What can I say about this beautiful wedding by the sea…all I know is that I shot it in such a stunning place with such lovely people, and it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. And now I’m proud to say that Bridal Musings has included this shoot in their collection of published weddings and made the shoot that much more special! Check out the full feature here!

This ethereal castle wedding was part of Boheme Workshops in southern Greece and was created with the Greek goddess Mnemosyne in mind — the goddess of memory and remembrance.

We shot at the hauntingly beautiful Methoni Castle, and inspired by the long history of the venue, the workshop creators and I aimed for the photos to invoke memories, as if we were catching a glimpse of the stories that once took place between those ancient castle walls.

Our bride’s makeup was kept soft and romantic, while her nearly sheer gown made her seem almost ghostlike as the delicate train blew in the wind.

One of my favorite details: the three-tier cake had breathy watercolor strokes painted on – a design element that was echoed in the gentle but sweeping calligraphy of the invitations.

Isn’t it all just to die for?? ♡

For this real couple’s shoot at the recent Boheme Workshop in Messinia, Greece we had two words in mind: Intimacy and simplicity. I wanted to show that engagement photography can be romantic and sexy without being too over the top. And today I’m so honored to have this shoot featured over at the international wedding blog, Hochzeitsguide!

Check out the full post here.

Inspired by both Goddess Gaia, the Greek goddess of the earth and devotion, and Goddess Eros, the goddess of love, we chose to cut out the frills and focus solely on the authentic connection that Alex and Catherine — a global couple with roots in Romania and Greece — have for each other.

Alex and Catherine have so much natural, subtle chemistry. You could see it in the way they moved together: he would move his hips into hers as they embraced, she would reach for his hand as they walked, or (when they thought I wasn’t looking) they’d snuggle close and whisper, smiling to each other as they did. It was such a joy to photograph them.

I hope this shoot inspires other madly-in-love couples to trust that their love alone often makes the best photographs.

Last September, I had the incredible opportunity to put together a styled shoot with a team of vendors in Tuscany, Italy and today that shoot is being featured over at Hey Wedding Lady! Check out the full post here.

Using Tuscany’s famous green olive groves as our inspiration, Pisa wedding planner Luisa Colombini of La Bottega del Sogno and I chose I Felloni as our venue, a historic stone home out in the countryside that boasts not only olive groves but also a lovely vineyard and jaw dropping views over the Monte Pisano valley. We kept the styling soft, elegant, and feminine.

I loved our beautiful bride’s Italian-made dress: a delicate ivory wedding gown with hints of lace created by local designer Larimeloom. Our bride also stayed barefoot to fit the natural theme and honestly…aren’t barefoot brides just the best? ;)

The florist, Anna Porciatti of LaBotanique, is an absolute artist with fresh flowers — she put together the incredible flower crown featured here in about 10 minutes flat. So so gorgeous.

It was so fun to plan and carry out such a beautiful, romantic shoot in the Italian countryside, and I hope it inspires all you brides out there planning a destination wedding in Italy!
