"Photos are the closest thing we have to time travel. Their inexplicable ability to transport us to a different time and place, rousing the memories and vivid senses of a fleeting moment is a beautiful gift to share with other people."
Dima and Sudqi fell head-over-feet in love at a young age – it wasn’t long before they were hurrying down the aisle to be married. When we grow older together, we forget that we change and we grow individually as well as in our love. Being in love over a long period of time means saying yes to this person again and again. It means encouraging them to grow in themselves trusting that you created space in the relationship for each other’s freedom. Dima and Sudqi are not the same people they were when they first made their commitment but their love is steadfast and strong. In honour of those changes and how far they’ve come, they wanted an anniversary experience that would celebrate them as they are now. Retreating into nature, away from the pressures of everyday life, gave them space to reconnect by taking pleasure in the simplicity of each other’s company in a magical place.
