The first day exploring The Wonders of @belmond in Brazil was the perfect example of everything that makes Rio de Janeiro so special. From an early morning wake up call to see sunrise over the city, to experiencing the beautiful views of Rio by both sea and sky, @belmondcopacabanapalace was the ideal home base. Staying right on one of the world’s most iconic beaches is a treat, but add in Michelin-starred restaurants, a vibrant pool, and old-world glamour makes it an unforgettable trip. With beaches, mountains, and jungles all within the heart of the city, few places shine as bright during golden hour. #theartofbelmond #gifted
Yesterday was the perfect mix of everything that makes Laguna Beach so special. This small town always seems comes alive with a nice sunset.
Only an electric sky can match the energy of Rio de Janeiro. One of the most beautiful cities I’ve been to and I’m excited to be headed back tomorrow! Lots of exciting things on the horizon, let’s kick it all off with Brazil 🇧🇷
Ever since I got into photography, I’ve heard people talking about Autumn on the East Coast and what an incredible sight it is to witness. I finally planned my dream New England road trip and capitalized on 3X rewards points on a rental car using my @wellsfargo Propel® Card. When you factor in the 3X rewards points on gas at gas stations and also dining out, it sure feels like this card is designed for a trip like this! #ad #lifewithpropel
It’s not even night yet but I think Howloween is @grahamrubens’ favorite holiday 🎃😂
Such a perfect afternoon taking kayaks along Belmont Shore and enjoying sunset here in @visitLB. It’s been so fun coming up and taking advantage of all the things to do here in Long Beach. With so many dog-friendly restaurants and tons of activities on the boardwalk along the coast, it’s been a great place to hang! Graham made some puppy friends at Rosie’s dog beach, and we made sure to grab some dinner along the bustling @4thStreetlb. Pair that with an incredible sunset and you know I’m a happy camper!
You can predict all you want, but most nights nature marches to the beat of her own drum. I’ve been stuck inside on nights the whole sky was red, and I’ve been all set up to shoot on nights the clouds just won’t part. It’s forever unpredictable yet isn’t that the beauty of it? Nothing epitomizes this more than the ocean. Beautiful, violent, untamable, and calming. It’s every conflicting adjective you can think at any given time. More than anything, that’s what always keeps me coming back for more.
San Diego sunsets are something else. Every day feels like paradise, and each San Diegan will tell you their go to spot for golden hour. It’s no secret, La Jolla is my answer each time. Even though there’s no seasons and our sports teams can’t win, the people, beaches, and relaxed vibe of the city makes it my favorite place in the world ♥️
A trip through the woods never felt so magical. For all those who appreciate color, this is the season for you. Road tripping never felt more enjoyable as @shortstache and I passed through these incredible forests. Growing up in San Diego it’s hard to imagine a place I’d rather be, but Fall on the East Coast sure is hard to beat 🍁
San Diego is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. It has it all. Beaches, mountains, and the perfect blend of people which make it so unique. Each part of town seems to have its own character too, which means there’s a part of the city that’s a great fit for any mood. It’s funny how you travel far and wide in search of new experiences, but so often I’m left thankful with where I call home. Wouldn’t change it for the world, and on nights like this I’m left with a full heart and star struck eyes.
Still euphoric over the magic of Fall colors in New England. One bucket list trip I put off for far too long, but now that I have a taste I think I’m hooked 🍁
Those dreamy ocean views along the Italian coast really inspire the artist inside you. Walking along the cliffside, I saw countless photographers, artists, and musicians all seeking inspiration in the beauty along Amalfi. Isn’t that amazing? How something as simple as a view can push people to create something to share with the world. It always fascinates me watching a true artist at work, and this place was buzzing with talent. I don’t have much when it comes to musical or artistic talent, but taking pics of these cliffside towns at day and the dead of night was as close to magic as I’ve felt.
