If you're lucky, you might cross paths with people who's hearts and souls beat to the same drum as yours. And it's some kind of magic.
I call these people "Kindred Spirits."
These two right here? They are the kindredest of spirits. Not just to one another, but to me as well. I can't explain it, but I knew from the moment we first talked on the phone (maybe even from the first email exchange) that this couple was different. Could it be because they see the world through an artist's lens like me? Could it be because we share an love for all things Pixar and Hot Air Balloons? Maybe. Whatever the reason, I am beyond blessed to have met them and had the chance to document this beautiful piece of their love story.
When I was a child, my bedtime stories were filled with woodland elves, giant spiders, black riders, hobbits, and all things Tolkien.
When I was in high school, I was often lost in my own world with my nose in a book or teaching myself a mythical language.
Though I am now an adult, I am still forever searching for ways to bring those magical lands to life through my lens.
So you can imagine my excitement when Colleen asked if I would want to bring Middle Earth to life in the form of a wedding inspiration shoot. And who else could possibly pose as our Elven lovebirds but my childhood best friend and muse, Quin, and her husband Tony?!
there is nothing quite like the first wedding of the year.
all I can say is, if the rest of the year is anything like this beautiful beginning, I think I will be quite the happy camper.
I'm completely smitten with these two and their fur-child, Louie.
