European Romance Editorial Story


Love, adventure and the most gorgeous light. I cannot believe that today is finally here!! The day that I get to share this beautiful story with you! I am absolutely overjoyed!! Early this year, Alex and I started dreaming up this story and it is one of my favorite editorials to date. To top it all off, it was featured over on Smitten Blog the other day!!

We were inspired by a couple that loves adventure and exploring new places. Their wedding day is intimate, inspired by the unique and natural world around them. They thrive and grow best in environments that allow them to see the beauty and simplicity of the world while surrounded by loved ones.

By focusing on the love and adventure in growing together, their love flourishes. With each new experience, they learn more about themselves and each other. Their love and lives become more intertwined with every new chapter.  Life happens and blossoms in the simple, everyday moments. This shoot is an ode to the down to earth, quiet and romantic pleasures that we so often take for granted.

With homemade food, foraged blooms and natural textures, this joyous occasion is only a backdrop to the amazing love these two have fostered together and amongst their family.
