Jessica + Garret ~ Saugus
I thoroughly enjoy having my previous wedding clients contact me when they reach another milestone in their lives, and these two did just that. I shot Jessica and Garret’s engagement pictures and their wedding, so it seemed fitting to be approached by Jessica to do their maternity pictures. I first took them up to one of my favorite locations for outdoor shoots, way up Bouquet Canyon and into the Angeles Forest. While there we ran into some people panning for gold and I immediately had to control the urge to discuss the show Gold Rush with them. I’m an avid viewer of the series. After having several days in a row that felt like summer during the winter, I happened to schedule our shoot on the day that winter decided to return to its regular season. It was bitterly cold out, but Jessica and Garret were great about the nippy weather and allowed me total creative freedom with their shoot. We ended the shoot by going to a new addition to my favorite locations – a meadow in Saugus. No gold panners, but still a great semi-secluded spot.
