Once upon a time I went to Borneo and did a photoshoot inside of a massive cave.
It didn’t smell great.
But it was really cool.
It was the perfect quirky location to photograph such a unique couple. Artur is a filmmaker from Poland, and Ruby is a photographer from Borneo. They’ve been married for about 5 years and they are so clearly best friends with one another it makes my heart full. I met Ruby while I was in Cambodia two years ago and I was beyond thrilled when we were all able to meet up in Borneo and spend a few days adventuring together in her hometown. She taught us how to eat like a local, how to speak a few words of Malaysian and she showed us where to find our very first hornbill, which I will forever be grateful for. Despite living a huge chunk of her life near these caves, she had never actually visited them until this day, so it was amazing to get to see it for the first time together. I spent the afternoon experiencing a mix of happiness, awe and fear (okay, I was hangry too – we didn’t pack enough to eat haha), but looking back on the day I am SO happy we got to explore such a cool place with such fun people!
