What Inspires Me | California Part 2

DSC_0043This weather we are experiencing in Virginia reminds me so much of our honeymoon. This time of year will always be so special to us, because this time last year we were ALMOST married! I'm so excited to have finally finished our honeymoon/California pictures! This last weekend I did my first wedding with Jessica Mae and had SO much fun!! I was beside myself all day with excitement and joy for the couple. How cool to be around people on one of the happiest days of their life all the time! And to be reminded all the time about our own wedding and commitment to each other! Best job EVER!! It really is true that when you love what you do, it doesn't feel like work AT ALL. Wedding season has begun, and I am so excited for all of you brides!!!

These are the last of the pictures, and now we need to go back. Seriously, it was so beautiful...I don't think pictures can even do it justice! This was also pre-tripod...so we had to find creative ways to take pictures of ourselves...But hey, it can be done! So in order of the pictures and our trip...Coastal Highway 1, Hearst Castle , Paso Robles, Yosemite, Sacramento, Davis...

Oops! Flyaway hair!


See what I mean?? Breathtaking.



These people were psycho. Not only was it FREEZING all along the coast...but the water was barely above freezing! Also, this picture on the right is a good example of how I felt like we stepped back in time to the 70's while we were there. Don't ask why, it just did!


I took this one for my mom. One of the last things she said to us was to be careful of the earthquakes!
