Summer Road Trip West

James and I were ecstatic when our friends, Rebekah and Dave, asked us to photograph their wedding in Portland this summer (photos coming soon!). Since July is the slowest time of year for us in Texas, we decided to take a month off and make a road trip out of it. The bulk of our time was spent in California and Oregon with a few stops in the desert along the way. We covered 6,000 miles and it’s only now when I sit back and look through these photographs that I am able to really take it all in. We experienced everything from complete isolation in the desert to snow capped mountains, hot springs, mountain roads, the Pacific Coast, Portland, San Francison, LA and even a wild fire in Palm Springs. If you ever have the opportunity I highly recommend the trip. I’ve spent a lot of time on the west coast but never really explored the eastern Sierras. It’s absolutely mind blowing. Here’s a culmination of film + DSLR + iphone photos from our trip.
