Santa Fe Wedding Photographer // Elizabeth & Matthew Intimate Destination Wedding

santafewedding weddings destination weddings   We loved New Mexico and feel truly blessed to be part of this special, intimate wedding of Elizabeth and Matthew. They rented a house in the outskirts of Santa Fe and with a group of their closes family and friends [including their furry kids] celebrated this beautiful time in their life. It was so beautifully emotional and real, our hearts are full with love and happiness for those two and their families. Happy tears and beautiful speeches, fun and dancing. Oh, and vegan meal [yes! we heart vegan food and give tremendous hats off to all that chose to live animal cruelty free way!] and the best vegan cake we’ve ever tasted. word. We flew in two days before to explore Santa Fe, managed to meet up with two photographer friends and have lovely breakfast in some little french cafe. After the wedding we headed north to see what’s beyond the city, what we saw further captured our already love filled hearts. If you haven’t seen the post, we have a personal one with landscape photos from our trip {musings from Santa Fe}. We really love exploring the US territory, because let’s face it, we have beautiful varied landscapes, interesting cities and just as many amazing destination locations as other parts of the world.   santafewedding 0001 weddings destination weddings

We’re not big on writing. Some people can have these beautiful monologues; spilling out their heart and minds. We’re not like that. We love sharing our hearts, thoughts, mind; but writing is not our strong point. We are visuals, we see and feel. So, once in a while, we try to pour something out of our hearts onto, in this instance, a digital canvas. We try to write about our life… but don’t expect too much text, we’re hoping that the images and vistas you’ll see in this post, will help you understand what we feel.   Content, happiness, tranquility and love.

This post is about a recent fave quote from Marcin “life is not perfect but it’s damn good“.

Few weeks ago we flew out to New Mexico for an intimate destination wedding [which we'll share at another time]. Being adventurers at heart and first time in NM, we decided to take a little road trip. We saw beautiful nature and that nature inspired us to think about life, how amazing it is, how amazing our planet is, how much beauty surrounds us every day and ultimately how lucky we feel to live the way we do & do what we do. A reminder to savor every day & every minute.  To cherish having each other, our dogs, our family and friends.

That’s all, we share this post with you with full and inspired hearts.  It has no people, it has no weddings but with the same principal we shoot it all; to show how beautiful life, moments and love is.

Philadelphia Engagement Session \\ Erin + Heather

These two.  Awesome.  Period.  We’re shooting their Wedding in a month also in Philadelphia.  We have yet to shoot a ton of stuff in Philly, but it is quickly becoming our fave.    The city is awesome.  Aga is a city girl at heart, so no wonder she really likes it, it’s a bit more quaint than NYC but it still has an amazing vibe and it’s simply beautiful.    Even, Marcin, who loves quietness and nature, is falling in love with Philly.   We can’t wait for Erin and Heather’s wedding and many many more weddings to be shot there, and as a matter of fact. ANYWHERE!

Ps. we finally got a nice slide-show thing going on, a little bigger images too, thanks to our awesome web designer, Dustin [his link is right on the bottom, so if you're a photographer and want a pretty website, he's your guy].  What do you think?

Personal // Photographer Retreat

Written and experienced by aga {marcin stayed home with the girls}

 

Few months back I was invited to a retreat, it happened this month. Group of photographers decided to get together in the middle of season and just enjoy each other’s company and have fun, but not without sharing and learning, so we shared.  A lot.   We listened, asked questions.  We learned.    It was amazing.   It was something that I almost did not go to because I’m pretty shy and more over; super nervous to talk in a bigger group, let’s just say “public speaking” is not my forte, even if the public consists of few folks.   Its’ crippling really.     So, I failed at it, bad but I’m totally ok with it.    We go through life avoiding the things that we think might make us fail or look bad, silly, stupid; but you know what?  It’s good to embrace failure once in a while; it’s even better to do it in a safe and amazing environment, among friends.  It makes you grow.

I could write a book about the experience.   One thing that I would strongly encourage other photographers to do; learn from each other, open up, give, give a lot.  As in the words of the amazingly generous Jenny, ”give way more than what you expect in return” {isn’t that an amazingly freeing idea?}, tnx Jenny.  Don’t be afraid to share.  Knowledge in our industry does not have to be solely dependent on expensive workshops and/or learning only from rock stars [I’m not saying those aren't valuable, they are].   We can all learn so much from each other and we can grow, together.  So, you might, like me, think you don’t have much to share?  Oh no, we all have something very very special and what makes us…well us.  Everyone has something to share and its worth to listen to everyone with an open heart.  Some are good with business, others with seo and/or social media and others with posing, or organization of business, or connecting with clients; embrace your own expertise and appreciate what others can share with you, those folks are all around you, they are your friends.

Thank you all for the amazing experience. My mind was blown.

Photo above by the smart and talented Nisly’s.   Thanks! To Britney&Joe, who are pretty damn cool and I really really love those down to earth, real and honest folks.  Kate, who’s so pretty and sweet and got us that awesome home in Hamptons. Candice for her inspiration and getting everyone into a hot tub in the middle of a rain storm.  Ed for dancing to 90′s rap/hip hop songs with me and sharing his mad OCF skills.   Mark for just being a cool dude I thought he would be.   Julie, for her honesty and fearlessness.  Joe for his voice of reason and leadership.   Steve for being so super sweet and happy and getting everyone onto google+.  Sherry for giving, giving, giving.   Nadine for being so quirky and honest and teaching us to be silly…embracing failure…  Caroline and Ben for being so cool and talented.  Mike for being so upbeat, full of energy and sharing so much.  Jenny, I mentioned before, huge inspiration and last but not least Gulnara, a brilliant photojournalist who’s been our friend since we first met in NYC, I care not to mention how many years ago.  You all rock.
