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!

Stephanie & Derek at Tallinn Old Town
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.

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.

Pre-wedding shoot with Pia & Joakim
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 ...
