Pre-Wedding Engagement Session at Convict Lake, Hot Creek

A few weeks ago I met up with Megan and Andrew to do some engagement shots for their spring 2011 wedding in Hawaii.

Unfortunately, Josh and I don’t get to head to the islands with them. But it’s ok, because traipsing around in the geothermal mud south of Mammoth with them was just as good.

They live in Southern California at the moment, but Andrew spent several years in Mammoth and they are here most weekends. As a former local, he had some great ideas of locations to do the shoot. We started at Convict, but as is common at this time of year up there, the wind was howling. It was like being on the coast with waves pounding in to the rocks around the dock area on the east side of the lake.

From there we went down to the friendlier, though less alpine, area around Hot Creek and the tubs. It’s a spot I’ve wanted to do portraits at for a while and it was great. There was a big storm rolling in and, as usually happens in the Eastern Sierra just before a big storm, the cloud formations were incredible. We shot around there, and out on the Green Church road, until it started to get dark.

That’s all for now. It’s almost Christmas and our summer wedding schedule is filling up quickly. We just booked another destination wedding, this time in Santa Barbara with Misa and Ian. That should be a blast; our first real coastal wedding. If you’re looking for a quote on a wedding for next summer, shoot us an email, or join us on Facebook here.
