Carmen & Yoon // Rosewood Sand Hill

Carmen and Yoon are two of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. Everything about their wedding was just simple and easy. Which I loved so much. And as an added bonus, the wedding food at their reception. WOW! Could not get over the food… I think I was still thinking about it for days to come.

Italy Trip // Florence & Pisa

Whenever I travel around the United States, it’s always fun and I enjoy myself. But it’s never really anything beyond a vacation. But when I visited Paris earlier this year and then even moreso after I visited Florence and Lucca, I felt like… Yes. I could live here. I can completely and fully visualize myself walking down these streets everyday, building a life in these beautiful historic towns.

Florence especially was a marvel. A bizarre and wonderful mix of old and new. It’s in a place like Florence where artisans still exist, the food is extraordinary and the people are so friendly. Just looking out your hotel window it felt like you could feel the pulse of the city. Can you imagine being able to look out on a city this beautiful every single day?

The art, the culture, the beauty at every turn. I loved Florence.

There’s only one shot of Pisa in this set of photos but it’s one of my favorite photos from the whole trip. It’s such a touristy thing but we decided to check out the leaning tower and I was amazed to find that it’s seriously delightful to see in person. It just makes you giddy to do the whole, “holding up the tower with your hand” bit.

One more post to come…

Italy Trip // Tuscan Countryside & Lucca

Now that wedding season is over and the year is winding down, I spent the past few days going over all the photos that I took on my honeymoon in Italy.

After having visited Italy, I can safely say that it is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I loved every minute of my time there.

We stayed at an adorable little bed and breakfast in the Tuscan countryside for part of our journey. I woke up a little before sunrise our 2nd day there and just soaked in the amazing beauty around me as the sun came up. Vineyards and olive trees and the most gorgeous estates. We even did a cooking class during our stay and made the most delicious food. If you ever have a chance to do a cooking class while in Italy, I highly recommend it!

Then came Lucca. Lovely lovely Lucca. Lucca was hands down my favorite part of Italy. This town is so full of charm and beauty and serenity. We rode bikes around and around and around the entire city. Doing full loops around the perimeter of this walled beauty at least 3 times. We biked to gelato shops and then biked to dinner and then biked around the whole city once more. I LOVE Lucca.

This is just the first of three posts I’m going to be making about my trip so enjoy these photos and stay tuned for more!
