Destination Wedding Giveaway

One year ago today, I was watching the Cartagena, Colombia Independence Day Parade with my husband soaking in the emotions, the culture, and of course the heat. I could not believe that at that moment, I had left the country for the first time (minus Canada but being from Detroit going across the bridge isn’t too big of a deal), left my babies at home, and starting chasing a dream that was so big, I could hardly breathe. (ps-giveaway info at bottom of post so keep reading!)

And during this trip, I met the most amazing people, created new friendships, and realized new goals. It was so raw and real that I was hooked. I was hooked to traveling, exploring, photographing new places and cultures, and of course watching wonderful people get married. It was in this moment that I knew I wanted this. Even if it took awhile, or never even happened again, I wanted this. I wanted to be a destination wedding photographer. 

After this wedding, I was able to also go to Jamaica with the sweetest, most loving couple, and be a part of their intimate celebration. And by intimate, I mean just them and me. It was so much fun, so relaxing, and of course so beautiful.
