Happy Photography Company bio picture
  • HI! I’M SO HAPPY YOU’RE HERE!

    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.

How glowing is she? Like, I don’t remember looking anything like this glowing when I was pregnant! NOT AT ALL!

I just absolutely adore shooting maternity sessions-there’s so much hope and anticipation in this time in a woman’s life. It’s such an exciting time!!!

///JUSTIN+ALLIE///LONDON, KY WEDDING

These two and their freaking awesomeness! I can’t, I can’t! So Allie and Justin are our friends and it was such an honor to capture their wedding day as a friend and as a professional!

These two are so much fun, so sweet and if it’s not clear they’re pretty much like professional models that are not discovered yet. Like tomorrow, you guys will be buying groceries in Kroger and someone will hand out their card and will be like ‘have you guys considered modeling?’. And then you guys will take a private plane to New York (obviously paid by the modeling agency) and as they say..the rest will be history after that. And I’ll be just that random Finnish friend you knew ‘before you got famous’. So yeah. Anyway.

Their wedding day was perfection. Allie’s dress was perfection and Allie in it is perfection. Justin was dapper as ever and together it was like BOOM-adorableness!!!

I’m so happy for you guys and so happy you have found each other and so happy to know you guys!!! Congrats you two!
