I took a part-time job during my slow season at a cupcake store. I was there for three weeks and during those three weeks I met Brittany and Jens. And then they hired me to shoot their wedding. And come to find out Brittany was part Finnish and her grandmother immigrated from Finland. And then I shot Brittany’s cousin, Hannah’s wedding. And now, I got to shoot Brittany’s brother’s, Luke’s wedding.

Confused much, yet?

In short version: I should be called their family photographer. The official family wedding photographer at this point.

All weddings that I shoot are special. No doubt. There’s no discussion about that. But when I get to shoot these family weddings they’re like super special because I get to see familiar faces and with the Ranta family, I get to see familiar, FINNISH faces. You all know by now that I’m from Finland?

And especially Luke’s grandmother has a special place in my heart. Because you know, us Finnish women have to stick together.

But back to Luke and Emily now that I’ve already written an entire book.

Luke and Emily. Sweetest and cutest couple ever. Like from the first time I met Emily I just wanted to put her in my pocket because she’s just so darn adorable. And the way Luke looks at Emily- it’s just precious. You can just tell their balance each other really well.

And their wedding day. Beautiful, sunny and just full of happiness!!! Can we also take a moment of silence to the beauty of the Brown Hotel? Like, so classic and so timeless- a lot like Emily and Luke.

And the reception! OH MY GOSH! THE DANCING! So many good moves (that I totes made a mental note of and I’m going to put it my cataloque of awesome dance moves) on the dance floor! Like full on dance party 2017 happened. You missed out, I tell you.

Congrats Luke and Emily! I wish you guys so so much happiness, love and blessings for the future!!!
