Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Val and Shane, I won’t lie, writing a little intro for you two here is tough as I know I really shouldn’t write a whole essay, but damn I want to! From our first Skype with Val and Shane we had an immediate connection with them on so many levels. Not least of all because we both were getting married/got married the first place we ever travelled to as a couple, for us Mozambique and for them Aruba, and they love travelling and their furkids as much as we do. When we finally met them we hit it off straight away while we explored the interior of Aruba for their portrait session and then getting to hang out and get to know all their friends and family for the whole weekend was so incredibly special for us. They got married on the beach at the Divi Phoenix Resort and honestly, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Guys, thank you so much for including us in your magical wedding adventure!

  • A beautiful series of events unfolding with all the emotion! Each picture is brimming with happiness and excited anticipation, and well shit, there is honestly just nothing better! Both while watching this unfold and while editing it, I have had the biggest grin just glued to my face - but really, how can you not?! 😍
  • Is it too soon for another silhouette shot? I reckon when the sunset is that good, and the gradient in the sky that magical, it’s never too soon ☺️
  • It may be quite apparent from looking at our feed, but we LOVE black and white photos! Their timelessness just rocks our world! The love affair definitely start back when we both used to develop our own photos in a darkroom, and I guess that love has just grown stronger with time, just like Pippa and G right here ☺️
  • Kel and Rich did their wedding their way, and because of that, it was just too damn magical!
  • A photo you can feel and hear. The joy, overwhelming happiness and excitement on Pippa’s face is just so tangible! Plus if you’re not this happy after just marrying your human, what are you even doing?
  • A magical palette of warmth. Pippa and Graeme, your love was worth the wait 🔥
  • Just close your eyes and breathe deeply... not something you get many opportunities to do on an insanely busy and high energy wedding day - but so important to  do to re-centre yourselves!
  • Pippa and G. What a day!
  • It’s Women’s Day here, so here’s to all the incredible female relationships of building each other up and those lifelong bonds of having a sisters back 💜
  • Channeling her inner vintage Hollywood vibes 🔥
  • That winter sunset light tho 😱
  • When you just need to get a better look at what’s going on! Kids at wedding usually bring such a fun energy to things!

  • This weekend exceeded all expectations! 🙌 Sooo many good bands, the friendliest people, and delicious veggie food. The mud and rain even made it a proper English festival experience 🌧 This was our first @downloadfest and we WILL be back! Thank you @the_szerd for enjoying the same noisy music as me and always being my band buddy 😘
  • This summer in Europe has been epic for bands so far! Another one from our “must-see” band list. Alice in Chains 🔥 Definite highlights were this song, Them Bones, and Nutshell, which Jerry Cantrell dedicated to Layne Stayley. Totes emosch 😥 @aliceinchains
  • I played bass for a long time and this man was my bass crush 😍 #justinchancellor was worth every second of the 20 year wait to watch this man play 🙌 ... and I got his plectrum ! That’s getting framed.
  • Tool 🙌 I waited 20 years to see this band and it finally happened last night in Berlin, of all places. They were a massive influence on my own band and were actually one of the reasons @the_szerd and I started dating over 15 years ago. I even played in a Tool tribute band back in the day. Excellent times!
  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
