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?

Engagement shoot at Keila-Joa with Karin & Peeter
A few weeks ago, when the golden hues of the maples had not turned brown yet, I had the chance to have an engagement photo shoot with a fun, cheerful and live-life-to-the-fullest type of couple. Because their engagement story involved no less than the Etna Volcano crater. As I'm not really a native northern coast person, I offered a few locations beforehand. Keila-Joa was one of them, as I had briefly been there before for one of my interior photo shoots. Here are the views, laughs and heaps of leaves we managed to capture.

A brilliant summer eve with Maria & Martin
As it occasionally happens in this part of te world there are some summer evenings when you are left untouched by rain, or as some people like to call it, light showers. On one of those evenings our dedicated crew of two set out for a pre-wedding shoot. Having reached the designated spot we were met by a stunning view while a certain air of adventure a.k.a horse poop reminded us to watch our step. And then there were the two - Eston and his calm and collected mother Carrot - who didn’t seem to mind the company of their two humans Maria and Martin too much. Not even when Martin decided to try and lay Eston on the ground, not when they went f ...
