Erica and Hugh had a great destination wedding with so many of their friends and family in Key West. The wedding parties were lively and I really enjoyed their fun group. It is finally a little cooler outside and the weather in Key West has been perfect for these beach weddings. Erika had a beautiful hair style with little flowers and a stunning wedding dress intricately detailed, and the groom and groomsman had attractive suits with pink bow ties. The light right before the sunset at The Reach Resort is very romantic and we captured these perfect moments on the beach with our newlyweds. Congratulations to both of them!
This beautiful wedding in Key West was held a the historic, romantic, tropical garden setting of The Audubon House & Gardens. The ceremony was beautiful tucked away behind the old Key West home with wandering paved brick pathways among orchid-filled trees.
The fountain was their first look, the reception and then amazing sunset views atop the Westin Resort for a lively reception. We've Got The Keys done as always exceptional job planning Kyle's and Eva wedding.
Congratulations to you Eva and Kyle!
It was very intensive 2 months of traveling this Summer throughout Europe. I spent some wonderful time with my family in the Czech Republic and visited a few cities shooting my travels and some styled photo shoots along the way. Those that travel with me know, we are going to walk a lot, and stop a lot, because I love to shoot everything. I was fortunate to visit Prague, Rome, and Paris on this trip and the cities all left a mark on my soul.
I see beauty everywhere. I love to travel, and this always opens my mind to new ideas, styles, and energy that I like to bring back to my weddings. I spent a long weekend in Paris, and on her very last day and just hours before she left the city, Anna and I zoomed about the cities landmarks and ornate sculptures. We walked and along the Sein River capturing so many great images her the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Gardens. Anna is a diverse model, signed with Wilhelmina Paris, she's playful and young, with her own style and mood. She made this shoot so fun and the magic of Paris crept into every shot.
Rome makes me gush. Words and memories and love for a city that is not mine, but feels like all of ours. You can breath in the history in the air, down every small alley and in-between the old city streets. Rome is after all one of the oldest occupied cities in Europe, the central nation in ancient Roman culture. I had no idea how much I would fall in love with this city, her tiny cars, and welcoming city inhabitants. We visited the Vatican City, an independent country within the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city.
I highly recommend to bring good shoes, try a gelato, visit one of the sights at night because everything is usually open till 1:00 or 2:00 am. We were also very lucky to shoot in such a beautiful setting as The Villa Borghese Secret Gardens. It was a part which is usually closed to the public, so it made our shoot even more special. The w0nderful and edgy fashion designer Giorgia Donia had the most amazing cloths to work with and our model, Valentina Feula, brought out these intense emotions into our photos.
This city made for lovers, during fashion week, enthralled my imagination. In my short visit, I met the fashion photographer Emily Soto. We talked photography, shot in the studio and garden, and met amazing fashion stylists and talented make-up and hair stylists. I love these workshops for the shared passion and conversations with other photographic artists.
I hope you are enjoying these traveling photo shoots as much as I love creating them, together we can drift away and let the dream take you wherever you want to go.
A couple more photos that remind me of such a beautiful time in Paris.
