Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the holiday season, and are looking forward to 2013! Personally, 2012 was very up and down for me – I lost both of my Grandpas, had wrist surgery, among other things. BUT, there were some amazing things as well. One was getting hired to shoot a destination wedding in Italy on the Amalfi coast! Spencer and I had such a great time (to say the least!), and it was an honor to be part of Anna & John‘s intimate, beautiful wedding. They are both amazing people, and I’m lucky to have since become good friends with them.
Their wedding was featured on Ruffled! http://ruffledblog.com/amalfi-coast-destination-wedding/
I will eventually post some personal photos from the trip, but I’ll start with the wedding!
Their wedding invitations made from their engagement session photos…
Taking a break to dance with the bride!
Anna met me through Veronica, when I shot her Silcox Hut wedding in 2011!
Tears all around
The schedule was a little rushed after the ceremony, but I loved how relaxed and in the moment they were…
In the Ravello town square
Someone asked Spencer if she was a real bride or a model – I wonder why!? :)
