Road tripping through Tuscany

WOAH!  Finally back to blogging.  Loads of stuff that haven’t been posted, so hopefully I’ll get back into the habit.  It’s been a while.  Good thing I’ve got a ton of photos from two weeks around Europe this summer.  Because being chronological would be foolish, so I might as well start in the middle of the trip with our roadtrip around Tuscany.  At least… I think it was probably tuscany. So much perfect produce, gelato, old stuff and beautiful little villages.  We stayed at an amazing Airbnb in near Fivizzano, drank lots of wine, drove down to Cinque Terre (which will come up in another post later), and then back to Florence for a wedding… All to the sound track of a horrible Italian Radio Summer Hits CD.  Classic.

Amy and Mike | Botanic Gardens Engagement Shoot

Botanic Gardens seems to be everyone’s favorite place to shoot.  I’ve lost track of how many times people have asked to shoot there.  I always prefer to shoot somewhere new, but it’s hard to deny that the gardens are pretty gorgeous at 7am when the light is perfect and there’s hardly anyone else around yet.

Nigel and Fitri | Gold Coast Wedding

Nigel and Fitri got married a few times.  This was the rainy one.  By “rainy” I mean…. in the middle of Cyclone Marcia.  I always had the impression that Australia was a sunny, dry place, but the entire team we were down on the Gold Coast it poured.  Drastic measures were taken: panties were thrown off buildings, a covert operation to hide chili/onion skewers around the venue took place, and we managed to hold back the rain at the right time to get outside for a few photos at the right time. 

Pao and Neen | Bangkok Wedding

A while back, my bro Pao got married in my former ‘hood, Nonthaburi.  What a strange place for an Island boy to get married.  The venue was a totally gorgeous, traditional Thai style resort.  Pao and his sweet bride Neen managed to make a baby Whaleshark before I even got around to posting their wedding photos.  Can’t wait to meet the kiddo!

Sadhvi and Fredrik | Majapahit Villa Wedding | Bali

So I did all these destination weddings LAST YEAR that I haven’t had a single second to post properly.  It wouldn’t be right to not post some of these.  Sadhi and Fredrik’s day was exactly the right size, in the right place, with the right amount of hilarious moments.  Some are a little more hilarious now that some time has passed.  Like that time we were imprisoned in a house in the middle of nowhere for hours, or that time with the flower floats that went horribly wrong, which led to a (rather successful, I must admit) banana leaf expedition, that hipster, and the facebook animal centerpiece protest.  All well that ends well: everything looked perfect, the night ended with one too many pina coladas, the rings did not fall, and I managed to unlock the toilet door the next morning.  Love ya Sads! xx
