We only got lost for a hot minute before returning to our *humble* (to say the least) motel. That was another adventure for the books; but honestly, we couldn’t help but belly laugh so hard we almost started crying.
Death Valley, California
On an uncommonly sunny day in Icelandic spring, the sun rose bright and early…around 2:30am. Just as the sun peeked over the volcanic rock, Yana and Mario shared a kiss after 5 years of marriage. I always love anniversary sessions, and this one sure did deliver. It was a quick session since they both had to work back in Reykjavik, which was a few hours away. They are professional dancers and dance coaches! So of course, they had to show me a few of their moves during their session (and I photographed it cuz duh). Also, can we just talk about their outfits for a sec? They put the FIRE in the land of ice and fire.
Gracyn + Joseph met at their Catholic church in Azusa in middle school, where they, of course, also tied the knot.
We talked & laughed… and argued about which Marvel characters are better.
The Colorado storm like clockwork started 10 minutes before the ceremony, and ended right in time to wipe down the chairs and still start the ceremony on time. The rain left beautiful, dramatic clouds and a few rainbows. The rain was quite a blessing. It left the air nice and cool and made taking photos ridiculously beautiful.
Up in the Bavarian Alps, there’s a little 50s-style cable car that takes you to the top of a mountain, overlooking valleys and the rest of the German Alps (oh, and a casual castle down below).
