I love when my couples pick an engagement spot that is special to them. Jeff grew up in the Nevada City area and spent a lot of his younger days at the river. I will say that I was a little worried after driving for a good, long way down Yankee Jim Road and not really seeing anything. But once we got there…wow…what a grand spot for childhood memories he had! I have a feeling this little area is a treasure not many people know about; I feel blessed that they shared it with me.
Stephanie and Jeff’s Yankee Jims engagement session helped solidify Jeff’s memories of growing up, this time with his best girl and first baby (a furry one of the canine variety) at hand. It all felt very symbolic in many ways. We went deep into the canyon to get down to the river and we stayed through the evening hours to catch the sunset. It was worth the long drive and going past the creepy house with the noose hanging out front at night for sure (true story). The experience left me even more excited for their wedding coming up next September!
