I shot an engagement shoot this weekend with a lovely couple, Yi and Kailyn, at Lake Chabot in Castro Valley, CA. We started in the main picnic area but with the beautiful weather, the grounds were packed with people. After a few shots, we left the main area and went wandering up in the hills. What a thrill it was to photograph among the high grasses and gorgeous trees.
The iconic image that summed up this session for me was made when we came across large ancient-looking tree with a sideways reaching limbs as long as a bus. It made a perfect canopy to shoot under. Check out the final images below.
