We were so privileged to have the opportunity to travel to the Philippines in March! It was an amazing trip. Along with the K&S team, we were able to bring a few models and photographers namely Jamie, Tara, Alyssa, Tess and Ally. It was quite the journey in fact, it took about 41 hours from Utah to arrive at our first Airbnb, Villa On A Cliff! Included in that journey were 4 flights and a 5 hour van ride. Needless to say we were extremely tired by the time we arrived but luckily it was night so we were able to get some good sleep.
Our first stop was in Oslob, Cebu. We stayed at the most amazing Airbnb house with an infinity pool right over the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean! It was breathtaking. While here we visited Kawasan Falls, snorkeled, saw whale sharks, went canyoneering, took a boat tour and of course lounged by the pool. Let's not forget the shooting, we got some amazing shots of the girls looking sooooo good in our 2019 swimwear!
After a couple days in Cebu we headed back to the airport (another cramped 5 hour van ride) and on to Siargao Island. It was a quick flight and another hour long van ride until we go to our next Airbnb house called Isla Marajaw. This island is covered in coconut trees and it was a complete dream! Our house was secluded and right on the beach which created a lot of great photo ops. Some of the highlights from Siargao Island include, sunsets, horseback riding on the beach, never ending palm trees, island hopping to Daku, Guyam & Naked island, local cafes, mingling with the locals and lots and lots of incredible photos.
Sounds like a perfect trip, well it almost was, there were of course a few "bumps" along the way. Aside from the hospital visit for an ear infection, slammed finger in a car, car sickness, laryngitis, sinus infection, lost camera battery, sunburns etc etc... we had an amazing time in the Philippines and would go back in a heartbeat! We hope you enjoy some of the photos we got while there!
