We also managed to get into a gelateria with about 75 of the 98 family members in attendance, which was completely hilarious. Being packed shoulder-to-shoulder amongst your own family members in a tiny dessert spot in a city you’ve never been to before is just… a wild, remarkable, hilarious thing. I didn’t get any photos of this because I was too busy filming, so if you want to see that, well, check out the video above!
These images, and the many more I couldn’t fit into this article, hold some of the most precious memories my family will ever create together. Documenting this trip was truly one of the highest honors of my career so far. To piece together a time capsule of this scope that my family will look at for generations to come… it’s hard to put into words how much that means to me. I can already picture each of the families on this trip doing exactly what mine did when I was young; printing these images, stuffing them into photo books, and captivating their kids with stories of “that one time 98 of us flew to Italy together.”
I can’t wait to do the same.
