Hanna Salonen Photography bio picture

    I want to impact people. I want to bring happiness around me. I want it to matter. Whether it’s a wedding, family or little kiddos I’m shooting my goal is to not only leave you with a set of beautiful images but a memory of an enjoyable experience.

    My style as a photographer is a hybrid between photo-journalism, art photography and portrait photography. I got my BFA in fine art photography and I aim to be timeless and one-of-a-kind with my work. I want each image to be unique to it’s owner! I love colour and fun in photography (and let’s face it; in life general). Having your picture taken shouldn’t be a dull experience. I adapt my approach with every client because every client is unique and different AND AWESOME. Some clients flourish if you give them more space and you’re a fly on the wall. Others like more feedback and commentary while the shooting is happening. I feel like a photographer should do their best to make you feel comfortable (because most people already are aware there’s a camera in the room). I chat as much or as little to make you comfortable and sometimes even snap when you least expect it to get the candid moments.

    My heart beats for my family. My daughter, Eila is my reason to be better, try harder and love stronger. My husband is my BFF and he’s quite adorable as well.

    I also love cookies, cupcakes, thrifting (people always say I find the best stuff!) and Netflix. I also love fresh cut grass (the smell is the best ever), polka-dots and stripes and interior design. Oh yeah and of course I love my home-Finland and singing to Taylor Swift loudly in my car. And yep, I love The Bachelor and all the Real Housewives! And Jesus is pretty cool too.


Thank you so much for all who have died to protect and serve this beautiful country I get to call my second home. Praying today for all the family and loved ones of these heroic folks.


Today I got to shoot this beautiful family and they’re just the cutest! I love my job! More from this session later!

It’s just so cool what I get to do-obviously shoot memories for people but most importantly witness them enter these amazing moments in their lives, once in a lifetime kinda moments. Like when Ean and Greg got married I got to shoot their beautiful wedding, and now I got to shoot Ean expecting their little Lucy. And tomorrow I’ll get to shoot their family of 3. It’s just beautiful to see people through these new changes in their lives.

So happy for you and Greg and congrats you guys!
