For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you may already know that we spent nearly 3 weeks in Europe this summer, both as a vacation with our girls as well as a working trip with several portrait sessions along the way. The primary reason for our visit to Europe was for this particular event, which was a vow renewal to celebrate Keli & Doug’s 20 years of marriage. The best part–Keli has been my best friend (Stef) since 3rd grade, and Keli, Doug and their kids are dear friends of ours (more like family, really). When they invited us to photograph this milestone (and be their guests in their rented villa in Provence for a week), we were thrilled and honored! We have photographed their family many times over the years, but this was definitely the most special; everything was perfect–the gorgeous landscape in France, their beautiful family and enduring love for one another, and all of the little details that Keli planned to ensure a memorable day. Most of the portraits were taken right outside the villa we all stayed in, and the last few were in the surreal little village of Gordes, just a short 10 minutes away. Thank you to Keli and Doug for including us in this milestone in your lives–a week we will never forget!! Stay tuned for images from the other 2 weeks and various locations from our European portrait sessions. :-).
