I first met Bryan and Nokie when it came time for their engagement session. Nokie, had expressed to me that she REALLY wanted photos done in the snow. Bryan is an avid hunter and loves anything outdoors, and Big Bear was the perfect place.
In So Cal, we get snow, however, its hard to determine when it will snow....so Nokie and I decided we would pick a month and watch the weather. Winter was late... and we decided to just go ahead and schedule the session. And low and behold it SNOWED that weekend.
IN driving up to the mountains, we were able to spend a lot of time together. They were so fun and the conversation just flowed as we got to know more about each other, and them as a couple, and soon to be family with their two beautiful daughters.
With their love for the Outdoors, they of course, choose a venue in the mountains under the trees, and let me tell you, it was perfect!!
