If Heaven Were White Sands National Monument…

To give you an idea of much I wanted you to see the actual beauty that is White Sands National Monument, I spent 5ish hours CALIBRATING MY MACBOOK SCREEN. Let that process for a moment. I could’ve been slow roasting ribs. Or napping. Or flying across the ocean to some

Chasing Suns…

Sunrises and sunsets are every photographer’s dream window of time. It’s the golden hour: if you’re lucky, the sky is awash with stunning hues, sharp angles are dramatized in the best ways possible and 97.9% of subjects look angelic no matter what. Can you imagine if the magic of sunrises

Carlsbad Caverns

I didn’t instagram any images from Carlsbad Caverns ‘cuz… well… it’s really hard to shoot in a super dimly lit space with a cracked iPhone 5. Heck, my 5D images didn’t even turn out as well as I’d hoped (note to self/ readers: bring a tripod) but I think these give you

The 6-Hour Wait For BBQ

Aside from its infamous brisket, Franklin’s in Austin is known for an obnoxiously long line. Like, long enough to have its own Twitter (@FranklinBBQLine) kinda long. Like, I got there hungover, ate breakfast tacos, took a nap, wrote some emails and still hadn’t even moved kinda long. Like… five hours

Be Easy, Big Easy

New Orleans is one of those cities that’s easy to fall in love with. From the culture to the people to the art to the music to the food – oh. my. god. the food(!!!) – every aspect of the city is charming and sweet and nostalgic in all the

Salud-a!

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to most on this roadtrip are random turn-offs in the middle of nowhere. How often is it that you get to pull off at a little town of <1,000 people to chat with locals and learn some history? Erin & I had

Same City, Different Vantage Point

I felt like the view from the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence deserved it’s own post, so you get two gems for the price of one this week. Consider it in the spirit of #FlashbackFriday! Situated at the heart of the city, this ancient fortress/ palace/ guard-tower not only has incredible

Florence (And The Machine)

This completely unrelated headline sounded clever a year ago when I first thought of it, but now I’m just eager to share some flicks from quite possibly my favorite city in Italy. Thanks to my amazing hosts, the Scarpellis (who just welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world… congrats

Exactly three weeks ago today, we said farewell to our island paradise to embark on our next adventure in a new world called the Pacific Northwest. While it was our first time ever in this part of the mainland, we’ve been so productive establishing our roots that we were able

New York City has given me enough memories to last a lifetime, but it’s always gutwrenching to say goodbye. While I’ve bid adieu to the city many times over, it was always knowing that I could come back to a mailing address here. Sure, I’ve got a one-way flight booked at
