Waimea| Kapiti coast wedding

I was so lucky to get to second shoot for awesome and lovely Rennee Cowley when she was photographing the wedding for Lisa & Andrew on December.
To me this was the first wedding here in NZ so it was so exciting to work for her and her wonderful couple. Of course I already had figured out that weddings here might differ little bit to typical Finnish ones but this was an excellent chance to get to observe local wedding ceremony as a second shooter. A huge thanks to Rennee and Lisa and Andrew for giving me this opportunity to be there and shoot for you!

Typically it was windy (like always in Welly) so the ceremony was held at the small garden of Waimea restaurant at Waikanae beach. I had been to this restaurant few times but never realized they arrange weddings and functions there as well. And how charming venue it was. Makes me want to arrange a party there myself.

Congratulation L&A one more time, it was so lovely to be there to witness your happy day!_DSC3111_DSC1624_DSC1631_DSC1691_DSC1716_DSC1725_DSC1721_DSC1733_DSC1736_DSC1717_DSC1756_DSC1759_DSC1772_DSC1776_DSC1812_DSC1763_DSC1829_DSC1844_DSC2027_DSC1873_DSC2021_DSC2095_DSC1943_DSC1923_DSC2157_DSC2160_DSC2142_DSC2137_DSC2125_DSC2112_DSC2061_DSC2053-Edit_DSC2048_DSC2037_DSC2202

Angela | Maternity shoot Wellington

Untitled-1_DSC7747_DSC7741_DSC7771_DSC7781_DSC7816_3_DSC7826-3Angela wanted some portraits of her beautiful family. And her beautiful bump. But there wasn’t much time left before the baby was due and weather didn’t seem to give us it’s best at all. So to make sure that we get at least few gorgeous maternity photos we decided to do two separate sessions. A quick shoot with Angela and then later the whole family. With or without the bump.
Weather was terrible. It was so chilly and windy that it was a challenge even to stand still. (Gotta love windy Welly) I’m so sorry to drag poor Angela over the rocks – just to find out that it got suddenly way too sunny for the photos I was after.
So change of plans – and took her to the boat sheds and a forest nearby.  But she was awesome. Thank you so much for this photoshoot, I had fun and you were amazing!
Family photos will follow later.

Täällä toisella puolen palloa vietetään parhaillaan lopputalvea joten mukava palata muistelemaan upeaa päivää tasan vuosi sitten ihanan hääjuhlan merkeissä.
Päivä alkoi vihkimisellä Lohjan Pyhän Laurin kirkossa ja mahtavaa juhlaa juhlittiin Luukin kartanolla Espoossa.
Paljon naurua, paljon onnen kyyneleitä, niin kaunis pari ja mieletön tunnelma kirkosta yömyöhään. Ihana päivä!
Ihanaa vuosipäivää Jenni & Petri, kiitos että sain olla mukananne koko päivän!

Wedding in Nygårds, Finland

On häitä. Ja sitten on HÄITÄ.
Viime vuoteen mahtui lukuisia hääjuhlia, useita hääpotretteja, vihkimisten taltioimisia. Kaikki häät ovat kauniita ja ihania, jokainen omanlaisensa. Joskus kuitenkin jotkut juhlat jää jostain syystä mieleen ja muistoihin tiukemmin kuin toiset. Ilman sen kummempaa syytä.

Vuosi sitten, 2.7., oli juuri sellainen päivä. 
En osaa selittää mikä teki näistä juhlista yhden viime vuoden mieleenpainuvimmista, näin vaan kuitenkin on.
Paahtava hellepäivä, paljon naurua, onnen kyyneleitä, yömyöhän järjetön ukkosmyrsky kaatosateineen. 

Paljon onnea Tanja ja Lauri paperihääpäivän kunniaksi! Kaunis kiitos että sain olla mukana päivässänne!
