Engagement Session in the Hills of Petaluma

Yesterday I went for a hike visiting the same oak tree where I captured this wonderful engagement photo. I noticed that the leaves have grown already and I wouldn’t have been able to get this amazing silhouette of the gnarled oak tree. On the day of the engagement session, the tree was still all bare, revealing it’s beautiful structure – nature as a master sculptor!Oak Tree Sculpture
Jenna & Chris came all the way from Sacramento for this outdoor engagement session. Considering the season – it was an unusual warm and sunny day – just perfect to roam around the Petaluma Hills… with some Holstein cows in the background. Holstein Cows
The oak trees created perfect play structures for some fun photos. Jenna & Chris didn’t hesitate to climb & jump.

After all that fun walking & running it was time for a little break. Chris & Jenna found a soft spot to lay in the lush green. While this time I got to climb the tree to get this bird view photo.Lush Green

This was a real beautiful and fun day for all of us! I can’t wait to see them again on their wedding day in Mendocino.

    Just wanted to say, this is one of the most exquisite wedding photos I have ever seen. I may be biased, having grown up among those oaks of Petaluma, but you have captured so much more than just the moment.

    I perused you site further, and am very impressed – I spend a lot of time around weddings these days, though I work from the florist’s end of things, but photography is my true love and I can’t help greatly admiring your talent! Great eye, and I look forward to seeing more!
