Sneak Peek - San Francisco Engagement

Last week's engagement shoot with Thea and Matt was amazing!  We had wonderful light, great locations, and Thea and Matt were so fun to work with!  I am positively in love with Thea and Matt's images, so here's a sneak peek from their shoot....

Happy Monday!

Adventure Camera - Biking Route 1

With our metric century through Davis completed last month, we've been looking for nice, long, hilly rides in the Bay Area and beyond to train for our next great biking adventure-- the Hell's Gate Hundred.  Whereas our ride from Davis to Winters was, well, pretty much flat, Hell's Gate will be anything but.  With a 20-mile climb up and over the 4300-foot Daylight Pass in Death Valley, we'll need some serious hill training.  So, with that in mind, we headed down to Big Sur to ride the 26-mile section of Route 1 between Big Sur and Lucia.  Hills galore, great scenery, and courteous drivers made for a wonderful out-and-back ride, and by mid-morning we were joined by many other friendly road bikers.

Our turn-around point was Lime Kiln State Park.  Situated in a canyon, the park's geography ranges from rocky beaches to brushy peaks high above the ocean's waves.  There's a small campground reaching back from the beach, and the campground host is one of the nicest people we've met.  Incidentally, he's just created a bike-and-hike campsite for those biking or backpacking along the coast.  It's a nice little site with an ocean view and a bench.  It's a great place to stay if you're in the area on foot or two wheels.

Happy Monday!

Sneak Peek - Ralston Hall Mansion Wedding

It's been a very busy week, so I've taken a few days off blogging (sorry!)... However, I'm working on Wendy and Rob's wedding images, and I can't help but share one!  They were married last month at the gorgeous Ralston Hall Mansion in a beautiful ceremony and reception.  Here's a sneak peek from their first look.... Love!

Happy Thursday!
