Well this has been a long time coming (very much behind on my blogging this year!), but I had an amazing time back in June out in Lake Garda with Joe and Lauren.  Everyone was extremely welcoming, and my love of shooting in Italy several times each year was seriously reinforced after this fun weekend in the sun!  So much so, Marie and I returned just a couple of weeks later to the same spot for some holiday time, and we had an amazing trip exploring the small towns of Sirmione, Garda and Bardolino.  Joe and Lauren, thank you so much for bringing me out to Lake Garda for your wedding, there’s a reason I was there still shooting at 2am… you’re great people with great friends and I had a blast making photographs for you 🙂
