Positano Vow Renewal

 

I’ve been holding on to this intimate vow renewal in Positano, Italy for way too long! I know so many of you have been wanting to see this and I’m sorry for making your wait so long! I think part of me was waiting to post because I didn’t want this trip to be over. I loved my time in Italy with Andrew and Rebecca and I’ve been wanting to go back ever since. Italy is magical, the food, the people the amazing landscapes so vast and different wherever you go and oh the WINE! I absolutely loved exploring this beautiful place and I loved capturing Andrew and Rebecca’s steadfast love for each other.

Andrew and Rebecca are parents to two beautiful little girls and they have been living as a family in Italy while Andrew is stationed there and Rebecca explores as much of Italy as she can in her free time with her girls. It definitely is one of the many things that inspired me to travel with my own daughter and oh my heart is that rewarding. So thank you for that Becky! <3 It really made such an impact on my life!

I always love watching couples and their unique way of loving each other and my time with Andrew and Rebecca was no exception. A love that started a family, an adventure together and that is standing the test of time. It always warms my heart to see this because I truly believe love is worth it and needs to be celebrated in this world. I’m so glad I had the chance to capture this intimate vow renewal in the enchanting city of Positano.

This dress has kinda become a trend ever since Rebecca wore it so well and it’s really cool to see that since I love unique dresses. This dress is from the very talented designer Chotronette and the absolutely stunning vow books were designed by my good friend at Flourish Grace Calligraphy. I will link both of their sights for all you brides out there to check out their awesome work!

I hope you enjoy scrolling through this lovely session and if you’re looking to elope or get married in Italy, PLEASE reach out to me because my heart is longing to go back to this gorgeous country!

Travel Log ~ London

 

I’ve travel to quick a few cities around the world and I haven’t loved any as much as I have loved London. I’m much more of a country girl so I’m never that big a fan of cities as I feel they are too crowded, not enough greenery and usually too loud for my liking. But London, I don’t know if it’s because it was the first time I was able to take Tim and Hazel with me to Europe or just London’s charm… but I loved it. I loved the food, the sights, the charm, the musicians on the street, the people but most of all I loved watching Tim fall in love with this city. Tim has always loved the idea of being in a community where he could walk to everything and yet there was tons to explore, so London was perfect for him.

Hazel loved soaking in everything as well, she was such a traveling champ! She never really had a meltdown even though she never really got a nap on this trip. She fell asleep in her stroller or backpack carrier when she wanted to but we never took a break and went home for a nap. There was way too much to see and to EAT. I love eating in Europe so much. I have a painful gut due to years of having Celiac Disease and not knowing it so it hurts all the time in America. But in Europe my gut never hurts! Why, because they don’t put junk in their food. So I ate all of the food I could and loved every single second of it.

We traveled to London with my dear cousin, her kids and her mom and oh it was just such a refreshing and fun time. We went to the London Zoo, Buckingham Palace, and Tim and I searched out all the Harry Potter things we could including King’s Cross station and many other locations that the movies were filmed. We ate out just about every night, laughed, giggled and just had the absolutely best holiday. We met up with my cousin’s cousin who lives there and he showed us around and he and Tim became quite good friends. 🙂

All in all we definitely fell in love with this city and can’t wait to go back as a family since London was so kid friendly. We love the friends we made and can’t get the charm of London out of our hearts. If you are debating on whether or not to add this city to your travel list, DO IT! You can thank me later. 🙂 Walk around and find the hidden chems, listen to the street music, eat all the food and then take a train to the countryside and further enjoy the charm of this country. See you later London, we miss you!

A Lovely Wedding At The Beaumont Inn ~ Adam and Danielle

 

Adam and Danielle’s lovely Beaumont wedding was so full of absolutely precious memories to capture and tear jerking moments that I cried the whole time I was editing their wedding gallery. From the sweet reaction from dad during his first look at his little girl as a bride all the way to the reception as Danielle’s brother cheered on his sister as she gave her maid of honor speech. I don’t know if I stopped crying happy tears all day.

Danielle is an exceptionally beautiful woman on the outside but that has nothing on how beautiful her spirit is. She is so kindhearted, generous and open with everyone. She has a heart that just wants to love and give to others and I was so inspired and blown away by that. And of course Adam rightfully so is head over heals for her. His gentle and patient nature suits Danielle so well. Danielle is wonderful at many things but does tend to be forgetful and a little clumsy. I found out as we were hiking up a mountain for their engagement session but Adam always responds with so much patience and grace. I have a hard time even imagining Adam being cross with someone. They are both just such incredibly sweet people.

It didn’t surprise me at all that their friends and loved ones also had wonderful characters and were all lovely people. I was absolutely floored with how blessed I was to be invited to document this lovely wedding. Out of all the crazy adventures I get to be a part of the best are the ones full with love and commitment like Adam and Danielle’s wedding day was.

Adam and Danielle, thank you so much for trusting me with documenting your absolutely perfect wedding day and I hope you and your family enjoy these images for years to come. <3

Travel Log ~ Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Travel Log ~ Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

 

As we come to the end of summer I wanted to share with you a travel log from one of my favorite trips this summer, Mexico. This trip was the refreshing experience I needed this summer. A chance to see my traveling girl friends, drink Piña coladas on the beach, eat tacos and see the beauty of Mexico. I didn’t get to photograph as much of Mexico as I wanted and my trip definitely wasn’t as long as I would have liked but it left me entranced by this beautiful country and longing to go back. I went cliff jumping (which was definitely one of my favorite new experiences), got a tan, ate lots of food and had quality time with friends I don’t get to see very often.

Playa Del Carmen Mexico is a colorful, exotic and friendly place with lots of great places to explore near by like Xel-Ha, Chichen Itza, Tulum Ruins,Valladolid and so many amazing cenotes. The crystal clear blue water is enchanting, the people are just so hospitable and oh my heart the food! Yum! I was able to photograph some of my beautiful friends while they enjoyed Mexico and that’s always my favorite thing. I love capturing people enjoying a new place and each other, there is something so special about that to me. This world is a big and beautiful place that should be explored. It helps bring light to a dark world when we love each other and enjoy the beauty this world has to offer.

I could go on and on about how great this trip is but I’m almost to emotional to type it all out but I’ll just say its a time I’ll always cherish with my friends and anxiously await the next time we take on a new country. I’m blessed to have these awesome girls to explore this planet with and share in daily struggles and joys.

Below is some of the beauty of Playa Del Carmen’s streets and beaches and I promise you it’s only a little glimpse of the beauty of this country. There are many things and places I would like to go back and explore and hopefully one day I’ll get to. I hope you enjoy scrolling through and it inspires you to go explore Mexico for yourself. 🙂

P.S. I know I’m very behind on my travel logs and I intend to share more about my adventures and travels from this year soon, including Italy, London, Scotland, Ireland, Austria and Greece. So stayed tuned!
