this was sure to be an unique engagement. amanda + spenser, based in LA, wanted to meet somewhere out of the norm for their engagement session. they decided on mammoth for their destination. the goal: to hike to devil’s postpile and then trek over to rainbow falls for the finale. in between, we photograph. i love the journalistic point of view that an afternoon of hiking allows you to capture. inspires me to photograph more lifestyle. and although at 9,000 ft. on a cloudless-less bright day may not bring on the softest lighting, we can thank mother nature for providing cool shade and a waterfall of escape from the sun.
for the long drive to and fro, i had the company of my sweet niece. and after saying our goodbyes with the October wedding couple, we hit up the closest thing to eat – the most mozzarella, sausage and chili flake pizza. holy moly nothing is better than wrapping up a long day with that piece of heaven. [just a little background on this one…amanda and spenser met in theatre!]
