We made it to India

» View Full Post

Thursday, December 31st, 2009 -

Well after about 25+ hours of traveling we finally made it to Mumbai India.We’ve been planning this trip for a long time. Stephanie and I have been wanting to go to India for sometime. So we are excited to finally have made it happen. Also our good friend Sandy who has a bunch of family in India joined us on the trip. So we should all have  a blast exploring India together.

Starting off at LAX

We made it on the plane

WE made it to Mumbai

l1000082

This is one of our first sightings on in India. It looks like he needed a spare tire.

l1000089

We’ve spent the first couple days getting settled into the city. We have a great journey ahead of us. We are going to be here just a little over 3 weeks. So much to see so little time.

We explored the city yesterday. So much to take in.

Our first stop was a house that Ghandi use to live in that has been turned into a memorial for him.

then we just roamed around, One thing about about India is there is a lot of poverty. It’s interesting though how everything here seems to work so well together. You will have regular city scapes then you go around the corner and you are looking at slums. But everybody just goes with the flow. THe city is so crowded but it seems to work in some crazy way. Just driving the streets is an adventure in itself. Nobody pays attention to lanes. It’s like a free for all. Everybody honking at each other but nobody getting upset. It’s controlled chaos. Also you never know when you will be driving down the street then all of a sudden there is a cow in the road. I love it.

The kids that live in the slums are so cute.

This is what they call the gateway to India. It’s right by the Taj Hotel that was bombed a few years ago.

I love the little work spaces people set up

Here is a shot from above some of the slums. hey have a large laundry operation going here. They do all this laundry by hand and somehow keep track of what laundry belongs to who.

The kids really work you for money. They say you shouldn’t give in to give them money. It’s so hard to resist wanting to do something for these kids.

They wouldn’t let up on me.

Just another way people live in the city

Honduras Wedding on The Island of Timon

» View Full Post

Friday, December 18th, 2009 -

This was a wedding I had been looking forward to for a long time. When my great friend Amanda from Fantasy Floral told me her daughter Cameron was going to get married on a little island off the coast of Honduras and that she would love me to be there I was so excited. I said count me in. I knew it would be a blast. So I decided to recruit a few vendor friends of mine to join me at the wedding and to make a little vacation out of it. I asked Dan from Plug Video. I figured Cameron wouldn’t mind having a video of her special day. Then I asked Carina from Flawless Faces. She didn’t hesitate to say yes. So now Cameron had a makeup artist. Then I asked Pete from Generations Entertainment. I figured it would be nice to have some ceremony music. Next thing you know we had a great team for this very small wedding on this very little island. So with my wife Stephanie as my second shooter we were ready for this special day.

There were only about 15 people total at the wedding.

When I saw the island we were pulling up to I couldn’t believe it. Talking about having an island wedding. WOW!

korbett_2196

When the boast picked us up there was actually a wedding cake on the boat headed to the ceremony location. I guess they didn’t anticipate how rough the 45 minute boat ride to the island was going to be.

korbett_0001

This is what was left when we got to the island.

korbett_0021

We made a quick stop on the island of Cayos Cochinos  to get the bride ready before we headed to our little island of Timon.

Cameron wanted to get behind the camera. She is actually pretty good. I might have to take her on a couple weddings next year. She grabbed a cool shot of Stephanie and I.

korbett_2836

Cameron was loving it.

korbett_2872

It was such an amazing day. Everybody had a blast.

Here are all the guests. Not a bad spot for a group shot.
