Drawn To Water

An engagement session at the very secluded Lake Temescal Park in Oakland, CA.

I met Carmela last year when she booked my photo booth services for her neice’s birthday party. I thought she and her family were really great people, so I was “over the moon” when she reached out to me months later and asked if I wanted to be her wedding photographer!

Because of the surprise California rainy season this winter, we had to postpone our engagement session a few times. We were so happy when we finally were able to do the session! Carmela and Chewy and people drawn to water, so I suggested we have our session at the little known Lake Temescal Park in Oakland. This secluded city maintained jewel is frequented by locals who enjoy quiet afternoons fishing and hiking the trails, and it was perfect to show off this couple’s love and personality.

I can’t wait to see them again on their wedding. Cheers, you guys!
