Sky Lanterns

Posted by Ryan Hammond (Tucson, United States) on 3 November 2017 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I was at a lantern festival called Rise that was 60 miles outside of Las Vegas. Incredible experience watching thousands of people release these bio-degradable paper lanterns into the night.

Thanks for checking out my blog. You can see more of my photos at or my wedding photography at
