UP IN THE MOUNTAINS // Ecuador

Every year the University I went to puts together several mission trips during Spring Break. This year I went with a group of students, doctors, nurses and priests to Ecuador to help serve the needs of the people that we encountered. We spent our time up on the mountains of Ecuador, hours from a major city.

What I experienced was a people much more disconnected from the craziness of our world. A people that live simple in a beautiful place. Yes, most of the people we saw were lacking basic needs like clean water and standard medical attention that we can take for granted. That being said, their joy was very evident and impacted me tromendacly.

Here’s a film we put together on the medical mission trip and photos to go along with it, enjoy!

Honeymoon

To start off the new year with a bang we wanted to share some of our favorite shots from our honeymoon.

2015 was a big year, we got married! On the honeymoon we packed light, really light. Just a bag and personal item for each of us. We stayed at AirBnB’s, talked to locals, ate some incredible food and saw some of the most beautiful sights. All these images below are shot with a 40mm pancake lens. We love to take this lens on personal trips because of its light weight and versatility.

Here’s a list of where we went:

Ireland (drove all over the place)

London, England

Paris, France

Cinque Terra, Italy

Assisi, Italy

Rome, Italy

Christiana + Danny // Steubenville, OH

Here’s a little Christmas present for y’all. The wedding of Christiana and Danny VanSistine in Steubenville, OH. We had so much fun capturing this wedding with so many friends in the wedding party. There was 30 people in the wedding party, enough for a full football team. We lucked out with the weather and not all the leaves had fallen from the trees. We took photos at the Union Cemetery which was a great backdrop for the photos.

We had so much fun photographing your wedding Christiana and Danny!
