75 degrees and sunny, the absolute PERFECT weather for a Arastradero Preserve engagement session. I’ve been to Arastradero a few times over the past years, but I gotta say, the dry grass came early this year! In past years, I would recommend my couples wait until July or August for dry grass engagement sessions, but sadly, California has been in the worst drought in recent years, and our dry grass months keep coming earlier and earlier in the year. Not ideal for California, but ideal for today’s session! If you’re looking for something similar to Mt. Tam without the long and windy drive, then a Arastradero Preserve engagement session is the one for you! With it’s rolling hills of dry grass, and it’s (relatively) short hike up, it’s the peninsula’s solution to a Mt. Tam.
Today’s lovely couple is Lily + Eddie! The sum of it all was, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. But it turns out, it was love.
In Lily’s words, “we met in high school in Maryland and became close friends. My first impression of him was that he was very scrawny with dorky glasses. His impression of me was that I was short with big eyes and big ears.”
Over the years, Lily + Eddie kept in touch, until one day Eddie visited Lily in the bay area. It was on that fateful trip that they decided to start dating! And the rest as they say, is history.
Congratulations to this beautiful couple, I cannot wait to photograph them in September at Bernardus Lodge!
