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.

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 ...

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.

Triin & Robert – Wedding at Sagadi Manor
Two weeks ago, we witnessed a wedding most elegant, a couple most confident, a weather not the most encouraging for outdoor portraits, but a speech unlike any other we’ve heard. From Robert’s father Benediktas: “50 years ago I met a beautiful blonde Estonian girl. Now, 50 years later, my son is getting married - to a beautiful, blonde Estonian girl, of course.” Many congrats and thanks for having us there with you, Triin & Robert! The wedding team: Venue: Sagadi Manor (sagadi.ee, sagadi@rmk.ee) Coordinator: Rūta Raišutyte The dress: Oksana Mukha Florist: Helle Väärsi Catering: Caviar Catering Wedding moderator: Hannes Lents DJ ...
