Ryan & Melissa – Engagement session in Chico

I met up with Ryan and Melissa on what seems like the last nice day of weather we have had around here!  This was April 30th!  Our entire month of May has been pretty darn yucky except for a few random days here and there.  Because it seems like every single engagement session in Chico some how ends up on the Chico State campus we decided to use the amazing park and beautiful orchards instead.  Much better choice in my opinion!!!  We started out in some orchards near their house.  Everything was soooooo green!  It was beautiful!  They brought along their dog Daisy who “kind of” behaved for pictures…..as good as you can expect for a dog!  We stayed at the orchard until we were one row away from getting mowed over by a giant tractor!  From there we headed out to Upper Bidwell Park.  If you have not been to Upper Park it is a real treat!  Just amazing views, tons of lava flows, swimming holes, and hiking trails.  It’s one of places I miss the most since moving away from Chico after graduating.

Ryan and Melissa’s wedding is this October  and I can’t wait for it to be here!  I just love photographing weddings and when it’s your friends it makes it even better!
