Last Sunday, we were determined to out smart the weather….although I can’t say we outsmarted it, but we braved the cold, wind and mud (more on that later…). I met Carissa and Chad at Book Family Farms in (not so sunny Chico, Ca) for a fun, romantic, rustic chic engagement session. We started off the day in the hay barn with a few unwanted guests… 2 cows who desperately wanted our attention. We ended up calling them ‘creeper cows’ as they would not stop staring at us. I think they were trying to hypnotize or brainwash us into giving them food…
I LOVED all the personal and fun props Carissa brought to the engagement session!
When I was location scouting Book Family Farms before the session I saw this perfect dirt road leading off into the distance and knew it would make for a fantastic photo. And then it rained…and perfect dirt road became evil muddy nightmare. I naively asked Chad and Carissa to follow me out to the road for a photo when…we all sunk into the pit of the stickiest mud I’ve ever encountered. By the time we had walked the 20 yards to where I wanted to photograph, we had all gathered at least 5 inches (no joke) of mud on the bottom of our shoes. It was extremely hard to move in, but made for a really good laugh
Carissa and Chad I had an absolute blast!! Thank you again for being such good sports dealing with the mudI am SO excited and can’t wait to photograph your wedding next June at Cory’s Country Inn.
