Dyllan and Elizabeth’s Mount Laguna engagement had summer vibes written all over it. From the moment we met in Julian for the first time, Dyllan and Elizabeth were glowing with genuine happiness. This is the kind of love that is incredibly easy to capture on camera because of its authenticity. They are completely head over heels for each other.
Frolicking in the lupines of Julian
On the drive up to Lake Cuyamaca, I noticed my favorite field of lupines were blooming on the mountainside again. We piled into Dyllan’s Jeep and backtracked a little to frolick amongst the lavender flowers.
We stopped at a vast, rolling field of golden wheat grass and took shelter for a bit under the shade of the pines. We piled back into the car and stopped once more to run around the open road. But I saved the best for last: my favorite secret look out spot where the Anza Borrego desert stretches out beneath you for endless miles.
Portraits at Mount Laguna drop off
Dusk crept over the landscape slowly, transforming the sky into every shade of pastel blue, purple and pink. I had a few sparklers left in my bag from a previous shoot that made for a great finale to an amazing session with these two.
Can’t wait to capture this wedding in January- congrats Dyllan & Elizabeth!
Hello! Would you be able to tell me where the last spot overlooking the mountains is in Mount Laguna? Is it hard to access?

Nope there are a bunch of pull outs along the highway that have beautiful views overlooking Anza Borrego like this! All easily accessible as it runs along the PCT.
