Rain, Woods & a Bright Red VW Bus
A short time ago, I got an email from a local creative. He wanted to know if Jade and I would be up for collaborating and doing a photo-shoot together. This fellow turned out to be Mark Mirocha, a Portland based lifestyle and wedding photographer with some remarkable talent. Over the course of a few weeks, we emailed each other and planned to meet up to hash out the details of our shoot.
Mark has a pretty awesome instragram stream and as I was thumbing through it one day before our meeting, I noticed and commented on a beautiful VW Bus he had taken a #soloparking instagram of. I have been a HUGE fan of VW Buses and Vans since I was a kid and have always wanted one of my own. Mark commented back and wanted to know if getting a VW Bus for our shoot would be something I would be up for, and honestly I squealed a little bit, I was so excited. We finally were able to meet and hash out some of the details. Mark then used his expert nextworking skills to find this beautiful, restored VW Bus. It looked like something out of a movie.
Not only does Mark have a beautiful eye, but a beautiful heart as well. The love and admiration that he has for his wife, creating, collaborating and adventuring is something that I understand all too well. We were instant friends.
Here are a few of our favorites from that magical, rainy day. A big thank you goes out to Black Sweet Raspberry and Trust Co for donating props. And Mark, thank you for choosing us to be a part of your vision and for turning that vision into a reality…
