California Adventure

It’s about time that I finally share my adventure out west. It only happened, like, 4 months ago! hahaha. I’m not that far behind. KIDDING! But for real, I’m excited to finally be sharing my photos from California! I am a Cali girl at heart and LOVE having an reason to go out there! 

I am so thankful I had the opportunity to travel to San Francisco for an engagement session AND San Diego for an engagement session and wedding! GAH! What a dream come true!

I had never been to San Fran before, so it was an exciting treat! It was a quick, 24-hour trip, but so fun! I was a little bummed with the fog and the fact that I couldn’t actually see the Golden Gate Bridge while I was there, but I still got to experience some other fun aspects of the city during my short trip! I would definitely love to come back here one day and do some more exploring and get to know this city more! 

And we all know how much I LOVE San Diego! If I could live anywhere else in the world, I think it’d be in San Diego. It’s always sunny and happy there (unless you piss off a meter maid;). While I was traveling by myself, it was still so much fun! I loved exploring different places around the city, watching the sun set, and eating the best fish tacos EVER! When I was there, I had a day between the engagement session and wedding. I spent the whole day sight seeing and taking photos! It was so good for the soul! I would love to go back again and bring Justin with me! I still talked on the phone with him a lot and even FaceTimed him during the sunset and sea lions! It was like he was there! 😉 

Welp, here’s a little throwback to my California adventure! I really hope we can go back and visit again soon! I sure do love that place! Maybe next time I can venture to Santa Barbara or Los Angeles too! 😉

How crazy is it that one side of the town could be so clear and sunny and the other was overcome with fog?!

THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!! I have to believe that behind all that fog, there was in fact, the famous bridge. Or was it? #illuminati 😉

And this was the spot where I climbed on the rocks to get a better shot and slipped. Yup! I’m that tourist whole slipped and fell on the rocks. Thankfully I just split my toe open, but I saved my camera gear and that’s all that mattered! 😉

And this is WHY I love La Jolla Cove!!! I could have stayed there all day! I visited twice during my visit! The seals and sea lions are the cutest!
