Grab your favorite blanket and join me by the virtual bonfire as I spill the beans on a winter escapade filled with laughter, hot chocolate, and the tantalizing promise of the Northern Lights.

Picture this: a stunning Arctic night, two delightful couples, and me armed with a camera, chasing auroras and making memories.

We kicked off our adventure with dreams of vibrant lights dancing across the sky. Spoiler alert: the Northern Lights were playing hard to get that night. But you know what? That didn’t stop us from having an absolute blast. Our journey took us to different spots, each more picturesque than the last. And yes, we had a bonfire – the kind that warms not just your hands but your soul.

As we huddled around the crackling fire, swapping stories and sipping on hot chocolate, the Arctic chill seemed to fade away. There’s something magical about the way a shared cup of cocoa can turn a freezing night into a cozy haven. Add some snacks to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a perfect winter evening.

Now, about those elusive Northern Lights. Turns out, they weren’t in the mood to make an appearance. But guess what? It didn’t matter one bit. Why? Because the real magic was in the unplanned moments. The laughter that echoed under the star-studded Arctic sky, the warmth of the bonfire, and the sheer joy of being surrounded by snowy landscapes – those were the real stars of the show.

“I cannot say enough good things about Maria and our experience with her for a night-time photoshoot in the wilderness of Norway! Maria was such a joy to work with- from the first Instagram message to the quick delivery of our amazing photos! She was so helpful prior to the trip regarding outfits, props, etc. And when I surprised her the days before our shoot with a photo style request and prop request, she immediately made arrangements to meet the request. The evening of the photoshoot felt so natural and fun- even though night photography is a different animal than daytime. Despite having to “not move!” for a few minutes, the shoot never felt uncomfortable or awkward. Just like we were going on an adventure with a new friend. If you are looking for someone to capture your Norwegian wedding, elopement, or just a fun trip- Maria with Born Wild Photography is your person! I’m already trying to come up with an excuse to work with her again!!!” -Jean

So, if you’re thinking of chasing the Northern Lights, here’s a little secret: the lights are just a part of the story. The real magic is in the unexpected moments, the cozy gatherings, and the memories you create along the way. Because in the end, it’s not just about the destination; it’s about the journey, hot chocolate stains and all. Cheers to chasing dreams and finding joy in the most unexpected places!
