It was the cold wind that hit me first as I walk out of JFK airport. An 8 hour flight flew by with 4 movies and a bag of popcorn. It wasn't my first time to the city, I'd been here a few months ago and the cold chill was a familiar one...
Now this is where the real highlight of my year happened! Out in the desert, warm fine sand sinking softly under my bare feet and nothing but blue skies and bright sun above, suffice to say, life felt pretty perfect. Walking high on softly rolling dunes was a dream (one I didn't even know I had) come true!
A couple of years ago I had the pleasure to capturing a beautiful wedding deep in the french countryside. Andrew and Erica met 12 years ago whilst at university. I know them from when we worked towards our masters in Architecture a few years back. The bond between them is clear as day to anyone who knows them, Erica's calm waters compliments Andrew's playful fire so beautifully. They're one of those couples that give everyone hope.
The day was cold and bright when Lydia, India, and I made our way to the location where we would spend the day. I'd seen it in pictures but the reality took my breath away; A fairy home tucked away in a city. Lydia found it through magic of her own keen spirit. She always seems to find the most beautiful spaces. Madeleine, the owner of the home, greeted us at the door with hugs and a bright energy. I knew immediately we were going to be great friends from our previous communication and from her warm energy that presented itself that morning.
It's been exactly 4 weeks since Pratik Naik and I got together and hosted our Storyteller Workshop in London. In my last post I shared behind the scenes photos, the format of the workshop and my experiences of the day that I hosted. It's my pleasure now to share with you guys the finished images from everyone who attended! It's so interesting to see how each person has interpreted the same scene in their own styles.
