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.

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.

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?
