It’s finally warming up in Colorado so I feel that it’s only fitting to blog these San Diego engagement photos from this past February!
Many of you know that I am constantly being bitten by the travel bug. It’s an ever-burning fever and the only prescription is more
cowbell plane tickets, much to the dismay of my bank account.
Which is why I am thankful for budget airlines like Spirit and Frontier. While they definitely have their drawbacks (one leg of my recent cheapie flight to Chicago was cancelled, for example), hopping on a plane for an hour or two for under $75 is so worth it to me. I can definitely forego a free Coke + decent legroom if it means I can photograph an engagement session somewhere entirely brand new.
I love to play around with Google Flights in my spare time, as you can leave the “destination” field blank and scout prices to any city from your departure hub. This way, if you’re feeling the cabin fever and have no particular destination in mind, you can view a full map of the world and all the prices to and from all sorts of cities for your specific travel dates.
The photos below from Geena + Bobby’s session are courtesy of a mindless Google Flights search one day where I found a $61 roundtrip flight to San Diego on Spirit Airlines. I flew out on the earliest flight from Denver in the morning and was able to have breakfast and lunch with a friend (In N Out…mmm), while also having some time to myself on the beach before the session began around sunset. After the shoot was done, I hopped on the later flight home and made it back to Denver on the same day that I left. I love that I didn’t have to pack any change of clothes, toiletries, etc.; light traveling is my jam.
Take a peek through the slideshow of some of my favorite images from Geena + Bobby’s session at Ocean Beach. I am so excited to have another engagement shoot in San Diego coming up soon with a couple who loves to travel as much as I do!
