we have started a tradition in our home of throwing a big solstice potluck party to celebrate that the darkest days are behind us. it feels really nice to fill our home with good friends, good food and some winter cheer.
I recently travelled to California to photograph an engagement session and decided to make a road trip out of it with my best gal, Marla. You know you are the best of friends when you travel over 5,400 km in 10 days and still want to hang out. We didn't quite experience sunny California as we traveled the week of El Niño but the beauty of the coast is undeniable regardless of the weather. This is a collection of photographs taken throughout our drive in Washington, Oregon and California.
