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.

Vivian & Rainer on horseback
Vivian used to ride when she was a kid. And Rainer was up for it when we had lattes with them, discussing their plans for the wedding. That's how little it took to make an afternoon like this happen, with tons of excitement. Of course, we were lucky enough to have Maria & Martin refer V & R to us, and the stable of Tooma (Tooma Tallid) as well.

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.

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 ...
