"Love comforteth like sunshine after rain". William Shakespeare

We find that engagement sessions are a great opportunity for Keith and his bride-to-be and groom-to-be to really get to know each other before the big day.

When we schedule an e-session, we ask the couple if there is a place that has meaning for them, somewhere that is special. The bride and groom live in the Los Angeles area, the wedding is in Paradise Valley, they are in the Scottsdale area often to visit family and work on wedding plans. We threw around some ideas, but we wanted the session to be uniquely special to this couple, not just a pretty location.

This bride-to-be mentioned that Lake Arrowhead, California was that spot, that special place.

Lake Arrowhead is a perfect backdrop for their love story to begin and continue. The minute you start climbing the mountain, the highway falls away behind you while the smog of the LA area quickly disappears revealing stunning blue skies, tall pine trees and air so fresh with one breath you start your own love story with this scenic lake setting.

One summer 10 years ago while visiting Lake Arrowhead, the bride was encouraged by her sister to take water ski lessons at the local water ski school. Guess who her instructor was that day? Yes, none other than the groom-to-be. As they say, the rest is history.

Such a beautiful story that perfectly represents how love stories happen.

Ten years later, the sun is still shining.
