Do you know what makes me happy? Adventure through a country with beautiful spots to shoot at. This trip with Alim and Yovita will stay with me for a long time. Unforgettable, I’m sure.

We first shot at Old Sacramento where everything just oozes cowboy vibes. It is a quiet place with many interesting spots. And the outfit that Alim and Yovita prepared for the shoot was so fitting that the old western feel was just too great to miss.

If I had to sum Jesen and Felicia up in words it would be: happy-go-lucky, cheerful and never too serious. They bring sunshine with them wherever they go. In fact, they remind me a little of Fen and I years ago, back in the days when we were still dating. I love how they interact with each other, and how loving and playful they are. There is nothing I enjoy more than watching people in love, and in a world where happily-ever-after gets a raised eyebrow instead of the expected heartwarming effect, seeing these two is like a breath of fresh air.

3From Champagne, we continue east towards Germany then decided to stay overnight in Luxembourg. We knew very little about Luxembourg. It wasn’t even in our original plan. But we thought since it lies at the border of France and Germany, that would be a nice resting place for the night before continuing on the next morning to Trier. We arrived in the evening and got a chance to roam around the charming old city center.

Towards the last leg of our journey, we drove past southern Germany through Fussen, NeuSchwanstein castle, then head down south towards Austria. Have you watched The Sound of Music? Most of the scenes from that movie was shot in Salzburg, southern Germany & Austria. So here we are enjoying every fresh breath up in the mountain. Breathe in, breathe out…it doesn’t get any better than this.

The view is magnificent! We marveled as we reached the top, soaking in the moment. I said to myself, “We’ll never forget this moment”. Pinched ourselves a few times before jumping around and laying on the wildflowers for this shot. Life is great!

Day by day, we come up with new travel itinerary and finally ended up in Lech, Austria. I wanted to stay here for at least a week longer, turn of my phone and enjoy the summer activities. We were so lucky to have found a Rote Wand Hotel through Tablethotels. This is by far the warmest & most memorable hotel stay ever, by that I mean they’re awesome…considering we stay in hotels for almost 30% of the year. Thumbs up for the hospitality. If any of you get a chance to visit the area, try staying here, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Oh yes, don’t forget to visit the local cheese factory.

For a little over a week we explore South Africa with two lovely couples. Setting Cape Town as our base camp was the right thing to do, especially when we found a homey Cape Heritage Hotel that welcomes us like a family. We set out to explore the Cape Peninsula, Table Mountain, Wine regions, beaches on separate days. Each day a new discovery made us fell in love with nature all over again. Not only does Cape Town has jaw dropping sceneries, great food & wine but also the friendliest people that made our stay memorable.

We stayed in tents at Buffelsdrift, heads up this is not your typical camping tent. This one has air conditioning, victorian bathtub and the best view of wildlife. We had a chance to get up close to some of the animals during our bush safari drive. Elephants, rhino, hippos, springbok, wilderbeast, mountain zebra, meerkat, and much more call this place home. Most of us grew up in big cities and the only wildlife we see are either in cages or in Discovery Channel. Our trip to South Africa made us see the world differently. We really are sharing our planet with these beautiful animals.

Can’t wait to share more photos, here’s a few sneak peek from our trip 🙂

I can’t tell you how much thrill we get out of conceptual photo shoots here at AXIOO. From the photographers to stylists, to editors and designers, we all get super excited when clients feel the rush to do experiments on concepts for their shoot. We thrive on birthing concepts based on the client’s personalities, their story, or something distinctive that makes them who they are. Originality excites us and we just know that we’d have a ton of fun carrying it out!

Today we’d like to show you one of our favorite artistic shoots of Bob and Wenny. For their pre-wedding shoot, we did a lot of opposites attract shoots as well as some that showed activities that were truly “Bob and Wenny”. But my absolute favorite has got to be the ones with the splashing of the paints. We tried to insert a hidden message in it: when marriage splatters you with various colors of life, keep calm and stay holding on to the one you love. That’s how you’re going to go through. And we loved how it all turned out that we translated that concept into inspiration for their pre-wedding album design!

Here at AXIOO, we are inspired by love stories, ignited by passion and challenged by creativity. It’s how we strive to turn captured memories into pages and pages of art.
