A brilliant summer eve with Maria & Martin

engagement shoot

As it occasionally happens in this part of te world there are some summer evenings when you are left untouched by rain, or as some people like to call it, light showers. On one of those evenings our dedicated crew of two set out for a pre-wedding shoot.
Having reached the designated spot we were met by a stunning view while a certain air of adventure a.k.a horse poop reminded us to watch our step.
And then there were the two – Eston and his calm and collected mother Carrot – who didn’t seem to mind the company of their two humans Maria and Martin too much. Not even when Martin decided to try and lay Eston on the ground, not when they went for a quick swim for the first time in the nearby lake, not when they brought out their joyful bundle Liina or even when Maria just casually decided she would wear a dress and ride without a saddle.
It sure was fun!

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.

Welcoming spring with Carly & Jussi at Nuuksio
I'm happy to say we NEARLY got lost on the twisting roads of Nuuksio, before we met Carly & Jussi. Nearly. They met at the London 2012 Olympics. Apparently there was an orchestra to mark the occasion - one member from each of the countries participating at the Games. Carly plays the French horn and Jussi is a percussionist. It's obvious that Nuuksio is a place to go if rugged forest-filled terrain, lakes and pathways are what you are in for. Not bad for a location an hour's drive from Helsinki, huh?

Engagement shoot at KUMU & Kadriorg
We met Pavel and Jekaterina at Taagepera at the end of September. They immediately agreed to do a pre-wedding shoot with us. Locations-wise, we couldn't really come up with too many too fast, so we thought (as many other wedding couples in Tallinn), let's go to Kadriorg. But Kadriorg also comes with KUMU (the Art Museum of Estonia) with all its great architecture. So it happened that we spent most of our shooting time last Saturday within the KUMU courtyard and nearby locations. KUMU was not the last good thing that happened to us. After the couple had filled out our engagement shoot questionnaire, we were happy to find out they had 2 four ...
