Travel Thursday | California Big Sur + Yosemite Trip Previews

Travel

Going two for two on Thursday blogging!! Sorry, it’s time to celebrate the small things around here :) This will just be a short post to recap what I’ve been up to this week and why this blog is featuring “filler” content with three days of the same wedding. Thanks for sticking with the blog on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday where we recapped the three day Indian wedding of Amir and Nasrine. Catch up with Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 by clicking on the highlighted text for each day.

This week I have been in California doing some fine art landscape photography and time lapse in Big Sur and Yosemite National Park. A nice break from shooting brides and grooms and to force my mind to work in slightly different ways and think more about lines, shapes, textures… all those other aspects of photography that are working in my subconscious mind during weddings. I’m thinking about turning this Thursday spot on the blog into a permanent “Travel Thursday” because I could craft a blog post about each one of the locations I visited on these 5 days in Cali! So now we have Wedding Monday, Technical Tuesday, Anything Goes Wednesday, Travel Thursday, and Sneak Peek Friday? Is that interesting to anyone else or should we focus more on weddings besides just on Monday and Friday? Maybe turn the Wednesday or Tuesday spot into something related to weddings in Atlanta?

For now, I want to just tease you with a couple of quick photos from this trip that were taken with the iPhone, yes my trusty iPhone 4 that never leaves my side. Enjoy a few more previews of the views I was getting while traveling for a few days in California!

2012: Photography Year in Review – Engagement, Bridal, Travel, Landscape, etc!
Thanks for viewing yesterday's year-end wrap up post where I chose a bunch of my favorite wedding photographs from the year's 37 weddings. However, I of course didn't photograph ONLY weddings, I had a number of engagement sessions, bridal sessions, portrait sessions... and of course a BUNCH of photos of our son, Miles! So, rather than devote one blog post solely to engagement photos and one post solely to bridal photos, here is one giant "Miscellaneous" blog post for anything that is not a wedding photograph! To see a sampling of the 2012 wedding photography year in review click this link or scroll down on the blog =). And now, in no particul ...

Rimmy & Karandeep | California Sikh Indian Wedding at Khalsa Care Foundation and Hilton Woodland Hills
With all of these video vlog posts lately, it was high time to post some actual wedding photos on the blog!! Doing these behind the scenes wedding vlogs are just so quick and easy compared to even a blog post, haha! Looking back through the wedding photography archives for what I need to post next, I have so many weddings from the Summer of 2016 that haven't been posted on the blog it's a little intimidating, but we need to get this wedding photography blog show on the road! Summer '16 was a great wedding season with us, tons of Indian weddings all over, and that "all over" part had a lot to do with us jumping over to the West Coast for Rimmy ...

Fall Roadtrip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Here is a quick vacation blog post as a break from all of the weddings and engagements I have been posting lately. Well, of course with us, the reason for the travel was a wedding itself. Last Wednesday I had a Pakistani wedding up in Kingsport, Tennessee at the Meadowview Marriott so Betty and Miles came with me for a quick overnight vacation. We drove up to Johnson City/Kingsport on Wednesday in time for the wedding and then took a leisurely route through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the way back. We really wanted to hit the Blue Ridge Parkway but maybe next time, or next year when Miles is a bit older as well. We could only s ...
