Laura + Haoqi, Crystal Cove Engagements

The light was great, the couple was charming…but the real plus from this shoot was the fact we all came out alive. A real live bobcat walked within 5ft of us and we saw a decapitated head of a very large rodent AND a rattlesnake was nearby. It was us against wildlife. You can probably tell who won.

Their wedding is in San Diego this summer. Wildlife watch out!

    ps: I wish we have a photo of us looking away from the bobcat, but I think surviving is good enough for me.
