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.

At Suomenlinna with Karo & Kimmo
Possibly the last one of this year's pre-wedding shoots - the one with Karo & Kimmo turned out to be definitely amongst the most adventurous. While we did have some indoor locations in mind, we decided to take a risk and have a go at Suomenlinna - the group of islands that spans 3km and is a 15-minute ferry trip away from downtown Helsinki. While Karo & Kimmo sure do have a kind of Nordic calmness to them, we got quite a few laughs and good shots from the session. We were lucky to have some mid-november snow, because if we didn't, the amount of available light at 4 pm would have been... well, non-existent. Which you can't say for the amo ...

At the gym with Mai & Aaro
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).
