At the end of February I joined a group of photographers at a photography retreat called Field Trip just outside Santa Barbra at El Captain Canyon. Days before the retreat began I decided I would fly to Los Angeles and visit some of my close friends out there. Man. It was my first trip to the west coast. I fell in love with the California sun and the Pacific Ocean. I even fell in love with travel photography. I travelled in my early-mid teen years often with my family but I never really was a traveller. Just never had an opportunity just a few road trips back and forth from Florida to Chicago with some weddings in between along the east coast. This year all of that changes. This year my photography already has taken me to California and Oregon. It will be taking me to Europe and across the country to Georgia, Florida, Wisconsin, back to Oregon, Washington and hopefully I’ll be taking a cross country road trip at the end of the year with several other amazing photographers. I am so thankful for my job, the amazing people it allows me to meet and bring in to my life. I am blessed by the travel I get to do.
With that said, if you are a bride or just a person who doesn’t live in Chicago and would like me to capture your memories, your photographs; ask me. No amount of land or water can honestly stop me from doing that and I’ll make it work. I love my job and even more I love capturing memories.
Los Angeles and Malibu were incredible. I defiantly left a piece of my creative being in Malibu. I would love to do an actual shoot there some day and even a wedding. El Matador Beach was super popular amongst creatives. We watching a huge filming production when we first arrived and for the few hours we were there we came across over a dozen other photographers. I couldn’t blame them. The place was breathtaking.
Here is just a series of photographs from Los Angeles and Malibu on my first day in California. :]
