I had the most wonderful time photographing Paris a couple years ago and the experience has stuck as one of my all time favorites. I’m so excited to have the chance to jump on a plane and do it all over. I also happen to be traveling again with a couple of my favorite film artists — Curtis Heyne and Nathan Sage, the amazing talent behind Living Cinema. The city really does encapsulate it’s own marvel in a way that is nearly unforgettable, but anytime I need a little reminding I break out some of the photos from my last trip along with the beautiful footage below by the Living Cinema fellas and relive it all over again.
My very talented colleague Beth Helmstetter always knows how to please a crowd, and whenever I need some hosting advice she is the first person I turn to. She recently shared a few of her favorite self proclaimed “fancy pants” cocktail recipes on her blog, and I immediately started taking notes. I cant think of a better excuse to celebrate than giving them all a go, can you?
