Lost lake is a hidden gem in the Fresno area for some really stunning engagement photos!

Today we are sharing Jeremy and Vi’s engagement session because on this day exactly 3 years ago, they made their relationship officially official! From friends to boyfriend and girlfriend.

Vi and Jeremy began their session by letting me know that they are awkward in front of the camera…like right out of the car gave me the heads up hah!

A conversation we’ve had with clients over and over again because everyone gets a little nervous when the camera comes out. We understand how concerning it can be before a photo session when you’re feeling nervous.

Let’s squash those nerves real quick! Your session will not be awkward with us behind the camera! We are there to coach our clients through sessions every step of the way. Prompting is one of the main tools in our arsenal; we’ll give you action items and things to do with each other rather than pointing a camera at your face and saying “Smile!”

Lost Lake engagement photos are one of our go-to spots when clients want a local session with an outdoorsy feel.

California sunsets are the best! Golden hour in California just can’t be beat! Vi & Jeremy would know because they made their relationship official at Coachella! Their friendship started back in Pharmacy school where they met, even though it took awhile for them to find their person in each other. It’s so special to photograph couples who have built such a solid foundation in their friendship together. Shooting their engagement session at lost lake honestly felt like we were all long lost friends.

At one point Vi tells me, “We’re totally good with sitting poses” since I had mostly been having them doing things standing and walking. I immediately thought of this random patch of white wildflowers we had walked past earlier “How about laying down” I asked them! And then we captured this magical photo!
