Risto Kuitunen is a Finland based wedding photo professional

Since I was a young boy I have been interested in photography. In wedding photography I have found my true calling and I love the many challenges of wedding photography. At weddings the photographer has to be ready all the time to capture the special moments and emotions of the married couple and guests. The photographer has to be able to adapt to very quickly to changing and unexpected moments. My aim is to capture the real feeling and emotions of the couple and the guest and produce high quality photos which the married couple can enjoy years after the actual wedding. In order to do this I try blend in with the guests and make as natural photos as possible. At weddings I use a set of high quality digital cameras and supporting equipment to make the photos also technically as good as possible. I am also a very happy and open person and I can easily relate to the emotions the couple and the guests are going through. [Turku Wedding Photographer]
