Sierra and Ryan’s Snowbound Engagement Session in Mammoth Lakes

Sierra and Ryan picked this week to do their engagement pictures way back in January. At that point we were deep into one of the biggest storms I can ever remember in Mammoth. Scheduling these photos for March, I thought, seemed like a good bet. The sun should be shining and the Owens Valley should be thawed out. The chosen day turned out to be the eve of a five-foot dump and when weather like that rolls into the Eastern Sierra, it brings big wind and freezing temps. But they were resilient–more so than I was up for, and we went for a quick walk out near Mammoth Creek and Sierra Meadows to get a few engagement shots for their August wedding in Mammoth. The weather was bad enough that we decided to cut it short, and we’ll finish up when spring really arrives–which should happen sometime before August. Aside from the oncoming storm, it was great to get to know these two. They’ve been coming up from Southern California’s Apple Valley for a few years to fish and recreate and fell in love with the area to the point they decided it would be a dream wedding destination. I have a feeling that dream didn’t include slogging through the snow in 20-degree weather and high winds, but winter will end someday. At least that’s what I told them. So look for more from Ryan and Sierra soon as well as a lot more. Minaret Photography’s wedding season starts in two weeks in Yosemite (which will be quite the adventure with Tioga Pass likely closed for at least two more months). We’ve also got a new selection of albums and guest book print ideas dialed in, and we will have some sample photos of them up here very soon. Finally, it’s not too late to plan your 2011 wedding. We’ve got some space available through the summer and fall, but we continue to book couples as the seasons change. Thanks a lot and keep checking it. -Brandonundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined
