My photography is taken from my many adventures around the globe while working and travelling. My photography reflects the culture, architecture, landscape, wildlife, and people of the countries. Rich and vibrant colours are vivid and texture abounds throughout my photos. Follow me as I will be traveling the world to see as many of the 193 countries as possible. I will also be scuba diving in some of the most beautiful locations and will be sharing my gopro videos.
With my love of design and stationery, I spent a few years designing wedding stationery and accessories that focused on travel destination and beach weddings. I took a little break during COVID and while I moved to a different city. During my travels, I will be designing some fresh new invitations so follow Wanderlush Designs to see my latest designs coming soon!

LATEST TRAVEL ADVENTURES
Here are some of my favourite photos of my six week travel through Egypt, Kenya and Tanzania. I spent 15 days on an African Safari through Kenya and Tanzania, 8 day tour through from Aswan to Cairo in Egypt and a week on the beautiful island of Tanzania. This was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Check out my Latest Adventures blog to see a variety of photos and stories of my experience.
SCUBA DIVING IN THE RED SEA
I did four amazing dives in Hurghada, Egypt. The first dive was a shore dive right in front of the diving center called "House Reef" and the second dive was a boat dive approximately 10 minutes offshore called "Gota Abu Makadi". These 2 dives featured a beautiful hardcoral garden with many large and low coral formations, plenty of schools of fish, a big pinnacle that almost touches the surface, a huge blue spotted stingray swimming underneath me, a crocodile fish hidden in the sand, lots of lion fish, and a huge moray eel.
The third and fourth dives were during an all day boat dive with Blue Paradise Diving Center from Hurghada to the Giftun Island National Park. There are some picturesque coral formations, a wonderful sloping coral garden surrounded by a couple of very fine pinnacles standing on a 12 metre deep sandy bottom. On these two dives, I saw 2 huge moral eels in the same hole! Wow, that was cool! I also saw blue spotted stingrays, crocodile fish, napoleon fish, lion fish, flute fish, and lots of little tropical fish. The coral pinnacles were amazing and they had so much life around them.

Customized Tropical Beach Invitation and RSVP Suites:
"Sandra has done it again! Working with a loose and somewhat contradictory theme of vibrant tropical, with some shells and starfish, the designs created by Sandra for our wedding invitation suite came out better than I could ever imagine. Her creativity, attention to detail and design skills are incredible. I will be using Sandra for all stationary and signage for this and future events. I recommend you do the same!"
