Vienna Trip // June 2019
Espoon Kartano Wedding
Vienna was MAGICAL. And we fell madly in love with the architecture in the city. We spent a few days wandering through the city and taking photos of some of our favourite spots, so I figured I would share it with you all.
Traveling and experiencing completely new places makes life interesting. What’s your favourite part of traveling?
St. Audries Park Wedding
Joonas and Samira’s wedding day was full of joy, laughter and the good kind of tears. The phrase “made for one another” doesn’t even begin to cut the feelings that were so clear for this couple.
I first met Joonas and Samira at Love Me Do last year. These two had seen me post something on the event stories, and they came to find me. Immediately we had a connection, and as they walked away from my booth, I just KNEW that they were going to be one of my couples this year.
Mustikkamaa in Spring
THIS DAY WAS A DREAM. Honestly I cannot even begin to describe the joy I felt watching Meg and Craig tie the knot in St. Audries Park. This wedding venue was phenomenal. Perfect setting for the perfect day.
I met Meg and Craig while I was living in Plymouth. They worked at a bakery in Royal William Yard, and I live there. Craig provided me with my daily dose of caffeine every single morning and after a while a friendship started to blossom.
Intimate Garden Wedding
The other week I got to have a wander around Mustikkamaa in Helsinki with one of my couples who are getting married this year. We talked about life, passions and had a good laugh. We took some photos of them just being them out in the nature as the flowers bloomed around them and it just made me so so grateful for them and being able to play a small role in telling their story to the world.
Helena & Christian
When Nicky first contacted me, I was hesitant to accept the job as usually I don’t photograph weddings that are 3 hours long, but as we kept talking it became clear to me that this couple was MADE FOR ME.
Another thing I quickly learned was that this wedding was going to be relaxed and very personable. And I immediately jumped onboard…
Deepa & Paul
Helena & Christian were such joys to be around during their engagement session last Autumn! We had such a blast roaming around some of my local hoods in Espoo, and we actually ended up going to a spot where they had one of their first dates as well!
Nuuksio Styled Shoot
Deepa and Paul are honestly two of my favourite people, and I have known them for about six months. But it wasn’t until last week that we really got to hang out and get to know each other. We went out for lunch (in the form of pancakes for Deepa and I), and went to a few pubs while bonding over our mutual love for Guinness.
Olivia & Justin
It has been snowing like CRAZY all over the world, but especially over here in Finland. This winter has been so so so beautiful and this blanket of white has given us such beautiful light during an otherwise pretty dark period of time. So of course I decided to take advantage of all the beauty and set up a styled session in the snowy goodness!
Thao & Miro
Olivia & Justin were such joyful and energetic people and I am so glad that I got to spend some time with them running around the Old City of Jerusalem last year. When we met, they were months away from getting married and we honestly laughed 97% of the few hours that we spent together, getting to know one another and frolicking around cobble stoned streets.
Nava & Emmanuel
Thao & Miro responded to a couple call of mine for a mentor session I held in Helsinki, and boy oh boy was I glad that they did! These two were so young and in love that it was contagious! We frolicked around downtown Helsinki and I made them dance around through crowds of people while the Christmas lights flickered in the background.
Laura & Tuomas
When I think of how to describe Nava and Emmanuel’s connection, BUBBLE OF JOY comes to mind. These two couldn’t stop laughing whenever their eyes met and we had such a great time of general merriment throughout our time wandering through the streets of Yemin Moshe in the heart of Jerusalem, Israel.
Viivi & Topias
In the late summer of 2018, I had an amazing opportunity to photograph one of the cutest newlywed couples EVER - Laura & Tuomas in one of my favourite cities in Finland.
Tyler & Tyler
THESE TWO. Firstly - she has the greatest name (and happens to share it with me), and secondly - these two are the cutest. We spent a good couple of hours one summer evening roaming around Suomenlinna together, laughing, joking and running around all over the place.
Holly & Zach
This December, Kieran and I headed over to the states and got to meet some incredible people. While spending a few days in Austin, I got to work with some of the most talented individuals to create some PURE MAGIC in downtown Austin.
We rode in to Helsinki by bike around midnight and strolled through the streets, and to our surprise the sun didn’t even SET. It slightly dipped on the horizon and at 3:30am it popped straight back up and gave us all these BEAUTIFUL golden hues!
