ELOpements and free spirit weddings rock!

Having travelled and roamed a good part of the world and lived abroad, I feel most alive in nature and quiet landscapes. What better canvas is there to set out for an adventure wedding or a couple session than what mother nature has already given us in all shapes and forms? I'm thrilled to see more and more people around the world combining their love for travel, the outdoors and nature with the idea to get married or have a symbolic ceremony in a very special, meaningful way to THEM. Who says you can't anyway?

 

Why do I love outdoor CEREMONIES and engagement sessions so much?

Ha! That's an easy one! 

I have spent a good part of my life out and about travelling and I'm extremely excited every time I explore a new country or place I have never been to before. Whether it's snowboarding in winter, hiking in summer or exploring a new country - I love to adventure myself! A day spent outside in nature or travelling to a new country is more meaningful to me than buying the latest new this or that to keep up with the Joneses. In the end, it's the experiences and memories that shape us and we thrive on when we're old and grey one day.

When I'm off to my own adventures, I rarely bring my camera in order to fully enjoy and soak in the present moment - however, a few snapshots have made it here and there and survived over the years.
