Last week I traveled to Lake Como Italy to shoot a beautiful wedding. I had been to Italy before when I was younger but I had not seen Europe through my new eyes. The eyes that belong to a photographer and a wife and a woman. I saw and felt things on this trip that I couldn’t see and feel when I was younger. I saw so much beauty in the simple life, felt the calmness of the village, and experienced the easy going nature of Italy. This trip came at an amazing time for me. Business has been amazing, I have been traveling so much and its been crazy!! But is crazy busy a good thing? I had some time to self reflect and really ask myself that question. I think being crazy busy is overrated. I personally want to have more days like this in my life. Taking pictures of strangers because they inspire me, walking through a village and not looking at my watch once to see what time it was, and daydreaming about what it would be like to live there. I hope this European feeling doesn’t were off. I want to keep this prospective. Slow down a little bit.
Thank you so much to my new friend and fellow photographer Katie Julia for taking this cool shots for me. It was really fun to be in Italy with another photographer and such a positive miracle minded woman. Until next time Ciao!
