aka A day’s world of oblivion, Guy 25

A couple of days ago I wrote about the beautiful sunset over Seurasaari. The same day I shot this sunset I also had the privilege of shooting the wedding of a wonderful Finnish/Japanese couple. The church ceremony was in Temppeliaukionkirkko (where I went scouting on Day 9) in Helsinki. I also went scouting on Seurasaari and both days I went scouting the weather was dreadful. I was preparing for a lot of improvisation, but lucky for the couple getting married, but also very lucky for me, the weather turned around 180 degrees despite the forecasts for more rain. The day of the wedding was a glorious day in many ways.

And I was the lucky photographer, who was invited home to the couple twice -before and after the wedding- to enjoy a fabulous Japanese dinner. I almost feel guilty charging them for the shoot. A great experience it was!
