I’m Jouni, a 38 years old professional documentary wedding photographer from Espoo. I’m a coffee nerd who is into music, good food, outdoors and traveling. When I’m not taking pictures I work as a marketing specialist. Throughout the years I’ve been photographing weddings, portraits, adventures and life.
Documenting weddings has been my thing since the beginning.
I started everything from a scratch with an entry-level camera not even knowing what I was doing nor even having any passion to photography but the more I took pictures the more interesting it got. Over 10 years, I have seen many people, their days and heard countless stories. Some of the clients became friends. I have had a privilege to photograph all around Finland, and even some abroad. Every gig is a new interesting adventure. I try document people’s lives as it is and not make people pose or do something they don’t want to. I’m always trying to push myself to create something memorable that evokes emotions.
“They are not just photos. They are alive in our hearts <3!”
“JOUNI PHOTOGRAPHED OUR JULY 2018 WEDDING AT KULOSAARI’S CASINO. I DON’T REMEMBER EVER SEEING SUCH PHOTOS WHERE THE INDIVIDUAL MOMENTS, EMOTIONS, HAPPINESS, LAUGHS AND TEARS WERE CAPTURED IN SUCH A UNIQUE AND EMOTIONAL WAY. EVERYONE WAS REALLY TOUCHED BY THE PHOTOS! JOUNI IS AN EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER, WHOSE PICTURES ALLOW US TO RETURN TO THE SPECIAL ATMOSPHERE OF THE WEDDING DAY AGAIN AND AGAIN. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOUNI FOR ANY OCCASION WHERE YOU WANT TO CAPTURE THE MEMORIES IN AN EMOTIONAL AND UNIQUE WAY.”
“JOHANNA AND JOUNI PHOTOGRAPHED OUR WEDDING IN AUGUST 2018 AND WE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER THAT WE CHOSE THEM! THE PICTURES ARE BEAUTIFUL, TOUCHING AND FULL OF EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS! LOOKING AT THE PICTURES WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RELIVE EVERY MOMENT, IT FEELS LIKE THE PICTURES REALLY TAKE US BACK TO OUR WEDDING. THE PICTURES TELL A STORY, SOMEHOW THEY HAVE MANAGED TO CAPTURE ALL THE LOVE THAT WAS PRESENT DURING THE DAY. JOHANNA AND JOUNI LIVED THE CELEBRATION WITH US, AND NOT JUST DOCUMENTED IT. FURTHERMORE IT WAS A PLEASURE TO SPEND TIME WITH THEM, WE MADE A SEPARATE TRIP TO PORKKALANNIEMI FOR THE PORTRAITS AFTER THE WEDDING DAY, AND THAT DAY WAS A WONDERFUL MEMORY (IN ADDITION TO THE GREAT PHOTOS). IT WAS LIBERATING NOT TO HAVE TO STRESS ABOUT THE PORTRAITS ON THE WEDDING DAY, BUT WE COULD LATER HAVE A RELAXED ADVENTURE BY THE SEA AND GO BACK ONCE AGAIN TO THE WEDDING FESTIVITIES!
JOHANNA AND JOUNI’S PHOTOS ARE PARTICULARLY BEAUTIFUL AND IMPRESSIVE BECAUSE THEY CONVEY A PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY AS AN ART FORM. THE IMAGES ARE MORE THAN JUST PICTURES, THEY ARE AT THE SAME TIME FULL OF MEMORIES, AND YET INDEPENDENT WORKS OF ART, EACH AS AN INDIVIDUAL. THANK YOU BOTH ONCE AGAIN!”
“WE CAN WARMLY RECOMMEND JOUNI. JOUNI WAS OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER LAST SUMMER. JOUNI TOOK A MINI PHOTO SESSION OF US IN OUR EVERYDAY CLOTHES, WHICH WERE UPLOADED TO THE ONLINE PHOTO GALLERY. THE WEDDING PHOTOS WERE ALSO EASILY UPLOADED THERE, ON THE SAME PORTAL. COMMUNICATION AND PICTURES ARE OF PROFESSIONAL LEVEL!
IN SHORT, THE PICTURES WERE GREAT. THE PICTURES HAVE A DIFFERENT WARM VIBE THAN THE TRADITIONAL PICTURES. EXCELLENT! THANK YOU JOUNI.”
“OUR THANKS ARE NOT ENOUGH TO EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE.”
