i have been excited about kara + brett’s engagement session for quite sometime. when they contacted us about shooting their intimate wedding in Mendocino next year, i literally squealed with excitement. after chatting with them – there was an instant connection (something that is a HUGE MUST when it comes to choosing a wedding photographer). when we planning the location for their engagement photos, kara instantly informed me that she had “a few spots in mind.” on a cool october afternoon, the three of us hopped in a car and drove to a secluded mountain lake in the sierra nevada’s. to say that the location was beautiful would be an understatement. the aspens interspersed with the pine trees + the lake = dreamy. it was freezing cold that day and kara + brett spent the entire shoot making each other laugh while simultaneously keeping one another warm. their dog babies happily romped around in the bushes, mud, and water while we adventured around this picturesque spot.
kara + brett are so ridiculously in love. watching them interact, joke around, and just be themselves made me smile. these…these are the kind of sessions that i live for. everything was perfect. natural. raw. real.
these two love life and love one another even more. we can’t wait for their big day. it is going to be amazing.
