Oh man, I don’t even know where to begin with this adventurous engagement! This session will go down as one of my favorite adventurous engagements to date! From a grove of cypress trees to a foggy farm, it was just such an unexpectedly magical time at this Point Reyes engagement.
The fun began in meeting up with Megan and Ross. We grabbed coffee to go and then sat outside getting to know each other a little more. These initial moments spending time with my couples is so crucial in being able to document their love story!
Next stop—we headed to the trees.
These were no ordinary trees! The cypress tree tunnel at Point Reyes National Seashore (just north of San Francisco) is a beautiful wooded pathway enclosed by two rows of bending cypress trees. This couple had brought along their little fur baby who brought them so much obvious joy as they chased him up and down the grove.
At any adventurous engagement shoot, the best thing a couple can do is simply play around and have fun. When they do, they find that in just being themselves I’m enabled to capture their love in the best light!
The look of this path of trees was truly otherworldly, and that wasn’t even the best part.
The real magical part of their foggy engagement began when we arrived at the old farm full of historic buildings at Point Reyes. We weren’t there for long before a blanket of fog rolled in creating such an eerie vibe.
It almost felt like we were in the middle of a Jane Austen movie. It was SO fun! I turned on classical while the two of them frolicked and danced like Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.
As the fog continued to pour over our surroundings we had increasing opportunities to get creative with their shots. They walked, they ran, they jumped, they sat in barn doorways, kissed alongside a white picket fence, and sat in one another’s arms underneath the lingering fog.
Neither of us wanted their adventure session to end! I like to think that for them it didn’t. Megan and Ross merely moved out of my line of sight as they walked away into the magical fog.
