California | Through My iPhone

Last week I had an amazing opportunity to second shoot a wedding in California with my friend Niki! I had never been to California before, and it definitely exceeded my expectations! I knew I was going to love it, but I had no idea I was going to love it as much as I did! And shooting a wedding out there was beyond amazing!

My first flight to Dallas left Boston at 5:40am and thankfully I made it just in time to grab Starbucks before I had to board my flight.

 I met up with Niki in Dallas, and we flew from there to Sacramento together. Niki's muffin she got at the airport ended up getting a little squished on the flight...

Sacramento has a ton of amazing restaurants! There were so many that I wanted to try, but we didn't have time. The first night we went to Cafeteria 15L and it was so good! The atmosphere was great, and the food was really good!

 That dessert? That's a s'mores skillet that Niki got...

 I loved the palm trees lining the main road our hotel was on.

 On day 2 of our trip, we walked around and explored downtown Sacramento! As we were walking around, we cam across the capitol building...and then realized that it was right down the road from our hotel!

Our third day of the trip was the day we got to shoot the wedding! Our day started super we left the hotel at 6:45am. We were pretty excited to be shooting a wedding in California!

 For some of the bride and groom portraits, we got to shoot at a beautiful vineyard. I could not get over how beautiful Northern California is!

 Of course I took a selfie ;)

 The morning after we shot for an almost-15 hour day, I had an early morning flight back to the east coast and then up to Boston. This definitely called for venti skinny vanilla soy latte. 

California was incredible! I cannot wait to share the beautiful wedding with you all! I'm still trying to recover from jet lag so if you see me and I seem a little tired, just bear with me. ;)
