There are essentials to life…
Some come in the form of food. Some come in the form of money. Yet, the real ones come in the form of magic. Special moments that can never be replicated, replaced or removed from time. The moments where you step back and have to force yourself to breathe because beauty kept your brain from telling your lungs to work.
That is exactly what happened. Magic happened.
I had the honor of gifting my best friend and her fiance my services to take their engagement photos in my favorite place on this planet. The Montage at Laguna Beach.
I could feel that something big was bound to happen as the temperature got cooler, the clouds got darker and the photos got better. Thus, Mother Nature made a featured appearance. The rain changed from kissing to pouring and within the next moment I found myself hiding from the heavens as we bordered Sea and Land.
This was magic. Mother Nature, passion and a serious connection of human love ignited electricity that I captured with my camera.
There are essentials to life… The most important one is to find magic in each moment. Some magic is bigger than others. Some work hard to stay lit. But it remains there. Magic is in the mundane. Magic is in routine and it is in new beginnings. The secret is finding it.
The easiest way to find it is through LOVE.
Sometimes you get the opportunity to get stuck in a cave with nothing else to do except photograph your best friend and her life partner. When you get that opportunity… You. Must. Take. It.
This was that moment that will never be replicated, replaced and will stick in time.
There are essentials to life… and love is the best way to find magic.
