Best 5 of 2015 - Sokk & Butlers Weddings

Best 5 of 2015

weddings

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, just about to step out of the hotel room with her mom, head for the church to give her wedding wows, in tranquil almost zen state-of-mind. Something that rarely happens at weddings as far as the bride and preparations are concerned. But I guess that is just the way she is. Truthfully.

“I have made it a rule to not smoke more than one cigar at a time” – Mark Twain

When the formal bit (yeah, I know the “bit” lasts for hours, but it DOES pass us in a flash (no pun intended!)) is over, the surprises do not stop. I guess it’s hard to get over the heat of the moment, particularly when you’re the bride or the groom. It is truly relieving to know that there are people who take care of you offering a bit of rest and recreation… And a cigar!

M & A

One of the most daring couples we’ve had to photograph so far. The idea for the yoga-inspired photoshoot came as a real inspiration. And they really did their homework to look their best: I’m talking a week’s worth of body pump classes, push-ups in the room next door…and the spark between them! Whoohoo, they were smoking hot!

The adventure before us

A Wedisson Award winner. This was shot on the way to the wedding venue, on a pier in Pirita, Tallinn, Estonia. We knew beforehand that the couple wanted a few shots there, with the view to the city. What I could not have hoped for was the dramatic sky that afternoon.
At some point during the Big Day of each couple there is a moment they relax, stop worrying about the small things, and just ride the wave of the wedding day.
I guess the importance of that shot for Pavel & Jekaterina, besides the view itself, is that after we left the pier for the venue, that moment had arrived. And Jekaterina walked down the aisle alongside his father with a big smile.

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 ...

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!

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 ...
