It's a pretty special thing, being called to not only attend a wedding out of town, but to capture it for a family that I feel I've known forever (yes, my age is showing). This message came through last year, and I couldn't think of any answer other than a resounding yes (!) and I'm sure everyone that was involved in Krista and Piotr's wedding feels the same way. YES.
There is a magic about them. A serenity, a calm; however, when you hear of their adventures, you're surprised. And that's the other cool thing... their adventures. Even as they're about to unite on the best adventure... they've already shared incredible experiences that forged their bond.
It's not a surprise, either, that they selected such a natural, beautiful, rugged location to wed. Incredibly personal ceremony, amazing food, dad-made centrepieces, mom-made bridesmaid dresses, scrambling up waterfalls to capture amazing moments. Special, indeed.
To Krista and Piotr and the most amazing adventure - a lifetime together.
