There must be some lucky stars in the charts for me this year. Every day I find myself getting a chance to shoot so many wonderful subjects from all over the world.
Jodeyne and I have a friend named Åsa and she is a very wonderful young lady (see I put young lady) Wink! Over the years of skating in shows we have had the pleasure to be on stage with her and her amazing spirit. Skating has been a wonderful experience for us all and it brings us back together over and over again. This year we found ourselves on the ice working together once again in Florida and I was asked one of the most wonderful questions to my ears, “Will you photograph my wedding?” I looked at her and said, “I would be honored to, where and when”? “SPAIN”, she said as I started to smile. “I wouldn’t miss it for the world”! I have shot many weddings over the years and I have to say one of the most wonderful moments I see is when you look into a brides eyes (especially your friends) and you can see the excitement in their eyes because they know they can trust you. What a feeling.
That evening after some choreography at the rink for the Christmas show we are helping to produce in Niagara Falls this winter, we went for some R&R on Clearwater Beach. I know right, such a stressful life. As the sun was going down I took the opportunity to get some shots of Åsa dancing and flying around on the beach. Oh the feeling of happiness and freedom oozes from this lady. If you ever have a chance to meet this Swedish Gem, you will get to stop and to talk to one of the nicest people that you could ever meet.
Big Hugs to you Åsa, your just amazing!
