Hääkuvaus Tampere // Heli-Maarian + Joonan tunnelmalliset häät Tampereen Helluntaiseurakunnassa ja Ravintola Rusthollissa
In the morning I sat in the car Heli-Maaria was driving. I thought to myself that if a bride is this laid back that she wants to drive by herself, it can’t be anything but an awesome day. After that we ate homemade pizza for lunch. Then I saw the beautiful paper bouquet Heli-Maaria had made for herself. Later I saw all the rest of the beautiful things she had made. Their day really reflected them. That is so important when planning your wedding.
The Pentecostal Church of Tampere is special to me. Coming from a Pentecostal family, I went there many times when I was younger. I grew up in Jämsä, but of course Tampere was always the place you wanted to go to because it was a bigger city. It was a surreal experience to photograph a wedding there. If somebody would have told me years ago that in 2013 I was in that situation, photographing a wedding, I wouldn’t have believed. God works in mysterious ways. ♥
With making of this blog post I struggled with the same things I always struggle with. Less, or more. We don’t always want to tell the story in a same way. Sometimes it feels like only a handful of images is enough. But with this wedding, only a handful of images isn’t enough. It was a special day with special people. People who were willing to climb on the top of a fountain because I/we had a crazy idea. Who showed a complete trust in us throughout the day. It’s special.

These are absolutely stunning. Love the second to last image.
wonderful compositions. love the shot of the b&w with the kid looking at the car – also love the portraits near the water feature!
That water fountain place – it would have never crossed my mind to take a shot there. I would have walked right past it. This just proves how awesome and creative you guys are.
Oh goodness gracious your work makes me so happy. It is so lovely, seeing how you document the day, your attention to detail. Seriously. Gorgeous. Also, the image of them on front of the fountain, that’s great imagery.
