So after the van conversion, Matt and I went on a trip down the California coast. We were really relaxed with our route and schedule, since we just had to find a space to park every night and our food/shelter was right there. 🙂 It was super fun and I LOVED stopping wherever we wanted to take photos. As a professional Los Angeles lifestyle photographer, I sometimes don’t have a chance to really take pictures of whatever I want. So this was super fun! We also took our two Border Collie dogs, Sam and Sherlock. They traveled so easily, just looking out the windows, chasing the frisbee when we found a park, and just hanging out with us. The beach photos were taken at the Gold Bluffs Beach Campground and the others were taken at various places along the coast.
These two were so much fun! We went up to Idaho City one cold (but sunny) day to do engagement pictures in the mountains. I’m always up to photograph adorable couples in the mountains. As an Idaho engagement photographer, I love using the available nature as a backdrop, and Idaho is the perfect place for it. This was only about an hour outside of Boise. Although the icy roads slightly scared me, and there’s no phone service for a good portion of the trip, it’s all worth it, as you can see from these photos!
On a typical Idaho day in February (i.e. snow one minute, sunshine 5 minutes later), family and friends assembled to witness the union of Kelsey and Jake. This is also the first time I shot with Abby Blossom, another amazing Idaho photographer who is getting into weddings! The day was such an adventure, but all throughout it, Kelsey showed an amazing amount of patience and calm. The weather was absolute haywire. But we got some amazing photos early in the day, and the rest of the day we let the weather run its course!
