San Fransisco March 2015

Last week I got to spend 1 day in San Fransisco and I made the MOST of it! I was in town for a photography workshop, and I went a day early just to check things out since the last time we went to the city, we were to tired to do anything.

Since I was in the Cali alone this time, I chose to do a tour through Vantigo, a company that gives small scale tours via a Volkswagon bus. What could be more fun? It was a PERFECT was to see a ton of sights that I wanted to see, while avoiding that feeling of being “cattle” and barked at through a megaphone.  After the tour I went the Walt Disney Family Museum, Lucas Films Headquarters, and the Castro to see where Harvey Milk’s camera store was back in the day. My phone died right when I parked in the Castro and I was forced to ask for help, which I always actually enjoyed. I met a couple of guys who gave me directions to where I was having dinner AND I met another couple who had been to Maine. “Love your state. Hate your governor.” Good times. It’s funny how having your phone die can get you out of your comfort zone, (my favorite place to try and leave). I had dinner with a friend I had not seen in 8 years!! It’s always such a treat to see old friends. We had to tell long stories to eachother to get caught up and I loved every second of it.

A few take-aways from the day in San Fran:

The hills are absolutely no joke. Get ready for a workout OR avoid it completely and take a tour.

The Golden Gate Bridge is just as cool as you think it is.

Head to Twin Peaks for an incredible view of the whole city. See if you can spot the Castro district in the first photo.

After two trips, I still don’t really see why you would spend a ton of time at Fisherman’s Wharf. Perhaps it’s because I live near a pretty harbor, or that I’m not that crazy about shopping at the same stores I can shop at everywhere, but I just dont really get it.

The address of Harvey Milks old Camera Store is 575 Castro Street. Go there. Now its this site of the Human Rights Campaign Store, which is fitting.

Talk to people while you are there! I met a lot of nice folks.

Life Lately List: March 9, 2015

Happy March! Did you all remember to switch your clocks if your in the Daylight Savings Time Zone? I had to catch a flight on Sunday. Remind me never to book a flight the day of Daylight Savings Time. I made it with no problem but I was kind worried all night long that we didn’t plan it correctly.

Little updates:

  • We are still working on the trailer. This past weekend was a benchmark day because we were able to move furniture back into the bedroom and sleep in a bed, rather than on the floor. Im sure you can imagine the relief.
  • We are working on a Client Magazine, jam packed with our info we think you need for the best wedding photography planned wedding day. Im pretty excited since Ive been wanting to make this happen for years!
  • It’s been REALLY cold at the Outer Banks. I think it might even be the coldest winter they have had in years. Its a good thing we have a few Maine winters in our blood to toughen us up.
  • I forgot about NC winters though, they are very indecisive. Its goes from 25 degrees to 70 in the span of 24 hours. One day last week it was warm enough to wear a tank top, so I painted our porch ceiling a sweet light blue, on par with the southern tradition of blue ceilings. I love it so much!
  • Next month we go to Iceland. That is a crazy sentence to write. I am so stoked!

Featured: Maine Magazine Wedding Issue 2015

We are really proud that two of our weddings last year were featured in Maine Magazine’s Wedding Issue this month. Being featured in print is so satisfying and feels like we really are doing good work that people enjoy. As artists thats all we can ask for. Liz and Chip’s Blueberry fields soiree, and Emily and Kate’s backyard bash were coincidentally both held on the same little lake in East Orland, Maine. Maybe we should go take a dip in it for good luck for next years issue. We will wait until summer of course.
