From Angela :
"Since we just got married it has been my dream to travel to Paris for our 5 year anniversary. 5 years went by and the trip just didn’t seem realistic. We just had our second baby, bought our first home and I was really sick earlier that year so traveling across the globe was not even in the conversation. But the desire in my heart was still there, quietly tugging at me. One night after a conversation with a close friend, I decided that unless I took some sort of action towards making this travel dream a reality, it was always going to be just a dream. So I started a little savings envelope towards that trip and put money aside every chance I got, skipping nail appointments and passing up the opportunity to buy new clothes.
Almost two years later, we finally had enough to comfortably travel Europe for close to 3 weeks and so we set off on our anniversary adventure. This trip was so special to us! We both were ready to slip away from reality and everyday busyness and focus on each other and invest into our friendship. It was really refreshing to be able to leave the kids and go adventure together, just the two of us. Stay out late, ride bicycles, and do other normal activities that get a little complicated to enjoy once you have two babes at your hip. Paris was everything I had imagined. It stole my heart, just like I knew it would. I fell madly in love with the old, charming city. Being a photographer myself, I couldn’t imagine being in Paris and not taking the opportunity to to get our photos taken to save these memories forever.
The shoot was not at all what we had anticipated. The weather changed dramatically before the shoot. I imagined warm, golden photos but in the end it turned out way more romantic than we could ever imagine. I was really concerned with how we’d look on photos being totally soaked in the pouring rain. My hair literally looked like I just stepped out of the shower! But the photos turned out beautiful. The best part of the shoot (aside from the fact that our photographer was down for anything!) was that we had SO MUCH FUN! The rain seriously didn’t bother us one bit. My husband and I really enjoyed just being together, holding hands, kissing, and running around in the rain. I felt young and free. That was the best thing. The photos turned out wonderful but the experience of running around in the rain with my love, after being married for 7 years and having two kids, it was unforgettable. Life gets so busy sometimes and it’s so easy to get carried away with everyday tasks that we forget to enjoy those simple moments and to just let lose and be wild with the one you love."
From Angela about Peter & Veronika
"We really loved getting to work with Peter. He's a really kind guy who cares so much about his clients. Peter went above and beyond for us and we truly had an incredible time during our anniversary session in Paris, even though we were caught in heavy rain during the session. Honestly I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with a photographer for such a special shoot. The photos were lovely and we will cherish them forever. And just in general, we loved getting to know Peter on a personal level; he’s a genuine person with a kind heart. We are grateful for a friendship that was formed! Thank you for all your hard work and dedicated Peter! :)
Thanks again for everything!
