Love Story beneath the Aurora
Taken by Ronn Murray
Marketa Stanczykova and I met after a she looked me up from Iceland when she found this image http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=04&month=10&year=2011 on the cover of spaceweather.com 1 year and 21 days ago. We became friends on Facebook and after shooting aurora together in Alaska we fell in love. Despite many obstacles we were able to gather a small group of friends and head up to Poker Flat Research Range where the aurora is studied, to say I do in front of the world on the Aurora Cam.
The sky was dark and aurora activity was non existent until we pulled up to the observatory. As if by magic, the sky came alive and we were able to say our vows with a select group of incredible friends, the amazing aurora that brought us together, and the Aurora Cam as our witnesses. A day none of us will forget!
This is a self portrait of the Aurora and wedding photographers celebrating their own love under that magnificent lights.
