Northern Wind | Olympic Peninsula, Washington

"You're the Northern Wind
Sending shivers down my spine
You're like fallen leaves
In an autumn night

You're the lullaby
That's singing me to sleep
You are the other half
You're like a missing piece

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
You don't know
What you do to me

You are all four seasons
Rolled into one
You're like the cold December snow
In the warm July sun

I'm the jet black sky
That's just before the rain
Like the mighty current
Pullin' you under the waves

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
You don't know
What you do to me

I'm the darkest hour
Just before the dawn
And I'm slowly sinking
Into the slough of despond

Like an old guitar
Worn out and left behind
I have stories still to tell
They're of the healing kind

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
If I could just
Find you tonight
If I could just find you tonight
Oh my love"

We're so incredibly proud to finally show this shoot! We had the immense pleasure of producing a shoot for the inaugural issue of Dear Gray Magazine! Stephanie, the wonderful editor and creator of the magazine, approached us for a shoot that captured who Jeremiah and I were. From there we created this. We wanted something that felt like the two of us coming together. Jeremiah and I put ourselves into every shoot and wedding we do. Jeremiah is a little more rugged and natural where as I love the delicate soft and pretty side. One thing we wish to communicate to both our couples and other artists is the importance of putting your authentic self into each image and also understanding how your self and your story interacts with the couple's story. Understanding that and using that helps avoid trends or cliches while maintaining a classic, romantic feel.

You can find this editorial here, on the cover of Dear Gray Magazine!

A huge thank you to our incredible team who worked around the clock to make this a reality!
