Snow Fights + Wardrobe Changes at Chalet View Lodge: Jess + Rio’s Engagement Session
To say we love our work is an understatement; we’re seriously obsessed with what we do. Not only do we get to spend time adventuring outdoors, but we also get to meet super cool couples in the process.
Case in point: Jess and Rio.
The two native Californians, who plan on tying the knot this April (we’ll be photographing that too!), met over six years ago and both agree that it really was love at first sight. Looking for creative photographers who love the outdoors as much as they do, it was a great fit for all of us.
We ventured to Chalet View Lodge for the engagement session, the couple packing a few outfit changes so that we could capture all of the vibes they wanted. (Jess went from a weekend casual sweater to a gorgeous off-the-shoulder velvet gown to a cozy cardigan + boots.) Because the couple stayed at the property for the weekend, they had gotten familiar with a few of the places they wanted to have photos before we even got there.
Together, we explored the gorgeous mountain property, enjoying the fresh snow on the ground and strolling on a picturesque riverbank. The towering trees helped to filter the sunlight as it started to set - a cool effect especially with all of the natural textures we came across.
The couple really allowed their personality to come through as we worked, which made the day even more enjoyable!
