16 Top Photogenic Moments of 2016

Going on a honeymoon immediately after our wedding was up for debate only for a nanosecond. A series of overwhelming and unexpected life events were happening simultaneously. Did we really want to plan and embark on a honeymoon in the midst of us moving to another city, relocating jobs, going back to school, and planning a wedding? Well, I was adamant for a trip 100%, but it was my husband who needed a tad more convincing.

It was quickly agreed upon that to make everything work, my job would be to plan the wedding and honeymoon. His job would be to find us a new place to live in a new city after he was unexpectedly being transferred for work. All of the events were good news, things that we both wanted and were waiting for. But when it rains it pours, and that was the case when everything started happening at the same time.

It was a tumultuous year, but traveling through California for two weeks made the chaos worth it, even though we were both sick at the start of our travels. Mountains of stress and excitement with no sleep will undeniably do that to you. What can you do, but to power through my jam-packed itinerary? We did just that and were rewarded with a very memorable and beautiful trip away.

My passion for capturing memories through the lens of my camera, my love for food and the joy I find in reflecting on my travel memories using a pen and paper results in a series of blog entries filled with warmth, pure happiness and inspiration. I hope to share a little bit of myself and my adventure of life with you.

  • Oh my gosh! You definitely did have a photogenic 2016! California was quite good to you! I’ve seen many photos of Pfeiffer Beach, but never of that hole in the massive cliff. I seriously HAVE to get there! Perfect honeymoon and respite from the chaos of moving and other life changes.

  • In spite of it being a tumultuous year with changes pouring in, you managed to hold on and really enjoy the beauty of California. Your pictures are really worth a million words and bring alive the beauty of the region in vivid colour.

  • You’ve got some really great shots here, some really capture the mood but for me Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur is the one that stands out, love the sun shining through the rock like somebody is shining a torch through it :D
