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!

Kristi & Lauri – family portrait shoot in Piusa
We’ve been friends with Kristi and Lauri for 10 years (well, Sigrid, for a little longer, but in our age who’s counting anyways!). It has been one hell of a decade to look back on, both in the lives of these two troopers as well as our own. We’re all married (finally :D)! We’ve grown into responsible adult status - some better than others! Our hair colour and interests have changed, but there are things that will hopefully stay the way they are for ever. 1. We will forever make plans for summer vacations, even when we know they don’t fit into anyone’s calendars! 2. Kristi and Lauri will remain in love till the end of time! 3. We’ll keep m ...
