Samantha + Collin are a dream come true. They are game for any adventure, love one another enormously (and it shows!), and are ridiculously beautiful. When they mentioned shooting their engagement session in Big Bear, my heart was SO happy and I knew we would make magic. And man, did we.

Big Bear is a special place for S+C. They enjoy a white Christmas every year in their family cabin, celebrate with friends year round, and Collin works on the mountain as ski patrol (which is pretty badass). Adding this sentiment to their session made it that much better.

mountaintops + smoke bombs + sunset + a whole lotta love
