At the gym with Mai & Aaro

engagement shoot

Mai & Aaro are obviously not the couch potato type. A look at those abs leaves no doubt. But what made their portrait shoot stand out was that they wanted to have it in the gym. So why not – available light (that needs some support from the trusty silver umbrella), check, various backgrounds, check, something a bit different from the usual walk in the park, check.
Here’s how it worked out (pun intended).

Stephanie & Derek at Tallinn Old Town
In addition to being 9 degrees Celsius in the second half of June, we had just another bit of luck with Stephanie & Derek, who came all the way from Hong Kong. It rained during the whole session. Steph & Derek wanted to save the memory of their trip to Tallinn - thus our session at Tallinn Old Town. Despite the bravery of the couple we decide to have a cup of mint tea and the delicious sweet almonds at Olde Hansa in the end.

Seaside moments from Laulasmaa with Nele & Urmet
This is from the middle of October, right beside Laulasmaa Spa, on the beach with pine-shaded sandy pathways. Nele & Urmet look like the sort of couple who don't let a busy life get in the way. They had their kids along, which made the shoot much more energetic and less controlled (in a good way, i guess) than it would have been otherwise. But even with the kids hustling and bustling around with sticks and stones, there is a romantic calmness to them as a couple. Looking forward to photographing their wedding next year.

Mette & Flemming – engagement session in Vejle, Denmark
After a day in Legoland in Billund, filled with carousels, attractions and ice-cream with our gang of 5, including grandma, I take a 30-minute bus ride towards the eastern coast of Denmark, to Vejle. It was unbelievably warm for a workday evening in the end of august. This meant we could walk and talk and shoot happily until the very last rays of sunlight. Meet Mette & Flemming and their family of 4.
