Published in Italian wedding blog Partecipando

The photos from the engagement session we did with Allison and Conrad at the beach in Santa Cruz were just published in a blog in Italy “Partecipando“.  The couple were having a romantic picnic on the beach and had brought wine an flowers to mark the occasion.  The colors in the photos made the collection look very elegant.  As wedding photographers in Santa Cruz we are thrilled when the photos are published internationally.

Basel Switzerland, Setting off on a Viking Cruise

We spent the night in a hotel in a building that was several hundred years old, next to a cathedral.  In the morning the towns people were gathering for Sunday services.  We wandered the empty streets in the early morning, exploring the town and taking pictures. [September 29, 2013]
