My Paris // Part Two // Film

I knew when I would go to Paris that I wanted to document our adventures without having to share anything online right away. I feared missing out on what could be incredible moments, if I spent that time posting to Facebook. I wrote a bit more on my magical experience there in Part One. Those images were all shot using my iPhone.

This set was all shot on my Beseler Topcon SuperD; a combat camera used from the 1960′s to 1980′s by the US Airforce and Navy. Alin and I were walking around Le Marais, a gorgeous, historic district in Paris, and an adorable older gentleman walked up to me and asked me if he could hold my camera. He proceeded to tell me how it’s been such a long time since he’s seen one one these and seemed surprised that it was in such good condition. He talked about how he used it during his photojournalism days in the 70′s and more interesting stories followed. I loved this moment.

I used to be the type of person that planned and typed out itineraries for trips. In the recent years, especially on this trip, I’ve learned to not plan out every minute. When you do that, you allow little to no room for the unexpected. The unexpected could lead you into beautiful, less-traveled places & conversations with strangers that could impact your life in the most brilliant way.

These film images represent the feeling I felt and still feel about Paris. Someday, I’d like to live there. A girl can dream, right?

Kiki + Cosmin // Day in the Life

I first met Cosmin at Dennis & Patricia’s wedding I shot around four years ago. I remember seeing a gorgeous painting inspired by one of my engagement photos and being speechless by its beauty. I later found out it was Cosmin’s and just had to shake his hand.

Fast forward four years. I was so honored that Kiki and Cosmin asked me to photograph them. I met up with them at his hip apartment near the city, and was greeted by the cutest French bulldog puppy I have ever seen. Cece likes to nibble on pretty much anything; including, but not limited to, pant cuffs, buttons, and paper towels. Kiki loves to laugh at Cosmin who apparently likes to laugh at his own jokes. She also loves doing laundry and walking around inside greenhouses. Cosmin spends most of his free time painting, playing video games, and taking care of his salt-water fish tank. Take a minute to see his work HERE. It’s pretty dang brilliant.

I will be posting photos from their summer Chicago wedding as well, but for now, enjoy this set of images from an ordinary day in their life.
