A few weeks back I had the pleasure of shooting and engaged couple up at Palomar Mountain. I have to admit, the hike almost killed me. I had about 50 pounds of equipment on my back and a heavy tripod and light stand. After a two mile hike, we entered a clearing to our destination. What a great place to take a photo, and it was the place they had spent some time together at the beginning of their relationship. So, it was only fitting that their engagement photo be taken here. It was a haul, but it was worth it.
