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 😉

Karoliina & Kimmo – Wedding at Glehn Castle, Tallinn
Last Saturday was the day for Karoliina & Kimmo. I will cut to the chase and say up front that both of them were a bit reserved in front of the camera on their own. I was even getting some nerves on when I got the feeling that they were rushing through the schedule. But you can’t blame them - as it was a bit of a destination wedding for them, coming from Espoo to Tallinn. It was the same story when Sigrid was with Karo on the getting-ready. The first true smile she saw from the bride was when they had a few minutes with her mother to have a glass of champagne before heading for the church. You could see the mother being proud. And it see ...

Sille & Henri – wedding at Leigo
If I had to name the friendliest person from my usual daily corporate IT office environment, Sille is probably the one. If anyone manages to mess up, she's like "It's gonna be OK!". That kind of we're-here-to-celebrate-your-love attitude is what we felt that evening. But make no mistake, they didn't leave anything to chance ;) I mean Henri was all over the place alongside the decorator with the cordless drill like no one's business. Thank you guys for having us there for you!

Best 5 of 2015
We could not help but still get caught a bit in the "best of" buzz. Cause these are like carved in stone in our minds. Queen of the world Sometimes it just so happens that in the middle of taking formal groupshots of family and friends you notice a fierce and confident bride, eyes sparkling and the veil moving like magic. All it took was 4-5 clicks of the shutter. Just a fleeting moment, filled with confidence and feeling gorgeous inside, as well as outside. Karo The truth is that all you need to do to get a good (read: truthful) portrait of somebody is to try and imagine what she is feeling at every given moment. Here is Karo, ...
