Samantha & Robert

If you're looking for a fairytale wonderland, then look no further. One thing that California has over the East Coast is the Redwood Forests. Large sequoia trees that seemingly tower you for miles are really only found on the West Coast. This makes it one of the most sought after locations EVER, since it's not everyday that you get to stumble across these humongous trees. For Samantha & Robert's bridal portraits, we wanted to incorporate a ton of nature & greenery and what better place than the Redwood Forests!

The Redwood National Forests are home to some of the tallest trees on Earth. Yes, you read that right... on EARTH! Throughout these forests you will find hiking trails, prairies and rivers that will transport you into another world. Being surrounded by such beauty is still so shocking, I am still pinching myself to this day.

For Samantha & Roberts bridals, we went for a more earthy approach. Seeing that we were in one of the most beautiful locations I have ever seen, we really wanted to utilize what Mother Nature gave us. Quite literally. Samantha and Robert were absolute naturals when it came to being in front of the camera. Samantha wore this beautiful crochet material dress and a studded hat which added a touch of a bohemian flair. Since the the Redwood Forests are such a big tourist attraction, there are stairs and paths already cleared out for anyone wanting to explore. We wandered throughout the forest and even got down in dirty amongst the leaves and tree trunks.

As we got deeper into the forest, it felt as if the trees began doubling in size. At times you could also feel overwhelmed by how much is actually going on. The light began peeking through the trees so perfectly as if it were a sign from the universe that we were where we were meant to be. While it was a beautiful place to be, and I definitely want to go back, I remember immediately wanting to run back and export these photos. Not only was I obsessed with how the trees photographed, but I was able to play a lot with my creativity with this shoot. So tell me, what do you think?
