7 countries in 7 months : a bit on scotland

This probably won’t come as a huge surprise to anyone, but we love to travel.  Our friends + family in Milwaukee are constantly commenting on how we’re never around, and always flying off here or there — but it’s what we love.

Jayden + I met each other because of travel.  Our jobs involved travel.  Our entire relationship relied on traveling to see each other in the beginning, and our current life continues to lean on the assurance that we will be able to travel when we want to see Jayden’s side of the family, in Australia.  We’re from two different countries; traveling is going to be a lifelong reality for us.

To us, seeing the world stretches us — who we are as individuals, as a couple, as inhabitants of an incredibly beautiful and diverse world.  We’re backpackers (yes, I had to learn to travel that light!) and photographers who loathe the term ‘tourist’ and deliberately avoid anything that caters to ‘tourists’. Jayden + I would much rather crash on the couch of someone local, and spend our entire trip chatting with them, visiting their favorite local spots, and photographing the people we meet while we’re there.  We’re always thrilled when complete strangers will let us take them for dinner, we chat for hours over fabulous local wine and leave as friends.  To us, traveling enables relationships.  Some of our favorite people on the planet have been people we’ve been blessed to cross paths with on our journeys, and we are so grateful for that.

Back in March + April, we took a trek to Scotland + Jordan with my brother, the ever-talented Robert (who is also our fabulous intern), and then journeyed on to Italy on our own.  Here are a few frames from our time in the very northern part of Scotland, as the boys wanted to check out Loch Ness and do their own search for ‘Nessie’ (the Loch Ness Monster).  Robert even made a hysterical documentary on our time there, which can be summed up in these ten minutes.  I’m so thankful for memories like these.

Speaking of travel, we’re planning our next trip to Australia — so please do let us know if you’ve got a wedding coming up, or if you’d like to chat about some other kind of shoot.  Our travel dates are somewhat flexible right now, so you can e-mail caroline@woodnotephotography.com and let us know what you have in mind, we’d love to hear from you!

More soon xx
