helsinki and back....

finnland - full of surprises

If you've never been to Helsinki - do. And if you get to say "I do" then you're in for a treat!

Kirsti & Bryant married in and around Helsinki. Two families - one from San Francisco, the other from Helsinki bound in a beautiful weekend in Finnlands' capital city. From a tour a remote typically Finnish restaurant on a tiny island - Gula Villan on Espoo offered stunning food, stunning weather, just stunning! All with homely Finnish hospitality...

feel the love

There are so many joys as a wedding photographer - and after some years experience, probably the greatest is feeling the love! Whether on the couple shoot, getting ready or at the ceremony, whatever style or denomination it may be - those declarations of love publicly are memorable... and Kirsti & Bryant's reasons for getting married bought tears to my eyes... a pleasant occupational hazard....

amazing light

But despite the delights, the light was a photographers dream, and regardless of the incredibly changeable weather, it was always amazing! Whether in front of the Cathedral, or on a remote island - dramatic light for 20 hours a day made this wedding a particular joy to shoot....

One last comment - i will be coming back soon Helsinki....
