Shooting adventurous engagement sessions in Big Bear has become so familiar to me it’s like shooting in my own back yard. But, returning to Holcomb Valley NEVER gets old. I’m always discovering secret spots for my couples that fits THEM and the kind of adventure they seek.
Something unique to Katie and Brandon’s session was traveling through the Big Bear dirt roads in their beloved Jeep. They drove over the really big puddles not minding getting all muddy—or at least the Jeep—in order to find our private dense forest and open meadow. I had a blast capturing them running, jumping, and throwing a bit of snow amongst the San Bernardino pine trees. We topped this off with some frolicking through the wide open meadows of Big Bear!
I love it when an adventurous engagement session represents that couple SO WELL. Besides having a gorgeous ring and saying yes, no two engagements should have to be alike! Besides their love for each other and their Jeep, Katie and Brandon also LOVE country music. I had these two singing and dancing like no one was watching to literally every country song ever written as it blasted from their Jeep. It doesn’t get much more country than that!
Moments like this are why I do this job: catching truly authentic moments of couples in their element together. I die every time, and then burn with excitement for the next opportunity I am privileged to repeat this amazing experience!
