Kirstin + Chris Adventure Engagement Shoot - Bali - Indonesia View Post »
When we first met Kirstin and Chris it was at the TWO MANN Alumni Retreat in Bali with 35 world-class professional photographers. They were nestled together hugging and laughing with everyone around them. Their gregarious vibe immediately drew us in and we found ourselves deep into stories and their quick hypnotic wit. Taking them on an engagement adventure shoot through the rice fields and sacred temples of Bali felt like something outside of time. What better way to celebrate their engagement than by being adorned by the “joy” of Bali?
Emily + Pete Villa Cimbrone Wedding - Ravello - Amalfi Coast - Italy View Post »
If you’re looking for an adventure wedding and you are in love with Italy, look no further than Villa Cimbrone. It’s the jewel of Ravello, Italy along the Amalfi Coast. It is an enchanting 12th century building nestled on cliffs overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s only accessible by foot along a panoramic stone path from the center of Ravello. This enchanting villa has castle-like architecture, stone fireplaces, tiled floors, antiques, oil paintings, cliff-side gardens, and friendly faces that greet you with the most exquisite feeling. The ambience here is like stepping into a medieval poem. Having your reception dinner in their medieval Crypt will transport you and your guests back in time.
