MARTINA + ADAM ENGAGEMENT IN SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK
November 13, 2017
When I asked Martina and Adam where they would like to do their engagement photos, Sequoia National Park was one of the first places that came to their mind.
Since the Sequoias hold a special place in my heart (it is where Jonathan and I fell in love, after all!) I immediately started pestering them for a campfire and hot cocoa themed shoot.. and these two were totally down for it!
I mentioned that my husband would be nearby with our kiddos (I had just had Rowan a little less than two weeks before!) and Martina brought the fixing for smores so my toddlers could join in some of the fun after the shoot. That is just how chill and down to earth these two are. They are so perfect for one another and their laid back, adventurous and up for anything attitude makes them a joy to be around.
We had initially planned to head all the way up the redwoods near Moro Rock, but the road construction was estimated to be a 4 HOUR WAIT. (Seriously, will that construction EVER end?! It seems like they have been at it for about 5 years now…) So we reverted to Plan B and took photos at Hospital Rock and Potwisha campground in the foothills. They day was gorgeous and cool and overcast, and absolutely perfect for a campfire and smores.
It was so much fun capturing these shots! Everything from scouting out the locations, hunting for wood for the fire (since my hubby forgot the firewood.. shame shame!) and then dodging Park Rangers on the way out of the park after borrowing a reserved campsite… *shifty eyes*.. seriously love it when my couples are as awesome sauce as these too. It makes me wish every day was a “work” day! <3
But enough chatter.. on with the photos! Congrats you two, I cannot wait to shoot your next session and wedding!! <3
