RV Vaca 2013

  • The Cali Coast | Monterey, Big Sur, & Santa Barbara

previously, we tried to have a “go with the flow” attitude on our RV adventure out west! It served us well…. especially on night 4! We were headed to Monterey with when Jill and Michael randomly found a campground that they wanted to try out. It wasn’t our original plan but we decided to go for it. It was advertised as being close to “The Dunes”. We had no idea what that meant or what it was going to look like but the campground was well kept and they had SHOWERS so we pulled in and hooked everything up for the night.

  • Salisbury Country Club Engagement | Richmond Wedding Photographer

winter months for a photographer can be dreadful at times. It’s cold, and dark and for people like me who love COLOR, it can seem somewhat lifeless. I love winter but when it comes to photography, it’s not my favorite season. Well, I’m happy to announce that those days are over for 2013! Sure, it’s still chilly and the temperature for VA has not been normal for late March however, the grass is beginning to turn green and slowly but surely, spring is starting to show through!! I noticed this last weekend while I was shooting Mike and Kristin’s eshoot on the Southside of Richmond. This was my first 2013

RV Vaca 2013

  • San Francisco

our whole trip, we tried to find a good balance between a “Planned/Carefree” mindset. We knew our timeframe for each stop and we also knew the BIG stuff we wanted to see, but we showed up to different locations without a set PLAN as to what we would be doing. For example, as we approached the city of San Francisco, Michael was driving and I heard them mention that they wanted to rent scooters for the next day to tour the city. Jill immediately got on her phone and looked up reviews for San Fran scooter rentals…. we quickly dismissed that idea.
