the best job…

IMG_3837Last month I got to work at two weddings in the Bay Area with the best caterers. My main job once dinner rolled around was serving tables, but before that time, I was asked to photograph appetizers and as many other dishes as possible.

Warm weather + sunshine is a combination I can never resist, so Meegan and I met up for a photo adventure on Saturday. That post will be coming up this week! :)

01 / I always have too many tabs open. At least three different things were happening in that photo.
02 / Photo adventure! Exploring on foot! A wonderful friend! My favorite things :)
03 / Sunday was the opposite of Saturday weather-wise, which called for baking.
