A heartwarming end of the world elopement shoot

Sometimes you have to work hard for something beautiful. Sometimes you need to travel very far to create magic. Sometimes the end result is something so special, that it was all worth it. For this gorgeous editorial I first flew to Helsinki, Finland and then took a road trip even further and further north, thirteen hours in a car, 200 kilometres past the arctic circle. And when it felt like we were practically at the end of the world, we had found our perfect spot. And then our beautiful couple Lauri and Kathariina just fulfilled the empty woods of Lapland with their amazing chemistry and made us forget all the many, many hours of work before. I may or may not have shed a little happy tear when at the end of our shoot the nordic sky opened for a few seconds and Kathariina’s dress just perfectly floated in the cold air.
