Riikka + Antti | Valokuvaaja Matilda, Photographer Mathildedal

Around one month ago we went back to Mathildedal with Riikka and Antti to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. Together we planned the photoshoot to be done at the same location than they got married. 
We were more than lucky when we got such a beautiful summer evening and it was a pleasure to take photos of these lovebirds. Thanks Riikka and Antti and next time after an year ;)
Enjoy the photos!

Wedding Photographer Dubrovnik, Croatia | Cristina + James

I think it was 1.5 years ago, when I first received an email from Cristina and James. When they mentioned that they were going to have their wedding day in Dubrovnik, I thought "why would they want to have a wedding photographer from Finland?" After our first Skype call I felt like I've known them for ages. Do you know the feeling when it just clicks with someone and you are ready to share your whole life story?

Last September I finally met Cristina and James face-to-face in London when I was attending a Wedding Photography Workshop as a speaker. After that, I couldn't wait for their Croatian wedding because of their fantastic plans for the whole trip. It was so nice to see how all the wedding guests from all over the world got together and became one big family. I personally felt very welcome to join their parties and it was so easy for me to accomplish my work. 

I am so grateful for this couple and their families for their trust and the opportunity to capture this beautiful story. This Finn right here is so thankful and I definitely hope to meet these folks again!

Anna + Matias | Valokuvaaja Naantali | Pariskuntakuvaus Turku

Viime syyskuussa Anna ja Matias juhlivat häitään Turussa, mutta valitettavasti olin varattuna jo koko päivän dokumentaariseen hääkuvaukseen kun he kysyivät mahdollisuutta kuvata heidän päivänsä. Sattumalta kuitenkin häitä edeltävänä iltana, sain kunnian olla mukana kuvaamassa yhdessä kuvaajakollegan Slawomir Urbanin kanssa Annan ja Matiaksen pariskuntakuvia Naantalissa. Ilta oli todella kaunis ja Naantalin kauniit maisemat sekä rakennukset täydensivät sitä. Vaikka Annan ja Matiaksen hääpäivään oli alle vuorokausi aikaa, olivat he todella rentoutuneita ja pariskuntakuvaus Naantalissa sujui varsin mutkattomasti. Kyllä tässä talven keskellä kaipaa pikkuhiljaa jo näitä kauniita kesä-/syysiltoja ja tuota kuvissakin näkyvää ilta-aurinkoa.
