Annie & Runar's Russian Ridge Engagement Shoot
It's surprising to me (and kind of sad) that I've lived in California my whole life and there are still so many hidden gems in the Bay Area I have yet to see! Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve is just one of the beautiful landscapes I'd never been to before, but now I can add it to my list of gorgeous places!! Annie & Runar originally wanted to shoot on the road just down the street from their house in the mountains of Los Gatos. It sounded like a lovely plan, until the winter storms hit! Barraged with heavy rain, landslides and floods, our January shoot soon had to be rescheduled. In a way, we lucked out, because as spring rolled around and the rain died down, Annie came up with the idea for Russian Ridge and I was totally on board of course! The views from this peak were majestic and served as a lovely backdrop for this special engagement shoot. In just a couple months, these two will be saying their vows beneath the towering Redwoods at Saratoga Springs! I'd say they have a knack for finding breathtaking locations! Can't wait to capture more of their love story!
