When I got a message from Nathan that he wanted to surprise his fiancé, Monica, with an engagement shoot in Paris, I could not have been happier! I had just been to Paris for the first time a month before and was eager to find my way back to this gorgeous, well documented place. The tropes of Paris being romantic are true. Yes, it’s filled with tourists and lots of people. But when every corner you turn is a postcard, it’s hard not to be inspired by this wonderful city. We were fortunate to find ourselves in a beautiful, crisp, November evening, about an hour or so before sunset. We made some images at the Jardins Royal Palais, the Musee du Louvre, and wrapped things up at the iconic Eiffel Tower. I even had a chance to grab a drink with these guys before I hopped back on my bullet train to The Hague. 3 hours later and I’m back in a different country. What time to be alive 😉

Thanks to this wonderful couple for having me along to share in their epic experience of France. Much love to you both! Cheers!

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but, I’ve moved to The Netherlands with my wife and goofy pooch. Since relocating here, I have made a conscious effort to document this truly special time in my life. That’s why I decided to launch a blog called Reislust. I chose the word reislust because it’s Dutch for “the love of travel.” I came to the realization that I will most likely never have another experience like this so I decided I want to share it with you guys!

Additionally, sometimes you need to switch it up a bit. I thought I might do that when I had plans to visit Paris. What can you say about this city that hasn’t already been said? It’s home to one of the most recognizable symbols in the world, the Eiffel Tower. It lays claim to some of the best, if not, the best food on planet earth. I could go on. But instead of continuing ad nauseam,  I’ve decided to share my experience of the most visited city in the world (42 million visitors per year) through video rather than with photos. So grab a chocolate croissant and an espresso and sit back and enjoy. Lastly, if you like this post, please don’t forget to share! Oh, and don’t forget to hit the HD button in the bottom corner to see all that crispy high def goodness :).

Au revoir!

Meg & Samory. These are the people you want to hang around! When I photographed their engagement session we randomly started talking about Batman. That was the moment that I knew I liked these two! It was a beautiful June day in DC for their wedding. Down in the heart of Capitol Hill, their ceremony was at Church of the Resurrection. They had a wonderful row house next door for the ladies to get ready in. We could just walk right next door for the ceremony. Perfect! Once the ceremony came to a close, we took some super fun photos of Meg & Samory in and around the church. After a quick breather it was off to the Clark House in Falls Church for what would be an awesome reception. Let me tell you, the dancing was on point. The groom may or may not have done the worm. Haven’t seen that one in a while 🙂 The night ended with a subtle sunset and some excellent dance vibes from the DJ (who joined us on the dance floor himself). Such a great night! Thanks again to Meg and Samory for having me along ! Best wishes to you both!

P.S. Check out those cake toppers! Awesome!
