travels : puerto rico + california

Some years I travel a lot for work, and this is one such year. About half of my jobs are in another state or country, and I’m so so grateful. Grateful doesn’t seem true enough… more like a slight shock when I think back to all the experiences I’ve had because of my photography and the clients who hire me. I photographed some weddings recently in Puerto Rico and California, and I’d the pleasure of friends along for the ride so here are some shots of our good times together.

But first!

It’s easy to envy lives based on what you see online, and I think the biggest mistake is envying a photographer’s life. If you think about it, we’re professionals at the art of making a situation look interesting than reality. I’m always hesitant with posts like this since I know there are plenty of people who don’t get to travel and wish for it, and I don’t want to be just one more person instagramming my so-called perfect life. I’ve been thinking about this all year and I don’t know what the solution is.Ā  There’s no point sharing the sad bits because this isn’t the place, but sometimes it feels misleading to show the grandness.

I don’t exactly know what I’m trying to say or hoping you’ll think – but just remember that everyone has their own brightest days, and each is learning to love the skies they’re under.

I LOVE how you put the opening paragraphs. So simple. So true.
And, for the record, the pictures in this post are beautiful and tell a beautiful story.

I know that this may have been a bit of a catch-up “what I’ve been up to” kind of post, but the beauty of some of these photos is spirit moving. Thanks for sharing, Rebekah!

Those last two photos. WHAT. How can that be real????

Beautiful, friend. I love seeing your adventures and I’m so grateful you can travel and do what you love at the same time.


Powerful. True. Sublime. Exquisite.

Especially the last two photos. And the first one. And all of them.

I love how honest you were in this post, Rebekah; I think people need to hear that. Way to be brave and not afraid of sounding boring :).

Oh, and the second to last picture is beyond belief…fantastic

This post made my heart near bursting from all its raw pure magnificent but real-life beauty, Rebekah. It really was amazing. Having not gone anywhere myself but dreaming about traveling one day, this post wasn’t discouraging, but rather inspirational and exciting. thank you for that, love. <3 šŸ™‚
