Munich, Germany

I went to Munich last week for a conference and got to explore the city a bit one evening. We took the train from Unterschleissheim to the main square in Marienplatz and walked around the city center. It was so lovely! We listened to a band playing Mozart symphonies in front of the Rathaus, ate freshly made butter pretzels (so good), and found an amazing indoor market. The city seemed to have just the right blend of ancient and modern, which I really liked. Guten Abend, Munich!

Back in Vienna!

I’m back! When I left Austria a few months ago, I couldn’t want until the day I returned. I truly left my heart with this city and its people, and didn’t feel like it was time yet for this season of my life to end. I prayed that God would direct my steps back to Vienna if it was His will, and as you can see, here I am.

The first few weeks here have been so wonderful, as expected — full of reconnecting with my Austrian friends and Americans living here, and revisiting all of the places I love in this city. Luckily it hasn’t grown too cold yet. In fact, the weather has been incredible, and the parks are full of summer flowers and autumn trees. My parents came to visit me this week, and I was able to share this wonderful city with them (see photos below). I’ve been busy with the church here, preparing for a conference we had in Munich last week, preparing for the upcoming year, and teaching a class on Sundays. A few of the people at the church here asked me to bring my passport to them so they could tear it up and prevent me from leaving again. And I’ll be honest: most days, that doesn’t sound like a bad idea.:)

Below are some photos I’ve taken over the past few weeks.

Brooke’s Bridal Photos // Chicago, IL

When Brooke asked me if I would be interested in doing her bridal portraits in Chicago, I jumped at the chance. I did engagement photos of Brooke & Nathanael last Fall, and it turned out to be one of my favorite sessions of the year. I always feel like a high-fashion photographer when I work with Brooke, so doing her bridal portraits in one of my favorite cities sounded like a dream.

I flew into Chicago on a Friday afternoon and we wandered all around the city at sunrise the following day. With the perfect light Chicago gave us that morning & Brooke’s insanely beautiful dress, I was very happy with the results.

Congratulations on your wedding day, Brooke & Nathanael! Wishing you many happy years together.
