The Adventures of Rob & Lauren Monday
Edmonton to Peru

Well, I'm sure you've noticed that we've been awfully quiet lately. The reason is we've been working like mad on a new project...

The Adventures of Rob & Lauren!

In two days we leave to spend a month in Peru. We created a blog, and will be updating it frequently during our trip with all sorts of neat stuff. It's a return to our deep passion for travel photography. We are just unbelievably excited about this, and would LOVE if all you wonderful readers would check it out! 

You'll get to follow us as we journey through Peru, visiting such breathtaking sites as Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca, and trek through the Amazon to visit indigenous tribes. And of course there will be a TON of super cool photos. It's going to be an amazing adventure, and we hope to share as much as we can with you!

To check it out, visit this site: www.theadventuresofrobandlauren.com

And here's our super cool logo! Yay!

 We would be forever grateful and love you long time if you all would share this site with anyone and everyone who might find it interesting! We promise to make it as fun and entertaining as possible! This is our dream, and we are just so pumped to leave in two days and start this really fantastic adventure!

Love you guys, and hope to see you over at The Adventures of Rob & Lauren!

P.S. I think it goes without saying that this blog will not be updated while we're in Peru :) So if you're bored, you're going to have to check out the new blog!

And finally, I've been going through all the images from our India/South East Asia trip. I never had a chance to really sit down and look at them all, so I did, and wow, the memories that came flooding back! Here are a few that jumped out at me today:

A fish seller in Vietnam.

Making samosas in Calcutta.

 Traffic in Calcutta. I love the look on his face, and I wonder what he was thinking about.

 Our boatman in Varanasi.

 The Ganges river.

 Making cow pats in Varanasi.

The boats in the Ganges river.

Lovely girls in Jodhpur.

Photos for license Thursday
Edmonton

Hey everyone!

It seems like lately we've been getting a lot of requests to license our photos for magazines and textbooks (which is great!). Lauren did a great job of tagging all our photos and so when you search for things like "mendhi" in google images some of our mendhi photos show up! 

If you're a photo editor and you've been eyeing some of our work from The Wedding Travelers then definitely drop us a line. High resolution photos can be licensed for pretty reasonable rates.

If you're just some cool dude (or dudette) who saw our photos and thought they would look great on your wall then check out our travel print gallery

And finally since this blog has slowed down a bit since we've returned home from traveling be sure to check out our new wedding and portrait blog where all the new hottness is.

 

Cheers,

Rob

The Other Side of Rob & Lauren Monday
Edmonton, AB, Canada

So when we're not off traveling foreign lands, Rob and I are wedding and portrait photographers here are home in Edmonton. Our job is a busy one, and we spend a lot of time hanging out with clients, and having crazy fun at a whole lot of weddings. At this point I'm pretty sure we've attended more weddings than most people see in a decade. 

 

What a better thing to do with this unique and exciting life than to blog about it? We have just launched a brand new, super amazing blog all about our lives as wedding photographers. It might not be as worldly as this one right here, but it sure is fun! Make sure you check it out at:

 

www.robandlauren.ca

 

We will be spending time blogging on both the Wedding Travelers and Rob & Lauren, so now you have double the awesome! Can't wait to see you there!

 

Lauren :)

Random Photo Sampler Platter Saturday

I was looking through the archives for some shots for our new blog (coming soon!) and saw some photos I wanted to post here. I was thinking of going back through the whole trip and posting shots from each place. Who would be interested in that? Leave a comment if you want that!

 

For now here are those awesome photos:

Also, I have gotten a couple emails regarding the Hindu Wedding article, and how it's not finished. Oops! I'll definitely try to get that finished up soon for you all!

 

Cheers,

Lauren :)
