design aglow diaries: exploring albuquerque

 

As diehard Breaking Bad fans, Albuquerque has held a certain appeal for the last few years, especially given the show's fascinating cinematography and location choices. We woke to a beautifully sunny day Thursday and fueled up at a nearby Starbucks (immediately labeling ourselves as out-of-towners by sitting outside; we like chilly weather, it's exotic for Floridians). We made several stops at nearby filming locations, seeing Saul Goodman's office (actually a nightclub), Walter White's house, the A1A Carwash, and our favorite of the day, the extremely unusual looking John B. Robert Dam. (Of course we recreated Jesse's iconic extraction scene, with Lena's car filling in as the minivan.) Next up was an enthusiastically recommended activity: the Sandia Tramway. Rising 3,819 feet to the Sandia Crest (at 10,378 feet), this was one of the most impressive tourist attractions we've ever encountered, and by far the highest up we've ever been. (Our tram operator laughed and said to let her know if we sea-level people felt faint from lack of oxygen. We managed to stay conscious.) We had a tasty lunch at the High Finance Restaurant overlooking the city, and made our way back down the mountain, excited and full. (Man, it was cold and windy up there!) A quick jaunt up to Santa Fe for dinner (it started hailing as soon as we arrived) rounded out our day. Next up: drive to Las Vegas for WPPI! xoxo Emily, Pogo Photo Remember to follow the #designaglowdiaries hashtag to see our adventures!

I purchased Design Aglow's engagement guest book design a long time ago and have since created many for my couples to display at their wedding. Of course, they are always packaged in beautiful boxes and bags!

One of the great things about running your own business is that, in theory, us business owners get to “call the shots”. We make all the decisions big and small, such as whether we run our business full or part-time, how and why we set our price points, the products we offer, our ideal clients, the list goes on.

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!
