Pre-wedding shoot with Pia & Joakim

engagement shoot

On Nov 28 last year I got an email from someone called Pia from Sweden. It was a wedding inquiry like many others. But it would be our first one in Sweden.
Fast forward a day or so, with some specifics on travel arrangements etc, Pia is including her husband-to-be – Joakim – in the email thread on the Cc field and then comes something in Swedish:

Herreguuuuud vad fint! Jag gråter juuuu här!!!! Vi måste ha dem, vi måste!

I know what “Tack!” and “God morgon!” mean, but this was above my skill level. After a bit of Google Translate, I realized this was one of the most positive emails I had ever received. Not so much because Pia & Joakim are our first Swedish couple, but because they seem to really connect with the way we shoot.
Long story short – we’re going to the Swedish countryside this summer.

For the pre-wedding shoot, Pia and Joakim came to spend some time in Tallinn on the Easter weekend. Below are the images that resulted from having a good time in the Old Town, fiddling with some accessories from the TALI design shop and warm drinks at Pegasus.

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?

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.

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 ...
