While bridal portraits taken in Europe are certainly very romantic, there’s also something to be said for couples who want to dive the deep seas or climb mountains. Thanks to Axioo, we got to share this amazing couple, Estelita and Kenny’s, journey. Thank you for taking the road less travelled and showing us that it’s all right to be yourselves.

Estelita: “We wanted our bridal portraits to be unique, and quite frankly, we did not want to make a trip specifically for photographs. We wanted to go on a great trip and have an awesome photographer capture it for us. Most importantly, we wanted the photos to represent us – a casual, not glamorous but still classy, adventurous and easygoing couple.”
