I walked out of the airport terminal and a warm breeze gently hugged my face. I looked up and there were palm trees surrounding me and not a single cloud in the sky! Our trip to California started out in the most perfect way and I have a plethora of photos to share with you from our adventure, #passporttothepacific. To start us off, I figured I’d share some of our first day of the trip where we drove from Long Beach to Santa Barbara. It was a wild ride, driving through the mountains because part of Pacific Coast Highway was closed, but when we finally reached our destination it was so good to be back in Santa Barbara. I had forgotten how the air, as Caitlin would explain, smells like springtime and it’s the perfect tie between mountainous hills and perfect beach. While we were in town, we had the chance to photograph three gorgeous models in Enaura bridal gowns, to throw together a sweet styled shoot, and got the chance to meet up with some of sweet friends, Andrew, David, and Josh. I alway treasure my time spent with industry friends who pour into other people! Anyways, enough of my babbling! Enjoy a few favorites from our time in Long Beach and Santa Barbara!
