These two have the adventurous kind of souls that I love and adore.
Lauryn + Morgan had this spot picked out for their engagements from the very beginning— because it was a place that they spend a lot of time in! It’s my absolute favorite thing when locations are chosen based off of meaning and memories. From familiarity comes inspiration and moments that otherwise wouldn’t have been. These two spend a lot of their summers hiking through these woods and around this crystal blue lake, and I’m so honored and happy that they shared it with me. Is it not the most stunning place you’ve seen? I didn’t even know a place like this existed so close to me! After their engagements, no joke my husband and I went back up there I think 4 times in 2 weeks, and I already cannot wait for it to be warm enough to go again.
Not even a week prior to their shoot, the trail was still packed with snow from the winter! We had started discussing alternative options, but then a few days prior to their shoot all the snow melted and it was the most beautiful week we could have asked for!
Two of my best photographer friends (Autumn Nicole and Autumn Grey), happened to be with me on this shoot and it was such a blast running around with these two in the woods and convincing them to get in the ice cold snow-run-off water to swim with their pup.
Absolutely love these two and their sweet souls and cannot wait for their wedding in May, in KAUAI! So excited to adventure with them some more.
