During the first week of February, I embarked on my first travel trip that was solely centered around my business. I flew to San Diego by myself and I explored southern California for almost a week photographing the most incredible couples in love. Before I left to head back to New York, I hopped on a plane to San Francisco, spent the morning searching for the famous sea lions at Pier 39, and then met up with one of my absolute favorite photography inspirations, you may know her as Anna Elizabeth Photo, for a one-on-one mentorship day.
Anna and I hung out all afternoon in a local coffee shop. I spent hours absorbing all of the incredible knowledge that she was sharing with me that was personalized around my goals for my wedding photography business. The time absolutely literally flew by.
It was then time for us to head to Marshall’s Beach and meet up the cutest couple for a sunset shoot! Jenn and Frank’s love is undeniable. These two love to adventure and try new things together, which was perfect for our shoot because they had never been to this spot before! The four of us hiked down to the prettiest secluded beach overlooking San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge. We splashed around in the ocean, and watched the prettiest cotton candy sunset over the bay.
I had the absolute best time learning and growing from Anna, while also capturing the sweetest moments between these two love birds. Afterward, Anna and I headed back to a coffee shop to relive the night and edit together. My trip to California completely blew my expectations out of the water. I had never been before, and I can absolutely say that I left a little piece of my heart there. My little detour to San Francisco was the best way to end my perfect trip. I am so thankful to Anna, Jenn, and Frank for making this day so incredible. I already cannot wait to go back!
