At Suomenlinna with Karo & Kimmo

engagement shoot portraits travel

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 amount of locations and variety you have at Suomenlinna.

Thank you, Ester from Viaporin Cafe, for the hot chocolates and a place to warm us up!
Looking forward to Karo & Kimmo’s wedding next year! Great time doing the pre-wedding shoot with you!

A family shoot with our neighbors next door, featuring a nearby cornfield. Underestimated the lack of space there, as the crop is soo beepin' high. Anyway, here's the pics.

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).

The b-roll from Bankeryd
This is how we approached the day of Pia & Joakim at VidaBlick, Bankeryd. Plus... a bit of a cartoonish slideshow for them to look at while they are waiting for the album ;) Ella and the doggies. The bride's mother being the soul of the evening at the barbeque the night before. Sigrid checking out the cargo parachute to see if we could incorporate it into an interesting shot (which never happened on the wedding day with a first rank storm warning). And the best man insisting to take a portrait of me and not taking no as an answer while handing me the glass. The stuff that makes you remember it.
