Matias + Anna // 2014
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Matias and Anna have a unique story… Matias is from Finland, and Anna is from Australia… So the wedding was a mixture of aussies and finns, and you can only imagine what that as like! This is how their love story went, according to Anna, “We met in 2010 in Lausanne, Switzerland on a Christian youth program, YWAM (Youth With A Mission). We started dating soon after and even though we went back go to our homes (Sydney and Helsinki) we maintained a long distance relationship via Skype and spent all our money on flights going back and forth whenever we had any! In 2012 Matias moved to Australia for a year and in 2013 he proposed (under a beautiful tree lit up with fairy-lights by the water). Then it was my turn and we moved to Finland for a year before our wedding.”
Their wedding took place at an awesome venue right on the sea near Helsinki, check out the photos below!

Iitu + Joni // 2014
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Engagement shoots are always interesting to be apart of… Usually you’ve never met the couple, and everyones a bit nervous… With Joni and Iitu, it took about 1 minute to get comfortable with them… They were super relaxed, talkative, and just had a good time together… They are an awesome couple and are about to embark on an adventure together in Canada… We had the privilege of shooting the engagement photos at some awesome locations… First in this grain field near the sea, and then on these cliffs that overlook the islands of Turku.
Check out the photos we managed to get!

Noora + Antti // 2014
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This was a super awesome wedding I had the privilege of shooting this summer here in Finland… Finland is an incredible country to be shooting in the summer as the sun literally doesn’t set, so you have long, sunny, summer nights… Noora was a friend that I had met in my college years, and she had kindly asked me if I would shoot their wedding…
It was so awesome to see that Noora had found someone who she was so passionately in love with… I remember her saying on the day of, “If I knew all along that Antti was the man I was going to marry, I would’ve been able to wait another 5-10 years!” It was really great to see a couple who were so in love and excited to start this new chapter of life together.
Congrats Antti and Noora!
