• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Off to Europe! A look back at winter

I will be traveling through Europe for the next couple weeks as part of my honeymoon, courtesy of me winning a contest from swissair and Swistzerland Tourism. My husband and I received roundtrip airfare for two and a 7-day first class rail pass. I can’t wait to blog our adventures when we return!

Winter in NYC this year has been brutal, unfortunately, there were no shoots. I spent most of the time clean eating and strength training thanks to a group workout class with Workout Nirvana that I signed up for through Fitocracy, which is a website I use to track my workouts. I’ve seen amazing improvements in my overall strength (more push-ups!), balance, posture, and, knock on wood, I have not been sick since I started.

I’ve also been learning more recipes

In particular, I’ve now learned how to make Sichuan shui zhu yu (fish boiled in red hot chili soup)

And for special brunch occasions, nothing beats a stack of Nutella crepes

Time for me to run off to the airport! You can probably follow me on Facebook for some mobile photos I’ll be taking. To travel light though, we’re only bringing tablets and mobile phones, and of course, I have my camera. This will be the first long vacation I’m taking without a laptop, it’s so amazing what you can do on a mobile device these days!
