enjoy this moment for this moment is your life
it’s been a dream of mine for a few years now. a line on my bucket list…to shoot an elopement in Iceland. there is something beautiful about the intimacy of an elopement. just two people in love. sharing their love for each other with each other. and then there is Iceland. having seen hundreds of images of this small little island, i knew it would be something special. something amazing. but i was shocked at how unprepared i was for the raw natural beauty it really is. it’s so much more then just simple something special.
my friend Ewan and i spent two days with Sarah and Josh. we captured their connection the day we landed and their wedding the day after. these two are so in love. so connected. so perfect for each other it is beautiful. there was a moment (i remember it so clearly) while shooting their vows to each other, i had caught myself smiling. not just a simple smile but like the Cleveland Indians mascot smile. big. really big. this moment was something i had dreamt about for years and now i was in it. it was happening. it was a dream that had come true.
so thank you Sarah and Josh. thank you for placing your trust in me. thank you for bringing me half way around the world to be witness to your beautiful connection. you sent me a message a few days later while you were traveling around Iceland to thank me, but i feel that i should be the one thanking you. you allowed me to cross a line of my bucket list. you two made a dream of mine a reality.
thank you. thank you. thank you.
