Cassie and Anthony

Untitled photo

We went up to Sugar Pine Point on the northeastern side of Lake Tahoe, which is on the California side, to make Cassie and Anthony’s engagement photos. If you live anywhere near there, you should go and visit. It’s a beautiful place.

And they have bears there, which we can attest to, because right after we finished filming Cassie and Anthony, we met one. He didn’t look so big and there was a fence between us and him, so for reasons too stupid to say, I decided it was safe to approach him and take his picture. Besides, he didn’t look so big.

And there was a fence between us. But as I got closer to him, he got a little curious and stepped over that fence and on his hind legs, he was huge. So I skedaddled back to the safety of the car and we went home.

But before the bear, we took quite a few photos, twenty-five of which you can see here. Cassie and Anthony are a beautiful couple and right after we finished the shoot, they decided to hire us to photograph their wedding and they gave us a deposit on the spot. That was way cool.

Anyway, if you get a chance to go to Sugar Pine Point, bring a camera, because oftentimes the water is so clear you can see the bottom. The water’s cold though, so swimming might be a little dicy and of course, lookout for bears.

PS. If you scroll down through these photos, you can see the bear, just before he came over the fence.
