Travel Thursday | California Big Sur + Yosemite Trip Previews

Travel

Going two for two on Thursday blogging!! Sorry, it’s time to celebrate the small things around here :) This will just be a short post to recap what I’ve been up to this week and why this blog is featuring “filler” content with three days of the same wedding. Thanks for sticking with the blog on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday where we recapped the three day Indian wedding of Amir and Nasrine. Catch up with Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 by clicking on the highlighted text for each day.

This week I have been in California doing some fine art landscape photography and time lapse in Big Sur and Yosemite National Park. A nice break from shooting brides and grooms and to force my mind to work in slightly different ways and think more about lines, shapes, textures… all those other aspects of photography that are working in my subconscious mind during weddings. I’m thinking about turning this Thursday spot on the blog into a permanent “Travel Thursday” because I could craft a blog post about each one of the locations I visited on these 5 days in Cali! So now we have Wedding Monday, Technical Tuesday, Anything Goes Wednesday, Travel Thursday, and Sneak Peek Friday? Is that interesting to anyone else or should we focus more on weddings besides just on Monday and Friday? Maybe turn the Wednesday or Tuesday spot into something related to weddings in Atlanta?

For now, I want to just tease you with a couple of quick photos from this trip that were taken with the iPhone, yes my trusty iPhone 4 that never leaves my side. Enjoy a few more previews of the views I was getting while traveling for a few days in California!

Summer Vacation | China 2015 Day 1 & 2 | Xiamen & Gulangyu
This is the first post in a mini-series here on the blog from our Summer vacation where we headed over to China for two weeks in July during a little break in the wedding season (and Summer break for Betty's university). Feel free to skip these blog posts if you want to see the regular wedding content, but if you're interested in some photos of China read on! These were also all shot on the Sony A7ii with the 16-35mm f/4 OSS and 55mm f/1.8 Zeiss lenses. So, a little info there for camera geeks, I didn't bring my normal Canon 5D Mark III but took our newer small mirrorless camera which I loved! We started the trip flying out from JFK on Del ...
