In Sweden we visited Malmö and Stockholm during the Baltic tour. The weather was damp and cold the day we strolled through Malmö, but the sun was shining in Stockholm and the Swedes came out to enjoy it.

This is Valencia's own Santiago Calatrava's Turning Torso in Malmö. The tallest building in Scandanavia, where the windows don't even open. 

Finland!

20.08.2013

Finland was the following stop on the Baltic whirlwind tour. We hit Porvoo and Helsinki and all the sights in between over the course of one day.

During the travel piece I worked on in the Baltic capitals, my first stop was Tallinn, Estonia. I arrived via Barcelona after photographing a wedding the night before and then missed the car waiting for me to take me around the city and instead got on a bus.... disaster... disaster.... Long story short, I ran around old town Tallinn trying to connect with people and get images in focus before I took off some three hours later for St. Petersburg. It was nice to go through my take again for this post to see what I saw.. in my head it is all such a blur. I did love the blankets on the chairs for outdoor seating, in case of a chill, and elk sausage: yum.

This is the kind of wedding that everybody wants to be a part of. Laia and Josep were married last September in a gorgeous rural house where friends and family shacked up for the weekend to help out, and, make the party last longer. It was really special to be a part of this personal and beautiful wedding.  To see more visit Belle & Chic!

 

I was lucky enough to get assigned to a travel story with the fantastic Spanish journalist Rosa M. Tristan. We spent two days in the cultural capital of Russia. It was both exciting and challenging to be on a strict touristic route and find interesting images to illustrate the city. We visited five other Baltic capitals which I look forward to sharing in the future.

Spain's Revista MIA published a bunch of my photos for a story full of advice for future brides. Neato!

I photographed Joe and Kelly Vitorino and their beautiful Paso Finos horses on the Big Island of Hawaii for Hana Hou! Magazine. They have a stunning property on the Northern side of the island and offer rides and classes to the public.

Kicking off wedding season in Spain with Antonio and Helena's stylish and playful backyard wedding in Alicante. Not only did they throw a great party, but they are also so nice to be around and are really loved and respected by their friends and family (and JACK!).  Lots more to come about them and life in general in the near future.
