The year is coming to and end and I’m trying to comprehend all that has happened. It has been a life changing year. I’ve graduated after 4 years of studies, I’ve spend 3 weeks in New York, I’ve done my first international wedding and I’ve moved across the country to Turku. Since the beginning of the year was so hectic I tried to slow things down a bit until fall and it was just what I needed.
In October I attended Way up North, a wedding photography conference, in Stockholm. It consisted of two days jammed with inspirational presentations from some of the leading photographers in the industry. It light a fire in me that I didn’t expect. I’ve always been passionate about photography but it taught me to also be passionate about being an entrepreneur. These past four years during my studies I’ve been focusing on becoming a better photographer. This fall I’ve been concentrating on becoming a better entrepreneur. I want to give my clients the best experience possible. My business is still in a very small scale but as it grows I will focus as much on becoming a better photographer as I will on meeting my clients in the best possible way. These people invite me to be apart of one of the most intimate and important days of their lives, I want to make sure I give them, you, the best possible experience. More than just a bunch of pretty images. These are the kind of thought that have been spinning in my head this fall and I’m really excited about the changes that are to come. I’ve never felt so inspired before.
I’ve met some wonderful people this year and I’ve witnessed some incredibly beautiful weddings. There is no way I can show it all so I’ve just gathered some of the most precious moments I remember from this year. Different stories, different people and different places. Still it’s possible to combine them all into one big story, the story of the weddings I’ve shot this year. Oh, the love, the laughter and the crazy dance moves. I love it. Until next year.
