BALI-ADVENTURE & RELAXING

I’ll try to make this dialog quick since you would probably rather see the photos below.

As you may know, my brother Ira is a great photographer, he was an intrical part of me becoming a photographer as well. He had a bride and groom hire him to photograph their wedding in Bali Indonesia, which just so happens to be the best Island in the world (Conde Nast said that at somepoint) Anyways, Ira showed the clients my work as well and they had me fly out to document the wedding day with him. Perfect right? To top it off, Andrea; Ira’s wife came out to assist so it was a family affair.

What you are about to see is me on vacation with my brother and sister in law… you think that sounds boring? Well you’re wrong, yeah I ditched them once in awhile and explored solo. Such a great trip! More images to come of the gorgeous wedding!
