I met Nick and Maria for the first time at Starbucks by Rancho Codova. They knew me through mutual friends and they said they love my works. After a good chat, the lovely couple booked me for both Engagement session and Wedding day coming up this August.
During the engagement session the weather in Sacramento was extremely hot. We decided to dodge the heat and head to Lake Tahoe. It was a great idea since that matched Nick and Maria’s interest in nature and traveling. We went to Sand Habor for the first stop, unfortunately the parking was full so we had to park on the side road. However, it was such a good idea since we found out a new spot where we can see the crystal water without lots of people in the background. I can say that Nick and Maria made our jobs easy by showing plenty of real love and affection for each other. We had thousands of perfect moments to capture the lovely moments!
On the way to the second location, the famous Eagles Falls, we stumbled upon a burned forest. The leaves were orange similar to the colors of fall, but it was summertime. We decided to stop here for the second scene because of the beautiful backdrop nature provided. During the shoot at Eagles Falls, there was a large log that fell across the busy water stream. There was a strong flow that day which was great for capturing photos along with the gorgeous Emerald Bay island in the background
For the last stop at a wooden factory with the snow mountain in the background, it started to rain, fortunately it stopped before we got there. We decided to choose the formal theme so Nick and Maria changed to their lovely matching outfits. The engagement session was such a wonderful experience for all of us. We’re looking forward to the Wedding day with more lovely moments to capture.
