Back when my husband and I first began dating (ten years ago!), he left the country for a few weeks to take a trip to Peru. The trip was a charitable effort to provide assistance to schools in the area. As part of it they went through Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, and a few other places. His wifi access was spotty at best, but he did his best to stay in contact while he was away.
His interest in photography and beautiful photos from this trip was my main inspiration for why I finally buckled down and bought my first dSLR. I was always interested in photography before but had never owned or even tried out a dSLR before. I was completely unfamiliar with anything related to photography outside of framing an image. I’m so glad I did, and am always thankful to him for inspiring me to pick up a more serious camera.
Without further ado, here are the photos from his trip. There are more over in this album, but I couldn’t share them all, so I chose some of my favorites to feature today.
These photos are stunning! Crossing my fingers I’ll be able to go in June 2018. I’ve been searching for a camera that will hold well for the weather/humidity. I’m also planning on doing the 4 day Inca Trail! Is there anything you would recommend for the climate and for the trail? I’d like to find one that isn’t too heavy to trek with, but also capable of taking gorgeous photos like your husbands. If you could offer advice, I would appreciate your help 🙂
I’m a really big fan of the Canon G9X for a lightweight camera. You can shoot in manual mode and it has a decent range (not so much for low-light though as it’s not a full frame SLR), and it also shoots in raw. I also use this underwater housing with it. If you don’t want to give up too much quality you can look into the mirrorless cameras as well. My husband uses a camera from the Sony a series that he loves. Have a great time on your trip, it sounds amazing!
Beautiful pictures, they really capture the light of the Andes!
Also, I believe it is “without further ado”
Thanks, my husband did a good job. And I just updated it. I had it that way before until a family member insisted it was the other, but ado is correct. 🙂
This is definitely beautiful content and I’ve thought quite a bit about Peru. It would be such an amazing experience and one of the YouTubers I watch just went on her honeymoon here which I thought was interesting! xx Adaleta Avdic
Honestly, your hubs captured this trip so well through these photos. I feel like I am right there. The colors and the feel are so vibrant. So glad he had a nice time! XO

Lima + Cusco was one of my favorite trips I’ve ever taken! The photo opps are ENDLESS! these are all so beautiful and make me miss it so much!!
Ahh, I bet! I’d love to go back simply to take a ton of photos. 🙂
