Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 7 | Wuyi Rafting & Hiking Heaven-Traveling Peak

China Travel

Day 7 of our China adventure kept us in the Wuyi mountains of Fujian province, this time starting off with some rafting in the morning before things got too hot and then MORE hiking after lunch! We braved “Heaven-Traveling Peak” which is touted as the No. 1 scenic spot in Wuyi, beautiful view – way too many steps to climb!

Our “captain” pulled over and gave us some shore time to explore a little outcropping – but I think it was more for them to have a smoke break, lol!

Miles got to stand up on the front of the boat for a photo with the famous mountain peak in the background.

Reminded us of Horseshoe Bend in the American West! It’s almost like the Colorado River… almost…

About to make that trek up those stairs behind us to the green spot on the veeeery top!

Those tiny stairs so far away are what we just climbed up, the little pavilion is where we took the first set of pictures from before these.

When we were done we swung by “A Thread of Sky” a super narrow canyon…

…yeah I didn’t fit :) Well, they said I could but I sort of gave up, wayyyy too narrow for me to be doing this in China :)

Travel | Tokyo, Japan Day 1 – Ikebukuro, Akihabara, Shibuya
After photographing in Sydney, Australia for a little over a week with both a destination Indian wedding and a couple days of personal travel, I took a few more days to travel for myself and ended up in Tokyo, Japan. I hadn't been to Japan since college and have always wanted to go back, so this was a perfect opportunity since I was on the other side of the world already =). I came back with tons and tons of photos, time lapses, and videos... with no real idea how I could possibly organize them and present them to the world! I think the video will come separately, and for now I will try to present everything I did each day as a way to share w ...

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 ...
