Jeff and Kristen’s Santa Cruz camping engagement session

I am SO excited to share Jeff and Kristen’s awesome camping theme engagement session amongst the Santa Cruz redwoods. We always try to choose a location that is personal to the couple because it makes the photos that much more meaningful. The location Jeff and Kristen chose was the Cotillion Gardens campground where Jeff’s family has been going to camp for years and years. Not only that, but Jeff and Kristen’s first date was a camping trip, and as Kristin says, camping has always been “their thing” they do together. With all of that, what could be more perfect than a camping theme engagement session? We rounded up some fun props and headed out to Santa Cruz!

My goodness, these two are so cute. We were having so much fun in our make-shift tent!

I LOOOOOVE this one! The trees and surroundings were so beautiful!

One of the spots was thriving with poison oak and Kristen was wearing flip-flops. What a good fiance Jeff was to carry her across!

We had a little picnic with wine and cheese. Sounds like a good day to me!

What “camping trip” would be complete without roasting some s’mores? Okay, okay, we couldn’t start a real fire but Jeff and Kristen looked adorable with what we put together!

After that Jeff and Kristen sported a change of clothes and we headed up the trail to this awesome train trestle.

I love these! You two could not have BEEN any cuter!

Jeff and Kristen! Wow, what an incredible time we had with you two! We had a blast creating these fun images. Thanks for introducing us to an awesome campground too. We’ll have to go back for some camping fun! We can’t wait for your beach wedding next June!
