si-su /see’-soo/ — strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity.
Welcome to SisuPhoto — wedding photography, family photography and more — by Michele Jokinen. SisuPhoto is the opposite of pretentious photography.
I am a formally trained photojournalist with nearly 15 years of experience as a professional shooter. I enjoy shooting in a photojournalistic style, with a focus on capturing candid, intimate moments that are so easy to miss. I would love to use my camera to document your special day and provide memories to last a lifetime! I also love photographing families and children, catching those natural interactions that unfold before my lens. Many of my clients have told me that their favorite photographs were the ones they didn’t even realize were being shot. I love the emotional interactions at weddings and the unexpected moments. I love how every wedding is so different and a wonderful reflection of the personalities of the couples involved and I feel honored that couples trust me to document their day. I love this job, because at the end of the night I get to walk away exhausted but happy, knowing that hours of editing a beautiful day await me.
Along with wedding photography and family photography, I am available to photograph events, head shots and editorial work.
I believe that everybody deserves the right to marry the one that they love.
What is sisu?
