All week long leading up to this session I was hoping for some wildflowers down at Niles Canyon. If you have never heard of Niles, it’s a little historic suburb near Fremont, CA. I highly recommend taking the Niles Canyon Railway train through!
Anyway, back to the photo session – we started off the evening at the staging area. We walked down the path a little, and got some photos by the Alameda Creek. As the sun set, we hopped across the highway to Vallejo Mill Historical Park and found just what I was looking for! The little patch of yellow was perfect even though it was small. I am so glad we drove over to check it out right at golden hour.
Alyssa and I first met over 10 years ago when we went to high school together! I hadn’t seen her since graduation, but I knew her back then as a fun, genuine person. During this session I was happy to find that she is still as kind and fun as I remembered. I hadn’t yet met Justin, but having seen Alyssa’s posts on Facebook of all the fun things she and Justin have done together, I was so excited going into this session! They plan surprises, hang out with their families, and seem to have a fun relationship. All this despite living across the Bay from each other, so I knew they’d be a joy to work with! I love how Justin looks out for Alyssa’s best interests. You can see how much he cares for her in these photos.
Thanks, Justin and Alyssa, for allowing me to take your photos! I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I do!
