Once upon a time I was on a mini vacation with my dear husband on our favorite tropical island. We had just finished shooting a gorgeous wedding in Ponce, on the mainland. I was thinking how awesome it would be to do a portrait session (we actually tried doing one of ourselves with much difficulty) And then I randomly saw a couple walk past holding a canon with a prime lens attached. A crazy idea flew into my head to run up and ask them if they wanted to do a session swap--but they had already past and I thought it would be really creepy to follow them and hunt them down. But I decided to watch for them to pass again and ask. Sure enough they walked back by. And me being the crazy that I am ran up, introduced myself, and asked them. They said, sure! And to top it off--they were both originally from Eastern Europe. Small world, for sure! We exchanged numbers and websites and planned to meet up that day. As soon as I saw Jauhien's first photo on his website I knew I was going to love his work. I wasn't wrong! See a few of our photos on his website, here. He also does film which is amazing. So all that to say, despite some pretty ominous clouds and downpours, we had an amazing session riding around on a golf cart. Full of laughs, stories, and ending with awesome tacos. What could be better than that?
Jauhien and Tasha, it was such a blessing to meet you both. Thanks for a wonderful experience and being the kind of people that I absolutely love! I wish you all the best in travels and in life!
