Bolinas, California – August 28th 2015
One year has passed since the first email. I still remember the time and the place where I was when I read it. « We want you to be our wedding photographer in Bolinas, California. » G & C.
Here I am… Bolinas. Peace Barn. This is the place where the ceremony and reception will take place, surrounded by their family and friends. Surrounded by greenery and bordered by the lagoon, the place is magical, just like them.
Gillian & Cameron couldn’t have found any other place to celebrate their wedding. The thin rain running on my face makes me believe that I’m not dreaming. 3 days before, we were together in Sutro Baths for their engagement session. I was captivated by the immensity of their love that showed through in front of my camera and it made me forget the beauty of the place. I like to say that whatever the place, the connexion I build with my couples as well as moments of sharing are a priority to me; these two proved me right once more.
San Francisco, Bolinas, Peace Barn, Briarcombe, such places that have become unforgettable thanks to the magic of their story. A part of me stayed there with you both. I can’t find the words to write here. To write would be to admit that a page has to be turned and I don’t want to close this book. Through my pictures, I just want to let you feel what I’ve felt by their side.
This story, your story, will be engraved in my memory forever.
I keep in mind your words to me : « Thierry, we are thankful our pathes have crossed in this life ».
Me too Gillian & Cameron, me too…
