Angelus Oaks Forest Engagement Photography // Anyone who knows me knows that my go to favorite places are the desert and the city. Joshua Tree & DTLA have my heart. If I had to pick a 3rd favorite place to shoot it would be “someone I’ve never shot before”. I LOVE going new places! When I was emailing with Carly about where to do their engagement session she casually threw out the idea of a forest. My response was something like CAN WE PLEASE GO TO THE FOREST!?! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!! Something like that. But maybe with a tiny bit more chill. Maybe.
My soul loves adventure so I will happily opt to drive 2 hours to experience something fun and new.
And so Carly & Marcel’s Angelus Oaks forest engagement session was born. It looks a little different from my desert norm and I couldn’t be more obsessed.
Coffees in hand we met in the little town of Angelus Oaks and drove together all around the mountain until we found the perfect spot to pull off and it was absolutely magical. The trees. The light. I love it all! Also, you’d never guess it from these photos but it was only 44º while we were shooting. Carly is the ultimate trooper! It was freezing! After the sun started to set we started to head back down the mountain and stopped at the most beautiful pull out to end the shoot. The side of the road is basically my favorite no matter where I am.
Carly & Marcel, I can’t wait for your wedding in a few weeks! ♥
I’ll be back in Angelus Oaks in August [when it’s warmer!] if anyone is interested in scheduling their own forest adventure!
