I love weddings. When you catch the bride’s eyes and sense the butterflies in her stomach, as her bridesmaids help her put on her wedding dress. When you see the same butterflies in the groom’s eyes when he is waiting to meet his bride for the first time. Proud parents’ tears of joy as their children walk down the aisle. The first dance – my favourite moment - it contains so much emotion.

Emotions and feelings, that’s what weddings are about - happiness, love and joy. That is the fuel that drives my wedding photography and what I wish for you to experience when you look at my photos. Each wedding to me is a unique piece of art and to photograph one is an honour that reserves its own special place in my heart.

" We could not have been happier with our wedding photographer. Hannika is a great professional who made the wedding day photography feel effortless. She knew how to guide the portrait sessions in a way that everything felt very natural. Also the guests were very fond of Hannika. Now we have gorgeous wedding photos where memories of the most important day of our lives live forever. "

How do you know whether I’m the right person to shoot your wedding?

It’s not easy to choose a wedding photographer, to trust a person you might not have ever met before.

My approach to wedding photography is a mixture of fine art and photojournalism. I like to document the events of the day naturally, as they come. But I also bring to the table my own vision of beauty. If I spot the most magical light, or a perfect backdrop, I may not be able to resist asking you for a shot.

In the way that I work, wedding portraits form a mini story that make just one chapter of the whole wedding day. I’m not talking about a traditional, stuffy portrait session, it’s about you two spending time together, a moment that you can have completely to yourselves. I will be there to document these moments in beautiful imagery, guiding you when needed. You just bring yourselves and the love that you share, I’ll do the rest. 

Trust. It’s the most important thing.

And getting to know each other is the best way to build trust.

I love a good chat and I’ll make sure to have a proper one with you before your wedding day, in order for us to get to know each other, and for me to understand what’s important to you. 

The key thing is that you feel comfortable with me. That way you can concentrate on each other and your incredible day, and when it comes to documenting it I’ve fully got your back. For me, trust allows space for creativity.

The old man smiled.
'You will, when you see her.'
