[ Rauma ]Sanni + Jussi //Elegant ARCHIPELAGO Wedding

Helmiranta Häät. Rauma Häät. forest wedding

One of my favorite locations to document a wedding is Rauma.
I’ve been here every summer the past years, and I’ve simply fallen in love with this small town.

The first weekend of August has always been special for me- it’s the weekend Rufus and I got married. Sanni and Jussi chose this year’s first Saturday of August as their wedding day because it was Sanni’s grandparent’s wedding anniversary day, as well as her parent’s wedding anniversary the following day.

Sanni writes about the wedding day: The whole day went as planned and we were relaxed through the day. It is difficult to tell what were the best parts because the day was perfect. The guests also told us how they enjoyed the wedding and the celebration wasn’t a traditional wedding. Many of the guests praised our duo and we were very pleased with the music! We found them through Voice of Finland, they were in the competition last season. The wedding ceremony was one of the best moments. It was touching and intimate. The terrace was a good choice and the weather was perfect.

– What were your expectations regarding the wedding photography? What were you looking for when searching for a wedding photographer? Why did you choose me?
I fell in love with your pictures but the price was something that made me hesitate because it was over the budget. I also browsed other wedding photographers’ portfolios but I always returned to your website. After seeing your photos, other photographers were not even close to your expertise. I liked your taste.

– Were your expectations met?  In what areas did I meet your expectations? What did you most enjoyed about working with me?
You were very easy to approach although we didn’t have the same mother tongue. I noticed from the beginning that you were a professional. And our taste and expectations were the same and that’s why it was easy to work with you. I could trust your taste. You exceeded our expectations with the amount of pictures and we are very thankful for the over hours!

– What can you comment regarding your experience regarding the initial meeting, the booking process, correspondence, conduct, attitude, attire, professionalism? What can be improved?
The whole process went smoothly. It was nice that Rufus was with you on the wedding day. You worked well together.

– Are you satisfied with the quality of the photographs in terms of artistic expression?  What was the response/reaction of your parents and your friends when seeing the images?
I am very satisfied with the pictures! We are very pleased we picked you and you were available that day. My parents loved the pictures and said the pictures brought back memories of the day.
