This post isn’t an easy one. It comes backed with a lot of emotions, vulnerability, and love.
When we shot these pictures, I remember being so frustrated. The original vision wasn’t coming to life. The backdrop was falling over, it started raining, and I just wanted it to be perfect. If you know me at all, you know that when plans deviate, I have a hard time adjusting. I gave myself some time to breathe and when I just let go, we created these beautiful images.
Then life changed. It stopped. We lost Garrett. Words will never be able to describe how grateful I am for this man. His friendship was something I was so lucky to experience.
Now when I look back to this shoot, I don’t focus on the small things. Because to me, these happened exactly the way they needed to. The focus was on them and nothing else. It allowed me to focus on who they are and how beautiful and cosmic their love is. For a moment, I was let in and was able to witness and document something so otherworldly.
This is why I do what I do. To write history and create moments that will live on forever. I’m so thankful that I will have these memories of a beautiful night with two of my beautiful friends. That I can look back at these and so vividly hear his laugh and see his beautiful face. I miss you, G.
Cherish your loved ones and celebrate them as much as you can.
