These Pinecrest lake engagement photos will have you SWOONING and so inspired for your own engagement pictures!
Laura & Timmy are self-described old souls and we knew a cozy cabin and quiet lake shoot would be the perfect fit for their engagement photos!! We started at Laura’s family cabin in Pinecrest where we captured photos of the two of them snuggling together on their porch hammock. They even drank some chai tea out of their personalized coffee mugs they received as an engagement gift from friends!
From there, we headed over to Pinecrest lake and pretty much had it all to ourselves! We timed the engagement shoot perfectly because it was before the city drains the lake for the winter but justttt before the first snow of the season! I’ve heard Pinecrest is stunning in the summer as well, but pretty busy!! If you plan to take engagement photos here, I highly recommend taking them on a weekday and/or at sunrise if possible!! Taking them on a weekday in winter ended up being perfectly quiet and serene for us!! It truly was the perfect place and time to take their photos because this spot has been so special to them over the years of dating!!
They’ve been dating since their college years together at Chico! They initially met in the dorms and remained friends throughout Chico and Greek life until their last semester when their friends set us up. They love traveling, going to new restaurants, cooking, wine tasting, going to farmer’s markets, and binging the latest shows! Their travels over the years have been extensive- Cape Cod, Seattle, Rome, Florence, Tuscany, Venice, and San Sabastian!
Laura & Timmy get married next fall in a local Sacramento vineyard and plan to have a speakeasy theme!! Their wedding will have almost 300 people and is definitely going to a party!!! I absolutely can’t wait!!!
