Aiste & Livijus

Aiste & Livijus met playing badminton. Since then they have won many games, their medals artfully hanging on the radiator of their brand new home.

I loved Aiste’s white dress and black pumps, which she abandoned in favour of her comfy white sport shoes so she could run and play and dance.

Here are some details of their day spent surrounded by friends and family - there was even a spot of badminton. Had I not been shooting, I would’ve definitely tried my luck. In badminton. And maybe in love.

Gerda & Rokas

Gerda and Rokas were married on a beautiful September day surrounded by family and friends and many cups of coffee. I lost count of how many i had that day!

Despite all the coffee, it was such a peaceful day - they had moments to themselves, their music, conversations, a walk through the park, even a dance in the middle of the stadium. There was a man walking the wire, high up above our heads, but i’m not sure they saw that.

We visited the places they loved, they danced and she played the piano. God, how beautiful it is to watch a woman in love who knows she is loved back. The day that started with coffee, coming full circle ended up with a party at their favourite coffee place.

They truly did it their way.


if I hold you in my heart,
you’ll wither;
become a thorn if I hold you in my eyes…
no, I’ll make a place for you within my soul instead,
so you’ll be my love in lives beyond this life.

chaos and poetry

“I am in the middle of it: chaos and poetry; poetry and love and again, complete chaos. Pain, disorder, occasional clarity; and at the bottom of it all: only love; poetry. Sheer enchantment, fear, humiliation. It all comes with love.”

Anna Akhmatova


It’s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.


So throw away your baggage and go forward.
There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair.
That’s why you must walk so lightly.
Lightly my darling,
on tiptoes and no luggage,
not even a sponge bag,
completely unencumbered. 

 A. Huxley

i admit

I admit,
I was afraid
to love.
Not just love,
but to love her.
For she was a stunning
She carried things
deep inside her
that no one
has yet to understand,
and I,
I was afraid to fail,
like the others.
She was the ocean
and I was just a boy
who loved the waves
but was completely
terrified to

as long as you’re dancing,
you can break the rules.
sometimes breaking the rules
is just extending the rules.
sometimes there are no rules.

the most wonderful of all things in life

the most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. this inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. it is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life. (Hugh Walpole)
