the wedding of elisa & juho: sun, laughter & beautiful moments

At the end of May, I had the opportunity to immortalize the wedding of Elisa and Juho in Mikkeli, a city about 3 hours from Helsinki. It was exciting to travel a bit further for this wedding shoot – actually, it’s the furthest I’ve gone for this reason so far. I’m looking forward to more of these!

The wedding was a traditional one with approximately 100 friends and relatives attending. I was lucky enough to photograph both the ceremony and the party, which went on to early the next morning. I hope you enjoy these few selected photographs from this magical day!

The party was held in a beautiful place with traditional red-painted buildings.



There were people of all ages…

The party went on long after I left around midnight.

  1. Jättefina bilder Hannele! Om jag någonsin får gifta mig kommer jag definitiv önska dig som fotograf.

    • Tack, Johanna! Jo, ta kontakt bara om det blir så 🙂 Om du känner någon annan som är i behov av bröllopsfotograf får du gärna ge dem min hemsideadress också (
