Sometimes, you just gotta get away. Two weeks ago, the stars aligned with work schedules and wedding life and flights to California to visit my vacationing family became available to Brandon and I for a pretty decent deal. We only live once right? How could we say no? So last week we packed our bags and headed to California for a few days to pack in some days of hiking, beaches, In-and-Out Burgers, and an engagement session. Because when you’re on the beaches of California, 55 days away from your own wedding and your second-shooter (who is also my sister) is readily available- you can’t pass it up right?
