Happy Thanksgiving!

This post is a bit longer than normal. I had the privelge of taking my best friend and her husband's pictures yesterday. When Stacy asked me to do their Christmas pictures I was so excited! She wanted to go to Julian to take them for more of a fall feel. Since Julian is only about an hour away from San Diego, it was perfect.
We drove up to the town and tried to find some cool places to shoot. We stumbled across this winery that was closed and took advantage of the scernary.



-I have seen this shot done by some well known photographers. I wanted to give it a try :)





-The jump shot and the landing shot.This was so fun



-There was an old Dodge on the winery. It made for some cool shots



After the winery, we headed into Julian for some lunch and some more shots. These are taken around the town.





-I love the color in this last shot!

Words cannot express what these two mean to me. I love them dearly and can't imagine my live without them. Thank you for trusting me enough to take your pictures! Love you both

Hi Melissa!
Thanks for stopping by my blog... you're in San Diego too? We should definitely meet up sometime! Oh my gosh, and I have to tell you- I just checked out your website, and I laughed when I read your bio, about how you hate cheese but love pizza... I'm the same way! Never met anyone else with that "quirk"... my friends & family think I'm so weird! :) Anyway, have a great weekend! Hope to meet you sometime soon.
