My friend Taylor is getting married and she wanted to go look at dresses at this place I know here in Huntington Beach. It’s called Jinny’s Bridal, and we absolutely LOVE this place. It’s kind of a dinky place from the outside, but inside, the service and the quality dresses for the prices are unbeatable. Everytime I bring someone here, they find a dress.

We took the opportunity to have a girls day with mojitos, trying on dresses, taking pics, and just hanging out at my pad. Near sunset, we had this bright idea to drive to Newport to this cliff I use to go to when I was taking intro photography. It had great lighting during sunsets, but we didn’t get there til 8 pm. That gave us half an hour to get up the hill, set up, and shoot! Here are the results.

I told them I wanted a shot of just us looking straight ahead.
They were having none of that. It’s all about the pose!
Girls just wana have fun.

I absolutely adore this blog. Our Labor of Love. They are a husband and wife team of photographers and are based out of Atlanta. They have this quality of image style that’s a bit older, more organic than any other photographer duo I’ve seen yet. It’s their style and I love it. Check em out!

Although the Vegas trip was spontaneous, I still had a list of places to stop by and things to get. I packed my tripod, about 5 outfits for the ONE day we were going to be there, and made a list of where to stop. First: outlets. I don’t even know the name of the outlet, but there was a Guess store there. I specifically went there in search of shoes, and I found them. I put them on, and they were golden [no pun intended]. I walked around the whole store about 3 times before I made the decision to buy them. On top of that, they were on sale.

Second: Primm Valley Casino. We made a stop here to do the shoot. I was planning for more of a desert feel, but when I saw the roller coaster and the bed of red rocks from the parking lot, I decided this would be it. I was also hungry, so we went into the casino to prep for our amateur photoshoot. By the way, it was damn hot.

I was spending the day in Temecula with a few of my closest friends. Halfway there, I realized that my beloved G10 is still sitting in the charger at home, right next to my door. CRAP!! I frantically text Leanne [she has a blog too]to make sure she grabs her G9, and she did! These are a few from that amazing camera and amazing photographers: the Sargeants. I shot a few as well, but since I didn’t have my camera, I got to be a ham more! The weather was INSANELY beautiful that day, overcast and almost rainy at 68 degrees….with spots of sunshine to light up the colors of the sky.

This is, by far, the best pic of the day.
It’s totally posed by Paul, but gotta give him credit. He brings out the love like no other!
I adore this group shot. I feel like I’m on the set of Pushing Daisies.
Another one of my favorites. Leanne took this pic when we were frolicking illegally into the vineyard with wine glasses in hand!
Leanne and Paul do these shots often. They are so adorable.
Too bad I had to ruin it for them. But it was so much fun!
Amazing sunset at Longshadow Winery
We ended the day with presents for Leanne! This trip was for her much belated bday back in May. We also crashed a party at Longshadow, and took over a whole table. We brought picnic baskets filled bread, cheese, pate, and fruit to eat…and opened another few bottles of wine. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful day. Bon Anniversaire Leanne!
