Mosquito Bridge Engagement | Ashely and August

When Ashley and August told me that wanted to go rappelling for their engagement session, I was THRILLED. I love it when couples incorporate activities or places that are special to them into their photo shoot; it just gives the images that extra sense of history. And so we headed out on what was a crisp fall day in Placerville for a Mosquito Bridge engagement adventure!

August comes from a long line of climbers and passed on his love of the sport to his future wifey. Photographing the two of them descend the side of a cliff under a bridge down to the river was magical. Climbing up out of the ravine when we were done…maybe not so much! You know you are making a steep ascent when you have to use the roots of trees to pull yourself up the path.

But seriously, it was a whole lot of fun and a prelude to what was an incredible wedding. But that will have to wait. For today, we’ll focus on the lovely Ashley and August and what was my last engagement session of 2015!

Folsom Engagement Session | Jamie and Vaughn

When Jamie and Vaughn told me they wanted a Folsom engagement session that represented the undeveloped part of the city before houses and businesses took over, I was completely enamored with the idea! Having called Folsom home since 1997, I knew exactly what urban sprawl would do to those rolling hills on the other side of Highway 50 and was excited to spend some time in the “country” side of our city. And when Vaughn told me he was bringing his 1956 chevy, I knew it was going to be a little extra special.

We had a little time at the end of the shoot to drive into old town were we made a beeline for the lake. I may have gotten a little wet (soaked actually) for the sunset images, but it was completely worth it for that perspective of the Folsom bridge.
