Hilary & Kyle // Anniversary Session

Earlier this year, Jessica from Blushing Joy Events and I collaborated to give away a styled photo session! And last month we finally got to meet with our winners - Hilary & Kyle! This sweet couple just celebrated their 4 year wedding anniversary! For their session, we explored a few hidden gems in Oakland including Blue Bottle Coffee and Temescal Alley. I love how simply being together and enjoying life's small pleasures makes them smile! :) Happy Anniversary, Hilary & Kyle!!

Temescal Alley

A couple weeks ago, I went with a few of my friends to Temescal Alley for a photo outing! I first found out about this hidden gem in Oakland through Jensine. :) During her last visit, we stopped by for ice cream (thank-you, Curbside Creamery!) but stayed for the fun shops and their friendly owners. And since then it has become one of my favorite spots to explore on a free day!

If ever you're in town or just looking for something to do, go check out Temescal Alley. You won't regret it. ;) And don't forget to stop by Crimson to see all of their succulents! 

Here are few photos from our outing! :)

I spy with my little eye...some newlyweds! ;)
