Laura’s and Nuutti’s wedding was held in Hämeenlinna, in beautiful venue Vanajanlinna. Preparations were quite massive as there were Finland’s most renowned florists from Runebergin Kukka decorating reception site, hairdressers and make-up artist in three separate rooms working with family members.
Every wedding has different challenges and on this wedding I had to be very careful with the schedule as there were constantly some action going on different parts of the venue. Then every time I moved to different location I had to analyze every aspect of the scene (light, geometry, moment and composition) to get perfect shots.
Also light, which primarily dictates how I visualize the shot, was quite challenging as we got all possible variations throughout the day. During the preparation and ceremony I was faced with strong sunshine and later during the reception there was mix of artificial light and sunlight. Finally in the evening there was hard spot lights and ambient light level so dim that I had to shoot ISO 6400 and lenses wide open, f1.2-1.4.
