I am so excited to be able to photograph the wedding of Chelsie and Ross this coming weekend. Their engagement session was so much fun! We hiked an easy trail in Coloma down to the American River. The trail is called Dave Moore Nature Trail. Since they are backpackers and lovers of the outdoors (just like me) I knew they would be down for a place like this. It’s one of my favorite trails because it’s short, but it has some amazing natural features like the beautiful tree seen below. I also love the wide variety of photo opportunities. It also has a couple of beautiful beach areas that are great for more intimate moments. This is the kind of place I love finding for couples. It’s something new, adventurous, intimate and all their own.
These two are amazing together! You can tell they have so much love each other. They were engaged on a hike so it's only fitting that this is the kind of engagement session they should do. Like many couples these days they met on a dating website and I think it was love at first site. They love wine so we had a little while shooting. I mean who doesn't love to relax with a glass of wine by the water? I think the only thing that would have made this shoot more perfect are their dogs. I wish we could have incorporated them in some way.
