We love you Liz & Collin! But really…after our day-long styled shoot with Liz and Collin at a Carmel Chateau and down in Big Sur, the whole team simply couldn’t stop talking about how we all just wanted to be friends with these two!

For those who haven’t followed along in recent blog posts, Karen from KMC Destinations and I teamed up to go shoot in some of our dream locations out on the west coast. Winter season for weddings in the Midwest is really slow, so it always lends itself well to crafting up personal shoots and getting re-energized creatively as we gear up for the big spring season. So, I reached out to Liz, a fellow photographer out in San Jose, to see if she’d be down for swapping places and being in front of the camera for once! Needless to say, she and Collin rocked it and were simply the sweetest, most flexible, down-to-earth couple that left us all dreaming of moving to San Francisco so we could all hang out more!

Thank you both for coming along on this crazy road trip adventure! Can’t wait to hang out for real next time I’m in the area!
