What girl isn't a fan of romance movies? It seems like chick flicks can become an addiction to any girl who has ever felt the need for romance. Here are some of my favorite romantic gestures that have ever graced the presence of television and the big screen.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about Paris! I have a deep appreciation for the french culture, and a lot of times I am disappointed with photos taken in Paris or just France in general, because they tend to skip the actual beauty of the culture and focus on the monuments or architecture. Well, I came across the website of Olivier Lalin, a french photographer who shoots weddings not only in Paris, but all over France. Lalin's photos are stunning! There is a rare gift there, where the actual spirit of the moment, the sweet romance of not only the people being photographed, but the french spirit itself, really comes out to play. Here are some of his images. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

A fellow photography major, and friend of mine from APU - Miss Mary Lewis - has started shooting weddings! Her photos are absolutely stunning. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a creative photographer. What better place to start than with someone who has a degree in photography?! Check out her website and all of her beautiful photos.
