Mammoth Lakes Engagement: Caitlin & Kyle

There’s something a little magical about a snowy mountain engagement session which is why I am so excited to share Caitlin and Kyle’s engagement session at Mammoth Lakes on the blog tonight!

Mammoth Lakes is one of their favorite places to go which is what made it the perfect setting for their engagement session. They both love the outdoors, in fact they got engaged this last July while on a camping road trip up the coast. Caitlin was totally surprised and may have shed a few gallons of happy tears. 

Mammoth Lakes is a bit of a drive from Valencia, CA so I decided to drag the hubs along with me and make a little weekend trip out of it for us. We stayed at the Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa and loved it! They even gave us a free upgrade to the fireplace suite and it was beautiful!

The next day we met up with Caitlin and Kyle at the Tamarack Lodge to start their session with some snowy mountain pictures. It is so pretty up there! The lake was covered with ice and snow and the mountains were the perfect backdrop. I think my favorite detail about their session is that they brought their dog Memphis with them for pictures. Memphis is actually the reason Caitlin & Kyle met. Caitlin was working at a veterinary office where Kyle had to bring Memphis in so you could say that Memphis is quite the matchmaker. 

After we were down with the snowy photos at the lodge we headed down the mountain to the hot springs for a little different setting. Caitlin and Kyle even brought some fly fishing gear to have a little fun with getting some photos of them doing something they love to do together. 

Adventuring around the Mammoth area with these two was so fun! Caitlin and Kyle, you tow are such a cute couple and I am so very excited for you! Can’t wait for the wedding next year! – Megan

Lexa & Eric: Valencia Engagement Session

Excited to share this sweet engagement session today at one of my favorite locations near Valencia, CA! Lexa & Eric met while in college and it was actually while Eric’s good friend was dating her.  They didn’t really dive into a friendship until later when Lexa was single and they ended up working on the same outreach team together. They soon realized they kinda liked each other more than just a little. They ended up dating and this last December Eric proposed and she said yes! During their session I loved that it was easy to laugh with them and just talk about life and future plans. They both have a heart to serve God with their lives and I know He is going to use them in a mighty way. So happy for you two and loved photographing your engagement session!! Congrats!

DeeJay & Jake: Valencia Engagement Session

Excited to be sharing DeeJay and Jake’s engagement session today! We trekked around to a few different spots in Valencia and Santa Clarita to use the awesome vintage MINT GREEN Chevy truck and DeeJay’s DIY Lace Tent. I may have drooled a little over the truck. I loved how they like to have fun together just in the simple things. Sometimes Jake would say something trying to be be funny or make DeeJay laugh for a picture and then she’d just give him a weird look which then make him laugh so it all worked out.

We hit the hillside at the perfect time as the sun was setting and the lace tent was so gorgeous as the sun streamed through. I had so much fun with these two and I love it when clients get excited about incorporating fun things that they love. I couldn’t be more happy for DeeJay & Jake and being able to document their love has been such a beautiful experience. You can see their engagement on the Queen May here. So excited for their wedding this August!

Camille & Dion: Engagement

 So very happy for Camille & Dion! They chose to have their engagement session at the LA County Museum of Art and I was excited about going there since I had never been before.  I found a few sparse cherry blossoms on the property while I was scouting out good spots before Camille and Dion arrived and wanted to jump up and down. I love cherry blossoms and Camille happens to love them too so she was delightfully surprised! 🙂  Both of them are such sweet people and made it easy to get good pictures. 🙂 Congrats Camille & Dion!

Santa Clarita Engagement: Heidi & Robert

Placerita Canyon Engagement

Heidi and Robert just about smiled from ear to ear the entire session. Pretty sure they were smiling even when swatting the bugs that seemed to never go away. They both have a sweet countenance which makes them both so pleasant to be around and easy to photograph.  I’ve known Robert for several years now and seeing him with Heidi makes me so happy. They are two beautiful people with a heart to bring glory to God through their lives and that makes me all the more excited to photograph their wedding in January. 🙂 Wishing you both the very best for your future and happy wedding planning these next few months. 🙂
