Tatiana and Pedro asked me to travel down to Colombia to photograph their wedding at a late night gathering 9 months before. It just so happened to be his sister’s wedding on the Northern Coast of Colombia. I laughed and was flattered but thought nothing of it at the time. Fast forward 9 months and here I am, at the top of the Andes mountains, 3 hours northeast of Bogota in the quiet town of Paipa. I can’t say for sure whether this is the most amazing place I’ve ever been, but it ranks in the top two. These two were so hospitable and generous during my stay that actually photographing their wedding felt like an afterthought. I was a genuine guest and I’ve made lifelong friends with their family, their country, and their home.
