Europe 2016 - London, England and Brussels, Belgium

Well the Northeast storm Stella certainly took over our lives for 24 hours! I took yesterday as a day where I could sit back and enjoy some me time and FINALLY edit the amazing trip Ryan and I took to Europe last May. Yes that's right, LAST MAY! My life sometimes gets so crazy where I hardly have time to enjoy the moments that I captured in my personal life. After thinking about that for a long time, I'm making a promise to myself this year, that I will take the time to stop and bask in the light of the moments I'm living with my family in the here and now. Life is so fleeting and I need to appreciate every moment. Right now I'm appreciating that Ryan and I were so fortunate to spend 10 days meandering throughout London, England and Brussels, Belgium.

I took sometime off of looking at the world through the lens of a wedding photographer and jumped back into my high school roots of street and travel photography. It was a nice break and forced me to create in a different way which then translated into the remainder of weddings I shot throughout 2016. I am SO excited to share some of my favorite images from this trip with you and for 2017 as a whole. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did getting lost in them.

No matter where we go in the world we can always count on coffee shops to think Ryan's name is Bryan hahaha

I'll be forever a fan of European side streets <3
