We work rain or shine, like the Postal Service, but with fewer holidays. 🙂 We had the honor of shooting a session with Jennifer, […]

Ahhh….life is good. 🙂 This is the continuation of our fabulous trip to Europe. After spending a week or so in München, we jetted on over to Ibiza (small island off the coast of Spain) for another 8 days. Of course, when the 8th day came, we weren’t ready to leave, so we made a […]

  • Jamila - OH MY GOD!!! I want to move there!!! It looks like you guys had an absolutely AMAZING (and well deserved) vacation. I must say, it’s nice to know you can still take incredible vacations after the actual honeymoon is over 🙂

  • Fletch - WOW! Amazing the weather was amazing as well as the views!
    Tori and I should have stopped by the islands when we were in Spain.
    I was wondering what the music would be for the video and I giggled and thought “how perfect”.

  • Melissa - OK, I can see why you two had decided to “squat” one more day. I don’t blame you!!! We have never been to Spain/Ibiza but you have totally sold ME on the idea that I/WE MUST GO TO THAT PLACE!!! 🙂 Spectacular images! No more hippies. You two have definitely earned the names “travel god and goddess”. C U SOON!

  • Jeff - My mind is still hanging out somewhere in the Mediterranean. I like to think that it’s having a good time without me. 🙂

  • Nicole Lang - Smply Marvelous!!! Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us.

  • Shawn Grant - WOW!!! What a gorgeous place, looks like you two had a blast and it is well deserved! I love love love the third to last photo of the two of you, ahhh the life of la vida 🙂

  • Marj - You guys must have had so much fun! I hope some day I will be able to take adventures like this. The only fun place I’ve been so far is Ireland 😉 And it was long before I was a photographer, so no good pictures.

  • Dave - Those photos are just gorgeous. I can’t believe you actually came back to work—I think i would have flaked on that! Jeff….I cannot believe you are wearing a sarong. That is SO WRONG!

  • Stephen Knuth - Betsy. Thank You for your great comment on my blog! I love these shots!! Have you ever thought of joining the stock photo industry? I am being serious, travel companies would eat these up! 🙂 I can tell Jeff let his “warrior” side out a little.

  • Sylvia Borgo - I. Am. So. Jealous! Actually, I’m surprised you guys came back to SD! Your images are heavenly! My fave shot is the last one of you two. Smoochie Cuteness!

  • Devin Shea - Absolutely Amazing. I am so jealous of your vacation it looks incredible. It is great that you and Betsy were able to get away a little bit for a much needed vacation. My favorite picture is the one with you on the cliff with the sarong and your back to the camera. Classic!!!

  • Mary Marantz - wow!!! Incredible!!

  • ohana photographers - we want to go to there! looked totally awesome guys!

  • Eric The Red - Wow! What a stunning place. I would love to know how you found it and booked it? Great pictures.

    @Eric: our friend in München found it by having a few Helle with the owner. Here is the website for Anam Cara http://www.anam-cara.info/?op=start. 🙂

Guten Tag! We’ve been looking forward to our European adventure for MONTHS. Not only were we able to spend time with our friends Scott and Marietta, but we were also fortunate enough to meet some other really great people. We saw some great sites, ate some yummy food, and drank the cleanest, most pure beer […]
