Personal | Paris, Prague, and Budapest

I recently spent two weeks with my bestie in Europe. Here are a few of my favorites from our trip.

Paris, Prague, Budapest, then Paris again. May/June 2017.

Karen & David | Coral Gables Wedding

During my first meeting with Karen & David, I felt an instant connection. Both Karen and David are in the Air Force, and you all know my obsession with planes, pilots, and flying in general. I'll spare you the cheesy "in the air" quotes, but this wedding will definitely be one of the highlights of 2017's wedding "season". 

I mean seriously, check out the guys' 'sleeves' shirts - you KNOW it's gonna be a good wedding when the bridal party has a little fun with their uniforms. Karen and David chose to have a first look at Vizcaya, and made sure we had 90 delicious minutes for portraits. I'm so spoiled. 

Here are some of my favorites from their Coral Gables wedding, an event planned by Paula with B Social Events: 

Wedding Planner | B Social Events

Bridal Prep | Private Villa 

Reception | Club of Knights, Coral Gables

Bridal Gown | Alfred Angelo

DJ | Miami DJs Ultra

Photo Booth | Juju Booth

 

Day in the Life | Gigi, Danny, & Kane

Five-ish years ago, I was the light holding, dress fluffing assistant at Gigi's wedding. Since then, we've our Facebook friendship grew into a working relationship, (and amazing friendship, but lets not get sappy. I do love this girl though.) as Gigi is a fantastic wedding photographer and second shooter/associate for Sonju Photography. So I jumped at the chance to shoot a Day in the Life session for her family. Kane just turned two, and I was SO EXCITED to finally meet the little man I've been following on Instagram (#teambabysquishy y'all) 

Driving to Gigi's home, I must've powered through three separate rain storms. I actually thought about pulling over and waiting it out (which is major, because this is Florida, we should be used to the rain) or even cancelling the session because it was so nasty out. But the beauty of in-home documentary sessions is that you don't have to worry about the weather, and rescheduling would have gone against everything these sessions are meant to be - about documenting the every day life AT HOME. Rain or Shine. 

I knocked on the door and Kane greeted me with a stare. I don't speak much Spanish, unless I'm IN Spain, so the only way Kane and I could really communicate was through body language and well, staring. And he stared me down for a solid 15 minutes. Side eye. More staring. Looking to mom and dad for reassurance... It was the ultimate challenge - photograph Kane and his relationship with Gigi and Danny, and do so without really talking to him and while stuck indoors. 

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
