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!

Of course, we were lucky enough to have Maria & Martin refer V & R to us, and the stable of Tooma (Tooma Tallid) as well.

Taking memories vs taking pictures
Oftentimes I find myself flipping through a select bunch of photo-related RSS feeds. Yesterday (can't remember how exactly... ah, there it is, it was something like 9 wedding photographers shooting on film), I stumble upon Samm Blake's website and see her minimalist and poetic personal work, mostly from travels. Obviously GAS kicks in and I Google which cameras/films she is using. And find myself reading the interview on skiptownonline.com. I get the answer to my question - she is fond of her Contax 645, Mamiya 6 and Olympus Trip. But a more important and thought-provoking section was how she describes her most memorable travel experience. ...
