In the attempt to write some new content on the blog while I’m in the middle of editing a million weddings – here are some travel photos from 2013! Looking back, some of these I never blogged before for whatever reason, probably too busy shooting weddings of course :). I started 2013 off in Sydney, Australia for Natasha and Karim’s wedding on January 1st, and then stopped by Tokyo and Saitama, Japan on the way back to shoot some time-lapse. In July Betty and I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey so that she could attend a professional conference. In Turkey we stayed after the conference for a few days and traveled to central Turkey to see the Cappadocia region. For engagement sessions I traveled to New York City twice, and San Francisco once, and then of course we were back down to Florida a few times to see Grandma or to drop Miles off and pick him up! Also, Betty made two trips to China to visit Nanjing and Ningbo, and also jumped across the pond for a quick visit to Amsterdam in the Netherlands! Pretty busy year now that I look back on it haha, enjoy these photos from our travels throughout 2013! Which one is your favorite?

I just love the small little side streets around Tokyo, this is in Ueno near the SkyTree. Nothing particularly amazing about this photo but it reminds me of wandering around the city.

Later in the year I headed up to New York City for a few days to shoot engagement sessions in both June and July, so of course I did the touristy thing here and there and took photos and time-lapses in the city!
