Do you ever feel like you are working on a million things at once, like you just entered a whole new level of multi-tasking? That's what it feels like to us right now. Please don't get me wrong, we are in no way complaining. In fact in some sort of crazy way we like the challenge, we like the uphill battle. It is like going for a good run, sure it is difficult at times but it is incredibly rewarding when you hit your goal.
Since getting home on Sunday evening we have been playing catchup on many things, one of those things being our blog. We're almost ready to share with you Sarah & Michael's Wedding Story which we photographed right before we left for Europe. Their day was really sweet, filled with so many great details and the Sarah & Michael could not have been happier. Needless to say we are very anxious to show you some of their photos!
We have also been going through the two Paris Shoots that we photographed. The first shoot took place in a variety of locations including a rooftop Paris apartment overlooking the city and at the Eiffel Tower. This first shoot was part of our "Taking Off Seminar". The 2nd shoot that we shot was completely inspired by the movie Amelie and something Kathleen & I have wanted to do for quite some time. (If you haven't seen this movie, it makes for a perfectly sweet Friday night date movie and plus it takes place in Paris!) We were lucky enough to photograph this shoot in an old French Restaurant complete with a broken tile floor and vintage French advertisements. We also went down into a Metro station and then up to Montmartre. Seriously we are aching to share both of these shoots with you!
In the meantime while we are working on everything else, many of our friends and family have been on us to also share some of our travel photos from our trip out to Italy which we went to after our Paris photo shoots. We have never been to Italy before but let me tell you this, based on the food and the scenery we are definitely ready to go back! While we were there, Kathleen and I (along with Kathleen's parents who joined us in both Paris and Italy - how great is that!!) visited 3 cities: Rome, Florence & Venice. Each city had its own unique feel while not letting you forget that you are in Italy. We took SO many photos and since we previewed a few Rome photos already, we were inspired to share with all of you some of what we captured in Venice first. This was a city that I have always wanted to see, something about a city built completely on water really intrigued me. Kathleen and I had an amazing time photographing the overabundance of colors and textures of this unique city, here are just some of both of our favorites. Hope you enjoy!
