Stephanie & Derek at Tallinn Old Town

engagement shoot

In addition to being 9 degrees Celsius in the second half of June, we had just another bit of luck with Stephanie & Derek, who came all the way from Hong Kong. It rained during the whole session.
Steph & Derek wanted to save the memory of their trip to Tallinn – thus our session at Tallinn Old Town. Despite the bravery of the couple we decide to have a cup of mint tea and the delicious sweet almonds at Olde Hansa in the end.

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 ...

Engagement shoot at KUMU & Kadriorg
We met Pavel and Jekaterina at Taagepera at the end of September. They immediately agreed to do a pre-wedding shoot with us. Locations-wise, we couldn't really come up with too many too fast, so we thought (as many other wedding couples in Tallinn), let's go to Kadriorg. But Kadriorg also comes with KUMU (the Art Museum of Estonia) with all its great architecture. So it happened that we spent most of our shooting time last Saturday within the KUMU courtyard and nearby locations. KUMU was not the last good thing that happened to us. After the couple had filled out our engagement shoot questionnaire, we were happy to find out they had 2 four ...

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?
