If you’ve been following me, you know Shaver Lake is one of my favorite spots for any type of session. The tall pines, seasonal meadows, and gorgeous lakeside make Shaver Lake a perfect location – especially for an engagement session! Shaver Lake is within 30 miles of Fresno, about an hour-long drive. That means I don’t charge any extra mileage for sessions in Shaver Lake!
Chelsea + Nathan met on a blind date within a week of them (separately) celebrating their birthdays. Talk about the perfect gift!
Chelsea + Nathan had another reason for their engagement session at Shaver Lake.
Shaver Lake has always been a special + sacred place for their relationship. They go often, and recently became engaged on a birthday trip they took with family + friends to Shaver Lake!
Chelsea also asked if they could bring their dog, Clover, along for a few photos.
The answer to that is pretty much always going to be yes.
Clover took her job very seriously, and was a very good girl.
Soon, Nathan’s dad took Clover home and it was time to explore the forest a bit more.
Another exciting part about Shaver Lake? You can switch up locations within a 5 minute drive!
I love the green peasant dress that Chelsea wore for the first part of their engagement session!
It gave their session a more “folksy” vibe, and looked so gorgeous paired with the greenery and the lakeshore. Chelsea + Nathan wanted to mix it up, and switched outfits for the last portion of the session. We also changed up our location a bit more, and headed to the shoreline.
We finished their engagement session with some lanterns and the gorgeous forest scenery.
I can’t wait for Chelsea + Nathan’s wedding this upcoming May!
If it’s anything like their engagement session was, it’s going to be such a beautiful, joyful day.
