A marriage forged in flames (literally)

Written by on November 4, 2019

An arresting wedding portrait aims to draw attention to the devastating blaze currently scorching Northern California.

Photographer Karna Roa, owner of KMR Photography, captured couple Katie and Curtis Ferland as they donned face masks in the vineyard of Chateau St. Jean in Kenwood, California last week.

In the photo, the couple is backed by the haunting glow of the Kincade fire nearby that has been ablaze since last Wednesday.

Karna says, “I am a professional photographer and do not claim in any way to be an expert about climate change. I can attest to my personal experience that the weather appears to be more extreme.

The winds are stronger, the nights are cooler, and the days are warmer. It seems like this is an excellent time to turn to scientists who deeply understand these concepts and really listen to what they have to say.”

Karna also has a message for Aussie and Kiwi fireys,

I would like to say how incredible it was that last year 100 firefighters from Australia and New Zealand flew to California to assist in the “Carr” fire. I believe this was last August. This was such an amazing gesture of the world coming together to help in a time of great need. Thank you!
