largest of them all. Heddal Stave Church is one of them.
I’m so grateful for these special photos from a truly beautiful location.
