I cannot even begin to express what an honor it was to photograph Jennifer and Leon’s wedding in Portofino, Italy!! Not only was this my first time photographing a wedding overseas… it was my first time ever being overseas!! I am so thankful to these sweet friends for giving me this opportunity! It was such a wild experience… one that I will remember for a lifetime.

Jennifer and Leon are such a gorgeous couple… so sweet and so full of love! Their intimate ceremony in the gardens at Hotel Splendido was an overwhelming experience. I felt so blessed to be included in such a monumental moment! Jennifer and Leon’s lives have taken them in so many different directions. Their stories are long and full of one adventure after another and even though their history really begins many years before, their story together truly begins when their paths finally brought them together, for good, in Ireland. 🙂

This post is special to me because, without friends and family in attendance (with the exception of Jennifer’s parents), this is the first anyone is seeing of the wedding! I am overwhelmed to be able to share with you this spectacular day!!

The beautiful Italian Riviera as the backdrop to their special day was perfect in every way!!
