Tavia and Ruben first contacted us a few months ago, while we were planning this roadtrip. They are both into photography and wedding blogs and have been following us for a while now, so when they saw that we were coming by San Diego, they graciously offered to host us. This sounded a bit strange to some people, but for us, meeting new people was a big part of what this roadtrip is all about, so we took them up on their offer. We really lucked out with these two – they were so hospitable and kind, and soooo much fun! We really hit it off with them and spending 4 days at a stranger’s home wasn’t weird at all!
There are so many obviously beautiful places in San Diego: Balboa park, the many beaches, and Spanish-style architecture, but we opted for something a little more challenging and a lot more meaningful to them by just wandering around their neighborhood.
Here are some of our favorites from the shoot:

While in San Diego, we took the opportunity to meet Emilia and Bill, whose wedding we’ll be photographing next July near Boston. We’ve been in touch with them for about a year now, but had never actually met them in person so we were really happy to get the chance to do so! We met up with them for dinner, drinks, and to listen to their extensive record collection… but of course, we couldn’t resist taking a few photos here and there! We had such a great evening with them, including excellent wine and some of the best oysters we’ve ever tasted!
These are a little different than what you might be used to seeing from us and that’s what made it so much fun for us! Enjoy!
I just love the way they decorated their place. Emilia writes a blog, so it’s no surprise that she’s got great taste!

While in Vegas, Daniel and I had a beautiful room in the “west wing” of the MGM (we were upgraded for no reason, but we were happy to take it!). We couldn’t stop seeing potential photos everywhere so we asked Brianna and Ewan (pronounced YOU-WIN, as we discovered!), fellow married photographers, if they would let us “use them” for a mini-session. It was our second shoot in a row where our subjects were fellow wedding photographers and I have to say, it is a little intimidating, but a whole lot of fun!
Here are a few:

As you might know by now, we’re off on our roadtrip at the moment, but it hasn’t been all fun and games! We’ve been doing a little work here and there too. Well actually, the photoshoot we did with Kristiaan and Lionel was a whole lot of fun so I guess we’re not entitled to complain now, are we?
Photographing in Washington, DC was a whole new experience for us and the beautiful train station was the perfect setting for their vintage-themed engagement session. They were amazing subjects to photograph and i think that the fact that they are wedding photographers too might have something to do with it!
Kristiaan and Lionel are getting married in Mexico next November and we can’t freaking wait! In the meantime, here are a few shots we managed to edit on our laptop while on the road:

2 weeks ago, we took off on a 2 month road trip across the USA. We have been trying our best to stay on top of our emails, but if you haven’t heard back from us yet, we’ll get in touch very soon!
In the meantime, here a few photos from the trip, and you can follow us on our roadtrip blog HERE: http://davinaplusdaniel.com/roadtrip
