Photos from Guatemala

Guatemala has been one of the countries I’ve wanted to visit for probably 10 years now.  I had heard so much about the culture and landscape and knew it was a place I wanted to experience and photograph.  Last month, I finally decided to stop making excuses about being to busy and just go and do something for myself.  Best decision in a long time.  The landscapes are indeed amazing, and the culture is so pronounced and unique.  It seems anywhere I went I could have spent weeks shooting and never want to leave.

In Lake Atitlan people still live in a very traditional way.  Cooking with ceramic pots, and preparing hot chocolate with special stirring utensils made from coffee roots.

Unexpectedly, I also met some local wedding photographers there and I hope to start shooting destination weddings in Guatemala real soon.  I’m so grateful I was able to make the trip and walk around this amazing place.  Can’t wait to make my way back to do some more exploring.

Below are some of my photos from the week I was there.

I love meeting and shooting people when I travel.  Well, that’s almost my whole reason for traveling. These are some school kids, and a family arriving early to get a good spot for the parade.
