Bill + Heidi

Got an email out of the blue a few months back.  “Would you be interested in shooting a wedding in Yosemite, and maybe a Pt. Reyes engagement session, since that’s where we got engaged?”  I could only have one response – Is the Pope Catholic?

And so Bill, Heidi, and I made plans for a weekend shoot.  I figured, if we’re heading all the way out to Pt. Reyes, let’s do it right and cover some ground.  Ya know, go for some different looks and use the National Seashore for all it’s beauty. Well, you know what they say about plans.  We make ’em and God laughs.  Note to all those who don’t live in Northern California right now:  God laughing = Rain.

Cool looking trail.

Even with the wind blowing and the rain coming down, we charged on out into the wilderness anyhow.  I was suited up my Gore-Tex goodness, and protecting my camera was an Aquatec Rain Sheild.  Good thing too, because it rained the entire session.

Gotta say, everything worked out perfectly.  I was fairly dry as was the equipment, and Bill and Heidi never wavered in their pursuit of, well, just having a good time.  We knew we were done when I mentioned something about hot spicy bean soup with sausages and cheese (I had just made it the night before).  As I was walking and talking about it, there was an odd silence behind me.  I asked if they were OK.  They responded, “Yes, but we were just thinking how good that soup sounds.”  I knew we only had a few more shots left.

Here are a few from the day.  Enjoy!

Lichens. Are you lichen me now? I'm a lichen that! OK...enough

This trail was so beautiful. It's pretty amazing that you can leave the city and be here in about an hour.

Here's where the rain starting to come down, but before any mention of bean soup.

Heidi, doing a bit of running to stay warm.

Jumping the water.

Bill, you have hops! Me? I walked around.

Bill, indignant that it's raining - still.

Just kidding. I think he was loving it.

Out of the wind for a bit.

Well, that’s it for your Friday edition.  More engagement sessions lined up this weekend, so there’ll be plenty of images to come.  Hopefully the rain holds off, but somehow I doubt that.  At least we can look forward to some decently nice weather in the coming week!

Hope you enjoyed the photos.

See you down the road.
