Travel Photography | Sneak Peek: Arizona

I’ve spent the past 10 days hanging out in the desert, which I think explains the lack of posts recently. I promise I’ll be back this week with a wedding-related update!

But for now, here’s one from Arizona – the view of my backyard:

Travel Photography | Big Island, Hawaii

Two months ago, I was just finishing up my trip to Hawaii. My best friend and I roadtripped around the Big Island for two weeks and had a blast and a half. We camped for about half of the trip and ended up rotating our cooked meals between chili and veggie burgers (hey, there’s only so much you can do with a campfire and a vegetarian diet!).

The highlight of the trip for me was our overnight hike to Waimanu Valley. It was the thing I was most looking forward to, albeit with slight trepidation. Getting there required a daunting drive down a 45-degree incline road (would our car make it down and up?), parking in a spot that’s known for break-ins (would our car still be there when we returned, a few days later?), schlepping down a long muddy path to the beach, and – oh, yeah – an all-day hike with a big-ass backpack strapped to my back (containing our tent, my sleeping bag, clothes, camera, and foodstuff).

IT WAS NOT EASY… but it was SO worth it. I spent two days lounging in my hammock on the beach, cracking open coconuts that had fallen off trees, and getting lost trying to hike to a waterfall nearby. It was everything I wanted, and about as far away from NYC living as it gets.

And as for the rest of the trip? Beaches. Lots of beaches. Brown sand, white sand, green sand, black sand beaches. Volcanoes. Natural steam rooms and volcanically-fed ocean pools. Coffee so delicious you can drink it black. Free birthday drinks. Unruly tourists. Perfect weather. Perfect EVERYTHING.

It definitely goes down as one of my favorite trips to-date.

Travel Photography | Hawaii 2012 via Instagram

I just got back from a two-week roadtrip around the Big Island of Hawaii! To say it was an amazing trip would be a complete understatement, so I won’t. But I had the BEST TIME there. I mean… waking up on your 27th birthday in a hammock on a gorgeous Hawaiian beach at sunrise, does it get any better? :)

I have hundreds of photos to go through, but in the meantime I’ll share a thorough documentation of the trip via Instagram.

Also! – I would love love LOVE to shoot a wedding in Hawaii, so if you are planning a Hawaiian wedding and need a photographer, please contact me!

Travel Photography | Grand Canyon, Arizona | Fall 2011

Let me tell you a little story about the time I finally, after years and years and YEARS of dreaming of it, made it out west to the Grand Canyon. That time was about 1.5 years ago. I do not look back fondly on this trip, as I spent most of it either sick or recovering from being sick. Oh, and there was that freak April snowstorm that happened while we were there. Consequently, I did not get to properly experience the Grand Canyon, and I swore someday I’d have a redo.

Well, I didn’t anticipate the redo to happen the very next year, but let’s just say I did it right this time :) We spent a whole day hiking a good ways into the canyon and back out. The weather was perfect. I didn’t get sick – well, at least not til the last day, when we took a plane ride over the canyon (which was pretty amazing til we hit turbulence and motion sickness knocked out half of the plane).

Besides the Grand Canyon, I also hit up Sedona, Scottsdale, and Tempe and – in true Lindsay fashion – roped my friend into doing a photoshoot with me in the desert. I’m already itching to get back out there!

Travel Photography | Barcelona, Spain

This post is LONG overdue. I went to Spain in March and am finally finishing up a series of 5 photo posts from the trip. You can find photos from Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla, and Cordoba from posts #1-4 here.

True, I’m a Brooklyn wedding photographer, but I will travel pretty much anywhere in the name of photography. So if you happen to be looking for a destination wedding photographer, you should contact me! :D

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Barcelona was my absolute favorite city I visited in Spain – and is perhaps one of my favorites that I’ve EVER visited. Very rarely in my travels have I gone to a place and thought to myself ‘gosh, I could totally see myself living here someday’, but that’s what was running through my head the entire time I was there.

Barcelona’s got EVERYTHING: gorgeous old architecture, gaudy (I mean Gaudi!) modern art, parks, mountains, an olympic park, a beach. I was kicking myself for only allotting 3 days here. It’s so massive that it ended up taking more time than I thought it would to get around. I honestly could have spent weeks wandering around the city.

A lot of people think the prevalence of Gaudi throughout the city is overkill, but I didn’t get sick of it at all. I adore modern art and architecture and appreciate outside-the-box thinking. I only had time to visit Park Guell and La Pedrera, but next time – and oh, there WILL be a next time – I’m hitting up more Gaudi hotspots.

I’d spent most of the prior 2 weeks not speaking much Spanish at all, mostly because I didn’t have to, but also because I was afraid of what might come out of my mouth when I tried to. But on my last day, I was in a gift shop near the Picasso Museum buying something for my sister, and the shopkeeper started speaking to me in Spanish (or perhaps Catalan?). And I found myself replying in fragmented Spanish. She seemed to comprehend, so she continued the conversation with me. It felt very much like one of those faux-conversations you’re made to have with a classmate in Level 1 Spanish, where the topic is pretty generic, and the phrases employed are fairly simple – except this was IN REAL LIFE! And we both understood each other! And suddenly, all those years of middle school / high school Spanish have paid off (6 years and one other foreign language later, but hey).
