Death Valley National Park Engagement

Y+ R fulfilled our DREAMS of doing a Death Valley National Park engagement session, and it was kinda serendipitous how it alll came to be.

We went over to their home to watch a Sundance Festival movie and talked about ideas for their engagement session. We threw out locations we would love to shoot at and they so happened to have campsite reservations at Death Valley National Park for the end of March. We said say less, we’re there. We booked a last-minute campsite (thank you Campflare!!!) and the rest is history.

Death Valley isn't just notorious for its terribly hot summers, (and trust us, the heat can be brutal). It also has STUNNING landscapes, a literal magnet for adventurers. Seriously, it is drop-dead gorgeous (pun intended).

Because we were photographing their Death Valley National Park engagement photos in late March the weather was perfect. We aren't going to sugarcoat it, it did get a little hot, but we were ready to brave the elements for an unforgettable experience.

Y + R were all in on this escapade for their engagement session. We soaked in the ethereal beauty of Badwater Basin (the lowest point in North America) right before golden hour hit and explored the mesmerizing painted canyons at Artists Palette.

The next morning, we woke up at sunrise to grab some cozy photos of them in their camping gear and after made our way over to their campsite to have breakfast! The weekend spent with them at Death Valley National Park was seriously one for the books and we can't wait for their Santa Barbara Zoo wedding in the fall and hang out with the giraffes (if you know Nancy, you know she LOVES giraffes so this is a dream come true).

If you're dreaming of visiting Death Valley National Park for an elopement or your own engagement photos, trust us, this place is a hidden gem that's worth adding to your list!

Joshua Tree National Park Engagement

Exploring Joshua Tree National Park for J + D's engagement photos was truly a majestic desert adventure that we *never* get over.

The February winds were howling, and the temperatures were seriously chilly, and unless you're up for an exhilarating (and freezing) experience, we don't recommend that time of year. If you're considering having your engagement session here, we do recommend opting for a warmer season between late March to early May to fully enjoy the experience.

BUT despite the chilly winds and low-ish temperatures, their love shone bright amidst the desert landscape. The desert stretched before us, adorned with iconic Joshua Trees and jaw-dropping rock formations. J+D's love story unfolded against this awe-inspiring backdrop, radiating warmth, laughter, and sheer bliss.

Whether you're basking in the soft, golden sunlight or exploring the insane starry nights, the iconic Joshua Trees and stunning rock formations offer a picturesque setting to capture your engagement.

While the cold, billowing wind kept us on our toes, we were prepared with an arsenal of Hot Hands to keep J+D warm and cozy. If you're planning a winter engagement, rest assured we'll have you covered, literally!

If you're ready to embark on your own epic Joshua Tree National Park engagement adventure, let's make it happen!

Torrey Pines Beach Engagement and Proposal

Picture this: the sun-kissed sands, majestic cliffs, and the rhythmic crashing of waves created a magical atmosphere that set the stage for an unforgettable experience in San Diego's very own Torrey Pines beach, the ultimate dreamy spot for engagement photos!

In this Southern California gem, C+M's love story unfolded in the most breathtaking way. We were even in on the surprise proposal for C! Talk about being part of something truly special!

As they strolled hand in hand along the shoreline, the golden hour light embraced them, turning every moment into pure magic. Every frame captured the depth of their connection, from tender moments beneath towering cliffs to playful exchanges by the water's edge. Torrey Pines Beach became the canvas for their unique love story like no other.

But wait, our adventure together didn't end there! After a quick outfit change and chasing the sunset, we embarked on a boba-filled journey with C+M. Our destination? The amaaaaazing Happy Lemon in Del Mar where we were introduced to a freaking delicious puff waffle! It was *pure bliss* as we savored every crispy, fluffy bite together.

This whole experience of capturing their engagement photos at Torrey Pines perfectly reflects the energy and joy we share with our couples. It's about embracing every ounce of happiness, whether it's the golden sun's warm embrace or the sweet indulgence of boba and that freaking addictive-ass puff waffle. These shared moments strengthen our bond with incredible couples like C+M.

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park Engagement Photos in Felton, CA

Alexis and Mitchell decided on Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park for their engagement photos and we seriously couldn't have been more excited. Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is a stunning place and it's easy to see why it would make an amazing place for your engagement photos. With its redwood trees, clear blue sky, and San Lorenzo River trickling in the background, the picturesque park is breathtaking.

We seriously fell in love with these two 5 minutes into our initial Facetime call (but Nancy fell in love right at the beginning of reading their answers to our questionnaire). With responses like binging Schitt's Creek during the pandemic at least 3 times, and mentioning they are Panic! At The Disco fans and mostly early '00s emo. It was like we were reading our own answers to our questionnaire!

Right away, we fell in love with their energy and big smiles! If you've never been to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, there is a small meadow in amongst the trees where we all decided to recreate the Twilight Edward/Bella scene. At one point, with Alexis sitting on Mitchell's lap, these two ladies pushing strollers walked by and commented, "how beautiful! And look, they're practicing making babies." It had us busting up for the rest of the night.

We finished the rest of the session with Alexis and Mitchell changing into their formal attire at their car — a maroon dress and a blue button-up with dark slacks. We headed back out to our original location as the sun started to quickly set. Alexis was a champ since it was getting cold, but she made it look warm.

We ended the night with Nancy getting us on some crazy one-lane back road through the Santa Cruz Mountains and grabbing some delicious pizza on the way back to our hotel from A Slice of New York. We would highly recommend trying it if you are in the area!
