A four-letter word which is often overused, carelessly, without thinking.
I love wedding photography and wedding industry in general, as it is a part of business which shows us love, happiness and the beauty of life.
Unfortunately, I feel it sometimes tends to trivialise love.
People often look at photographs of people in love, getting married and think: wow, that’s easy – why doesn’t it happen to me? Or why did I fail at that?
The certain thing is: love is not easy. It has never been and will never be. But although love is beautiful, powerful, amazing and makes us go crazy, it is often super difficult. So be ready to fight, be ready to forgive and never take the person for granted.
To love means to accept another person as fully as possible, support them in fighting for their dreams and supporting them when they sometimes lose strength to fight for/against something by themselves. Love is this totally crazy power that brings people together even in crazier ways. That makes them leave everything and take the biggest risk in their lives. It means doing stupid and crazy things that you would never have thought you could ever do. It means taking chances. It means being completely unreasonable in the cutest possible ways.
And – sometimes love beings when all the rules fail.
Happy Valentine’s Day – cheers to the perfect connection with the imperfect person.
I felt like we had a secret, just the two of us. You know? Like that thing when you just wanna be with the one person the whole time? And you feel like the two of you understand something that nobody else gets. I could just tell her everything about myself. And I’d never had anybody like that in my life before. I felt like, finally, I could truly be myself without being ashamed, without being embarrassed.
If you believe in love at first sight, you will never stop looking.
It’s like you become more you. Which normally is like… *funny faces*… But now it’s okay… because the person, like, whoever, they chose to take all that on. All that weird stuff. Whatever’s wrong or bad or hiding in you. Suddenly it’s alright. You don’t feel like such a freak anymore.

you might not have been my first love
but you were the love that made
all other loves
You make me thank god for every mistake I ever made
Because each one led me down the path that brought me to you
Cindy: What did it feel like when you fell in love?
Grandma: Oh… oh dear, I don’t think I found it.
Cindy: Even with grandpa?
Grandma: Maybe a little, in the beginning. He didn’t really have any regard for me as a person. You gotta be careful with that. You gotta be careful with the person you fall in love is worth it… to you.
Cindy: I never want to be like my parents. I know they must’ve loved each other at one time, right? To just get it all out of the way before they had me. How do you trust your feelings when they can just disappear like that?
Grandma: I think the only way you can find out is to have the feeling. You’re a good person. You have the right to say, I do trust. I do trust myself.
Dan: And you left him, just like that?
Alice: It’s the only way to leave. I don’t love you anymore. Goodbye.
Dan: Supposing you do still love them?
Alice: You don’t leave.
Dan: You’ve never left someone you still love?
I love the idea of relationships as being the ultimate team – someone you share everything with, who completely and utterly backs you, and whom you give to completely unselfishly. It’s easier said than done, but we all need something to aspire to.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
It’s like coming home after a long trip. That’s what love is like. It’s like coming home.

May love find you.
Even when you are
hiding from it
If the sun don’t shine
If the world’s on fire
If the oceans rise
Our love will survive
If the world stops spinning round
And heaven falls to the ground
I’ll be by your side
[Our love will survive – Wild Belle]
Anything beautiful is worth getting hurt for.
