Being sick is probably the worst case scenario for a wedding photographer, especially during the summer season when it’s pretty much impossible to get a decent substitute photographer, but this was an even bigger problem for me. This wedding was on Friday, I had another wedding also on Saturday – and my own wedding in Sunday!
I was suffering from meningitis, which made it pretty difficult to just stand up. I went to a doctor and got heavy medication so I was able to work in the wedding. I have worked while sick a couple of times earlier, but this was my heaviest wedding ever. But even with the difficult circumstances everything went really smoothly.
Aysu and James were married in Suomenlinna and had their reception in Tenalji von Fersen. Like the other venues where I have worked during this summer, it was pretty dark. It was like working during the wintertime, working with the primes while pushing the camera equipment up to the limits.
These are my faves from the day.
