They rented an Airbnb in the middle of the Connemara mountains, Jess and Colin both got ready together that morning. From the handmade dress, to the hidden spot by the “lonely” tree, to their sunset photos. The entire day was magic.
One of my favorite places in Ireland is Connemara and this session is especially close to our hearts, After their long journey for few months in the other side of the world, share the day with this couple was incredible and inspiring.
I love capturing the real stuff--the awkward laughing, inside jokes, and the way couples naturally fall into each other--without the poses and direction we typically give. These two were candid & honest with us. Going from sweet cuddling to making fun of each other all within the same breath, which felt so real. These two are fun, and sweet, and silly, and weird, all wrapped up into one. Basically, my favorite kind of people.
Next time in Canada, maybe? haha
Best of luck on your new journey guys... <3
"Happiness is everywhere and we have to do our best to capture it. It's something I have to do. It's what I have to set out to do, It's my leitmotiv, my obsession. On a wedding day, my only focus is the couple. I'm a photographer attracted by the human. These words, these sentences accompany me permanently during these days that I share with my couples."
I could write lines and lines and still I would not have enough space to describe how wonderful it was to write this story right in the hearth of Dublin - Ireland.
I don't know which part of that cloudy day moved me most. Their love, so visible through my lens or all their "carinho" and happiness with family and friends. They came all the way from Texas to make Ireland even more beautiful and special. <3
Those are the kind of moments that everyone should experience in their lives...
Somebody who betters you.
Somebody who inspires and encourages you in love and in life,
who pushes you towards dreams and goals You would otherwise ignore
who selflessly sacrifices their time to helping you become a more courageous,
well-rounded and happy human being.
That's sacred. You hold on to a love like that.

Sacha & Melissa are special. gentle spirits with the kindness of souls, and ooze coolness. Spending the day with these two felt like spending time with two old friends. There is a silly, pure, and deep love between them and they planned their wedding to suit their love perfectly. It could not have been more perfect.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I do not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close your eyes close as I fall asleep.
