She’s the bubbly to his calm. And a little bubbly is how it all started. Champagne sipping, tears falling during the bride and groom gift exchange, and perfect summer weather were just a few of the happy things on Linda and Brendan’s wedding day. From the first look outside of Hotel Max to dancing the night away as husband and wife at The Foundry, we had so much fun capturing one of the happiest days of their lives. A huge congrats to Linda and Brendan, we’re so thankful to have been invited to capture all the laughter and tears!

She got up excitedly, smile beaming and we knew that we wanted to photograph Morgan’s wedding from the second we met. Her warm, bubbly personality and gorgeous to top it off? The ideal bride. And then we met John, her fiance…the ideal couple. Two beautiful people who look like they stepped fresh off the cover of a bridal magazine. Morgan and John’s wedding was the perfect way to kick off wedding season and we had so much fun wandering under the willow trees to capture one of the biggest days of their lives. And to stay cool from the ninety degree weather. But mainly, they brought the heat. And made it look all too easy. Congratulations to Morgan and John, thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of such a special day!

After three days in Venice, we caught the water boat to the station for our first train ride to Tuscany! Riding through the countryside and neighboring cities, we arrived in Florence in a little over two hours. Starving as we picked up our rental car, we made a quick Whopper stop at none other than Burger King (of all places in Italy, I know…we keep it classy) and hit the open roads toward the wine country of Italy, Tuscany (Montepulciano to be exact). This was actually the only time we had a car since we planned to drive out to a place that didn’t have much transportation. It was such a relaxing town and the way we planned our cities wasn’t exactly intentional but we were really happy with the order of it. From the bustling city, to the refreshing water, then peaceful countryside. We spent the next few days taking it extremely easy, really just wandering the town a bit, eating pasta, and driving around the countryside. Surprisingly it was the coldest city of all (it almost felt like winter!) so we weren’t able to do the wind-blowing-in-your-hair-as-the-sun-sets-behind-the-hills vespa thing (insert visual of Harry and Lloyd on scooter per Dumb and Dumber here).

After another few days, we drove back into Florence to spend our remaining days in the beautiful city. Florence was a bit reminiscent of Paris with all the great shops, food vendors, and cobblestone alleys. We loved it! As it was the last stretch of our time away from the states, we were satisfying some more of our home food cravings even eating Chinese and Mexican food.

A look into Tuscany and Florence!

Arriving at our B&B, Locanda San Francesco, on the highest point
in town and this beautiful view. This was one of the best places we’ve stayed.
Super intimate with just four rooms, complimentary snacks and delicious breakfast,
and warm hospitality. And of course, that view.

This is a winery called Cantine d’Ricci, the oldest winery we’ve ever been to.
Actually, it’s one of the oldest wineries in the world. We followed
the stairs down into the underground cave and there was almost a slight
spookiness because of it’s age. It was pretty amazing being transported back, to see
that wine has been made even thousands of years back.

One of my favorite things about pregnancy has been seeing how excited Jin gets about our baby, even before he has arrived. I feel blessed to have someone to share in this very special journey that is not only excited about every little kick and hiccup but also going above and beyond in helping in getting ready for his arrival. From washing his clothes to joining me for every prenatal appointment to shopping for all things baby to name a few. His support and strength through this, I’ll be forever grateful.

To my surprise, these last nine months have flown by. From finding out we were expecting, to finding out the gender, going to consignment events for fun to score deals, to setting up the nursery, celebrating with loved ones at our baby shower, to countless doctor’s appointments…and along with the fun stuff, tying up any loose ends in finishing all needed tasks and errands before his arrival. It almost seems there is a never ending list of things to do. And now here we are, so close to meeting our little one for the first time. It honestly still feels surreal to me. Even though as I type, I can see him rolling around inside my stomach.

It’s pretty incredible, the journey of pregnancy. How we create this tiny little living being that grows inside of us for almost a year. To think we were all this little being at one point is mind blowing. I have developed a newfound appreciation for pregnant mamas for many different reasons. Although there has been many exciting moments, it definitely is one of the more physically and mentally harder things I’ve done in my life. And especially the women that work…and in the last trimester when things are the most challenging…whew! Including my own mom. I realized this when I had an opportunity that came my way that I couldn’t pass up. And I have to admit working over full time with a two hour commute each day hasn’t been easy to say the least. Fulfilling in a strange way yes because I love my job but naturally it has been physically harder than many things. But it’s always in these more challenging times that we see our strength and I wouldn’t change it the second time around. And to that, I have to say women are pretty amazing!

We are very excited (and a bit nervous) for baby to arrive any day now. In addition to hoping he will be healthy, we wonder the little things. What will he look like, how will his personality be, will we raise him the way we hope, will he be our last child…And of course looking forward to sharing with him the things we love to do together.

We finally had a chance to go out and take our maternity photos recently and the weather couldn’t have been better. Warm breeze with some amazing light. We casually roamed around one of our favorite parks and it was nice to take a break and get outside and enjoy each other as we anticipate our upcoming arrival. It was like our first date, with all three of us.

We touched down early morning in Venice from Paris and took the bus into the main town. We arrived at the dock luggage in hand, fresh from the busy city and breathed in the clean, crisp air. We were really in Venice and it was more than we imagined. The water was a tropical turquoise blue and it was so refreshing to be near the water in a completely different environment. After a week of being in the bustling city, we felt completely relaxed. We took the water taxi (there aren’t any cars in the main city of Venice) to our apartment which was perfectly situated near the Rialto Bridge and fish market. Bright, spacious, modern, and clean, we felt right at home. Venice was the perfect place to kick off our honeymoon. The beauty of the town, the endless gelato shops, surprisingly affordable and delicious food. And the first time we travelled everywhere by foot due to the lack of transportation. Even looking back on our photographs now, it still feels surreal. This city built on water in all it’s beauty. It almost feels fake but has so much history. A look into our stop in one of the most beautiful places we’ve seen… Venice!
