Japanese newlyweds Kaz and Mariko Yamaguchi decided to put a unique take on honeymoon photos. In an interview with BBC, Kaz mentioned the couple normally doesn't take selfies but felt they should for this trip and brought a drone along.

Instead of just asking random people to take photos of them or only using the popularized selfie stick, the traveling couple used the drone immortalize their 400-day journey.The epic selfie videos begin with the first frame focused on the couple (including those around them) and then zooms out to show the vastness and beauty of the land around them. The awe-inspiring videos of their 45-country trip went viral.

It won't be long before more couples and travelers integrate drone selfies into their trips. Varying businesses can capitalize on this by finding ways to integrate their services or products with the concept. For example, tourism companies can offer to take drone selfies at a fee, while independent film studios can provide editing services.
