Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 6 | Wuyi Mountain Hiking

China Travel

Day 6 of our China Summer Vacation series! We started with exploring the natural beauty of the Wuyi Mountain area which is a famous area in China for the mountain range. Basically a National Park like we have in the US, super popular with tourists for it’s beauty and clean air… and of course it’s tea! So yeah, tea is huge in China, very hard for me to find some morning coffee anywhere in China but especially here in Wuyi where tea is king :). For our Sixth day in China we began exploring the hiking trails of Wuyi, winding through the mountains and next to tea growing freely next to you. Today on Day 6 we did some light introductory trails, only a couple of kilometers with minimal hiking… more to come!

In the morning we saw Betty’s cousin Pei-pei briefly before she was off to study some more!

Caught up with a tourist group as I got closer to civilization at the end of the trails, apparently I took the long way around! An unmistakable sight in China, wearing heels everywhere, even on a hiking trail in the mountains!

Another unmistakable sight in China, pre-wedding photo shoots in any scenic location! We saw this every day we passed this access portion of the river, and everywhere in Shanghai as you will see in an upcoming blog post from that part of the trip!

Chinatown with the Sony RX100V
Yeah, another light on content non-wedding photography blog post this week... but, I've got some REAL blog posts coming up soon I hope :). I was in Manhattan last week dropping off a lens for repair (dropped at Supriya & Joe's engagement session, oops!) and I decided to walk around the city with the newly acquired Sony RX100 Mark V to kind of test it out for photos, and actually NOT shoot video with it this week! I've been shooting my last couple of Behind the Scenes Vlogs with the RX100V now, which was the main reason I got the camera, but it's a camera... so I should probably take photos with it too. With some Summer travel coming up th ...

Beijing Day 3: Summer Palace & Winter Palace
Here is our long awaited (or not) follow up blog post to what else we were up to in Beijing during our May 2010 trip to China. Day 1 was the Temple of Heaven, Day 2 we headed out to Badaling to see the Ming Tombs and the Great Wall of China. Next up on our list of historic sites was the Summer Palace and the Winter Palace (Yuan Ming Yuan) on Day 3 of our time in Beijing. The Summer Palace was pretty packed when we were there, with many other Chinese tourists and school children seeing this historic site. Much like the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace historic site also includes a huge national park area with many smaller buildings and t ...

Hang & Bory’s Engagement Session | Palace of Fine Arts | San Francisco Destination Engagement Photography
Another blog post from a session that seems like an eternity ago! Ok, it was only back in June, but in the busy Fall season it seems forever ago =). I really wish we had more time or another day to shoot, as San Francisco's notoriously foggy weather arrived in full force. As we pulled up to the Golden Gate Bridge we caught a few fleeting glimpses before it was swallowed by fog for the entire day. We moved over to the Palace of Fine Arts with the intent to return to the Golden Gate but every time we were sort of in the area of the bridge... fog and more fog. Let's do a sunny Georgia session in the Spring Hang and Bory!! Though I do love San Fr ...
