Model Victoria Yore, 23, and her photographer boyfriend Terrence Drysdale, 27, travel all over the world to take stunning photos in dramatic, often desolate, settings — from US national parks to waterfalls in Iceland.
The Florida-based couple began their project “Follow Me Away” in August 2015, after taking their first trip together.
“Seeing all of our photos in one place, we decided that we wanted a way to chronicle how different our photos looked simply by varying the landscape,” Yore told Business Insider over email.
In each photo of the series, Yore appears in a floaty dress amid a scenic backdrop. Often the photos look like they’re out of fairytales or films, but they are all authentic.
“Contrary to popular belief, the photos aren’t staged at all. The most staging that goes into an image is choosing a dress,” Yore said. “Hair and makeup are completely natural, feet are bare, and posing isn’t contrived or planned. Everything happens very organically.”
Aside from a little Google research, their approach to choosing a location is also casual. “Our best locations are stumbled upon by accident,” Yore said.
So far, the duo have taken photos in nine countries and shot in five US states. They’re currently in the Austrian Alps, with plans to go to the Italian and French Alps next with Normandy, Scotland, Canada, and Alaska also on the agenda. “Considering that we are only nine months old, we are pretty happy with what we have been able to achieve in such a short period of time,” Yore said.
