SHANNON & GEORGE / OUT OF THE OFFICE

chileno valley ranch weddingSara and I are headed to New York tonight for a wedding in Brooklyn this weekend. Pretty fired up about that. This will be my first time to NYC, so I don’t have an image of an epic Manhattan skyline or a taxi or a Ninja Turtle to share, but I do have a picture of Shannon and George cruising around in the hills at Chileno Valley Ranch from earlier this month. So there’s that. Have a good week/end.

Chileno Valley Ranch, Petaluma, CA

Mark Tierney - I can’t wait to see the New York wedding Hugh. I went in March for the first time, I would love to shoot a wedding there.

Becca - So good, Hugh! I always get excited when I see you’ve posted.
