It was New Years Eve, and I was being lame in my Rome hotel room when the clock struck midnight. In my defense I did have a 5 am flight to Florence the next morning. As I laid in bed my Facebook messages starting going off. When I opened the first one, it was from one of my friends, Ashley, telling me her long time friend had just gotten engaged at the Trevi fountain. At first I was like hmmm, where is she going with this.... Seconds later she asked if I would be around the next day to take engagement photos of them in Rome. What photographer wouldn't love to take engagement photos in Rome of all places. Unfortunately I had to tell Ashley that I was off to Florence the next morning. Thinking that was the end of the conversation I got ready for bed, minutes later she came back with, "what are the chances of this, but they too are going to Florence tomorrow!" This was fate! Needless to say, I met Meg(Ashley's friend) and her new fiance Ross, 2 days later in front of the Louis Vuitton store in Florence. The first thing that came out of Meg's mouth was telling me how sick she was and she could barely get out of bed. Being the trooper that she was Meg pushed through what seemed like an all day event as we made our way around Florence for their engagement photos( it was really only 2 hours). Ross who loves pictures (NOT REALLY AT ALL) would probably actually tell you it did take all day! The pictures were gorgeous, even sick Meg looked beautiful, and we couldn't of had more fun! The minute we got back to the states wedding planning began. Knowing she was going to need some help, I introduced her to an amazing wedding planner, none other than Ms. Holly Chavez, owner of HMC Event Solutions. The moment Meg met Holly she knew she was the perfect fit for her and insisted she book her right then and there! After months of planning, visits to countless venues and estates, Meg, her amazing Mom(Maureen) and Holly, chose Calimigo's Ranch Wedding in gorgeous Malibu, California. As you can see there were so many amazing details they all put together as Meg had envisioned. Family and friends traveled from all over the country for this fun, vintage inspired, chic wedding! Obviously as you look through these pictures its very clear these two are so in love, but even more importantly they know how to have fun together. Weddings like this make doing what I do so easy!!!!!!
