Last week I was fortunate enough to capture the beautiful wedding of Alice + Susumu. Alice had contacted me a while back after finding my book in Japan and wanted to know a little more about my work. She's an editor at an epic Japanese surf magazine for women called 'Honey' and she's got a love for surfing. I love how the universe collides like this sometimes. I tell you, in this job, no two days are the same, and the people I get to meet and connect with, I'm forever grateful for.
The wedding was set at Alila Villa's Soori, a hidden paradise amongst the western coast of Bali. I'd never even ventured up that way until the wedding so the drive their was even an eye opener. The setting was intimate and glowing, and I actually nearly teared up when they walked down the Aisle to 'Somewhere over the rainbow.' That's one thing I've been told about shooting weddings, never get emotionally attached. And I don't, but this was such a gorgeous moment it just made me smile from the heart. Weddings are always such a whirlwind to shoot, alot to think about, but I kind crave that craziness. I think I operate best under extreme pressure for some reason, it's a pretty exciting day to be apart of. Amidst the chaos, the nerves and the unknown, weddings always bring people together, and that's what I try and capture the most.
Here's a glimpse at what we got. If you're interested in booking in for a wedding, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
