So, I had a week and a half off of work recently and had a trip planned to Orange County. It ended up having to be rescheduled, so I was bummed, but still wanted to take advantage of this time off.
Coincidentally, my friend Cindy ( www.cindyfrey.com ) from Belgium, was going to be in San Diego for a photoshoot the following weekend and asked me if I wanted to come down.. Of course I was super excited to have a second shot at an actual holiday, haha. After looking for a flight down and only finding a 337 dollar ticket as my best price, I decided to drive... This ended up being a great decision as I made it there in 7.5 hours! I left at 4am on Thursday the 4th, it was actually really easy..
We had an amazing time photo geeking out and poking around San Diego. It was her first time there, so it was fun that I was able to show here around..
She did a shoot for As I Lay Dying. We made a new friend in Jon Upson (a good friend of the bands) http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonnyups/
And I got to meet another great photographer, Greg Ramirez http://www.ramirezphotos.com/
I took some behind the scenes shots, it was a great weekend. Enjoy!
