Photographer Ireland

One of my definitely best experience so far regarding photography happened in Ireland last October when I attended the BEAUTEOUS WORKSHOPS BY PEARL & GODIVA #thestylingpilgrimage. I cannot even describe how wonderful it was to be able to experience such beauty and see how other so talented creative people worked.

I am not the same person after that experience. It just changed my way of seeing and observing. I was so inspired (and still I am!) after the workshop and already started to plan some great things for this year!

I highly recommend to take part in the Styling Pilgrimage by Pearl & Godiva if you have a chance. Those ladies just know what they are doing and they always create beauty! 

I am still learning to shoot on film (I guess you are never ready when it comes to photography) and trying to incorporate it more and more into my client sessions as well as personal projects. Can you spot below the images that were shot with my Contax 645?

This is part 1 of the Ireland photos. The second  and third ones come later.



“Come away o human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand.
For the world more full of weeping
than you can understand.”
- W.B. Yeats, “The Stolen Child”

    Arica - I want to throw my camera in the trash because these are THAT good. I love every single shot. The film look throughout makes me feel as though I’m looking through old photographs, and not scrolling through a blog. These are vouge worthy!ReplyCancel

Year 2014 wedding favorites

 

I’m off to a vacation and shooting in Thailand soon but before that I’ve gathered my favorite moments in images from last year’s weddings and couple sessions. I hope you’ll enjoy my wedding favorites of year 2014.

Thank you so much my always beautiful and amazing clients! It was a very good year but I am sure that this year is going to be even better…I am pretty sure about it already.

Enjoy your start of the year 2015! Let it be joyful and full of emotion!

 

 “To get the full value of joy

you must have someone

to divide it with.”

Male portrait

 

I love shooting weddings but I also like portrait sessions. It’s a great experience to have a young male in front of the camera as that does not happen so often. We had a great time even though these images might look a little bit sad and moody. I love how he looks like he is from old film noir and there’s some resemblance to James Dean also.

Shooting location was in Tampella area, Tampere.

Wedding Lempäälä

 

I was there in a beautiful, beautiful June day when Riikka and Jani got married. Their wedding Lempäälä was relaxed, lots of good food, happy people and really great weather. We chose to take first look images and portraits before the ceremony but we also took some portraits after the reception. It is always a pleasure when the wedding couple gives a green light to several portrait sessions during their wedding day. Oh, how I miss my summer weddings already!

 

“For it was not into my ear you whispered,

but into my heart.

It was not my lips you kissed,

but my soul.”

Vintage heirloom

 

I love this vintage heirloom ring box from The Mrs Box that arrived today. I had to photograph it immediately.

The box is made of vintage velvet which can be between 40 – 100 years old! What makes it so beautiful is those imperfections, perfectly imperfect. I love it!
