Engagement Photos at Pala Wilderness Preserve

real weddings


Temecula Engagement and Wedding Photographer


Kaitlin and Michael’s shoot was a breathe of fresh air during all this covid nonsense. Literally the air was crisp and amazing!

Right from the start of our shoot we connected so well and I could tell their chemistry was natural and romantic.

Kaitlin and Michael are from Temecula and wanted to have their shoot behind Palomar Mountain in the Pala area.

We found a wilderness preserve and met up at 6pm since it was a very warm day. Our shoot went until 7:45 and we got some amazing golden hour shots.

The Pala Wilderness Preserve closed by 4pm but we managed to walk in and get a few shots unnoticed. Shhhh…


We then proceeded to an area up the street that gave us an amazing view of the setting sun, a glowing field, and some pine trees for that mountain effect.

This shoot was a little bittersweet since I was told that they would have to postpone their August 2020 wedding to next year because of, well you know… coronavirus.

All in all, I am excited to be a part of their wedding day for both wedding photography and videography.
