The Very Best of 2018
 
 

So by now you’ve probably gathered that I am quite bad at blogging. When it comes to my business it’s pretty much at the bottom of my to-do list and that needs to change! I did say I was going to do a “Best of 2018” post, and I know we’re already five months into this year, but I figured better late than never so here we go!

2018, where do I even start with you?! This past year was such a whirlwind of events including some of the best of my life. I got to marry my best-est friend (who doesn’t have 4 legs) in the South of France, we bought a house together, I saw two of my favourite artists ever (The Foo Fighters and Drake), spent a week under the sun in the Dominican, and got to hang out with sooo many awesome couples on their wedding day! 2018 also included a lot of sweet families that invited me into their lives to capture some beautiful moments.

Every year I compile a list of things I want to do for my business and in my personal life, so I figured it might be fun to add to this post so you can follow along too!

get married
buy a house
travel
have my work featured
book some awesome weddings

go to five concerts, which is my usual each year but didn't happen because of the above items lol
swim in new places

Our wedding in the South of France
 
 

So as you may know, especially if you follow me on Instagram, my boyfriend (now husband) and I got married in May!  We had a small destination wedding in the South of France with 12 of our closest friends and family.  Since we are both wedding photographers we knew we wanted to do something a bit different and not have to deal with the drama that comes along with having a 100+ guest list.  Don't worry though if you are having a big wedding!  We still had drama lol.  

We found our "venue" on Airbnb which also doubled as everyone's accommodations for the week.  It was a stunning 14th century chateau in the small town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton located around nine hours south of Paris.  This place was wildly beautiful and I still can't believe we got married there!  Everyday started off with an adventure to the nearest bakery to get fresh croissants (HOLY CRAP WERE THEY EVER DELICIOUS!) and some other staples for the day.  We relaxed pool-side or would go on mini road trips to the near towns and be tourists for the day.  Half of our group had never been to Europe before and the other half had never been to France so we were excited to explore the stunning countryside.  I would definitely recommend it can't wait to go back one day with Joey!

Our wedding day was really low-key and relaxed.  We started out the day the same as the others, with croissants and coffee out on the patio.  We got ready in the afternoon, did our first look and then some photos and had a late ceremony with cocktails and dinner afterwards.  The night ended with a lot of Drake, ska music, some crazy dance moves, and jumping into the pool!

Some of these photos are from the sweet little town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton, including our chateau, Arles, Nimes, and other little towns that we stopped in because of their beauty.  Enjoy :)
