When I was 13, I went to Paris a wide-eyed, if not very moody, young teenager. The outfits I wore on my first trip to Paris were atrocious. I remember romanticizing the city of Love in my mind and being really disappointed as we wondered through the dirty streets. I was also fighting with my parents every day in my angsty way... on this trip I learned to take things as they are and appreciate what’s in front of you. ⠀ ⠀ I returned when I was 19 as a college student. I had just finished my freshman year and I was determined to have a better experience. We stayed in a hostel and ate bread and cheese for most of our meals but it was fun and that was all part of the experience. I went to the d’Orsay museum for the first time. We missed our overnight train to Munich and had to spend the night on some friends’ hotel balcony. 🤦🏻♀️😂 on this trip I learned to go with what life gives you and be a leader in the midst of chaos.⠀ ⠀ Last year in October. I was 24 and excited to return to Paris and rekindle my relationship with this city. I traveled alone, which was new to me, and I arrived nervous but mostly excited for the journey ahead. @darcybenincosa bought us snails 🤤, we photographed incredibly styled shoots in the most iconic spots in all of Paris, we learned from one of the best in the business and I made new friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. On this trip I learned so much about my business, but even more about myself.⠀ ⠀ It’s interesting to me what time can do. Paris did not change much, but every time I came back, she was different for me. My experiences were different, yes, but just the way I felt about the city were different as well. My third trip was when I truly fell in love. And I hope to return to this city in the future... I wonder what she will teach me next. @thepathworkshops styling @stay__co model @sinarabarbosa hmu @ckennedybeauty outfits @paolocoronaofficial florals @floraisonparis paper suite @carta_plena
He’s the Selfie King 🤴🏻 He’s a goofy engineer with a giant sweet tooth and a love for travel. He’s an aspiring pro yo-yoer, a bonsai tree collector, and a huge Impractical Joker fan.⠀ 🌳⠀ I am a photographer because of my dad. He gave me my first camera, he taught me how to use it and he still lets me borrow his lenses and gear. I’m so thankful he gave me his love for photography.⠀ 📷⠀ My dad and I are alike in a lot of ways. We quote movies often and eat candy frequently. We love to travel the world and gab about photography. But the best thing my dad taught me is to stand up for what’s fair and right, to love others no matter where they come from, and to always be adventurous.⠀ ✈️⠀ I love you dad, Happy Father’s Day!
Happy First Anniversary to Julie and Drew (yesterday) 🖤 I loved photographing their day and still consider them good friends. Thank you Julie and Drew for trusting me with your memories.

There is something so compelling and interesting about a more natural and almost wild bouquet arrangement. 🌿 They are some of my favorite to shoot and I have never met a bride that has regretted her decision to have a more wild and free bouquet! There are lots of florists out there that will come alongside you to create your dream bouquet. Find someone who you can trust and invest in someone who does things a little differently. I love this all white and green arrangement by @jannabrowndesignco! Give her page a like and a browse—her work is stunning! photography: @hayleywaldophoto masterclass: @katiegrantphoto for @thehybridco styling + florals: @jannabrowndesign paper goods + assist: @lazywoodlane gown: @christoscostarellos from @thedresstheory makeup + hair: @jaxstudio silk ribbon: @silkandwillow model: @lysha_b
It’s hard for me to describe in words what I feel when I’m in this city. It’s no secret that I love Vienna, and I know it’s hard to see why if you haven’t been there. I think the freedom I feel when I travel is part of it. There’s freedom in leaving your phone behind and wandering with a camera and an empty stomach, just stumbling across markets and festivals at just the right moment. There’s freedom in feeling like you can just explore and have no agenda. To wander the streets, to journal in a cafe that some of the greatest thinkers of all time sat and pondered in, to walk the streets where Mozart lived, to experience music and laughter and smells and food that you can only find here... Vienna is the city I dream of and it was an absolute dream to wander these streets finally with my love by my side. I hope he felt the same freedom that I do, freedom to just...be. I’m hoping that I brought some of that feeling back home with me in the form of self awareness and a newfound sense of peace and healing. I’m excited for the future and I hope our future includes many more trips to the city of my dreams. 🖤 What city do you dream of? Where are your travels taking you next? What do you love about traveling? 🗺
Oh, Vienna. 🖤 when I come back here, it feels like coming home. It feels familiar, it feels comfortable, it feels natural and just right. It feels magical. ⠀ 🥰⠀ I wish that I could see this place for the first time, with fresh eyes as Tanner does. I do get so excited though when we turn the corner and see something like Stephansdom or the Hoffburg and his face immediately lights up. This place is simply magical and I hope it’s living up to everything I’ve told him in the past. ⠀ 😍⠀ Vienna, my city of dreams 🎶 I’m praying so hard that it doesn’t rain during our shoot this Tuesday. It’s forecast to thunderstorm and if you are a prayer person, pray it doesn’t rain!! We are desperate to make this work in Stadtpark. I’m so thankful for this place and for the memories i hold dear to me and for the memories I’m making right now. Vienna, please don’t let me down! For now, there is a sunny day ahead, so we are going to Schönbrunn tomorrow (pictured)!
