This Rowena Crest engagement session is one of the highlights of my year for so many reasons. These two are special to me. They are funny and kind and easy. I first met them last fall when we had coffee to talk about their wedding plans. They don't have that bubblegum romance that you see all over instagram. They make fun of the other person if they're taking themselves too seriously, they laugh about their mistakes and always make truly understanding each other a priority. Their relationship has layers and each one is beautiful. I also don't think it's possible for José not to make Faith laugh in any situation and that's another reason why these two are made for each other.
For their engagement session they wanted something nature-y and dramatic so we decided on Rowena Crest! We could not believe how freaking beautiful it was!!! It had major Iceland vibes and we were all over it. It was super chilly and windy as heck but Faith and José were total troopers. It's natural to be worried that major winds will mess up your hair but I always tell clients not to be afraid of wind!! It adds such a romantic and magical energy to any photo. Team wind forever!!
The day after we did their engagements at Rowena Crest, they messaged me with some really beautiful news. It made me remember why I love and cherish this job so much. I'm not just taking photos, I'm capturing history. Your life is always changing and it's impossible to be completely in-the-moment all the time. When I capture your present moment it's so you can look back later and remember every little detail about what it meant to you. For Faith and José, these images are the last moments before something life changing. That's everything to me.
I feel so lucky to be a part of their story and can't wait to capture their elopement in a few months!
