“Let me begin by saying that ever since I first found your website last week, I can’t stop myself from returning back there again and again (and I’m pretty sure that my fiancé does the same)! Scrolling through all the beautiful photos that you took, it’s impossible not to feel the happiness and the very special energy of these weddings. You’re doing such a great job in picturing the moment, people and emotions! So of course, we would very much like to have you on our wedding day as well” -Alina & Jean

Alina and Jean.
You can not meet them and not fall in love with them. They are just so kind and sweet and genuinely loving.

Alina is Russian and Jean is French. They call themselves “Frussians”. They have a cat and two bunnies. They met in Finland during their studies, and on their last year here, they decided to get married.
“Finland is so beautiful in summer and we met here, and started living together here, and getting married here would make us always remember these happy years and this place”.

This is the story of an international wedding set between the tall pine trees of Santalahti resort, on one of the most gloomy, rainy days of Finnish summer I’ve ever experienced.
