We get lots of questions about our favorite travel items, especially about our cameras. So we’ve decided to share some of our favorites here.

Photography Favorites

We like to think that our food photos are top quality solely based on our years of practice and innate creativity, but we know that it’s also important to have the right equipment.

Canon 70D

We recently upgraded to this DSLR, and we’re loving the camera so far.  We can use it to shoot great close-up food photos as well as photos of scenery and people. This camera also has awesome video capabilities which we are excited to explore.

Lowepro Passport Sling

This bag allows us to securely carry the DSLR camera and two lenses plus some small personal items, all without looking or feeling like we’re carrying a suitcase.


Canon S100

The best parts of the Canon S100 is its small size and versatility. Sometimes it’s great to just toss the point & shoot camera into a bag or pocket and go. There are loads of manual settings too.


Getting out of Auto

We are not trained photographers, but we like to take excellent photos. This e-book is helping us to make the transition from the point & shoot camera to the DSLR. Chock full of information, this book is written in a way that’s easy for real people (like us) to understand.

Luggage Favorites

There’s not much worse than traveling with the wrong luggage. Not only can it be physically uncomfortable, but it can also cause problems due to over/under packing or damaged items. That’s why it’s important to find the right size and to pay for quality.

Briggs & Riley International Carry-On Spinner

The bag is sleek, durable and has a compartment large enough to hold a laptop. Designed to fit in any airplane overhead compartment, this bag is destined to log a lot of miles.


Belle Hop Complete Travel Bag

Mindi loves this bag for roaming around a city or while traveling. The bag has lots of compartments as well as a pocket that is the perfect size for an iPad. As a versatility bonus, the bag can be worn over the shoulder or converted to a backpack.
