Honeymoon Series: Anniversary Photo Shoot by Katie Mitchell Photography

This is post continues our honeymoon series – I can’t wait to share them all with you! If you have any specific questions, just let me know in the comments below or email me at heather@3blackcatco.com!

Since Roswell and I took a delayed honeymoon, it ended up being the perfect time for anniversary photos. A little over a month before our trip, I contacted Katie Mitchell, an Australian photographer living in Paris that I had been following on Instagram for a while and had fallen in love with her shooting style. Katie instantly made Roswell and I feel at ease in front of the camera while engaging us in conversation. I would highly recommend a photo shoot for anyone on vacation (especially with Katie!) – it was much an amazing experience to meet a local photographer and have this photos that we will cherish forever. Thank you, Katie!

Honeymoon Series: Brussels & Bruges

After spending three amazing days in Amsterdam and getting used to being on vacation, we packed up our bags and walked to the train station to catch our train to Brussels. One thing that I LOVE about Europe is the ease of getting around. I wish that we had trains in the States that could just take us to another country! In less than two hours, we had left the Netherlands and arrived in Belgium. Conveniently, our hotel was again right next to the train station (literally across the street) and we walked off the train and set off to our hotel. We stayed at the Park Inn by Radisson Brussels Midi and I worry that we may have been a little too spoiled by the Grand Amrath in Amsterdam. We thought the location was great being right next to the train station and a ten minute walk to our reason for going to Brussels (more on this later), but it was really far away from the main downtown area that we spent a majority of our time. The quality was okay, but nothing near where we stayed in Amsterdam (or even some hotels in the States).

Nearly a year after getting married, Roswell and I finally packed our bags and embarked on our amazing trip. We knew that we wanted to go to Europe and actually had a honeymoon registry for our wedding in lieu of a traditional gift registry. Having an extra year to save also helped us truly make this an unforgettable trip. Continue reading

Photo Friday: Honeymoon Sneaks

We’ve been home a week from our honeymoon and I finally spent some time culling all of the photos I took over the two week period (over a thousand photos total). I wanted to share a few photos from the amazing places we visited while I wrote longer posts dedicated to each city. I can see below, I might have a bias towards one of the cities. We had such an amazing time, definitely learned a bit about the world and how we like to travel and we’re already looking forward to our next trip! Continue reading

Honeymoon in a carryon

Roswell and I have been looking forward to our honeymoon for quite a while now. We got married in April last year and we already knew our honeymoon was going to be delayed until after the grad school semester had ended. When we were in the midst of our wedding planning and preparation, Roswell interviewed and accepted his new job position in Austin. Two weeks before the wedding, Roswell packed his car and headed to Austin – the very morning, we picked up our marriage license at the court-house in fact. He flew back the week of the wedding and the day after our wedding, I dropped him back at the airport so he could start his new job in Austin and we started our 8 months of living in different states.
