Ellen & Ted are pretty much the definitions of picture perfect couple. Not only do they both look like they walked out of a magazine, but they are madly in love and naturally adorable together in front of the camera (making my job easy)! As we were in the planning stages of their engagement session, we tossed ideas around for props like bicycles, tents, a camping theme, etc. In the end though, they decided to instead keep it simple, allowing this incredibly beautiful location to speak for itself. When we arrived I couldn’t believe how stunning the natural elements were, it was seriously a photographer’s dream! Ellen & Ted are both the outdoorsy type, so the location suited them perfectly. Their session was full of laughter & love, as the redwoods stood tall above them.
“Ted and I love hiking and are super passionate about the outdoors, so when we stumbled across this amazing Redwood grove while hiking one day, we knew we had to incorporate it into our engagement photos! My stepdad has always referred to me as his “little hippie girl” and I love bohemian styles, so I wanted to incorporate a fringed style sweater and different textures into our outfits but still keep things fresh and modern.”— Ellen
