Preview of a new favourite day

Oh today was glorious gorgeousness all around. Early in the morning I got up, still full with turkey & took the highway to Stuttgart to meet with these two lovebirds. There will be more to come of all the beauty & fall-love! Brace yourselves! This wonderful lady? Yeah, she is my new roomy. Am I lucky or what? 

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Married Marta & Binh

As Marta contacted me I was so very glad my calendar held on open spot on this specific Saturday. You see, it was four days to their wedding, with their original photographer being taken ill I was able to have my first “fill-in” wedding.  The nervousness of not having met them in person was wiped away the very second we met and I was welcomed with warmth into their special day. Their ceremony was held in the midst of many friends and relations from all over Europe & Asia.

The Eternal City - a short trip

It went something like, Vale can I come next week? A couple of minutes later I had the airplane ticket & started to pack. The ability to go along with crazy spontaneity is one thing I adore in Italians. As the days grew colder and the rain just would not stop to visit my weddings I had the wonderful idea to take a break. My one free weekend in September I was able to spent with dear friends in and around Roma. 

The warm days involved a lot of happy strolling through the streets, a visit to the oldest Gelateria (ice cream place) in Roma, home made pizza and baby kittens...
but see for yourself.

Life in this moment - Monday post

tidy room 
 tidy mind what they say. I wonder if rearranging all my pinterest walls counts as well...

Anyhow, the first thing I did before I started the serious research for my bachelor thesis is reorganise my Pinterest pinboards. Some things just should be well tidied before you can tackle the big stuff...

Soooo what about life in this moment? Big things have happened...
my boss & inspiration to reach higher has often asked me about when I will move to the town where we both work.
Stuttgart is almost two hours away from where I currently reside & makes working in a studio a bit harder. For the wedding season we found wonderful solutions to the travel, work  & accommodation challenges but in the long run... well I would have to make a move.
Much to my shock, this move came quicker than anticipated... an apartment showed up and told me it wanted to be taken. In a big city, close to the center, with three rooms and most importantly a dishwasher (FINALLY) on top of everything this place was in a city where you never find an apartment, not even when you hunt for weeks and months... ask my boss. Within four days I decided to take this offer which came running to me, to find a roomy & sign the contract.
I still have to finish my BA in Würzburg, but will slowly move on to the new place. It is kinda nice to have a smooth transition. I can finish off here and already know the new place is waiting for me. 

Two weeks ago I had the first client meeting for an album design and oh boy, I was thrilled to learn this new process to be tackled!
After Jan & I had designed the album together (he is so kind!) he asked me if, quite spontaneously, I would like to come & shoot his family for a small fall / pregnancy session.
Speaking of shooting your employer and being all cool about it. Not.
So grateful we all made jokes the entire hour.
Thank your for asking me Jan! ;)

So here is Jan, his wife Ingrid & their son.
