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.
