If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that Sam and I just got back from our honeymoon in Italy and France. Wedding season is about to be in full swing (pray with me that the rain lets up a bit on Saturday for Brad and Irene’s Saratoga Springs wedding!! Who would have thought it’d rain in mid May!) so I wanted to share a few self portraits from our honeymoon. I actually wanted to take some self portraits in Paris as well (like we did on our last trip!), but the weather and timing didn’t work out. Luckily, we got these beautiful portraits in Umbria at the agriturismo we stayed at for almost a week. It definitely feels like the rain has been following us around, because it was actually a bit rainy during our honeymoon as well. We only had two nights out of the six where there was sunshine, so on our second to last day there, I knew we had to make it back for golden hour! It did mean we had to rush through Todi, which was actually one of my favorite little towns we visited, but it was worth it for these portraits in the olive groves. I hope you love these portraits in Umbria as much as I do!
We stayed in a lovely agriturismo just outside of Spello called Il Bastione. Run by Jacopo and his family, the main house is over a thousand years old and is surrounded by olive groves that were dotted with bright red poppies and beautiful white lace-like flowers. Best of all, Il Bastione has a sweeping view of the valley below. We actually took some portraits at sunrise as well, but the morning was a bit misty and it was the golden hour photos we got at sunset that I really love!
