Ahh... Italia.

It's been too many years since I've been back to the land of my ancestry. This trip was wonderful, though too short. My wife & I spent a week in Northern Italy (Veneto, Trentino Alto-Adige & Lombardy regions) with stops in Venice, Murano, Verona, the Valpolicella wine region, Lago di Garda (Lake Garda) & Treviso. Amongst the places we stayed included lovely Airbnb lodgings in the most charming & picturesque little towns of San Pietro in Cariano & Pregasina. It was the Italy of our dreams. 

The photos just scratch the surface & honestly can't properly capture the old world beauty & allure of Italy. And there were many moments & vistas I had to just capture in my minds eye. 

I said this in my last post, but I'll say it again: if anyone wants me to document their wedding or elopement in Italy, please get in touch. 

Ti amo Italia.

Some frames from a week in Spain with my beautiful wife. The little one was back in the States, so we were able to enjoy our late nights of tapas & vino tinto.

Primarily Granada & Sevilla, a bit of Madrid, Mérida, Córdoba, and a quick overlook of Toledo.

If anyone would like to have me shoot their wedding in Spain, that would be just swell.

My Funny Valentine

I wouldn't be a wedding photographer if I wasn't a bit of a romantic.  Still, I never would've imagined that Valentine's Day would prove to be the most amazing and important day in my life... but, that's exactly what happened this year, as that's the day my beautiful daughter, Vivienne Barbara decided to join us.  I guess it was a fitting date, as my heart exploded with love for her, my wife, and the woman who inspired her middle name (my mother, who left us too soon a little over a year ago)... though as far as I'm concerned, V-Day heretofore stands for Vivienne Day.

Here are some photos from the day she was born and her first few weeks here in this crazy, beautiful world.
