Mikaela & Patrik – Wedding on Kökar, Åland – vol. 1

weddings

[intro]If you don’t have a sailboat or a friend that owns one, it takes the better part of 2 days to get to Kökar from Estonia. It’s a 2,5h ferry ride away from the Finnish mainland, same from the main islands of Åland.[/intro]
But it was totally worth it. If you are looking for cliff-lined vistas and hidden beaches, this is the place.

This is part 1 of the story of Mikaela & Patrik. The island is where Patrik spent his childhood. So it was a day with people close to them, in a place close to them.

The getting-ready was not what you would see in a busy hotel room. More like 2 close-by family homes filled with chit-chat, laughter and a touch of nervousness where Patrik got ready 😉

Rifdi & Aliah – vol. 1
OK, so WE are inland people. And seeing the sea is a magical, even mystical, experience for us. It kinda lures us towards itself. Like Sirens we hear the crash of waves and can’t help but go towards it. I just could go on and on about the sea… Rifdi and Aliah are from Singapore. But somehow with the help of Instagram and the stars being aligned just right, they found our dynamic duo and then some Skype calls later we made a pact and all of a sudden end of July ended up driving towards the southern coast of Sweden to shoot our very first elopement session. Picture that - us, from Tartu, Estonia, and them, from Singapore, Malaysia, getting tog ...

Pia & Joakim – wedding at Bankeryd, Sweden
We’ve never really experienced anything like the last wedding in Bankeryd, Sweden. I’ve said before that Iike to get to know and even become friends with the couple I’m shooting for. But I never thought I’d actually miss being a tiny part of the community they have, helping with a bit of DIY and setting up the venue the day before, seeing the guests arrive. The moment that stopped me in my tracks was when it was about half an hour after midnight. I said to Joakim who had just arrived from the dancefloor with Pia, that if there are no more cigar events to shoot, we’ll be hitting the bed. In reply, among the many thank-you’s, he said - “We’re ...

Triin & Robert – Wedding at Sagadi Manor
Two weeks ago, we witnessed a wedding most elegant, a couple most confident, a weather not the most encouraging for outdoor portraits, but a speech unlike any other we’ve heard. From Robert’s father Benediktas: “50 years ago I met a beautiful blonde Estonian girl. Now, 50 years later, my son is getting married - to a beautiful, blonde Estonian girl, of course.” Many congrats and thanks for having us there with you, Triin & Robert!
