Venice | The city of romance

During the fabulous Italian Tour, Venice was the last stop. It was so very different from Rome and Florence; much smaller, quieter, and more ‘lived in’. We stayed slightly outside of the city and took public transportation into the city of canals. Walking through the city was like traveling back in time; there were accordian […]

Florence, Italy | Destination Wedding Photographer

Florence was unbelievable. The architecture was even more beautiful than Rome, if that’s even possible.

There was so much history and beauty around every corner, I honestly felt a bit overwhelmed at how much there was to see and the thought of how many generations of people had walked these very streets in different eras. My favorite part of the whole trip was seeing Vatican City in Rome. The Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica absolutely blew my mind. While I’m thrilled to have these photos, they don’t even do the city justice. There came a point in every location where I had to just put my camera down and take it all in.

Disney Withdraw | Personal

You may or may not be aware of this slight obsession I have… well, if you’ve ever spent any amount of time with me you probably already know, but I am obsessed with Walt Disney World. I mean, head over heels, think about it all the time, probably should just move there, obsessed. In fact, I used to work at Disney World and while I didn’t appreciate it nearly as much I should have at the time, the knowledge of all the behind scenes stuff just fuels my Disney fire, especially when I haven’t been in awhile. It’s been almost exactly…
