I think this engagement session takes the cake for how early in the day we started. We wanted to head out to Henry Cowell Redwood state park for Aiza and John’s engagement session. I have never been there and wanted to make sure we got there really early to catch the morning sun as it peeked over the redwoods. I arrived at Aiza and John’s place at 5am to ride out to Heny Cowell Redwoods for the shoot. It was still dark out and their place overlooked a beautiful cityscape, so we decided to take a couple of pictures with their lovable Siberian husky before heading out. Of course we had to make the obligatory Starbucks stop first!
When we arrived at the park an hour and a half later, it was still dark. I was glad for that because I really wanted to be there for the first light. Well, it was worth it! The sun came up and lit a thin blanket of mist that covered a golden meadow. The moon was still visible and the feeling was awe inspiring. It was absolutely magical to be there. We spent the next few hours walking around the park and enjoying the day before heading back. Here are a few pictures from the engagement shoot.
