It’s certainly no secret that Rob and I love to travel. This November marked 10 years since we first started dating and in that time we’ve been to over 25 different countries or states across three different continents. We seem to always be dreaming up our next adventure as travel is what fills our soul and makes us feel alive. Being a photographer, I naturally love to take dozens and dozens of pictures on these journeys. As I’ve become more familiar with shooting film since I started in 2014, I’ve transitioned to just bringing that camera with me on our trips. Film is incredibly expensive, from the product cost, shipping, and developing fees, and so it forces me to slow down and stay in the moment. Focus on the shot and not just take pictures to take pictures… but because it’s something I truly want to remember whether that’s because of the beauty, how it reminds me of the country, or how I feel at that moment. Photos that will take me back to that specific place and that specific time.
As we just started a new adventure with our sweet baby boy, Landon, we aren’t exactly sure where our next escape will be. We certainly don’t plan to ever stop traveling, but trips may become a bit more spaced out than they were in the past as we want to enjoy this season of our lives as well. But knowing that made it all the more fun to see some of my travel photography featured on one of my favorite international wedding blogs, Wedding Sparrow. They showcased images from our trips to Scotland, Paris, and the Cotswolds — all three of which were some of our most memorable excursions. When you have a moment, I’d love if you would take some time to hop over to WS to read those posts; they are so much more than pretty photos, there is lots of travel advice included! Read about how to navigate through Scotland, how to find places off the beaten path in Paris, or how to have a romantic getaway in the Cotswolds.
