I am a visual addict and design lover. I love beautiful aesthetics, kind people, and real emotions. I am addicted to words that mean something, freshly brewed morning coffee and purposeful life. My weaknesses are raw emotions and true love – and they can easily make me cry.
A warm summer evening by the sea with my little family and a glass of good wine together with a great book can do it for me. I could eat sushi every day, and traveling has always been a big part of my life.
Little gestures, spontaneous moments and genuine people inspire me. I adore film look, grain, and softness in my images. I also cherish timeless black & white photos. I value tangible images that you can touch, hold and show to your loved ones time after time. Leaving a tangible legacy of yourself to your next generations is everything. Trust me, it really is. Memories keep us fully alive…
I live in the Finnish countryside and enjoy the slow pace of life; mornings with birds singing, visiting a local farmers’ market, exploring nooks of the nearby forest, and getting well-needed gardening tips from neighbors. I used to be a lawyer for many years until I chose to be a photographer. I love what I do, and I consider myself privileged because of it.
If you like my intimate and delicate way of capturing weddings, please tell me your love story. I’ll take only 20 weddings each year so do not hesitate to contact me as soon as you know your wedding date.
I am based in Finland but currently available to weddings and elopements around Europe. Please drop me a sweet line or two: petra(at)petraveikkola.com.
“Sometimes you will never know
the value of a moment,
until it becomes a memory”
