Traveling Light Film 2017

At least 2-3 times a week I tell this amazing story about how I met this guy in Ibiza late 2012. How he started a photo lab together with his friend and how on earth it’s possible that they employ over 30 people at this moment. Film was dead, remember? But at the beginning of 2017 he surprised me again. “Hey Wes, I was thinking about organizing this event, Traveling Light Film… What do you think, wanne help me out?”  Enthusiastic as always I instantly agreed without thinking too much about the consequences. A couple of sleepless months later I stood on this stage to talk to this amazing crowd. Probably the most inspiring  4 days in my photography career, cannot thank everybody enough for the good talks, the encouraging words and the amazing feedback.

And Albert, thank you for encouraging me to explore more and for believing in the gibberish I have to tell.

Torroella de Montgrí is going to explode early November 2018 so keep an eye on Traveling Light Film website for dates and tickets : https://travelinglight.eu/

90% of the time we sat in this amazing theater listening to inspiring speakers, at dinner tables talking to the rest of our amazing family, or at this really cool place called ‘La Sala’, drinking cerveza’s or fantastic Spanish wines…  So only a couple of frames from the days leading to the event.

Incredibly proud of the guy at the right, my friend Albert Roig, for pulling off that one event where we all were dreaming of… Done, done, on to the next one!

Nele & Steven {Wedding in Hasselt}

Every wedding is unique, every wedding is so different and this one was freaking awesome…

PS: there’s a new kid in town, Lieke Biesemans from Stories by Mabel, she can style your wedding but first and foremost she can help you to tell an amazing story.

 

I shall never forget their faces…

I shall never forget Nele’s face when she discovered the present Steven had carefully put together as a surprise for his wife to be. On the morning of her wedding, she opened a little mint green box and saw it was filled with love, a letter, jewellery and a ticket for a live show by Pharrell Williams. For “Happy” was the song that suited them perfectly. The perfect gift, on a perfect day.

I shall never forget Steven’s face when he arrived at the villa, where Nele got dressed in the morning. Slightly nervous. A face filled with anticipation. Carrying the wedding bouquet he fetched himself in the morning – seated on a vintage Vespa. A perfect drive, on a perfect day.

I shall never forget the faces of their family and friends, when Nele came down the stairs. They watched beauty descend. And saw Steven’s reaction to that. One could do nothing else but to grab for one’s handkerchief. A perfect “first-see”, on a perfect day.

I shall never forget Steven and Nele’s faces when they sat together under that big old tree. As their ceremonial speaker, I took them on a journey. And while travelling, we filled vintage suitcases with stories, with drawings by children’s hands and with the vows they exchanged. At the end of the ceremony, the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams made all cheer. A perfect wedding ceremony, on a perfect day.

I shall never forget the sun that lit up their day, strengthening the pastel colours in the best way possible. Warming up their beautiful lunch table. Perfect styling, on a perfect day.
I shall never forget their faces.

Happy.
Perfect.
Just like the pictures.

  • Katrien - I’d love to see the faces of Steven and Nele when they watched these pictures for the first time.

    I joined this ceremony from the back and with a big pair of sunglasses (to hide the tears that is…). It feels like I’m back in that beautiful garden with this lovely couple, thanks to these AMAZING pictures.
