Best Places to See in Paris - A Destination Wedding Photographer from California's Perspective

We are so excited to share with you our trip to Paris! Every-time I look at these photos, I am immediately filled with so much nostalgia from our trip. We had the most amazing time together that was filled with adventure and lots of rest. We booked this trip about six months out knowing it would be the end of our wedding season in California. As much as I am a planner, we didn’t really plan much until we landed in Paris. We had an idea of what we wanted to do but the first night we were there, we planned out our week. We hit a lot of touristy spots first like the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Palace of Versailles. Afterwards, we felt a little touristed out, so we decided to wander in some of our favorite neighborhoods and discover some hidden non-touristy gems. Our routine consisted of waking up, finding a new coffee shop, wandering through the neighborhoods for photo adventures and discovering delicious food along the way.

Mendocino Area Vacation Suggestions - Destination Photographer

A few weeks ago Stephen and I were in Mendocino for a beautiful wedding on the coast at the Heritage House Resort. The wedding took place overlooking the cliffs and had the most spectacular views. Like most of our personal work, we only brought our medium format film camera. This time in particular, we chose only to shoot on our new Hasselblad so I could get used to using it faster for our newborn sessions. This camera is super fun as it’s all manual, has no batteries or anything. It shoots in a unique 6x6 square format which is fun and creatively challenging.

Destination Videographer for Weddings - Kennebunkport, Maine & Maple Rock Farms - Phil&Emily

Every year we get the privilege of traveling to new destinations for weddings. This East Coast wedding was extra special however, because the groom Phil is a childhood friend of mine!

Before my family moved out to California, we lived in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois called Wheaton. It was in Wheaton that we met the Whiteman family and Phil and I connected right away. After many years of fun memories, I moved out of state and didn't think I'd see these friends much again…
