I’ve gotten really lucky in my adventures as a photographer. I get opportunities to shoot with crazy talented photographers in awesome places all the time, and I love it. Tommy Von Huynh is a photographer in California and also happens to be a very good friend of mine. He flew me out to California in September to shoot a double wedding weekend with him. Since I’m going to school full-time, I had to fly in on a Thursday night after class, and we drove to Bakersfield on Friday. We got to stop in Long BEach as well as Los Angeles to check out the Hard Rock Cafe and meet up for dinner with a friend of mine from high school. On Saturday morning, we met Karli at the coolest salon I’ve ever been to, Curl Up and Dye. What a welcoming place it was. We shared laughs, stories and excited butterflies together. Later that day, Karli and Michael were married under a tree in their front yard. The California light was just perfect, and we felt like welcomed guests the entire day. It was an exhausting weekend, but absolutely worth it!
