At Suomenlinna with Karo & Kimmo

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!

Jag gråter juuuu här!!!! Vi måste ha dem, vi måste! I know what "Tack!" and "God morgon!" mean, but this was above my skill level. After a bit of Google Translate, I realized this was one of the most positive emails I had ever received. Not so much because Pia & Joakim ...

3 adventurous souls
Meet 3 adventurous souls - Jenni, Toni and Muru, the pitbull. All looking fab and in love. We'll be getting back to the Espoo seaside to shoot Jenni & Toni's wedding at the beginning of August. Counting the days. Spring brings out the best in Nordic people. You know the feeling the first days of spring give you when you have to open the front of your jacket, not to get too warm. The sun makes everyone and enerything fresh, mellow and easygoing.

How we went camping by the seaside
A few pics from our camping trip to the north coast. Tipping toes in the water eventually resulted in a wave soaking Bosse head over heels and a quick run to the tent for a towel. Images by me and my lovely assistant.
