Pricila+Donnie Social Distancing in the Woods of Shaver Lake, CA

I think I met the cutest couple, Priscila+ Donnie and they're gonna get married August 1! They originally had to push back their May wedding due to Covid and weren't planning on pushing it back again. When Priscila told me that she wanted woodsy, I was like "giiiiiirl, I'll give you woodsy" so I hiked my fat butt around Shaver Lake trying to find a spot and man I found a spot that I will most likely use multiple times too. I love meeting my wedding clients during their engagement sessions and getting a chance to get to know them and learning their personalities and story. I could tell right away that these two were deeply in love and just wanting to celebrate it, that they were fun loving yet reserved; and I could tell with one question just who the silly yet decisive one was. "Are ya'll ok with kissing?", I always try to ask prior to prompting it. Some people are ok with pda and some just aren't; and that's ok! Donnie was all excited and was like "YES!" while Priscila wasn't sure how to answer right away, but after their first kiss in front of me ( and my niece who was assisting me with my light) I think she just embraced the little audience because from that point on when I gave that prompt there wasn't an ounce of hesitation from her. I love when that happens with my clients. I love when they're comfortable enough around me to let any guard or reservation down and especially when they're willing to meet me in the woods during a pandemic.
