As we began planning with Jennifer & Tristan for their engagement portraits, we asked what kind of vibes they were hoping for. They immediately shared about their love for adventure and camping, as well as wanting to incorporate redwoods into their session. Fast forward a few emails and texts and Jennifer & Tristan decided they wanted to go camping!

We made our way into a small mountain town in the Santa Cruz Mountains to a beautiful park and campground. There you find yourself surrounded with the most incredible old-growth redwoods. We trekked through the trees, stopping for portraits often because of the impeccable lighting filtering through the giant trees.

Along Pescadero Creek, there are trails you could wander along all day. The cool air hung in the air as we walked the muddied trails.

As we arrived back at Jennifer & Tristan's campsite, they warmed up with coffee and toasting marshmallows by the campfire. There's no better place to snuggle than next to the fire pit!
