Amber + Camden's Mountaintop Spring Engagement Session

_F5A8783.jpg

When we were trying to choose which location to choose Amber and Camden's engagement session, I gave them probablyyyy a few too many options. I have lots of places on my "dream shoot" list (ahem, death valley) and so I had given them several choices to see which fit them best. They landed on the mountains; a couple after my own heart. Don't get me wrong, I love the ocean, but the mountains are my *jam.*

We started the session with a beer and ended it with one of the best sunsets I've seen this year. The Eastern Sierras have a certain magic that is beautiful all year round, and I was so glad that Amber and Camden trusted my vision for their adventurous mountain-y engagement sesh. <3

Engagement Session: Sarah and Dan

Engagement Session: Sarah and Dan

According to Dan, the proposal was code named "Operation Sea Otter," where he asked Sarah to marry him right by the water at Moonstone Beach. They both share a love of otters and, just as Dan was about to get on one knee, they looked out on the water and saw a pair of otters. No joke. If that doesn't melt your heart, folks, I don't know what will.

When Sarah, Dan, and I were discussing the details of their engagement session, they only had one request; they wanted their shoot to be where Dan had proposed. We picked the date (which was several months out) and really hadn't give weather a second thought. California usually has pretty fantastic weather, even in the winter.

Well, fast forward to February and we had the storm of the century. on our hands. Luckily, the time of day that we scheduled our shoot, there was a break in the torrential downpour which allowed for the most stunning backdrop to their photos. The combination of the ocean and green, rolling hills is where it's at.

I'm not sure if I have ever laughed so much during an engagement session. Honestly. Their love is both evident and contagious. Thank you, Dan and Sarah, for choosing me to photograph such a special day. You guys rock.

These two are getting married this June and I could not be more thrilled.  XOXO
