In Life

001: As you read this, I am currently in Florence probably bumbling through the city like a lost and confused tourist, waving my hands frantically at a confused stranger in an attempt to support my non-existent Italian with universal hand signals for directions to restaurants, the bathroom, and other important things. But mostly directions for food.
002: I will have already shot my 2nd wedding, which took place in Tuscany and will hopefully have some amazing images to share with you guys, fingers crossed!

  • Wow I can’t wait to see what the images from the wedding in Tuscany look like! I’m going to Rome next weekend with my boyfriend and some friends and I’m so excited because we’re staying in a vila outside the city so it will be truly so relaxing! Thanks for the recipe recommendation too, I think I’ll try it out tonight :)

      Thanks so much Danika! I have a lot of work, so it might take a bit of time before the photos show up here, but yes do stay tuned! And Rome sounds amazing. I really want to go there one day as well. Have an incredible time!

  • Second wedding already, wow that was quick! Good work. Florence, oh my gf would be so jealous. One day she’ll get to go.

      This was actually booked before the previous one so things will slow down for a bit again I think. And yes Florence was amazing, hope your gf gets to go soon. There are so many amazing things to see there.

  • Congrats on shooting another wedding so quicky, I’m sure you’ll do great!

    • rae

      Thanks Elise! This wedding was actually the first one I booked, the one I shot the week before was a last minute thing. It was so fun though!

  • Oh congrats on getting another wedding shoot! That’s awesome! I hope you’re having fun in Florence! Have an amazing time! <3

      Thanks, Bash! Actualyl this was the scheduled first wedding – the one the week before was booked later :) And yes I did! Florence is absolutely stunning.

  • Hope the wedding went well and that you’re having an amazing time right now!

    • rae

      It did, although I ended up getting a stomach flu so it wasn’t exactly the ending to the evening I had hoped for!

  • Great work!

      Thanks Sara.

  • That recipe looks amazing! I’ll have to try it out sometime. I love stuffed baked veggies, & as you pointed out it’s easily made vegan, so that’s great for me! Also the post you linked on racism in the U.S. was such a wonderful read. I’ve tried explaining this concept before but the writer couldn’t have done so more eloquently. Thanks for sharing!

      Doesn’t it? I really hope to make it soon. And so glad you enjoyed the article. Talking about race is such an important issue that so many people – even well meaning liberal people – somehow oftentimes get so wrong. So glad that you understand and that this article might help you explain it to others who might have trouble understanding it.
