I didn’t want to share these images at the time they were taken because Thomas and Jessika hadn’t sent out their Save the Date’s yet, but I will share now because these images make me excited that wedding season is here in beautiful Humboldt County! Jessika contacted me early last summer about doing her engagement photos. We decided on a Monday in August. We chose a mutual friends beautiful ranch in Southern Humboldt. We traveled on 4 wheelers and in trucks through the four wheel drive roads to capture some beautiful, romantic images. Some of my favorite images of all time are the ones we took underneath this big tree with the sun illuminating them from behind. I am such a sucker for magical light. It wasn’t originally an intended spot, but as they were following me along the road to the next location, I saw it and had to stop. She got off her four wheeler and said, “That light?” and I said, “Yes!” The sun shining through the tree created some soft magical light and we got some fairy tale, romantic images. It was a fun relaxed evening and I can’t wait to shoot their wedding at the beautiful Rosina Vineyards in September!
