#Repost @vogueweddings ( @get_repost ) ・・・ Singer and bassist @adeline and @sinclairbolden , a partner at the event brand Everyday People, met through mutual friends years ago, but didn’t start dating until 2013 when they reconnected by chance. “It was as if I was meeting him for the first time—I had sort of love at first sight,” Adeline says. “After a couple of months tiptoeing around the idea of going on a date—he’s shy!—we went out for a drink, and we’ve been a couple ever since. I knew that day that he would be my husband.”⁣ ⁣ Tap the link in our bio to see all the photos from their Provence wedding. ⁣ ⁣ Photo by @goodlightworks #vogue #music #arts #nyc #wedding #france #joy #love #travel #photography #goodlightworks #darriser #iamdaressalaam

Bom dia Queen @kingmoniki O sol ainda está! DJ Moniki (and @djmoma aka Yung Acai - offscreen ) We are at home, in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. Futuristicly speaking, of course. Beautiful moments, like this, happen so often the camera must rest and let it live. The sun is hot. The tones are richly pigmented. The humans are alive! Beauty is in the air. Deep breaths. Deep beats. Deep connections. Saudades Salvador... Saudades beautiful Bahia!! It is Thursday, where there is a current tradition of 'throwing it back' to a moment perceived as past. Stay present, where it's always happening, always had been happening, always will be happening. #goodlightworks #iamdaressalaam #photographer #photography #travel #brasil #brazil #africa #salvadormeuamor #fashion #beauty #music #dj #model #goodvibes #brazilian #art #rich #pigment aka #melaninpoppin #newyork #nyc

Madeleine Woods Down by The River I met queen @madeleinealyse and another brilliant human being, king @ivan_gaskin last year. Impromptu/universally orchestrated happenings often result in life reflecting her beauty, her light on you... as a reminder of your own light. Truth and love walk hand and hand. The brilliance that we are walks amongst us. Shadowboxing is not a lost art. We are masters. Ready to flash that light on you, if needed!

Capoeira... né? Pequenos... fortes. Pequenos corpos marrons tocando música de revolução, resiliência, resistência, beleza, coragem, força, inteligência, alegria. Jogado com amor e compreensão. Jogado não para entretenimento. Cuidados pessoais. Boipeba Morerê Há um grupo de meninos, rapazes, crianças, jovens... que, a cada dia, podem ser vistos e ouvidos brincando de capoeira. não há multidões. nenhum gorro de gorjeta. sem fanfarra. eles andam nas estradas, brincando. muita alegria eles trazem cada vez que eu os vejo e ouço. Eles têm a coragem de se sentirem livres e brincam abertamente com essa liberdade, com essa liberdade, com esse sentimento. ● Little brown bodies playing music of revolution, resiliance, resistance, beauty, courage, strength, intelligence, joy. Played with love and understanding. Played not for entertainment. Self care. Boipeba. Morere.

Dona Maria • Hortofruticola Ela não tem e-mail, nem celular. Nem é realmente necessário quando você lida com frutas e vegetais em uma pequena ilha ... e realiza negócios em dinheiro. A moda antiga. O que ela tem é um sorriso brilhante, um jeito direto, um senso de humor (lógico... isso é a Bahia ) ... e ela tem frutas e vegetais que são reais - com sementes, sabor e nutrientes. Esta foi a segunda parada para conseguir provisões para a casa em Boipeba. A primeira parada é sempre buscar água. É importante saber o que é necessário e onde encontrá-lo. Né? • Maria She doesn't have email, nor a cellular. Neither are really necessary when you deal in fruits and vegetables on a small island... and conduct business in cash. The old fashion way. What she does have js a brilliant smile, a direct manner, a sense of humor (of course... this is Bahia )... and she has fruits and vegetables that are real - with seeds, flavor and nutrients. This was the second stop to get provisions for the house in Boipeba. The first stop is always to procure water. It is important to know what one needs and where to find it. #photographer #darriser #goodlightworks #travel #brazil #brasil #fruits #vegetables #life #love #food #farm #simple #boipeba #smile #sorriso #beauty #island #ilha #feliz #bahia #portrait #canon #newyork #tradition #comida #colores #pretas #fotografia #create

Nem remotamente sentindo drones. Eu me lembro de sua gênese e uso primário ... até hoje. Embora ... um sobrevôo sob a cobertura da luz do dia com uma visão clara do alvo ... isso é massa! O alvo: uma cama de granola coberta por uma camada de pelúcia fresca de coco (hahah ), um dedo grande de gengibre fresco, uma banana com sementes (frutas reais têm sementes e benefícios reais ), iogurte (eu sei que eu sei .. mas algo tem que ajudar a reabastecer a flora intestinal depois de comer algo que esgotou há alguns dias atrás ) e leite de amêndoa. Coberto com sementes de chia ... ch ch ch chia. Para toda a minha comida é a vida das pessoas. Você sabe quem você é. Seja vegan. Vegetariano. Omnívoro Ou qualquer outra coisa. Para aqueles que se divertem com a consciência. Not even remotely feeling drones. I remember their genesis and primary use... to date. Though... a fly-over under the cover of daylight with a clear view of the target... I'm all over that! The target: a bed of granola covered in a plush layer of blended fresh coconut meat (hahah ), a large finger of fresh ginger, a banana with seeds (real fruits have seeds and real benefits ), yogurt (I know I know... but something has to assist in replenishing the gut flora after eating something that depleted it a couple of days ago ) and almond milk. Topped with chia seeds... ch ch ch chia. To all my food is life people. You know who you are. Be you vegan. Vegetarian. Omnivorous. Or whatever else. To those who eat with awareness. #food #health #videography #life #ginger #meat #frutas #fruits #granola #breakfast #eattolive #fitlife #goodlightworks #knowthyself #iamdarresalaam #darriser #igetitfrommymomma #tradition #chia #coconut #water #drones #eat #awareness

Reggae e Flores Para Vocês... Meus pensamentos sobre esta imagem. Este dia. Este momento... Preencha as páginas do livro de hoje com palavras, anotações, rabiscos e desenhos do que você quer ser. O que você é, no núcleo. Coma alimentos e beba líquidos que preencham sua estrutura com os ingredientes da energia viva e saudável. Se sentir bem. Fique quente. Deixe as pétalas caírem onde puderem. Você está construindo Springs e cortejando Summers ● My thoughts on this image. This day. This moment... Fill the pages of today's book with words, annotations, scribbles and sketches of what you want to be. What you are, at the core. Eat foods and drink liquids that fill your structure with the ingredients of living, healthy energy. Feel good. Stay warm. Let the petals fall where they may. You're building Springs, and courting Summers. #reggae #flores #mulheres #pretas #flowers #coconut #brazil #naturalmente #bahia #life #food #health #strengh #courage #truth #spring #summer #samsung #galaxy #2019 #photographer #travel #brasil #igetitfrommymomma #tradition

The magic number... Image 3 Slow shutter, shaky hand, lunacy... Late night lunacy and other ecliptic musings. Ainda para ir dormir. Ela estava muito cheia para dormir. Sempre há uma comunicação clara entre a lua, o sol... e aqueles que conheço para ser da minha tribo... meu clã... minha mochila. Embora o espírito do lobo solitário é forte em mim, há aqueles que me vêem, como eu os vejo... o sol, a lua... na terra. Este foi o primeiro Eclipse com que me sentei. Esta é a primeira vez que tenho sido capaz de ver com os meus próprios olhos, a beleza da sua superfície. A lua é muito mais do que uma esfera que emite luz. E sua pele, não é nenhuma superfície fosca de caráter. A superfície dela é uma história. Assim como toda a nossa pele é história... contada, e viveu. O espírito do lunático está maravilhosamente forte esta manhã. Eu ainda tenho que ler as muitas interpretações deste Eclipse lua cheia. O que eu sei é que há poder e beleza na experiência. Poder no sol. Poder na terra. Poder na sombra que a terra, e todos os seres vivos podem lançar sobre outros seres. Sombras revelam muita beleza, muita verdade. O sol brilha no outro lado deste planeta azul, lançando uma sombra sobre a lua que inspirou esta noite inteira, sóbrio, derramamento de Lunacy beautif. Que todas as luas, luas, Lunas... estejam cheias. Que os sóis continuem a iluminar e a lançar sombras. Podemos ver a beleza e o valor do que a sombra revela. Onde há sombras, há sempre luz. #fullmoon #eclipse #bloodmooneclipse #photographer #writer #wolves #untamed #spirit #mothernature #moon #sun #lua #luna #sol #goodlightworks #brazil #salvador #bahia #lunacy #howl #lobos #superbloodmoon #3

Image 2. Birds singing, slowly building a chorus. Moon setting a course to set, and pre sunrise light slowly illuminating the landscape of Salvador. Image photographed at 2:12 am at the peak of the eclipse. I've yet to go to sleep. She was too full for sleeping. Always, there is a clear communication between the moon, the sun... and those I know to be of my tribe... my clan... my pack. Though the spirit of the lone wolf is strong in me, there are those that see me, as I see them... under sun, under moon... on earth. This was the first eclipse that I sat with. This is the first time I have been able to see with my own eyes, the beauty of her surface. The moon is much more than a light emitting orb. And her skin, is no matte surface void of character. Her surface is story. Just as all of our skin is story... told, and lived. The spirit of the lunatic is beautifully strong this morning. I have yet to read the many interpretations of this full moon eclipse. What I know is that there is power and beauty in the experience. Power in the sun. Power in the earth. Power in the shadow that the earth, and all living beings may cast upon other beings. Shadows reveal much beauty, much truth... there is light too in shadows. #fullmoon #eclipse #bloodmooneclipse #photographer #writer #wolves #untamed #spirit #mothernature #moon #sun #lua #luna #sol #goodlightworks #brazil #salvador #bahia #lunacy #howl #lobos #superbloodmoon #goodmorning #bomdia #today #hoje #mlkday

Seems my two other sets of inspired words have been absorbed into the web that is the internet and social media space(less ). Gone somewhere, or nowhere. If these words make it, with this post that wouldn't post until after deleting this app and reinstalling... if these words arrive to reach your devices, your hands, maybe even your hearts... this is a big up to the 4 women tagged in the image. Very special people pictured here. Big hearts. Brilliant minds. Clarity of purpose. Flexible beings. Strong beings. Honest beings. I have a great deal of love and gratitude towards how these summer 2019 days in Salvador are flowing. Like water. New. Fresh. Alive and full of the seasoning of love has been my daily meals. This is a simple salutation to that energy, to that reality. To these women. #luz #naturallight #sunset #pordosol #evening #bahia #friends #family #love #light #health #brazil #brasil #summer #verao #brilliant #goodlightworks #photography #goodvibes #power #women #beauty #strength #flexibility #flow #open #perspective

Most often... I am asked to get in the picture. The other side of the camera has become quite the comfort zone. So shaking is required at times... gentle agitation to move the waters around a bit. Or big jumps to shift paradigms should I follow the wonderful feeling that always emerges after the landing and the jumping. I dont remember the last time I drove a manual transmission car. Yesterday, with the patience and guidance of @giacroc I drove from Diogo, along the peaceful scenic coastline that changed into the urban setting that is Salvador. I safely made it to deliver @talulamel to her home and allowed @nabiyahbe to breath a deep breath if fresh air. To learn what has been forgotten is truly a beautiful and frustrating experience. But beauty is the prevailing virtue. Muitíssimo obrigado Giacomo for the driving lesson, the patience and the portrait. Sometimes the place to be is in front of the camera.

The vibe of the tribe that I have found and been found by reflects precisely what I love about being here in Bahia... in Salvador. The city can open hearts, heal wounds, welcome the solo traveler as family and encourage feet to move and the voice to rise in celebration of life. To the beautiful moments that were today. To the beautiful moments that are to be. Thank you Salvador da Bahia for welcoming me as family and for inviting me to continue to feel at home.

"The Coronation" Salvador da Bahia 2019 All Rights Reserved Good Light Works Photography by Dar Riser -There is no need to wait to be crowned queen, or king. Everyday there is a crown above you. Moments like these are a clear reflection of the beauty and truth present in the everyday. Bahia has poured out moment after moment after moment of beauty. Sometimes tragic, sometimes simply maravilhoso... far beyond words. There are stories here, as there are everywhere. Stories untold and largly unseen with a surface glance. The surface can be so beautiful at times. So seemingly full of alegria. There is also the threads that make up the beautiful tapestry. Some are tattered. Torn. Dancing a samba as the onlookers and entertainers try to not see. At times trying is long forgotten and much becomes invisible to the eye. To the heart. To the senses. I still see beauty. Beauty in her existence. In his humor. His smile. The drive of life to continue... and maybe even samba over the bumpy cobblestones that can find their way underfoot at times. To dance like you don't care that people watch... that is a grand display of beauty... no matter how broken the surface, the mask... no matter how tattered the costume. É verão neste cidade maravilhosa. A beautifully mad, hot summer... and I love Salvador for what she has shared with me in the short time that I have breathed her air. The prints will be for sale in Spring. More details to come in March 2019 May harmony follow you. #prints #bahia #salvador #brasil #brazil #pordosol #sunset #divine #crown #king #queen #natural #mystic #beauty #sungod #sungoddess #look #up #verao #summer #life #seasons #love #travel #photographer #goodlightworks #goodvibes #darriser #today #sun
