CHARLESTON

Every flower box was freshly planted in preparation for warmer weeks ahead. Salty breezes rolled in the morning and sunshine finally found it's way into my life after this very chilly winter in Virginia. I had three sweet days in South Carolina this week with my dearest friend and second shooter (see more of Sarah on the blog here and here ) after wrapping up a stunning Raleigh wedding this past weekend (Matt & Lindsey's day is coming to the blog soon).

Coastal Travels - Maine, New Hampshire & Massachusetts

Boston, Marblehead, Salem, Falmouth, Martha's Vineyard, Gloucester, Hampton

A hop, skip, and a jump took us by foot, ferry, and car through some of the greatest cities I've ever seen. Martha's Vineyard was a dream to photograph, walking in Boston left me contemplating a post-graduation move to Massachusetts, and New Hampshire + Maine were a thousand times more breathtaking than I ever imagined. All in all- 12 days with stops and stays in the cities above has left me loving the East Coast and missing the ocean as I settle in for winter in the Virginia mountains.

EUROPE PART FOUR | PARIS

I walked away from every other city we visited knowing exactly how I felt about what we saw, whether I would come again, or if I even like being there. It was a sense that you could mold and shape the city to fit what you liked, hoped for, or desired. Paris was not so. It's as if it unapologetically stays constant without bending to fill peoples expectations or misconceptions. 

Kind but not overly friendly. History galore, but it did not feel crowded with tourist. Churches that are packed with human beings with cameras no longer speak the same truth into those lives. I've never been anywhere like Paris. It still seems to be an enigma. Utterly breathtaking and fascinating yet heartbreaking.

Paris is incredible. Not perfect with sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns, but incredible in the fact that it's alive. Completely imperfect but absolutely beautiful.
