Portugal & Morocco

Stefani and I ventured over the pond to Europe and North Africa for our honeymoon. It was 2 weeks of adventure and relaxation that will be engrained in our lives forever. We shared indulgent food, amazing vista’s and a few days of just sleeping and chilling out.

Here are a few of the views we witnessed in beautiful Morocco and Portugal.

Gear wise, I limited myself to the Canon 5Dmk3 and 3 lens’:  35mm 1.4, 85mm 1.2 and 14mm 2.8

Lisbon is a very cool little city…

And Lagos, Southern tip of Portugal

My conclusion: the 35mm and 85mm I always said you could cover a wedding and most editorial shoots with alone, and apparently honeymoon’s too. The 14mm was nice to pull out in ideal locations. Portugal is a cool little gem of a country… highly recommend if you’re in Europe. Morocco, I’ve been wanting to see this side of Africa (World) for a while, and I was right, I loved it. It s a nice intro to a region that generally harbors skepticism, and yet the culture and people are extremely friendly and welcoming. We loved them both.

And we got some beautiful Moroccan rugs after an incredible negotiation with a masterful carpet salesman…. we walked away with 3.
