california redwood forest engagement session - redwood forest, ca - destination wedding photographer - bonzai & alex

This redwood forest, California engagement session was pretty dang special to be a part of!

Bonzai and Alex had an exciting idea for their session; the redwood forest! Alex's mom works for Alaska airlines, so we flew standby down to Southern Oregon and drove into California to venture into Crescent City, CA and the redwood forest. I got to spend a whole day with not only these two, but some of their family who came along as well!!

We headed into Crescent City, CA to start the engagement session off a the beach! Then we headed into the redwood forest and it was truly magical!

The size of those trees is unbelievable , I felt like I was in Fern Gully. I even brought my daughter home a HUGE clover, she couldn't believe it. 

Adventuring through just a small part of the redwood forest, we found the perfect stops before we wrapped up (stopped by Olive Garden :) ) and headed back to the airport! 

It was a day for the books and a perfect day to get to know Alex and Bonzai so much more! I can't wait for their pacific northwest wedding in September!
