I’m so thrilled to announce the launch of my new website for A Wandering Heart – my travel and lifestyle blog!  The site has been completely redesigned and features galleries of my work, more about me and my photography services as well as guides and publications where my work has been featured.  I’m so excited to officially offer travel and editorial photography, lifestyle photography and content creation for brands in addition to my wedding work.

The biggest feature of the site is the blog where you can read all about my adventures and see more of my current work.  I want to show you my travels through my eyes and heart, travel that moves the soul.  Please visit the site to see more and let me know what you think!

I’m completely honored to have not only my photos, but also my words published in an article I wrote for Snippet and Ink!  I am addicted to travel and have enjoyed going to so many great locations across the world.  While I mostly photograph destination weddings, I also create travel photography featuring destinations, properties and cultures.  I’ve been lucky enough to have my travel photos featured in various publications as well as write several articles discussing my travel experiences and stories.  I even have my own little travel journal filled with stories from my adventures.

This is the second article in the series I’ve written for Snippet & Ink on honeymooning in Italy.  In this article, we’re exploring the beautiful Amalfi Coast just south of Naples where I discuss my favorite towns to visit, great hotels to stay at and be pampered as well as my favorite food!  If you’re honeymooning in the Amalfi Coast or in Italy, be sure to check out this article for all of my tips and recommendations.

HOME PAGE:

I wanted the home page to have a rolling collage of my favorite images.  It also shows all the different types of photography that I do including weddings, engagements, rehearsal dinner’s, lifestyle, portraits, branding & travel photography.

ABOUT ME:

Here, you can learn more about my background and photography experience as well as what my style is and how I approach my work.  There’s a page dedicated to press & publications which shows everywhere that I’ve had the honor of being published.  Last, there’s a fun page that I love, which tells you a little bit more about me and my fun side!

GALLERIES:

I have separated my galleries of work into Engagements, Weddings, Weekend Events (Rehearsal Dinners, Welcome Parties, Pool Parties), Portraits, Boudoir & Love Shoots.  Each one of those has multiple weddings or sessions that you can see and showcases a wide variety of wedding styles.

GALLERY:

Each individual gallery is laid out in collage-form.  I wanted the design to be unique, and showcase multiple images at a time.  The images change randomly and you can see a wedding or shoot from beginning to end.  There’s also an option to show a full-screen gallery of the particular gallery at the bottom if you’d like to see the images larger.

LIFESTYLE + TRAVEL:

I’m so excited to finally have my lifestyle and travel work as a part of my site as well as work that I am offering clients.  I have always enjoyed traveling and taking photos wherever I go.  I have a very large collection of travel work and have also had the opportunity to write articles and have my work featured on multiple publications.  I am available for assignment stories for publications, hotels, travel industry companies as well as tourism boards so please contact me if you’d like to feature my work or hire me to create imagery for you.

I also have a personal travel blog where you can read stories about all of my adventures on the road…and in the sky…and on the water…and everywhere.

Hello and Happy Spring!  One of the most glorious seasons is finally here after such a cold and snowy winter across most of the US.  Everyone is welcoming sweet spring with open arms, and I know that I am most excited for all of my wonderful spring weddings coming up!
