I travelled to Amsterdam in the beginning of May to meet with Laura and Owen, -a great Finnish Canadian couple who are getting married in Finland this summer.
We spent most of the Saturday and well, the weekend discussing about their upcoming wedding, their ideas, wishes and the schedule for the day.
Those things we also could've easily talked through when they would've come to Helsinki or through Skype, but my initial idea for going to Amsterdam was to capture their home and lives at their current situation as they had just moved there from Canada. Like any other young couple they still have their plans for their future wide open so it was great to have this opportunity to be able to capture this part of their journey together.
So we did a small at home session (I was obsessed with that swing!!) and then went walking around Amsterdam and shot at gorgeous locations. We pretty much stopped shooting when the sun was setting so kudos to the couple for sticking up with me and making it through!
Laura keeps a wedding blog called Nordic Wife so if you want to keep up with their story and read her great tips while planning for their wedding then click here.
P.S. When I was studying marketing and business I did my exchange in Maastricht (2,5 hour train ride away from Amsterdam). It was amazing to be back in the Netherlands after over 6 years! It's definitely one of my favorite countries.
