{Why Hello There!}

My goodness! Sorry about the radio silence everyone! The last few weeks have been insaneeee. Between a last minute trip to London for the Olympics, celebrating our two year wedding anniversary and then me taking off for the U.S., I have not had a single moment to blog. I’ve been back in Portland for almost three weeks already (crazy!!) and I’ve been running around doing all sorts of fun things. I was supposed to head back to Amsterdam this weekend, but my trip got extended for work purposes (I’m not complaining!) and I won’t be going back until the second week in September. I might be popping in over the next couple weeks if I find the time, but for now I’m really just trying to soak up time with family and friends. If you really miss me, I’ve been posting to Twitter and Instagram, so you can follow my adventures that way (username is LizDenfeld for both)! Can’t wait to get back to regular blogging soon – until then I hope you stick with me!!

{Rachael + Christian Engaged}

I still have at least one more Greece post for you, but interrupting for today to show you some engagement photos I took for my friends Rachael and Christian last week!
Rachael, an American expat living in Amsterdam, contacted me months ago after finding my blog. She asked if I would be willing to take engagement photos for her and her fiance! I was so excited. It was the first time anyone had contacted me (that I didn't know) to take pictures for them! Well, we met for coffee soon after and we totally hit it off. We've been friends ever since (and she has since started her own amazing blog - Let's Be Adventurers - which is packed with gorgeous travel photos!). 
We finally got some good weather and I jumped at the chance to take photos for these two. I think we all went into it a little nervous not knowing what to expect, but it turned out to be a super fun and relaxed evening taking pictures of these two. They are so in love, constantly laughing and constantly smooching :) My kind of couple! 
Anyways, here are a few of my favorites from the session!
