In early October, Melissa and I got to witness Adam and Freya celebrate their love with their closest friends and family in Bermuda. After more than a year of planning, not even a day-of venue change due to a surprise tropical storm could rattle them. They went through the events of the day with such ease and lightness, savoring each moment and appreciating everything around them. At recent weddings, I’ve noticed I’m not as emotional as I used to be (read: I’m not crying through the ceremony) as I’ve learned to distance myself a bit in order to fully focus on getting the shot. But editing is a different story — I teared up so many times reliving these moments. (The way they look at each other …!) These two lovely humans are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met, and the mutual respect and generosity they share is something to admire.

Thanks, as always, to my lady Melissa for capturing so many moments with me and thank you(!!!!) Adam and Freya for having us.

Some photos from a night spent sleeping under the stars in Joshua Tree National Park back in March — unprepared for the cold (trying to squeeze into the one sleeping bag we had a mattress pad for), amazed by the sound of coyotes echoing through our campsite, and counting the loooong hours until sunrise and coffee. Still though, it was one of my favorite nights of the trip — the beauty of that landscape is just unreal.

Melissa and I were recently in Bermuda for a wedding (more on that later!) and ended up having quite the adventure of our own. The day we were supposed to leave, we were caught in a crazy tropical storm that changed paths and gained strength at the last minute. We woke up to the sound of loud wind gusts (later reported to be 90 mph), bent palm trees and sideways rain. When the storm calmed down a bit, I explored the neighborhood to find giant trees down, power lines blocking roads so taxis were unable to get anywhere — the roof of the airport even blew off, causing the sprinkler system to activate, causing the entire airport to flood and consequently close “until further notice.” After the initial anxiety of dealing with cancelled flights and being stuck and helpless wore off, our extra time in Bermuda ended up being some of the most fun. There was such comradery between everyone swapping storm stories, and there was not much to do but hang around and relax. We spent the afternoon swimming laps and chatting by the pool with white wine, and then had a long dinner at the only restaurant in town with power.

Aside from the storm excitement, Bermuda was lovely — full of the most gorgeous colors (the bluest blues I’ve ever seen) turquoise waters, pink buildings, pink sand, and mopeds lining the streets. As our friendly cab drivers loved to tell us, it was Bermudaful.

I loved stopping by the oasis that is Terrain on my recent trip to Philidelphia. What a BREATHTAKING place. I also answered a few questions on their blog if you’re interested!
