California Coastal Inspiration



Filed in:


Clearly I really need to catch up on blogging, seeing as this post is from our California coastal trip back in January! This shoot was the first of our trip and it was so last minute and crazy, but it ended up looking perfect! I reached out to my old dance friend, Meggie (the curly haired blonde!) to see if her and some actor friends might want to drive up to Santa Barbara from LA to model for us. Not only did these three agree and drive all the way from LA, but our makeup artist, Lindsey Jones, drove all the way up San Diego to work on the shoot with us!

After the crazy few hours of getting everything together (including Lauren + I running into World Market, buying $150 worth of plates and table setting things, then returning it a few hours later, haha), we were able to throw together one of my favorite bridal shoots, ever! Thank you so much to everyone involved, you all are amazing!

    I had no idea how spontaneous this shoot was or that these girls weren’t professional models! That’s so cool! These are GORGEOUS Caitlin! It’s so fun seeing your spin on the shoot :)
