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.

Sille & Arvo – wedding at Viljandi Fort Ruins & Vanaõue
How come it (almost) always rains during your wedding morning and clears up by noon? This is how it happened this time as well. The pinch of nervousness was absolutely in both of them when getting ready. Usually it's the bride, but this time it was Arvo who was on his toes all the time. We did a few portraits before the ceremony and he was sure we had been there for 20 minutes while we were 5 minutes in. But it turned into a happy kind of excitement with every minute we got closer to the ceremony and all seemed to go well after all. This was one of the weddings you remember by the small emotional moments happening throughout the day. The ...

Karoliina & Kimmo – Wedding at Glehn Castle, Tallinn
Last Saturday was the day for Karoliina & Kimmo. I will cut to the chase and say up front that both of them were a bit reserved in front of the camera on their own. I was even getting some nerves on when I got the feeling that they were rushing through the schedule. But you can’t blame them - as it was a bit of a destination wedding for them, coming from Espoo to Tallinn. It was the same story when Sigrid was with Karo on the getting-ready. The first true smile she saw from the bride was when they had a few minutes with her mother to have a glass of champagne before heading for the church. You could see the mother being proud. And it see ...

Mikaela & Patrik – Wedding on Kökar, Åland – vol. 1
[intro]If you don’t have a sailboat or a friend that owns one, it takes the better part of 2 days to get to Kökar from Estonia. It’s a 2,5h ferry ride away from the Finnish mainland, same from the main islands of Åland.[/intro] But it was totally worth it. If you are looking for cliff-lined vistas and hidden beaches, this is the place. This is part 1 of the story of Mikaela & Patrik. The island is where Patrik spent his childhood. So it was a day with people close to them, in a place close to them. The getting-ready was not what you would see in a busy hotel room. More like 2 close-by family homes filled with chit-chat, laughter and a ...
