My job has taken me around the world. I’ve experienced things I never imagined I would and have had the opportunity to capture peoples lives in areas of the world I probably would have never seen otherwise. This story is quite different than most of my others I’ve shared as it isn’t one that lasted a day but instead, these images are the story of a weekend. I’ve spent almost all of 2014 traveling the world for weddings and engagements and Pilar & Pierce’s wedding in Spain marked the end of the European travels for this year. They were married in the Pyrenees mountains in a little town called Sort accompanied by about 30 of their family and best friends. This is the start of our weekend starting in Barcelona, Spain…

Our first full day in the Pyrenees was spent hiking several miles into the mountains to a small refuge for lunch. This day is one my kids will hear about. The part I treasure most about my job is becoming friends with my clients. I believe it has an amazing effect on the outcome of my images when I truly know the couples I’m working with and even more so when I know the people celebrating with them. Every wedding is an experiment for me to try something new and knowing my couples allows me to do this best. I love shooting in new places and find the most inspiration when I’m forced into new situations. These few hours, secluded in these mountains with no connection to the outside world, was one of the most beautiful images of family I’ve ever seen. Conversations went on for hours as we broke bread together. A storm rolling in was the only reason why we left when we did but the idea of being stranded at that refuge was quite enticing. Someone grabbed my camera and shot an image of Pilar pouring wine in my mouth as a spanish tradition and this pretty much set the tone for the afternoon…

Wedding Day. I woke up early that morning and enjoyed a local coffee and breakfast at one of the only “cafes” in town. The options were limited but perfect and no one spoke english. After much pointing, broken spanish on my part, and a few laughs on theirs, they kind of understood. I forget when shooting weddings like this that I’m in another part of the world. I get so consumed in the culture, in the family, in the couple that life back home doesn’t exist for a few days. Maybe immersing yourself in someone else’s story is the only true way to tell it…
