Goofy & Wild Engagement Session / Mt Shasta, CA

As a Photographer, you’re always expected to have the best locations, the perfect weather and the ideal conditions. Welp, that never happens, and when it does, it’s rare. Let me tell you about those unexpected engagement session that got all of us worried but ended the day on a positive note nonetheless.

This is Fatima & Dereck, we planned on having their engagement session in the beautiful Mt Shasta. We were supposed to take a hike up to Heart Lake, a lovely hike that overlooks a heart shaped lake. Cute right? Welp… The whole area was still snowed in as you can see. But that didn’t stop us. Before it started hailing we got some SICK shots on the frozen lake. Sketchy. Yes. But that’s the fun of it right? lol

As we finished up the first location, it started hailing HARD, finished just in time.

From that point on we had a mix of rain and clouds and we were just playing and chasing the weather. But after everything, all the rain and all, it turned out to be 100% worth it. They killed their shoot and the photos turned out AMAZING!

Moments like this will get you stressed out, it will feel a little overwhelming but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and work with what you get. You never know, the end results might turn out pretty awesome.

That being said, I’m super excited for their wedding, it’s going to be a pretty badass day :)
