nostalgia | autumn in Vermont in our sweet little cabin

I have been around the world and no where is quite as beautiful as New England in the fall...

Going through the archives (aka cleaning out three external hard drives) and my heart swells with a big wave of nostalgia... a perfect weekday (read: wedding photographer weekend) getaway to rural Vermont in the fall.

Post unrelated to much else, but hey, since this is "my" blog, these make my heart so happy, and I want to feel that way again and again... so hence, this post, these photos.





magical Iceland | elopement at a secret waterfall | K+J

"ég elska þig."

Maybe you read my blog post from 2014, many many moons ago, where I raved about an unreal week spent hiking glaciers, hunting for waterfalls and going out dancing under the Midnight Sun. Oh, I feel so much gratitude for the strange serendipity that brought this opportunity into my life (serendipity or, manifestation? What do we call it? I don't really know, so I've just settled on "magic.")

From the moment it started this adventure was nothing short of magic. I saw the Northern Lights from the airplane. Watched them dance from my cozy seat in a hot tub (!). Chased the end of a double rainbow. Made friends with Icelandic horses. Hiked between tectonic plates. Hunted for secret waterfalls and the ever-so-perfect spot for K+J to say their vows.

K + J are New England natives but avid travelers and escaped to Iceland to say their vows + I do's. What a dream.

Here are a few favorite moments from exploring the Icelandic countryside with these two lovers...
