Samuel was recently invited to Hong Kong to photograph the wedding of two beautiful HK residents. Although the wedding photos can’t be shown, we can share some personal images from Samuel’s instagram (@samuellippke)

Joined by assistant Audrey Armada, talented photographer Adam Sjoberg and long time friend Scott Henning, Samuel explored the ins and outs of Hong Kong as well as brought in the New Year in style at the W Hotel.

After the amazing experience with Adam & Scott in HK (As well as a beautiful wedding) Samuel & Audrey bought last minute tickets to a much warmer climate; Thailand.

“Scuba diving, exploring Phuket on a scooter, sipping .45¢ beers and lounging poolside were the extent of this perfect year end/unwinding vacation/Thrill seeking trip” explains Samuel.

Enjoy a few of our favorite images from the journey.
