I’m Writing this as I’m still coming off the high of the wonderful experience of photographing Dana & Justin’s elopement in one of the most beautiful places in the world.In 2013 I went on a month and a half long road trip in the US. I traced Robert Frank’s 1955 route across this magnificent country. It was much more of a looking than photographing trip for me. As someone who grew up in a highly American influenced place, my fascination with Uncle Sam is something I have been aware of from a very early age.One of the places I never made it to during that trip was the Utah Mountains. Last March I was fortunate enough to be invited to document an elopement in a spectacular location – Amangiri Resort. Now, this is a place I had no idea even existed before Dana and Justin contacted me. After a quick online research I was blown away. Of course none of that came close to the experience of being there. Not even the photos I’m sharing with you here. The landscape is something that is, if I could just pick one word, unimaginable. The colors and rock formations are simply ungraspable, especially for a city boy like myself. The resort itself is just another thing I can blabber about for hours. At first the concrete, minimalistic architecture seemed unfitting but after spending some time there it quickly became much more organic and sensible in my eyes. I absolutely love it. The fact that it is hidden in the mountains adds a wicked-mysterious twist to it. Amangiri – I’m hooked.
