California Valley Engagement Session- Yuli & Mark

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is that when I photograph, we’re not just taking pretty photos. We’re going on a fun, memorable adventure & you get a ton of photos to document it. When clients first book me & we begin the planning process, I try to pick out important places or things that play a role in their relationship. For example, maybe an old band shirt from their first date or the ice cream shop they used to always go to. When I asked Yuli & Mark, they immediately knew they wanted to do go to their favorite camping spot. They told me they have been going to this spot for a while together & it meant a lot to them. I LOVED the idea. When I drove up, I immediately fell in love with the summer camp vibes. It had a lake in the back & California hills lining the background. A photographer’s dream, honestly. I was introduced to their sweet family & then we headed for the woods. If you’ve read any of my blog posts in the past, you know that I HATE posing my couples. People tend to get a little scared at first before they realize I just want them to goof off & have fun. Yuli & Mark literally fell into each other & made my job way too easy. They interacted with each other like there was no one else in the world & it was absolutely perfect. Check out how adorable their engagement session was.
