I have been Eastern Sierra almost once a year. It’s the most beautiful place in California at fall. Aspen leaves turn to yellow from September, starting at high elevation to low elevation. At the middle of Oct, when climate get colder, you can see snow at top of the mountain and yellow leaves at foot of mountain. Its just perfect background of engagement and pre-wedding session.
I had such chance to shoot this couple’s engagement session last year. We left LA at Friday afternoon, merging into the bad traffic. After 5 hours driving, we arrived our cabin at late night. Saturday morning, we started to explore the Eastern Sierra area. First, we visited Mono lake, and then Bodie Ghost Town. After lunch we arrived Mammoth lake at late afternoon. We were shocked when saw the Aspen forest along the lake. The Leaves were pure yellow without any green color. The sky light filtered by those leaves was turn to kind of soft and warm light, scattering on them. Temperature was low, but we all exited and worked couple hours till sunset.
We left this amazing place at Sunday morning, with those beautiful photos and unforgettable memories.
Eastern Sierra, we will back.
