I have been neglecting this little blog of mine too much. Couple of days ago (or was it weeks?) I made a promise to myself that I will update this blog more often. So, I should start with an easy post to get going. This is a personal travel story with travel photography.

We went to Rome, Italy for a long weekend. I was supposed to take iPhone photos also but guess what…I didn’t take any one of them. That’s why my Instagram (@petraveikkola) has been very quiet during our trip.

I have been in Rome before but the others that I’ve travelled with have never been there so we went to see all “the must see” sites, of course. Despite those great tourist attractions that we visited, I concentrated more to photograph things and scenes that inspired me in one or other way…rugged walls, letterboxes, small alleys, scenery over the roofs and great spring colors.

We were staying in a nice B&B in Trastevere which is a great neighbourhood if you don’t want to stay right in the middle of Rome’s centre. Easy walking almost anywhere worth seeing during a long weekend trip…

Weather was really nice, sunny and quite warm (around 18 – 20 degrees). Superb early spring! And great news is that I will be back in Rome in August! If only I could photograph a wedding in Rome someday…

Engagement session is always a great way to get to know your wedding photographer better. I am going to shoot their winter wedding.

Wedding photographer Finland

It was so nice to photograph a couple who has been married for 40 years! They wanted to celebrate their long marriage with their closest friends and remember those “old days” when they’ve got married. It was a sunny day full of laughter and joy, good food , music and of course good stories about their marriage. I wanted to share with you some details from that beautiful day. And the food was excellent! “The bride” has collected some old stuff that I was also photographing just for fun as I am such a vintage junkie.
