We live just down the street from one of Oakland's many hidden gems, the Oakland Redwood Forest. Right in the middle of Oakland tucked in the hills is a gorgeous redwood forest. We typically spend a few days a week hiking here on my lunch break, it's dog friendly and gorgeous what more could you want from your neighborhood forest. So when these two told me they loved the outdoors I knew that the redwoods would be a perfect spot for their engagements. They brought along their super cute dog Max and we spent the gloomy afternoon running around until our time was up. Most of our time was spent laughing and loving on Max, basically a perfect engagement session.
