Napa Hot Air Balloon Shoot: Cassandra & Jess

Happy Wednesday!

Today we have something extra pretty for you guys!! While we were out in Napa last month to shoot Cassandra & Jess’s wedding, we also got the incredible opportunity to go along with them (and UP with them) to do a day after shoot when they went hot air ballooning. It was one of the most ahhh-mazing things we’ve ever gotten to do in our lives (even though I totally had visions of plummeting to my death the whole time!) and we owe that entirely to the amazing C&J for making that happen and being so incredibly generous in bringing us along. We have been holding back their wedding from the blog because they are up for publication, but we wanted to go ahead and share this sweet shoot with you now. Enjoy!

    How fun that you got to go along on the hot air balloon ride. You took some really great shots of the happy couple as well as the scenery around them. I enjoyed the video about you both and love your site. Thanks for posting. Experience Hot Air Ballooning across Oz and NZ with FreemanX
