I met the lovely Brianna and Manny on what I choose to believe was the hottest day that ever existed.

I’m pretty sure we could have cooked an egg on the sidewalk but still Brianna and Manny were amazing sports. They fought the heat, sweat and dehydration to explore the Vizcaya gardens with me and still looked good doing it. I’m so excited to photograph their wedding there in a few months.

Oh travel, you are my one true love.

One of the best parts of my job is the flexibility it gives me to travel. Last year I had a couple weeks off so my sister and I headed down to Peru.  I’ve always been fascinated by ancient cultures so it seemed like the perfect place to get some history and adventure. And man, did we have a blast.

Fast forward to this year and I was already antsy to travel someplace far again. On a whim, my sister and I decided to continue our traditional Sister Trip and chose to head to Italy. What better place to get some history? I had visited before but hadn’t had the chance to see Rome. My sis, who went to an artsy fartsy art school, had always wanted to visit the place where so many of her favorite artists had come from.

So we booked our flights on a Wednesday, packed as much as we could on two carry-on suitcases and left to Italy that Sunday. Yolo, amiright?

9 hours later we arrived in Rome. And it was love at first sight.

We did all the touristy things, of course. Colosseum, the Vatican, Forum, Trevi Fountain. But we mostly just wandered. We ate delicious things, people watched, drank a generous amount of wine, walked into all the cathedrals we could, and stood in awe of all the incredible visual inspiration around us.

We also headed to Florence and Pompeii for a day. I may or many not have teared up when I saw Michelangelo’s David in person for the first time and may or may not have cracked up at all the penises engraved in Pompeii. Seriously guys, those Pompeiians were a little pervy.

I’m so in love with Italy. It never disappoints. I can’t wait to visit again.
