Start your journey here
Your love and commitment deserve to be the centre of attention on your wedding day. This day marks the entry to the rest of your lives together, so make it memorable, make it extraordinary, make it an adventure. Make it reflect the two of you and everything you ever wanted.
This day should be a story you’ll tell future generations. I will take the photos that tell that story in a genuine way. Because those photos are memories of the moments. And I’ll make sure that your experience comes first, always.
personal elopement experiences in my favourite nordic locations that put the focus where it belongs – on your love and connection
For the ones who know that the intimacy they want for their wedding vows won’t be possible in front of a crowd. For the adventurers. The ones who like to take the scenic route and love road trips. The ones who value experiences over stuff and know that time is the most precious thing we have.
The ones who love the north like I do.

And the memories of moments. To me as a photographer, your experience of a shoot is so much more important than a photo. Instead of creating that perfect Instagram shot in front of that epic mountain and posing for manufactured feelings, I want you to be yourselves, focus on the experience, the moments, the memories in the making.
We can still climb that mountain together or find a spot by the lake. But they aren’t backdrops for a photo, they are the settings to your story. So, I promise that we won’t do anything just for a photo. We will do it for the experience.

Hi, I'm Jaakko. Adventurer, outdoor-enthusiast, husband, father, in love with the wild north. I shoot elopements for people who want to honour their love through a meaningful experience and memories that last for a lifetime.
If you’re like me, a big wedding isn’t for you. Not if you really think about it. And I want you to be brave enough to say no to it. Because I wish my wife and I had been. And I'll be there to capture it all.
