A ball gown in the forest is always a good idea. This romantic forest and ferns engagement session took place at Trinidad State Beach Park. This beautiful woodland trail wanders along a creek and down to the beach. Mostly smooth with a few steeply graded sections, shoes with a decent tread are a must. Be sure to check the soles of your dress shoes as they are typically suited to sports somewhere between ballroom dancing and curling rather than hiking.

Where the forest meets the sea is a particularly accurate description of Trinidad State Beach and the main reason I love it for engagement sessions. Did you know that stepping on mushrooms helps them propagate? Now you do.
