LUIS + CLAUDIA: A LOVE STORY IN THE SOUTH OF SPAIN

Half way across the world, I landed in a country where the sun kisses your shoulders with warmth and the mountains fill your lungs with only the freshest air. Spain feels other-worldly. The roads are like knots tied around mountains, winding you towards hidden towns and towering views. Remains of ancient fortresses wait to be discovered, and rural farms display handcrafted cheese waiting to be tasted. 

Between the natural beauty and the remnants of history are stories of love and life, romance and intimacy. This is the story of Luis & Claudia. They have such a quiet & sensitive connection with each other I felt privileged to be able to photograph it. We took an adventure to Parque Natural Sierra De Grazalema and found ourselves in the middle of something truly beautiful. 

Real love stories don’t have dictators, they have participants. Love is an ever-changing, complicated, choose-your-own adventure narrative that offers the world but guarantees nothing.
— Donald Miller
That’s what love does - it pursues blindly, unflinchingly, and without end.
— Bob Goff
