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.

The b-roll from Bankeryd
This is how we approached the day of Pia & Joakim at VidaBlick, Bankeryd. Plus... a bit of a cartoonish slideshow for them to look at while they are waiting for the album ;) Ella and the doggies. The bride's mother being the soul of the evening at the barbeque the night before. Sigrid checking out the cargo parachute to see if we could incorporate it into an interesting shot (which never happened on the wedding day with a first rank storm warning). And the best man insisting to take a portrait of me and not taking no as an answer while handing me the glass. The stuff that makes you remember it.

Best 5 of 2015
We could not help but still get caught a bit in the "best of" buzz. Cause these are like carved in stone in our minds. Queen of the world Sometimes it just so happens that in the middle of taking formal groupshots of family and friends you notice a fierce and confident bride, eyes sparkling and the veil moving like magic. All it took was 4-5 clicks of the shutter. Just a fleeting moment, filled with confidence and feeling gorgeous inside, as well as outside. Karo The truth is that all you need to do to get a good (read: truthful) portrait of somebody is to try and imagine what she is feeling at every given moment. Here is Karo, ...

Jaan Sokk Photography - custom handmade wedding albums with linen cover
Behold, the albums have arrived
The web is still not the only place where people view and show their pics. So I decided to give some wedding vendors and their couples an idea of what the experience of holding the memories in your hand should look like in my book (pun intended). These beauties are made by Marcin Bittner and his team at QTAlbums. Printed on 240g matte paper using a high-end 12-color inkjet. Available with linen, silk and leather covers in a rainbow of colors. Not only do they look fabulous, you can feel the quality of materials only by holding and viewing them yourself. 2 dressmakers and a wedding planner will be keeping these samples. Maybe, just may ...
