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.

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 ...

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.
