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 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).

Asti, my brother’s GF
Even though she has a personality to die for, I'm really struggling to find the words to describe her. Partly because, yes, I don't want to sound cheesy or corny, but also because the superlative of any positive adjective wouldn't still do justice to her. OK. What I most value about Asti is the way she speaks to people, looking you in the eye as if there is nothing more important in the world that very moment than your ramblings about the weather, lawnmowers, fattening desserts, or anything. She is the favourite of all children alike, never missing a chance for a mini soccer match (even though she is a ballerina, for cryin' out loud!) or r ...

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.
