we showed up to kat and david’s orange county engagement session to find chains and gates locking us out. unbeknownst to us (and the park service, apparently, since the website still listed it as open!) the previous month of rainy socal weather caused muddy conditions, forcing the park to close down for a spell. a quick brainstorm and a caravan later, we drove into coto de caza for some open space all to ourselves. the weather gave us some serious pacific northwest vibes (really though - there was even fog on the mountains as i drove out of town), so we embraced the chill and went for a stroll through the trees. a thousand kisses and one arm-wrestling match later, we said our goodbyes. can’t wait for their beer-drenched celebration this summer!
