I had the pleasure of showing Becca and Lenin some of my favorite scenic spots around Mount Laguna for their couple portraits. These Oklahoma natives were visiting San Diego for a friend’s wedding and wanted to take home some of their own memories.
I connected with Becca in a Facebook group for women in the wedding photography industry. Lenin and Becca rely heavily on their tripod and remote set up for self-portraits when they travel. She expressed how difficult it is to capture their love organically when fiddling around with camera settings. They haven’t been photographed by someone else since their wedding day.
I think it’s important to remember, the days before or after your wedding day are just as memorable as that day itself. I love doing impromptu couples sessions like this for that reason.
Forest & Scenic Portraits at Mount Laguna
Coming from such a flat state, Becca and Lenin were craving mountains and forests. First, we explored the forest around the campgrounds.
As the light waned, we head to one of my favorite look out points intersecting the Pacific Crest Trail. The drop off to the Anza Borrego desert below Mount Laguna is one of the most spectacular views in San Diego.
It’s always a privilege to photograph my peers, especially a pair as talented as these two. Thanks for the adventure, Becca & Lenin!
If you love this session, I recommend checking out our adventure with Brogen and David in Anza Borrego.
