Some places don’t feel real.
Since I started photography, it’s been rather dreamlike all the places I’ve been able to go and see. From rural, farm country Minnesota—the pinnacle of Americana—to the towering peaks of Kilimanjaro and everyone in between. Each place is breathtaking and special to me for unique reasons.
But my heart always keeps coming back to Iceland. There is a magic here that is palatable. You can see it in the dark storm clouds. You can hear it in the crack of the waves along the south Coast. You can feel it in the goosebumps as you see the fog descending slowly upon you. It’s in every twist and turn. And everything seems so new. And limitless. That alone is the makings of an awesome adventure.
And then you add these two incredible people into the mix. I don’t have words to describe just how (insert superlative + noun here) this time we had together was. Honor and Patrick are two incredible people. Inspiring. Gracious. I’ve known Honor for a bit now, but when I met Patrick I was astounded at how ridiculous perfect these two people were for each other. Their story is beautiful and timeless, and as individuals, they light the way for so many others. Throughout the day, as we were driving around the south cost and I would turn around in the car and look at them in the rear seats and there was something about them that made me think, “These people are going to do amazing things.” I truly believe that.
These people are on-in-a-million and I’m proud to call them my friends. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your relationship in such an intimate and encouraging way.
And last but not least, thanks to my good friend Matt Lien for flying out to Iceland to hang out and to snap some photos along the way. I’m looking forward to many more adventures together.
