started last year. Michael was only able to stay at WPPI for a mere 48 hours last year and we knew that next year we wanted it to be different. Buddy and Jill stayed out west after WPPI last year and had a little vaca in the desert! They went exploring and their video convinced us that we needed to have a vacation out west in 2013!! So we did just that! Back in the fall we reserved a motorhome and Michael started planning out trip to the California coastline. We knew it was going to be fun but we had no idea how much AMAZING-NESS we would find on our journey!!
So our journey began in Vegas. We checked out of our hotel and said goodbye to nice showers and comfy beds for the next 5 days. We picked up our rig on Thursday morning and the adventure began! Michael and Buddy had been watching RV videos all week on youtube and so I surprisingly felt somewhat confident that we were going to be ok. Jill and I decided at the very beginning of the trip that we would be having no part in the “tank dumping” process. GROSS! The boys did a great job taking care of all of that… it was entertaining, but they got it done.
So we left Vegas and started making our trek across the desert! Jill and I found our spots in the back of the RV and I was quickly reminded of why I love traveling this way! We had a big window with a view and we got to spread out with our laptops. We did some last minute business checkups before we lost signal and then we just enjoyed the scenes of the desert that were passing by! Buddy and Michael drove… for some reason they didn’t feel comfortable with us driving… I have no idea why. :) There are some STRANGE things in the desert… this road sign being one of them. After our first Walmart stop, we were finishing our drive to Bakersfield and the light was golden… so of course, we made our first “Portrait Pitstop”!
This session took place just 45 minutes before their welcome dinner the night before their big day! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!
Our life has been a whirlwind in the best kind of way this summer! Life sure looks a lot different than it did just a few years ago and it’s about to change AGAIN!
If you’ve ever been a member of KJ All Access, you know that it’s been an evolution since the beginning! Over 4 years of wedding content, engagement sessions, family sessions and so much more!
When you’re sorting 5,000+ photos after each wedding, staying organized is a huge priority!
We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
Have you had a troublesome groom in the past? They don’t cooperate with the poses and just want to get back to the party?
