Under the Tuscan sky

Rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Rows of cypress trees. Unbelievably beautiful light. Big puffy clouds. That's how you know you're in Tuscany.

Italy: the polaroids

I couldn't resist taking a few polaroids while in Italy, now could I? I just love how this film renders those ancient textures and gorgeous colors.

Burano - the pastel city

Burano is the most charming place. As I walked through the town, I kept thinking, this can't be real. It's just a set, right? It's just too perfectly adorable.

I think the whole town is based on the gelato color system. Actually, the colors are controlled by the government. If a homeowner wishes to paint their house, they must submit a request to the government so that they can determine which colors are permitted for that lot.

Feeling woozy

I would notice, sometimes, that when standing in my hotel room or on terra firma, that it felt as though the ground were gently swaying and bobbing beneath me. I didn't know if it was a faint sense memory of being on the water earlier in the day, or if I was just drunk on Venice.

"You have to always be drunk. That's all there is to it - it's the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk. But on what? Wine, poetry, or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk."

Guillaume & Patricia Getting Married | Montreal Wedding Photographer

As it will become obvious from the photographs that follow, Guillaume and Patricia are an amazing couple. Patricia is a Chilean beauty whose excitement and joy illuminated the day. The love these two feel for each other was evident in every glance and every touch. It was such a great pleasure to photograph their wedding day.

Guillaume sees Patricia for the first time (prior to the ceremony):

Patricia can barely contain her excitement.

That smile says it all!

During the ceremony there was laughter.

And there were tears.

And laughter mixed with tears.

I just love this quiet moment after the ceremony.

Talent show!

And some dancing to finish off the evening.
