Couple uses drone on honeymoon to get magnificent shots

The Daily Catch - published on 12/08/16

Kaz Yamaguchi married his beloved Mariko and the couple set out on a 400-day-long honeymoon adventure across 48 countries. After seeing some drone footage online, Kaz brought one with him to better capture their experiences, the resulting video shows a honeymoon to die for:

‘When we were planning our honeymoon trip, we saw some aerial footage taken by a drone on YouTube. We thought we could mix this with selfies and make it more epic,’ Mr Yamaguchi, who had no background in blogging or filming before the trip, told Daily Mail. ‘I practiced twice for a few minutes in Japan, the third time was in Singapore. Since then, we’ve been shooting with it as much as we can.’ The couple have documented their adventures in several stunning locations – from posing on the Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana and in front of the hot air balloons at Cappadocia in Turkey, to dancing with locals in Ethiopia and enjoying the snowy mountains in Tromso, Norway.

Congratulations to Kaz and Mariko, we wish them all the luck on their life together and thank them for sharing their marvelous videos with the world!
