We love being outdoors. And when we find couples that love nature as much as we do, it really is a match made in heaven. We headed outdoors to meet Stellie and James for their engagement session, and were thrilled when they suggested we meet them directly at their campsite. Having met in medical school, the two are planning a 2020 wedding in Banff. But, for their super cute engagement sessions, we used their campsite at Lake Tahoe’s Fallen Leaf Lake to create the perfect laidback, outdorsy backdrop we all wanted.
Living and working in San Francisco, Stellie and James get outdoors as much as they can to escape the hustle and bustle of big city life. Truly the ultimate weekend warriors, everything about them is super rad. We connected immediately over our shared love for bikes, travel, and everything else that falls under the umbrella of outdoor adventuring.
It was instantly clear how much the couple loves being outdoors because they were so relaxed during the engagement session – from start to finish. Not only were we able to get the cutest photos of the two relaxing in their tent, but the lake cooperated perfectly to create super cool reflections of the still snow-capped mountains.
Incredibly fun and obviously in love, our time spent with Stellie and James was enjoyable to say the least. And, to make things even more perfect, Stellie was kind enough to text us after previewing the shots to tell us how much she loved the shots, which totally made our day!
