Laura and Iñigo were married in San Pelayo de Montija in the province of Burgos in Northern Spain. The town has a population of about 10 people so Indara of El Sofá Amarillo had a pretty amazing task to create a beautiful venue in the middle of a field for 200 + guests. Although it was a logistical feat for Indara and her team, it was totally amazing. She did a great job, eh? It was just incredible to be staying in such a tiny historical village and be a part of this huge explosion of love. San Pelayo is really enchanting and we were lucky enough to get put up in a lovely bed and breakfast right next to the venue. Thanks to my girl Paula G. for second shooting and laughing with me through the wild drive up North. Laura and Iñigo have amazing friends and families who love these two to the moon and back. I feel so lucky that we got to be a part of it all.
Aloha! We're here in Hawai'i and we're ready. We are getting installed in this new (sort of?) place for us and trying to enjoy the process (hard!). Starting in a new place is challenging in so many ways but we are feeling really positive and have already met lots of great people. Needless to say, I would love to talk to you about your wedding photography on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Get in touch at info(at)bikinibirdie.com. I also love to shoot happy families and drooling babies. I'll see you in the summer, España.
These three are super special, super talented, super friends. We did some photos of them for for an upcoming creative project. Pretty much the most un-Hawaiian looking photos ever. Long pants? Graffiti? Are we really in Kona?
I promise, it's over. There are no more blog posts from the Baltic adventure after this. Our last stop was Germany. We explored the port of Warnemunde and also Lubeck. Looking over these photos now, it is hard to imagine they were all taken fairly close together geographically and all within the same day. The Baltic Sea sunbathers contrast to the gray morning skies and raincoats in Lubeck. I skipped most of the sights in this edit and went for what I liked best.
This is the the last moment before we all packed into our tiny car full of sad relatives headed to the airport to leave Spain behind. Kalaii had to give those gallinas a little bit of love before he took off for Hawaii. It was a long adventure to get here, and we got to see some loved ones en route. We have arrived on the Big Island and I am really excited to start working as a wedding photographer here in Hawaii. Of course, we aren't giving up our Spanish summers. Bikini Birdie version español lives on and we are booking summer 2014 now in Spain. Aloha!
I just arrived in New York and have closed the wedding season in Spain. We leave for Hawaii in a week and won't return to Spain until next season. It feels good to be visiting friends and family here in the US and I wanted to share a little glimpse into the fun and beauty I was a part of during the amazing summer under the sun.
In Sweden we visited Malmö and Stockholm during the Baltic tour. The weather was damp and cold the day we strolled through Malmö, but the sun was shining in Stockholm and the Swedes came out to enjoy it.
This is Valencia's own Santiago Calatrava's Turning Torso in Malmö. The tallest building in Scandanavia, where the windows don't even open.
