Rob & Irja’s wedding in rain and sunshine

weddings
Robert & Irja’s wedding on Aug 9 was in many ways special for us.

First, it was on Sigrid’s (my lovely assistant) birthday. Second – it was the first time for her as a second shooter on a full-day wedding. She’s been of great help on many of my shoots, but not to that extent. And she did quite a job if I say so myself – the bride’s getting ready shots for example.

Third – it was a lovely wedding, period. What I mean by that is I had the goosebumps (the same as during the actual day) when editing the pics from the reception and speeches, especially Robert’s heartwraming speech in Estonian (he is from UK). He had to check the notes and ask me about pronunciation when getting ready, but he did well.

This, and the resulting images we created, gave me an idea for a small surprise. I shot some video footage as well throughout the day, 5-10 second clips of different details and scenes.

Here it is – glimpses of the day in fast-motion, stop-motion and normal motion in just over a minute.

Thanks to the guys at Marmoset for building a great site for searching and licensing music! If anybody ever would ask me to shoot video and I would accept, heaven forbid, then this is the place I would go again to find the soundtrack.

Jenni & Toni – wedding at Långvik
We spent a lång weekend (pun intended) this August with a couple that has an awesome army of friends, the greatest of families, and frightening sets of back muscles. What made us remember the day (besides the tear-jerking speeches and the gorgeous couple) was the way Jenni made sure the evening was genuinely about celebration and relationships. Having had a good look at the worn-out printed schedule I grab from the camera bag, I ask her "There's no tossing of the bouquet?" She replies, with a slight confident smile - "Nope, no weddingy stuff!" I notice myself raising my eyebrows, but in a moment realize this is exactly how it should be. ...

Pia & Joakim – wedding at Bankeryd, Sweden
We’ve never really experienced anything like the last wedding in Bankeryd, Sweden. I’ve said before that Iike to get to know and even become friends with the couple I’m shooting for. But I never thought I’d actually miss being a tiny part of the community they have, helping with a bit of DIY and setting up the venue the day before, seeing the guests arrive. The moment that stopped me in my tracks was when it was about half an hour after midnight. I said to Joakim who had just arrived from the dancefloor with Pia, that if there are no more cigar events to shoot, we’ll be hitting the bed. In reply, among the many thank-you’s, he said - “We’re ...

Pavel & Jekaterina – the doxielovers at Kõltsu Manor
Pavel and Jekaterina are the type of couple you meet in the park on peaceful Sunday afternoons, walking their adorable doxies Kljopotchka and Palmotchka. They are modest, even shy at times, but when you get to know them, you’ll see that they are passionate about the things they love - food, science, travelling… and their dogs, of course! We were lucky enough to meet them in September and shoot their energetic doxie engagement session. But the most wonderful part for us was by far their special day at one of Estonia’s most ah-so-amazing manors, Kõltsu. As the mint-themed day unfolded before us, we got to know their wonderful friends and fam ...
