You can reserve flights for under $999 from several cities around the US on Expedia and Kayak.  Remember, best days to fly are midweek so why not fly in a few days early and stick around for a few days after the class and soak up the culture of this beautiful classic European city. USA Today just named Budapest one of Europe's most affordable cities! [link]

Last year Clay Blackmore and I along with 52 others (24 students, spouses, and friends) had a wonderful week in Tuscany, Italy. Yes, most of us stayed at the castle you see in the background. Because of the overwhelmingly positive response from the class we decided to do it again, but this year we're conducting the class in one of the most exotic locations in Europe - Budapest, Hungry!

Italy Class

I sure hope you can join Clay and myself in Budapest - it will be a BLAST! -

Robynne & Floris in Love

An engagement shoot done a little different. It was raining and it was cold, a real winters day, but nothing stopped these two from smiling. It was such a challenge taking photos at night, but I loved it. The cloudy weather and streetlights gave a whole new atmosphere. I'll be photographing their wedding in December and it promises to be quite unique and different as well.
