Last fall, I came started thinking about ways to combine camping trips with portraits/engagements/weddings and came up with Adventure Love Stories. After a weekend at Photo Field Trip in March, I reached out to the campers who were a part of everything to see if anyone would be up for a little adventure. Here’s where Julianne and John come in. Although we never met at Field Trip, Julianne jumped on the idea to go on a little camping trip in Big Sur with her fiancee, so we did just that. The afternoon was spent on a little hike through the massive forests followed by spending the night in our tents at Limekiln State Park.
These are definitely the types of shoots I’d love to see more of. Ones where you don’t have to worry about crowds, where bedtime is decided once you’re full of s’mores and the fire is almost out, and where you wake up from sunlight gently crossing your eyes through the tent.
