EBONY & KEELAN | CANGGU, BALI

It was almost two years ago that Keelan first emailed me. As a new dad and a photographer himself, I connected with the words on my screen immediately. Roo (my son) and Roark (Keelan and Ebony’s son) are only a few months apart, which meant that while I hadn’t met Keelan, I understood his world and I knew the explosion of emotions he was feeling.

He told me about the things he loves and the things he can’t live without. He told me about his home and his family. He allowed me into his world, without us even meeting.

It’s rare to feel like you know someone just through reading their words. That’s how I felt about Keelan.

Two years is a long time but it didn’t feel like it. A few weeks ago, I found myself in Bali, staring out at sea on the morning of Ebony and Keelan’s wedding. Roark was playing with both sets of Grandparents and I couldn’t help but think how I wanted this day to be perfect for everyone. If I had to describe the day though, that’s the first word that comes to mind, ‘Perfect’.
