In October I was brought on to work for a new brand, a villa-based travel company in Orvieto, Italy.
Throughout the process we discussed various experiences for the tour. The one everyone seemed most excited for was truffle hunting.
At the end of the second week of our tour, we were welcomed by San Pietro a Pettine for an adventure up the mountain.
Our group was outfitted with rain boots and two sweet truffle dogs. We made our way up the mountain where the dogs were able to fetch more than a handful of black truffles. A great way to start the truffle season.
Next, we were given a quick lesson on what happens to the truffles after they’re retrieved. Next, the truffles got a quick scrub down and were then shaved with a special tool to prepare them for our meal.
After our hunt, we were greeted by the most stylish dinning area and poured fresh, crisp glasses of Prosecco (always my favorite) and served a meal I’ll have a very hard time topping in this lifetime. Course after course of truffle toped deliciousness.
Here’s a peek at our adventure…

Last week I had an absolute blast hanging out with this lady in her downtown Charleston studio.
Just a hop skip and a jump away from upper King St, Harrison’s studio will greet you with a front door the perfect shade of “Charleston Pink”. The fun doesn’t stop there. All of her paintings are so full of color, beautiful line work, brushstrokes you can’t help but want to reach out a finger to trace.
You can see more of Harrison’s work on her website. You’ll find the link below!

This gem of a human stepped in front of my camera recently for some updated portraits and I could not be more thrilled with what we were able to create for her.
When you meet Alex you feel comfortable right away and her warmth and joyfulness are so contagious. She’s always a voice of encouragement and her brides are in the best hands!
Love cheering this one on! You can find her website here!
Alex, you are such a treasure of a friend! Thank you for trusting me to show your light through these images!
