We recently took a trip to California, our first real vacation in 6 years! We are definitely not going that long without a real vacation again. Of course we seem to have a hard time relaxing no matter where we go, so we drove about 1500 miles and saw probably half of California. We started in LA, stayed a night in San Luis Obispo, drove up the coast and saw the elephant seals and Big Sur, stayed in San Francisco area 2 nights, went to Nappa Valley and Sonoma for a day, then drove out through Fresno and stopped near the Sequoia Forest, spent 2 nights in Palm Springs area and did an amazing photo shoot in the desert, saw Joshua Tree National Park for like 2 hours, then ended our last night in LA with a dinner cooked by a friend who is a chef to hollywood stars. WHEW! A bit crazy, right? We got some gorgeous photos and saw some breathtaking things though and have such a huge appreciation for how gorgeous California is. Can’t wait to go back!
These photos were all taken with film and there will be another post with even more goodies shot in digital. If you’re getting married in California, we are adding that to our list of states to shoot in so get in touch!
