Bonne Fête Nationale, mes amis! We're lucky enough to be in France for Bastille Day for the second year in a row, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Today you'll find us heading down to our home for the next week, @chateaudebouthonvilliers, so while we'll miss the fireworks at the Champ de Mars, I can say with full confidence that we'll be enjoying every minute of the national holiday. Probably with glass of champagne, at some point. See you soon@ @thesignatureatelier!! #thesignatureatelier #thesignatureatelierround2
We're here, and it's magical! And within our first 48 hours, I've/we've managed to 1) Get fined €70 on the metro [BOO] 2) Leave my purse in an uber [Igot it back, though!] 3) Witness excited football fans climbing atop city buses to celebrate the French win in the World Cup semifinals [soccer fans are nuts...] 4) Photograph good friends @sarahcbradshaw @jessfairchild @jameswitty, and 5) Be photographed by @juliepaisleyphotography! Today's you'll find us wandering once more, forever enchanted by this city [even though this is my TWELFTH visit in five years!] #abbygraceineurope
The auto responder is UP, my bags are [somewhat] packed, and I'm currently DEEP in pre-workshop mode (which means stress-drinking cold brew and running up and down between floors, then promptly forgetting what I went upstairs for in the first place). 🤦🏼♀️ À bientôt, Paris!! Cannot WAIT to see @juliepaisleyphotography @jameswitty @jessfairchild @anchorandveil @ashlynscarter @sarahcbradshaw @trinejuel @caseyhphotos and THE @katherinebignon at @chateaudebouthonvilliers in just a few short days!!
Dear @em3212, thank you for having EXCELLENT taste in bridal fashion and portrait locations. That train, veil, and architecture are 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!! #killingit. I will never ever get over how wonderful my job is!!
Their day will ALWAYS go down in my books as a career highlight! I don't know if it's because of how kind they both are, or the fact that they were infinitely more excited to be MARRIED than anything, anything else. Or maybe how Courtney & her sisters all did their own hair & makeup, or the fact that they served tacos and margaritas at their reception. Or MAYBE it was that they opened the dance floor with an unreleased @parachute song Will had written just for Courtney! Or that @mattwertz was there in person to sing as they shared their first dance. Probably all of the above. It was one of those days you put a pin in as a photographer because something intangible but substantial changed in my work as a result of capturing their day and their delight. Happy, happy first anniversary yesterday, Will & Courtney! Can we do it all over again?
NO SLEEP TIL BROOKLYYYYYYN! Because what else do you sing when you're on your way to New York for K & M's wedding at @brooklynwinery? Thanks to the Beastie Boys for THE perfect anthem. Photo of the gorgeous Katie from that time I photographed @katherinebignon's collection in Manhattan!
