When we learned that Abby & Rothwell had gotten engaged at Lake Arrowhead we were trying to find a location in Santa Barbara with a similar woodsy feel. We didn’t have much luck because Santa Barbara is a beach town and although we love it for that, it’s not very woodsy. But that’s the really awesome thing about Southern California. It’s SO unique. We can visit the beach, downtown Los Angeles, and the mountains. All in one day. And that’s when inspiration struck, and we made plans to just go there, and we’re so glad we did! Abby & Rothwell’s Lake Arrowhead engagement session was a bit chilly, and a great time in the mountains! We even ended up staying an extra night to see some snow!
Abby & Rothwell met in college on a film set in Chicago, and moved to Los Angeles shortly after graduating. So naturally, with their backgrounds in film, they totally understood our desire for finding the perfect light for their pictures. One of our favorite moments of their Lake Arrowhead engagement session was actually hustling with them from one sunny spot to the next. No other moment in our lives has made us feel as close to fairies running around in a magical forest wonderland than our time with Abby & Rothwell. They braved the cold with grace, and were the perfect couple for our forest adventure!
Abby & Rothwell, thank you for exploring the wilderness with us during your Lake Arrowhead engagement session! And for showing us the beautiful Strawberry Peak! We’re as bummed as you guys that we didn’t see any bears. On the one hand, we would have loved to see some, or at least one, but on the other hand, it’s probably best we didn’t! Not sure what we would have done…
