I am a Finnish wedding photographer, born in 1983, and I have been photographing weddings since 2008. In photographing I have been interested my whole life, even as a child I was very keen on taking pictures. My true call is photographing weddings probably because I am a glad and positive person; I understand the value of the big day to the married couples and I am happy to feel and share people's happiness at the weddings and this shows in my pictures.
Experience has taught me that anything can happen at the wedding and it is then the photographer needs to be awake and be able to adapt to different incidents, ready to take quality pictures full of feeling in every situation. For me it is important to capture the wedding day as it is. Taking pictures without flash is the key to authentic-looking pictures in which certain moments and the atmosphere - whether it is excited, happy or touched - are well preserved. My aim is to enable the married couple to relive the wedding day afterwards when looking at the pictures of their big day.
