Chelsea and Brian are from Southern California, but think of the Eastern Sierra–specifically the June Lake area–as a home away from home.
Given their love of the area, trekking up here for their engagement photo session in the fall colors made perfect sense.
I’m not sure what it was, but the fall colors around June Lake were fantastic this year. They were especially good in early October, when we met up for this session. We ended up spending an afternoon and a morning there shooting, and got some rad images in several different spots around the loop. We hit Gull Lake, Silver Lake, and Aerie Crag, which is a cool pull off by Rush Creek towards the north end of the loop.
It was a great chance to get to hang with these guys for a few days, and we’ll be shooting their wedding in Mammoth next summer.
I was also out there to shoot Jenn and Justin’s engagement session the next day. We were able to do an entirely different type of shoot in the same general area, though we were also at Rainbow Falls for part of the day. Check back soon for that, and thanks again for stopping by.
We’ve got several family portrait sessions and engagement photo shoots during Thanksgiving. Keep an eye out for those too.
