Sophia and Atreyu met each other at an airport. Destiny made their layovers collide when she was on her way to Galapagos, and he was on his way home to Chile. Almost four years later, after many flights more, they eloped. Now, two years later, they live in Miami and wanted to celebrate their love with an anniversary photo shoot reminiscent of their elopement.

They drew inspiration from Burning Man, the Chilean circus culture, and a few other Chilean ethnic groups. Most of all, they wanted to stay away from portraying the typical Florida/Miami scene and focus on something more organic and natural that would transport them elsewhere. They also wanted to incorporate both forest and ocean imagery because Sophia comes from the forest side of Illinois, and Atreyu comes from Chile, which has beautiful coastline.

Don't miss all the color, textures, and quirkiness that represented their respective cultures including the handmade hat and headpiece, as well as the parasol, which had little hearts, typical from the Aymara from the north of Chile.
