Ciao! Arrivederci! {Italy 2013}

Almost a year ago, I said farewell to one of my best friends and her family as they moved to Italy for the next three years. There was no doubt that I would go visit them someday. Well, friends, that someday is NEXT WEEK!!! EEK!!! Exactly one year to the day that they left! I can’t believe it’s finally here and I’m SO excited. Excited to see friends I’ve missed SO much over the last year. Excited to eat so much pasta, pizza and gelato til my belly hurts. Excited to take photos of anything and everything that comes across my path. Excited to enjoy two weeks of Italian bliss…

I will throw in a little work here and there and will be checking emails, but thank you in advance for your patience as I’m not sure how much internet connection I’ll have while traveling. To all of my mom-to-be clients & friends, I’ll be thinking of you and can’t wait to meet your little ones as soon as I get back!!

Here are a few family photos of the Burketts taken the day before they left for Italy…

If you’ve seen my Pinterest boards lately, I can’t stop filling up my travel board with a few of the cities I plan to visit while I’m there…I’M SO EXCITED! I JUST CAN’T HIDE IT! 🙂

Megan + Chris = Married! {Mesa, Arizona}

This is definitely a wedding I will never forget. I mean, how often do you get to shoot a wedding at an Air Force Museum complete with vintage planes from World War II?? But the backdrop was just a bonus for being able to hang out with Megan, Chris and their amazing friends and family. Relaxed and stress-free, this wedding went off without a hitch. Megan & Chris – though we hadn’t met until the day before your wedding, I had no doubt about your love for each other and the joy you bring to each others lives. Thank you for choosing me to document your wedding day!

Reception Venue – Arizona Wing Commemorative Air Force Museum; Ceremony – St. Stevens Parish, Sun Lakes, AZ; Makeup – Amazing Face; 2nd Photographer – Cristi Owen
